Open Thread 6/12: Braves vs. Yankees


Mike Minor vs. CC Sabathia

  1. Michael Bourn - CF
  2. Martin Prado - LF
  3. Brian McCann - C
  4. Dan Uggla - 2B
  5. Matt Diaz - RF
  6. Chipper Jones - 3B
  7. Freddie Freeman - 1B
  8. Andrelton Simmons - SS

Minor won his last start, but he walked five. He can't walk that many and expect to beat a team like the Yankees. Let's hope he controls his walks and gets a win. Heyward sitting because of the lefty starter. Diaz is 5-for-9 against Sabathia. Our ol' buddy Andruw Jones is starting in LF for the Yanks and batting seventh. Yankee hitters have hit .278 vs. lefty starters this year, Atlanta just .245.

The weather cooperated yesterday, but we'll see if it does so again today with the scattered thunderstorms.
