Show #163: A Middling Week for the Braves

The good and bad with the offense.  Hanson and JJ in the post season.  Faith in Fredi.  And the NLCS Hope Meter.

    And then Gonzo submits an incredibly useless at-bat. Ugh. C’mon Ross!

    Is it my imagination or did the Braves have pretty good stats at the begnning of the year with two outs or at least RISP? Might have been last year.

    I was watching hilights on a small phone screen during my morning meeting… But did grampa go upper deck on the mets?! Stud.

    Oooh double-switch, gonzo gone. Score one point for Fredie G. on that one. You’ve got to have your head in the game no matter what you did your last AB/PA.

    How is Wilson’s defense?

    Steve Says:

    #157 – Used to be above average. Now it’s serviceable.

  9. 159
    Steve Says:

    Let me amend that. His defense is awesome!

    Frigatedoc Says:

    No kidding Steve! Is he using Walt Weiss “the creature glove?” Remember that?

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    I think we need to play more double headers… 😉

    (Joe just said this will be the third double header sweep of the year)

    Couldn’t have done without the Chip Caray “how sweep it is” call. Great day and great job Braves!

    Nate Says:

    #162, Always nice when Chip flexes his creative muscles…

    Steve Says:

    #160. Yes. Great reference.

    Good day. It was a good, good day. Most happy about: Prado looking more comfortable. Teheran looking good. Chipper continuing to kill it. Heyward getting some walks. Good day.

    Steve Says:

    #163 – Indeed.

  16. 166
    Nate Says:

    164, yes, and a great day for the young guys out in the ‘pen.

  17. 167
    Nate Says:

    The Packers might make this an even better day for Atlanta sports.

    Walker Says:

    We needed that. Now a big series ahead.

    Nate Says:

    Watching game 2 that I recorded. what was going on out at ss in the 6th? Good grief, fellas.

    Alex is great when he can get to a ball, but is it just me, or is he getting closer and closer to having Edgar Renteria’s range at short.

    Nate Says:

    Chipper @2nd after hit 2600: It looked like Chipper wrote some initials and then rubbed them out.

  21. 171
    Nate Says:

    On second look he’s just rubbing dirt. Weird. I feel really dumb for watching that twice.

  22. 172
    Nate Says:

    Time to bury the birds.

  23. 173
    Leah Says:

    Nate, I’m dying to know what he was doing in the dirt.

    G-Dawg Says:

    Well that was a good way to sweep. Nice job, boys, let’s keep this kind of play going!

    So, while we’ve been focusing on the Brewers as our opponent in the NLDS, perhaps we should also look at Arizona, who is only 1.5 games behind Milwaukee for the 2nd-best NL record.

    Chase Field has not been a very friendly place for the Braves it seems. We lost both games this season, one a 2-1 game where JJ pitched well but got no run support; and the other one in which Kimbrel blew 1-run a save opportunity in the 11th inning. We were 2-2 against them at Chase last season, and in one of those games Heyward took out McLouth in the outfield.

    Still, I like our chances against Arizona a lot better than I do Milwaukee, who’s playing Philly this weekend while Arizona plays SD. I think Milwaukee is a much better team and will wind up with the better record, but I would think it’d be in our favor to play Arizona instead.
