The Bravos are the bane of stat geeks. Offensively, they’re mediocre at best. Same with the defense (87 errors; only the Nats have more). The starting pitching, while a strength, is not the league’s best.
Can a team get to October on the backs of a stalwart bullpen and heroic bench? Looks that way.
They’ll have to step up again today. Jay Hey isn’t in the line-up, though we’re told his injured knee won’t keep him out long.
