Reading what I wrote a couple of days ago about Brian Jordan… I see this happening in May of next season:
ATLANTA (AP): Atlanta Braves outfielder/first baseman Brian Jordan was placed on the 15-day DL last night with what the team described as a “mild case of death”. Jordan, who was hitting .063 with no homers and 3 RBI in a platoon with National League batting leader Adam LaRoche, died last night in his home in suburban Atlanta.
Outfielder Gregor Blanco, who was hitting .315 with no homers and 3 RBI in AAA Richmond, replaced Jordan on the roster. The Braves find themselves in third place, five games behind the frontrunning Florida Marlins.
Followed, of course, by an activation in September. And now, Bob Dylan.
UPDATE: Another damned rainout. Ugh. Tell you what, this is still the game thread for the opener tomorrow.
