Fear the Chop

The Braves started off the new season with a (less than resounding) 11-10 win over the LA Dodgers. Andruw Jones, who was robbed of the MVP award last year picked up right where he left off, homering and driving in 4 runs. So we'll see. Again this year the "smart" guys pick somebody else, usually either the Mets or Phillies to finally win the NL East...but until one of them proves it, I think the Braves are still the team to beat. The offense this year should be improved, especially if Chipper doesn't miss half the year. 3 errors on opening day ain't pretty, but the defense should still be sound. I think it will be a good regular season...prior to the annual Bobby Cox can't manage a short series season.
