Ugh...

1) Head scratcher of a trade between my Braves and Skurn's Tigs. Former 1st rounder Macay McBride for Wil Ledezma. I get that the Braves lost ridiculously sick Mike Gonzalez for the year...but isn't McBride a halfway decent replacement? Just as good as Ledezma...who is out of minor league options, and just as, if not more wild than McBride. Whatever...I'm not going to quibble about left-handed set-up men.

2) In a related story, Buddy Carlyle is making his 3rd start for Atlanta tonight. Could we not get a 5th starter for McBride?!?!?!

3) 1st pitch of the game was hit for a homerun by former Brave JD Drew

4) If you'll excuse me, I'm going to go cut myself and listen to emo.

Nice usage of the "Verlander" topic. Thanks for humoring me.

The trade definately makes more sense for my Tigers, that's for sure. Ledezma is a decent reliever though, I liked him...I wish they would have dealt Rodney instead though, I'm still not sold.

Oh yeah...have fun listening to Dashboard while cutting yourself because, you know, you're worthless and all that emo shit

LOL! I constantly refer to my coworker as "Dashboard" due to his affinity to emo, and tendency to cut himself in a former life.

And I'm counting on the AL-NL switch for the Braves benefit...

Ledezma is at least a half run better in the NL
