Open thread, 9/21, Braves vs. Dennis Lamps

Winner of the Adrian Devine look-a-like contest

Don’t panic — Jay Hey was scheduled to sit today. B-Mac, who’s struggled mightily this September, also gets a breather.

No rest for Freddie, who’s started 57 of the last 58 games. “I’m a first baseman and I’m 24 years old, I don’t think that’s a problem,” he told DOB.

Gotta love that.

And you gotta love the way Med Dog has been pitching. He may be pitching his way into a Game 1 start in the NLDS, when the line-up behind him is sure to be better than today’s:

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

    I am very nervous. Fredi has been dealt a bad hand. It’s a miracle the bravos are in the spot at the top of the division

  2. Comment regarding a Division Series line-up is most certainly correct, but this feast-or-famine offense will not cut it in the play-offs. Schafer is going to have to bat lead-off.

  3. Schafer has a .469 OPS since he came back from his injury in August. He appears to have regressed to his 2009-2012 version – I don’t want to see any playoff lineup with his name in it.

  4. Schafer was able to turn a bunt into a triple Friday, with a 2-base throwing error.
