Who Can Make Or Break The Braves Season?

The Morning Show w/ John & Hugh

The Braves have a number of superstars, borderline All Stars, and legitimate projects and unknowns entering the season

For the most part we know what we're going to get from guys like Acuna, Albies, Freeman, but there certainly are some guys we really don't know what to expect.

Will Riley become the power hitter we expect and slug 30 bombs this season? Will Max Fried take the next step towards becoming an ace alongside Mike Soroka? Can Marcell Ozuna fill in the cleanup spot vacated by Josh Donaldson?

John Fricke and Hugh Douglas discuss which position player and which pitcher they feel can make or break the Braves season.

"Austin Riley because you let Josh Donaldson go," explains Hugh Douglas. "You're banking on him working his way out of the slump he was in. 

"Marcell Ozuna is now the guy tasked with filling that cleanup role," says John Fricke. "There was some video of his from Spring Training, the ball was just popping off his bat."
