exactly!! if a team is going to give u a base u take it! especially with the way jr. and dunn are hitting. if they could get on somehow, it would give votto and ede (2 hitters hitting well) a chance to actually drive in some runs for this team.
i was at the game tonight, and you could tell by the 5th inning we were not going to score a run, if not earlier... patterson's plus fielding helped us out too, or it may have been a scoreless game, cause the braves couldn't even see volquez!! it was awesome, absolutely none of the braves looked comfortable except maybe chipper (mccann got lucky and guessed changeup).
trade griffey and dunn and bring up bruce,because he needs ab's! this season is going down the drain fast!!
