Brave, Yet Still Horrible, New World
Well, the Braves are by far the worst team in baseball. And even with the addition of Matt Kemp...they're probably gonna be even worse.
Don't get me wrong, Matt Kemp's gonna hit a lot of home runs and get a lot of RBI, but...that's his schtick. He's not gonna shake the entire team up to immediately start doing well. Because...well, the Braves have ABSOLUTELY NO PITCHING right now. Julio Teheran, as well as everyone who was doing their jobs well, is injured. And the guys they're bringing up or signing for help...they're not doing any better. This is like the Dodgers' issue times 20, because the only Braves starter that's been healthy from the start is...Mike Foltynewicz.
This is a team in dire need of a revamp, and despite a lineup that's...improving...things probably won't get much better for a while. Even with the call up of Dansby Swanson, who's...doing alright, and the home run hitting antics of Matt Kemp, the Braves are still going to be the worst team in baseball this year. And it's a little sad, because Freddie Freeman is trying.
Not much else to say, which is also pretty sad. Don't worry, I'll have a happier post up tonight.
Coming Tonight- A rookie pitcher for the Twins...okay, I take back the 'happier post' thing.
