Can't wait to watch some live sports on TV. Hope everyone stays safe.

ETA - Read that Freddie is cleared to play. Glad that he seems to have recovered.

Braves managed just 3 hits vs. 15 strikeouts. That is just sad. The Mets are a bad team. One game doesn't mean much, but that was tough to watch.

I would say a few games to get the bats warm would be okay, but losing a division game in a short season is going to hurt. Soroka was great but we still have no answer for deGrom or Lugo.

Glad I forgot what time the game was on
I generally like a good pitcher's duel, but the Braves looked so lost at the plate that it just felt weak. They will win their fair share this year with their pitching and defense, and Freeman will get better as he gets his strength back, but in a short season they can't afford to fall back at all.

Well we got some help. The Marlins stung the Phillies last night, and the Nats are still going against the Yankees for 2 more games. For whatever reason the Marlins always give the Nats and Phillies so much damn problems, and the Mets always give us problems. Baseball is weird.

Lord have mercy, it’s one game. Yes I know it’s a 60 game season but still, one game. Pitchers are going to be ahead of hitters for now, hitters have to get use to the velocity again. The strikeouts suck but that has been a problem for years now. Everyone swings for the fences instead of a hit, or even a fly ball to drive in a run.

@B1GTide, why do you say the Mets are a bad team? They made some good moves to possibly fix their bullpen, I don’t think this Mets team is going to be as bad as they’ve been recently.

Anyway, this is going to be a strange year. Star players are going to constantly be on the COVID IL and teams will see a steady stream of minor league guys filling holes. Every team is going to end up playing key games with young guys in key roles. The teams that come out on top will have more of those young’s guys who actually step up and contribute in meaningful ways.

Mostly offense and defense. They can pitch, but I just don't think that they can score enough to win.
