Lose two of three to the Red Sox, Yankees, then the Red Sox again, and what do you get? A team whose fans don't have much confidence in it. This is the state of the Atlanta Braves this week. For the third straight week, the Atlanta Braves Fan Confidence rating fell, and now stands at a season-low 48% confidence. The optimism for this team that existed at the beginning of the year has definitely evaporated.
The Braves have an opportunity to turn that mark around though. Leading up to the All-Star break, the team plays a struggling Phillies team to finish out the homestand, then goes on the road to face the Nationals (worst team in baseball), the Cubs, and the Rockies -- all places our offense should be able to hit a little more. We'll see.
