Braves call up side arming rookie. Pen is getting used a lot. Venters got some precautionary rest, could have gone yesterday.

What kind of BS are they trying to sell us? Either Venters could go or he couldn't. If he could, then going with Martinez and then leaving him in until the game was over is idiocy. If he couldn't, which clearly seemed to be the case, then he couldn't. Don't treat us like chumps, Frank. Venters got up, tried to warm up, and then couldn't go. No muy bueno.

Freddie Freeman is looking real good. As is Hanson.

This is the kind of performance that Hanson needs to deliver semi-regularly if we're going to take him seriously as a potential elite pitcher.

Hanson is the most frustrating player not named Yunel Escobar in my ten years of following the Braves. I mean, Hanson isn't a problem like Esco, but just seeing him perform like he did tonight, he could do that almost every five days.

I'm paranoid about any young pitcher that gets used as much as Venters. Bobby Cox's biggest weakness was the way he tended to wreck a kid's arm every year or two.

Solid win today. Sitting Heyward for a game seemed to really help him.

It's never a bad day when your starting pitcher gets 4 plate appearances and only has 1 official AB.

Mike Hampton stressed me out the most.

And to think he made almost as much as Maddux did. Waste of money.
