Open thread, 8/10, Braves vs. the Gallaghers

Would it surprise you to learn that melon-smashing “comic” Gallagher hails from northern Florida? Didn’t think so. (I conducted a memorable interview with Gallagher about 10 years ago. He is not a pleasant man.)

All smiles on the Braves front as they attempt to tie their biggest winning streak since moving south. CD and I were at the game last night and when I got home I turned on ESPN expecting to see Braves highlights leading the show. How silly of me — there were NFL exhibition games to dissect, with analysis from humorless turd Mark Schelreth. Sometimes I fucking hate the NFL.

Brandon Beachy deserved top billing last night, coasting through 8 innings without breaking a sweat. Granted, the Marlins line-up doesn’t offer much challenge, but Beachy’s dominance was just the latest positive sign for a team that now boasts baseball’s best record.

The bench gets a boost tonight, with Schafer coming up and Constanza going down. Laird will be back Sunday.

McCann gets the night off due to sore knees but DOB says it’s not a concern. The line-up:

Heyward 9, JUpton 7, Freeman 3, Gattis 2, CJohnson 5, Uggla 4, BUpton 8, Simmons 6, Wood 1

    Hadn’t had a Frediot sighting in a while. You simply cannot let Janish bat there. I don’t care if Gattis has to play SS.

    FG is like that brain damaged death row inmate who wanted to save some of his last meal to eat later.

    I’m just glad that Walden didn’t break his hand.
