    Brian McCann can hit. He put a pretty good swing on Chapman last night.

    The Braves have the luxury of being able to load their lineup with lefties. If only the Reds could do that.

    I understand there are a million ways to score from third with one out, but how many ways can you score from the bench? I think all this aggressive base running is comparable to base stealing. You have to be safe a good percentage of the time or else you are just hurting the team.

    Braves hitters are tough outs. They don't give in easily.

    They've been taking early and getting ahead of Cueto. They have much different management and a huge difference in hitting philosophy. Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on your point of view, a Baker led team will not use that strategy.

    Pass this idea on to Walt.

    Baker has said his guys have gotten into too many deep counts this year, and that's the reason for the lack of offense. So, they aren't going to work many counts or take many walks.

    Not looking good. I wish we had an offense comparable to Atlanta

    Any chance that Walt is dyslexic and feels like the team has enough lefties already?

    I recall that the Braves hitting philosophy was very impressive down the stretch last year.

    They should just fast forward every Reds' game to the sixth inning. Give each team a run or two and start from there.

    I run Cozart here. If he gets thrown out, so be it.

    Into the brig for Cozart. How dare he take a walk.
