    If he had 10 SB's, half the griping in this thread would go away....but for some reason he is not running and it's aggravating us!

    He had 11 Ks in 22 Triple-A AB's before yesterday, so my guess is you'll have to keep enjoying your box score reading for a bit longer.....

    anybody leery about starting him against the Cubs, who saw him five days ago?

    hopefully batting him after Freeman will free him up to run more....his RBI chances should increase as well, and if he runs, hopefully that offsets some of the runs he would lose by not hitting in front of Freeman. Net-net, I believe it's better for his value to drop to 4th-5th if it means he will get more green lights. Enciarte hasn't run at all since moving up to the top of the order.

    Maybe the defensive stats bear that out, I don't know, but I've watched quite a bit of Correa this year and at least by the eye test his defense looks unreal. Lotta good that does in fantasy I know but I had to stem the beating just a bit lol. No doubt Lindor has smoked him offensively thusfar.

    my bad. Terrible overreaction. No wonder I'm an A-ball poster.

    Hiding behind the "quit pouting and start producing" rhetoric when the guy produced for over a year is a weak cover for the fact that the Braves want to disguse thier true intentions as to why he was kept off the opening day roster in the first place. If you were passed up for a promotion at work that you deserved because of some technicality and then made a mistake a few weeks after and then your boss came over and gloated and said "See, this is why I didn't promote you" wouldn't you be upset? It's almost as if they're happy he is slumping because then they can cover their tracks as to the service time game they were playing to get the union off their back. I hope he requests a trade and sits out the year. The Braves are treating him like garbage.

    I get it, but my point is Anthro-whatever is saying they're waiting for him to get hot before calling him up, but he's only saying that to cover his tracks to avoid a potential situation over a union complaint over service time issues. If you were Acuna and you heard that, after being hot for the entirety of 2017 and fall ball, as well as 2018 spring training, wouldn't it tick you off?
  9. Ronald Acuna - OF ATL

    Uhh, he was hot at the end of spring training, sir. So to cover their tracks about an extra year of control, they've effectively messed with the psyche of their best hitter. If I was Acuna's agent, I would be going ballistic right now.

    How come Buxton isn't eligible to come off the DL on Monday, the 23rd? The last game he played was on Thursday the 12th because they had the whole White Sox series washed out that weekend. Is there a rule that you can't back date DL stints to rained out games?
  11. Ronald Acuna - OF ATL

    I can't see them making him prove himself over a small sample size as a prerequisite for call-up when he's blown past all other meaningful hurdles. Talk about messing with the psyche of a young kid for no reason. If he goes 0-for-the-weekend he should still be up on Monday.
