Has anyone ever explained why Keon's wristbands have #53 on them?

No reason to take Davies out..... Davies is 8th and if he gets two on, Knebel. This sort of crap bothers me too... why take him out when he is rolling? 94 pitches? Could easily get an inning or two!

I would have let Davies go another inning but second guessing is easy.

Hope it works out

Better hold onto this one. Literally not one single other game in baseball tonight that was a favorable result for us.

Braun another failed chance at a run in scoring position.

Counsell lost some faith he had from me tonight with Perez leading off. Flat out stupid. Not one reasonable reason for it. Perez is not good.

The day off is what set this trainwreck in motion.

What is CC's sick fixation with putting our worst hitters in the leadoff position?


At this point I'd expect to see the pitcher leading off tomorrow

Perez is good in the sense that he can provide defensive value from basically any position which allows maximum roster flexibility and he occasionally has some pop off the bench. Counsell basically treats him as a de facto starter though, which is insane.

BCB I think wrote something about this. The more you play Perez, the more he's exposed, so you want to limit the amount of plate appearances he gets.

I am confident that Davies could have struck out looking, like Broxton did.

I'm really trying hard to recall without looking it up when the last time Braun went yard was.

Dude is still a good player, but he's no longer a special one. He looks basically like a .270 hitter who will give you a .850 OPS and 15-20 HR in 110-120 games.

I guess if there's a silver lining he's stayed generally healthy since he came back from the DL.

Just give us decent numbers and 120 games a year the next 3 years and I'll be happy. It appears the point of him drawing any real trade interest has come and gone.

August 12th against the Reds. Before that it was July 22nd against the Phillies. Before that it was July 14th against the Phillies. Interesting that 7 of his 13 home runs this year have come against the Phillies or Reds.

It's hilarious that MLB umpires claim that pitch framing doesn't fool them at that level.

Or, don't panic every time there's a man on base.

While Braun needs to do a better job with RISP, adambr2 is overreacting a bit here. He hit 30 a year ago. 25 a year before that. Is he in a slump at the moment? Sure. But just a week ago many places reported how he had his highest hit velocity and line drive rate of his career and was just in a bad luck streak. He still is a very special hitter. Unfortunately this season hasn't been of all much luck to him. Hopefully that turns around down the stretch.
