86 is the win total that sports books have out for our Braves.

I like the over also as long as our pitching staff stays healthy.

Ditto.

As long as Kimbrel and Hudson are healthy, I predict 95 wins pretty easily.

We are gonna destroy most teams' 4th/5th starters.

Baseball Prospectus had us at 82.2 wins, although granted they don't have anybody winning more than 90 games, either way i think we are just as good as last year but much younger. I can see that causing us to lose a few games but I would be shocked if we didn't win 90 games. As weird as this sounds it all depends on Teheran, if he pitches to his potential and has a season like Mike Minor last year, we will be a 95 win team or more.

You could make a case for Teheran but I don't think he'll be starting when Beachy gets back, although I do agree that the 5th starter will the x factor that won't be just Teheran, it'll be Beachy as well.

Braves finish the 2013 regular season with a 96-66 record. 7 win improvement from last season, Fredi's first with Atlanta.
