Ryan asked me to do this, and I hope I don’t screw it up:

I’m sorry. My kids won my night tonight. 😂
It would appear that MLB.TV, in its zeal for marketing the postseason, has clipped me the last three games of the season on the radio.
Never mind. Found it. Spoke to a customer service representative in Panama City, Panama, who’s pulling for his countrymen, Camargo and Araúz, playing in tonight’s game.
495 on that Acuna HR; the team needs 8 more in these 3 games to set the monthly record.
Wright looking great early too.
7.5 more because that was literally a home run and a half.
Are there sadder words betokening less hope for the human race than: “Man, that’s a beautiful logo?”
No, Chip. It isn’t. It’s a logo.
Who is this alien who has regenerated the dedicated remains of Kyle Wright?
Markakis looks toast.
Darn, Wright was on pace for a Maddux if he hadn’t lost control in the 7th.
Wasn’t able to watch the game; was Wright legit? It’s not like his performance will have crucial implications for our postseason….
@10 I’d say it was a very encouraging start even if it was against the red sox. He just lost his cóntrol completely in the 7th as long as that doesn’t happen in the early innings, we have a capable 3rd starter.
How bad are these guys with Risp and less than 2 outs? Dansby just had a hole in his bat.
Rumor mill from a “source” is both Folty and Panda are on the taxi squad.
With as many runs the Braves have scored this year, imagine how many there would be if we just got half the men home that we’ve left on base all season long. It remains an issue.
Not the right situation for a 3-0 swing
Can they stop swinging 3-0 withvthe bases loaded and popping it up? I am so friggin angry in a meaningless game.
Give Ozuna the MVP; not a joke or exaggeration.
3-0 bases loaded with 1 out in a meaningless game is EXACTLY the time you swing away. Didn’t work, but doesn’t mean it’s wrong.
This team is awesome!
The result (pop up) is what ticks me off, at least swing at something you can handle , not a borderline pitch. Not the first time its happened this year with ozzie either.
Here we go on the melancon experience…..
Ozzie’s wrist cannot be right.
This game is so stupid
Just call camargo back if hechavarrias defense is going to screw us like it has yesterday and today.
Defense is just ugly.
As crazy as this is, Marcell Ozuna could be in the lead for the triple crown right now, assuming Juan Soto doesn’t qualify. Unreal!
Freddie is gonna need a HR here to get my mvp endorsement back.
Edit: a BB? Not good enough, freeman!
@17 – I don’t know where you get that from. 3-0 pitch with the bases loaded and a pitcher not hitting his spots does not scream swing away, especially in a tight ballgame (no matter how meaningless.)
And Freddie shows you how it’s done. THAT is plate discipline.
@22, agreed. If he’s going to be a butcher in the field, it’s hard to see any argument for him over Johan.
So now the bullpen is going to implode? Playoffs might not last long with that the case
Just a lot of loud swearing over here.
Our shutdown bullpen has not been so lately.
Melancon- 2 straight iffy appearances
Minter – control issues last couple appearances
Greene – crapped the bed 2 or 3 straight appearances
Martin – first runs allowed tonight since the beginning of the year
Luke jackson – luke jackson
Webb – pretty good in sss
Oday – good in short spurts
Matzek and dayton – good but havent been used in many high leverage situations
Forgot the fresh prince , who might be good, might be HR prone.
Duvall is swinging terribly lately, I think the HR thing got into his mind.
Damnit dansby, about 3 feet short of a GW HR. Eat your wheaties, fool!
And now the inciarte defensive replacement comes back to bite them
@31 – To be fair, Melancon had some bad luck that inning, but a good point.
And nice, Dansby!!
As a baseball fan, I cannot tell you how upset it makes me that Cristian Pache isn’t here and Ender is.
@33 tonight yes, but the previous appearance he also had bases loaded and had a lucky DP save him. So it goes both ways.
Melancon tonight just seemed to catch a case of the Luke Jacksonitis in regards to infield ground balls.
I think that just won him the MVP.
I hope I don’t offend anyone, but I think Freddie Freeman is good at baseball.
Our offense is spectacular, as long as we don’t have runners on third.
Can he have MVP back now, Carl?
Well, I guess I will keep my word, Freeman with a BB and GWHR goes back to being MVP.
But its really close.
I hope they dont cannibalize votes from each other.
Edit: hey Nick, I was typing it up, lol.
We just locked in the 2 seed with that win.
There is your free man! He may not win the NL MVP, but he is our MVP all day every day!
35-23, extrapolates to 98 wins.
Tucker Davidson pitches tomorrow night.
