The Chicago White Sox, second worst record in the American League, and yet, the Braves
are about ready to lose 2/3 to them.  Since the run the Braves had at the beginning of the season, they are now playing .500 since then.  I guess Wren is happy with this. I am not. Why should I waste a dime of my money on this team.

This is not a playoff team. The only reason they are in first place in their division is because the rest of the teams in the east are worse. If they win the division, it is only because they walked through the backdoor. They will knocked out in the first series if they get that far.  

I have not watched them the past few series because of the frustration. Tuned in today and was greeted with another pitiful performance.

463 views from folks stopping by today's GT, but nobody posted. Plenty of new topics were posted recently with hundreds and hundreds of views. Lot of reading going on. I spend my time on twitter.

This team is hard to watch.  There are some signs of concern when things move to October.  Losing some of the bats and bullpen might come back to haunt then.  However, the Nationals are in no hurry to capitalize because they have their own struggles.  But hard to watch a starting lineup that very well will have two sub 200 batters in Uggla and BJ Upton.  Walker just isn't getting through or he simply can't get through to these guys like other coaches haven't either.

The batting avg is bad enough as yesterday showed timely hitting
has been a problem with this team.I think the Braves have been shutout about 11 times and how many times like yesterday 1 run.
Also I would be curious where this team ranks with runners lob.This team can be a challenge for many reasons to watch but I have seen much worse from this organization.
