The good news about today’s game is that the Braves don’t have to play in San Diego any more this season. Apparently it’s in the rule book somewhere that Atlanta is not allowed to win at Petco Park. Maybe we should circulate a petition for the commissioner’s office requesting that rule be changed. Anyone willing to head that up?
Melvin Upton, Jr. tormented the Braves. Nothing new: he tormented me his entire stay in Atlanta. He still sucks, by the way; but he homered TWICE, got another hit and drove in five runs. Is BJ fixed now, or is the Braves bullpen just irreparably broken?
