With Atlanta? I think not. I think that's going to be a close race. The Atlanta lineup is very strong -- arguably stronger than Washington, especially if J-Up and J-Hey hit like they can (and watch out for Andrelton Simmons at the top of the lineup, too). Sure, the Strasburg-led rotation is hart to match, but ATL isn't bad on that end either. Medlen et al. should be able to keep up and the Braves always seem to have minor league talent to draw on in abundance. If Teheran remains anywhere close to the performance he indicated in ST, watch out. They may lose out in the end, but I hardly think WAS will "have their way." We'll see.
