Braves on pace for 56-106 record

We're already finished with half of the 2016 season. Here's what the Braves are on pace for.

The Braves are 28-53 through the first half of the 2016 season. They are 20.5 games back of the Nationals in the NL East. They're 7.5 games back of fourth place Philadelphia.

Atlanta started the season 0-9 and was 9-28 (.243) under former manager Fredi Gonzalez. Since Brian Snitker took over, the Braves have gone 19-25 (.432). If the Braves continue with that .432 winning percentage through the rest of the season, they'll finish with a 63-99 record. That would be much better than the 120-loss season they were facing before the managerial change.

Let's just use multiplication and double the stats of the players to see what they may finish with by the end of the season.
