Mike Foltynewicz vs. Hector Noesi

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Miami Marlins Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports

Reminder: the Braves have:

  • The sixth-best record in baseball;
  • The second-best record in the National League;
  • The fourth-highest playoff odds in baseball;
  • The fourth-highest odds to win their division in baseball;
  • The fourth-highest World Series victory odds in baseball;
  • A 6.5-game division lead;
  • An “on pace” record that’s seven games better than their optimistic projected record before the season started; and
  • A projected record that’s five games better than their optimistic projected record before the season started.

By reading these words, you have been so reminded. Do with it what you will.
