I wonder if Chipper will use his bully pulpit to call out Heyward for not running out that ball tonight that might have plated another run? Probably not because afterall 80% of Heyward [which is exactly what he gave jogging down to first] is…
At least Brian Jordan did: That’s something you learn in the Minor Leagues.
That pisses me off to no end and that’s not Braves baseball — I hope Fredi said something to him after he got back to the dugout or at least stared him down.
Yeah, I’ll tell ya something about Brian Jordan — say what you will about his lacking verbal skills but I love listening to him, especailly when he’s behind the mic at the GWT games where he really lays it out for folks to think about. He really tells it like it is.
When BJ called out Chipper last year, the man was probably right. Jordan was an NHL football player and knows a thing or two about conditioning, playing hurt, being injured, and knowing the difference of each. So I really think BJ knew what he was talking about last year — even though he had to call Chipper up and smooth things over a bit.
I didn’t really expect them to win but it was sad anyway. I missed Anne…also sad ( stupid smart phone blockers). Hamilton’s on my fantasy team so they obviously had a pretty good night. Final thought: Matthew Kaminski has become one of my favorite parts of The Ted.
Amazing how our wins seem to come in the tooth and nail, have the chips fall our way, type of fashion, while the losses are just ass kickings. Not a trend I am fond of. And way to totally give back the 6-1 week.
Out of Meds, Beachy, Minor, Teheran, and Delgado, I think Meds and Beachy are obviously best suited for the rotation next year. Julio and Randall look like they could use some more seasoning. Minor has impressed me the least. Steve’s right about Meds last year. The Braves were 13-1 when he started. That’s insane. He’s the anti-KK.
If you trade Lowe the rotation goes from a huge strength to a huge question mark, imo. It sounds to me like Meds is best suited for the pen this year because it will be easier for him to come back quicker. I’m all for him in the rotation next year.
P.S. never even mentioned Vizcaino. Our pitching depth is stupid.
