Eddie Perez is listed in the lineup today as the starting catcher against a lefty. Estrada shouldn’t be tired (since yesterday was a day game and Eddie started the last game of the Astros series). But it’s a lefty, and Estrada doesn’t hit lefties. It could be that we’re seeing a sort of demi-platoon, where Johnny gets most of his days off against lefties from now on.

  1. Very good day for Eddie so far too. (Three for 3 with a homer; he now has an average over .200.)

    Wasn’t Fossum supposed to be a better pitcher than this?

  2. Seems like Fossum was the guy the Braves tried to get from Boston in exchange for Millwood.
