Putting it all together... and since it's a 60 game season, no 2nd half swoon hahaha.

Going to get in all these victory laps when I can.

 

 

 

 

Can I join you on your victory lap? Cause you and all the data you had been presenting on Swanson are the reasons I went out and got him preemptively, just ahead of his apparent break out. Thanks!!

I hope they let him keep the 2 hole but probably not once Albies comes back

 

Yep, the Braves moved Dansby back down to the 6 hole today with Albies.  Clearly batting only .387 isn't good enough for a #2 hitter and clearly scoring only 11 runs last night with Dansby in the 2 hole wasn't good enough.

I mean, I get it. Albies has a higher (but not great) obp for his career. So not pulling the trigger right this second isn’t egregious. If Dansby is indeed breaking out and can up his avg and keep his walk rate and he is still kept in the bottom third, then maybe it’s time to complain. 
 

Managers don’t really think that way. If you haven’t before, go read the Fire Joe Morgan blog. Some great old instances of managers batting guys lead off or second who have like .300 obp’s because of their veteran grittiness.

You make a good point but I try not to worry about things you can't control. If you believe in Swanson's breakout then he'll eventually get a better place in the lineup if he's better than other hitters. I like Swanson a lot but his slashline will come down a bunch.

Great start but I always check the plate discipline with these hot starts and that 14/1 K/BB is staring me in the face. I love his swing but pitchers will soon try and exploit him out of the zone and hopefully he can adjust and take a few free passes. If he does he can have a great year though, and the steals are added gravy.
