Here are some matchups I am most looking forward to once the season starts.
April 16-17 vs Kansas City Royals
This early 2 game series will be the Braves’ first experience with the new year-round Interleague play. They will go up against former Brave Jeff Francoeur.
April 26-28 at Detroit Tigers
The Braves have the opportunity to play against the defending American League champions, which include the past 2 American League MVPs in Justin Verlander and Orlando Cabrera.
May 9-12, at San Fransisco Giants
The Braves’ first of 2 chances to go up against the defending World Series Champions, who are looking to establish a new dynasty.
May 27-30 at/vs Toronto Blue Jays
This is a strange 4 game series where the first 2 games will be played in Toronto and the last 2 in Atlanta. The Blue Jays have completely changed their team by picking up some pieces from the Marlins. On slightly related note, this is also a rematch of the 1992 World Series.
June 28-30 vs Arizona Diamondbacks
The first chance for these trading partners to play against each other. It will be Martin Prado’s first series in Atlanta as an opponent.
July 26-28 vs St. Louis Cardinals
One word: Revenge.
