Post-game thread, 9/26
Sorry about the late thread — feeling sketchy tonight. Feeling worse after hearing the news about McCann’s right abductor strain, which is the same injury that sidelined B.J. earlier in the summer. Hopefully it’s not that serious, but it’s possible we have just seen B-Mac’s last game as a Brave. Which means we’ll have the pleasure of watching either B.J., Schafer or Laird start in the playoffs.
Meanwhile, did anyone else hear Chip’s answer to tonight’s trivia question (When’s the last time two Braves infielders won a Gold Glove in the same season)?
Mark Texshowmethemoney and Rafael Belliard. Seriously. Great guess, Chip, except for the fact Belliard’s Atlanta career ended 10 years before Borasbot’s started. It’s one thing to be annoying. It’s another to be clueless about the team you’ve covered off and on since 1991.
Finally, where the fuck is Jordan Walden? Tonight presented an excellent opportunity to give him some work. Is he still hurt? Is Fredi still dim? Questions worth asking, don’t you think?
