In where we guess how Chip Caray will spin the lack of deals at the trade deadline.

Caray on Cole Hamels

“A lot of fans wanted the Braves to get a frontline starter at the trade deadline, but the Braves think they already have him here in Cole Hamels. Folks might forget, he won 17 games way back in 2011.”

“What you get with a guy like Hamels is someone who knows pitching and throws strikes. He may not be what he was in 2008 but he’ll go to the rubber and give you 5 innings.”

“When we look back on the Hamels signing, while he hasn’t pitched in actual competitive games, partner you’ve got to believe what he’s provided guys like Max Fried and Mike Soroka, off the field, has been worth it’s weight in gold!”

“Hamels is a guys that’s been there, done that. He’s a World Series MVP, so there’s not a single guy the Braves could have acquired that would give them the experience he brings to this young staff come playoff time.”

Carey on Chad Sobotka

“Well partner, the Braves didn’t do much at the trade deadline aside from adding a solid left-handed pitcher in Tommy Milone, but they are getting Chad Sobotka back today after placing Will Smith on the Injured List. Jeff, some might not remember but Sobotka has been moved up and down more than a tiny shirt on Chris Farley and he’s very good at being ready when called upon and that’s because he’ll know he won’t be used unless the Braves are getting pounded. You always need a veteran presence like that around.”

Carey on Mike Foltynewicz

“Folty starts the game with a fastball high for ball one, and with that, he has officially qualified for the loss.”

“You know partner, losing some of his velocity may be a good thing if Foltynewicz went down to the alternate training site and learned how to be a pitcher and not just a thrower.”

“Folty looks like he has been eating some pizza! He has been putting on some weight and has gained his fastball velocity back.”

Carey on Folty and Hamels

“In a season where teams are seeing each other so often, it’s actually an advantage for Atlanta that Folty and Hamels haven’t pitched. The other teams don’t really have a book on them.”

Caray on Ozzie Albies

“Alex looked into a left handed second baseman to fill in and then go to the bench but when you can get an all star back at that position, that’s as good as it gets. Then you get a high caliber starting worthy 2nd base in Camargo off the bench.”

“Albies, after missing some time with a sore wrist is back in the line up tonight. He will deepen and bolster this Atlanta Braves lineup, it will almost like making a trade for a big bat at the deadline to give your team a spark.”

“Well partner, I bet the time off for Ozzie will be a huge benefit for him. His legs are fresh. He isn’t worn down by the long season. Uh, I know it’s only a 60 game season, but each game means so much more mentally.”

Caray on Nick Markakis

“Nick Markakis is going to go down as one of the Braves’ greatest free agent signings of all time. Nick Markakis is going to go down as one of the Braves’ greatest free agent signings of all time. Nick Markakis is going to go down as one of the Braves’ greatest free agent signings of all time. Have I said that 3 times? Well, how about 4. Nick Markakis is going to go down as one of the Braves’ greatest free agent signings of all time”

Caray on Scott Schebler

“That ball is walloped… DEEP to right center, welcome to the Braves, Scott Scheb—actually, Robles is able to track it down just shy of the track for out number two…”

Caray on Sean Newcomb

“If he’s going to be the #2 starter the Braves need him to be, Newcomb needs to go deeper into games. He can do that by pitching to contact. Don’t have to rack up the strikeouts to be a big league pitcher.”

Caray on Tucker Davidson

“When you’re talking about a guy like Davidson, you know all about the pure stuff, what you don’t hear about is the hard work he’s put in to get here. What we need to see is the ability to throw strikes and trust your defense.”

“Tucker Davidson another one of these highly regarded prospects the Braves have accumulated over the last few years. Let’s see if he can follow Ian Anderson’s debut and have an impact on the club as well.”
