    In the past most of the posters think I am a bitch to deal with, just turning a new leaf. Almost all of them known me since 2003 or so.

    I can navigate the jungle but I am being like Progressive Insurance, navigate and make things simpler and trying to talk their language.

    You can check 247 if you like but I was even on before then. Same name.

    I see improvements.

    I think he can be at least a Jeff Blauser and that is not bad.

    Braves fans are all over DIRECTV on Twitter. I think I even saw @UNCBlue012 throwing insults at them.

    Craig is throwing harder now than he was when he came into league. He's down from his career high, but still throwing 97+ consistently.

    I think so. But not opposed to sending him down to work on shorter inning spurts in a pseudo Hader type roll eventually. Have him hitting 96 and see if a change of rolls calms him down. And No I am not saying he is equivalent to Hader.

    When Folty gets back the Braves will have 6 guys that have pitched well enough to be in the rotation. Soroka also is probably ready if healthy.



    I think the best 5 are Folty, Gaus, Soroka, Wright and one of Fried or Newk, with Julio showing he might not be cooked yet, but I’m not sure how they will decide honestly.

    How do you think it would work out if all 7 guys were on the major league team and you alternate Soroka/Fried/Newk/Wright as starters using a piggyback system?

    I'm just not sure if Newk is bullpen material. Maybe if you make him exclusively a guy that starts innings but that puts some handcuffs on your decision making. He can't be trusted to come in with runners on base IMO and hope his control is sharp immediately.

    Depending on camera/gun.

    ERA in Boston was not elite for what he is asking.

    And our closer has almost a near run better in ERA. Kimbrel is not elite and not what he asking for so stop it.

    I will drop the mic now.
