Did the Braves dig up a Native American burial ground on their way out of Chicago? Maybe Bobby Cox inherited the Cubs’ curse when Lou Piniella retired? OK, so it’s probably just garden-variety ineptitude, not some sort of mystical curse. At any rate, not much has gone right since the Braves left Chicago.
Tommy Hanson gave up 4 home runs (all solo shots, but still… not very good). The Braves’ offense made Chris Volstad look like Josh Johnson for the first 7 innings. And just to make things a bit more embarrassing, the Braves’ defense looked worse than my nephew’s little league team at times. It was pretty much a thorough domination by the Marlins. To add wetness to injury, it even rained in the 9th inning.
