Chipper Jones claims that the Braves have the toughest schedule in baseball. The Braves play the Red Sox, Tigers, Twins, and Indians in interleague play. I think he's right, if only by virtue of the fact that the Braves are the only team in baseball who not only play in the same division as the Mets, but draw the Red Sox as an interleague opponent. The Red Sox and the Mets are the top two teams in baseball, a fact that I think can draw little debate. (Certainly not from the pro-Red Sox crowd, and I doubt the Joe Sports Fan crowd would be able to champion the Brewers as one of the top two teams, because they likely haven't jumped on the bandwagon yet. Give 'em a couple more weeks.)
