Actually, tonight’s opponent is Chad Bettis, just promoted from Double-A Tulsa, where he was 3-4 with a 3.71 ERA. That’s just the kind of pitcher the Braves typically struggle against, and the bats are due a slumber, but I ain’t doing pessimism this week.
The line-up is the same, which is something I hated typing a week ago but now relish it.
1. Heyward CF 2. J. Upton RF 3. Freeman 1B 4. Gattis LF 5. McCann C 6. C Johnson 3B 7. Uggla 2B 8. Simmons SS 9. Teheran P
Today’s question: Is Jay Hey a better defensive CF than B.J. I vote “yea”.
