ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Brewers at Braves – 07/30/2002 The Braves (finally out of the godawful bowling shirt throwback jerseys) won, in a game that was kind of a reversal of pattern.

Site notes on an off day I want to allow myself a certain amount of sillyness here, so bear with me. Skip over this post if you don’t want to deal with it.

ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Phillies at Braves – 07/28/2002 Sigh. Just one of those games. The Braves lost 7-1.

ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Braves at Marlins – 07/24/2002 If Wes Helms (starting against a lefty) has four hits, and comes up just the triple short of the cycle, you know the Braves are having a good day. They had a great day, actually, arguably their best of the season, scoring six runs … Continue reading “ESPN.com – MLB – Recap”

ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Braves at Marlins – 07/23/2002 The Braves got back to their winning ways, 5-3, in a game that to me shows some of the problems in the way pitchers are evaluated. In the first game of the series, the recap talked about how Greg Maddux lost for the first … Continue reading “ESPN.com – MLB – Recap”
