The Atlanta Braves headed into the 2015 All-Star break with a little bump in the road in Colorado.  They were swept in four games against the Rockies and lost five in a row (last game of the series with Milwaukee) to end the first half of the season at 42-47.

The NL East standings currently look like this…

Washington Nationals: 48-39

New York Mets: 47-42

Atlanta Braves: 42-47

Miami Marlins: 38-51

Philadelphia Phillies: 29-62

Being seven games out of first place in the NL East at this point is something a lot of us wouldn’t have expected going into 2015.  Though we weren’t expecting a good season from the Braves (because of all the pre-season transactions), they started the season hot and have consistently stayed around .500 for the year.

Still in contention, we look at five items that Braves fans should look forward to after the All-Star break.
