Why would you bunt with Wilson. Odds are that Boscan who is a career minor league catcher was not going to have a Francisco Cabrera moment. Maybe if Fredi didn’t pinch hit for Conrad who is a switch hitter earlier Diaz would be available.
McCann must need another eye exam. 8 LOB; his bat is killing the Braves. I’ll look it up later but he must be around .180 BA since the all star break. He and Prado are showing no signs that they can contribute to a Wild card race. McCann is what Uggla was in the first half; you have to stick with him and pray he has a break out day. Braves pinch hitters must also be in the buck eighty range.
As someone tweeted last night when McCann struck out with the bases loaded, “Why doesn’t Alex Gonzalez ever get to come up in those situations?”
I remember stating a few weeks ago how I had faith no matter what. Down big, extra innings, whatever, I knew they were going to win. I now have the opposite of that. When we blew those two late opportunities, I knew we were losing. i even knew when Stanton came in that he was going to get a hit to knock in that run. I hate this feeling.
