Sorry for the delayed recap, and there won’t be one.
Instead, call it a game thread. Folty vs. something called a Jacob Waguespack. Tonight at 7:07 PM. Check it out.
Whoops, have to put more lines so the â€œkeep readingâ€ button comes up.
I still believe that George Lazenby was vastly underrated as Bond.
You could make the case that Camargo should be back up playing LF instead of Hamilton in CF, but whatever, they both suck.
That was a dud game.
Hamilton as a Brave:
.600 OBP and 1.100 OPS
Trailing only Cervelli! And, yes, I know it is a small sample size. But I think Hamilton does a few things well and can help us.
Arizona Fall League rosters are out.
Interesting to see the pitcher start out with 4 balls for a 2 and 2 count, then a strikeout.
Now Albies walks on 2 consecutive strikes.
Freeman is in his pull-everything and roll over to the right side phase. If anyone had a cure for it they’d be a billionaire.
Bo looks like his dad.
Folty is throwing a 2 seamer instead of his 4 seamer.
Nicely done, Folty.
Best bottom of the lineup in the majors!
Now Cervelli is hurt.
Not getting on another plane last night seems to have helped.
I love doubles.
That was fun. Now Folty, behave.
That was a nice stop by Flowers.
Mike can’t stand prosperity. Through three shutout innings, he’s needed 20 pitches a frame.
@10–in the TV pregame, Glavine said Folty needs to rely much more on a two seamer than a four seamer. I wonder if he and Folty had a chat.
Tyler being Tyler.
Flowers is absolute useless. High school catchers can do things he can’t/won’t
Tyler Flowers delenda est.
21 — It would match his slider pretty well going the opposite direction.
I’d like to point out that Folty had the batter struck out before the passed ball, but the umpire called a pitch down the middle a ball.
Umpires are so bad these days. It’s almost like they are trying to be so bad they get replaced by robots.
Snit can’t afford to be sleeping at the wheel tonight…time to get the pen up
Watching Folty pitch is as hard as listening to Chip do the play by play.
They just panned to the dugout and caught Snitker apparently cussing about Folty going 3-2 after being 0-2 on Vlad Jr.
Thank you, Snit.
Folty isn’t the answer right now…but who is? He throws way too many pitches but actually seemed to get worse with Flowers and his antics.
I think you have to keep trying with Folty. He’s had some very good starts since coming back.
97. Wow, Luke.
I apologize to Rob and all the Braves Journal folks for not posting a recap. Between having a generally rotten day and the Braves game being such a frustrating, disappointing affair, I totally whiffed. Thanks for everyone’s forbearance.
Nice job by Luke
Luke is apparently part of the answer to the middle innings.
@33 not with Flowers behind the plate. He looked a lot better with McCann or Cervelli than with Flowers
Thank you, Sliderman.
I just noticed how far Billy Hamilton chokes up on the bat… seemed like almost a whole hand’s width in that last at-bat. Somewhere my little league coach is nodding his approval. Has anyone else choked up that much in recent memory?
38 — The cross up that led to the 2nd passed ball gives credence to that statement.
Ronald is back to swinging through fastballs.
RAJ is back to swinging through nut high fastballs.
Come on, Luke.
Maybe the dugout should call pitches
I blame some of this on the rain. Can’t be easy for a pitcher like Luke who relies on spin to pitch with a wet ball.
Gerrit Cole 2020. Pay up, cowards.
Folty does need to pitch better if he wants to unseat one of the guys ahead of him to start a playoff game.
Good to see Vlad Jr get off to a good start in the mlb. However, he appears to be generously listed at 6-2 250. His size and shape wouldn’t appear to age well.
Chris Martin, well done.
The way Hamilton chokes up reminds me of “The Kitten,” Felix Millan. I noted, however, that Hamilton holds the bat in his palms instead of in his fingers.
Coldplay looked good.
Good job, Greenie.
Nice to see.
Have yourself a night, Joyce!
Man oh man, I’ve been pooh-poohing Joyce all season but what a night he’s having. Way to silence your critic, big guy!
@54 – Oh man, you are not kidding. Also, those sideburns… my word. Ready for those to make a comeback. (And thanks. As a semi-young’un, I love stuff like this.)
Wonderful way to end a tough road trip!
The Lady has the perfect end line.
I was an early DFA Joyce guy three weeks ago. First time i’ve ever been wrong.
For Acuna…keep your head DOWN..IT’S JUMPING UP LIKE A RABBIT..
back to back 3K nights mock your natural talents..
Bo Bichette is good, as to a lesser extent is Vlad. KLaw on record today as saying Biggio will not endure.
Billy’s first 0 for 4. Bunt, Billy, bunt.
