Great to see Harang pitch well today. Would be nice if he could at least be a solid innings eater for us while we really need it until we get our other arms back.

Honest opinion and feel free to disagree. This Braves team isn't going very far. They have a shot at the playoffs just because they play in the NL East. Any other division and they would be a .500 team at best. Three games in and you have to worry a little about the offense. We know there isn't a lot of SP depth.

If the Braves are going to play close, low scoring games I don't think that's enough with the starting pitching right now. Is it good enough in the NL East? Maybe. But not in the postseason. Team seems too thin right now on offense and SP.

I tend to agree with you. However, It's too early in the year to be making these kinds of assumptions. If the same is holding true after 25 games or so, then I would agree with you 100%. I'm not expecting much from Dan and BJ, but I think Justin will snap out of his funk soon. If we can go .500 or better while waiting on Minor and Santana, we will be in a decent enough position to vie for one of the WC spots.

I'd argue that Uggla is already showing signs of improvement. 3-4 of his outs have been on murdered balls, just to the wrong spot. I worry when he is popping them up on the infield - haven't seen much of that yet.

And I wouldn't yet call Justin being in a funk, too early.

Maybe Dan is showing signs of improvement. I feel like we've heard that for 3 years now though. I'll believe it when I see it, and I hope we do see it.

As for JUp, maybe it's not being in a funk, but starting the season 1/11 with 4 strikeouts isn't exactly tearing it up either.

Agreed, but if that happened during a 3-game span in the middle of July, it might not even be noticeable. He did have a super hot April last year, so hopefully he turns it on against the Nats.

Braves beat the Nationals 2-1. Avilan gets the W and Kimbrel picks up his 3rd save. Gattis hit a solo HR and CJ had a sac fly for our scoring plays. Simmons threw out a runner at home and the Nats had an inside the park home run overturned on replay (ball stuck in padding, ruled a double). The black holes of the lineup went 1/12 with 8 strikeouts. Dan got that one hit.

Nice recap of the game. Our "black hole of the lineup" as you so call it is not going to cut it. Those are absolutely atrocious numbers for PROFESSIONAL ball players.

BJ was 0-4, with 3 strikeouts... what a freaking joke he is. He should pay Atlanta to have a roster spot. His BA is now a whopping .063. Oh and his brother did the exact same today. He has a huge lead in BA over BJ though, posting an impressive .067 this year.

One other miserable stat... we have score EIGHT runs thus far in four games this year. The positive news is we have only allowed five runs and are 3-1.
