    An 8-game losing streak... that came against three playoff teams: The Reds, Cards, and Nats, which goes back to my earlier point about the Braves struggling/beating themselves against elite teams in recent years. I don't see how they stand a better chance against the Reds when they couldn't handle the Cards (and other great teams) in their own park.

    He's been a solid player, but also 32 years old and it will require a long term deal. Just concerned that his production will fall off a cliff in the next couple years.

    The Braves were bad against the Nats before they started playing good baseball, so I think you just have to credit them and not blame the Braves for not beating them.

    The Braves went 3-4 vs. San Francisco and 8-10 vs. Washington, so it's not like the better teams in the NL throttled the Braves. I say that sweep against Cincinnati was an aberration. Reds caught the Braves when they weren't playing well and did what good teams do.

    The Braves also went 5-1 vs. St. Louis, but that meant nothing in the play-in game. Unless it is against a division opponent, regular season records against one team don't say much.

    With Grienke going to LA, the dominoes are going to start falling. Hamilton will be next, Bourn could follow. We'll see asking prices come down. It could be busy for us.

    Wrong attitude to have. You just can't give him anything he wants.
