Open thread, 4/7, #Braves vs. Bucs

Folty has to fulfill his potential this year. Has to. If he doesn’t, the Braves are unlikely to contend next year.

It would be unreasonable to expect any more than two of the prized prospects to be ready to compete for a spot in the rotation next year. Dickey, Colon and Garcia are likely one and done. Maybe they bring in an Alex Cobb or Francisco Liriano. But they’re also going to need a catcher and, most likely, a third baseman.

I’m optimistic Folty turns the corner. The line-up remains unchanged, with Kurt Suzuki behind the plate for today’s tilt vs. the Pirates.
