so Glavine made his home opener start and pitched ok...if only for 5 innings, giving up only one earned run. but then the bullpen came in and got shelled. the Pirates carried a 9-4 lead into the bottom of the 9th and then just decided to walk every fucking Brave who came up to bat, until Chipper drove a couple of guys home, and then with two outs Brian McCann hit a lazy pop up that Pirates' left fielder Jason Bay just ran past and let hit the ground which drove in the tying runs and then it was off to extra innings where the Braves finally lost 11-12 in 12 innings. what a fucking marathon. that's the most baseball i've watched in years.
Glavine isn't gonna win more than 10 games this year...especially if he's only gonna pitch 5 or 6 innings a game
Short Stop, Yunel Escobar, is gonna be a star.
Chipper has still got it, now if only he can stay healthy.
The Braves need to get someone besides Matt Diaz to play left field, i mean the guy works hard and whatnot, but he really should be a guy coming off the bench.
