    GDT: 4/8 Tehearn Takes on Coors

    I'll be working most of today, so I wanted to get a headstart on the thread for tonight's game!

    If I can't get to it, someone please post the lineup when it's up.

    As terrifying as playing at Coors can be, I'm thrilled about the opportunity to see Acuna hit there. This could be a really fun, and stressful, series.

    He is going to get it going. He is actually hitting lasers but they are not in the air, grounders and line drives. He is locked in. Not worried about him.

    When we see people swing and miss a lot I worry. But it seems Donald and Ronald strikeouts are looking mostly, guessing wrong or an expanded zone.

    Again, I am not worrying, they will both turn it around.

    I'm not worried either. He looks very sharp at the plate. Maybe pressing a little, but that's understandable.

    It appears that the weather is not going to cooperate. Looking at TWC, they are calling for 80% chance of rain/snow in Zip code 30294 which I think is Coors Field location. Regardless, Denver in general is looking at rain/snow.

    There's a high chance for said precipitation but it will be very hit and miss and very light/drizzly... Unless something way unexpected happens, the game should get in pretty easy.

    Everything I've seen looks fine for tonight and tomorrow (and relatively warm considering what it's usually like when we make our annual early season Colorado trip). Wednesday looks like a total mess, though. I don't think there's a chance at playing on Wednesday with the current forecast.

    Yeah, Wednesday looks kinda nasty but things do start to calm down by evening so there's at least a little bit of a chance... doesn't look great, though.

    100% correct.

    JD has hit 3 of the 4 hardest hit balls by all Braves so far this year. He has the highest average exit velocity of any Braves with more than 3 balls in play.

    The issue is he has only hit 25% of his balls in the air. Expect that to change, hopefully in Colorado.

    Acuna isn't hitting the ball quite like JD, but his .087 BABIP is laughably absurd. He still has more BBs than Ks. Acuna will also be just fine.
    I think he (Teheran) finishes with a FIP ~3.3. -CrazyTrain 3/25/2019

    Gausman had a bad walk ratio for us -CrazyTrain 11/20/2018
    BB/9 with Braves: 2.72

    Fried, Newk and a couple other guys for Bumgarner and give him a pay day for 6ish years -CrazyTrain 10/15/18

    Maybe Albies can help Donaldson with his launch angle.

    This may be out-thinking it, but I do wonder sometimes if it would be smart to use our pitching depth to skip starts and avoid matchups that appear disadvantageous on paper. Like skipping Julio and his FB% on trips to Colorado or Cincy. Or maybe skipping a lefty when we are facing a team capable of stacking righties against us. At some point that would probably begin to abuse our minor league options and 10 day DL schemes, but I have wondered if a strategy like that could be effective.

    The MLB schedulemakers remain an effing joke - why we're going there in early April and they're coming here in two weeks is still unexplainable. We're already going to be in Ohio, so it's not like we'd be going across the country for three games.

    Early April games in Denver never have more than a 50-50 chance of being completed.
    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.
