Braves Unveil Wild Card Starting Lineup

Fredi Gonzalez has announced his lineup for Friday's Wild Card game, and it is noticeably absent a six-time All-Star:

  1. Michael Bourn, CF
  2. Martin Prado, LF
  3. Jason Heyward, RF
  4. Chipper Jones, 3B
  5. Freddie Freeman, 1B
  6. Dan Uggla, 2B
  7. David Ross, C
  8. Andrelton Simmons, SS
  9. Kris Medlen, P

With all the nagging injuries to Brian McCann, it was determined that Ross is a better option right now. McCann apparently would resume starting some games if the Braves advance to the next round. That's an interesting decision considering that McCann (.630 OPS) was a slightly better hitter in September than was Ross (.604). We'll see if it works.
