Braves Call Up Joe Mather ... FINALLY!

Oh, I get it now. Mather is going to help beat his old team, the Cardinals.

It seems like it's taken days, weeks even, but the Atlanta Braves love affair with outfielder Joe Mather has finally joined the Braves 25-man roster. Hizzah!

So to help their struggling offense, they recalled their best hitter at Gwinnett. Right?
Actually, no.
Okay, best hitting outfielder.
Nope.

He's Joe freakin Mather people. The Braves front office has wanted him on this team before they knew who Jose Constanza or Mauro Gomez were. And remember, Joe Mather has "Major League Experience."

So he's had success in the Majors?
No silly!

Mather brings his whopping .730 OPS (outdone by Matt Young, Diory Hernandez, Wilkin Ramirez, you get the point) to Atlanta. Finally.

Maybe Mather is hit better in the last ten games or so ... oh, just look it up, but you know the answer.
