    Coach Cox, what has been the key to the hot start?


    People are calling Jason Heyward the best OF prospect since Griffey Jr., how has he played thus far?


    You have made some moves with your roster, how have the new additions impacted your team?

    Q: Coach Cox, what has been the key to the hot start?

    A: The hot start can be attributed to everyone on the team holding their own weight. The pitching has been superb thus far, and the batting his been very consistent. There isn't a hole in either the lineup or our rotation. We also called up few young guys from AAA to fortify our pen, and they have definitely done so thus far.

    Q: People are calling Jason Heyward the best OF prospect since Griffey Jr., how has he played thus far?

    A: Jason has been great. He is hitting not only for power, but for average, and is leading our team in RBIs, and 2nd in HRs. Jason greatest asset is definitely his ability to hit the ball hard, especially in the clutch. I have very high hopes for him this season, and for his future.

    As for Ken Griffey Jr, only time will tell.


    Q: You have made some moves with your roster, how have the new additions impacted your team?


    A: Well unfortunately the moves you are most likely referring to was a trade with the Yankees, but unfortunately the trade never went down due to a disagreement with the physicals. It was a tough pill to swallow since the trade obviously gave the Braves more firepower, but the players involved in the trade that have remained with the Braves have played great and deserve all the praise for our 8-0 start.

    Our newest addition, Willy Tavaras is expected to contribute to this team in a big way. He brings alot of speed to the bases as well being a very good defensive player.
