Greg Maddux. What is wrong with this guy? He has always been a control guy, has he lost that? Without his control he is nothing. Has anyone read anything on him or heard any good reports on what this guys problem is? I know it is too early to be jumping ship on him for the rest of the season but things are not looking good.

I'll tell ya ... I am almost ready to jump ship ... Maybe they put him on the DL or something. Make up an injury. It wouldn't be the first time Baseball Execs made up an injury. I don't have a bench on the only team I have him on so it is hurting bad. I am first in most pitching categories until he pitches. Then I have to spend the rest of the week making it up. And no one wiil take him. And I mean Take.
Oh well .. I'll take my lumps and pray he turns it around. The Braves can't carry him like this much longer. Never thought I'd see the day.

No kidding, and just to think they let people go this year so they could provide him an adequate salary. I'd pitch for free if they would let me.

Thats right ... I forgot about that .. what is it 18 million? something stupid. I predict a return to the Braves of the 80's real soon .. The next couple of years, watch. Hell they have won so much that their fans don't even go to the playoff games anymore.

come on Professor .. :-o

That is true. People are too familiar with the Braves winning all the time. They take it for granted. Letting Millwood and Glavine is starting to look like it didn't quite work the way they planned.

I'm dropping his ass tomorrow. Who should I get to replace him? Rogers, Kinney, Suppan, Jennings, Dessens, Reitsma, VZambrano or Appier?

He has been tinkering around with his mechanics ever since the bad start. You'd think he would have em down by this time in his career. But I guess that shows you.

One factor: age?

I hate to say it but it may actually be the end of Maddux's reign in Atlanta.

I'd love to say it. I predicted it before the season started.
