Power Rankings
See if you can name who is second on the team in home runs after Freddie Freeman. My hunch is the overwhelming majority of non-Braves fans would have no idea and even a good chunk of Braves fans would miss it as well. It's Tyler Flowers with seven.
They closed the first half with three wins in four games in Chicago (one win over Cubs, two over White Sox). That's a positive!
Julio Teheran being an All-Star with a 3-7 record really brought a smile to my face. He can't help how his teammates play and he's pitched like an All-Star this season. Let the rubes who think a pitcher's individual W-L record is all that matters whine about this one while the rest of us laugh.
They're on pace to go 55-107, which would mark the worst record for the franchise since it left Boston.
That's six wins in a row since I talked about their lack of winning streaks last week! The Official Power Rankings karma strikes again!
They have had one four-game winning streak and three two-game winning streaks. Otherwise their wins are all rogue.
They're on pace to go 45-117.
Can I set an arbitrary endpoint here? Sure, why not. Rookie Mallex Smith is hitting .291 with four doubles, three triples and three homers since April 27.
Dansby Swanson is tearing up Double-A, so there's that.
I understand firing Fredi Gonzalez, I just thought it should have been done (at least) three times previously. Now, what's the point in just not waiting until the end of the season? Whatever. It's largely irrelevant.
