1st and 3rd, one out. Time for a DP grounder.

Harris has a better arm than Robles but as a rookie already has more common sense to just throw that to second. Do the Braves draft smarter players or just develop them better?

Thomas and Garcia walk in the same inning. What are the odds of that.

Might be safe. Bad call to run with a pitcher who can’t find the strike zone though

Harris has a better arm than Robles but as a rookie already has more common sense to just throw that to second. Do the Braves draft smarter players or just develop them better?

Maybe all of that, plus less arrogant.  I remember seeing Robles with the P-Nats and my biggest concern being that he had far, far too much smug swagger for a dude in A ball.  Pimping homers is one thing; strutting around after throwing a ball in on a single to center is another.  It presents a barrier to actually learning.  He's just a stupid, arrogant player who doesn't seem to let reality dent his self-appraisal.

But I don't think the crap-for-brains that is Victor Robles is more than a one-off.  Most of it is development, some of it is drafting/signing.  It's a pretty jarring contrast with Harris, though, who has always been a smart player from when I first saw him in high A.

True or false: Garcia once made a throwing error while DHing.

That's funny.  After Frandsen said Carl never loses his cool, he does.
