Open thread, 9/1, Braves vs. Nate Bumps
A sub-.200 hitter with two 4-hit games is probably unprecedented, but a big September from B.J. Upton wouldn’t be. Last year he hit 12 homers in the season’s final month. A repeat sure would bolster my confidence about this team’s chances in the playoffs.
Don’t know the line-ups yet, but DOB sez Freddy Garcia has been called up. I hope we see a lot of him.
