Well, Brett basically didn’t make contact with the ball and swung at everything and missed – I mean, seriously, I think your average football player woulda had better luck. and he was on the tightest leash like evah, so he gone. I’m actually surprised he wasn’t released, but youneverknow. It’s the usual – he needs steady ABs – stuff and fact is that Chris Carter is a born DH and Carlos Pena is a decent first baseman, so once AGAIN, Brett couldn’t hit ML pitching.

Yes, I know that 26 AB is small sample size, but it’s not like he hit frozen ropes all ovah the place that Gold Glove catches got made on.

Brandon Laird is a FINE 3rd base glove and Matt Dominguez is hitting like he did in the minors, which is to say, not a lot. Yes, I know, small sample size.

Should I mention that Chris Johnson is hitting .435, has 7 multi hit games, and playing a great 3rd/1st base? For the Braves, that is? Yes, I know, small sample size.

I was SO lookin forward to seeing Michael Bourn again, but he got his finger sliced up yesterday when it got spiked, and he’s on the DL. Rats.

I liked the newsfeed on MLB – the first headline says – Peacock learns from number 1 starter Bud Norris. The next headline – Bud Norris Gets Knocked Out In The First Inning.

It is to laugh.

The team is 4-11, on a nice 5 game losing steak, and is headed toward the top of the suckage heap. They dumped Xavier Cedeno, who, unike Edgar Gonzalez, is almost certainly going to pass throu waivers, and now they are down to one lefty, Wesley Wright. I had praised Bedard’s awesomeness in long relief, so I won’t jinx the 2 guys who are now long relievers.

Lucas Harrell has had 2 very good starts, but no W to show for it, and 1 really bad 8 runs given up start. He faces ex-stro, the Ol WB. Not that there’s gonna be a crowd, even for fireworks night.
