Snakes @ Braves: Mullet Edition

Well we get to go up against the ugliest man to ever play major league baseball today! Thats right, Randy Johnson is pitching for the D-Backs. I will say I am surprised that he is doing as well as he has this year. I was under the impression that he had no cartilage left in his knees and that isn't a situation that is conducive to pitching in the Majors. Whatever. The sooner he gets his 300th win the sooner we don't have to look at him anymore.

The surprising Jorge Campillo will be throwing for the Braves. This dude just uses smoke and mirrors to get people out. I love it, but I don't know how long it will last. Today will be the best test because the D-Backs offense has some serious scrempf.

I think we really need to take the last couple of games in the series for the simple fact that this is one of the best teams in the league and we need to prove that we can run with the big boys. What we really need is for Tex to find his power stroke. I know he has been hitting much better lately but I want to see him hit 5 homers in a week so people will be even more afraid to pitch to him and Chipper. Chipper is hitting .415 by the way. Maybe we should do some kind of poll where we guess what day Chipper finally drops below .400 for good. I'll have to run it by Gondeee.
