This is not the same team as last year.

They are not hitting or pitching.

tomorrow they are not even a favorite against a new pitcher.

This team may get swept by the Padres. I will be at Saturday nights game.

feel free to give me your thoughts on the Braves.

Only 1 week and less time gel not having normal off season/spring training. Freddy loss definitely hurts club house

They got really hot during that run to title last year

Hard to tell yet if they can or are capable of continuing

Yea. They just had a great last month. I don’t think Spring Training shortened has anything to do with it

I think they were simply overachievers.

we shall see.

If you randomly polled 100 people and asked them what team won the World Series last year without cheating and looking it up? I’d bet 3. Seriously…

Well lets see....

The key trades in 2021 that brought Atlanta from a 0.500 club in mid-season 2021 to win the World Series were...

Joc Pederson: 2021 w/ ATL OPS 0.753 (Gone to Giants)
Jorge Soler: 2021 w/ ATL OPS 0.882 (Gone to Marlins)
Eddie Rosario: 2021 w/ ATL OPS 0.983 Currently 0.197
Adam Duvall: 2021 w/ ATL OPS 0.800 Currently 0.630

As a team ATL OPS is down from 0.763 in 2nd half of 2021 to 0.703 in 2022
So the offense is down quite a bit.


But the pitching has done poorly as well.
Pitching: 2nd half 2021 3.44. Currently at 5.58


They are 3-4 in their first two series and both were at home. But, the quality of teams they were up against (Cincy, Wash) were not very high. They should have come out with a much better record than that. Maybe a 5-2 or at least a 4-3 in the first seven.
