Brantley made a good point in the first inning about Harang's delivery. He hadn't been "rocking back" as brantley put it up to this point in the year and his velocity has shown that. He said that today is the first time this year that he's seen him back to that movement that he's had in the past...and his velocity is back. He's hit 94 several times already. As much as Brantley can be annoying...he DOES know his stuff in terms of pitchers.

Anyone know why we're playing the Braves again? I thought out of division foes only come to town once a year. My guess is it has something to do with filling in games due to interleague play and the fact that there are two more teams in the NL.
