I'll start with #5 in the rotation. It appears that starters 1-4 will be Derek Lowe, Javier Vazquez, Jair Jurrjens, and Kenshin Kawakami. That leaves Jorge Campillo, Tom Glavine, Tommy Hanson, and Jo-Jo Reyes battling for the last spot. So, who's going to get it? I believe it comes down to Glavine and Hanson. Glavine is a Braves legend, but struggled last year (2-4, 5.54 ERA) and is coming off surgery. Hanson has looked great in spring training, but he's only 23 and putting him up early could be a gamble. So here's what I would do: Name Glavine #5. You owe it to the man who's given you 17 years of his life to give him the benefit of the doubt. You then place Hanson has the #1 starter in AAA and see how it goes. If Hanson is still looking sharp and Glavine struggles or one of the starters go down, Hanson should be up in the majors so fast it makes his head spin.
Now to the Center Fielder issue. This one seems to be much closer than the fifth starter question, as it appears to be a neck-and-neck-and-neck race between Josh Anderson, Gregor Blanco, and Jordan Schafer. All young guys, all left handed batters, and all having impressive points during Spring Training. Blanco was the CF last year (played in 144 games), but his numbers were a little below mediocre (.251 BA,1 HR, 38 RBIs). Let's compare their stats in Spring Training so far (according to ESPN.com):
PLAYER AVG G AB R H 1B 2B 3B HR RBI
------ --- - -- - - -- -- -- -- ---
J Schafer .385 8 26 10 10 17 4 0 1 1
J Anderson .242 10 33 6 8 12 2 1 0 4
G Blanco .167 3 6 1 1 1 0 0 0 1
I believe that the stats give you my answer. The starting CF needs to be Jordan Schafer. It might be the great first name he's got, but I feel like he can be more consistent than any of the other choices at CF.
