    Braves/cards ov 9 ev

    Taking a leap of faith that cards offense will actually score some runs vs a pitcher they havnt seen and not a ton of mlb film on yet... normally i donít trust cards to score runs in these spots (see under on wed vs tribe rookie) but I think this kid Max Freid sets up well for us. While cards numbers are down again vs lhp they still a lineup that is stacked w righties of which several hit southpaws well. Freid basically fastball/sinker and curve so shouldnít be a lot of surprises. He walking 5.7 guys per 9 and allowing 2.45 bombs per 9 which plays right into cards hands. His hard contact rate is incredibly high and he sporting maybe the lowest soft contact rate Iíve ever seen!!! Not only do I think cards can knock him around a little I also donít suspect he will be able to go much deeper than the 5th inning which leaves a lot of a braves pen that been struggling of late.

    I believe cards offense gonna have to hang a big number if they want any chance to win as weaver has not pitched well this season. Luke doesnít have a quality start all month and only 3 or so all season. This month he hasnít been able to go more than 5.1 innings in any start and has allowed 4 runs in 3 of his 5 starts. This will be the best offense he will have faced in this stretch so I just donít see him being able to navigate his way thru this braves lineup without getting dinged up. Cards pen has really started rounding into form but like braves I believe they will be asked to get at least 9 outs and more likely 10-12. I like both teams to score 4 minimum in a game I think we see around 6-4. Gl everyone

    Well cards offense continues to suck but weaver got shelled as advertised. As Archie would say, good texture to this one so far!

    Not exactly the way I drew it up w cards bats not producing shit but weaver got shelled even worse than expected. Cash that bitch!!

    Might as well play another.

    Pirates/pads over 7.5 +105.. who the fukk are these 2 pitchers to be getting a 7 run total? This ainít exactly kershaw vs degrom here!!

    Meh. Iíd be lying if I said I thought we be cashing while cards getting blanked yet again. God we are a mess! This Fried kid had a 45% hard contact rate coming into this game plus walking almost 6 per 9 and allowing 2.45 bombs per 9 yet all he does is piss all over us for 6.2 innings of shutout ball w 11kís! And honestly donít think we hit one ball all that hard.. just lucky weaver got shelled even harder than expected!! Lol. Iíll take it.
