Dansby is so fricking unlucky. At least Jace is PHing and not Boni. ...

re: The ATL Thread 4/22 edition: Braves vs. Phillies, 6:05 CDT - Patron Saint
I don't think it should come to that until at least early May. He's striking out a lot and needs to adjust to ML sliders, but he also has been pretty unlucky when he puts the ball in play. ...

re: The ATL Thread 4/22 edition: Braves vs. Phillies, 6:05 CDT - Patron Saint
I think I started most of them during the winning streak. But I'll be happy to take a break for the good of the team if someone else wants to start it. ETA: Actually, I'm a pitiful 1-5. ...

Catcher and third base are black holes in this lineup. Once Dansby gets going, the lineup will otherwise be pretty solid. ...

Yeah I don't think versatility is useful when you suck. I would much rather a guy who is average average at one position than someone who sucks at six positions. ...

I think Ruiz was pretty highly regarded when we first acquired him. At this point, he still looks like he has the potential to be a useful platoon piece. ...

It's early. If his hitting picks up, specifically against righties, then I wouldn't be against calling him up. Didn't he supposedly have a strong spring? Just like we aren't saying Dansby will suck forever because of a bad two weeks, I don't think it's fair to say Rio will never turn it around. ...

I meant if/when he starts hitting in AAA, which I expect he will. If he doesn't start hitting, something still needs to be done. Garcia can't be in the lineup against right-handed pitching. ETA: Could also consider platooning Jace at third with Garcia. Jace is still a below average hitter agains...
