We Ain't Afraid of Dem 1st-Place Braves (6/23)

Recommended Posts

We just can't get a shutdown inning.

Score 4 ... immediately give one back.

Score 3... immediately give one back.

At this rate we'll only win by 20 or so.

If you are a pitcher and you reach safely in a plate appearance, you would like your getting on base to at least contribute towards 1 or more runs scoring.

I remember when Roy Lee Jackson hit a triple with 2 outs and nobody on base for the Mets in 1980. When Jackson was standing on 3rd base, Ralph Kiner said "He may wish that that had never happened." The next batter made an out to end the inning.

Evidently not. 

He found it!    95 on the high heat K to end the inning.    Love it.

I've noticed the Braves don't seem to go with the current league trend of hitting. Hitting the ball where it is pitched, not over swinging, or trying to pull everything.Their approach is refreshing.

Will NOT miss Machado’s play at SS. Zero range hurt more than helped on defense this year.   That was a tailor made DP ball for an above average SS.  Machado’s range and play at SS is Jeteresque!
