    Ozzie has been great.

    Darvish has been the best offensive weapon for the Braves. That balk (how it isn't always a balk with his weird motion, I don't know) and WP helped.

    How Tucker got that one out in these conditions, I do not know. Amazing. Taking it to Darvish!

    Tucker is some kind of strong. That HR was really impressive. Hard to send him to the bench; his bat seems legit.

    Keep in mind this offense is doing this with an ice cold Inciarte. Soon, this offense will be a legit 1-7 with a capable 8. What a change from recent years!

    Inciarte always seems to start cold. I don't get it, but I'm also not concerned.

    I thought we should have kept Kazmir over Sanchez. Shows how much I know about baseball

    Understatement honestly. The plays he has made today are amazing. Makes it look so simple. The play on Contreras in the first was incredible. We have a star in the making.

    Same. He won't keep this up but it's real nice to see.

    Another great win, the calendar so far has been brutal though, we've faced the Nats twice, Colorado (at Coors), Phillies and Cubs (at Coors). 13 games so far, 10 of them against teams that made the playoffs in 2017 and 3 against a much improve team. That makes our 8-5 record even more impressive.

    Tucker has been a big surprise obviously, he was on a 0-12 skid and hit that big homer against a top pitcher, still I want to se Acuņa Jr next monday, Tucker can split his time with Markakis, even though it won't be a platoon, Snitker can play the matchups and still give Tucker at bats.

    I also want to see Camargo with the team next monday, he's better than Culberson and have the same versatility on defense, being a switch hitter is also a plus, Camargo is an utility bench player anyway so bring him up and let him develop in that position.

    Jesse Biddle is having a great start in the minors so if Minter ends up with the closer role at some point Biddle could be placed on the roster as a lefty middle reliever.

    It's obviously early (not even 10% through the season), but it is hard not to feel hopeful about the long-term future.

    I kind of like Swanson in the 2 hole. I imagine he'll end up 6th, but him in front of Freeman is nice. Chase them with Acuņa, and that's not bad at all.

    If the Braves compete, it'll be with offense.

    The weather is the only thing that can stop Ozzie on defense.

    Newcomb did all he could. Can't take away anything negative.

    The Braves blew a 10-2 lead. I take back the praise I gave the bullpen. Jackson was bad, and Ramirez was worse.

    Freeman comes in and walks 2. 11-10 Cubs.

    Wow, if the Braves unravel and are solidly under .500 by June, we can look back at this game.
