In my opinion, no. In the 90s, we hade 4 guys who could have been #1s elsewhere. With Hudson, we have a true ace, but the guys behing him while good and able to be coached up by Leo, can not rival Glavine, Maddox, Smoltz, Avery, Wohlers, and shot out to papz , Leibrandt. Unless we are willing to have a Yankee sized payroll, I don\'t see us having a rotation like that again. But Hudson as an ace is an upgrade from last year. And Smoltz(again cause of papz\' optimism) I now believe can be a full time starter.

I have this feeling the ace of the staff this year will be John Thompson... he\'s getting better every single year. This will be his second season under Leo...

I can\'t lie to you, I\'m also skeptical on Smoltz. But he\'s JOHN SMOLTZ DARNNIT! :P Dan Kolb will be serviceable as our closer. So hopefully Smoltzy can bring his 97 mile per hour heater and devastating slider back into the rotation and win 16 games. (Without blowing out his arm *crossing fingers*)

Win estimation per pitcher (mines )

Hudson 17-7 sub 3.30 ERA
Smoltz 15-8 sub 3.9 ERA
Hampton 15-11 sub 4.2 ERA
Thompson 19-11 3.7 ERA
Ramirez please stay healthy!!!! 14-9 sub 3.3 ERA

Kolb 38 saves 2.8 ERA

Is this wishful thinking?

It\'s early, but RF Raul Mondesi is the talk of Braves\' camp, looking fit, flashing opposite-field power. \"I\'ve seen a lot of looks on a lot of faces in a lot of spring-training camps,\" Braves GM John Schuerholz says. \"This guy is happy to be here.\" Adds manager Bobby Cox, \"He really has made a great impression on all the players, everyone. He\'s always been one of the hardest-playing players around. You could never say anything about the way he plays the game.\"

I\'ve also read another article stateing that Mondesi\'s body is rock solid and he looks like he\'s in the best shape in a long time. Things are looking up!

I only became a fan in \'89 so a lot of those names aren\'t familiar to me. And I nowhere near followed it as closely as I do now. I still can\'t watch a full game, but I do pay attention to who is on the roster outside of just the big names. I think the internet has made me a better Braves fan, though I have been a fan for a long time.

Glen Hubbard is/was a coach for us I think. And I remember Pascual Perez. But the others are foreign to me. LoL SW that\'s probably around when I started watching them also. It\'s okay though saintsfan... we know you are an oldtimer

I started watching the Braves when I was 9. That was 1978 I think. Man, it sucks to be old. Bob Hope (not the comedian) was once the promotions guy for the Braves -- and later he made all their travel arrangements. He wrote a book about his experience with the team and Ted Turner etc. You guys should look for it.
