    Braves Hot damn!!!

    Pre season game on today. Braves at Cards. Won't see many of the reg Braves--WBC and a few injuries. I would guess we'll see 4 of the starters in the game today.

    Garcia left game with with leg tightness.

    It will be fun seeing some of the young guys who are the future.

    And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
    The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
    Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

    Adonis and Flowers were the only 2 reg Braves from last year to play. Good to see Albies get some time, and a bunch of guys who might make it in the future.

    Camargo playing his way back down to the minors, and down in the minors. Made his 6th error on Wed then lost a ball in the sun and it fell at his feet.

    Dickey went 4.1 giving up 8 hits, 6 runs(5 ER), 2 BB, 3 Ks, 78 pitches, 46 for strikes

    Michah Johnson had his slim hope to make roster set back by wrist injury making a diving catch a couple of days ago.

    Saw this game. Kinda disappointed that the regs didn't play, but I do like seeing the prospects(the ones that played) play. I think Camargo will be a fine addition to the bench when they give him a call to the majors. Would like to see him cut down on the errors, obviously, but I still think he will be able to spell someone if an injury happens.

    Dickey is not giving me confidence at all. Maybe it's just the Spring and throwing less knuckleballs than normal. Maybe he should be the #4 or #5 in the rotation.

    Folty is tearing it up this Spring..yes, I understand it's Spring and I try not to get too excited about Spring stats, but I do believe he was turning the corner at the end of last season. So this gives hope that he is putting it all together.

    According to the Braves page, the game today should be on TV. I hope it is.

    Yep, it's on. Saw Freddie get the Braves 1st hit in 1st, single. Had to go pick up some prescriptions and when I returned it was 4-0 Cards. Braves made 2 errors behind Julio who had given up only 3 hits in 4 IP. Final line was 5 IP, 6 hits, 4 runs(3 ER), 1 BB, 3 Ks, 79 pitches, 57 strikes.

    Braves sloppy 3rd making 2 errors.

    Braves started Dansby at SS, Phillips at 2B, Freddie at 1st, Kemp in LF, Markakis in RF, Flowers behind the plate.

    Braves trying to come back scoring 2 runs in bot 6th. Runner at 3rd, 2 outs, but Ruiz fouls out to 1st.

    Going to Top 7th it's 1-1 on HRs by Freddie and Castellanos. Braves have 2 hits vs Verlander. Garcia went 5.2 IP, 1 ER, 5 hits, 1 BB, 4 Ks. 86 pitches, 50 strikes.

    Wisler in to throw 7th inning.

    OH WOW!!!!!!!

    Phillips with diving backhand stop, behind the back toss to Dansby to start 4-6-3 DP

    It's going to be a great season watching Phillips and Swanson make DPs.
