Which current Braves relievers are your favorites?
Two years ago, we conducted a series of polls to determine who your favorite current Atlanta Brave is. Chipper Jones was the heavy favorite, followed by Brian McCann, Jason Heyward, Tim Hudson and Martin Prado.
Things have changed the past couple of months in Braves Country. With that being said, Talking Chop will spend the next few weeks finding who your favorite Braves are.
The players will be split into three categories this time: hitters (4), starting pitchers (2) and relievers (2). After a couple rounds of voting, the top eight will then be entered into a bracket to determine who's on top.
After nearly 2,000 votes were cast, you decided Kris Medlen and Tim Hudson were your two favorite starting pitchers. Brandon Beachy was a distant third despite a strong showing on Twitter. Next up: relievers.
You can vote two ways: through the poll below, and through Twitter. After 72 hours of voting, I'll tally up the top two vote receivers to determine who advances to the Elite 8.
To vote on Twitter, use the hashtag #TeamAvilan, #TeamEOF, #TeamGearrin, #TeamKimbrel, #TeamMartinez or #TeamVenters.
