I don’t know what Dan Uggla has to do to get benched. He did his best to lose last night’s game before Evan Gattis rescued the Bravos in extras.
Yet Gattis and his .950 OPS are hitting behind Uggla in the line-up. Only B.J. and Jay Hey have a lower OPS than Fan. Makes you wonder about Fredi’s line-up construction.
As for Jay Hey’s bunt in the 9th, Fredi says it was Heyward’s call but he was fine with it.
And so it goes. The Braves keep winning despite the best efforts of some to sabotage their progress.
1 Heyward RF 2. BUpton CF 3. Freeman 1B 4. JUpton LF 5. Johnson 3B 6. Uggla 2B 7. Gattis C 8. Simmons SS 9. Wood P
Here’s the line-up I’d prefer:
