    All I heard on the drive home yesterday was how Winker doesn't have enough power to probably play a corner outfield spot and then he hits a home run last night. Made me chuckle, even though what was said yesterday probably wasn't inaccurate.

    Not only did he hit a HR, but he had another one that was robbed by Marte.

    Braves called up 2b from AAA and told him he is starting the rest of the year. Told Brandon he is done unless he is willing to move to 3rd.

    As good as Marte's catch was...it wasn't even the best of the night. Did you see Austin Jackson's catch for the Tribe in Boston?

    Glad to see Winker finally getting an opportunity...and producing.

    Winker is exactly what you need at the top of the order. He's just a pure hitter with a great feel at the plate. Glad to see him no longer rotting away in AAA. Hopefully when Schebler returns he is given a bench role.

    Sure looks like Winker has some pop in that swing. Turned the game on one pitch before his HR.
