Braves offense is getting in gear, but Folty... he was real good in his last start. Today, he's lights out, so far through 3. I don't wanna jinx him.

Dansby Swanson's error costs the Braves their win streak.

I went to the new stadium last night for the first time and witnessed a complete blowout win by the Mets.
It was a good experience overall.
The stadium is small, or appears to be, but is nice, and seems simple. I like how open it is as far as walking around the lower concourse area by concession stands.
The biggest nightmare about the location of the stadium is what everybody has assumed....Traffic!!!

I highly doubt I will go back often like I use to at Turner Field. A couple of games a year at the new Stadium will be enough for me, not that my work schedule these days allows much free time.

Colon has been crap so far, 1-3 6.27 ERA. EOF and his 7.45 ERA needs to GTFO. Wisler and Blair still can't figure it out at the MLB level, both get rocked in the bigs. We should trade both before their value is none. Wisler with a 12.60 ERA with a little over 5 IP out of the pen.

Colon just isn't good. Wisler wasn't worth Kimbrel in the least bit.

Last night's game vs the Mets was postponed due to weather.

The Braves have sent Wisler back down to AAA, called up RP Sam Freeman. In nine relief appearances with Gwinnett, Freeman had a 0.87 ERA with eight strikeouts in 10 1/3 innings.

I just can't give Coppy another pass if our pitching (and team) continues to be trash going into next season. With how bad we look this seems like another throw-away season, three of these in a row is my limit with a front office.

The only reason we're even at 11 wins right now is because Freddie Freeman seems to be completing one of the 12 labors of Hercules in willing this terrible team around him to victories.

4-2 Cards in the 7th. They will get the sweep, all three of our starting pitchers in these series have been crap.

Hate to see Kemp strike out in the 10th after the Cards intentionally walk Freddie with 2 out.

Collmenter gives up the game winning 2 run HR in the 14th. Why not just stick with Motte??
