Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

I guess that was his first start ? He sounds like a keeper .............. come on down to Hot Lanta tonight, you get an early game, I have no idea who we are pitching but should be a good series. If Pads can get to our relievers then that's what they need to do, we have been awful out of the pen so far so in some cases the starters have stayed in too long and that has also hurt us

Looks like SD will go with LHP Nick the Vicious smile) ........... Braves will start RHP Soroka who has not been very good lately

Remember I mentioned our rookie Paddack? Today we got a glimpse. Facing Mariners’ Felix Hernandez on the opposing mound and the hottest set of bats in baseball at the moment, you’d think he’d have butterflies. Well, he did, A walk, a hit, a hit batter and he was in deep stuff in the 1st inning. He sucked it up and gained command, his mid 90’s fastball painting the corners with high movement mixed with a befuddling curve, walking off the mound in the 7th inning to a standing O from the fans and his teammates with that hit the only one as well as that walk, retiring the next 10 consecutive batters with 7 k’s mixed in.
After the game, Hernandez, a Cy Young winner and perennial all star had one word, “Impressive”. He made one mistake in the 1st himself, and hung one up in the eyes of Kinsler that promptly left the yard. That was it for scoring. Paddack’s glove has Relentless stitched on it. He was all of that. 1-0 Padres, a one-hitter and the kid’s 1st win. There will be plenty more, but this was a gem!
We’re having fun.

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

Well,
Nic the Vicious pitched great, but that bunt that turned into a little league triple was not the best play. Losing Tatis to his splits  routine gave us a ss with no clue.
Play ball?

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

Nick was really good and tonight you have the Paddack guy going vs Julio Teheran, could be a good matchup unless Julio starts serving up some HR pitches as he was prone to do last year. I am thankful we don't have to face Tatis

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

Paddack was as advertised, just some great locations he hit and Reyes killed us

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

You got us back tonight.
Reyes is a big strong one, I think 6’6, 235. That rf dinger was pure power. Low and away, he opposite fielded it like a champ. Now if he can just do that consistently... Pitchers will be punished. They’ll learn that pitch for a fly out will carry.
Good games, great crowd there.

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

The young arms are tired, our ss is still on dl, the hitters aren’t and its been fun.
The bright spot is Franmil Reyes, who has been parking some and is becoming a good batter.

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

I saw where Paddack had a very good game Monday, so did Soroka at SF but they got to our bullpen last night and walked off thanks to crappy pitching by Luke Jackson. Bravos did go get another reliever to help but right now the pen is our Achilles heal

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

Welcome to the big leagues Austin Riley. Braves brought him up last week or so and he had a 3 run dinger last night at SF. He has 30 AB so far, hitting .367 with 11 hits, (1) 2B and (4) HRs. But also 10 SO which is too high. He plays 3B naturally but has subbed out in LF in most games .............. one more with SF this afternoon, would like to have the 3-1 split

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

Wow, every now and then you get a laugher. By the time the Friars had finished pounding the Blue Jays pitching staff into a pulp, the Toronto catcher had taken the mound. 7 dingers in a 19-4 rout. They even gave up the dh to keep the reliever Maton in and he got his first hit. 5 straight and keeping pace with the Dodgers, though I doubt they’ll catch them, or match up with them yet. Quantrill got his first win with a solid 7 just 60 miles from where he grew up. His father pitched 6 seasons for Toronto. Now if we could get that SS back with a good hammy. Our $30M 3rd baseman is playing SS and doing the best he can, and better than most, but it’s not where he belongs and it shows.

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

just wanted you to know that I'm voting the 5 times a day limit, but I only have two Braves outfielders to vote for since Inciarte is out of the picture ............... that extra 5 votes per day is going to Franmil due to the way he torched our pitching ...... keep voting, it could make a difference down the stretch

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

Thanks for the support. Hit the skids lately with the kids making rookie mistakes and hitters in slumps. Young arms getting tired, expected, but still a letdown when they all hit at once. It’s a long season.

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

Wow. Tired arms, thin air, a huge outfield, and sluggers galore. The Friars locked horns with the Rockies for a 4 game set and earned a split. After the dust cleared, a 90 year record set by the Dodgers and Phillies at 88 for total runs in a series was blasted with the teams totting up 92. ERA’s and individual stats soared. Hunter Renfroe hit 5 homers in the last two games. The game yesterday culminated with Stanton, a Padres starter who’d pitched the day before, coming in to pinch hit with the bases loaded and 2 outs in the 9th. The Rockies Manager had walked 2 intentionally with a man on 3rd to get to the pitcher’s spot, but the Pads’ manager had a better one. He can hit pretty good for a pitcher, a 270 average, and the Rockies closer was trying to hit the corners. Stanton was taking all the way and drew a full count walk to force in the winning run at 13-12 putting the finish on a come from behind rally. “ I can’t catch up to that 98 mph fastball, so I wasn’t going to swing at one” he quipped.

Wild and crazy bb!
Nice streak the Braves have going!

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

If you get a chance to watch a Padres game broadcast, do. Fernando Tatis is exceeding all expectations. At 20 years of age, some are already calling him the best player in baseball. He does things no one thinks possible with his speed and daring on base. He’s hitting pretty good too. His rookie stats as a 20 year old put him in some rarefied company. Only 13 players have better stats in their year of 20 in the history of the game, and they're all in the HOF, and most already had a season or two in.
Our rookie slugger Franmil Reyes had another 2 homer game last night and is up to 24. I’d like to see him in the dinger contest. Don’t pitch him low and away, he hits those out too.
