The Braves' 2016 to-do list

The Braves have plenty of items on this season's to-do list, but winning lots of games isn't one of them. Jerry Crasnick lays out the six biggest considerations.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

Brian Snitker has received about 300 texts and phone messages of congratulations since taking over for Fredi Gonzalez as Atlanta's new manager Tuesday. "I had to delete a bunch of voice mails because that box was way full," Snitker said Friday. He's made a lot of friends since breaking into the Atlanta organization as a player in 1977.

Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer 

40 games into the season, the Braves have 10 wins - by 10 different pitchers! Elias reports they're the first team ever to get 40 games in without a 2-game winner. Hard to do!

Braves, Twins are historically bad

Both Minnesota and Atlanta lost on Thursday to drop to 10-30 on the season. The last time two teams lost at least 30 of their first 40 games in the same season was 1904 (Senators: 7-33 / Phillies: 9-31), per Elias Sports Bureau.

Stats & Info

Chris Carter's 434-foot shot off Cubs starter Jason Hammel led the way, followed by Jeff Francoeur's solo shot, Daniel Murphy's first HR against his former team, the Mets, and Carlos Santana's first of two homers.

Three things we learned Wednesday

Johnny Cueto and the Giants are hot, Adam Wainwright is "dangerous" and the Twins and Braves are both on a 44-win pace this season.

Jim Bowden ESPN Senior Writer 

Kansas City Royals in my opinion should pursue Julio Teheran of the Braves and Howie Kendrick of the Dodgers as early season trade targets.
