    His last start was very impressive. 7 shut out innings and 9 K's.

    I said I think ATL will, not that I would. I actually think it is about 50/50. I mean, Riley is a high K guy. In 277 ABs in AA he has 78 SOs. Thatís over 28%. That didnít keep him from getting promoted. And Alex A has talked about him being a possible addition, so I think it is on their minds. Aside from the SOs, Riley hits and gets on base. And he fits the youth movement. Getting time in the Majors this year helps prepare him to start next year; same as Albies last year.

    I am simply trying to predict what I think will happen. That includes at least one RP being added and Riley getting some time in the Majors. I think those are the biggest changes to look at for this year down the stretch.

    Oh yes, I know that Riley is on their mind and I bet he'll be up when rosters expands and minor league ball ends. I think there's an issue with prospect who have contact issues, those guys can succeed even with those problems in the minors but tend to struggle (at first) in the majors. I still think the Braves will get another infielder to improve the bench and rotate Camargo. I think we need that boost in the lineup to get back in the playoffs.
