We have a new writer here at Braves Journal. His name is Alec Bohm. He dropped me a line yesterday and then told me he’d touch base later. Yeah…I’m still bitter.

Game 1 of this series features Sandy Alcantara vs. Huascar Ynoa. For whatever reason, Alcantara has absolutely dominated the Braves for his career, holding them to a .488 OPS. Hopefully today’s the day that the BABIP gods shine down on the home team.

Bohm was OUT and MLB Players Voiced Concerns

It was nice to see many involved in MLB speak up about the debacle last night.

Shane Greene to the Braves? Maybe so…

For whatever reason, Shane Greene was in attendance last night at Truist Park and took photos with some fans. This led many to believe we’d see a signing today. Alas, it hasn’t happened yet, but our pal Drake Dodd, who has a few people “in the know”, dropped this tweet:

Drake does have a few insiders, so I believe his information is accurate. Let’s hope so.

Ronald Acuña Looked Over No More

When many “analysts” were putting out their best lists of players in MLB, I think the highest I saw Acuña rank was 6th. If the current sample rings true, those analysts will be eating crow served with a side of bat flips.

Tonight’s Lineup

Some changes here and they’re not too unexpected. Let tonight be the start of the 2021 Fish Fry Extravaganza!
