This is what a pitching prospect who pans out looks like. - Scott Cunningham

Medlen versus Santana. History in the making.

The Royals face off against the Braves in this incestuous match-up. The Royals of yore begat the Braves of yore who sprouted a second head, lopped it off, and shipped it right back to Kansas City. Who's better off? The standings would indicate that it is the Braves. Perhaps this has a bit to do with the men that left Atlanta for the off-colored pastures of the Kansas/Missouri border. Since Moore, Fischer, et al, left Atlanta, the Braves have had no shortage of pitching prospects that they've developed. Addition by subtraction? Perhaps. Tonight's tilt features one of those young arms that the Braves have developed since Moore left town.
