    San Diego Padres (45-56) @ Atlanta Braves (55-47) 7/25-7/28




    @





    San Diego Padres @ Atlanta Braves





    Friday, 7/25 7:35 PM

    Jesse Hahn, RHP (5-2, 2.21 ERA/2.80 FIP/2.94 xFIP)vs Alex Wood, LHP (4-6, 2.95 ERA/3.39 FIP/3.34 xFIP)



    Though he's only made seven starts, Hahn has emerged as arguably the Padres' top pitcher. Hahn is coming off a pair of two-inning starts in the Minors as part of a rest regime, with the Padres carefully monitoring the rookie's pitch count.


    Wood battled through rainy conditions in his last start to three-hit the Phillies in six strong innings. He demonstrated good command, issuing zero free passes, fanning eight and retiring the final 13 batters he faced.

    Saturday, 7/26 7:10 PM

    Odrisamer Despaigne, RHP (2-1, 1.31 ERA/3.67 FIP/4.39 xFIP)vs Julio Teheran, RHP (9-6, 2.64 ERA/3.44 FIP/3.61 xFIP)



    The Padres will give Despaigne one extra day of rest after he threw 123 pitches his last time as he came within four outs of the first no-hitter in club history. He's allowed two or fewer runs and gone six or more innings in all five of his starts.


    Teheran began his second half with the type of start that earned him his first All-Star nod. He fanned a career-high 11 and gave up one run in seven innings against Miami, his 15th start allowing two earned runs or fewer.

    Sunday, 7/27 5:05 PM

    Eric Stults, LHP (3-12, 5.00 ERA/5.20 FIP/4.34 xFIP)vs Mike Minor, LHP (3-6, 5.32 ERA/4.37 FIP/3.68 xFIP)



    Stults, who lost his National League worst 12th game of the year against the Cubs on Tuesday, will pitch on Sunday against a Braves team that he is 2-2 with a 2.48 ERA against over seven appearances.



    Minor's 2014 woes continued as he allowed double-digit hits for the fourth time in his past eight starts. The left-hander had previously given up 10 or more hits only twice in his first 92 career starts.

    Monday, 7/28 12:10 PM

    Ian Kennedy, RHP (8-9, 3.66 ERA/3.11 FIP/3.30 xFIP)vs Ervin Santana, RHP (9-6, 3.87 ERA/3.26 FIP/3.32 xFIP)



    Kennedy will look to advance his perfect 3-0 mark in July after going 5-9 during the first three months of the season. He's 2-0 with a 3.79 ERA in six career games against the Braves.



    Santana pitched into the eighth inning for the second time in his past four starts after making it that far only once in his first 15 starts. He's tossed six quality starts in his past seven outings.

    Man, we need a sweep. Thus far we're 3-4 in this homestand. Really pathetic. With the Nats facing the Reds @ Cinci (and they draw their best pitchers Simon/Cueto/Latos) we can really make up some ground here.

    We NEED to beat these guys like we should.

    Alright TLS get your OBP prowess back. Freeman you're not facing the Marlins now so you can go back to hitting.

    The key game is the Minor start, we REALLY need him to pick it up!

    Absolutely pitiful, this pitcher is good and that is no fluke but overall we need to make a deal to shake some things up or we may not even make the playoffs.

    I honestly don't think we are gonna make the playoffs. I feel like we only have a few players who play hard every single play and come to play every day and that's a big thing.

    Sadly I'm not sure missing the playoffs will even get Fredi fired. They will probably just say well we had a lot of pitching injuries.

    **** this team. They earned that. Whatever happens happens. No point trying to figure them out or hold expectations for them.

    Put TLS back in his 7th spot or lower in the order. For whatever reason, he just doesn't look good up in the order. It doesn't make sense, analytically, to put Simba in the 2 hole and to move TLS, a more suited #2 hitter, but Simba still posted a .286/.343/.330 .673 OPS. While the OPS is not impressive, mainly due to the lack of power, we all know Simba has pop in his bat so it's just a matter of time before he gets a hold of a couple of shots that will change that around.

    Point is..Simba is more patient in the 2 hole (who the **** knows why), he's more productive there (he's already got the most RBI's there), he's got a solid slash line of .273/.356/.416 .772 OPS with RISP so he can hold his own there.

    This B.J/TLS combo or TLS/B.J combo ain't doing jack ****. With B.J and Simba at least we got something as crazy as that sounds. B.J is a lost cause, he sucks. That's just flat out the truth...he just sucks a little less leading off so we'll just have to live with that. We got to get something from our #2 and TLS just doesn't look comfortable up there. He's got a ****in .405 wOBA in the 7th spot..lets just roll with that for a little bit.

    It's just one of those weird things in baseball where it makes sense (and is the right move) to have TLS hitting 2nd because of the type of hitter that he is but he's not picking it up there and we can't afford to wait weeks/months for him to do so. SSS with Simba but lets just roll with it. Got to score..got to win. 2.5 games back and counting.

    ^ I completely agree with you. I just hope Freeman gets hot because that's the only way we can compete.

    and same verse. Just pretend the #2 is the 7th TLS. That or can our 3/4/5/6 actually mash AT THE SAME TIME like they are suppose to?? That'd be really nice..

    Does Fredi not watch the games? How hard is it to notice that this lineup DOES NOT WORK!! I haven't watched since Monday and can still tell!

    Meh, who knows. It was a bit odd to see Fredi pull Simba out of the 2 hole where he was actually producing. Normally, SSS plays a factor with Fredi. It's just so ironic that when he uses SSS it's typically a poor idea but when he doesn't use it (in this case with TLS who, sabermetrically, makes the most sense at #2) it ends up being a poor idea.

    Love TLS's approach and discipline and he's not a poor hitter by any means. Hitting him 2nd makes all the sense. He just doesn't seem comfortable up there..he looks like he's pressing and being more aggressive.

    It certainly goes against the theory of Freeman providing him protection. TLS can certainly hit fastballs..which you would think he would get more hitting in front of Freeman. Just not doing anything with it.

    Like I said before, no point trying to figure them out. Just hope TLS can actually get comfortable in the #2 hole cause that will make things go over rather smoothly.

    The real thing though is...when the hell is our 3/4/5/6 going to get going? We don't need a productive 1/2 if those guys actually do what they can do. Alas, we are the Braves and no-one ever gets hot at the same time. Ever.

    wow at least you have something to say about FREDO, YOU RIGHT he tried befored and don't work , but this is FREDO , I think TLS is a better hitter when he got men on base, and bating 2 he never have men on base because BJ , SIMBA take more fast ball bating in from freeman and have better result .
