[Our movie reference is to a comedy. For such we must search because the drama is too negative to endure. We just try to laugh it off. Also, all of the cliches work. And, the title reminds us that this team has found MANY ways to lose, so this is one more.]
If “the Johns” really didn’t have the first draft pick in the next amateur draft as part of the plan, they really aren’t executing on the plan very well. Because the only legitimate contender to become the anointed worst team in Major League Baseball just lost ground in “the race to 1-1” last night.
Basically, Folty (Mike Foltynewicz) Foltied. Pretty good at times, not as good at times. He has shown he is a Major League caliber starter. Now if he can continue to improve command and control, he could make a “Randy Johnson type” leap. But at least this starting pitcher deserves to be on a Major League roster, even for a pretty good team. So, Braves have 2 of those.
Freddie Freeman turned around a cortisone shot awfully fast. Turned around 2 pitches into homeruns awfully quick. Both talent AND effort. Amazing.
The coffin nails were pounded in by a hammer known as Arodys Vizcaino. Either he is hurt or he is awfully off in “rustiness.”
This team only has 6 more chances to die in the West this year. I am expecting 4 or more.
