GDT Braves (56-43) vs Mets (43-52)

GDT Braves (56-43) vs Mets (43-52) 


Simmons 6, Heyward 8, JUpton 9, Freeman 3, McCann 2, Gattis 7, Uggla 4, CJohnson 5, Medlen 1


Atlanta vs. NY Mets
7:10 PM ET • Citi Field
ATL Radio: 680 AM/93.7 FM, WNNX 100.5 | ATL TV: SPSO
NYM Radio: WFAN 660/101.9 FM, WEPN 1050 | NYM TV: SNY


Kris Medlen, #54 RHP
6-9, 3.64 ERA, 86 SO
Medlen last pitched on July 12 against the Reds before the All-Star break, taking the loss. He allowed all four Cincinnati runs in four innings and has allowed at least seven hits in seven of his previous 10 outings.


Carlos Torres, #52 RHP
0-1, 0.79 ERA, 20 SO
Carlos Torres took the injured Shaun Marcum's rotation spot and thrived in his first start. Torres gave up just one run on five hits over five innings against Pittsburgh. The Mets are hoping that strong performance carries over to the second half.

Need to score some runs, Braves, as Kris has not pitched well recently.

The Braves' search for left-handed relief help has led them to San Diego, as FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports (via Twitter) that Atlanta is interested in Padres southpaw Joe Thatcher.

Thatcher, 31, has one remaining year of arbitration eligibility and is a free agent following the 2014 season.  The left-hander has a 2.25 ERA and 28 strikeouts (against just four walks) over 28 innings for the Padres this season.  Thatcher has held left-handed hitters to only a .456 OPS this season and for his career, Thatcher has held lefty batters to a .581 OPS.

Mike Gonzalez, James Russell and Wesley Wright have been the lefty relievers rumored to be atop the Braves' wish list, and the club has also been linked to Phil Coke and Brian Duensing.

Can't hit mediocre pitching, you can't win.

I hope I don't get in trouble, but our hitting coach needs to go.  For this offense on paper, they are not doing what they should be doing.  I really don't think he is doing anything.  If you can't light up this mediocre pitching something is wrong.

We are over a half a season and we are STILL having issues.  We should have a 15 game lead or more considering the teams behind us are even WORSE.  You need to take advantage or I need to remind you of what St Louis did to us a few years ago as we struggled.

Braves are #3 in wOBA, behind Cards and Rockies.  Low offense era.

It appears that there is a lack of leadership with this team. 

None of us knows what goes on in the clubhouse but in the past we would have heard by now of a players only meeting.

Does Fredi have the respect of his players like Cox did?  Who knows but you have to acknowledge that carryover exists.  Cox did this Fredi does that.

Cards have a great lineup.  And Rockies have the altitude.  I'm not sure we should be above those two on paper.
