From previous blog> #16 is Evan Gattis? I’ll have to look him up.

the Lobberday lineup? Looks good to me, albeit I think I’d have sat Miggy today. Just because he hit 2 homers yesterday doesn’t mean his ankle is better. postseason homers are what we need from miggy….

Gattis is a catcher with Atlanta. Do the Braves have a better catcher?

The key for Kyle may be to keep Brantley and Santana off the bases. No easy task.

What did I tell you? Brantley and Santana. GD

Ugh. No clutch hit again with bases loaded.

They can hit but not when it really counts. 2 more stranded.

oh boy. Seven, that’s 7 runners left on in the last 3 innings. No support for KL who is hanging in there. I felt it coming after last night. Should have saved some of those runs for this game.

9…..Nine. Makes it all the worse that I seem to be here suffering all alone.


knock – knock
