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

20 May – Atlanta Braves – – Atlanta Braves – BatStatistics

Did you realize that with Mark DeRosa on the DL, Chipper not only is the only Brave on the active roster hitting better than .300 (.320) but the only one better than Andruw at .257? 63 points between your best hitter and your second-best… That’s pretty extreme. Of course, Andruw is doing some other things (12 homers — as many as Chipper and Sheff combined — a team-high 27 walks, gold glove defense) while most of the other guys on the team have bad batting averages and no peripherals. Four regulars (Furcal and the triplets, Castilla, Lopez, and Helms) have OBPs below .290. Pitching has been pretty good, though, third in the league and closing.
