Maddux is not his usual self and is no longer a legitimate ace, Ortiz is their only solid pitcher and even he is a sacry guy constantly tetering on the edge of totally losing it with his control. Ramirez is a servicable but not great pitcher, and Hampton and Reynolds are just plain atrocious.
I would not be surprised to see the Phillies overtake the Braves in the standings and the Braves finally miss the playoffs.
Oh I'll agree, but I am pulling hard for FLA. And I found it interesting that MON was trying to add
Jaun. Yeah ATL is in trouble..
Castilla and Lopez ?? they are playing out of there minds. No way that keeps up. Sheff is way overdue for the DL and Andruw has his his annual slump yet.
And that staff ..
There only saving grace might be there bullpen. But, yeah I'll agree, the ATL is in trouble.
