Colby Wilson’s Atlanta Braves Report: To the farm

 

Atlanta BravesClarksville, TN – Well, the future took a bit of a setback this week.

Surprising few, the Braves sent Christian Bethancourt down to Gwinnett on Monday. Bethancourt was hitting .204 at the time and really, it’s time for a major re-evaluation when Ryan Lavarnway is considered the better bet to succeed at the major-league level. If his bat is going to be Mendoza-esque, his defense needs to be better than bottom-five in the league in errors (three) and passed balls (five) – especially since he was only catching twice a week.

He’s 23; 23-year olds get sent down when they’re struggling sometimes, even multi-time top organizational prospects who were thought to be lynchpins. He’ll go to Triple-A, get more playing time and hopefully figure out how to be serviceable with the bat and get back to the world-class defense we’ve all heard so much about.

Marlon Scott: Sports Fanalyst FourThoughts – U.S. Soccer Escapes Death and Vandy Takes The Series

 

Sports Fanalyst FourthoughtsClarksville, TN – I play fantasy football, baseball and basketball, but I am not addicted to playing fantasy sports games. I can stop, cold turkey, anytime I want to…right after fantasy tennis season is done. Here are my FourThoughts for this week.

Marlon Scott: Sports Fanalyst FourThoughts – Spurs and U.S. Soccer Winners

 

Sports Fanalyst FourthoughtsClarksville, TN – I planned to go to Brazil for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, but I heard one of my exes had become a witch doctor and was a big fan of Ghana, so I decided not to risk it. Here are my sports FourThoughts for this week.

GoSpursGo

It is no secret I am a Spurs fan. Just like heroes at the end of old kung fu movies, standing over the defeated body of the villain who killed their master, I am basking in the glow of satisfied vengeance. With three dominating performances in a row, the Spurs avenged last season’s heartbreaking loss to the Heat and became the 2013-14 NBA Champions.

Marlon Scott: Sports Fanalyst Fourthoughts – April Madness and War

 

Sports Fanalyst FourthoughtsClarksville, TN – Someone broke the watercooler at the last office party and my grapevine died in this crazy weather. So here are my Fourthoughts for this week.

March Madness Ends With Clash of the Titans: I would guess most who read the above title assumed I was referring to the showdown of Kentucky vs. Uconn for the NCAA Men’s Tournament Championship. After all, it has been a wild tournament and the storylines for these two teams have sports writers drooling like Victoria Secret came out with a new line of lingerie with the colors and logo of pro sports teams.

There is the real world, and then there is the sports world. A lot of people happily commute back and forth between the two. This is for those commuters, dressed like Clark Kent, but when they emerge from a McDonald’s bathroom (due to lack of phone booths in 2014) they have on their favorite sports jersey and foam finger, ready to talk about the latest update that just popped up from the ESPN app on their smart phone.
