    I wonder if Tucker would be a good pinch hitter. Not everyone is built to do it. The recently signed Braves look to have a knack for it.

Can he play 3B at all?
    Well he's a left handed defender lol, he'll improve our bench, we won't need to carry a third catcher by them because he will be our best bat off the bench. I just keep thinking, why we have Culberson on the roster? I hope that when Camargo returns he'll be sent to AAA.

    what a win!

    15 runs 19 hits for the braves.

    I got to listen to a little bit of the game around when Snitker and even the radio guys were upset about the situation and it seemed like the team really cranked it up at Snitker got the boot.

    RIP Gene Wilder

    I know I'm getting greedy but we should have swept them, if only Bourjos went head first.

    I agree but nothing we can do now. Iím glad to see Swanson and guys like Tucker, McCarthy, and Flaherty start off well.

    What a game yesterday. Velasquez just didn't know what hit him. Glad to see us putting up runs.

    I think we'll have a solid offense once Acuna gets up here. He will hopefully (eventually) fill that 4 hole and move Markakis to the 5th spot. Camargo should also help, though Flaherty has somehow been hitting the ball all over the place so far lol.

    Yeah it's ridiculous looking at the chart of pitches Freeman has seen so far lol. I'm guessing it won't be that drastic when we go against other teams (Kapler seems to be a pretty extreme manager right now). But in any case, it will definitely protect Freddie some more.
