Hard to pick an ace from the Braves staff.

Smoltz at 3.10 and Hampton @ 1.96 are better over the same amount of starts and every starter is below 4 ERA. Starting off like the Braves staff of the early 90s.

I do agree this game should result in a 'W' for ATL.

As far as today's plays, I also like NYY to complete the sweep against OAK and win their 8th straight as Johnson is on the mound (3-2, 3.68) vs Haren (1-5, 5.21). Crosby and Swisher are on the DL for OAKtown.

I like Boston who is also hot as they send out Wakefield (4-1, 3.18) vs Meche (2-2 5.14). Manny in search of dinger #400. Seattle has 10 players on the DL including Reese, Wilson, Jacobsen, Spiezio, Soriano, Madritsch.

Fassero hasn't had enough starts for me to justify the Giants/Astros outcome. Bagwell is on the 15-day DL and Lane is questionable.
