The Atlanta Braves will continue to battle the Philadelphia Phillies for first place in the National League East. They aren't far behind the Phillies, but in the past few seasons they've always had a tough time catching them, and if they do, Atlanta never holds the lead like it used to.
Is this Atlanta team any different from years past? Do they need to upgrade the roster with more power to fight the Phillies? Or should they just stay the same?
The MLB trade deadline is fast approaching, and that means a whirlwind of trade rumors will begin to surface. Some have already started about the Braves, but no moves have been made.
Will the Braves be buyers at the July 31 trade deadline? Or is this all talk? Only time will tell, but until then I'll update you on the latest from the rumor mill regarding the Atlanta Braves.
