so, what do you think the chances are with Pelfrey, a righty, on the mound, we see Freddie Freeman get his first major league start tomorrow night?

I hope that Hanson gets better calls by the home plate ump than Minor did tonight, If I messed up that much, I would be fired. Both clubs and fans alike howled at His lack of calling correctly.
