The Astros make the 20-minute drive from Kississimmee to play the Braves at Disney tonight. Jo-Jo Reyes will be on the mound (notice the timely player preview this afternoon). Jeff Bennett, Boone Logan, Manny Acosta and Phil Stockman are also scheduled to pitch, with all them in fierce competition for a bullpen spot.
We're finally out of the dark tonight as Project 9-6-1 will begin a weekend set of radio broadcasts with Jim Powell and our old buddy Don Sutton at the helm. I'm eager to tune in to see how the two sound together. Saturday and Sunday afternoon's games will also be broadcast. Here is a schedule.
Hey MLB, what good is it to have your own network if you don't broadcast live baseball every chance you get? Tonight would be a perfect opportunity.
