I love it but I'll have to stick with the AR platform until 30-round+ mags become available in 10mm. Then I will be truly tempted.
The limited mag options are the main deterrent for me right now
It's a mentality thing usually if someone struggles from a different spot in the order. Not an ability thing
It can also be who hits behind them, if anyone is on base, etc. These things change how a pitcher pitches and if that increases Nick’s chances of getting a hit then I say let it ride and keep him at cleanup
Absolutely, I also don't understand the logic behind markakis being a better leadoff hitter than freeman would be. Not saying I think he should hit there, but I don't think it's markakis and "Not even close"
I think if Ender keeps up what he’s been doing then throw him into the leadoff spot otherwise keep everything the same

If anyone is gullible enough to believe this bullshit act they deserve everything bad that happens to them
What are their feelings on pizza?
Poor people love pizza; rich people love pizza. White people love pizza; black people love pizza..... Do black people like pizza?
FUCKING. LIT. FAM. HERES TO ALL OF US WHO WATCHED 162 GAMES OF BAD BASEBALL BEACAUSE WE LOVE THEM BRAVOS!!!!!!
MORE LIKE 162x4. WE HAVEN’T BEEN GOOD SINCE 2013 BUT IT LOOKS LIKE WE’RE BACK BABY!!!!
Everytime the braves win, the gNats get no closer to the NL east lead.
We control our own destiny
Camargo sure went off today. Love to see him do well. I hope he keeps it up. Also Ender finally seems to be returning to his usual self
Oh fuck. My neighbor feeds the homeless every week, is he a supervillain?
I hope your door has a good deadbolt. That neighbor’s on a rampage
Holy shit, did you give it water too? I'm noticing a trend here...
Yep. Come to think of it, we fed every Mike and they’ve all died. When will we learn!!!

Would it be stupid to keep playing Charlie in left and put Acuna in center???
He has been playing great both on defense and at the plate lately
Braves have played 36.6% of their games against the top 36 pitchers (based on fWAR). This produces a record of 18-8 (winning 69.2% of the time). The record for these top 36 pitchers against the Braves is 5-14 (the bullpens are not the usual reason for a Braves win).
Braves are hitting .248/.291/.379. This is not bad, but it does mean that our pitchers have been going toe to toe against the season's elite.
Also, Folty ranks 12th on the fWAR list, while Newcomb is 22nd.
You could add Soroka in there somewhere if he played as well as he has been and started with us at the beginning of the season. We’ll see if he regresses but we can expect him to keep stacking up WAR if he continues his performance at the current rate
I like it for how simple it is, while still catching some underlying things that ERA misses.
I also like game score for starters and it doesn’t get the love it deserves. Sure the formula may not be perfect but it’s a very quick way to assess a starter’s performance in one game
I don't know what to do with my hands

He said roll tide to me when I was lined up for pregame at the 2011 national championship game. The very next year the same happened to my wife when she was on the sideline for the halftime show in Miami. Not really extended interactions but he definitely seemed like a nice guy to both of us
Ive always thought Belt has a really nice swing, despite being a pull hitter. Still, nothing beats watching Freddie's oppo swing.
Or his pull swing, or his dead center swing, or his smile...
It was only a matter of time. Remember when everyone said Saban’s era was over and we are moving on to the Kirby Smart era? Not so fast!
Kimbrel's gonna get paid a lot more than he's worth and I hope the Braves aren't the ones to do that as much as I'd love to have him back. A trade for Hand would be awesome though, and that team buyout is nice security.
It’s worth a shot to see if Craig would offer a hometown discount but I agree with you about overpaying for a closer
That sweet, hot, first gulp of hose water.
And the delicious crunch of soil because you were too thirsty to let it run the dirt out first
That's an outdated stat pitcher beers are much more reflective of their ability
Ohtani has so many pitcher beers because has unusually strong keg tapstrings
But do we have 40% of the worlds gun crime? Nope.
But someone from the UK told me that 6 billion people a minute die from wild gun crime in America whereas the average Brit lives to be 9000 years old
Lmao, after reading this answer from a British person on why it's actually a good thing that they aren't allowed to defend themselves, I've decided I don't give a shit about what they think anymore.
Oof. This really activates the almonds
It’s good to be king
Just be glad Kyler decided not to do the smart thing and play baseball right away.
To be fair, he actually stands a chance at double digit wins if he stays in Oklahoma instead of going to Oakland
This is damn near what happens every time it goes to New York.

Had high hopes for this click and yet it just let me down.
I had low hopes and I was still let down
Love the hat
The thing is, playing against trout means you get to play against the rest of the Angels, which can often be good for your pitching staff's numbers
Well now you have a point there
He’s also shaved his wRC+ back quite a bit. Harper to the O’s?
The former would be much more ideal. Can't believe we're currently multiple games up, and the highest up in the league. Couldn't have guessed this preseason.
It’s truly been a wonderful surprise. Hope it lasts
