For the first time this baseball season I have a weekend off and I will be spending it watching the Rome Braves take on the August Greenjackets. Should be interesting with two of the top hitting prospects in the lower minors (Angel Villanlona and Jason Heyward) going head to head.

Anyways the Braves will toss rookie Jo-Jo Reyes onto the hill against former Braves great Matt Belisle (pronounces Be-liz-el in my head). If you hadn't picked up on it through various comments and what not, I like Reyes and I have liked him since last season. His most glaring weakness was the walk and so far this season in Richmond he has only issued 8 in 23IP. That is much more controlled compared to last season. As long as he doesn't let his nerves get to him and he pitches the way that got him here he should be fine.

The offense should get a rebound day against Belisle (Be-liz-el), though now that I say that he will most likely two hit us. We shall see.

I will make my best attempt to take some pictures at the game tomorrow night and use them in a customary 3-day minor league wrap up post.
