I probably root for the NL East survivor against all other teams except the Twinkies.

Two of the most fantastic throws you will see by catchers. Let them share a gold glove.

Whats it like to have a catcher who can throw out base stealers?

Hope Keibert was watching.  He may never be that good but no reason he cannot improve his defense.

Alvarado is the 6th. Bold move.

I looked up and said to myself, "I have no idea who this pitcher is." Turns out it's not surprising, given this was the 4th MLB inning he's ever pitched.

Thompson is basically emptying the tank and hoping the Phils have a big enough lead in the 8th and 9th.

Also, with tomorrow off (for some freaking reason?), this is basically a must win game. Phils come out if this with a win, they have Wheeler and Nola on normal rest with a rested pen

Well Keibert wouldn’t do that.

Classy Atlanta fans.

Phillies luck is running out. Not sure why you'd go to Strahm here

That was some kind of play by Turner.   I have a hard time not hoping a bit for Trea/Bryce/Kyle.

I know folks are down on the contract,  but I think his overall skills hold up even if he drops to just 15-20 SBs

Four a couple years maybe. But usually its not just the legs that go

There are going to be dead years on that contract.   If he contributes to them getting past the Braves for a few years, then it is a lot easier to eat the end years.

Thomson pushed all the right buttons even when he didn’t push the right buttons.

Nice to see the Braves strategy of having intrasquad practice games helped their hitting.

They have Bryce for years also. A couple more years of Schwarber and Castellanos. No reason to not go all in.  I think Trea could move back to the OF eventually.  Some guys can continue to hit into their late 30s. Some don’t. I think Bryce will. Not sure about Trea. But who really knows.

Diamondbacks came into the playoffs limping after that last series against the Astros.  So much for momentum.
