2001 Atlanta Braves Season

The 2001 Atlanta Braves season saw the team finish first in the NL East Division with an 88-74 record - the worst among playoff teams in 2001, and also the worst for the Braves since 1990 (not counting the strike-shortened 1994 season), when they had the worst record in baseball.

The Braves swept the favored Houston Astros in the NLDS before losing to eventual world champions Arizona in the NLCS.
