It’s a happy day, and I don’t want to cloud it up, but how does the Atlanta media just let it go now that it’s been confirmed that this is exactly what happened:
1. Glaus’s knees got too bad to play.
2. He said they were not too bad to play.
3. Proceeds to stink it up for a month, obviously hurt.
4. Goes to the DL
HELLO?? Tired of being lied to as a fan. Don’t lie to the team (and the fans) about your thumbs, eyeballs, and knees any more. It hurts the team. Playing below replacement level when you should be on the DL is bull.
Okay, I’m done with that issue until Heyward goes on the DL in three weeks after dribbling a hundred more grounders.
I’m teaching myself to keep score. Thought you should know just in case I seem subdued or distracted. Oh Huddy…stop being so dramatic. Just get some outs already! Just kidding! Awesome start! Wonder if Huddy took Marta to The Ted?
His pitches look great on gameday. Like they’re getting some lucky swings. Of course movement doesn’t show on the graphic, so I can’t say if his pitches are as lively as usual. But that sequence to Dunn, for example, looked masterful on location.
Hate the Phils. New ballgame Huddy! Anybody know how I score Mac’s crossing homeplate? Melky doesn’t get the RBI due to the DP so do I still put a 6 with a circle in the bottome left corner? Does anybody know what I’m talking about?
August 1st was also the beginning of Gonzo’s lethal error stretch. Hard to make an argument that he’s played better between the two. Both have been pretty mediocre. You also have to remember that Escobar’s seeing a lot of pitchers for the first time. Gonzo played in the NL for a long time.
