Yeah they do

The nationals are about to catch the Phillies.  If the Braves sweep, the nats will be right there as the next team the Braves have to handle...

Yeah im guessing they will be our main competition.  Im honestly not worried about anyone in the NL except the Dodgers. I think we will win the east by a nice margin.

I got drunk at Harbor Docks many times lol

I had to drive that piece of **** trash truck across the street to dump the nasty refuse from the evening in our dumpsters.  I always looked at the outside deck in envy.  :lol:

Exactly, and he bites very often. He's really cooled off. Hopefully he'll get that bat going again, they sure could use it.

Yeah for a few games he seemed to finally be laying off of it but he is right back to swinging at it

They did the same to Acuna last year. They started throwing breaking balls down on him.  It worked for a while.  The problem with Acuna though is if he is looking for it he can golf it into the stands.  Acuna developed discipline for that pitch and learned to sit on it.  Its made him late on a few fast balls but it eliminated their reliance on the breaking ball to get him out...

You’re right, but it’s Nola. Everyone swings at it or takes it for a strike. It’s early though. The strike zone has been a bit inconsistent.

Yeah Nola definetly has that pitch down. Hopefully Riley sees it coming next go around

Dallas Keuchel doing what he's known for, getting outs and keeping the pitch count down. Only 33 pitches through 3.

I love what Gary Sheffield said about those types of pitches.  He said he wouldn't even swing at that junk.  He said he would make you a TWO PITCH pitcher.  He swung at only fastballs and I believe sliders.  Anything else he wouldn't fool with. He made you come TO HIM...
