Exactly how it should be. Let's all take a deep breath, enjoy the great season so far, and look forward to our upcoming 9-game home stand.

Think about this: The Braves have the 2nd best record in the NL and the 6th best record in baseball and we've played the fewest home games of anyone in either league. We've been without our #2/#3 starter for most of the season, received basically no production from the left side of our infield, and had sub-par seasons from Brian McCann and Nate McLouth. Yet, we're still in 1st place in the NL East.

I love this team.
