We finish up the last of the player projections for the lineup regulars with Atlanta Braves center fielder Nate McLouth. A big year from a rejuvenated "Pittsburgh Nate" would go a long way towards helping the Braves back to another postseason appearance, and could be enough to put the Braves ahead of Philadelphia.
