Cliff Lee To Phillies, Falcons Playoffs Scenarios, And NBA Power Rankings: Around The Perimeter

Braves: Now that Cliff Lee has signed with the Philadelphia Phillies, the Atlanta Braves' NL East rivals are 7/2 favorites to win the World SeriesWill the Phillies 2010 rotation be as good as the '90s BravesWell, will it?

Falcons: We've detailed the Atlanta Falcons relatively simple path to the playoffs, but how about their path out of it? Jay Adams provides the extremely unclear roadmap to a Falcons-free postseason, which involves light reflecting off swamp gases right when the cannibal out by Hanging Rock makes his first appearance of the evening.

Hawks: .com begrudgingly nudges the Atlanta Hawks up to No. 5 in this week's NBA power rankings, expressing concern for the team's ability to survive until Joe Johnson returns. So far so good except, for the most part, except for last night and some other nights.
