Atlanta Braves Baseball Season

Postby DaveB » Tue Apr 10, 2018 1:40 pm

Atlanta seems to be the AAA-team of last year and then the Playoff team of the distant past.

At least i think they will break 500 this year.

I am wondering how their payroll was 119 million last year after a 2016 of 74 million. They paying Kimbrel and others still?

My Son says Yankees win the Series in 3 games. after 3, the other team will default.

Braves have some good young players, The have a stud all-star first baseman.

The thing that hurts them bad is the pitching they just don't have it. why the organization has not signed a stud pitcher in forever now I dont know. They can get all the 20-year-old good fielders they want until they get some real good pitching they not going far.

look at Washington who the Braves, are playing a series with right now.... they just rolled out Max Scherzer & Stephen Strasburg in back to back starts against the Braves two of the best in the game, & shut the Braves down.

mets are the same way with Jacob deGrom, & Matt Harvey

The Atlanta record looks good until you examine the details.

They are generally swinging the bat pretty good but as mentioned the pitching side has some big holes.

Still, I am encouraged by performance so far.

Fingers crossed one or more of the current pitching staff steps their game up several notches.

Braves are playing good baseball.

I was really surprised to watch the Mets series. That team seems to have a lot of missing parts. They have some great pitching, some good hitting, good fielding but not all 3 all the time or even most of the time. If they were a V8 i would say they were running on 6.

Still, is good to watch Atlanta play the game

Albie is really playing well, and then add in Acuna to that. Freddie being Freddie. Most Braves games I have watched in the 5-6 years. Fun, young team to watch.

Braves in first after 30 games now.

Beat up the NY mets again to finish the 3 game sweep

11-0........ Mets didn't have a hit it the 7th

Braves lead the NL/majors in so many good categories pretty impressive.

The Braves are getting hits exactly when they need them and when they don't, the other team can't field the ball.

It is amazing to watch the games.

That Pitcher kid Soroka near cleared the fence on his first or second major league at bat. I've got ties older than him.

Sell Bautista. His 3rd base skills are not up to the task. Move him quick.

Atlanta should have spanked SF instead they got hammered. SF was missing a lot of talent but Atlanta pitching was not up to the task.

Next two weeks I think Atlanta is going to have a lot of trouble.

The sweep hurts

Braves still a game up over the Philly who plays the mets tonight.

Looked like the braves teams over the last 4 years in that series. Pitching killed them they look good at times just not consistent

5 games over 500 is still pretty good for this team at the moment.

Braves still moving right along.

Looking for 3ed straight win tonight leading the Marlins 7-1. A grandslam by one the youngsters broke the 1-1 game open in the 6th.....

Braves will stay in first with a W.
