Any relief pitchers out there ?

The Bravos' bullpen faltered yet again last night. As good as most of AA's pickups have been, this bullpen is imploding. No lead is safe with them. I wonder if Acuna can pitch.

    It’s been pretty ****. I guess this team is cool with basically not having a closer let alone a setup guy? Defense has been garbage lately too. Maybe instead of bringing in the massive failure that is Duvall they should have brought in a few more arms? I don’t count Venters because he’s on the downside of his career.

    Not trading for a couple of relievers before the trade deadline looks worse every game. Can't take too many games watching Sam Freeman and Winkler. They should have gotten some of their minor league guys used to relieving before they called them up, couldn't have done any worse.

    Typical Braves: get a superstar and let him get away: Andrelton Simmons SS and Craig Kimbrel RP are a couple of examples. Trading young talent away for Duvall!!! Mind boggling. I have been a Braves fan since 1966, but if they let Freddie Freeman get away, I’m done.

    Saw where Nick Ahmand, former Brave, has found a nice spot in Arizona with a contending club. I don't see much chance of Freddie leaving....glad to see he got a one day rest....hit the ball well last night.
