MLB Odds Preview on New York Mets vs Atlanta Braves & TV InfoDate/time: Saturday, April 11th, 7:10 PM Location: Turner Field, Atlanta, Georgia TV: WCNN 680/WYAY Radio: 106.7, Braves Radio Network Spread: Braves -1½ One team looking to be a surprise element this year are the Atlanta Braves. Fans in the ATL have had an unpleasant off-season, as some of their better players and fan favorites have been shipped out in favor of some journeyman guys who have really made a major impact on the league to this point in their career.
The Braves are 4-0, for the first time since 1994! #BravesAreBack pic.twitter.com/VlOalBnn0E — Atlanta Braves (@Braves) April 11, 2015The feeling is that the Braves are saving their money for a rainy day, or more specifically for when they can load up on high-priced free agents when their new season opens. Listen to the top brass in Atlanta, though, and they will tell you that they are trying to build a team built on contact hitting and speed as opposed to one that thrives on power. It may sound ridiculous, but the fact of the matter is that the Braves showed a little bit of everything in sweeping the Miami Marlins to start the season. Next up for the Braves is a 3-game home stand versus the New York Mets. The Mets looked as though they might be a team that has power to burn, as they lit things up offensively during spring training. They certainly had a tough test to open their season, with 3 games against the Washington Nationals and arguably the best pitching rotation in baseball. What emerged in the first 2 games of hat series was a pitching duel that saw the teams split. The rubber game was where the Mets flashed a little of that power, roughing up Stephen Strasburg en route to a 6-3 win. If the Mets can get a good mix of hitting and pitching, they just might be able to contend in the NL East.
