_______________________________________ _________

"(James) is doing the job that he's supposed to do," Braves center fielder Andruw Jones told the team's official Web site. "He's got a tremendous arm and the disappearing changeup. People really don't pick up his ball good. He continues to pitch good and that's what we need."

Chico could not overcome the flu or some shoddy defense behind him in the Tuesday loss to Atlanta. Hurt by two infield errors, Chico allowed four runs - one earned - and six hits in 4 2-3 innings.

It was an improvement over his major league debut April 4, when he was ripped for six runs and three homers in four innings of Washington's 7-6 win over Florida.

The Braves happen to be UNBEATEN on the road.  Guess that means we'll just have to beat them.

They should have skipped Chico turn in the rotation and used him out of the bullpen.  It wouldn't hurt to have an extra arm in the bullpen.

New from 2k6nats:

At the end of the 3rd, 6th, and 9th innings, I will be posting an updated scoreboard with all the scores from all the MLB games going on that night.

Why?  Because I can.

That is a schedule of all the Braves games on TBS.

Unfortunately, the only other Braves-Nats game on TBS will be on May 17th.  :(

Isn't the 5th spot the power hitter spot? Regardless, i think its time to move Church ahead of Kearns...
