Once again, the Atlanta Braves struggled to score runs against the New York Mets on Tuesday night, as the Mets were able to score 3 runs late to defeat the Braves, 4-1. The Braves were 1-8 with RISP during Tuesday’s game.  That does not bode well for getting runs or a win in any game. The only Braves run of the game came from the very 1st batter, Andrelton Simmons.  Simmons led off the game with a towering home run to left field.  The homer by Simmons would prove to be the only offense the Braves would get. They did have some chances that they were just not able to cash in on.  Their best chance came in the 2nd inning when the Braves had runners on 1st and 2nd with no outs.  They failed at getting any runs in the inning.

Thoughts On Trading D’Arnaud, Plawecki’s Projectability, and Targeting Corey Hart

Thoughts from Joe D. I wanted to chime in on a post that appeared here yesterday. It was an excellent discussion about the possibility of trading Travis d’Arnaud for Jurickson Profar, where Kevin Plawecki would fit in, and the possibility of taking a flyer on the currently injured Corey Hart who becomes a free agent after this season.
