I just want September to get here already. I want to see the young guys called up (Mallex Smith, Bethancourt, Olivera (albeit not that young), Tyrell Jenkins perhaps) and see what they can do. It's becoming painful to watch lately, although I am enjoying getting closer to a Top 5 draft pick!! LOL

You better hope this team doesn't suddenly surge a bit in September, as there a lot of teams clumped near the bottom. A #5 or #6 overall pick can turn into a #8 or #9 pick in a hurry.

Default Game #122 (2015-08-21, 16:05): Cubs 5, Braves 3

Nick Markakis batted in two runs and scored one himself. Unfortunately for the Braves, three runs were not enough in their 5-3 loss against the Cubs. The Braves have lost five consecutive games.

Shelby Miller (5-10) six hits, allowed five runs, three of those earned and one a home run, and completed eight strikeouts through six and one-third innings.

That is correct. His record should not be indicative he is a bad pitcher. He has had several good quality starts that were ruined by a constant lack of run production and a bullpen away without leave.
