Braves have played 36.6% of their games against the top 36 pitchers (based on fWAR). This produces a record of 18-8 (winning 69.2% of the time). The record for these top 36 pitchers against the Braves is 5-14 (the bullpens are not the usual reason for a Braves win). Braves are hitting .248/.291/.379. This is not bad, but it does mean that our pitchers have been going toe to toe against the season's elite. Also, Folty ranks 12th on the fWAR list, while Newcomb is 22nd.

You could add Soroka in there somewhere if he played as well as he has been and started with us at the beginning of the season. We’ll see if he regresses but we can expect him to keep stacking up WAR if he continues his performance at the current rate
