Jason Heyward and Freddie Freeman of the Atlanta Braves have made this week's cover of Sports Illustrated.

Let's hope this goes better than the last time a young Braves player made the cover. Here is one of my favorite quotes from the article:

Old farts and young bucks," is how Peter Moylan, the Braves' sidewinding Aussie reliever, describes his club's roster. Moylan is one of the more colorful figures in the Atlanta clubhouse, literally and figuratively: He has sleeve tattoos covering both arms, and he views the game with a jocular perspective that he perhaps developed when he was 21 and a pro baseball washout, driving around the Australian state of Victoria as a pharmaceutical rep and throwing only on the weekends. (Moylan, now 32, was rediscovered by major league scouts while pitching for Australia in the 2006 World Baseball Classic.) His characterization of this year's Braves is as accurate as it is expressive: No team in baseball is likely to be as polarized, agewise, as Atlanta.

It's a good article, and I'll definitely be picking up a copy or two of this week's SI.
