    Could that make this man their left fielder? And if so, are there enough antacids in the world for me to endure it?

    Corey Kluber

    It’s Corey Kluber’s world. We’re all just living in it. We had no idea we were, though, because most of us don’t pay a heck of a lot of attention to Corey Kluber. Like, how are we supposed to know it’s his world anyway? What are we, psychic? Put up a sign.

    Aaron Harang was far from dominant and Andrelton Simmons made a rare pair of bad errors at shortstop, but the Braves produced 10 runs on 14 hits Saturday to beat the Diamondbacks. It was the ninth win in a row for Atlanta — the top dog in the National League East by 1 1/2 games.

    Jun 16, 2014, 10:32 AM EST

    Screen Shot 2014-06-16 at 10.31.22 AM

    He’s a catcher. And Evan Gattis’ bat is essential. So that would make Gattis an outfielder. At least in name.

    Don’t look at me that way. It’s late afternoon on a Friday that a lot of people have off work. There’s a Reds-Cubs game one. Motivation is kinda hard to come by. Besides, this is kinda mesmerizing.
