Playing Patience or Panic on Atlanta Braves' 5 Worst Early Slumps
Alex Brandon

The first week of the 2014 MLB season is in the books, with the Atlanta Braves (4-2) taking two of three in both series against the Milwaukee Brewers and Washington Nationals.

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.
