Matchup: G'Braves Vs. Durham Bulls


Today is the Gwinnett Braves' home opener. So far this season they’ve had a four-game round with the Durham Bulls and finished three games over in Norfolk (one was postponed for rain). Now they are back home in Gwinnett, a town a few miles northeast of Atlanta. Rumor has it that the Atlanta Braves have built a special truck bed about 75’ long so that they can call up a relief pitcher from Gwinnett, put him and a catcher in the back of the truck, and have him warm up on the way to Atlanta. Just a rumor, of course.

It is much too early in the season for these numbers to have any particular predictive value. Let’s just say that, so far, the Bulls are ½ game ahead of the Braves in the standings. They are about a match on hitting. The Braves pitching hasn’t been so good, but neither team has even gone through their rotation two times.

I had the chance to chat with photographer Chris Adamczyk at Thursday morning’s game and have been browsing through her work ever since. With her kind permission, I may be putting up an image here from time to time. But you really need to go take a look for yourself. Her portfolio of the DBAP renovation here is simply amazing. And she has been and will be putting up shots from the games she attends here.
