Notes on 755 Hank Aaron Dr

Why do we need Daryle Ward?

What does he add to this team that Scott Thorman doesn't? The good news is, at least all that he cost was an injured pitcher. And he's a free agent at the end of the season, so he's not blocking anyone next year.

So, I guess it's not a big deal. Unless, of course, he gets a new contract. Then I'll be upset.

To quickly recap the San Francisco series: Offense good, bullpen bad, starting pitching so-so. John Smoltz had a bad outing, but Hudson's was OK, and James's was very good. But winning two out of three is still not good enough. And there's this: of the teams that Atlanta's trying to catch in the wild card race, only Cincinatti has a worse record over the past ten games. That's not making up ground.

The first game of the Philadelphia series has been called on account of tropical storm, and the second (and third) may be as well. We'll see whether Villarreal gets skipped due to this or not. I'd think that if anyone will be skipped, it would be Cormier. Or we could see back-to-back doubleheaders, since both teams are in the playoff chase.
