MLB 11 The Show, Buster Olney Disagree On Atlanta Braves, As Is Custom

Team ratings for MLB 11 The Show are out, with the Atlanta Braves showing up No. 10, fifth in the National League and second in the NL East behind the Philadelphia Phillies. Obviously the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox are first and second, since those teams always win the World Series usually. The San Francisco Giants are also up there, since the reigning champion always gets overrated in video games -- see: the Alabama Crimson Tide's 99 rating, NCAA 11.

ESPN's Buster Olney, however, thinks the Braves might be better than the Phillies, citing Phily's left-handedness and durability.

I don't have any figures in front of me on whether Olney or MLB 11 disagree often, or who comes out on top when they do disagree. While individual player ratings and so forth aren't yet out for this game (though they are for MLB 2K11), the Braves are at least close to the upper-tier.
