    What a good game!! Ramirez got injured, Dodgers got picked off one by one. And Villareal is now leading the league in wins . Today will be Jorge Sosa vrs. Noah Lowry. Nobody knows if Sosa last year was a big fluke or because of Mazzone, but we'll find out. Noah Lowry had a .500 record with a lot of K's, a lot for a no.3 starter indeed. But Sosa had a 13-3 record with a tremendous era. So today I expect Sosa to pitch 6-8 innings picking up the win, if not Villarreal. But Lowry is also a good pitcher racking up 7.56 k's in nine innings. Today I'm on the braves side with pitching.
    Except for one big thing BARRY BONDS!!! That steroid taking piece of crap... Forget him. So anyways I think the score will end up being 6-2 Braves. We got root for the Braves today!!!!

        Thanks for asking Mattingly, it's been a good one. Winning a series against a team with pretty good players is a good feeling. I'm not quite sure about this game though. Giants are rallying now.

          You're welcome. What about the past series did you like and not like? Pitching, defense, hitting, patience at the plate, managing. What things did you notice were good or improved upon from last season, and which bad habits from last year did you see repeat themselves?

          For the Yanks, I've been complaining endlessly about an inability to drive in a few guys on base when we're down by 1-2 runs or tied. It just never seems to happen. Anything similiar with you guys 'n' gals?

            Well so far the Braves starter have an ERA of 13.19, enough said about that. The the bullpen is starting to come together, tonight against the Giants after Sosa came out the bullpen didn't allow a hit until the eighth inning I think.

            But the Braves still lost tonight, 6 to 5 I think.

            Trend wise, LaRoche is still bad against lefties, Giles is doing pretty well in leadoff, McCann is off on a solid start, Francoeur likes to go hitless and hit into double plays after Andruw gets on base.

            If the starters rebounds I think the team will be in good shape.

              Uh Oh...

              Chipper returns: After missing Wednesday night's game because of a strained abdominal muscle, Chipper Jones was back in Thursday afternoon's lineup. He began feeling the ailment while fielding a couple of fly balls in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.
              I know its about Chipper returning, but if he's straining muscles this early in the season... that worries me about Chipper being able to make it through the whole season and be productive.

              Least it wasn't his foot....

                  Well, we know our offense is good, but our pitching has proved to be highly ineffective. I'm glad no one has mentioned the pitching coach change yet, I don't feel that is it, it is more the pitchers not having their best stuff.

                    Tough game today...Hudson struggled early, and again, the bullpen had to work a good stretch of the game.

                    Devine threw two wild pitches (one of which scored a run) and walked four (including one with the bases loaded) after striking out the first batter.

                    Pitching:
                    Code:

                    James 	2.0	1	0	0	1	2	0	0.00
                    Remlinger 1.0	0	0	0	0	0	0	0.00
                    Devine 	0.2	3	4	4	4	1	0	63.00

                        Starters going 11.57 is very unexpected to say the least. It's not like one or two pitchers struggling but everybody. So far it's making me want to


                        I think Smoltz is going to grab the bull by the horns today and pitch a great game.

                        Relief w/ Cormier, Villarreal, James, Remlinger has been excellent and Reitsma has done well overall. Devine seems to have lost all confidence.

                        Team is batting close to .300 and scoring 8 runs a game.

                        Coming back home 4-3 is not that bad, and hopefully with a string of 6 home games some things can get corrected before heading back out on the road for 9 games.

                          Coming back home with that record the way the Starters have been is not that bad. Its nice at least to see the offense going out there. The Braves scored what, 48 runs on that trip? Pretty nice.

                          Other then Devine, its encouraging to see the bullpen closing it down fairly well considering how worried people were about the relievers before the season.

                          At this rate the Braves are going to turn into the Reds.

                            I'm back, it was a fun vacation. Today's matchup will be former Cy Young John Smoltz vs. Former Brave Jason Schmidt. I would rank Smoltz and Schmidt in the top 20 top strikeout pitchers alive. So this is going to be a tough outing for the braves.

                                Yup.

                                It's looking to me like Ken Ray should be our closer !
