Ya beat me to it.

This is going to be fun. I bleieve it was Cos who said he hasn't gotten to see him yet... When he hits the ball, it consistently has that sound.

On the one hand, the fact that each of his first two PAs have been deep one-pitch flyoutx makes it tempting to speculate he's pressing a little today,

On the other hand, the exit velocities have been 100.8 and 97.4 MPH, the second and third hardest hit balls by any Brave tonight (Dansby had one at 105.7, and the Reds have a huge advantage because they're getting to face Matt Wisler).

Te Reds pitcher had a 102.4 MPH EV lineout off of Wisler. I really don't understand why we keep bringing him back.

The Great American Smallpark at work: Albies third AB ended in a struck ball that, based on exit velocity and launch angle, is a hit 54% of the time in the major leagues,

Here, it was a home run.

Yeah, Wisler is a #5 to me (at best).

Wisler is our #7 (here due to injuries to Gohara and Sanchez), and that's too high.

By the way, I'm really looking forward to our July rotation of Julio, Folty, Gohara, McCarthy, and Soroka.
