Are you exhausted trying to form your own opinion about the Atlanta Braves. Well, have no fear, Talking Chop is here. Sit back, clear your mind, and let the TC bloggers tell you what to think and how to feel about this team.
||What's short and round, with a bat that makes a thunderous sound? Dan Uggla. His second half resurgence makes him better than any player the Braves could have possibly traded for. 8/10|
||Name the player who shops for his jerseys at Baby Gap, has forearms bigger than most men's biceps, and is now halfway to the all-time hitting streak. Dan Uggla has emerged as the player we thought he would, and with Bourn's addition and McCann's return, this team only has their best days ahead. 8/10|
||Who is best known for going streaking in the middle of summer? It was Archimedes, although he never hit safely in 29 straight games like Dan Uggla. Confidence 9/10.|
||As Karl Ravech mentioned on the air recently, Dan Uggla is probably the best deadline pick up by any team. I completely agree. My confidence is riding high at a 9/10.|
||It turns out that Dan Uggla was the Player To Be Named Later in the Dan Uggla trade, and he only arrived in Atlanta a month ago. With the offense going strong, all eyes will now be on the starting pitching staff, as JJ is ailing and we're all scratching our heads about Hanson. Minor and Teheran may be the most valuable players down the stretch. 7.5/10
