Open Thread and NAHWAL: Nats at Braves (4/21)

New, 388 comments

It's Timmah against Chico -- that definitely sounds like a short-bus match-up. I guess you could call this 3000th strikeout eve. I'm sure that the only thing the announcers will be able to talk about is Johnny Smoltz and his impending accomplishment.

I'd like to see Huddy get back to form after his last "weird" start where he seemed to be bereft of "stuff." The start before that Huddy faced these very same Nats (and the very same Chico) and blanked them through eight innings. The Nationals are always a team that can help a pitcher return to his top form.

Chipper watch is on again. He was pulled in the fifth yesterday after tweaking his quad rounding first. I'm guessing this will be one of those "game time decisions" for Cox and Chipper. With no off-day this Monday you may see Cox giving Chipper an off-day anyway.

It's a new week of NAHWAL. Remember that prizes are on the line every week, so be sure to get your picks in before the game.
