+45

Plus 45.

+45

Plus 45.

That's the number of the day.

It also happens to be the Braves' run differential this season. In other words, they have out-scored their opponents by 45 runs. That's the third best mark in the National League, behind only the Cubs and the Phils. According to the Pythagorean win expectation used by various stat heads to predict the amount of games a team should have won based on their run differential, the Braves should be 42-32 right now.

But they are 36-38. To me, that indicates they are bound to start winning some ballgames.
