I’m not even going to dive into the Braves 5-4 loss from last night, but once again Atlanta was the victim of some atrocious work by the umpires. Luckily, though, the division standings remain exactly the same for the three contenders on Wednesday as both the Phillies and Mets also lost, keeping the Braves’ NL East lead at 4.5 games.

I’ve been swamped with work AND I’m currently in Little Rock so my spare time for writing has been severely reduced. So as a result today’s report is pretty bare…
