Jimmy Vaccaro Says Fans Of The Braves Need To Relax As Season Approaches
Evangelist Billy Graham said it. Athletes say it. Coaches say it. You can bet the bookies say it.
“The best ability is availability.”
And, day-to-day this baseball season, we just don’t know who will be available….
…Legendary Las Vegas bookmaker Jimmy Vaccaro, the senior linemaker at South Point, asked me to comfort Braves fans. It’s early, so breathe, and maybe discount the Braves 1 1/2 games in this short season without Freeman, if he decides to sit out, Vaccaro said. (Freeman’s Wins Above Replacement Value in 2019 was 4.0 while playing hurt, according to Baseball Reference).
