GM explains why Braves are in good place despite losing streak

The Atlanta Braves are mired in their first five-game losing streak since 2017 after falling 4-2 to the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night.

But Braves GM Alex Anthopoulos still thinks that the team is in a good place when talking about their struggles over the past 40 games, per David O'Brien of The Athletic.

“Look, we haven’t played well. I’m stating the obvious there. The one thing is, you look at the (NL East) standings obviously, but the fact that the majority of the National League hasn’t played well has been good for us … So as much as you can look at the standings and you’re still looking at playoff spots and so on — we have to play better obviously, but the fact that you can keep your head above water when you’re not playing well … we are fortunate that the NL hasn’t played up to its capabilities across the board.
