The Braves are just so frustrating to follow...

...win a couple, lose a couple, win 1, lose 2. Geesh. Keep waiting for this club to go on a run, but doesn't seem to be in the cards this year. Can't even get to .500 and begin to think about catching the freaking Mets who have injuries all over their lineup. Starting pitching and bullpen are in shambles. Very surprising given this team was one game from the World Series last year.

Should have signed Duvall over Ozuna...

No one knew he would get hurt.. And then proceed to choke his wife out..

Pitching hasn't been consistent enough....

Braves are slipping more and more into oblivion.

Maybe should have thrown some money at Melancon instead of banking on Will Smith. Also, should have traded Newcomb and Matzek during the offseason for a $20 Wal-Mart gift card and a bucket of used batting practice balls.

Will Smith have been somewhat serviceable(only blown one save)..
Newcomb does need to go...

Kranitz, the pitching coach, needs to go as well...

The bullpen is ether boom or bust, and on the same night there actually good, the lineup couldn’t hit there selfs out of a wet paper bag. There starters have been better but injuries galore have killed us, but we just started a dude (Chavez) that was drafted in 2002, same year as Jeff Francouer and Zach Greinke. (Sucks we missed on them) would’ve been fun to watch them. Braves need to add some more arms, rotation or pen, and a OF. Maybe Hainger from Seattle or Puig from FA. BTW they always advertise it But had anyone tried Frenchies Blues yet?

Ozuna is gone for beating his wife. Luckily they didn't sign him.

Well when you have someone named Abraham Almonte hitting cleanup, who is hitting .215 with one homer and less than 10 rbi, you’re gonna have problems. Also having Contreras, Adrianza, and Inciarte (who I can’t believe is on a major league roster) at the bottom of the lineup almost guarantees automatic outs. This lineup right now is horrible. Not to mention Albies and Riley are hot for a short time then cold for a long time, and Freddie is having his worst year (some really bad luck also).

I agree with you man, Almonte, Adrianaza, and Heredia would be the 4th 5th and 6th outfielder on a typical MLB team. Ender at least has a glove which is declining and occasionally runs into a extra base hit. But his trade value is in the dumps. As for Almonte batting in the 4th spot, IMO it’s just bc he walks more then strikes out so it gives a chance of Acuna and Freddie getting on base first then he walks after them to give Ozzie, Riley, and Swanson a chance to drive them in, bc after them, you aint getting much out of the 7th, 8th, and 9 hole and our best hitting pitcher Fried is hurt. So that’s basically 3 straight outs almost. Surprised we haven’t reached out to Puig, or even contacted Nick M and said hey wanna come out of retirement or even called up Drew Waters yet, bc before this year I’ve never heard of most of the guys we trot out in the OF every game recently. I mean there has to better options somewhere. Maybe trade for Gallo least he homers, strikes out, or walks, then repeats lol Hampson from the Colorado steals bags, I just hope our GM doesn’t make a dumb trade like when was in Toronto like the Noah S and company to the Mets for old geezer RA and change. But what do I know? I just play MLB the show. lol
