Ya, Scherzer looks atrocious.  But at anytime he can find his slot and start dealing.

Scherzer is not close right now. A bad look but he gets out of it with a DP grounder.

I actually defended him early to mid season last year.  My fantasy analysis is atrocious sometimes!

He's continuing where he left off last season. 0-for-9 with 5 K's to start off the season. Why he is hitting second is a complete mystery.

Am I the only one who just hates this Braves lineup?  I see so many bad hitters in this lineup.  Its basically Heyward, Freddie Freeman and the 150 strikeout band.  Uggla, Upton Brothers, Gattis just human whiff machines.  Braves desperately need Justin Upton to have a huge year, otherwise this lineup could be pretty mediocre.

Lolz listening to the Braves announcers try to discuss sabermetrics. Comical doesn't even start to describe it. Apparently all saber people don't believe in pitcher v hitter matchups, and they need to understand why managers DON'T (I repeat, DO NOT) play lefty/lefty or righty/righty matchups - because it's about the matchup. If a batter is 21 for 60 against a pitcher, that should to be ignored, and saber people need to stop doing that and criticizing managers who go with the pitcher who gets the guy out vs the same handed matchup.

I repeat LOLZ. It's like that scene in Zoolander "it's IN the computer"?
