    Appears Evad has forsaken our little board, even though the Braves are playing better than expectations. I think they a have a real shot at a wild card spot.

Oh, I've slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings......

And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.
