Open thread, 4/9, #Braves vs. the cellar

Are the Braves as bad as they’ve looked after five games? I’m starting to think my 74-88 projection was a tad generous.

And why is Adonis Garcia batting clean-up?

Inciarte 8, Swanson 6, Freeman 3, Garcia 5, Markakis 9, Phillips 4, Flowers 2, Peterson 7, Teheran 1

  1. They’re worse.

    Their best offensive player so far gets hurt. Their best pitcher isn’t allowed to pitch more than six innings. The poor bench and lack of rotation depth are going to bury this team in the first two months unless they start playing better asap.

    I hope I’m wrong.

  2. Sunday’s game was the worst yet. Our bullpen managed to blow a save in both the 9th and the 10th innings. Pitiful performance.
