Open thread, 5/25, Braves vs. Marion Barrys
To quote the former mayor, “bitch set me up.”
You could see this week coming. The Braves were due a slump, half their line-up was out and the Reds, having just won a weekend series in the Bronx, were starting to play up to their potential.
What’s done is done. Time to get back to business.
Any time you’re playing the team ahead of you in your division, it’s a big series. The Braves won’t have any excuses — no team has dealt with more injuries than the Nats, which makes their early success all the more impressive.
It comes down to the pitching, The Braves have the edge tonight, with Huddy opposing Ross Detwiler. Line-ups haven’t been posted, but Freddie and B-Mac are expected back. Hopefully Chipper will return to face Strasburg tomorrow night.
