The offense is as inconsistent as ever. MVP candidate Freddie Freeman and Chris Johnson are the steadying force of the lineup. Everyone else has been nothing but streaky. I'm really hoping they can put some hits together against Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke and the Los Angeles Dodgers in games one and two of the first round. It won't be easy but that is how they'll have to win games. I just don't know if they can do it. No real secret to the Brave's key to winning. The offense must step up and do better. Playing against high caliber teams each night they can't wait for the next game. I think Atlanta can beat the Dodgers but it seems like it will take a brawl that goes seven games.
The offense has lots of weapons anchored by David Ortiz, Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia but also gets support from the rest of the lineup. This team should score no matter who they go up against. Doesn't mean they can't be shut down but they should always feel like they can score and make a comeback if need be.
