The lights are growing dim. Julio, so far, is no good. If he’s no good, the Braves may not win 50 games. So far they’ve won none and that appears almost certain not to change today.
Twenty minutes ago I was thinking, “Hmm. Braves are up 1-0 and Julio looked pretty sharp through the first couple innings.” Ah, well. A two-out Harper grand slam, a quick inning by Strasburg, a 700-foot homer by Ramos and it’s 5-1 but feels like 25-1.
Fredi started Peterson in left today. Seems an odd move, but hey, he got a hit. Look out Andres Thomas, Terry Blocker, Ozzie Virgil, Kevin Coffman, Rick Mahler, German Jiminez and you ’88 Braves. The 2016 edition is coming.
