Braves Enter Philly On A High

The Braves are starting to play some good ball right now.  Nate McLouth has been seeing the ball very well since moving to the 8th spot.  The pitching has been fatnastic.  Dan Uggla seems to be getting out his funk-maybe.

The only blemish this week has been against the Cardinals, but those were all very close games and the Braves went toe to toe with the NL Central leaders.   The National League seems to be pretty mediocre this year.  I think the Giants are going to come around, but already it seems like the best division in the NL is the East.  The Braves, Marlins, Phillies, Cardinals, Brewers, Rockies and Giants are the only teams that seem to have much of a chance.  The Marlins are doing well so far, led by some solid pitching, but I see them fizzing out soon.  The Braves can make a big statement if they can carry their solid momentum from the past two weeks into the City of Brotherly Love.  It is never too early in the season to win a series agasint the Phillies.

There are some good pitching matchups this weekend, as the Braves send out Lowe, Jurrjens and Hanson against Cliff Lee, Roy Oswald and Cole Hamels, respectively.  We catch a break again agaisnt the Phillies by not having to face Halladay. 

The Braves are first in the NL  in team ERA, but the Phillies are not far behind at 3rd. 

Our very own Kensingtondawg is heading up there to catch tonight’s and Saturday’s games. It should be a good weekend of baseball for the Braves-and hopefully we can take the series against the Phillies!  With our outsanding pitching, the Braves can beat anyone any given night.

    I think that this series is as important as a series can get before the all-star break. If we can take at least one of the next two away from the Phils in Citizens Park we could be looking at a promising start to the summer. And Corbin, how did you feel about 300?
