Open Thread, 8/23 Bravos vs. the Skates
Like CB, I have a sort of J-Hey injury hangover. It’s bugging me, and making me think it could also be bringing down his teammates. I feel a series loss acoming.
Which isn’t a big deal. Do need to get cranking and make a run at home field, though. In today’s news, Beachy went to the Dl, and we acquired Freddy Garcia. Sounds like he’ll play for the Gwinnettians and come up in September to spell the starters, basically the role Maholm was going to fill until Beachy went down.
I hope FW is seeking an outfielder. Marlon Byrd or Hunter Pence might be gettable and would be an upgrade, especially for the postseason and especially if Schafer doesn’t regain his first half form and if BJ continues the whiff parade.
We’ll see them both tonight: Schafer LF, J. Upton RF, Freeman, C. Johnson, McCann, Simmons, BJ, E. Johnson, Medlen.
