Kelly Johnson? Utley-like IMO.

Is Minor likely to struggle as bad as he did in the first half last year? Should we expect Uggla and Mac to have the worst year of their career again? Is it not reasonable to believe Heyward and Freeman improve? Are we starting Pastor at ss for half the season again? Its so much more than Johnson and the Uptons against Chipper, Prado, and Bourn. Also I expect Justin to blossom and make this years group even better than last years...

No, for the simple reason that both Heyward and Justin Upton are primed to take big steps forward this year. Even taking out of consideration the rest of the lineup, they could both have monster years and carry the offense.
And, as others have mentioned, a full year of Simmons and the likelihood that Minor has now figured it out help a ton and aren't really considered here.

Johnson, WaldenThe addition of the Uptons is great, but on the other side the loss of those 3 everyday players is a feat to overcome. For the Braves to be better than last year, everything has to go right in the rotation, and need some improvment from McCann and Uggla
