I really don’t know much about the Braves but from what I’ve read it should be another lonely existence for them this season, except for the fact that they are moving into the beautiful new SunTrust Park 10 miles outside of downtown Atlanta.
It feels right to come up with something sentimental to say about Turner Field but nothing comes to mind. It was probably the ballpark I did see the most on television, aside from Fenway, when we would get a handful of Braves games on Turner.
But as far as attracting partisans who feel proud about their team’s performance on the field, Atlanta may be lonely this summer.
I’m looking forward to seeing the shortstop in his first full season and Freddie Freeman’s power is real. But the Braves should compete for no more than fourth place in their own division.
New York Mets
Meanwhile the Mets bring back almost the same roster they played with last season – a roster that earned them a spot in the Wild Card Game only to be shutout by Madison Bumgarner and the Giants.
Syndergaard is all the intrigue in New York for me this season. I don’t believe the Mets are on the same level as the Cubs, Dodgers, or even the Nats but I wonder how quickly Syndergaard will win a Cy Young.
It must be difficult for someone with his stuff to pick and choose the right spots to pitch to contact, but if he gets a nose for as much, he becomes the best pitcher in baseball.
I think he takes a step forward as a pitcher this season without necessarily improving his stuff a lick, but that it’s not until 2019 that he surpasses Kershaw, wins the Cy and is a sure bet to completely baffle a team like the 2017 Braves.
Until then, he’s just the least bit susceptible in spots like these.
