This year's team has been erractic in the runs department...I have seen LOB numbers in a lot of the games in the double didgets. I think that in our next foray into the market (when we trade off some young arms) we will need to seriously look at the requested player's Hits w/RISP avg. David Justice's number were really good... and we should be looking at this....My vote for Next year's free agent will be another one from the rising sun. Yankee's Matsui...it seems everytime I have seen him play in this situation he gets the guy home!
On a continued note; I mentioned that I was taking offers on keeping me overseas for this season....sorry I will not entertain permanent requests LOL...but as I mentioned everytime during my Navy career that I was overseas we played in the world Series...and won one when I was stationed in the middle east (where I am at now) I am retired now so I am hoping that the carma means that I will be able to return to watch them play in the WS. So, I am taking offers (Bribes) to keep me overseas for this season...no money offers please but Braves memerobilia accepted! Also, If anyone has the pull to get me a first pitch throw out at a Brave's game ..I say see you in September!
