Or, maybe given that the forecast today was so bad, they figured they didn't want to expose 2 starters to potential rain delays?


Good point. Randy Johnson and Carlos Zambrano sat yesterday for that very reason.

Duke and Doutramait's similarity?

Yes, I was thinking about this last night when I heard that they would double up today. Duke and Dumatrait is an awful lot of relatively soft left-handed tossing to throw at that Brave's lineup on a single day. So I was pleased to hear that JVB was getting a shot in game two. I think it could be a smart move. After his shaky first outing, JVB hasn't looked too bad. I'm interested to see how he's progressed with a year under his belt. Plus, we get his big bat in the lineup to compensate for Bixler. :roll:

Dumatrait is no soft tosser. He throws almost as hard as Snell.
