I just realized we're last in the majors in runs. So much for that whole "We'll score more runs than last season simply by cutting down our strikeouts" thing.

Yep. Same thing folks like me and k26dp kept preaching all offseason about the strikeouts. Less strikeouts does not and never will equal more runs scored. Those two things have nothing to do with each other.

Monday 7:10 PM

Jorge De La Rosa, LHP, 7-5, 4.50

Julio Teheran, RHP, 8-6, 4.32

Tuesday 7:10

Chad Bettis, RHP, 5-4, 4.88

Mike Foltynewicz, RHP, 4-5, 6.06

Wednesday 7:10

Yohan Flande, LHP, 3-1, 3.94

Shelby Miller, RHP, 5-10, 2.50

I see a win tonight and losses the next two nights. Let me qualify the Wednesday game. I really see Shelby eventually getting a break. However, the Braves have been notoriously inept against young lefties we've not seen much of. I'm Afraid Shelby will have to wait another start.

I'm not so sure anyone said less strikeouts directly means more runs scored. Especially when a big chunk of your run production was traded.

The only problem I had with the Braves last year was their two-strike approach. I believe that is where a philosophy change needed to happen. I believe a team approach of trying to simply make contact with two strikes would have led to more runs this year, with the same personnel as last year.

Shelby is cursed

You know, I don't think Fredi is creative enough to think of this, but just for craps and giggles, wouldn't a manager just try to show Shelby he is trying to help him out by just simply holding him back one day maybe to change the alignment of the planets, so to speak? I know it's all just a hunch, but worth a try?

Mark Bowman seems to think Folty is learning despite the struggles. He pointed to his quotes after his last start that show he's starting to learn how the hitter thinks. He also mentions Folty "dialed it down against Miami and ramped it up against Chicago trying to find a happy medium". We'll see if he can get better results today.
