Atlanta Braves Lineup

Atlanta Braves Lineup is a list of the players on the Atlanta Braves major league baseball team. "Lineup" can mean either the order of players in the batting order or in order of fielding position.

Team

The Braves have had a number of memorable second basemen over the past 50 seasons. Red Schoendienst is in the Hall of Fame and was a huge part of the '57 and '58 teams that went to the Worls Series, but played most of his career in St. Louis. Mark Lemke was a mainstay at 2nd in the 90s, as was Glenn Hubbard in the 80s. However, neither of these two were great offensive players. Davey Johnson had 3 good years with the Braves, hitting 43 homeruns and setting the record for second basemen.

Mark Teixeira had one great season with the Braves, but that doesn't qualify him for this list. For most Braves fans' the biggest name to come to mind is probably Fred McGriff. The Crime Dog did have a great career with several teams, but only 4 1/2 seasons were with the Braves. Orlando Cepeda is a Hall of Fame first baseman, but while he had some great years with the Braves, he spent most of his years in San Francisco. (Source: bleacherreport.com)

Andruw Jones would start in center field. He's the best defensive player of the bunch (looking at his time with the Braves - not this season obviously). Dale Murphy's arm would put him in right field. Henry Aaron would be playing left as he did in All-Star Games because Willie Mays was in center and Roberto Clemente was in right. He won three straight Gold Gloves in right field from 1958 to 1960. This outfield has about 1400 homeruns in a Braves uniform along with 18 Gold Gloves and over 4,000 career RBI. I'll take this group anyday. (Source: bleacherreport.com)
