NL East Report

Atlanta Braves: (39-28; Leader)

The Braves took two out of three from the Tampa Bay Rays, and will play three against the Kansas City Royals. Kris Medlen vs. Zach Greinke is the matchup on Saturday.

Philadelphia Phillies: (34-30; -3.5)

The Phillies took two of three from the New York Yankees, and will face the Minnesota Twins. Come to think of it, I’ve always wanted to see how Mauer and Morneau hit at CPB.

Florida Marlins: (31-35; -7.5)

The Marlins were swept by the Texas Rangers, and will head back to Florida to play the Tampa Bay Rays. Check out the matchup on Sunday, Josh Johnson vs. David Price. Oh, and they DFA’s Reynel Pinto.

Washington Nationals: (31-36; -8)

The Nationals were swept by the Detroit Tigers, but they have Strasburg going tonight against Mark Buehrle and the White Sox.

No Weekly Stat this week. Instead, here’s an over/under on Stephen Srasburg’s K’s vs the Chicago White Sox tonight. The White Sox have struck out the fewest times of any American League team.

+/- 6.5 K’s for Strasburg
