The Braves NEED OFFENSE instead of “pitching prospects” for 2 good hitters they got rid of. When you lose 1-0, that is pathetic., And if I were Miller, I would demand to be traded to a better team. Just for LACK OF SUPPORT. Just think what his record would be now, if he was fortunate enough to get some runs scored FOR HIM.
