"It seems that were off to a new season, a brand new day" says Bobby Cox, manager of the Atlanta Braves. The year is 2004, March 27, as the days approach to a new season, and the hopes begin, for a world championship.

During the offseason, the Braves made some interesting moves. starting with trading drew to the LA Dodgers, the fans knew that this year, would be one of the hardest, theyve had. "The pressure is all on us this year. People expect for us to get back into the playoffs like weve done the past 12 years." words from an older, more experienced Andrew Jones. A significant trade to help the Braves is the trade of Oakland hurler Tim Hudson. "Im very excited to take on the National League, and pitch against my friend and fellow teammate Mark Mulder.

Braves will be looking forward to this season, as they will, once again, attempt to make the playoffs.

The season starts off against the New York Mets, with Veteran John Smoltz pitching against Pedro Martinez.
