Fredi’s undermining continues — even after last night’s half-ass display by B.J., who failed to charge a ball in CF, allowing a Marlins baserunner to take third base. As Joe said on the telecast, that wouldn’t have happened with Emilio.
But Emilio is on the bench today because Fredi doesn’t want to overexpose him. Instead the manager Frank Wren hired continues to overexpose the worst player in baseball, signed by Frank Wren. Speaking of the Braves GM, he doesn’t appear to have anything cooking on the trade market despite glaring needs. Meanwhile, small-market Oakland swings a deal for Adam Dunn with just hours remaining on the waiver deadline.
Like B.J., it appears most fans in Atlanta don’t give two shits about this team, and after yet another flat, uninspired performance, it’s hard to blame them. Arizona, playing host to the Rockies, drew more fans last night than the Braves.
