Lance Lynn had himself a nice little spring outing Thursday, striking out 10 Braves in four innings including 8 straight.

Really Braves? 8 straight strike outs? That wasn’t Tom Seaver out there, you know.

Braves must have had early dinner reservations. Or maybe they just didn’t want the Cardinals’ fielders getting any practice.

Maybe they are trying to destroy Lance Lynn by making him become over-confident.

Or maybe Lance Lynn really is that good. Maybe he’s Nolan Ryan now.

I don’t think so though. I think the Braves just wanted to get back inside the clubhouse and play some Playstation.
