Lol Jeff Football has been in the league like 6 years. He doesn't have much Future Ace potential.
lol yes he does. Watch him pitch, he can be downright dominant and has some of the best stuff in the NL. I know he's 28, but this is only his second season as a starter and if he continues to improve then he's an ace.
How can the schedule makers explain having the Braves and Blue Jays play two games in Toronto, and then turn around and play two games in Atlanta without a day off in between?
We played Kansas City earlier in the year and play them again in late June, so why not make that the interleague series where we play two at home and two on the road in four days?
It'll be nice to finally start getting more home games, though. So far 31 of our 51 games have been on the road; but we're 16-15 on the road and 31-20 overall which, given how brutal the schedule has been to start the season, is pretty damn good.
Upton missed some high 86 mph meatballs in his last AB vs Buehrle.
Braves are showing signs of having a decimated bullpen. Hudson was left in way too long and they had to just leave Rasmus in there to absorb the punishment and finish it off.
BJ Upton will not be the starting centrefielder if this continues towards the all-star break. Schafer is playing too well, and he is the only guy who has shown any capability in the leadoff spot this year. You can only try to get a guy out of a funk for so long before you make a change. He's already had a full 1/4 of the season to try to work this out.
Jean Segura went 6 for 7 tonight in the Brewers-Twins 14 Inning game. He's now hitting .365/.400/.569 on the season and is on pace to have 233 hits, 26 HR's, 19 Doubles, 16 Triples and have 45 Stolen Bases. The Brewers got themselves a star SS for Greinke.

These guys do turnarounds a lot worse than that over the course of the year. I don't see what's unreasonable about this at all, especially given how early today's game was.
It just seems odd because we're playing the same team; twice in Toronto then turning around and playing them twice in Atlanta. It's probably a near 1,000 mile trip. I'm sure teams on the east coast turn around and travel to the west coast and play a game the next day but, like I said, it just seems odd since it's four games involving the same two teams in different locations 1,000 miles apart.
