Episode 47 - May 12, 2017

This was not the best week to talk about the current state of the Atlanta Braves, but we gave it our best shot. We have gone from mildly worried about the rotation to downright pessimistic in the space of seven days. We still lament the state of the team's bench, even after they traded for Danny Santana (or maybe because of it.) We also wonder about Dansby Swanson's true ability as a major league hitter. All of which leads us to really think deeply, as we usually do, about the minors. There the Braves made a lot of news by promoting quite a few prospects rather aggressively, including Ronald Acuna. But the time when the Major League team is fun, good, and winning still feels far away.
