The Atlanta Braves are one of the oldest and most storied franchises in the Major Baseball League. Established in 1871 as the Boston Red Stockings, the Braves are one of two remaining charter franchises in the National League. After several name changes and a brief relocation in Milwaukee, the Braves finally settled in Atlanta in 1966. Owned by Liberty Media, they became known as “America’s Team” thanks to their games being broadcast nationally by TBS from the 1970s until 2007.
They fielded powerhouse teams in the past but are recently in a rebuild and both fans and gamblers should be patient with them.

Atlanta Braves Record
1914 marked the first World Series won by the franchise as the Boston Braves. In 1957, they won another World Series as the Milwaukee Braves. When they relocated to Atlanta in 1966, it took them a while to return to the World Series. Between 1991 to 1999, they played in five World Series and won in 1995. They also won an unprecedented 14 straight division titles between 1991 to 2005. Their last came in 2013.
The Braves probably miss the old days when they ruled the division like a dictator. Since 2006 however, they have only won the division once and have generally been in the middle usually finishing no better than 2nd but no worse than 4th. In 2015, they finished 4th in both overall record and division record at .447. They particularly struggled against Washington Nationals who held a 14-5 record over them.
By trading away Shelby Miller, the Braves openly admitted they were in a rebuilding process. As far as strengths go for the Braves, it’ll have to be the youth and prospects they now have. In a couple of years they may be fielding another dynasty-caliber team but for the mean time they will be close to the bottom with both their offense and defense.
It’s possible the Braves’ prospects are ahead of schedule and suddenly compete with the ultra-competitive NL East but even with that best case scenario, the Braves won’t be looking at anything more than close to a winning record. At worst, the prospects look very raw and their ragtag group of players can’t produce anything close to a MLB-caliber offense. Last place in the majors is a definite possibility.
