First Pitch: 6:10 PMTV: FSNORadio: TIBN, Go 96.3, La Raza (Sp.)Know Thine Enemy: Talking Chop

A weird little two game series in Atlanta starts today, which means we get to watch pitchers hit! The Braves (44-74) are actually worse than the Twins (47-71) which is fun. It is always nice to be not the worst. That's my motto, anyway. Aim high!

Former Brave, and current Twins ace Ervin Santana gets the start today. He's been on a roll lately, and it wouldn't be the most surprising thing in the world if he kept it going against the worst team in baseball. Atlanta's starter is Joel De La Cruz whom neither you nor me have heard of before this game, and will forget about within two days. He's been a serviceable fill in for a terrible team.
