One Night Only: Game Previews for August 15th

Jose Constanza provides excellent return on your entertainment dollar.

Featured Game
San Francisco (4) at Atlanta (4) | 19:00 ET
• Behold! as one team (San Francisco) attempts furiously to claw itself back to the top of the NL West.
• Behold! as a second team (Atlanta) clings furiously to its Wild Card lead.
• Continue to behold!, as pitcher Madison Bumgarner (10) is good and young and due for, like, six kinds of regression.
• Provided you still have the strength, consider beholding! the Atlanta Braves’ right field area, where maybe Jose Constanza is instead of Jason Heyward.
• Which, “multiple and conflicting emotions” is a perfectly legitimate response to that.

Alvarez vs. Pineda should be fun… Alvarez making his 2nd start… throws 95-98.
