|Today's Starting Pitchers||GS||IP||ERA||WHIP||BAA||BB||K||W-L|
|Odalis Perez - LH||9||51.0||3.71||1.43||.268||20||39||1-3|
|Brian Burres - LH||7 (8)||42.2||3.59||1.41||.268||16||21||3-4|
Perez was an All-Star back in 2002 for the Dodgers, but has really tanked the last couple seasons between Los Angeles and Kansas City. He was originally a Brave and was traded to LA with Brian Jordan and Andrew Brown for Gary Sheffield. Good trade by Atlanta.
Burres has had a nice season so far. He's treading thin ice with his ERA, but he's getting the job done and keeping things competitive. You can't ask for more of a fifth starter than that. He's been a very pleasant surprise.
