The Atlanta Braves are on pace for 39 wins and, as you may expect, not everybody is excited to watch this team on a nightly basis. However, the team is in New York for a series against the Mets this week, and given the presence of an NL East rival on the other side of the diamond, there is significant intrigue for this one.
Matt Wisler will oppose Matt Harvey in this particular game, and this is one of the better possible match-ups on the mound from Atlanta's standpoint. Harvey has struggled this season (at least by his standards), and there is a certain level of optimism when Wisler takes the ball for the Braves.
At any rate, here are today's lineups, and we'll be here throughout the evening. Join us.
