    Wow. That was such a playoff game the Braves would have lost for the last 15 yrs. Maybe this post-season will be different. Have to love taking their best shot with Bauer but still scratching out a win.

    I actually like Bauer. He's just a weird guy, but he's authentic. It's not an act, just a ****. I'll take that over some of the robots.

    Tomorrow/possibly Friday will be huge. If Anderson (and to a lesser extent, Wright) can perform in the playoffs as rookies then we could make a run. Would also be huge for those guys’ development. Tomorrow, we will see what Anderson is really made of. Go Braves

    Great win for the home team. Brutally tough for the other guys. Hopefully they don't get off the mat tomorrow.

    12:08 start again. Anderson vs. Castillo

    I'm just waiting for the inevitable slide in production that will occur when our weak rotation is exposed. Hoping we can produce runs consistently to keep up the wins but I am not betting on anything.

    Yeah advanced analytics say it’s not a useful strategy. Also, people think bunting is like an automatic thing but bunting is low key pretty hard and not many have that skill these days.

    Agree. I get frustrated when a major leaguer fails to successfully bunt, especially with 2 or 3 tries in an AB.

    I believe the only time advanced analytics says to bunt is when runners are first and second and no outs (and these stats aren't that advanced, it just took teams who did and didn't bunt and averaged the runs scored, those that chose not to bunt scored more runs in those innings bunting situations came up).
