"If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
The phrase may be old or overused, but it's working for the Atlanta Braves right now. After quite a bit of toying with his lineup in the opening weeks of the season, manager Fredi Gonzalez has found a lineup he is very happy and comfortable with. And seeing as the Braves rank second in all of baseball and lead the National League in runs scored, you can see Gonzalez's motives behind his daily decisions.
This has been the pretty standard order for the last month or so. Here's the lineup for Monday's game with the Cincinnati Reds.
Michael Bourn CF
Martin Prado LF
Freddie Freeman 1B
Dan Uggla 2B
Brian McCann C
Chipper Jones 3B
Jason Heyward RF
Tyler Pastornicky SS
Randall Delgado P
It should be a beautiful night for baseball at Turner Field this evening. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m.
