Pressure is on La Stella now, with so many people wanting him too play instead of Uggla. Hope he does well.

The Atlanta Braves promoted their second base prospect from Triple-A Gwinnett to the major league club on Wednesday afternoon in an effort to shore up a position of need for the team this season. La Stella is expected to join the club in Boston. A corresponding move was not announced.

Purchased the contract of Shae Simmons from Mississippi. Optioned Ian Thomas to Gwinnett.

I have read some reports about Simmons that describe him as a poor man's Craig Kimbrel. They seemed to imply that he could develop into a good closer, should Kimbrel become too expensive or get traded.

Baseball is a weird game. Swept (and blown out in Miami) about a month ago. Swept in four by Boston this week. Sweep the same Marlins team this weekend in Miami.

Vavaro, Hale, Simmons, Avilan, Carpenter, Walden, and Kimbrel. That bullpen throws some absolute gas.

Definitely glad we miss Hernandez in the short series. He has pitched really well lately (including that gem yesterday) and is their only starter I absolutely don't want to face.

That said, we'll probably drop both with Derfi deciding to start Schafer, BJ, Pena, Uggla, and Doumit both games.

Extremely impressive at such a young age. However, don't forget that we haven't had a long-term & consistent closer in a very long time. Guy has a chance to be the next Hoffman/Rivera/Wagner if he stays consistent in future seasons... and we field teams that can put him in opportunities to save games.
