The Atlanta Braves had a good year this season by most means. Won the Wild Card, overcame a plethora of injuries, and could have easily beaten the San Francisco Giants in the NLDS if a few more things went their way.

Following Bobby Cox’s retirement, the Braves organization has already made a good move in hiring former Marlins manager and Braves third base coach Fredi Gonzalez. Despite his 276-279 record with the Marlins the last 3 1/2 years, Gonzalez has garnered a good amount of respect in the league, and was Cox’s No. 1 choice to take over the Braves.

Gonzalez will also be given the chance to coach games against his former organization the Marlins, who just so happen to be in the same division as the Braves. Should be a spicy season.

Here are the moves the Braves need to pull off to make it to the NLCS next year.

Editor’s Note: Notice Eric Hinske, Omar Infante, and Martin Prado are in the forefront in this picture, while Melky Cabrera is in the back. Yeah, that’s not by accident.
