When is Heyward supposed to come back?

Fredi said it's up to Jason. If Fredi keeps his word and Jason is ready to go(indications are good so far), then we will see him tomorrow in the lineup.

If Fredi pulls a Bobby and says "take one more day", then it will be Thursday. Jason could also want an extra day just in case, however it's all up to Jason.

WTF man? The pressure is now all on Jurrjens to not give up a run, since we all know not to expect much from this lineup AND against a lefty. Fml

Yeah, not the best lineup...

#Braves have only three starters from Opening Day lineup in tonight: Jones, Uggla and Gonzalez, with entire OF out and Freeman scratched

I checked out ESPN/CBS power rankings earlier today. I haven't checked them all season. On the CBS one, tons of Phillies fans were complaining about not being ahead of the Braves. They also had the audacity to talk about how many injuries they have, like somehow we are even remotely at full strength.

Wow, awful O in the first.
