Overall, we pitched well (Maholm's shaky inning notwithstanding). Problem is, our offense is full of power, but short on consistent contact. Guys that have carried us in the beginning (J Upton, Gattis) are cooling off...and no one is picking up the slack offensively.

Getting Freeman back will certainly help, as will having Chris Johnson start at 3B the majority of the time for the forseeable future will also help. But man, that inning that we had the bases loaded with no outs and only scored one run reminded me too much of last year's Braves. And if we keep that up, despite all of our envious power potential, it won't mean a **** thing.

There was a time in the 90s and into the 2000s that the Braves no matter how good they were or how bad the Marlins were just had trouble consistently beating them for whatever reason. Well since about 2006 that team has been the Pirates. The Braves just for whatever reason have troubling consistently beating the Pirates. It is what it is.
