Braves sweep Padres

Is it possible to sweep a series in a bad way? I guess not, but the Braves' weekend sweep of the Padres comes close.

What was good? Well, they won all three games. The offense was impressive. Any time you score at least ten runs in three straight games, that's a good thing. Chipper in particular is playing out of his mind right now. Smoltz pitched well.

But there were a lot of bad things over the weekend, too. Giles got hurt again, spraining his thumb. I'm afraid that may linger, and derail his recent resurgence. The bullpen was not good overall - in the first game of the series, they blew the lead multiple times. Chuck James got another win, but it seems like each win he gets is less impressive than the last.

Any win is a good win, but if the offense slacks off, we won't be winning many games.

    Looking forward to more. And no, even when you're as far out as the Braves, there's no such thing as a bad sweep (although you can have a sweep in which some bad things happen).
