Atlanta Braves Fan Confidence Drops, Should be Lower

As if it were the mission of the Atlanta Braves Fan Confidence Poll, we couldn't survive even one week on an upswing without turning the poll downward once again. With the poll at a 73 last week -- a confident week, no doubt -- the series loss to the Padres sent us over the cliff once again. The fan confidence dropped to a 67, and likely should have been lower if not for an unexplained number of people who voted a 10.

I kept my vote at a 6, and unless the Braves can turn it around on the road at Florida for four, and then at home against Cincinnati, I fear that confidence may drop below a 6. On the flip side, if we can somehow beat Florida 3-out-of-4, or heaven forbid we should sweep them, then things are suddenly looking a bit more rosy. But let's not get ahead of ourselves. My 60 percent confidence doesn't really think we have a good chance at a sweep, and 3-out-of-4 will also be a hard sell. I'd settle for getting out of Florida without any sort of weather delay.
