The amusing thing about analyzing deadline trades: knee-jerk reacting to figure out which baseball teams made the best deal. It's a pointless manuever which won't be played out for months and years.

Time will tell whether or not Atlanta general manager Frank Wren made the right move trading outfielder Jordan Schafer and three minor leaguers for Houston center fielder Michael Bourn. Bourn fills a huge gap, providing the Braves a speedy leadoff hitter. Think Otis Nixon 2.0.

Fitting that Chipper Jones will miss the All-Star Game due to a meniscus tear in his left knee. Injuries have derailed the Atlanta Braves third baseman's career. Since 2003, Jones has missed chunks of each season. Once a lock for being immortalized in the Baseball Hall of Fame, Jones is now on the bubble. Or is he already a Hall of Famer?

Mother Nature likes baseball. She really, really likes baseball. Those predicted thunderstorms are still off to the west and aren't expected to ruin tonight's home opener. Augusta is off to a 2-6 start and looking to escape the Southern Division cellar.

The wind is swirling. It should make every fly ball an adventure.

Team officials are currently watering the infield. Little league teams are walking around the field. Different groups are being introduced.
