Atlanta Braves Fan Confidence Down to Pre-McLouth-Trade Levels

New, 24 comments

Before the Atlanta Braves pulled off the trade for Nate McLouth, the fan confidence in the team -- as measured by the weekly poll here at Talking Chop -- was at the lowest point of the season. The week after the trade, the confidence jumped up considerably, though still not as high as it was to start the season. But this week, for the second straight week, the confidence level has fallen to just about where it was before the McLouth trade, as the team has failed to capitalize on the added offense.

With the upcoming homestand being perhaps the toughest the team will have all season, the liklihood is that the confidence level will continue to drop (unless the team can miraculously pull off some wins against the mighty AL East).
