This lead should be good enough and we had a pretty good streak going until Hanson got pounded.
From Elias: The Braves had an early 5-2 lead before dropping a 11-7 decision to the Mets. Before Saturday night, the Braves had won the last 51 games in which they had owned a lead of at least three runs, dating back to September of last season. That had been the longest current streak for any major-league team and it was the second-longest the Braves have had since moving to Atlanta in 1966. (The Braves won 60 straight games with leads of three-or-more runs during the 2002 season.)
#24 – I know it’s easy for me to say, but I disagree. Heyward is not Frenchy. All we know is that he’s a potential superstar. With Frenchy he obviously had huge holes in his swings and was more of an athlete than a baseball player. That’s not the case with Heyward. Which, again, is why he should be in there.
MLB umpires certainly have a racket going on. Talk about job security.
35: Joe Simpson made another statement that I cannot recall at the moment that was sort of a dig at Proctor.
I really don’t think Proctor will be on the team if we make it to the post or maybe even in September. The Braves eventually did the right thing with KK and I think they’ll do the right thing with Proctor as well.
