4/3 Game Thread: .500, Here We Come!

on .

Update: Mike Hampton was scratched from the start after warming up in the bullpen and Jeff Bennett will make the emergency start. The consensus among Joe Simpson and Jon Sciambi seems to be that he was scratched due to the cold and wet conditions as well as possibly tweaking something in the pen. It didn't look serious but the Braves are going to take every precaution. Just so you know, our Pythagorean record is 2-1. Also, we're leading the majors in homers and leading the league in at-bats. And Jeff Francoeur is on pace for 54 homers, 54 RBIs, 54 walks, and 108 strikeouts. I think at least one of those numbers is too high. (How many walks do you think Frenchy will end up with? That's our poll to the right. He says he wants to get to 60.) Anyway, Jair Jurrjens did a great job for us last night -- and for my fantasy team -- and right now the only thing standing between the Braves and a .500 record is Zach Duke, who over the last two years has gone 13-23, pitching 322 2/3 innings with an ERA of 4.83 and a WHIP of 1.58. Basically, he's what every Braves fan secretly fears that Chuck James will turn into. We're pitching Mike Hampton, who... well... let's not jinx him. Let's win another one!
