    When you throw meat balls, they tend to get hit like a howitzer

    I really don’t think Greene is very good. Martin and Melancon will be fine.

    It was just a perfect storm of ****ery tonight. It happens, just usually not against the worst team in the league. To be fair, as sketchy as our pen has been this year, we really have not had this happen too often this season. We have a pretty good record when leading after 7/8. Guess we were due. Baseball is weird.

    They have. The bad luck has been mind boggling.

    they are all decent but not great relievers who will help us

    based on the data before they joined the braves and what I've seen since they joined I will say imo martin > melancon > greene

    But all 3 fall in the category of decent useful but not great relievers

    I'd agree with the order, and say I'd expect ERAs around 3.3-3.5 for Martin, 3.8-4.0 for Melancon, and 4.2+ for Greene. The problem being that makes the best of those a roleplayer, not a vital cog.

    Like the ball that was hit past Charlie was a good pitch, He just slapped it the other way where Culberson wasn’t

    My only worry is Martin may still be hurt. They aren’t overly wild. Also has to be some human element to changing leagues and teams

    It remains an open question who our best relievers will be come September and October...could be guys like Webb and Sobotka...but there was little doubt we needed to add to the pool of available options...it would have been nice to get Vazquez but he wasnt available at a reasonable price

    It's actually sort of impressive just how many of the relievers we counted on in the off-season/brought in during the season have fallen on their faces.

    I am not blaming twit here. But he is using them very oddly to me. We are seeing guys being used in 4-5 and even more fun leads. Belvins. Weigel and others are not being utilized enough. Tomorrow basically we have Newk. Weigel. Tomlin. Blevins. I would tell the three stooges to stay at the hotel.

    Enscheff was pretty confident about the Braves winning the East even if they stayed pat (relatively).

    We're about to find out.

    Nats and Mets are comin'.

    It's getting overshadowed right now by The Struggles, but Snit being incapable of managing [s]a bullpen[/s] is hardly a new thing.
