    I've been trying to guess how many games the Braves might win over the next two months, and while I don't expect April of last year... I'll have to figure it out.
    48 wins to match last year's total

    The Braves have acquired right-hander Enrique Burgos from the Diamondbacks in exchange for cash considerations. Burgos, 26, was designated for assignment by Arizona earlier this week.

    You mean that in a good way or a bad way? I get the impression he's probably more capable than James Loney, but is he going to have to end up sharing time with Peterson or something?

    He is a career 110 wRC+ 1B...which is well below average for a 1B. And even worse - he hardly ever faces left-handed batters. With normal handedness platooning, he just isn't a good hitter at all.

    He is a surprisingly decent 1B for a fat guy.

    Better than Loney? Aabout the same level of eh.

    Okay so he'll end up in a platoon with Peterson.

    Naturally, an article says he'll be an in "everyday" role, but they'll find out fast it isn't going to work.

    Well, Matt's doing his best Freddie impression, that's something.

    The Braves have recalled right-hander Matt Wisler from Triple-A Gwinnett and designated fellow righty Josh Collmenter for assignment in order to clear a spot on the active roster.

    Not that it's going to help. No important move there. I do appreciate that they've been doing okay since Freeman got hurt, but I'm waiting for the bottom to fall out.
