Open thread, 5/6, #Braves vs. Arlen Specters

Last night was a good one to be a Braves fan. We needed it.

Shelby Miller was sublime. Matt Wisler righted himself at Gwinnett, tossing 5-1/3 innings of 1-run ball, striking out 7 and walking one. And teammate Jose Peraza remained red-hot, upping his BA to .320 with two steals.

Back to the present: CD has given me permission to mock him for complaining 9 days ago about KJ’s playing time. Since then KJ, with a .578 slugging percentage in 2015, has homered four times. Perhaps he was motivated by CD’s slight.

He’s in the line-up tonight, as is Alberto Callaspo, the Latin Keith Lockhart.

Markakis 9, Simmons 6, Freeman 3, KJohnson 7, Callaspo 5, Bethancourt 2, Peterson 4, Maybin 8, Foltynewicz 1

  1. OT but if any of you guys haven’t seen the E:60 segment of Ernie Johnson, look out for it or find it online. It’s fantastic.

  2. That Ernie Johnson Jr E60 can be seen again this Sunday at 7 AM EST on ESPN2.

  3. Meanwhile, Wandy Rodriguez through 3 starts for the Rangers, has a 3.12 ERA. Sure glad we dumped him so we could spend a lot more on Cahill, U.S. Marshal.
