man is the kid locked in!
Could be another excruciating inning as Robots leaves him in for the win.
This is fun as fuck Joc
I like this pace Joc is HRing at. Not bad at all
is this the new davey?
Concerning. But least the offense is doin ok.
Hopefully the starters just going through a bad stretch but can regain form after some rest
Ryu is ded and so is our season?
gotta show up and grab my billie jean king bobble wtf is up w that?
the good thing is that Ryu has shown he can go on long breaks and come back just fine, so I wouldn't feel TOO scared if they essentially give him only one more start before the playoffs, if that.
The bad thing is that he's pitched way more innings than in previous recent years and it might just be catching up to him.
The other good thing? We have plenty of good candidates to start after Ryu (Hill, Urias, Gonsolin, May with Stripling/Maeda is desperate options). The bad thing: Ryu can't pitch in the bullpen
Stop pitching Ryu.
Unless the objective is for him to end up on the IL until the next season, I don't get why we keep pitching a dude that is clearly on E.
No, I don't think so. Ryu is really hittable now, and there really is no purpose in letting him get scrambled like he has been. Really ineffective and flat out poor pitching.
Looking at the starters, so much our strengths initially, have done a Jekyl and Hyde 180° these days.
Which a good reason not to sign him to a long term deal.
I won't say Lux sux, but he isn't the savior we all clamored for the last few weeks. Nope.
Unless he can also pitch like hell.
Just reading the comments after turning the game off, this is the most depressing 100 win team of all time.
We just know the doom that awaits us.
I get it but I honestly think this is the funnest regular season since maybe 2013. Funnest offense we’ve had In forever. 2017 was awesome too but, Idk. I could go crazy from sadness trying to predict the doom of October but just trying to enjoy this regular season or else what’s the point of tuning in every day. But, just me and no ones wrong for seeing anything differently
Since 2016, there is little hope for a team to win the WS unless they are basically flawless.
That's what ruins the game for me.
While it can be irritating to watch Will Smith come back down to earth, we have to remember that we don't need him to be a .300 hitter with 30 bombs. We just need him to be physically capable of getting a hit, which Barnes was unable to do. Nestle Smithers in the 8 spot and let him be the serviceable .260/.330/.450 guy he is.
It is concerning, however, that many of our young guys and even veterans look like they are out of gas. We've experienced it in the past and it is happening again. I don't follow baseball closely enough as a whole to know whether this happens to other teams or not. But I feel like our guys get burned out bigtime.
As for lux, we will see what happens. Not every rookie can come up and light the world on fire. He still might. But If it isn't in the cards for him to contribute in the post season, at least Muncy is looking good defensively and Taylor, Freese, etc. are healthy and looking good. As long as it isn't Enrique benefiting.
Feels like we’re getting great looks at potential bullpen pieces. The relievers, outside of Kenley, have looked pretty good
I think we all tend to forget these guys are human
they smoked the division and almost the entire league and now they're well aware of their shortcomings the last years
not one of them doesn't understand what's at stake and their minds and bodies wander
the same way guys start or stop hitting at the same time
or the bp and starting pitching challenge each other to perform its on them and they know it
are we destined to be the braves of this decade?
I certainly hope not and little things I'm seeing tell me this is the year
its basically davey and the FO getting real because the talent is definitely there
