In which it can't get any worse.

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Ervin Santana Day Braves fans! So yesterday the Braves lost to the Padres 10-1 and allowed 20 hits and 10 runs to the worse offensive team in baseball. Basically this happened to the Braves.

This is good news though! It cannot get worse than it did yesterday. Today's game will be an improvement because it is basically impossible for things to get worse. Plus Santana is pitching and he leads the Braves in FIP and is tied with Julio Teheran in ERA. Meaning it is reasonable to argue that Santana has been the Braves best pitcher this season. He isn't getting shelled by the Padres.
