Braves @ Padres (Rubber Game) & Futures Game Open Thread

The Futures game starts at 12:30 on ESPN2. Make sure you tune in to watch our speedy young centerfielder Gorkys Hernandez lace them up for the World Team. It should be a nice showcase of baseball's up and coming talent. Perhaps some of the guys playing in the game will wind up on our team in the next few weeks... humm.

It was great to see Frenchy have a good game last night and come through with a clutch hit. When was the last time we used the word Francoeur and clutch in the same sentence? Also good to see Morton and Lillibridge have good games.

Our third rookie pitcher in a row toes the rubber today; Jorge Campillo tries to even his record at 4-and-4 and break his two-game personal losing streak.
