    Carrasco supposed to start bullpen sessions. Uggh on the friggin' bunting.

    fuck ragging on the decision to bunt--how about our "potent offense" hit the fucking ball during the game and take the decision out of the manager's hands come crunch time...what an excellent outing by Civale wasted because of our anemic offense that was on display last night

    I totally get that but what pisses me off is that it looks like Tito was playing for a tie and then they'd go to extra innings. Just what they need, to beat up the bullpen in the first game of series when their biggest series of the year is coming up this weekend.

    I can see your point, and I understand the offense can't be "on" every single night, but jeezus, our lineup should be able to manufacture at least a run or two during the course of nine innings!

    They are tied for the lead in the majors having been shut out 10 times.

    And when it is “successful” it helps you score 1 run. Makes it so much harder for a big inning.

    This is THE thing for me about bunting. And then, figure in taking it to extras and using your bullpen, like Laley also said. Runner on second and no outs with Naquin up......I’m taking my chances of him moving the runner without bunting. And poor, Reyes......left with runner on third, 2 outs. It was a smh game.

    man, he is really struggling--maybe trying too hard to impress his new teammates? still want him on my side in a brawl, though...damn is he a monster!

    I thought he put a good swing on that final pitch....I gotta give credit to the pitcher. 1 inch lower and I believe Reyes was the hero

    shoulda, woulda, coulda--we all know it's a game of inches, and that's what separates the good from the great. I'm not saying it's easy, cause if it were, everybody would be doing it--all I'm saying is maybe he's putting too much pressure on himself to be "that guy", and when he starts to relax and do what he does, he may just be.

    I get it....just think that particular out by Reyes, I’m giving the pitcher credit

    Good chance of delay or postponement for tonight’s game.

    During this long rain delay I hear that Tito is in his office eating bundt cake

    I agree they need to score a damn run. Doesn’t make the decision to bunt a good one. You seem to be one of the few who is ok with it...but I’ll ask, how many times under Tito have we bunted to the benefit of the team? It’s worked out like 1-2 times a season and backfired that many tenfold...if not more. 

    The times we get lucky with that decision is when we get a single and a HR to follow and still score 3 runs. Where the bunt didn’t do shit to help, but it at least didn’t kill the in ing

    Game postponed 

    Double header tommorow

    I wonder how this will change the rotation for the Minnesota series.

    I read last night that Game 2 will be bullpen so that Clevinger gets the Twins.

    Puig prevents a run with his arm in the 2nd.

    Solid.

    Braves doing their part. Plesac playing with fire so far, a lot of hits 

    Wed, Aug 7, 2019 2:25 PM

    How about we get some runs? (Of course, we need to start that by getting some HITS!)

    Geez!
