Open Thread 6/28: Braves vs. Strasburgs

Tonight, the Braves face off against the Second Coming himself, Stephen Strasburg. And by that I mean, the second coming of Mark Prior / Doc Gooden / Fernando Valenzuela / etc. Hm, maybe I should make that "the Fourth or Fifth Coming." (Jason Heyward is the Zeroth Coming, by the way. Nobody precedes him. Speaking of Jason, he's out of the lineup tonight, though his MRI came back with relatively good news.)

Anyway, Tim Hudson faces Strasburg, so it should be a low-scoring game. Buckle up for the hype machine, folks. This could be a bumpy ride.

Here's the Braves' lineup:

1) Prado, 2B
2) Melky, RF
3) Chipper, 3B
4) McCann, C
5) Glaus, 1B
6) Hinske, LF
7) Escobar, SS
8) Blanco, CF
9) Hudson, SP
