    This level of patience at his age is truly rare. I'm getting young bonds vibes from him.

    I understand it’s a school night but move people from other sections to behind home plate at least. I’ve been at a high school basketball All-Star game and they moved people from the upper deck to behind the goals in the lower deck for tv.

    I feel like Acuna is the only player this board universal agrees is as good as he actually is

    I've never been more sold on a Braves prospect in a long time with Acuna. He's stupid good.

    Remember that time we chuckled at calling Julio an ace line degrom, and then Julio went out and made degrom his bitch?

    The umpire behind the plate tonight did a fantastic job for both sides. His strikes were actually strikes.

    Braves are second but their +15 run diff. is best in the division so far. Nats are second at +11 JFYI.

    This kinda gets me. I'm not the most stat-inclined, but the only thing keeping Venters in the big leagues right now is the success he had in the early-2010s as a key part of an awesome 7-8-9 trifecta. He's not getting LHH out (and yes, it's a small sample size) and that's his only value at this point in his career. He no longer sports a high K-rate and his BB-rate (from 2018) basically sits around his career average. So DL him for those who are faint of heart, but I'm not counting on him at all (and didn't coming into the season).

    Remember that time that Bobby Bouche showed up at halftime and led the Muscats to win the Bourbon Bowl?

    He is a lefty specialist at this point as his numbers last year with us showed. But he still held lefties to a 1.69 ERA and .111 batting average with us last year. Batters only hit .208 on the season against him last year too. So nothing you assert citing his small sample thus far proves any of that has changed. Time will tell if it has or not.

    He should be. But he has a decent amount of doubters right now

    Major kudos to the Braves bats tonight. Their approach against deGrom was about as good as it could be.

    Josh Dongalson's hr had an exit velocity of 109.3. Dude just hits lasers and his eye is redongulous. The trio is doing some work.

    there is just so much behind those seats in the club areas, it makes people want to stay there instead of being in the seat a lot of the times

    times i have been down there, it happened from time to time.

    go get a plate of some catered food and get a drink and then go grab something else etc and you haven't been in your seat for 2 innings and what not

    Absolutely. They’re extremely hard workers and play the game the right way. Players like Keon Broxton and Dominic Smith could learn a thing or two from them.

    Is it absolutely crazy to think that Acuna could be better than Trout?

    Was SJ right all along?

    So many good things offensively during the first 15 games of the year but probably my favorite is to imagine Albies as a speedy leadoff guy with pop that gets on base at a 40% clip and of course plays fantastic defense. Better version of Furcal.
