Another run given up by Tyler Flowers!! But someone on Twitter told me about an hour ago that Flowers was an amazing defensive catcher and had 11 defensive runs saved and that I was an idiot for wanting the Braves to get rid of him!!

I'd be pissed but slightly less pissed if we didn't give him a 5 run lead to work with.

It's just not acceptable, ever.

That’s still a pretty good lineup out there

I get that man I really do but it also goes back to just a few hours ago and me saying we need pitching and basically being told I was over reacting.

This team has been carried by the office for over a month now eventually the all fence will get cold then what?

I would have preferred we kept Suzuki. Have always been a big fan of his

I still don't understand signing Flowers to an extension in the middle of last year. Why couldn't they have waited until the winter to see how things went?

Can't stand him. Wish he was gone. I guess he is good at framing pitches, calling games, something, but I don't really see his value

How long til we have a catcher ready to come up from the minors? Other than going to a couple Rome Braves games per year i dont follow the minor leaguers that much.

Contreras is likely another year or 2 away. 

We just drafted a catcher with our 1st round pick who's projected to get here in 3 years I believe.

Isnt Contreras mainly just a defensive catcher with little offense? Or am i thinking of someone else?

You might be thinking of Jackson.

Good. Not big on catchers that can't hit

Well, that escalated from 6-1 quickly. 

I'll add a few quick things :

1. Yes, our starting pitching better get it together quickly because even the best offenses struggle in the playoffs. 

2. Dont like blowing that huge lead. 

3. Get to see Kimbrel... Bleh. 

4. A comeback would be nice - can't count these guys out late. 

5. Contreras can go sit and spin. 

6. We scored 7 runs... Gotta win those layups. 

7. I like Wilson, but he needs more time and patience from the Braves. 

8. I hate the Cubs. 

9. Plenty of advanced stats said Riley was due for a painful regression based on his hitting profile... They weren't wrong. 

10. I really hate the Cubs.

Nothing says 2019 Atlanta Braves baseball like a 9-7 game in the top of the 8th.

Im hoping to see Kimbrel walk a guy or two and then Acuna time up that fastball and take him deep
