  1. Was up 12 points,... MY Jimmy Jesus & 49'ers DTS vs. HIS A. Cooper & ODB (After AC going bonkers last night I was chasing 35 points and ODB... no way I could ever win, had %98 loss prediction) I effffffin DID IT BABY!!!
  2. Both of Jimmy's INT's were bad efforts by intended targets... tipped gimme's for the DST deep in Niner territory. Falls in the category of $hit happens...
  3. Traded Vlad Jr. for Scherzer (went on DL before trade was even finalized) & T. Bauer (29 ER in 30 IP so far...) yup, that's all I've got.
  4. “I’m taking Acuna 1’st w/out hesitation... he’s the greatest ball player to ever play the game, and he’s only 21 years old!” - George Herman Ruth -
  5. See Acuna, Ronald... You think he will be there in round 7-10 until a sharp snatches him mid 4'th. Nightly highlights reels become sad... you silently cry down deep, wondering why your BFF/ Man-crush is on another team? The pain remains night after night, year after year. Baseball Tonight becomes unwatchable, you lose interest in pretty much anything non-Harry Potter related. The Schwan's guy comes by just to check on you, offers freebies so you will answer the door. 3 years from now, you commish a free public fantasy bowling league and host a weekly viewing of The Big Lebowski... Don't do it, don't go there! Draft Robert before round 5, and watch your leaguemates cringe! Don't efff this up!!!
  6. I'm happy to hear you're keeping the new ATL Closer till tomorrow. I've been on topic, scroll away. I've offered a slight bit more than your "must be high on him"... Do you know anything about the modern Braves? Or Martin for that matter? Martin is a guy, he's tall, has a career 4.5 ERA w/ very few walks... has had recent success. But Allard was destined for being a throw in, he's a bust of a first round pick. The Braves got what they could, and will employ him in the role they desperately need to fill until he reverts back to his "not a closer" role he's always had. This time of year, you ride the lightning, you roll w/ whoever you can, but Chris Martin is not a genuine closer like they 5-6 others that are ripe for the picking. Provided you aren't cheap AF, and know the fans will buy tickets and merchandise regardless of success. For your edification, the "quoted post" was a reply to my post, thus the reply on my part. I have no beef, but plz get a lil more depth to your closer input than holding the newly acquired ATL Closer for a day, or bringing up random Ted Turner era gibberish. Luke Jackson has SEVEN blown saves. The Braves traded for Chris Martin because they are cognizant of a major problem, yet cheap... the dots are not hard to connect here.
  7. Vicariously it did, bruh... twice removed, but it's not 1991, nor does Ted Turner own the Braves. Just don't see the relevance of brining up 25+ year old things. Nothing personal, but what does your desire to "hang on to Martin till tomorrow" have to do w/ the Braves last millennium exactly? And how does that apply to Martin closing?
  8. I vihamently disagree... Jackson is on the verge of setting a record for blown saves, (I know a few came when he was not the closer) and there is a reason ATL made this move! They are as complacent as any team in baseball during the season trade wise, and Jackson just kinda fell into the role. He had no business being the closer, but Viz got hurt, Minter got horrible, and Jackson was the only guy to do what needed to be done. (I still think ATL may make another move for an established guy, but if not... Martin is the defacto closer.) It's cooperate sayin we get it, we have problems... here's an obscure solution to a genuine problem. I'd like to introduce you to Nancy... she has no real experience in this arena, but she's new and doesn't fit in... so let's all welcome her and pretend this is the solution. 🤞😊
  9. Apologies... Closers have that one inning and I just though it was pertinent to those who didn't see what happened. He was excellent shy of one pitch. Just don't want someone dropping him as though he had a meltdown... but I get it.
  10. 1-2 pitch, he throws a 97 mph FB down the gut @ the high part of the zone... Bravado cost him. You have ZERO business throwing that pitch to a guy like Thames when you posses a nasty off speed pitch! You throw it 4-5" higher to change sight plane, then follow w/ slider... but you don't challenge Thames w/ a fastball for a strike. Not in the first inning, and certainly not when the game is on the line. Idiotic, but it was a bad pitch not a bad outing... stuck out the side, just went "full Kanye" there for a second.
  11. I watched every bit of it, and that was when my beloved Braves were owned by an actual person who gave his $ and heart to the team. 1991-2005 has jack mierta to do w/ my comment. Stay in your lane bro... Allard is a bust, a soft tosser in a world of high heat. Martin is the typical ATL signing, all the bean counters will allow... Braves took a nail out of the tire and bought a repair kit, but they have been cheap AF (considering they fleeced Acuna $ Albies to a MAJOR extent!)... and continue to NOT sell high on a plethora of MiLB talent when the MLB club is prime for a dynasty. Period, end of story.
  12. Here's the simple truth w/ Diaz. He went to the worst run organization in all of professional sports. The Mets are just everything wrong... w/ everything. Secondly, can anyone remember a time Diaz didn't allow an immediate BB, hit, or hit batsman... then IMEDIATELY not give two fox about the baserunner (regardless of it being a 1 run lead) advancing to 2'nd base, let alone 3'rd... most times w/out a throw given the ridiculous jump. That's coaching, plain and simple! You can't think so highly of your "stuff", that you let guys get into scoring position literaly EVERY time a runner reaches first base. As a manager w/ a pitching coach @ your disposal... you CANNOT allow that either. Diaz is a hot mess, his slider is flat and as much as I'd like to blame him personally... It's bigger than Diaz. It's Calloway (that should have been fired months ago), it's the GM who should go back to managing a Kinko's, it's ownership for a million reasons... it's just the "Mess" and what they do, who they are, and it's sad. It's just sad that a beloved team in a place as wonderful as NY is stuck w/ Will"tam"pon and his trickle down daily BS. (It's "Fu@%ing EMBARRASSING!") per LK's hockey coach!
  13. Luke Jackson making sure Martin's changing of the guard is not disputed... ATL still needs to do much more! So sick of them being ridiculously cheap considering how talented and primed for rings they are. Cooperate America @ it's finest and on full display.
  14. How nice it would be for those of us who've suffered to watch him go on a two month bender to finish the season! He can make up huge ground in that lineup in short order. He went down and got that curveball, very nice swing and he looks different at the plate in the last week or so... plz Benni, carry us to the promised land. 🤞🤞
