#48: someone posted a screenshot of the Gameday locations of those strikes. Angel Hernandez was very, very generous on that one.
And how annoying is it that the Nats scored their 4th run on another throwing error? Feels like the Braves need to go 6-1 (definitely no worse than 5-2) in their next 7 games, which are against -.500 teams Mets and Padres, while the Nats have one more against the Astros, then 6 on the road against +.500 teams (D-Backs and Giants).
@51 – Leah, (trying to be as un-jinxy as possible here), when the time comes and schedules are set and things are known, then I would make an announcement on the show, here and Twitter saying let’s all meet up at a certain place prior to the game and introduce ourselves, etc. Sound good?
One day some billionaire will buy the Braves. But I don’t want that to mean that we turn into the Phillies and spend money stupidly. See Ryan Howard’s contract or Jayson Werth’s contract. If being a rich team means making reckless dumb decisions I want to stay mid market.
Everyone could foresee that giving Paplebon, Howard and Werth those contracts were stupid even before they signed. The Uggla and Lowe deals were reasonable when they signed but their performance made the contracts bad.
