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!
 
Oz and Ocuna are the future and it looks brighter than it has in a long long time. Glad we were up enough ( 4-1 ) to stick Viz. back out there to close it. That's the only way to get his confidence back. We have some problem areas and are still in 1st place.
 
How are they gonna pay for all of these young studs when pay time comes is a good question too. Ill enjoy it while we are getting acuna and albies to kill it for us for pre arb pay lol :yeah:

Get Fox Sports out there to his house, I'd watch that!

I know it's random, but if Albies doesn't hit for the cycle this season I'd be shocked.

Don't have to worry about that for 6-7 years. And the Braves will likely sign them to extensions that will buy out their arbitration years.

Lester on the mound for the Cubbies tonight. I hope Ozzie and Ender bunt his "no-fielding" behind to death.

They way he throws to first, I'd imagine even Snitker could get a running lead on him...
