The only silver lining is we've played a pretty brutal schedule so far. And only one team has played a tougher schedule with an equal or better record (Cardinals):


But the thread started by the Pig fans says we had an easy schedule

Beat him by a mile. Maybe not quite a mile. But beat him.

I'm not going to the trouble of digging up anymore stats than have already been posted (the Power Ratings SOS). I know what the Braves record is, who they have played, and what their weaknesses are.

They're in first place, have whipped the WS favorites, and aren't 100% healthy.

That's a lot different than discussing Les Miles' offensive track record

We all know what needs to be fixed

Giants > Bad News Bears > Braves.

But the schedule has been brutal and we've played like four home games so far, so it'll be nice staying home and welcoming teams to the heat and humidity all summer.

yeah whoever said that is an easy schedule is off base. not like you've only played the Astros, Cubs, Marlins, Mets and Padres so far. that being said, it's not a "brutal" schedule.

come on Blanco get a nice 2-bagger here

Not a brutal schedule? Come on, rohan. 7 games with the Nats, 4 with the giants, 3 with the reds, 3 with the tigers. who else should we have played for people to admit that's a pretty tough schedule?

plus out of the 17 games I listed. 13 were on the road

i thought the Nats sucked according to braves fans? so by default that makes them an easy team to face.

The reds have more home wins than we have home games thus far.

It definitely feels like we've only played about 6 home games it will be nice to have a good homestand

Yeah it has been brutal late but we have been less than good against that schedule

Anybody else think the constant lineup changing hurts. I'm not saying either way it's good or bad just wondering what everyone else thinks, I think you go to bat and hit whatever position you are put in the lineup.

Of course the constant lineup change hurts, but Frediot gonna Frediot. Heaven forbid we give guys more than three at-bats to settle into a spot in the order.
If we give up eight runs a game though, it doesn't really matter
