Can Braves Challenge Nationals in 2018?
We're into June and the Braves are right there with the Nationals. If Atlanta is going to challenge, another top of the rotation pitcher is needed. Will GM Alex Anthopolous spend the resources to acquire one? Highly doubtful, the Braves haven't deviated one iota from their plan during this rebuild.
A wildcard is the best hope this year. But this is baseball and when you get into the playoffs, who knows?
