Pitching matchups appear pretty even on the second and third games, Medlen should have an advantage tonight going against the noob. but the detroit free press seems to be impressed with him so we shall see.

Plus the Braves have historically fared poorly with pitchers early in their careers. I have a lot of faith in Medlen though.

Nice job including KK/BB, WHIP, and IP.

Yep. We do a real poor job of figuring out new pitchers. That needs to stop. Hopefully tonight.

Hanson needs to rebound big time.
