I was not a big fan of our rebuild which started in 2014. I am still not. We purposefully sold off a great team. We did it for the money. We finished 1st in 2013 and tied for 2nd in 2014. Here is a great summary of where we are now though. We are finally back to where we started.
One win away from a World Series appearance for a second straight year, The Braves find themselves reaping the benefits of the painful rebuilding process that began after the 2014 season and concluded earlier than expected in 2018, with the capture of the first of four consecutive National League East titles.
One of the most valuable products of the rebuild, Ian Anderson, will start Game 6 of the National League Championship Series against the Dodgers on Saturday night at Truist Park. The 95-loss 2015 season wasn’t an enjoyable one. But it was one that put Atlanta in position to select Anderson with the third overall pick in the 2016 MLB Draft.
