Atlanta Braves' Offseason Questions That Still Need to Be Answered

The Atlanta Braves front office has spent quite a pretty penny this offseason, shelling out a combined $27.5 million in 2013 to Tim Hudson ($9 million), Paul Maholm ($6.5 million) and Brian McCann ($12 million) in addition to the $75.5 million contract that will be given to newly-acquired center fielder B.J. Upton over five years.

Money doesn't always answer the burning questions of the offseason though. 

Sure, Upton solves a lot of problems with his bat, gloves, legs and youth.

Others were solved by Atlanta bringing back most of the roster that won 94 games a season ago.

Even the leadership role vacated by the retirement of Chipper Jones will likely be a non-issue (or as close to a non-issue as the absence of a legend can be), as the confident Jason Heyward will be aided by the fiery Kris Medlen, the comical Tim Hudson and the experienced Brian McCann. 

Still though, questions abound.
