Freddie Freeman, best hitter in the majors? Maybe. Is his prime going to waste right now? Definitely.

Kemp strikes out with the bases loaded 2 out in the 8th, after Freeman drew a walk to load them up. :banghead: 4-2 Astros middle of the 8th.

Very impressive.

Also, thank you for the reminder about Andruw Jones, as I nearly forgot that he hit so many before he turned 27.

We'll see him soon. Mark Bowman in one of his mailbags said he's probably going to be the first of our young pitching prospects to get a shot with Atlanta due to his success with Gwinnett and his age. I give it until July at the latest, probably June.
