and yet, FP thought it was a good idea and possibly beneficial for the braves to score the 4th run so that Blevins could enter the game instead of Melancon.

That’s probably it in terms of division title hopes. Best we can do from here is be five back by the end of the weekend.

Too little too late boys.  Let me know when you can get a run or two against quality starting pitching.

The division was always a pipedream. Focus on October 1st and packing Nats Park.

By the same token, the Barves are the foremost authorities in the universe when it comes to September standing suicide...so there is that.

Honestly, the best way to focus on Oct 1 is to play out the rest of the schedule like it is do or die and try to keep winning at a high rate.  Conceding the division, setting up pitchers, resting guys is probably the worst preparation possible..... Hopefully we pack the park though!

Packing the park seems irrelevant. Rays made it to the WS and they couldn't pack their park.

Why do we not play our best players in these games?   Zimmerman should have stared.   Taylor should never even be given a thought to start in this game.

I don't think Zimmerman can go every day.   I don't know that Parra is better than MAT, and Eaton can't play a whole game.
