In Claudell we trust

Asked about the firing of Fredi, er, Eddie Haas, then-Braves RF Claudell Washington pulled no punches:

“This is a positive step,” Washington said. “For us to win this year, we had to have a three-or four-run lead in the eighth inning. A one- or two-run lead, and he was going to mess it up, I guarantee you that. It’s hard getting up for that every day.

“I don’t understand what they were doing upstairs. There was no way we could have gotten this far out and made some move. This wasn’t a triple-A team, but he ran it like a triple-A team.”
