1. Atlanta Has More Power and More Speed Than the Cardinals
Some things are simple in the complicated game of baseball. Who has more speed and who has more power offensively? In a five game series where every little thing is magnified who has the player who can pinch run and steal a key base? Who has the player who can miss a pitch and still hit it out on sheer power alone?
The answers to both of these questions are Braves players. Taking an unbiased look at both rosters points to one simple fact, Atlanta has more speed and power than the Cardinals and that should show offensively.
Atlanta has a speed weapon in Billy Hamilton and a power packed lineup that is going to give the Cardinals all they can handle. Atlanta is the better offense if healthy and they live up to expectations.
