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.

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.
