Don't Panic...Yet.

Post by Mike

Okay it is not quite time to panic, but we're getting close.The Braves currently have the worst record in Spring Training, including the Grapefruit and Cactus Leagues. 1-10 with a tie to the Marlins, YUK!

There are a few positive signs like Prado hitting .407 and Uggla .286. Other than that there is not much good coming out of Orlando. Spring Hitting Stats - BEWARE IT IS UGLY!

Heyward is still strugling at .143. Freeman is at .137 and Chipper is .000 in only 8 at bats. And our starting short stop Pastornicky is batting a cool .100 (3-for-30). Didn't we fire our last hitting coach because these guys couldn't hit a beach ball?

Of course the Braves have always had good pitching, but do yourself a favor and don't look at these stats either: Spring Pitching - NOT MUCH TO LIKE HERE EITHER!

They play tonight at 6 PM. I never put much emphasis on Spring Training, but the last team to have a Spring this bad was the 2010 Pirates. They finished last in the majors that year. We still have 22 warm up games remaining. If they can win 8 more, I won't panic.
