    BJ makes a running catch for out #1. d’Arnaud up.

  • fireboss

    Reading back, only risk on Bard is money. He’s arb eligible and unless nontendered which would seem silly now will earn a lot more than he’s been worth. Has the YIPS bad according to Boston press has no idea where the ball is going

    • cheadrick

      He’s increasingly floundered the last two years.. as I said, the Cubbies can have him.

      • fireboss

        From Sports on earth a timeline before his DFA

        http://www.sportsonearth.com/article/52030332/

        • cheadrick

          Read similar articles on him.. That looks like an interesting read. He could turn things around, but his descent hasn’t been pretty.

    • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

      That’s a good point – I imagine, then, that the Cubs will be aggressively evaluating him over the off-season… telling him that they will tender a deal if they see a reason to do so.

      Of course, this is also Theo Epstein in Chicago, now…

    A line-out and groundout ends it w/a 1/2/3 inning.
    BOTTOM OF THE NINTH coming up… gotta get the lower half of the order to do something to extend this, or we’re done.

  • fireboss

  • cheadrick

  • fireboss

    Damn it Dan go sprain an ankle will ya

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Nope. Pop-out near third. 1 down. Simmons, then Chris Johnson.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Another danged pop-out.

  • fireboss

    Simba the major league leader in infield popups shows why . Sheesh

  • cheadrick

    Popup, but Simba’s value metric just keeps going up too.

    2 down for CJ. Need a hit to extend the game. 1-2 count.

    • cheadrick

      If any Brave can do it…..

  • fireboss

    Took one right down broadway at the knees

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Not today: CJ looks at strike three (in Wally’s opinion). Braves fall 5-2.

  • cheadrick

    Well crap on a cracker!

  • cheadrick

    Aw ight gents… I’m out. Hugs and smacks!

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Well that’s a wrap… on to Philadelphia, then to Miami. Mets win this one, 5-2.

    Cheers, all!
