It’s 5 days until the Atlanta Braves season begins. Number 5 is the number of Braves’ first baseman Freddie Freeman. Freeman is coming into the 2012 season to destroy souls in the NL East.

It should also be noted that Keith Law of ESPN Insider said this about Freeman before last season:

Freeman keeps performing even though he is young for his levels and doesn’t possess any plus tools to get you excited … He’s an above-average [defensive] first baseman and is ready to step in now as Atlanta’s first baseman, so the lack of ceiling is mitigated by the fact he can provide value right away.
