Yikes. Let’s not face this Jeff Weaver guy again, huh? Weaver pitched a five-hit shutout, showing exactly what happens when the Braves’ facing-a-guy-for-the-first-time jinx coincides with one of the better pitchers in baseball. It was pretty awful. Tonight the Braves get someone named “Maroth” I’ve never heard of; let’s hope things improve.
The George Lombard Saga continues. Apparently there’s a rule giving the Braves a day to evaluate him before making a decision. That they didn’t make that decision argues that they still don’t know what they’re going to do.
