I’m not watching every Braves game this year, but I try not to miss a start by Folty because A.) He’s an important part of the future and B.) he appears to be on the verge of acedom.
If Folty continues pitching like he has most of this year, next year won’t be so bad. If not, we’re in huge trouble.
Pitching at Coors will be a test in itself, and not just for the hard-throwing right-hander. The Braves have lost 6 of 8 to the Rockies, and Freddie’s struggles have been a major factor.
As DOB reports, Freeman is 1-for-29 with 12 strikeouts in those eight games. He’s 0-for-9 against tonight’s starter, Chad Bettis. He’s due.
