Notes on an Off-Day According to the AJC notebook, Andruw Jones is thinking about getting a cortisone shot in his left shoulder. Vinny Castilla has already gotten one in his wrist, but it didn’t seem to work. If they’re both out, at least to start the series against Arizona, the Braves will face the World … Continue reading “Notes on an Off-Day According”
ESPN.com: MLB – Rocker apologizes for anti-gay remarks Man, am I glad he’s not our problem anymore.
ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Cardinals at Braves – 08/04/2002 You gotta love it when you sweep a first place team, as the Braves did the Cardinals.

ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Cardinals at Braves – 08/03/2002 Okay, I think we can safely say that Chipper has found his home run stroke. He hit two two-run homers today — against Matt Morris, no less — giving him five in the last seven games. The Braves won 6-1. Jason Marquis, who has … Continue reading “ESPN.com – MLB – Recap”

ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Brewers at Braves – 08/01/2002 The Braves won 4-0 to sweep the Brewers, which would be more impressive if the Brewers weren’t such a terrible team. Greg Maddux got the win, and once again was removed after only six innings. I’m really not sure why. He’d thrown 95 pitches, … Continue reading “ESPN.com – MLB – Recap”
ajc.com | Braves | Braves drub Brewers 9-1 Kevin Millwood had another strong outing, striking out seven in 6 2/3 innings. He also had two hits. The offensive stars were Matt Franco, with three doubles, and Keith Lockhart, with three hits, including a double and a triple.

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. They fell behind early in the game, 1-0 — rather than jumping to an early lead. But the Brewers couldn’t add … Continue reading “ESPN.com – MLB – Recap”
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.
