The Braves have gone from one of the teams of the decade to full rebuilding in a year and a half.
If they are going to rebuild, then they should blow the whole thing up.

Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – March 6, 2014
This September I pointed out that I am not very good at picking who will actually win the NL Central, but I AM good at figuring out that the consensus pick will probably fall short.
In 2009 everyone and their cow was picking the Cubs to win.
I picked the Reds. The Cardinals won (I picked the Cardinals for the Wild Card.)
In 2010 everyone and their moose was picking the Cardinals to win.
I picked the Brewers. The Reds won.
But with Zack Greinke going to the Brewers, I can’t help but wonder if the Brewers and their solid rotation and terrific line up, should be considered to be the favorites in a very winnable NL Central.
And would my pick be a year premature?
Am I the baseball predicting equivalent to that show Early Edition?
There’s only one way to test it:
I am going to pick the Pittsburgh Pirates to win the 2011 NL Central.
If the Brewers win in 2011 and the Pirates win in 2012, I will be FREAKED OUT!
