From The Opponent's Feed™: Not-a-Homer Simpson

Braves color commentator Joe Simpson, 1995 "Georgia Sports Broadcaster of the Year," dropped several interesting nuggets of information and analysis during the Braves v. Reds series sweep ass-handing embarrassment of the Atlanta National League Base Ball Club. The Reds beat America's Team, which is exactly the kind of thing Roy Brewer, Sr. tried to quash.

Simpson had a cow over Zack Cozart:

The more I see this guy the more impressed I am with his range and athletic ability. He's gonna be a good shortstop for them.

The Reds have a big run differential in the late innings.

They said that they're plus 25 runs after the 6th inning, which is among the tops in MLB. It's always best to finish strong with explosiveness. Just ask jch.

Drew Stubbs will get a Gold Glove in his near future.

Joe would know because he's actually Dr. Emmett Brown.

Ask nicely and he might let you sneak a peek at his Sports Almanac.

Dusty Baker has plenty of choices on whom could save games.

If they move Aroldis Chapman to the rotation, they could go with a lefty-righty tandem of Sean Marshall & Jose Arredondo, and you can throw Logan Ondrusek in there as well.

Matt Latos complains on every pitch.

In his defense, they never let him sit down between pitches. Plus, he's carrying his lucky bullwhip in his left pocket.

And our EASY-OFF OVEN CLEANER™ QUOTE OF THE SERIES:

"Aroldis Chapman isn't the closer, he's the finisher...If you are Ryan Hanigan giving the signs, you might as will be wearing a mitten."
