What better way to commemorate the Civil Rights Movement than to have Civil Rights Weekend in MLB feature two of the game's cities who each have something well short of sterling records when it comes to racial relations. Reward progress, I suppose?
Anyway, lefty Cole Hamels takes on Brandon Beachy tonight in Atlanta.
Not sure if Jason Heyward will be playing tonight, after a cortisone shot to his shoulder. Results of a Thursday MRI were negative for major structural damage, which is good news for him. In any event, getting killed by a Jason on Friday the 13th would be something I'd like to avoid.
Discuss the game below.
