As for the amount of TJS occurring, I've seen a few theories on it. Saw the one Cockypantherfan mentioned from Kurkjian. Saw one where they think that it's not learning breaking balls too young, but that kids are playing more year round and not really giving their arm/elbow enough time to recover. That just builds up over the years and eventually something happens. Saw another report where they conjectured it was going to be something that's cyclicle.

Have no idea what the reason and solution is, but it is alarming how often it's occurring.

Damn, I bet that knot on his elbow was from a bone chip then. I'm glad it wasn't the ligament though.

Recalled reliever Ryan Buchter from Gwinnett to take Floyd's roster spot.

With a day off next week, we won't need another starter until the doubleheader with the Phillies on the 28th. Wood should get another start for Gwinnett on the 23rd to help get him stretched out before rejoining the team.

I just wanted to say that I think you guys have a mental lock on the Nats. This is coming from a Nats fan. That isn't saying you aren't talented but there is some mental edge it seems that the Braves play with against the Nats.

What do you guys think?

It's karma for the years that the only team the expos/nats seemed to beat was the braves.

Sometimes you just play well against a certain team. Don't know the reason for it, but I'm not complaining! I saw a Dave O'Brien tweet earlier today that the Braves are 23-7 over the last 30 games against the Nats. Not too shabby.

Yeah. Since like August of 2012 the Braves have owned the Nats. DC sports talk today kept saying the Nats need to prove to themselves they can beat the Braves to be a real contender for the playoffs and possible World Series birth. I just was just curious what Atlanta fans thoughts were.

Yeah, but in 2011 the Nats played a large part in eliminating the Braves from playoff contention, IIRC.

We lost 5 straight to end that season. Lost 2 to the Nats, then the Phillies swept a 3 game series. I think we had a 2 game lead in the WC race, but wound up a game back of the Cards for the WC.

It didn't matter who we played. We were cursed. Remember, in Miami with about a week to go, Chipper lost a grounder in the lights at Sun Life Stadium with 2 outs and then Omar Infante hit a walkoff HR off of Kimbrel in the next AB with 2 outs. We were doomed then.

Back to this. Water is wet, sky is blue, God is great, beer is good, people are crazy, and the Braves own Strasburg and the Nationals.
