Open Thread, 8/20 Braves vs. the Rickeys
As much fun as it is to whup the Nats’ ass, I must say it’s a relief to move on from the beaning drama.
It’s also good to hear that Maholm is returning, and Fredi/Roger will use him to rest the other starters. That will be especially helpful for Minor and Julio T., presumably. Beachy goes tonight, and he’s gotten better each time out (more or less).
In other news, it’s safe to say we have a platoon in center field. Tonight’s Bravos’ starting nine: Heyward, J. Upton, Freeman, McCann, Johnson, Schafer, Simmons, Janish, Beachy.
