The Braves are widely seen as in the top tier of rosters in the league, if not at the top, Mets-loving PECOTA set aside. Despite one of the more glaring wholes among contending rosters, in Atlanta’s left field, and options at shortstop that are either unproven or uninspiring, the rest of the roster is so utterly complete that the overall team still projects to be elite. It certainly helps that they see Vaughn Grissom as a solid starter, rather than a liability. Here’s hoping that they are right, or if they are wrong, it is due to a breakout.
