The Daily Chop: Atlanta offense continues to falter in frustrating doubleheader split

New, 120 comments

The Braves just cannot find consistent offense.

The Braves played three games in two days between Sunday and Monday. Their pitching was outstanding in these three contests, allowing just three total runs, but the offense was anemic. They managed to score just three runs and went 1-2, which is especially deflating given the importance of every division game at the moment.

Having replacement-level production at so many positions is severely holding back an Atlanta club that, despite their many injuries, is still talented enough to reach the postseason. Will deadline additions be a possible solution? It remains to be seen, but the past two days have showcased just how sorely the Braves are missing potency in the lineup and how much even marginal upgrades might help.
