2018 Is The Atlanta Braves Year

The Atlanta Braves have a drive this year that's unstoppable.

Thechased at English Wikipedia

The Atlanta Braves are three games into the season, and they have already proven they are here to win games and want to go to the World Series.

So, what makes the Braves contenders this year?

1) Two Words: Ender Inciarte

Okay, okay so this one might (a stretch) be a little bias because he's my favorite, but his stats for this year are already amazing. With just three games he has 5 RBI's, 5 hits, and 2 runs with his 15 at bats. Oh yeah, and his average is .333.

2) Ryan Flaherty is here for the record books

Flaherty is a new in the Braves organizations and is already setting records. He is the third third baseman in Atlanta Braves franchise history to score four runs and collect four hits in a game. With just 13 at bats he has 5 runs, 7 hits, and 1 RBI with a .538 average.

3) Brian Snitker is Bobby Cox Jr.

Brian Snitker is not known for being ejected out of games throughout his career as a manager, but he has managed to be thrown out of 2/3 games already. In his whole career he has only been ejected 4 times, now Bobby Cox has been ejected 161 as a manager (which means he is the actual MLB record holder, that's our Bobby!) At this rate Snitker will catch up, he stands up for his players and how he thinks situations should be treated.

4) The teams communication

With every single play they seem to be in sync. They know who to throw to, what to do if a runner tries to steal a base, when to get out of the way of another player making a play. They just know whose job is whose.

5) Everyone has improved

Dansby Swanson had an average of .249 last season, and you could tell he had so much potential. His average as of right now is .357 with 2 hits and RBI's and 5 hits. He has already scored in run after run to help the Braves win two games. You can see how much he loves the game with the excitement on his face and his drive. He's so young, I can see so many great things in his future as an Atlanta Braves. Not only has Swanson improved, but I can see it with the whole team: Markakis, Freeman, Adams, and all of them.

6) Ozhaino Aalbies is a jet

He is legit lightening fast. He can make a double out of a single in just a blink of an eye. He has also hit a home-run this season, so he has a lot of potential for this team. While his average is just .125 he has 3 runs, 2 hits & RBI's with his 16 at bats.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
