Game Time: 10:05pm on

Thankfully we are now in San Diego where games start earlier... five minutes earlier. I swear, this west coast swing blows. Oh well, there will be many interviews here to keep you occupied during the day.

So that would have been a fun game to watch last night at 1am, fun indeed. Chipper became the all-time "Atlanta" Braves homerun champ, and the Braves pulled out a win against one of the best pitchers in the NL. I think the latter is really impressive since the Bravos haven't been beating the game's top pitchers. Perhaps things are changing.

Speaking of changing, our wishes keep getting granted. Langy, gone. Wilson, gone. Redman, gone. And now Pete Orr, optioned. Apparently our bullpen has been used a lot lately or something (I hadn't noticed because I've been asleep), so they recalled Joey Devine to fill in tonight until tomorrow when..................... Jo-Jo Reyes will likely be recalled to make the start! I can't freakin' wait! Luckily that game is in the afternoon and I will most likely be awake. I just hope we don't get McCarver as the "color man."
