Today’s game is always the most interesting type… coming off a loss. I’m interested in seeing El Duque not allow a loss yesterday to turn into a losing streak today. The weather report for Atlanta says 54 degrees, partly cloudy, with little wind. That’ll be a welcome change from yesterday.
Mike Pelfrey really should be starting this game. I know they left him off the roster because of the abundance of off-days, and Glavine likes to stay on his regimen of pitching every five days. They should have held Hernandez until tomorrow.
Kyle Davies goes for the Braves today. He’s only 23 years old but he was awful for the Braves last year in 14 starts. He was 3-7 with a 8.83 ERA. Yikes! He’s another one these local guys that the Braves seem to love, he’s from Decatur, GA.
