Freddie Freeman: “right now, I suck”

The Atlanta Braves are the worst team in the National League (though the Cincinnati Reds are hot on their tails for that title). Star first baseman Freddie Freeman is one of many Braves hitters struggling, and he was incredibly blunt about his season so far on Thursday. “Right now, I suck.
