    I like how Parra recovered after his intro to the Majors. "Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger" certainly applies here.

    Dusty going all in for the win.

    His best shot is a trade for Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder before the next inning starts.
    I'd do Heisey, Travieso and Hamilton. And expedited shipping on the uniforms.

    Agreed. Haven't noticed anyone being disrespectful today.

    I agree and he still needs to go when Marshall comes back

    That's true but he made 2 really bad plays in the field today, both of which led to runs.

    Otherwise, yeah, he was unlucky.

    It's not the disagreeing. It's the telling other people how they should think, or making condescending comments about someone else's opinions. I tend to lean toward the positive side, but I also understand a fan critiquing their team, especially in game threads. I participate in Reds, Bengals and UK basketball and football game threads, but this is the only one where a group of posters spend more time talking about other posters' opinions than the game itself.

    Sorry to disagree, hope the thread police don't get me.

    Homer gave up a ton of hits to the weakest hitters on the Braves. He allowed a two run double to the pitcher after an 0-2 count.

    They didn't hit bombs but it wasn't really weak contact. The balls went through pretty easily.

    Homer is a strikeout pitcher and he couldn't put away even the weakest hitters on the Braves, playing without the Upton brothers and Heyward.

    Not a good outing.

    Ok, can't hurt to hope. Come on, you bums. Get some runs.
