Expectations are problem lowest in the league for the Atlanta Braves this year.
They’ll look to bounce back from a Home Opener loss when they take on the Washington Nationals in game 2 of their 3 game set.
The Braves have one of the youngest and most unproven bunches in the major leagues this year and things are expected to be very tough on them here in 2016.
They showed a lot of heart and fight in their Home Opener, but ultimately fell in extra innings 4-3 to kick their campaign off. Atlanta got zero production from their lineup in the loss. The Braves bottom 5 went 0 for 17 with 8 K’s. That is something they clearly cannot do this year, especially such a giant chunk of the lineup.
Atlanta will go with Bud Norris on Wednesday, which is a pitcher who they need to perform well. Norris went just 3-11 last year with an ERA of 6.72. He was put back in the bullpen after his horrific season and was signed this past offseason to a starting role. If he can bounce back to the Norris of old, he could provide a giant boost for them this year and the next.
The Nationals are the complete opposite of the Braves heading into this year. The Nats have such high expectations, ones that even for them will be tough to live up to.
Washington got off on the right foot as they grabbed a 4-3 extra innings win thanks in large part to newly acquired Daniel Murphy. Murphy not only jacked a home run, but had the game winning RBI in the 10th inning.
Washington will send RH Stephen Strasburg, who has a lot resting on his shoulders after a solid campaign last season. He finished 11-7 with a 3.46 ERA, but did battle some injuries throughout the season. Staying healthy will be the number one key for him this year.
