The Braves are first in the majors in runs scored

When I posted that they were second behind Texas. That was before the game last night.

That game last night was every bit of EPIC. I'll never forget it, that's for sure.

The Braves keep rolling, sweeping a very good team in the Cardinals. The schedule from here to the all star break is heavily loaded with division games and interleague play with the AL East, no small task.

The bats have been backing up the pitchers of late, I'm hoping we get some more quality starts out of Delgado, Minor learns to keep it in the yard and Beachy keeps being himself.

Freeman quietly 3rd in the NL in RBIs, developing into quite the player.

Wait till that ERA is north of 5 by the end of the year to go along with that negative k/bb. Hell of a season for him so far though.

Well, it's painfully clear Minor needs to lose his spot in the rotation. 3 Hr's to 3 straight batters, 4 total, one to a pitcher. Same crap the whole season.

Now it's only who will replace him, doubt they have the numbers Oswalt wants. Seems like they want to keep Medlen as long relief right now and Hernandez is a question mark to wether he can stil give you a solid outing. JJ and Teheren not really showing much in AAA.

Alex Rodriguez hits a grand slam off a 3-2 pitch in the top of the 8th with ATL leading 4-0. lulz

Congratulations to A-Rod for tying Gehrig for most career grand slams at 23.

GO YANKEES

So in who saw that coming news...there are reports that the starting rotation after the break will go Tim Hudson, Tommy Hanson, Ben Sheets

Pitching will play a big role in how well the braves do in the second half and it'll be interesting if starting Sheets is the only thing they do to shore up the starters. I'd hate to see them give up some of the young pitching prospects for a rental player. The pen has me most worried of all, hopefully Venters' vacation will prove to be a miracle and get his arm back on track. It has to be priority #1 at the trade deadline.

Shame on the Simmons hand injury...at least it looks like we'll be seeing great play at SS for years to come and hopefully in about 6 weeks he'll be back.

Should be an interesting trade deadline for a lot of teams.
