What a difference a few years make. The Dodgers started the 2013 NLDS on the road in Atlanta to play the Braves, armed with enough young talent to seemingly contend for years. But while the Dodgers won two division titles and 186 games in the two seasons since, the Braves won just 146 games in two lost years in 2014-2015.

Now, with the rebuild accelerated the Braves are at or near the bottom of the league in 2016 expectations. Here is a quick snapshot of both teams heading into their three-game series beginning Tuesday night at Turner Field.
