All I got is a thread title and a picture of Ozzie & Ronald.

Seriously, it is time they lose the chop.

Ender Inciarte is my HACKING MASS CF, so naturally i saw him hit one out last night.

I wasn't going to start this thread, but as much as I hate the top brass and especially the Cobb Co. government, I love this collection of players. I couldn't watch the games last year on PS Vue, but switched to Sling and there they all are, so fuck it, I'm a fanboy again.

Albies somehow keeps up this production for a whole year and he is going to have one of the alltime great rookie seasons ever.

Turned 21 in January, but he lost his rookie status last year. If you did one of those theoretical everyone-available drafts, where would he go? There are so many great players 25-and-under, but I have to believe he'd be top five or six.

The guy has to slow down as if he pulls off those power numbers across a year, that's going to be a heck of a lot of doubles and homers for someone playing second base.

Today is Bobby Cox's birthday. Saw that and led me to look up his record as a player as I did not know anything about it. Cox went through a few clubs only to make the big leagues at age 27 and 28 with the Yankees in 1968 and 1969. Looking it up, Cox played in Mantle's last year as a Yankee and Munson's rookie year.

Something ain't right with Teheran tonight.

Ugh, they're doubling down on it. I guess with the new LEDs they can dim the stadium lights at a moment's notice, and now they're bringing the lights down to near-dark so attendees can chop with their phones' flashlights on when the opposing team makes a pitching change.

Braves' TV color guy was just poohpoohing "Catches Above Average" -- "What's average?" like he doesn't know they'd use a baseline from Statcast data.

major idiot, which ex-player is he?

Freddie Freeman's numbers vs. LHP are ridiculous: .338/.399/.599 in 158 PA.

The last left-handed hitter to eclipse those numbers against LHP, over a full season, was Barry Bonds in 2003.

Braves have only 3 off days the rest of the season. (Brewers have 8.)

Acuña goin' nuts this week.

Acuña is the youngest player to homer in 5 straight games. Jay Jaffe:

It gives me such an ulcer to watch Teheran pitch -- gets himself into jam after jam after jam and somehow comes out the other end with a quality start.

If they actually win the division there is no way I see them making it out of the first playoff round with that Russian Roulette bullpen.

Don't be surprised if Chad Sobotka gets tossed for using a foreign substance on the ball someday. He keeps his left forearm loaded up with something and isn't discreet about going to it between pitches.

Adrian:
What kind of market will there be for Markakis this offseason? Think the Braves will risk a Qualifying offer?

Dan Szymborski:
I’m not sure there will be a big one. He’s actually been fairly lousy in the second-half and nobody *really* believed he was an MVP candidate.
