NL East Organization Reports
ATLANTA—The Braves entered 2006 pleased with their progress in retooling the everyday lineup, yet realized an opening might remain on pitching coach Roger McDowell's staff. That scenario is fine with Chuck James, who is not lacking any confidence when it comes to believing he can fill a void. I'm ready to get there," said James, who is coming off a 2005 campaign in which he tied for the organization lead with 13 wins. "I think I got a pretty good chance to make the team. I want to get there and keep things rolling. The two weeks I was up there last season, it was unreal."
