I need a moment to brag: my kid had 3 hits (one being a swinging bunt, which means he’s super fast), scored twice and got 2 outs today…one 5-3 and the other 8-4. He was in center which in my humble opinion shows his understanding the importance of getting the lead runner. I love baseball so much more than soccer.
This is from my brother to me yesterday…encouragement for our playoff hopes!
The Braves are just plain painful to watch. Losing Chipper and Kris Medlen and trading away Escobar and the sparkplug Gregor Blanco started us downhill. Tim Hudson’s arm is tired. jurrjens is now hurt. It’s pitiful. I watched the game last night-awful…spanked around by the last place Nationals…we suck…and the sad thing is there’s a really good chance we could still make the playoffs. But if we do, we’ll get bounced embarrassingly in the first round
Does our inability to beat the Nats and Pirates have any impact on us making the playoffs? These are like scrimmages, right?
A choke of epic proportions. We’ve lost 13 games in the standings in a month and a half. Is EOF hurt? Venters hasn’t gotten anyone out in a month and yet Bobby refuses to bring in another lefthander? Sad close.
