Snitker isn't gonna hit the pitcher 8th!! Remember we did that about 10 games last year and it worked great and Snitker said he didn't like it so he stopped doing it. I wish we weren't so dead set on Donaldson hitting 2nd because then we could have so many different options. I'd roll with this one if we could get Donaldson out of the 2 spot.

  1. Swanson
  2. Acuna
  3. Freeman
  4. Donaldson
  5. Albies
  6. Markakis
  7. Catcher
  8. Inciarte
  9. Pitcher

I'd like to go back to Acuna leading off,  Swanson second. 

Either way is fine. Just figured with Swanson 1st and the way he's getting on base you give Acuna those RBI chances.

Catcher Raffy Lopez has cleared waivers and been assigned to Gwinnett. He's the plan incase something happens to Flowers or McCann.

Gausman activated, Carle sent to AAA.

You could see it on his face last night on the mound, like he new it was coming.

The Twins DFA'd Tyler Austin today. I would love to see the Braves take a flier on him and see what Kevin Seitzer can do with him. He was once regarded as a big time prospect with the Yankees.

First 6 games are gonna say alot about our team.

Went 3-3, currently sit at 7-4. The Phillies aren't as unbeatable as some of us thought.  The Mets started out strong last year.  Our bullpen has struggled some,  but the bats have been hot as of late and the youngsters are contributing well.  The Marlins are rebuilding and have some good pieces.  The Nats are still trying to put things together in the post-Harper era. 

 

I have a feeling the East is going to be great baseball this season and may come down to the wire again.

I think our pen could get better. I don't really see them getting much worse because we do have talent. Talent alone will give us stretches like we had in Colorado, but there are inconsistencies.
