Braves' Underrated McCann On Hall of Fame Path

Near the end of a nice piece by Tyler Kepner about the perpetually underrated Brian McCann:

McCann is finding ways to make it easier. His vision improved after he cut his caffeine consumption last season when he learned it was dilating his pupils. He ate healthier this winter and dropped 15 pounds, and says he believes his best years are ahead.

We would probably expect some great years ahead anyway, because McCann turned 27 just yesterday. Maybe not a lot of great years, though. Catching's a tough gig, even if you're eating healthy. For the moment, though, the Braves are exceptionally blessed with two superstars in McCann and Jason Heyward. Throw in a healthy Chipper Jones and potential rookie sensation Freddie Freeman, and the Braves look like a pretty good bet for the playoffs in manager Fredi Gonzalez's first season.
