New York Mets (65-68) Vs. Atlanta Braves (78-55)

Site Announcement: First an apology for the lack of updates recently. We have been working through some things here that have taken all of our spare time and have not been to adequately give the coverage that we are used to. Hopefully things will be getting back to normal around here soon.

What to Watch For: The Braves come into tonight seeking their sixth straight win and a series sweep of the New York Mets. It is no secret that Tim Hudson has been the teams best pitcher this season and will be going for his 16th win of the season. A case could be made that Hudson is the Braves team MVP this season as no one really expected this kind of season coming off of Tommy John surgery. Jason Heyward has been red hot hitting .520 over the last seven days and has raised his season average up to .284. Matt Diaz carries a lifetime .533 batting average into tonight’s game against Mets starter Johan Santana.
