Sunday featured yet another poor showing from Atlanta Braves reliever A.J. Minter at home. Minter entered the eighth inning with a 2-0 lead, but blew the save after allowing 2 inherited runners to score. Even worse, he was charged with 3 more runs in the ninth, leading to a 5-2 loss for Atlanta.

That's 2 blown saves and 2 losses in his last 4 home appearances. Despite these struggles, though, Minter doesn't seem concerned at all.

Minter said he's not "too discouraged" about his most recent outing because he thought he "made some pretty good pitches." The veteran claimed he's not sure what he could even change, chalking it up to "that's baseball."

It's safe to say these comments haven't impressed Braves fans. A few commenters pleaded with Minter to reflect on his play and realize there are things he could've done differently, like going away from his cutter when it obviously wasn't working.

Even if Minter doesn't know what he could change, any player should be looking for ways to improve after recent poor performances. Hopefully the former World Series winner is able to work out his issues before he costs the team more wins.
