The Atlanta Braves ended their 2011 season with an ugly collapse. This historic collapse was caused by many issues—but their offense may have been the most glaring.
Things got real slow at the end of the season, but the entire Braves team was inconsistent at the plate all year long.
Despite a bad ending to this season, we all know guys like Brian McCann will stay strong and impact the offense in a big way next year.
Still, if the Braves want to have a good 2012 season, everyone needs to step up their game.
With that said, I think the performance of these five batters will prove to be the most crucial next season.
