Not a lot to say about this one. The Braves mustered three hits against a guy making his major league debut. Perhaps the only surprising thing about this is that the mystery rookie who beat the crap out of us was a right-hander, Casey Kelly. (Kelly was perhaps the top prospect who went from the Red Sox to the Padres in the Adrian Gonzalez deal. He doesn’t suck, but still.)
Mac is being moved to hospice. As I said during the game thread, he’s still with us
, but there may be no time left. Of course, there are no certainties in medicine, but he may not have much time left.
I promise that Braves Journal will continue.
