Palo Alto high school graduate, baby.
Palo Alto has a great baseball program. The word on him as he came up was that he couldn't hit breaking stuff. He has adjusted well enough though.

Outs in the post-season are like gold. So hard to get...

as I edited in the OP, I think Rich Hill is slated for game 4. Atlanta.... I might throw Folty on short rest.

Rich Hill's disgust at homeplate umpire Tom Hallion is palpable. And not entirely justified. Its also amusing.

Culberson didn’t completely
lay out for that-might have saved a run if he’d kept it in the infield. Aha, embedded Dodger.
His bigger crime was just swinging at a ball at the top of the zone for an easy pop-out. ABs like that are infuriating.

Frank Sobotka...er, I mean Chad, with the Braves season in the balance here. And SemperFidelisSox least favorite player on the Dodgers jacks a three run bomb. That's why they brought him here...

I'm listening to Atlanta's radio guys, and they're already so detached from the Braves impending doom that they called Machado's 3-run homer like it was a single in a spring training game.

I just noticed FOX assigned Smoltz for the Braves, but TBS wouldn't give us Don or Eck. Lame.
