Open Thread and Avoid the Sweep

New, 30 comments

Burn your brooms, we don’t want no stinking sweep! Rememberthose Braves teams throughout the 90’s with really good pitching, good defense,and decent hitting that were always predicted to make the playoffs but got offto terrible starts the first half of the season only to get hot in the secondhalf and win the division? This team reminds me of those teams. On paper welook great, but on the field we look like we want our mommy. This is why we thefans are so frustrated -- we know the team is good, they’re just not playingthat way. So just keep thinking, "it’ll get better."

It’s an afternoon tilt today, so get your NAHWAL picks inearly.
