• Atlanta Braves' outfielder Matt Diaz was on XM's Inside Pitch with Jeff Joyce and Kevin Kennedy on Monday when he was asked about how ATL Manager Bobby Cox prepares the team for facing "a team like" the Nationals:

"They have had their way with us over the past two years, and it's been frustrating, so all he has to do, and he has reminded us, that they are not to be taken lightly, especially by us, you know, when it seemed like everyone else in the league was beating them, they were beating us. So maybe now that they're beating everyone else in the league, it's our turn to beat on them a little bit, so we'll hope that's what happens this next two-games series..."

• Last season, when the Nationals were 59-102, Washington was 6-12 against Atlanta, though they swept a late August series against the Braves and split their last four-game set of 2008. So far this season, DC's beat ATL in 4 of 9 games, including 2 of the last 3 each of the last two times the Braves visited Nationals Park.
