Good Lord, we have a Jesse Chavez warm-up sighting. Thank God we’re up by 4. This Meyer guy, who has looked absolutely terrible last night and tonight, is one of the 3 no-names JS traded to get Hudson. I’d say that deal worked out pretty good for the Braves.
I hope Tim Hudson let all the air out of the crew chief’s tires last night. if they had lost that game because of the bottom of the 4th it would have been a disgrace. It wasn’t even like they were getting a full game in.
McOut – yeah, the 3 lefties in the PITT series is not the greatest news, but I’m very, very heartened by this series with the Marlins. Not Chipper so much (although last night was certainly good to see) but more with two consecutive good nights from Esco and the continued resurgence of Melky. Little to no Hinske this weekend probably, but we scored 15 runs the past two games without the benefit of a single Hinske hit.
Good call on the line up, Steve. Unfortunately, I bet we won’t see Omar ever start again unless it’s for an infielder, which is rediculous. I would much rather have his bat n the line up than McLouth’s. McLouth sacrificed for a pitcher a week ago. A pitcher. He put both runners in scoring position for a pitcher and 2 outs. The guy is hopeless. Even he knows it. The question is, when will Bobby figure it out?
Prado, Heyward, Chipper, Glaus, Escobar, Cabrera, Ross, McLouth, Lowe
Having McLouth in the line up is like having 2 pitchers not named Hudson in the line up. I just hope we don’t end up seeing an entire year of McLouth’s struggles, which I guess we almost have… Is he still under contract next year? I hope not, but I guess our manager next year might not assume a guy should play everyday based on past results.
Lowe and Hudson both raking it compared to McOut. Your right Steve, they’ve played well with 2 guaranteed outs every 9 hitters. It all comes back to Prado, Hinske, and Heyward. Those 3 have carried the Braves offense.
Hey guys I found your blog via bottom 9 and I really like what I have read. I am moving to Georgia next year to play basball at Reinhardt University and will convert into a Braves fan. I was wandering if maybe I could get some love and be placed on your guys’s links list. I am just starting out with blogging and would really be grateful. Thank you!
Same lineup as last night. I guess Bobby saw something in McOut’s K Trilogy last night to warrant another start. Would love to see Melky in CF and Omar in LF against the Lefty. If McOut gets out hit by our pitcher, again, then Omar should play. Just a thought… Has McOut had a hit in the last week????
