ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Braves at Mets – 05/31/2003 One wonders if the umpires of this game were aware that you’re not supposed to play baseball in a driving rain. I suspect that they are, and that they didn’t want to allow rain to stop a network game. Otherwise, it made no sense … Continue reading “NY Mets 4, Atlanta 2”
ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Braves at Mets – 05/30/2003 That was unusual. The Maddux/Glavine confrontation was won by the former, but he only went five innings before running out of gas.

So what if he gets a half million less this way, he still comes out ahead … Continue reading “Sheffield fires Boras, may represent himself”
ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Reds at Braves – 05/28/2003 Now, that was fun. The Braves’ first three hitters (Furcal, DeRosa, Sheffield) of the game all homered — only the second time in major league history a team has done that — and Javy homered later in the first to knock out Reds starter … Continue reading “Atlanta 15, Cincinnati 3”
