I miss the days when TBS carried all the Braves games, so I could watch all 12 (at the time) games we played them.

Should be a competitive series. The Cards are familiar with Harang, and Waino will pitch the last game, so there's a decent change of winning this series. The Braves were just swept at home by the Giants and have lost 6 consecutive games, so they'll be looking to bounce back this week against us.

Battle of two struggling teams. Pittsburgh is struggling mightily as we head there for the weekend.

Anyone know the umpire assignments? So I can be prepared for us getting screwed over in advanced.flushed

I'm not one to piss and moan about the umps but we've had some weird stuff go on down in hotlanta the past 20 years in the regular season.

Will this be the game that your league leader in FIP and SIERA gets blown to smithereens? Or will Shelby continue to defy the odds and confuse the number crunchers as he strands a small nation worth of baserunners? Find out next on ESPN's Milleroulette.

Also special on tonight's episode: The rare bird Bourjos makes an appearance while Yadier Molina gets a controversial start in the two hole.

That was quite a lead-in for tonight's game. Nicely done, DMENS! I'm contemplating call the action if anyone is in need. The first "yea" or "nay" will decide that matter. Anyone have an opinion on PBP for tonight?

Looks like nobody needs PBP this evening. Let's get em Shelby! I'm calling this one 9-4 Birds with Bourjos playing a little long ball this evening.

Hopefully this is the series the Cardinals solve their hitting funk and put up a crooked number for the first time this season. We need one of those and it's just the time to do it against Harang whom we've hit off well in the past.

Man, Shelby's control is bad. I still think he's going to be a candidate to head down to Memphis when Garcia gets back. He needs to get his secondary stuff to be more consistent so he's not so reliant on his fastball, which everyone is looking for.

Miller needs to be careful if he's going to walk as many as he did in his last start. Braves are a home run hitting team and if they hit a lot of them this could be a wide marginal game on the Braves side.

Ugh, Bourjos took a bad risk there and it bit him.

Shelby worked out of another jam without allowing a run.

Quite a few empty seats in Atlanta. You'd think with St. Louis in town, there would be a much better showing. How this city pried the basketball Hawks away years ago is a mystery as St. Louis is so much the better sports town.

25 pitch 1st inning.....that's on pace to deliver 225 pitches if he goes the distance and MM and Lilliquist fall asleep before the 4th inning concludes.

He's been one of the better pitcher the past few weeks and has just as high of an upside as Wacha. He isn't going anywhere. Lynn is overly reliant on his fastball. Both guys don't really need their secondary stuff along as they continue to have the kind of success they've had relying mostly on their big bowling ball fastballs.
