    I guess Jason's agent was a little off:

    #Braves’ Heyward will miss the rest of the regular season, per his agent, Victor Menocal. Availability for post-season to be determined.—

    J-Hey

    This would be my playoff lineup. Then had Jordan, Reed, or Bossman be defensive replacements.

    My only nit pick would probably be to have Chris Johnson 4th and move Gattis to 6th, but I know Fredi has been unwilling to do that all season.

    Eh Gattis is kinda hot right now. So I won't complain. And Johnson has no power. They'd probably if they bumped Gattis down put Mac at 4 Johnson 5 and Gattis 6. Johnson has no pop so I wouldn't bat him 4th. I don't necessarily believe in lineup roles. But Johnson should hit 2, 5 or 6 and that's about i.t

    That's a fail on my part, copied from my previous GDT post and forgot to change team name. Can a mod please update

    If the Braves win today, we should probably wish for the Nationals to win as well. That way, the Braves can celebrate on the field after a win tomorrow.

    This is the playoff lineup I would use unless Uggla starts to suck again. I hope he can stay on track.

    Anyone that's been at the park so far today has to think Fredi's going to need mental help - has probably looked a little like Jack Nicholson in "The Shining".

    Probably been whistling and talking to himself with a perma-grin on his face ever since writing #LeadoffMonster on that card this morning.

    The FO that needlessly promoted him early knew what they were doing and are paid to do this. We aren't, so we can't know more than them. Correction....they used to be paid to do this..

    I also don't see the reasoning behind signing DK over CK, and I'm going to assume the Braves can only afford one of them. Like Bumgarner, DK would be an improvement in the rotation, but it seems like CK would be a bigger improvement in the BP.

    In the playoffs I'd still probably switch McCann with Gattis.

    I know it's a L-R-L thing, but McCann has a better chance of not striking out and making contact than Gattis who has been all or nothing lately.
    Forever Fredi

    Great to see Heyward back in there. This is the lineup that needs to carry us through the postseason.

    This gives us some hope in the playoffs now. I love that lineup minus Uggla.

    That's my take for sure. I don't want to cheer for the Nats but I'd hate to win it by them losing tonight. That would be as boring as it gets and a real downer, IMO.
