Cool, Riggs is about to burn Hairston Jr. for a few swings in the on deck circle.

What's the point of having Stairs just to pinch hit Nix. WTF

this is what happens when you don't bring your best 25 to Opening Day, and you play Options games and pick "veterans" instead.

How can you blame Riggs for Nix going up there and swinging at two pitches that were balls?

For putting him up there in what will probably be a decisive moment in the game when he had Matt Stairs on the bench, the guy that was brought in for those exact situations.  The bad at-bat is on Nix, the decision to put him there is on Riggs.

Desmond leads off an inning for the fourth time today.  Results so far? 0-3, 2 Ks =|

If Riggs sends Stairs up there the Braves pitch around him with 1st open.  Now if you are saying why is Nix on the roster, I get it.

Saving him for when the Braves HAVE to pitch to him, 1st base was open.
