14 Reasons Braves Will Win 14th Straight Title
The Atlanta Braves start the 2005 regular season this afternoon. AJC’sDavid O’Brien compiles a list of “14 Reasons Why the Braves will win their 14th consecutive division title.” The most intersesting is this one:
Chipper Jones never finishes anywhere but first. Look it up. Actually you can’t, at least not all of it. So you’ll have to trust us. Since Little League, he’s never finished a season on a team that wasn’t in first place. Closest he came was 1992, when he started the year at Durham but was promoted to Greenville. Durham didn’t finish first, but Greenville was a 100-win juggernaut that did.
That’s an incredible streak, indeed.
