Braves a better choice than any reality television
Before much longer, decent evening television returns, thanks to baseball. Our Atlanta Braves seem to be putting another competitive team together.
It will take a while to get used to Chipper not playing on third base. Manager Fredi Gonzalez says he has a tough decision regarding the third base position. Both Juan Francisco and Chris Johnson are doing a fine job, especially hitting. Just an idea, how about playing both at third on rotation? That would leave one on the bench to pinch hit for Dan Uggla when we really need a hit. Dan has a great glove, but his bat has not been hot for a while now. Maybe this will inspire Uggla to improve his hitting as well.
Call it armchair coaching if you wish, but it sure beats reality television for me.
