Open thread, 4/13, Braves vs. Louie Gohmerts

Gohmert is almost always wrong, as in my post yesterday excoriating Fredi for playing Uggla and batting B.J. second,

Uggla’s on the pine today, along with the struggling Chris Johnson as Fredi deploys a Bobby-esque Sunday line-up:

1. Heyward rf 2. BUpton cf 3 Freeman 1b 4 JUpton lf 5 Simmons ss 6. Laird C 7 Pena 3b 8.Pastornicky 2b 9 Harang P

Gohmert, who once claimed that caribou enjoy the warmth of an oil pipeline, is a U.S. congressman from Texas.



  1. I don’t think I’d use Kimbrel, Carpenter or Walden today unless it’s a 15-innng game.They’ve all worked two straight games and there’s no day off for a couple weeks.

  2. It’s only the first inning, but I can’t resist: “The Nats are our beeeeatch!” And, oh yeah, J Up is kinda hot.

  3. Yikes, the El Paso club has both Blaine Boyer AND Jeff Francouer? Have they checked on the availability of Ryan Langerhans?
