Opening Day in Atlanta...finally! In looking at these match-ups, each team's batters have crushed the opposing team's pitcher. So today could get wildly out of hand with the runs. Of course, having said that the game will probably be a pitchers duel. If you're going to the game dress for winter - it's going to be coooold. From our Redman Plug:
"It's going to be chilly, especially at 7:30 [p.m.]," said Redman, scheduled to face Mets lefty Oliver Perez in tonight's opener at Turner Field. "But I think the blood will be pumping pretty good, so I'll probably stay warm."

Redman is a large fellow, especially in the upper body, so he should be able to keep warm. Perez on the other hand is a spindly little pitcher who might get cold quickly. I wonder if body size will come into play tonight. Hopefully we can keep the sweep train rolling against the Mets. We annihilated the Phillies and their bullpen so badly that they had to go and trade for more relief help - after only three games!
