When I was listening to the Mets-Braves game, the announcer stated that the Braves are 2-14 when they don't hit a home run, and 27-4 when they do hit (at least) one home run in a game.

After watching their lead dwindle to 1/2 of a game on May 17th, the Braves have gone 10-4 over their last 14 games to reestablish themselves as the top team in the N.L. East.

They are also 7-3 in head-on play against the Nationals, and have beaten them 11 out of 14 times, dating back to last season.

Kinda surprised to see the Braves trade Juan Francisco for just a 25 year old AA reliever. He had a phenominal Spring Training and had a rep as a good defensive 3Bman, but he was striking out at a remarkably high rate, and he looked at least 20 lbs overweight the last time I saw him. This will give more at bats to Chris Johnson - who some treated an afterthought in the Prado/Upton trade. If Johnson does better than Prado (which looks likely), this might go down as one of the all-time best trades for Atl. Johnson's defense can be problematic, but he can hit.

Most critics of Atl point to the fact that they strike out a lot, and come playoff time, that somehow becomes a bigger weakness. Assuming they make the playoffs, it'll be very interesting to see if that holds true - particularly with the Upton brothers.
