If you’re an Atlanta Braves fan, and as passionate in your devotion as I am, then the first half of the 2013 season has been a mix for you ranging from giddiness, joy, and unbridled expectation, to disappointment, frustration, and downright anger.  I’m not that emotional, but my friends tell me something about me has changed this season.  I point to my ball cap, my keychain, or some other item with the Braves logo on it and say, “Take a guess!”

Despite the ups-and-downs of the last 3+ months, the Atlanta Braves are still comfortably atop the NL East, and minus a few injury hiccups recently, are still poised to continue the stride to October.  I’m sure I’ll leave some highlight out that a fan will pounce on me for, but my goal is to not be too longworded.

That said, let’s take a look at the first half of the season so far, note some of the highs and lows, surprises – both pleasant and unpleasant, and then I’ll leave you to your own conclusions about what the rest of 2013 will look like.  Oh, and by the way, our own Julien Benjamin will have something to say about that as well in his 2nd Half Predictions article.
