Case Of The Road Trip Blues

by @ 5:43 pm.   Filed under braves

Man it’s been a tough few games for our Braves. The past four games we’re 1-4 and hitting only .158 and tonight could be swept by the Reds (let’s hope not).  A BIG reason for the recent skip is our leader Chipper being out with a pretty nasty bruise on his leg.  If you didn’t know, Chipper got nailed above the ankle during the Rays game Saturday. He was down for a while but went on to play four innings before Fredi pulled him.  He hasn’t played since, which sucks because I know he wants to run around those special bases the Reds made for his trip to Great American Ball Park. He did get to touch first after being walked in a pinch hit job last night, but that doesn’t count in my book. Fransisco hasn’t exactly stepped up either. Yeah he did hit a home run against the Reds, but big whoop (yeah I said big whoop) Bourn our leadoff hit two in one game and my Uggla got a second deck bomb last night, so Juan, you’re not that cool. Bat flipping fool. End rant. At least Prado has been hot during the skid, he’s hitting .463 with 7 extra base hits and a .521 OBP. That means he’s getting on base but no one is getting him in. We’ve gone from scoring 5+ runs a game to struggling to get 2. But cold streaks happen, I’m just hoping this one doesn’t last long with the Nationals coming to town tomorrow. Memorial Day weekend and a battle for the lead over the NL East, I likey.  With that being said, let’s win tonight boys, get on a plane, sleep in your own bed, and beat the poo out of the Nationals this weekend (since I’ll be in the stands).
