How depressing. Buddy Carlyle gave up three runs in the first, and the Braves didn’t do squat offensively and thus lost, even though the pitching after that was pretty good. Chipper went 0-3 with a walk, falling to .337, and is extremely unlikely to win the batting title, having to settle for the Real Park batting title.
Bobby put out a bunch of nobody players, with only Chipper, Francoeur, and (arguably) Escobar as regulars starting the game. In their one real chance to get some runs, with runners second and third, one out, Bobby let Orr hit for himself against a lefty, then used Woodward, of all people, as the pinch-hitter for the pitcher. He just didn’t care. But then again, neither did I. (He may have been making sure that Woodward finished the season below .200.)
At least we get to taunt the Mets for perpetrating the Greatest Choke in National League History.
