Will the Braves finish above or below .500 ?..
They sit at 7 over right now, but are just 7-13 in July with a 4 game losing streak.
Much of what is playing out was predictable, and I did predict it.
Albies is not a power hitter, many of the career minor leaguers who hit early have long faded and pitching is thin.
I have to shake my head remembering posters saying the team should trade excess pitching for a bat just weeks ago. Now with just 2 days remaining to make trades, the team clearly needs a starter as well as 2 relievers and a strong bat off the bench.
Which brings me back to ownership, we likely won't do much before the deadline on Tuesday because Liberty is only concerned with profits.
I see this team finishing at or below .500 with more long term questions than I expected going into next season.
