MONDAY'S SCHEDULE



It's too drat early for baseball.

Fun fact! The Giants # 2 and 3 pitchers have more wins (15) than all of the Braves (14).

I get mad at Matt Duffy too, but only when he's holding a bat. When he has a glove on, he's a perfect angel.

How are Braves fans not embarrassed to do the Tomahawk chop?

Is the answer "because Braves fans"?

Oh it did. But it didn't (apparently) meet the criteria for review. Which is hosed when the reason for review is "to get it right."

Braves will still find a way to lose this but fun while it lasts.

Any day a team can't beat the Braves is a day with bigger problems than just umps. Like the decision to IBB Pierzynski.

And lo and behold, it's all coming undone.

He got out of it! :golfclap:

Harvey throws his first quality start since the 2015 WS, and the Mets don't give him any run support.

As much as I want to be a good and supportive Mets fan, I don't think my heart can take another Harvey start.

I'm sure that since I'm going to be actively avoided this game, he's going to pitch a no-hitter or some poo poo.

I am personally offended that Matt Harvey waited until I wasn't watching to turn back into his old self. :mad:

The Braves are now 15-35, 20 games under .500, and that's after winning today's game. Two of those wins have been against the 32-21 Giants, and the 34-14 Cubs.

Baseball is weird.

At what point will it be acceptable for announcers to just go ahead and tell us, "Well, the catcher took a foul ball in the junk," rather than gingerly tiptoeing around what happened?

I like that instead of doing that bullshit ignore the guy who hit his first career dinger thing, Papi just bear hugged Marco as soon as he came back to the dugout.
