Today looks like a big ol’ nasty L in the pitching comparisons. The Braves have an opportunity to really impress me here. And honestly, they need to. They need to scrap one out. I won’t be too down on them if they don’t, but MAN do we need a pick-me up after losing 3 of the last 5.
On a happy note, the Dodgers have beaten the Cards twice in their first two games, making L.A. 8-2 over their last ten games. We’re the two.
Josh Johnson versus Halladay today. That’s the best you can ask for.
BTW, we will win the allstar game this year and for a few years to come.
Halladay, Jimenez, Lincecum, Strasburg >>> Sabathia, Greinke, etc.
Yeah, I said Strasburg. Somebody shoot me.
The over/under for homeruns Kawakami serves up in the first inning in AZ is 4.
If you want any encouraging news on Kawakami, I just discovered that in all those poor teams we faced in May, KK only pitched against the Pirates once and the DBacks once. He missed the other Pirate series, the Astros, and the Brewers.
In those games against Arizona and the Bucs, KK gave up 3 runs and 2, respectively, and the Braves won both games.
I’m ready for the bull pen. So I almost ran over an almost dead snake today, a BIG snake and just as I was passing over it my kid learned how to blow through a straw and hit the back of my neck. I almost jumped through the windshield. Go BRAVES!
