The message in the Braves clubhouse Tuesday night added a fitting final insult to a dismal homestand:
"Bus TBD. Issues with aircraft."
It has been that kind of opening month for the Braves as they try to snap a 15-game home-run drought — the longest power outage in their Atlanta history. Even the Braves' charter flight out of town has difficulty getting off the ground.
At 4-16, Atlanta has baseball's worst record. The Braves opened the season with nine straight losses, and an 11-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox left them with a new seven-game skid. They've won only one of 13 home games and begin a two-game series at Boston on Wednesday night.
