    At first glance, didnít get the trade, I Just guess it might be Camargo's replacement? Adrianza Is coming back soon and he certainly deserves a spot on the bench. Arcia Is young but Is a bench player not a starter, so I hope nothing of value Is going to the brewers.

    Patrick Weigel and Chad Sobotka going to the Brewers, Sobotka Is not good and Weigel has lost his shine, so I Don't see anything of value here. I'm good.

    Arcia is a former top 10 overall prospect so I'm ok taking a chance on his talent. He's only 26. You never know if a change of scenery might unlock something. Sobotka is terrible and Weigel doesn't seem to be part of the teams plans so I'm ok with this trade.

    Tough to have 4 home runs but only 4 runs. Need some people to get on base

    but, when they do get people on base they can't get the runs. they just had the bases loaded with 1 out and only scored 1 run.

    It's pretty maddening so far. An 0-4 start isn't great.

    I'm not trying to panic yet, but if Ozzie doesn't get going the offense will have a hard time. I've always believed that he doesn't belong in the two hole, his skillset just doesn't fit a number two hitter, last year the offense was amazing with him hitting 5th, it's even more balanced. If I'm Snit I would go with the 2020 lineup as soon as today.

    AcuŮa RF
    Freeman 1B
    Ozuna LF
    D'arnaud C
    Albies 2B
    Swanson SS
    Riley 3B
    Pache CF

    The lineup Snit has used in the first 4 games is too right handed heavy, we have 5 straight RHH, even though we hit 4 homers yesterday the offense didn't look good.

    The rough start is continuing today. Got lucky to score with the bases loaded and now Fried struggling to throw strikes.

    If Snit doesn't want Freeman hitting 2nd then I would also consider Swanson there. His numbers last year were a lot better hitting lead off than in the 2 hole but he only had 84 PA's in the 2 hole.

    Paul Bryd just said on TV that Braves pitching has the highest BABIP against and also the lowest hard contact rate. That will even out soon enough.

    2 wins in a day, not bad! I agree that Swanson is good in the second spot in the order. Albies has good attitude with Acuna up there which is nice but he is pretty inconsistent in terms of getting good ABs (he still swings at too much).

    Ynoa looked great and so did Newcomb in the 9th. When he throws heat like that in the zone he is incredible

    Yes, Swanson will also be a good option, walks twice as much as Ozzie and the lineup will be more balanced.
