Open thread, 6/7, Braves vs. Fernandomania

The excitement over Yasiel Puig hasn’t quite reached the heights of Fernandomania, but it’s getting there.

Of more concern to the Braves is another pudgy southpaw, Hyun-Jin Ryu, who has quietly developed into on the NL’s better starters, posting a 2.89 ERA and 67/22 K/BB ratio in 71 1/3 IP. His control deserted him in his start against the Braves a few weeks back, so hopefully the Braves can work some deep counts tonight, as the Dodgers bullpen is shaky.

The good news for Ryu: Fan Uggla is in the line-up At least Fredi doesn’t have him batting ahead of Chris Johnson. Gattis gets the start behind the plate, hitting 5th.
