Tonight, the Atlanta Braves will start a 3 game series against the Philadelphia Phillies. Starting the day, the Phillies had a 4 game lead in the National League East. With the Braves having a 5 game winning streak, they are the favorites to win the series, but also because they will not have to match against the newest aquisition, Cliff Lee.
The main reason the Braves have been sooo good lately is because of Chipper Jones. He has come to his sences and he has taken the Captain role of the team by not only making his best every game but by making everybody do their best every game.
Perhaps, the most powerful weapond that the Phillies posses is their first baseman Ryan Howard. As long as the Braves do what they have done until now with him, their chances of winnning the series will just increment.
So lets hope that the Braves offense and pitching continue to attack during this series so that we can gain some ground on both the Phillies and the Rockies wich are the leading team in the Wild Card right now.
But for us to do that, the Marlins need to stop winning so lets start rooting for the teams they are playing!!!! So exept for this weekend that they are playing the Rockies, I will be rooting for the Astros that will play them for a 3 game series before the Marlins come to Atlanta where they will meet a potent team in the Braves and hopefully they will be either first place in the Division or in the Wild Card!!!
What about them Braves?????????
