So far, it’s been a mess of a season for the Braves

.


Were not too far removed from the last time the Braves had a bad season. 2017 wasnt too long ago in the least bit. Its not like you have to squint really hard in your minds eye to bring back visions of a baseball team that was a clear and obvious rebuilding project. That entire teardown-and-rebuild period following the disappointing 2014 season was rough, yall. The definition of putting on a brave face to watch a baseball team is having to watch and root for a revolving door of mediocre-to-bad players that were all unlikely to be around when the team returned to contention in the future https://www.atlantagearshop.com/Freddie_Freeman_Flag-305. The Dian Toscano saga had an anticlimactic ending if only because it was a bit of an upset that the Cuban player actually existed and wasnt a figment of John Coppolellas imagination. Hector Olivera was a flash of hope to hold on to for about five minutes before he almost immediately turned it into a complete mess with his sordid actions off of the field. Bartolo Colons quick stint as a hopeful innings-eater wasnt even entertaining or charming and it also brought about of the most embarrassing innings that Ive ever watched a Major League Baseball team play since I started watching baseball back when I was a kid.Those are but a few moments from that dark period that the Braves had https://www.atlantagearshop.com/Freddie_Freeman_T_shirt-22, but at least we as fans understood the situation — if we werent going to have high expectations, then we were going to have hope for the future. Even with crazy stuff like John Coppolella getting banned for life, there was at least a feeling that the team was in a good place and that things were going to be fine if they hired some to keep the sip going in the right direction. That happened with Alex Anthopoulos taking the reigns for the Braves, and the three seasons from 2018 through the shortened 2020 season were pretty fun to watch as Atlanta established itself as a contender. It felt like the rebuild was paying off and even with the heartbreaking exit from the 2020 NLCS, it seemed like the Braves were on the cusp of doing something special pretty soon Marcell Ozuna T-Shirt.Thats what makes this season so bitterly disappointing at the moment. Were reaching the Memorial Day checkpoint and this season has just been a complete and utter slog. There were not a plethora of reasons to expect things to be as bad as they have been so far, but here we are! There have been some pretty rough days in just the first two months of this season Austin Riley T-Shirt, but May 29 of the 2021 season will be remembered as the day the season took a sordid turn. Im going to get the on-field performance out of the way to start this because I h stly would rather talk about the Braves getting blown out by 11 runs by the division leaders than the other incident that went down on Saturday. This is a Mets lineup that has been devastated by injuries and came into this game having scored 12 runs in their last six games. Additionally, the Mets have baseballs second-worst team Isolated Power mark , only the 23rd-best wRC+ number in baseball , and the second-fewest home runs in all of baseball with 34. New York plated 13 runs in last nights game, al . They also hit five dingers along the way. That is an incredibly poor performance from the guys who took the mound, and while everybody has bad nights, its been happening at an alarming rate when it comes to this crew. Theyve had their high marks this season, but the valleys have been pretty deep and last night was a very deep valley for the Braves and their pitching staff.
