There was no secret to the Braves success throughout their 14-year run as division leaders. It was all about pitching. Sure, the timely homerun by Fred McGriff, David Justice, and then Chipper Jones helped, but it's Glavine, Maddux, and Smoltz who had the wins by their names.
Tonight the Braves look to keep their record perfect. What stuck out most in win number one was the relief pitching. It's a different type of game from the Braves glory days. The bullpen plays an ever-important role with starting pitchers only expected to go 6 innings deep.
The revamped bullpen provides Braves fans reason to expect big things in '07.
