Here's what they're saying in Atlanta following last night's loss to Houston:
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's David O'Brien:
It had been nearly a quarter of a century since the Braves started a season with four consecutive losses, and Monday night it was newest Braves who were largely responsible for getting them back to that place they did not want to be.
“We’re not real pretty to watch right now as a team, but we’ll get it going."
“That was a game we kind of gave away. We’ve just got to bounce back tomorrow and be ready to play…. They found the holes when they needed to. It stinks. Tomorrow’s a new day. We’ve got to get a win.”
“They played pretty good tonight once they found that opening. They pitched OK. We didn’t take advantage of everything. But we’ll be back tomorrow, you better believe that.”
Capitol Avenue Club:
If you’re panicking now, you should have been panicking before the season started. If you thought the team was fine before the season started, you should think they’ll be fine now. If you’re legitimately angry and your life is worse because some dudes you don’t know scored fewer runs than some other dudes you don’t know, well, reevaluate some things in your life. That’s not being a sports fan, that’s being bad at life.
