The Miami Marlins and Atlanta Braves will face off in a midweek three-game set in Atlanta (just as I leave Atlanta, of course!). It will be Tom Koehler facing nemesis of Marlins hitters everywhere, Kris Medlen.

Tom Koehler is a questionable starting pitcher. Kris Medlen is an eater of Marlins-related worlds. You do the math.
