In Christian scripture this situation is described thusly:
“So, because you are lukewarm and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:16
Yep, these Braves have certainly worked mediocre like PROFESSIONALS this year.
Kyle Muller started and went 5 on 75 pitches. The Panda pinch hit for him, but haven’t we seen this enough? Panda is DONE. Don’t stick a fork in him, send him to the funeral home. It seems like Muller should have gone another inning, but he still got the W because 2 rockets off of the Fresh Prince turning into outs. The offense should have scored more runs in light of the hits and walks, but you have to live with what you have to live with.
Luke Jackson gave up one run. Nobody else on either team did. So, that kind of stuff makes you lose 1 to nothing. The Mets went “bullpen game” and it worked for them.
FROM HERE: the semi and less than semi knowledgeable fan base will stop buying tickets if there is any semblance of a sale. However, there probably won’t be a BUY of any consequence either. Looking at pythags, if everybody plays to the expected wins from that same pythag in the east the rest of the way out, I think the Braves end up 1 game behind the Mets.
