Big Night in Atlanta

On the same day the Braves picked up First Baseman Mark Teixeira, they pounded the Astros 12-4 in Atlanta. Kelly Johnson hit two homers. Jeff Francoeur and Brian McCann each hit bombs as well. Francoeurs three hits in five at bats pushed his average to the .300 mark. He has really matured as a hitter this year. Hate seeing Saltalamacchia leave Atlanta. He looks like he is going to be a great big league hitter and it seems switch hitting catchers are increasing rare.
The Braves also picked up Kansas City reliever Octavio Dotel to add a quality pitcher to a battered bullpen.

I am playing in the eleven o'clock tournament at PokerStars. It's been a bad couple of days in tournament play and I am hoping that a good run there will help turn things around.

Good Luck everyone.
