I never got a sense of his great arm while watching M's games. Olivo was, often, a damn embarrassment behind the plate with passed balls/wild pitches. When he's starting 100+ games, there's a lot to hate about Miguel Olivo,

The numbers don't lie. I'm not saying he was a great catcher, because as a former catcher myself there is a LOT more to being good defensively than having a good release to second. I was just comparing him to JP is all.

Bravos 12 games above .500 with:

- Evan Gattis leading the team in RBI
- Freeman, Heyward, and McCann missing time due to injury
- bullpen missing three key arms (although this is bound to catch up with them)
- Starting CF hitting .150 after 40 games

So either they've been lucky, or they could be scary good once these guys put it together for real.

Will be watching the Braves destroy the Blue Jays this Tuesday in Toronto, it will quench my thirst until I see them at Turner Field in July.

Warning to everyone: JP Arencibia just drew a walk.

Go spend these last few moments of existence with your loved ones (or at a strip club). It can't be much longer for the Earth now.

Don't underestimate the gap between the American League and Nat'l League. Jays hammered the Giants earlier this year (who dismantled ATL in their 4-game set). Obviously that doesn't mean Jays > Giants > Atlanta or anything like that, but it wouldn't surprise me for Atlanta to have their hands full with the Jays.
