Glenn Hubbard Statistics – Baseball-Reference.com It’s not up yet, but I have sponsored Glenn’s page. I think you’ll appreciate the note when it appears. I’ll probably do a couple of others eventually, but for now I want to see what happens. Ten bucks for Biff Pocoroba?
Sponsorships: General Information – Baseball-Reference.com I’m going to buy me a text ad on Baseball Reference. It’s a good cause and could get me a few more hits. I love enlightened self-interest. Anyway, I am throwing it out to the readers: what player should I sponsor? Obviously it should be a Brave. And it can’t … Continue reading “Sponsorships: General Information – Baseball-Reference.com”
ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Rockies at Braves – 08/18/2002 Another bad game, 6-3 Rockies. It was 2-2 going to the middle innings, both pitchers (Maddux for the Braves, Jason Jennings for the Rockies) walking a tightrope. The Braves really should have broken the game open in the second, but a Jennings more or … Continue reading “ESPN.com – MLB – Recap”
ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Rockies at Braves – 08/17/2002 Ugh. Jason Marquis, as I feared, didn’t have his best stuff, and gave up five first inning runs. Then it started raining, but that didn’t save the Braves, who eventually lost 10-3. There haven’t been many losses like that this year. Bobby and Leo … Continue reading “ESPN.com – MLB – Recap”
ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Rockies at Braves – 08/16/2002 In case you missed it, Kevin Millwood is Back. He gave up a run in the first then pitched seven shutout innings.

SportingNews.com – Baseball : Atlanta’s postseason flops are not just slip-ups This story blames the Braves’ postseason “failures” (gosh, they have a winning record overall and in series) on the lack of a Closer™. Now, it’s not completely bogus. If the Braves had had someone like Mariano Rivera, they probably would have won in 1992 … Continue reading “SportingNews.com – Baseball : Atlanta’s”
Tie game thanks to Chipper He singled in two runs in the bottom of the ninth, then was thrown out trying to stretch it to a double. Two Giants hit in the tenth, then the umpires finally stopped play. It was already raining some in the ninth, but in the tenth it was a deluge … Continue reading “Tie game thanks to Chipper”
August 15, 2002 – The Zumsteg Plan Here’s another Baseball Prospectus article, this one with a revenue sharing plan that has “no chance”. At any rate, I like it. Interestingly, the Braves are one of only two teams (with the Marlins) which wouldn’t wind up paying money or getting paid money. Let’s just say that … Continue reading “August 15, 2002 – The”
Braves Journal Set up a new poll of sorts.
ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Giants at Braves – 08/14/2002 Stop me if you’ve heard this before — the Braves took an early lead, the offense shut down, and the pitchers held on for dear life. Last night, it was 1-0 from the bottom of the first on, Tom Glavine pitching seven shutout innings … Continue reading “ESPN.com – MLB – Recap”
