Chipper’s still hurting, so Bragg is in the lineup against Barry Zito. .100, here he comes! Interestingly, Bragg has been better against lefties than righties this year, though “better” is still .158/.238/.211. That includes his only extra base hit. DeRosa could play left instead of Bragg, but he’s at shortstop. Furcal has a “sore right wrist and forearm”. Returning to bad old habits, Bobby just inserted DeRosa into Furcal’s spot in the order rather than Giles moving up.
Another infield hit for Vinny. What’s the record for infield hits by a guy who can’t run?
I can’t watch or listen to the game, but from looking on the net it appears that Boom-Boom Bobby is still on the roster. Darn.
UPDATE: Stupid Bragg can’t even bunt. He’s 0-2. The Braves should play Ortiz in left.
Braves are winning, but I’m not optimistic. They’ve got Reynolds, a fine-line pitcher at the best of times, going. The bullpen’s been used pretty heavily the last couple of nights. And they’re playing about four players short (Furcal, Chipper, Hampton, Boom-Boom), and that’s if you call Bragg a player. Disable somebody.
