Happy (*gulp*) Mike Minor Day Braves fans! The trade deadline was rather blah but the Braves did add Emilio Bonifacio who is in the lineup tonight. Tonight should be a good night for the Braves because Mike Minor is pitching and it is scientifically impossible to hit home runs in San Diego. Don't look this up but there have actually been zero homers hit in San Diego this season. Jordan Schafer was also DFA'd today so that makes the team better. Sure the Braves were swept by the Dodgers but the games were close and the Padres stink. This is going to be a good series.
