    Touki has at least provided some good outings when ATL has needed them. So did Newk. 5-6 good innings out of those guys will do for now.

    Touki and Wright will be top level starters. Their stuff is just nasty.

    Erlin has really good K/BB numbers but gives up aton of hits.

I donít think we can say it is early season struggles as it looks exactly the same as what we saw from him last year.

    At least if Camargo struggles he is really good defensively. Riley at this point is HR or no value. I find it hard to get behind benching Camargo (or anyone else) for a guy who does as little as Riley.

    It's a shame, but everything you said Is true, the problema is that Camargo isn't doing much better at the plate, if I'm Snit I keep doing the same until one of them takes over 3B, if neither does, the Braves should go after one in the off season. On a side note I really like How Riley has played 3B, so even if none of them Is producing offensively they both have been great defensively.

    I like this pickup, can pitch multiple innings and throw strikes, we have one of the top defense in the game, so Erlin should do Well in Atlanta. Also, I always trade for him in MLB the Show Franchise mode, so he already felt like a Braves player to me lol.

    Aside from 3 games, this offense hasn't been impressive at all. Only constant has been the absurd strikeout totals. Top 3 went 0-15 yesterday, freeman has had exactly one good game, and Ozuna and swanson have crashed back to earth hard. Riley is an automatic out and shouldn't be expected to do much.

    It may be time to sound the alarms with this offense. The strikeouts are absurd and AcuŮa still can't hit a cookie cutter fastball down the middle. Instead the strikeouts continue.

    Don't have much time to fix this crap. Would be a different story if this was week 2 of a 162 game slate.

    Relax man. Top of the order was 6/14 in Game 1.

    Look around the league at the top bats and see how many are totally struggling. Guys like Acuna and Freeman are proven bats - they didnít lose it. They are just behind pitchers right now. Fresh, Freeman was taken like 6 ABs a game to try and catch up after being shut down for COVID right before the season.
