In the first half of their inaugural season, the Braves finished just two games out of first place, but they struggled in the second half and finished with a sub-.500 overall record. Outfielder Jeff Francoeur led the offense, hitting .273 with 13 home runs, 28 doubles, and 62 RBIs in 84 games before being called up to Atlanta in early July. Nine more Braves were called up to the big leagues in the course of the season, most notably catcher Brian McCann.

In 2006, the Braves finished with the worst overall record in the circuit under new skipper and former Atlanta star Jeff Blauser.
