Braves Power Rankings Roundup: Week 3
Below is a graph of where the Braves have ranked over the course of the season.
And here is what Power Rankers are saying about the Braves this week:
Braves ranked 30th - "The Braves are already consistently scoring four and five runs per game but hope to take it up a notch after Matt Kemp's return from the DL. Freddie Freeman has shown no letup from last season's ridiculously hot close to his season (in which he hit .363 with a 1.146 OPS). As his former teammate Chipper Jones said, Freeman could be a top-five MVP candidate ... if the Braves can muster something close to a winning record. -- Mark Simon, ESPN Stats & Information"
Braves ranked 29th - "All they do is win at SunTrust Park."
Braves ranked 29th - "Let’s go streaking! Even if it’s just against the Padres."
Braves ranked 24th - The Bleacher report rankings commented on four teams this week. Your team was not one of the five mentioned. The write up includes other information, like MVPs of the Week, that make the write up worth the read for fans of any team.
Braves ranked 28th - "One Nice Thing: Bartolo Colon is ageless. He threw seven innings and allowed one hit, one run and one walk with six strikeouts Sunday. He has a 0.82 WHIP this season.
One Not-So-Nice Thing: The Braves' new ballpark in the suburbs opened up, and it is every bit as suburban as you could imagine. It will henceforth be dubbed McMansion Stadium."
