OPS - .711 (14th)
They have Freddie Freeman/1B (.442/1.333) and Justin Upton/LF (.386/1.175) in the middle of the lineup, but the rest of the crew isn't anything spectacular. The group of Jayson Heyward/RF, BJ Upton/CF, and Dan Uggla/2B are off to slow starts (all batting below .200).
ERA - 2.44 (3rd)
WHIP - 1.18 (5th)
Pitching has been Atlanta's bread and butter for the past 3 decades, and continues to be the team's strength. Someone gets injured and they just plug someone in from the minors and never seem to skip a beat. Every starting pitcher going in this series has an ERA of 2.89 or less. Runs might be difficult to come by for the Phightins.
Tuesday's game will be washed out, turning it into a 3 game series rather than 4. As far as wins go, I have no clue.
