Around The Horn: April 14, 2011
(1) Braves plan on leaving Jason Heyward down in the batting order.
(2) Is Alex Gordon for real?
(3) Should you be worried about the velocity drop of Aroldis Chapman?
(4) Reports of Lance Berkman's demise were greatly overrated.
(5) Carlos Pena still has pain in his right thumb from April 4th injury.
(6) Chris Young dealing with biceps tendonitis. What a shock.
(7) Pablo Sandoval continues his early season surge.
