To win the division 13 straight years with a continuously decreasing budget, I would say they could atleast make a strong argument.

And I'm thinking they'll make it 14 straight this year. No baseball team has ever run off a string of division-winning seasons like this.

On the other hand, they probably wouldn't have won in 1994 (Expos had the best record in baseball before the strike), and in all that time they've only won one World Series. Cox is great about getting the most of his players during the season (and having a stellar pitching coach in Leo Mazzone doesn't hurt either), but when the postseason rolls around, he invariably gets outmanaged.

Since 1992, the Blue Jays have won the World Series twice, the Florida Marlins twice, and the Yankees three times. The Braves have won it just once in those 13 years. Schuerholz and Cox have put together an unsurpassed string of seasons, but the only thing that really totally matters is who is holding up that World Series trophy come October.

Ask the fans of Atlanta. Two years ago during the Cubs/Braves playoff series, there were as many Cubs fans at Turner Field as their were Braves fans.

I don't know much about the history of GM-manager combos, but in my lifetime, there has been no tandem better (in my opinion) than these two guys.

I do agree with you that they look pretty good for a repeat for the division title this year, as well. Tim Hudson was a really key pickup.
