Open Thread, Aug. 30, Coolest #Braves Shirt Ever

I picked up this beaut at the Grant Park Summer Shade Festival on Saturday. I’m not sure how well it translates here, but the image of Henry Louis Aaron is pretty bad-ass. And, of course, it’s not an official team-issued product.

This “King Henry” t-shirt is sold by an outfit called 404proud.com. Check out their site. They have lots of other intriguing Atlanta-themed shirts and gear, even a shirt featuring Midtown’s Baton Bob. And they’re nice folks.

Anyway, Julio aims to rebound tonight. The lineup: Inciarte, Garcia, Freddie, Kemp, Markakis, Flowers, Peterson, Swanson, Julio.

  1. Dansby’s 2-for-3 with 3 RBI tonight. He’s clearly holding his own in the bigs.

  2. Interestingly the Braves have held him out against the best pitchers: Scherzer, Greinke and Bumgarner. Hope he keeps it up, but 40 ABs is not enough to make a judgement one way or the other.

  3. Not making any sweeping judgments. Just saying he doesn’t look overmatched. I’m thinking he might be like David Justice, who put up so-so minor league numbers and then thrived in the majors.
