The Braves are trying to trade for Ryan Dempster, which is obviously a good thing. But until that move can really be confirmed, this team is going the wrong way. After missing a prime opportunity to position itself toward the top of the NL East against the Nationals, Atlanta dropped the series opener against the struggling Miami Marlins.
Fortunately for the Braves, Tim Hudson takes the mound on Tuesday. They could sure use him. In the team's three-game losing streak, they've scored just four runs while batting .181. Mark Buerhle (9-9, 3.29 ERA) will start for the Marlins.
