#50,Honestly I felt that way about Freeman with Glaus last year, but we all know that didn’t happen. Freeman was way further along than Pasto, so it’s pretty much an automatic no on the possibility of Gonzo being replaced by Pasto. The Braves really have to get more creative with nick names.
It also would not be wise to throw a 21 year old into a starting gig facing the Giants and Lincecum in October.
What is the disconnect with this offense? The starting pitching will regress in the 2nd half so our offense will have to win us this wild card. Honestly I don’t know why Hinske hasn’t been given left field full time.
Any concerns about the starting pitching going forward? If we start giving up 5 or 6 runs a game, we are in a lot of trouble. This has been going on since the break. I think we are now below .500 since then.
we need chipper and mccann back in the lineup bad.
and JJ has been a inconsistent since the all star break, but he ha had a couple of decent starts too. y’all didnt expect him to have an ERA under 2.00 for the season, did you?
the braves are in a little bit of trouble with the injuries, but they will be alright. just need to tighten up a bit. we will need a veteran like uggla to really step it up during this time…and so far he has done what he can.
