    Not One, but TWO Braves Rotations?

    By Kent Covington

    Earlier this week we pointed out that the Braves boast the deepest pitching staff in baseball (If you missed it, here it is). But the most vivid illustration of this occurred to me just this afternoon. The Braves are so ridiculously pitching rich that they could literally field TWO viable big league starting rotations…

    Braves RHP's Tommy Hanson and Jair Jurrjens

    ROTATION #1
    Tim Hudson
    Brandon Beachy
    Kris Medlen
    Julio Teheran
    Arodys Vizcaino

    ROTATION #2
    Tommy Hanson
    Jair Jurrjens
    Mike Minor
    Randall Delgado
    JJ Hoover or Christhian Martinez

    RHP Tim Hudson is now the elder statesman of a very young staff.

    How’s THAT for depth?  And only one of the above starters is over the age of 26. Future look bright to you?

    On a separate note, Braves single game tickets go on sale March 5.  While the season opens April 5, we won’t see any action at Turner Field until the Braves’ April 13th contest against the Brewers.  Best start making your plans now, though. Home opener tickets sell quickly, especially when that opener falls on a Friday.
