Souza, 25, has been a revelation in his eighth professional season, having finally polished his immense raw ability. He leads the International League in hitting (.354), on-base percentage (.435), slugging percentage (.601) and RBI (70) in 91 games. Souza has also mashed 18 homers in his first season on the 40-man roster.
In other words, this post is more of a legitimate baseball post than about 75% of the crap that goes on here, so just piss off.
What's the argument against allowing articles about baseball on the NewsStand?
Come on. I am an everyday reader and very seldom poster, and I noticed the out-of-place nature of this right away. Since when are game summaries posted on the newsblog? What's 'news' about it?
The bit about going 0-9 in their last nine one-run games would've probably been a more legitimate news peg, though.
And I am the...uh...what cures cancer?
"Just bad bounces" nine times in a row is still newsworthy, IMHO.
Yes, I had forgotten about that acquisition. My condolences.
Hey idiot, there are posts on here right now with titles like "Lenny Dykstra: Out of Prison, and Still Headstrong", "Orbit and Jose Bautista Play With Dolls — Wait, What?", and "George "The Animal" Steele Mangles A Baseball".
In fairness to Heyward, who (not unreasonably) has the "injury-prone" tag stuck to his forehead, he played the last two games in San Diego and hit the hell out of the ball in both games.
If it's possible for a type of team to struggle in the post-season, this year's Braves would seem to be a great candidate.
I hate to say it, since I grew up watching the team (and because I recognize that the postseason is almost entirely a crapshoot), but....this particular Braves team seems particularly poorly suited to win a post-season series. All those high-K batters, no great base-runners, and the lack of an elite #1 starter......
I'm a little surprised they weren't in on Lester, to be honest.
What would you have had the Braves give up for him, or for another guy like Price or whoever else was dealt? The Braves plugged two gaping holes with Russell and Bonifacio, figuring that maybe they'll get lucky, but without giving up anything of consequence. Since this year is a longshot, that seems fine.
Yeah, even if they scrape together enough wins to make the WC or win the division (both of which is possible, but hardly assured) this is not a team that is going to go deep into the playoffs.
Oh, I dunno. A few good starts from the top of the rotation and swings from a bunch of guys who actually know how to, and you've got a nice playoff run. I've always been high on this team and don't think much of their division rivals.
That said, our resident BTF terrorist makes it very hard to root for them. Very, very hard.
This is hardly the first time an article about a team in a downward slide has been submitted.
No, he would root for the team that isn't the Braves or the three bad teams.
I misread that as you talking about the Nats.
You're such a ####### ass. You insist on being so shitty that even when I agree with you, I can't stand you.
With the choices being Joey happy or Sam happy, that makes for a real good meteor argument.
My team is in first place: we are awesome, you guys suck.
