We can often take too much away from the first week of the season and fail to let the entire 162-game schedule play out before jumping to conclusions.
For the Braves, it was a successful week, but it was by no means perfect.
The pitching staff carried the team the first week, as starters led the MLB with a 1.63 ERA and relievers ranked third with a 1.35 ERA.
From the offensive standpoint, the Braves got off to a slow start, as they rank in the last 10 of team batting average (.221), on-base percentage (.271) and runs scored (15).
It was a tough week for many individuals in the Braves' starting lineup.
Let's play patience or panic with the five Braves who slumped in week one.
