Open Thread 6/11: Pirates at Braves (and Day 3 draft discussion)

New, 588 comments

The Braves need to take this game and win this series against the Pirates. A split would be a bit demoralizing to me -- we need to win series against these kinds of second-division teams.

The Pirates throw their best pitcher at us, but we throw our strikeout guy at them.

Use this thread for any Day 3 draft discussion, though most of the picks today are completely inconsequential.
