Show #415: Crushing the Opposition and Vice Versa

Takeaways from the sweep to the Rockies. Acuna talk. Would you rather: Dansby/Culberson? Minter/Viz? Folty/the rest.

    Enjoy the podcasts. Listening now for last 3 years.

    What do you think of the Brave’s announcers. JF makes some idiotic commentary if you call it that.

    Hope Braves make it to playoffs.

    Earlier this month I predicted a 81-81 or .500 record for the Braves in 2018. Glad to report that was on the low side. Looking at the final 35 games of the season as of 8-24-18, September is brutal. Still, looking REALISTICALLY at each game without playing my homer cards, I’m seeing a 17-18 record going down the home stretch which gives the Braves a 89 win season.

    Will that get them in the post season dance? Iffy, I’d say. So the boys need to keep overperforming and win the division. Not impossible and whodathunk they’d be in this position in late August? Not me. Should be a helluva race as the horses pound down toward the finish line.

    Oh, meant to do this earlier but as to Richard’s comments on the Braves’ announcers, I totally agree with his assessment. I’m over Simpson and have been for several years. Chip seems a good guy so I’ll give him a bit of a pass but please quit making those goofy cliche` comments.

    I was impressed on Matt Diaz’ cameo appearance on the telecast recently. So, in a perfect world, I’d lure Schiambi back from ESPN for the big chair job and give the rook, Diaz a shot. Will it happen? Two chances: Slim and None with Slim just leaving town and None was driving.
