Maddux and Glavine Were Prophetic

How does a team strike out 16 times and still score 9 runs

The long ball. 

The Braves have 6 round trippers already this season, 2 from Justin Upton.  The Braves finished in the middle of the pack for HR in the NL last year, and near the bottom of all the MLB.  They kept company with Houston, the Mets and Seattle.  This Braves lineup presents no easy outs (except B.J. Upton and maybe Dan Uggla).  There is legitimate power up and down. 

After the 1990s when the Braves were built on solid pitching, could we be turning to the long ball*?  After all, chick do dig the long ball.

*Not saying the Braves pitching is not good now. Paul Maholm turned out an excellent outing last night.
