Braving A Dilemma

The Braves’ outfield is a complete mess, they could pick three guys of the street who would play better than what they have now.  Where is the root of their problems?

Could it be that CF Jordan Schafer is hitting like what he is, a minor leaguer?  Or is RF Jeff Francoeur still swinging at everything?  Maybe it’s because LF Garrett Anderson can’t hit anymore?  Whatever the cause maybe, the Braves’ outfield is hitting, .237/.288/.327 combined, Matt Diaz and Greg Norton won’t be the solution to this problem; Josh Anderson’s playing in Detroit, Atlanta doesn’t have any outfield prospects, no good outfielder is available.  The Braves are in trouble, big trouble.
