(From Thursday night)
David O'Brien@DOBrienATL Adam Duvall leads the majors in homers with runners on base, with 20 (of his 30 total). Next is Vlad Guerrero Jr. with 19, and Salvador Perez with 18. Second-most in the NL is Pete Alonso's 17.
Shohei Ohtani leads the majors with 42 homers, 26 with bases empty. 1 7 114
David O'Brien @dobrienatl Duvall said that was probably the longest homer he's hit. Some of us thought 477 ft. seemed a conservative estimate. There've been 490-foot homers this year, and that looked every bit as long as those. Not that it matters, of course. Suffice to say, it was crushed and important. 5 11 246
David O'Brien @dobrienatl Five of Adam Duvall's 10 hits (in 45 at-bats) at Coors Field have been homers. Also has a couple of doubles. So, three singles, two doubles, five homers in 45 ABs.

*** WEATHER UPDATE *** METMAN WEATHER SERVICES 3 September 2021 4:35 PM EDT Denver Metro Area BRAVES GAME FORECAST (8:40 PM EDT)
Game Time Forecast: Partly cloudy with temperatures in the mid 70's dropping to the mid 60's by 10 PM local time. A stray shower is possible. Showers will be around, especially to the east. Winds variable at 3-7 MPH. Max gust is 15 MPH. Little to no measurable precipitation is expected.
I hate to be the grim reaper but we have not seen Langliers in AAA yet. But no question about the overall progress he has made and it looks like he might be a better hitter than projected. He might even be ready in the middle of next yr
Is it realistic to expect him to skip AAA? That is something we have to wait and see
By 2023 should we expect him to be able to play 110 games by then? Does not seem unreasonable
I do hope and expect that Pache will succeed in his next chance. But do we want to take the chance and hand him the keys to center next yr without insurance of something proven just in case? We know it did not work this yr but next yr? Fair question.
Always be aware where the brakes are when it comes to prospects - Acuna was one of the very few that gave excitement right away and did not tail off.
