What? Isn't Flaherty the second coming of Chipper Jones? Listening to the Braves announcers, you'd think so.

Since 4/10, JP has gone 7/18 with 2 BBs, 2Ks and 2 HRs including hits in 5 straight from 4/10 to 4/16.

SSS, I know, but what's he got to do to get out of the 9th spot?

Calvin, I'm sorry I posted that ugly line-up again but it's the only one I could find. Forgive me.

he's there as a second leadoff hitter of sorts. that's probably exactly what they're looking for from the 9 hole.

Dumb. The 2 hole hitter is the "2nd leadoff hitter". As it stands, the pitcher and catcher are getting more ABs than the 9th hitter.

He’s hit in multiple spots and the offense has been fine.

Teams lie, sometimes for good reasons, sometimes for bad. They do it to get an advantage while they look at the trade market or just because they can

From ESPN comments:

This is a great move for the Braves in case they need someone to get punched in the face.


I think they're pretty well covered in that regard.
