G’night. Braves made a game of it. You know, it’s the weirdest thing, I may have actually reached the point where the Braves have satisfied me that they’re going to play hard and win more games than they lose… and it seems – SEEMS – to have made me feel pretty okay with losing ballgames. I was even thinking today that if they don’t make the play offs, I won’t be too broken.
But… as Steve says… winning is so much better. Get ‘em tomorrow.
The starters have to do a better job if these guys are going to continue to win. Hanson and Lowe’s pitch counts are killing the bullpen. That was a BAD outing form D-Lowe. It’s the D’Backs. Dontrelle Willis is one of their starters. That’s how bad they are. Lowe has to get a hold on his control. If I was in the home run derby this year, I would bring Derek Lowe and his sinker out to pitch to me. His ERA is back over 5. Like McLouth, he has really underperformed since becoming a Brave. That really sucks.
