2019 Atlanta Braves Player Reviews: Mike Foltynewicz

I’ve spilled a lot of ink in the comments about Folty, so I’ll try to recap and be concise. Look, I don’t know who Mike Foltynewicz is, and I don’t know who does. In almost every timespan or environment, the man has been manic, whether it be in the 2018 and 2019 postseason, the 2019 … Continue reading “2019 Atlanta Braves Player Reviews: Mike Foltynewicz”

2019 Atlanta Braves Player Review: Max Fried

I feel like we’ve been waiting a long time to see the unleashed Max Fried. He’s a first round pick in 2012, we picked him up in the beginning of The Great Rebuild in the Justin Upton trade, and we sit here in 2019 waiting for him to have the training wheels taken off at … Continue reading “2019 Atlanta Braves Player Review: Max Fried”

He has thrown less than 90 pitches in 7 of his last 14 … Continue reading “Braves 5, Phils 4 (And My Remaining Regular Season Storylines)”

The Braves Played A Game In Canada and Lost

Sorry for the delayed recap, and there won’t be one. Instead, call it a game thread. Folty vs. something called a Jacob Waguespack. Tonight at 7:07 PM. Check it out. Whoops, have to put more lines so the “keep reading” button comes up. Go Gators. I still believe that George Lazenby was vastly underrated as … Continue reading “The Braves Played A Game In Canada and Lost”
