Atlanta's historic September collapse loomed over the winter like a bad hangover, and the questions didn't let up just because the team is heading into a new season. Until the Braves start carving out a different path — one that, for their sake, better end with a trip to the playoffs — they're going to be queried about what happened a year ago.
