@Fat Drunk and Stupid - is this thing on?

(Maybe) 8 games up on the Nats??  It’s been a long time since I enjoyed watching a team as much as this one.

Definitely fun watching this team.

I do not care for the Braves

When did this happen or am I completely making #### up?

Making #### up. I go to Braves games, due to location. Root against them mostly.

I think that was it - you gave me tickets one time so I just assumed you were a fan. 

Screw you.

YIC.

Extremely fun team to watch and super likeable.

The good part is even if they miss out on postseason this year they are really setup well to contend for several years.  Would love to see them splash some money in the offseason for a big bat or arm to go with all the kids.

That's potentially a devastating loss for a young team.  Just horrible.

Their bullpen is going to kill them if they make it to the post-season.

They picked a great time to get hot.  The next 9 games are at home and it’s would be great to clinch before that season ending road trip so they can get some rest and setup the rotation.

@GroveDiesel

@pollardsvision

I may be jinxing us asking this but what do you think the potential playoff rotation looks like?

Folty

Newcomb

Gausman

Teheran or Sanchez??

I don’t trust Teheran but if you don’t start him he’s probably not even worth putting on the roster.

Good question. He has been pretty uneven, but he also has been pretty good lately. Over his last 7 starts, his ERA is 2.64. 

Man, is Acuna good or what? I read somewhere an article saying that the Braves would obviously move Acuna down in the lineup at some point. That would be crazy IMO. He is clearly thriving in the leadoff role.

Let’s get some offseason discussion going. I’ll be disappointed if they resign Markakis for RF instead of acquiring a better hitter. Also hope they trade Julio and add a better SP to slot in at #1 or #2.

Acquiring Donaldson for nothing ensures at least a top half finish in the Hot Stove League

Looks like Acuna is going to sign an extension

http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/26423778/braves-acuna-finalizing-100m-deal

That's a steal after seeing what Harper and Machado just got.

 

I TOTALLY get why Acuna is signing this deal. It sets him up for life. 

But I'm not sure I would have done it. He's giving up an awful lot. (Of course, that's REALLY easy for me to say when the Braves aren't waiving $100mm in front of my face).

Great deal for the Braves.

3 more SB and Acuna gets to 40/40 :popcorn:  Doesn't seem to be chasing it, but that just could be he has a terrible OBP this month...
