Game Time: 1:05pm on

We've got an afternooner today in Atlanta. It's a shame too, because it should be a good pitching match-up to watch with Smoltz and Harang going after each other. I'm sure all you unemployed folks (Velcro, Rehab) will enjoy the game; heck, you might as well go to the game!

It's a damn shame we came up short yesterday. Jo-Jo pitched well, and was probably left in one inning too long, but I can understand Cox wanting to save the bullpen after they pitched nine innings the night before. I fully expect Davies to be sent down today. After the way Reyes pitched last night, he's just a better option right now.
