I don’t want them forget Ruth; I just want them to remember me. -Hank Aaron

4/20/98: Dennis Martinez got blasted yesterday. I’m not willing to totally write a pitcher off on the basis of a Coors Field appearance, but he hasn’t really pitched well except maybe in his first start. He looks like he’s throwing pretty well, but he’s not very effective. On other pitching news, it’s been pointed out by Baseball Prospectus that removing one of Richmond’s rotation starters (Paul Byrd) to cover for one double-header in April isn’t exactly nice. How would the Braves feel if somebody snatched up Glavine, say, even though they didn’t need him?
