Braves have Monday off so series starts Tuesday. Phillies at home versus LAD. Mets at home versus Nats 

Game 1: Smyly vs Gray at 6:20p CT

Game 2: Touki vs Miley at 6:20p CT

Game 3: Muller vs Gutierrez at 4:10 CT

 Wonder what is up with the weird start time on Thursday.

Both the Reds and Braves are 7-3 over the last 10. Reds got cooled off a little last night with a 9-3 loss to those pesky Guardians. Nonetheless its two of the hottest teams going at it. Braves haven't seen Gray since 2019, Reds haven't faced Smyly since 2019. 

Votto is on fire. Since the ASG hes hitting .316/.411/.810 with 12 HR. He only hit 11 HR in the entire first half.

Had a feeling Greene was going because Snitker hasn't used him in almost 2 weeks. When Snitker, a loyal to the players guy like Bobby, moves away from you that bad news for you. It didn't work out but it was a minimal risk and everyone though it was a good risk to take. Greene will have to take a minors deal next season and show his loss of stuff was simply because he missed Spring and started late.

For sure. I honestly don't think they ever really wanted him back, but the dismal performance by the 'pen to start the season necessitated it. His usage in the playoffs was pretty telling, as he only appeared in 6 games, 3 of which were blowouts, and two were in the middle innings of the last 2 LCS games.

Ugh... hopefully we don't go back to pitching Minter EVERY GAME as he walks two batters that the next reliever gives up 4 runs on. Our BP immediately got better once Minter was gone and DickRod was acquired.

He regained some confidence in AAA. With Minter its just a matter of hes still better than Greene right now. Even if its the Minter with a 4.50 ERA thats better than Shane Greene in 2021. Hopefully he got something tweaked in AAA thats got him on track

The word out there was teams balked at him because the data showed his stuff was declining. Thats why he sit out for so long and then settled for $1M anyway. The data appeared correct.

Hopefully Minter can show us he is an MLB guy and not an AAAA guy. He looked elite in AAA, but I wanna see it up here. He's got the stuff and could really help the pen. 

The biggest problem with him is that he is so inconsistent.... Like he looked fantastic in 2018 and then in 2019 he totally shut the bed... Then 2020 even in the abbreviated season he was **** near unhittable....but then this year while he started off pretty good it just went off of the rails again.

So we know that he has the ability because we have seen it at the major league level he just needs to find Major League consistency.

Which is a theme for pretty much all of the young pitchers.

After that playoff start in the NLCS I guarantee there were 29 GMs who would have made a trade for Minter in a heartbeat. If he's on he can be great.

Yep. I'm hoping this latest AAA stint is going to get him back on track
