  1. All ready the league leader in strike-outs, Rome pitcher Bruce Zimmerman struck-out 11 in 6.1 innings of work. I think its time for a move up for Mr Zimmerman.
  2. Sorry if posted earlier but found this while searching for Acuna update. Former Brave Kris Medlin is calling it a career by announcing his retirement while in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization. He got one start for the big league club this year that didn't go well. He was back down at AAA when he decided it was time. Really liked him, I wish him well in his post professional baseball life. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2018/05/kris-medlen-retires.html
  3. Touki Toussaint, of the Mississippi Braves, is the league leader in strike-outs at AA level. Bruce Zimmerman, of the Rome Braves, is the league leader in strike-outs at A level.
  4. Looks like they chose the right profession then because apparently it is one of few professions in America where being awful at your job has no ramifications. These fellas seem ready for the majors....
  5. Yikes!! What can help stop a FIRE........rain. The FIRE frogs are finding that out with yet another rain delay. They have played only 2 days out of past 8 days and played only 3 games (1 double header) out of a possible 10 games. The Rome Braves could be so lucky.....they have lost the last 2 games by a score of 32 to 3.
  6. As much as I would like to see him in Atl, he's only had 50 at bats at AAA. We are winning so why rush. We have a young 3B (Camargo) who needs ABs before being relegated to the Super-Sub/Utility spot and a veteran (Flaherty) who we need to keep fresh for late season run or move him to someone desperate for utility player. Moving Bautista helps and I would not be surprised to see him later in the season....actually will be shocked of we don't see him sometime this season.
  7. Yeah good move by AA and the staff. Liked the interview, it seemed that he shared an honest appraisal and account off what went on; well said and thought out. I like the fact that he said they feel that Camargo needs a legit shot. He may not be the long term answer at 3B but it will give him some ABs that will help down the road. Hopefully though he can generate some excitement with this opportunity. Time will tell.
  8. It so does! He will not be able to walk comfortably for a long while.
  9. Man, I feel for the guy. He has had a tough stretch in life the past few months. I hope the best for him. Good kid!
  10. I agree. I wouldn't mortgage that much of the future especially when Riley is so close to making it to ATL. They (Braves administrators) have said they wanted to build an organization that will compete year after year, not necessarily one and done, I hope they keep to that.
  11. OF Ezequiel Carrera was released by the Braves. He was just .146/.228/.220 for Gwinnett. Cooler story out of Gwinnett. Four pitchers for Gwinnett combined to strikeout 17 batters last night....Miguel Socolovich, Luke Jackson, Evan Phillips and Jason Hursh limited Columbus Clippers to just 2 hits, walked just 1 and stuck out 17 to win 6-0. Evan Phillips struck out all 6 batters he faced in his 2 innings of work. https://www.talkingchop.com/
  12. Somewhere Gabe Kapler is telling someone “See, this managerial stuff is hard”
  13. Yeah, you're right. My take is he has a lot of strike outs & walks so he must have good stuff, just not the command yet. Hopefully just being 19, he will develop command over time. It appears Bacon who is slightly older has better command but maybe not quite the stuff. Would be nice if these 2 really put it together to add depth to pitching in minor leagues as we start looking at trading some away.
  14. Two high round draft picks from 2017, 21 y/o Troy Bacon (Rd 4) & 19 y/o Freddy Tarnok (Rd 3) are quietly having a good start to the season. Troy Bacon, High-A ball, 12.0 IP, 1 ER, 12 s/o, 2 bb with era 0.75 and Freddy Tarnok 15.0 IP, 1 ER, 22 s/o 10 bb and era 0.65. Both seem to be doing good out of the bullpen
  15. Thoroughly enjoy these pieces K2!
