This game they needed better umps. Camargo had home then Culbertson clearly had third.

The league should be embarrassed by that review of Camargo's slide. I have seen WAY too many calls upheld this season that were clearly called wrong on the field. Even Joe Simpson pointed out during the game that the umps in NY are "looking out for their brothers". If you're not going to handle replay correctly, just don't have replay.

I agree, in the NFL if you lose a challenge you still have it. Why not have that in the MLB? It's just disgraceful.

The NFL also doesn't have other referees handling the replay challenges. It's a league official.

We didn't really need Kimbrel the last 3-4 years, but the last two games have shown why we need him now.

Who's available...I have not even looked? (And please don't say 'Jim Johnson'!)

I heard some interesting speculation about Zack Britton the other day. He's in his walk year with Baltimore, and they will not be bringing him back. He could be a good low cost, short term option.

Unless the right deal comes along, I wouldn't be hurt to see them stay the course this season. It won't always be pleasant to watch, but I don't want them to sell the farm for a guy that can't be a long term answer. We're close, but not quite there yet.

Atlanta has to look pretty nice from there.

I don't see the Braves making ANY trades for a player in their walk year. Just too risky to give up good prospects for a player that may not be back next season. I know I mentioned it earlier, but I have read somewhere that Kimbrel is high on AA's shopping list this off season. Not sure if they can compete with the money the BoSox or Yankee's might throw his way though...

Terrible call(s). Yes, we need a stopper and another good arm in the pen.

Need starters to go deeper. Bullpen will be shot by the all-star break. Bullpen not deep enough to continually cover four innings every night.

The pitching game has changed over the past 20 years. Pitchers used to go 8 unless they were having an awful outing. Now they go on pitch counts and are in many cases, done before the end of the 6th.

I understand why, but that is a lot of innings to backfill. I believe whoever figures this out best is going to be out front for a while.

I will withhold any further judgement on this team, until the All Star break. Like what I am seeing so far.

Even then, they miss calls for the falcons, but they are still more fair in their judgement. I guess they just don't like sports teams from Georgia, lol.

It seems the plan is for Gohara to pitch 2-3 innings out of the pen when needed and possibly bring Allard up to either pair up with Gohara as a long reliever, or move Sanchez to the pen when he comes back and have two long relievers.

I've also seen where Winkler may be getting some closer opportunities soon. Seems Winkler, Carle and Freeman are the only dependable true relievers we have and Freeman has already been used a ton.

Nice having McCarthy back in good form with a fine win like his 1st two wins. Glad the bullpen held it together, but I get nervous when Vizcaino comes in to close the game out, doing better this time than blowing the previous game.



Time = 2:56

Good win last night. You think Ozzie Albies has ever hit a ball to the outfield that he didn't think he could stretch into at least a double?

That kid is thinking two out of the box on anything that touches the outfield grass. He is one of the most fun players to watch that I've seen in a long time.

If they are staying put with the pen for now, Winkler would be my choice.

Another great win!
