Open thread, 6/19, Braves vs. Lee Guttermans
After 67 games in 2008 the Braves were 32-35. Today they’re 35-32 and it’s anyone’s guess whether they’ll end up sucking wind like the Braves of four seasons ago (who finished 72-90) or whether they’ll overcome adversity like the 2010 squad.
They could go either way, but at this point I’m pretty pessimistic. When an already-wobbly rotation loses its ace, you tend to panic. Naturally, Braves hitters have chosen the worst time possible to go cold.
We may be looking at a sub-.500 team this time next week, though a win tonight would likely prevent that from happening. At least for another week.
Like Fredi says, you never know, you know?
