Recently, we posted a head-to-head comparison of the Braves’ and Nats’ probable lineups, featuring statistical projections from Bill James. Missing from that post, we later felt, was comparison of the 2012 performances of each member of the respective lineups. With that in mind, here is that comparison. 2012 performance of current Braves lineup:   AB AVG OBP HR RBI 2B/3B SB OPS Simmons 166 .289 .335 3 19 10 1 .751 Heyward 587 .269 .335 27 82 36 21 .814 J.Upton 554 .280 .355 17 63 28 18 .785 Freeman 540 .259 .340 23 94 35 2 .796 B.Upton 573 .246 .298 28 78 32 31 .752 McCann 439 .230 .300 20 67 14 3 .698 Uggla 523 .220 .348 19 78 29 4 .732 **Fransisco/Johnson 680 .268 .312 24 108 44 6 .759 2012 performance of current Nationals lineup:   AB AVG OBP HR RBI 2B/3B SB OPS Span 516 .283 .342 4 41 42 17 .737 Harper 533 .270 .340 22 59 35 18 .817 Zimmerman 578 .282 .346 25 95 37 5 .824 LaRoche 571 .271 .343 33 100 36 1 .853 Werth 300 .300 .387 5 31 24 8 .827 Desmond 513 .
