ARCHIE: I would love to be in Fredi Gonzalez???s shoes right now. That young Braves team has a winning mindset that they play every game like they can???t lose. And hardly anyone on the team is expected to be of the superstar status other than Kimbrel; and he is lights out. To handle and mentor a bunch of young guys with this potential has got to be exciting for Fredi.

STEPHAN: Fredi Gonzales of the Braves. Why? He is currently leading the Braves to one of the best records in baseball and has the most comfortable lead in the division. The Braves have all but wrapped up the division title, and Gonzales can now start looking ahead to post season to get his lineup, and pitching rotation ready to go for the playoffs. Not only that, but let???s look at the success that Fredi Gonzales has had so far. He took over for future Hall of Famer Bobby Cox and the rich history he had with the Braves, thus far he has made the playoffs in each of his two seasons, and has guided the Braves back to prominence in the division. Could this be the start of another huge run for the Braves? Time will only tell, but it is looking good.

JOSEPH: For me this is a no-brainer and there is only one answer: The Yankees. I have followed this team since the late 1950???s and have seen the good, the bad and the ugly. Just to go into the clubhouse dugout and put on the pinstripes and then make out that first lineup card would be a moment that would be tantamount to being in heaven for me. The only bigger rush would be walking out to present the lineup card to the umpires. I would probably screw it all up from there but hell I would have had my moment in Yankee Stadium.
