The season hasn’t even started yet, and the Braves have already scored 15 runs, which means that the Braves are on pace to score an infinite number of runs. (Not in the same game, as Kenny Mayne would say. That would be a record.)
With the caveat that none of this actually matters — at all, you should basically ignore the results both good and bad, the Braves scored seven runs in the first inning because Ubaldo Jimenez threw nothing but fastballs and he couldn’t locate them, it being his first start in five months — BASEBALL is back and all of this is awesome. Mallex Smith, who is faster than that, hit two stand-up triples in the first inning and finished a single shy of the cycle. (The second one may have been aided by a Mark Trumbo
replay misplay out in left field. But whatever. See above.) Ozhaino Albies went 3-for-5 with a homer and he only turned 19 in January. Dansby Swanson went 0-for-5 with seven men left on base and Aaron Blair gave up four runs in his second inning after having a good first inning; they were mixed debuts, but it was a thrill to see the players we got in the Shelby Miller trade suiting up for the team.
