It will be important to get out to a good start this season. I think the batting order will change around a good bit and hopefully Nate can make something out of the second hole, if not, I think you have to move Chipper to 2 and Heyward to 3. Nate needs to be given some time at the top, but if he still can't get in a groove, he has to go down.

Good for Lowe with a strong outing. His pitches were moving nicely yesterday with a lot of over swings. Hopefully we get the end of the season Derek all year and not the middle of the season one.

This pitching rotation is good and some young arms in the pen. Closer by rotation is not a good move to me, I think it's Kimbrel's spot to lose.... definitely a dark horse for ROY Venters will be one of the best setup guys in the show.

Tough game today, Hanson looks like the mid-season version from last year. On gameday, is it just me or has he lost some velocity on the hard stuff...that with location problems does not go very well. Either way, its kind of a joke Hudson is the 3rd pitcher right now.

The leadoff guys have had a rough go of it. Not too worried about Prado, but McOut still scares me as the #2. If he can't get it going again this year, say goodbye to one of our pitching prospects.

Nice to pick up the two wins against the Mets today. Jair really looked good in his return and a lot of long balls in play today.

Yeah, it could have easily been done, but Huddy was showing signs of wear. I think all in all the move is less of pulling Hudson due to control and more building confidence for Kimbrel and preparing him for down the stretch.

Still good to see one of our top guys out duel a guy that gave us so much trouble in the post season last year.

Lowe doing a good job of screwing up a promising start for him. DUI and reckless driving in Atlanta, racing another car.
