Putting things in perspective

The Braves could only manage a split of the four game series in Philadelphia, effectively ending whatever small chance they had of making the postseason. With 26 games remaining, they're five games out, and in seventh place. This is basically where they've been for weeks; there's no evidence of a forthcoming push.

Of course, all that pales in comparison to the news that Marcus Giles may have a malfunctioning heart valve. While it sounds like it's a relatively easy thing for the doctors to fix, no surgery is truly "routine". And this is inside the heart we're talking about, so I would think the procedure would require that his heart actually be stopped in order to perform the procedure. I don't know about you, but that would scare the heck out of me.

Next up, three games at the Mets. A sweep might be a sign of good things to come, but I'm thinking we win one of the three.
