Custom Card of the Day: Simmons Edition
Just like usual, the Braves have very quietly leapt to first place in the division. With all the things exploding below them, it's kinda a foregone conclusion that the Braves are in first. They have the least amount of things wrong with them.
I mean, the Braves still have problems. Uggla's far gone, the pitching staff is a bit scattered, there's a lot of youth, yada yada yada. Long story short, they're playing well. And Andrelton Simmons is the main catalyst here.
For a good two seasons, he's been one of the best defensive players in the NL. Like, the Braves needed someone like him, a defensive mainstay, especially as people like Brian McCann and Chipper Jones were leaving. I just hope he can keep it up, because I think he could become a huge leadership type of player for the Braves.
But will they stay on top amidst the madness? We've got a few more months to find out.
Coming Tomorrow (?)- Did somebody say massively hyped sophomore talents?
