Braves vs. Cardinals 7/20 Game Thread

on .

As promised, here's the post for tonight's game.† Feel free to use the comments section before, during and after the game to discuss the game, the series or the Braves in general. Tonight is the battle of two 8-7 starters.† The Braves are putting Chuck James (3.73 ERA) up against Cardinals pitcher, Adam Wainwright (4.36 ERA).† Chuckie James had no decision during his last outing and won the two previous starts.† If my calculations are correct (and we all know lawyers go to law school because they hate math), Chuckie is averaging 5.32 innings per game this year.† Not the most impressive number and certainly one we want to see rise.† The bullpen has been called on time and again this year, and thank goodness we've had better luck than we would have had with last year's bullpen.† However, asking 6-7 innings out of a starter like Chuckie shouldn't be too much to ask.† I'd like to see him go at least 6 deep tonight. Wainwright won his last two starts, going seven innings deep in each game.† He gave up 11 hits, 5 walks and recorded 9 strikeouts in those two games against Arizona and Philadelphia.† Last but not least, a quick little question I think is sure to get the comment section going:† How do you feel about the possibility that Barry Bonds will get either #755 or #756 off of a Braves pitcher in the upcoming series against the Giants (which begins Monday)?
