Lecure to DL to make room for Cochran. Hope it's a quick stay for Lecure on the DL.
As for the lineup, I'd switch Stubbs and Lewis, but I like it.
Braves current starting OF is Prado, Schafer, and Hinske. Now I know Hewyard and McLouth are on the DL, but it sure doesn't look like they have very much depth in the OF. How about Heisey to the Braves for some of their excellent bullpen, or starting depth even.
I'd rather listen to Kelch read the phone book than suffer through Thom Brennaman's attempt to make every instance on the field the most important event since the discovery of manned space flight. -westofyou

"Bring on Rod Stupid!"
Stubbs flies out to center on the first pitch.
Phillips flies out to center on the 2nd pitch.
Votto strikes out swinging. 9 pitch inning. 0-0 mid 1st.
The only way you're going to see a lot of pitches against this guy is to foul them off.
Schafer singles to right center.
Prado grounds into a 6-4-3 DP.
Jones strikes out swinging. 0-0 after 1.
Rolen lines out to center. 1 out.
11 pitch inning for Cueto, which looks good until you see Jurjens' 6 pitch inning.
Chapman looked good in the 8th inning for Louisville, but he blew up in the 9th giving up 4 runs, on 2 walks, 2 singles, and two doubles. His line for the evening: 1.2IP, 4 Hits, 4 ER, 2 BBs, 3 Ks. His ERA is currently 13.50.
