    Yes Sir.

    .143 had another bad night. He is 0-8 last two games. It's not a slump.

    He's really pressing and struggling. The alarming part is the strikeout rates. Unlike Olson he isnt hitting the ball hard and its crept into his baserunning and fielding too. The other day when he smashed his bat into the ground to break it, it was a bad sign of how frustrated he is currently. Another day off soon may be in order.

    As for the team and compared to the Phillies, they are currently 4-2 vs teams with a winning record. They are beating the teams they should though and most nights are destroying them. As much as winning the division is great, as we all have seen in the previous 30 years, it means nothing for World Series wins. This team just needs to make the playoffs because then we will throw Fried, Lopez and Sale and it will be extremely hard to beat.

    Ronald Acuna suffers a season ending Left ACL complete tear during an attempt to steal third in the first inning of yesterday's game against the Pirates. He will undergo surgery soon.

    All the early prognostications on page one regarding Acuna sure didn't age well.

    Suspect he hurt his good knee in the offseason playing down Venez way and tried to cover it up.. that didn't last. Now, he's out for the year and will have to work twice as hard to be ready for 2025. Braves still gonna have to pay him too.

    Truly think that the Braves are better off without him as he is overpaid, overrated and overvalued. Dude was not performing offensively , nor defensively. Hard to play well with a torn up knee. Braves proved in 2021 that the Team as a whole doesn't need one person to win . There is depth in the line up. We shall see as the saying goes, but the Braves can and will be competitive without Ronnie.

    Having riley back is big. I enjoyed the tribute they gave to Rosario at the plate. Dude was on fire during the WS run. The pitching is concerning for sure. Fried can't carry the team on his back. Charlie Morton looked lost on the mound the last game he started.

    prayers for the braves bc they just plain suck and how many pitchers do we have making their debut that also suck?
    and the orioles will beat the shit out of us.

    I hate losing and this year's team is a loser.
    acuna cant be that damn important.

    i hate it for fried and sale bc they are pitching well.
    Ugh. Stupid people piss me off.

    Not so long ago, I watched them lose over 90 games a year for 3 years and watched damn near every game bc you got to see the up and comers and the future. They were supposed to lose then so it didn't hurt to watch.

    Now they are supposed to win, and are losing, and it sucks

    Charlie Morton is struggling real bad. Fried and Sale doing alright. Loosing Strider hurt more than acuna. Its been a struggle to watch this year for sure.
