The Braves were just on the edge of the playoff race anyway... but here's a tip.
When you are on the cusp of contending, try not to lose two straight to the team right in front of you.
And if you do, and you go home and play three games with a playing out the string Reds team... try not to get swept.
There is never a good time to lose 5 straight, but a really BAD time is when you are trying to climb back into the race and not being able to take advantage of the Phillies 4 game losing streak.
It's a nice rebuilding year for the Braves, but put away those foam tomahawks. This team isn't playing in October
