“Remember Kid, there are heroes and there are legends. Heroes get remembered, but legends never die.”

The Braves made a few roster moves before their crucial clout against the Washington Nationals on Thursday. Atlanta recalled Adam Duvall to add an extra offensive option for the series and beyond. They also recalled catcher Alex Jackson. Unfortunately, the reason for Jackson’s promotion was to put him on the 60-day IL to create a roster spot on the 40-man roster for their third promotion of the afternoon.


Myth will become reality as the legendary figure of stories and triumphs of ancient lore, Darren O’Day, makes his return to the majors. O’Day will likely make his first appearance since June 26, 2018, and his official Atlanta Braves debut, over the next few days. While all references to questioning his existence apply, so does the significance of O’Day’s past success. The Braves’ urgency to include O’Day as an option for their most important series of the year should confirm their desire to include him on the postseason roster. O’Day has the ability to immediately boost the Braves bullpen and become one of the best weapons for Brian Snitker to use. Hopefully, he will only add to the incredible success of the bullpen in recent weeks.

On a side note, would it not be awesome if, for his first appearance, O’Day enters with that quote from “The Sandlot” followed by Eric Bischoff’s “I’m Back” WWE Entrance Music?
