Braves - Promoted Johnson
Atlanta Braves - Recalled OF Kelly Johnson; Designated P Matt Childers for assignment.
I thought having Mondesi and Jordan in the outfield was, frankly, pretty damn retarded.
When the Braves did poorly in the ZiPS Projection simulations, I put forth 2 explanation as to why I thought they’d win 10 games. Mazzone (who I’m actually building into the Atlanta park factor for ZiPS) and the fact that the Braves tend to cut the cord on their bad experiments fairly quickly if there’s an alternate possibility.
Well, it’s almost June and the Braves still haven’t dumped the dessicated remains of Brian Jordan and Raul Mondesi. The Braves have typically overachieved in the pitching department and are wasting all their great pitching this year; they’re slumping lately, just staying ahead of the Mets, thanks to an offense literally anchored by these two rotting husks of craptastitude.
Finally, a little bit of hope - Mondesi’s knee hurts (although I guess he could have a limb amputated and it not make him play any worse) and Langerhans has somehow stolen a little playing time from Brian Jordan, who is probably an inferior player to South Park’s Jimmy Lawler.
They won’t miss Childers.
