    i agree with that, but it'll be frustrating if they fail to make "productive" outs. for example, moving a man from 2nd to 3rd by grounding out to the right side of the infield. also you put more pressure on the defense by putting the ball in play. they'll probably also go into a lot of deep counts so that's good. and hit a ton of homers.

    side note: for anyone considering mlb.tv, i highly recommend it (if you are out of market of course, the blackout rules blow). i am a native georgian living in seattle and am a huge braves fan (i also follow the mariners but not nearly as closely). mlb.tv works almost perfectly for me.

    I'll take 1-0 0.00 and 2.00 WHIP. Reminds me of Max a couple years back.



    Explanation:

    I did SO BAD in Fantasy last year that I bought Baseball Digest because of Nate Silver. Guess I still haven't wrapped my fragile egg shell mind around it.

    Watching the Braves, that outfield is so young and so special, Reminds me of that great Valentine-Dawson-Chromartie outfield of the Expos back in the day.

    Enlighten me. The season is only 2 weeks old and it might help.

    Heading to my first game of the year tonight. Phils looking really shitty so far. But....DOLLAR DOG NIGHT!!! :slayer::slayer::slayer:

    Not gonna give up on the season seven games in, but it's tough for me to see how this ends well. Hoping for Ryne Sandberg to be promoted to manager next year (and for a new GM, while I'm asking).
