Back in the early 90's the Braves had a rotation of young starters they called their Young Guns. It consisted of Tom Glavine , John  Smoltz, Steve Avery ,Tommy Greene,and later Kevin Millwood, Jason Marquis,and Jason Schmidt. The later three later traded for what seems to be the Braves weakness hitting. Now jump a Head to the present and the future looks bright again  with the likes of Tommy Hanson , Jair Jurrjens , Kris Medlen, and in the Farm system Todd Redman,  Jo Jo Reyes , James Parr and  Mariano Gomez, the Braves will be dominating the Post Season for years to come.
