    Hopefully a few days away allowed Riley to clear his head and watch his recent ABs compared to the ones from a month ago.
    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.

    Riley has been swinging at the same pitches and missing the same pitches during his entire MLB stint.

    The only thing different now is the luck faded.
    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

    yes. everyone hopes that their teams players reach the 1% and defy all odds. that said the Braves recent wave of top position prospects (Albies, Acuna, and Swanson) have all met or exceeded their potential, imo. Not everyone will hit and I think of the Braves position guys ranked in the top 50 of the last few years (and that includes current guys in Waters and Pache) that Riley is the one that has the highest bust chance.

    This Padres pitcher has a 30 grade name. Hopefully we beat the bricks off him

    The game hasn't even started and Chip with a glaring error.He said that the Braves are 6 games ahead of Nats. Not true. Nats have won already today and are 5.5 games back not 6. Their win game was over before Chip took to the booth.

    How are the Braves blessed with this umpire crew?? Dana Demuth behind the plate, and one of the Braves all time favs(hehe) Angel Hernandez at 1st, and Carlos Torres at 3rd.

    I know we criticize the umpires a lot (many times deserved), but as evidenced there, being the home plate ump is not an easy job

    Will this game replace/count as his scheduled game behind the plate tomorrow?? Or are we faced with Angel behind the plate for 2 games in a row.
