Yes, the Braves have been playing mediocre baseball over the past couple of months.  But as the weather has heated up, the trends are actually getting worse.  And that makes for several problems that may be extremely difficult to overcome as we go forward into Summer.

The Braves have lost…

  • 3 in a row… to the bottom-dwelling Phillies… at home
  • 4 of their last 5 games
  • 6 of their last 8 games
  • 10 of the 16 played this month

They are now a scant 1 game above .500 in a division that is ready and ripe for the taking.  Yet, Atlanta has been coming back to the field ever since their 17-7 start in April.

We’re going to take a look at the problems…  but also some reasons to coax you back inside from the ledge.
