He’s still the manager, though Coppy passed on giving him a vote of confidence. Fredi celebrates by trotting out another stupid line-up, batting Mallex Smith 9th. This team has got to create some offense somehow, and a speedy guy atop the line-up would seem natural. I’d bat Mallex and Inciarte 1-2, followed by Markakis, Freddie and assorted crap.
It’s so hard to be a Braves fan when you hate the ownership, have minimal confidence in the front office and none in the manager. But here we are.
At least Aaron Blair is pitching today, against a struggling Zack Greinke. Doubt he struggles against this line-up:
Markakis, Adonis, Freddie, KJ, AJ, Brignac, Aybar, Blair, Mallex
