I mean, "the guy played in the WBC" etc., but he's solid at lead-off as well. Shouldn't Schafer be on the DL with that wrist? And even then, kid has a shitload of crap to work on.
Personally, I love Blanco. The guy can play, hits, and draws a ton of walks, and I would rather have him come up with 2 on, 2 outs, as opposed to Jordan Schafer. Plus, it's ridiculous that he was overshadowed because of the WBC? Have these old fucks managing this popcicle stand finally kicked the bucket? You tell me, folks.
But yeah, that's just me. On with the losing.
Am I being a negative nancy? Sure. But I guarantee a .500 record if I was managing the Braves right now. GUARANTEED, holmes. Our manager has made some sloppy/bad choices so far this run, and I like the guy. But I'm also calling him out for bullshit.
