In case there was any doubt

If you're trying to make the playoffs, there are a few things you can't do. Losing a series at home is one of those things. Losing a series to the worst team in baseball is another of those things. Let's not even talk about losing a series at home to the worst team in baseball...

But there is some good news: Brian Jordan is almost ready to come off the DL. Now, I like and respect Brian Jordan, but honestly, every at bat he gets in September is one less at bat for Scott Thorman or Martin Prado or some other youngster. September should not be about the present for the Braves; the season is over now. It needs to be about the future. Brian Jordan is not part of that future - or at least he shouldn't be.

I understand that he doesn't want to see his career end - it almost certainly is. I can't imagine that he's going to do anything in September that will convince anyone to give him a shot in 2007. If he's going to get a shot, it'll be the same as he got this year - and unfortunately, probably from the same team.
