Braves signed James Loney. There's your new 1B.

I knew a signing had to be done.

Peter Gammons already reported Braves veterans were saying there will be a fight tonight.

Good Ol' Pete, quick to put a juicy story out there.

I'm guessing Ruiz goes back to AAA for Loney tomorrow. Camargo is a switch hitter and can play anywhere on the infield. Ruiz struggles against LH and is limited to 3B. Ruiz could continue to learn 1B in a less intense setting at AAA.

Better yet, keep Ruiz up for 3B, play Loney at 1B, keep Peterson and Carmargo, and ship Bonifacio out.

That is best case scenario but I'm skeptical they'll ship out Bonifacio.

Neither will happen. James Loney has been assigned to AAA for the Braves to evaluate. Similar to Ryan Howard, if he shows well he'll be up and if not he'll be out. He was only hitting .200/.351/.222 at AAA for Detroit.

Just not fair. Freddie was on an unreal pace this year. 

Send Bautista a message tonight...

I think we need to pluck them 7 or 8 times to even the series

I suspect Ruiz will get to play a lot moving forward and Albies won't be far behind. Everybody knows our season just ended, so we might as well give the kids a chance.

There's also no reason to rush him back. He'll fight to get back quickly, but it's really in the best interest of the franchise to sit him.

Let's have someone just put a shot at Bautista's face. That would be good enough for me

I'm assuming the sports world is tuned in to this game to see what happens.
