Braves 3, Yankees 2

The Braves did something that they only did 3 times the WHOLE season
last year by winning a game decided by one run. It seemed like whenever
we looked like we were going to win, something happened like missing an
easy pop-fly or giving up a 9th inning home run and then lose in extras
or in the 9th inning. It was horrible. It looks like we have solved the
problem now, but we will have to keep it up until April through October
if we want to compete. Today’s win was also special since it was
against the Yankees. There are 3 teams who I LOVE beating and they are the Yanks, the Mets, and the Phillies. It always makes my day special.
This is what our pitching looked like today

A solid start from Kawakami helped. He allowed no hits, but did
walk 3 though it didn’t matter as they didn’t score any runs from it.
It was nice seeing Boyer do good today as well.

Josh Anderson hit a double
against Yankees’ Ian Kennedy to start the game and wold later score thanks to Kotchman with a 2 run double. Escobar hit a
sac-fly to score Prado from 3rd later on, and that was really all the Braves needed to do. Frenchy left after one at bat to go play
golf with John Smoltz and Tiger Woods. I would have rather had him stay
to improve that .091 batting average he has but oh well.
There is an interesting player
who played today and yesterday. His name is Reid Gorecki. Yesterday he
hit a home run and today he hit a double. He has only had those 2 at
bats the whole Spring. Anyone wanna give me a scouting report on this
guy. He looks very good so far, even though he has had only 2 at bats.
Hopefully he will get more so I can see if this guy if real or not.

Other Braves Playing For Their Country
Chipper went 0-4 and McCann went 1-2 with with a double and and run for the U.S.
Gregor Blanco went 1-3 with a run, 2 walks, and a stolen base for Venezuela
Concepcion Rodriguez went 2-5 with a run, 2 RBIs, and a triple.
Bryan Dumesnil pitched 1.1 innings giving up 2 hits (one being a home run), a walk, a run, and struck out one.

    I just came out with my roster predictions: http://www.braveslaunchpad.com/?p=2484. Let me know what you think and what changes you a) would make if you were Bobby Cox and b) you think Bobby Cox will actually make. Bobby was raving about Medlen after the game today so he probably stands a fairly decent chance of making the roster.

    HA! If it is a while, it is only because we don’t play each other in interleague, or if we make it to the WORLD SERIES and you guys get KNOCKED OUT! Believe me, we can beat you again.
