Bleacher Report sucks.

Also I think that you can definitely make a case that the Braves have a much better offensive team.

Position by position off the top of my head- I'm talking just offensively

Brian Mccan over Ruiz
Dan Uggla over whoever plays 2nd for the Phillies (including Utley)
Jason Heyward probably better than Ibanez and Francisco
Alex Gonzalez and Jimmy Rollins are close
Martin Prado had a hell of a year last year


I'll take Polanco over broken Chipper Jones and Howard over whoever they can throw at first base

Pitching however isn't even close

i'm going to make a bold prediction and say that francisco and mayberry will come out of nowhere and help the team offensively.

I am a Ben Francisco fan and think he can come out of nowhere like Werth did in 2008, but I'm looking at it from that outside perspective that Bleacher Report probably is. John Mayberry still doesn't have me convinced that he will even make the big team.

Mayberry looked awesome at lehigh valley last season. He's also consistant as a hitter and can produce runs.

Fransisco as a starter is definitely capable of a .275, 15-20 HR, 60+ rbi season. Mayberry Jr. I'm not so sure about. Dude's been floating around the minor leagues for years now and we've probably seen all he has to offer.

he's looked decent from what i've seen.

i am pretty sure it will all work out. if they are mired in mediocrity before the all star break expect a shake-up.

and this whole panic over the offense is getting old. Even without Utley the Philles still have a B- offense that I'm sure a team like the pirates would be happy to have.

I expect a big year from Howard, Rollins, and Chooch with Ibanez or Fransisco as the wild card. Interested to see if Ibanez can continue the success he's had in the three spot.

Bleacher Report is awful when it comes to college football so I can only assume the same thing when it comes to MLB
