Gabe Kapler’s first game as the manager of a Major League Baseball team didn’t go well.
Kapler’s team was cruising, up 5–0 in the sixth inning when Aaron Nola put one man on base. Kapler lifted him for a lefty to face Freddie Freeman, despite his ace having thrown only 68 pitches.
Freeman homered and the Braves came back to win 8–5. It was a sour way to start a season that feels like it could go really well or really terrible, depending on some breaks. Philadelphia fans will struggle not to overreact to game number one.
Jake Arrieta will go on Friday and Vince Velasquez in this game. The rotation starts to get fuzzy around this point. Consider Velasquez an x-factor for Philly’s success this season.
So the Braves’ season started with a win, but there aren’t supposed to be so many of those this season.
Scott Kazmir was injured in spring training and probably won’t be back until at least May. The other veteran arm Atlanta brought in over the winter was Brandon McCarthy, who starts tonight.
Of course, if either of those guys pitch well, they are likely to be used as trade bait. Atlanta is still very early into this rebuild. The young pitching is what to watch this year.

Probably a lot of runs in this one, but Velasquez is capable of turning in gems, too.
