Braves numbers at the midway point of 2014

Let's see what the Atlanta players are on pace for at the halfway mark of the 2014 campaign.

The Braves are halfway through with the 2014 season. They finished the first half with a 43-38 record. Atlanta is tied with the Nationals for first place in the NL East.

So they are on pace for an 86-76 record. Will that be good enough to win the division, or will the Braves simply be in the wildcard race?

Let's do some simple math. Let's just multiply the players' stats by two to see what they are on pace for at the midway point of the 2014 season.
