Today is the only split squad game of the spring for the Braves. For the uninitiated, a split squad is where the team takes half of their players one place and half another place. Usually one of the games is a home game, but this is the rare away-away split squad.
I'll be taking the long and stop-lighted drive down Irlo Bronson to Osceola County Stadium to take in the Braves at the Astros. No, I did not want to drive two hours each way to the Gulf Coast; not after the 7 hour journey from Atlanta yesterday.
I'll be watching Kenshin Kawakami take the mound, followed by Manny Acosta, Michael Dunn, Jonny Venters, and Craig Kimbrel. Had I chosen to go to Dunedin and see the Braves take on the Blue Jays, I would be watching Kris Medlen, Stephen Marek, James Parr, Juan Abreu, Kyle Cofield, and Lee Hyde.
I'm gonna hit the road and hopefully get a good ticket. I may tweet some updates from the stadium, or I may try to mobile comment, we'll see.
