Open thread, 8/16, Braves vs. Ozzie Smiths
It’s been a month since the Braves lost a series (July 17-19 to the Giants) and that probably merits an asterisk since their best player is a massive fraud.
Keep it rolling, boys, because the schedule’s about to get more difficult. The first-place Dodgers are in town over the weekend, then it’s off to D.C. before traveling to San Fran for a four-game set with the Melky-less Giants.
Meanwhile, if you’ve never seen the Wizard’s play against the Braves from April 20, 1978, do yourself a favor and watch.
