|Will Bobby Cox have the pieces he needs to make it 15 in a row?|
After surprising many observers by riding Andruw Jones' power and a host of rookies all the way to another NL East title, the Braves lost shortstop Rafael Furcal and closer Kyle Farnsworth in the span on a few days last week.

So will John Schuerholz be able to work his magic at this week's winter meetings, or will the Braves enter next season with two glaring holes? They still have Jones, Bobby Cox, John Smoltz, Tim Hudson and Chipper Jones, but were the recent defections signals that their dynasty is finally nearing an end?
