The Braves are 10-1 behind the National League’s fifth-best OPS and best ERA. And they just took the first two games against the defending NL East champion Nationals. Nats starter Stephen Strasburg and second baseman Danny Espinosa are not impressed, though. Via Chase Hughes of CSN Washington:

“They’re good, I don’t think they’re better than us,” Danny Espinosa said. “They’re a good ballclub, they have talent. They’re hot right now, they only lost one game, but they’re hot. It all evens out.”

And Strasburg:

“Honestly, I think our lineup’s better,” he said. “They’re hot right now. It’s early and it’s not about how many wins you necessarily finish up with in April, it’s how many you have at the end of the year.”
