The Braves will set the franchise record for wins in the regular season in 2024

For the past two seasons, the Braves have done something that has only been done eight times in franchise history in the modern era and that is eclipse 100 wins in a season. They successfully chased the Mets down in 2022 in route to 101 wins and last season they tied for the second most regular season wins in franchise history with 104.

Predicting that the Braves will get north of 100 wins again may not seem all that bold, but keep in mind that from 2018 through last season, a grand total of 17 teams have pulled it off across the entire league. Winning the division is hard, but winning 100+ games is significantly tougher.

However, we are going to go one step further than saying that the Braves will 100 or more games in 2024. The Braves offense is going to arguably be better on paper than last year with multiple MVP candidates on the roster, the rotation is in a good spot assuming the injury bug doesn't bite, and the bullpen is loaded. If there is any year where the Braves' franchise record for wins in a season could fall, it is next season.

Atlanta won 104 games last year despite losing Kyle Wright, Max Fried, Sean Murphy, Travis d'Arnaud, and others for significant lengths of time. The Braves record for wins in a season is 106 set back in 1998. We're betting the record falls next year especially if the pitching staff can stay healthier than it was last year.
