This is a question I think we'll all be trying to answer for the duration of the Winter (and then trying to fix the problems that caused it). So, Atlanta All Day took a stab at the question, and broke it down to three factors; offense, depth, and defense. Pretty simple when you think about it, but you can't deny that those three areas had a serious impact on what went down in the last month or so for the Braves.
With the minor league season coming to an end, it's time to dish out postseason awards to those who deserve them. The winner of the MVP award shouldn't surprise you, as Jose Peraza walked away with that hardware. I don't want to spoil the rest of the picks though, so check the link out and see who Bleacher Report saw as deserving candidates for some solid awards.
I'm not going to stand here and tell you that 2014 turned out to be a disappointment for the Braves, there's a good chance you already know that. Therefore, decisions regarding the future of the Braves are likely to follow the end of a painful season. Whether it's the future of Frank Wren and Fredi Gonzalez, or where certain players will be playing come 2015.
Those pesky Yankees just don't know when to quit, huh? The Yanks currently sit five-games behind the Athletics for the final AL Wild Card spot, and with the season ticking down quicker and quicker, they're going to need a few more walkoff wins. This time, it was a Chase Headley grounder in the bottom of the ninth against Toronto for the 3-2 New York win. Clocks ticking, New York. Make your moves fast.
It was sort of strange when Ron Washington resigned just a few weeks ago. While the Rangers have been struggling, it was an unexpected, surprising move.

Take it for what you will, the full press conference is in the link to see.
