The Braves lost to Mets on Sunday by a score of 3-2. Coming into the 2016 season, the Braves expected to be very bad, and their most recent defeat puts them on pace for 126 losses in 2016. They will not lose that many games, very probably, but they will indeed be lousy.
On the general subject of Braves lousiness in the current season, there's this: The Braves have three home runs. Three. Three home runs in 18 games. Three, people. They have not homered since April 10, when Drew Stubbs went deep off Adam Wainwright. That means they've gone, as a team, 517 at-bats without hitting a home run.
The Braves are, as you would expect, last in the majors in home runs. In 29th place are the Marlins. They have three times as many home runs as the Braves do. At this writing, 45 individual players have more home runs than the Braves do, and 78 individual players have as many or more home runs than the Braves do.
Their work to date -- such as it is -- puts the Braves on target for 27 home runs this season. That's a remarkable non-feat, especially in an era of increasing home run rates. The last team to hit 27 or fewer homers in a season? That woud be the 1945 Washington Senators, who did so across a 154-game slate.
People, the 2016 Braves are terrible. People, the 2016 Braves are acutely terrible at hitting home runs.
