We're better against the quality pitchers.

Wow, another terribly played game by the Braves...

So far the only run we have got was from our pitcher. Our bats are ice cold, defense has been awful (Justin Upton screwed him a couple times that allowed runs to score) and our pitching has been terrible. It's really hard to watch the Braves play so bad, I had to take some pain killers to deal with the anguish. I'm hoping for a better game tomorrow cuz I'm 99.9% positive they will lose this game.

They better hurry up and figure out the bats. Chris Johnson has also come back to earth. How do you guys think Upton will do against the D-Backs? a little extra motivation to beat his old team.

Prado will most likely wreak havoc on us and they complete a sweep. Similar to how Infante put the rape down

The bats will be fine it's the pitching that is of concern. Hudson has had a couple of bad outing now, Medlen hasn't been close to what he was last year, Teheran is up and down, Maholm the last 2-3 starts has been horrible and Kimbrell is on the verge of imploding as he has nearly as many blown saves already as he had the whole season last year.

We need Beachy to hurry up and get back and be what he was last year and fast.

Braves under .500 when facing winning teams. It seems Upton is on a pretty nasty slump.

*cough* Go Giants

So are the Nationals

I'm just glad the entire NL East has sucked so far keeping us in first

This is pretty bad, the Nats are actually losing games but we're getting pounded as well. It's not gonna be long before we lose our first place lead and it's on to switching places back and forth with the Nats.

Our pitching is definitely straying right now .

Yeah, Braves are showing their flaws in this series against a good team

Thanks a lot Giants fan. How about you let the outfielders do their job and make their own mistakes instead of reaching your glove out where you don't belong.

And yes, I said let them make their own mistakes. Which covers any future rebuttals of "he was nowhere in position to catch that ball anyway".

Braves blowing right now. Have Justin Upton on my fantasy team and his production has dropped to the point where I may have to drop him.

That wouldn't be wise. Yes, he is in a little HR slump, but he's still hitting the ball.

I'm so frustrated with the team right now, what's the problem? I know the pitching isn't quite great yet but the bats aren't hitting to help them out much either.

And there he is hitting a HR. Hopefully this will set him in the right direction again .

Both players the D-Backs traded to the Braves have hit two-run homers

I'm totally cool with being frustrated with my Braves for just 3 days at a time.

Minor is quickly becoming my favorite pitcher.

He became my favorite pitcher before the season began.

So will CJ and J-Up both hit for the cycle tonight?

Well, a great game tonight, but unfortunately the Nats are winning too. Really want to pull away from them some. Let's go Dodgers late game rally!

Poor Prado, out there all alone in the desert with those big ass desert bugs crawling all over his head. I'm going to write him a letter.
