    Atlanta Braves

    4 wins and 16 losses so far this season for a team with a proud history surely they have to be a more competitive team at the moment, the owners and the fans seem to be okay with the job Gonzalez is doing as coach which i dont understand.

    This was not unexpected, Braves should be neck and neck with the Phillies at year's end for worst record in the majors.

    I like that they've hit only 3 HRs, Trevor Brown of the Giants has that many in 28 at bats.

    Looks like they're going to be worse than that Houston team of a couple of years ago.

    After all of the off-season moves, everyone, even the Braves, knew they would be garbage this year. They are playing a ton of young players with zero experience in the majors. There's a good chance they have the leagues worst record at the end of the season but I think they will show signs of life later in the season. Wouldn't be surprised if they win 80+ games next year.

    I'm surprised they retained him but I guess this is his punishment for the epic collapse of 2011. He's a lifetime .500 manager with a juicy 1-4 postseason record. I appreciate the Braves giving managers time but this era needs to end. Braves are my favorite team and it sucks being terrible, just like it sucked being a 2-14 Panther fan but they will get it going again.

    Hart completely wrecking the house felt a tad unnecessary. I would've thought hanging on to a few vets could've help develop all the young talent there but that wasn't what he wanted I guess. I feel bad for Hug-Life having to play in the middle of a rebuild but hopefully he will be rewarded with a playoff push in his twilight years.

    I'll say the Chop returns in 2020 for a WS push.


    Oh and the Hector Olivera deal

    Everyone in ATL knew the Braves were gonna be absolute garbage this season, we are in the process of building a new stadium and rebuilding the team talent wise, thats why we cleaned the slate. yeah it sucks...but its whatever I'm used to this shit in ATL

    They tank the team on purpose so that Gonzo will resign. Then Chipper takes over the team in Cobb County.

    The most pathetic aspect is how they have 1 win at home this year and the season is a month old. That's like disrespectful bad. How do they sell more than 5,000 tickets to home games? If I was a local they wouldn't get a dime of my money winning 1 home game in a month, hell I wouldn't even go if the tix were comped.
