In which the Braves will win

Kevin C. Cox

Happy Julio Teheran Day Braves fans! So guess what folks? Atlanta is winning today. Know why? Cause the last time the Braves won a game was the day after the Nationals clinched a playoff spot at Turner Field. Know what happened yesterday? That's right, the Pirates clinched a playoff sport at Turner Field! Now Pittsburgh is actually still putting their first choice lineup out there unlike Washington. Still they should be relaxed just a bit and Julio Teheran is pitching. This is gonna be a win!

Wait..

*checks wRC+ of the Braves lineup in September*

Bonifacio - 30

Simmons - 36

Freeman - 127

Justin - 22

Heyward - 80

Johnson - 23

Bathancourt - 40

BJ - 72

Not sure why I am still even typing since anyone who just read that had the skin melt from their bodies like they just opened the ark of the covenant. BUT GOOD LORD LOOK AT THAT LINEUP!!! A collection of pitchers and defense only utility infielders could conceivably put together a better month. The Braves are so bad and aren't winning another game this year.
