Bryce Elder takes on Kris Bubic in today’s afternoon matchup. Bubic relies on a threesome of off speed pitches to get hitters out and Elder does the same. Even their % of FB thrown match up pretty well. In 12.1 innings, Elder has yet to give up a run. Admittedly, I’ve been harsh on Elder. I’ve never really understood how he gets hitters out, but looking at Fangraphs, I notice they’re grading his slider and cutter above average and I’ll gladly eat that full serving of crow if he can keep that up and stay in the rotation.
While I understand that Bubic is a LHP, it still hurts to see Sam Hilliard on the bench, but glad to see Eli White get another opportunity to show something.
And just for fun…
12 and 4 sure has a nice ring to it. Get it, boys.
anyone have info on rain dely?
I’m seeing an estimate of 5:45 Central.
thanks, this bar is quiet today.
Braves are already at 4 balls in play hit above 100 MPH:
Marcell Ozuna, today’s Designated Striker Outer.
A friend asked me who’s batting after him. I answered “generally speaking, the other team “
It’s April 14th, 2024, Marcell Ozuna is 0 for 19 with 19 strikeouts on the year. The #Braves are winning 11-0 in the 8th. Ozuna, sitting at 0-4 on the day, comes to the plate facing a position player, hits a HR and Snitker rewards him with another 2 weeks of starts.
We could be winning the last game of the World Series by 68 runs in the ninth, and I’ll still be frustrated if he comes to the plate.
Ozuna. Where rallies go to die.
I hope when Harris and D’Arnaud come back, Ozuna is on the bench permanently. We have a great potential dual platoon of D’Arnaud/Rosario at DH and Pillar/Hilliard in LF. Maybe eventually replace Pillar with White or Wall.
Remember how Ozuna had to go on every bus trip in the Spring? Maybe Snit is just making him play because it is 45 degrees.
Am I the only one that’s been horribly distracted by the shaky/bouncy main camera in KC? Has the wind been crazy or something?
Mike, yes!! that was crazy, almost the whole game that poor camera guy was getting battered.
