23 Degree DH Sweep

If he keeps up this pace, the Braves Evan Gattis will finish with about 40 home runs. He’ll be a cinch to place second or third in the NL Rookie of the Year vote, behind Mets pitching sensation Matt Harvey. I mean, Harvey beat the Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals!

The Braves own the best record in the majors: 15-5. Perhaps because it’s still so early in the season, but every game the Braves win seems magical. Jumping out early in yesterday’s game one in the 23 degree cold with home runs by Justin and Uggla, Gattis’ go-ahead homer and game-ending throw to nail the base-stealer in front of his family (and friends dressed as white bears!).

Listened to game two on my drive back from Athens. More home runs, plus a hit parade from Schafer and The Juan Francisco Experience. Teheran’s quality start and confident, eyes-on-the ball sacrifice bunt. Good times. I didn’t get home until 11:30, but I stayed up to see the highlights.
