Uncustomed Heroes of 2017: Braves
The Braves, for most of the season, were caught in the 4-team blockade that made up the rest of the NL East (not including Washington). None of these teams were truly ready for prime time, and the Braves showed early on that they were pretty shoddily-made up. The pitching was too old, the infielders were too inexperienced, and once Freddie Freeman got injured there wasn't really a point to anything.
Julio Teheran, for once, had a comparatively down season, with an inflated ERA and some stuff that didn't stack up to his usual material. Hopefully this won't be a trend.
Coming Tomorrow- They came out of nowhere and nearly made the playoffs. Wonder how they'll shock the world next year.
