The Braves may have beaten the Marlines 9-4 last night, but at what cost? Chipper Jones and Tim Hudson both left the game due to injuries
Will Chipper have to park his NL leading .369 average?
Jones, the major league’s batting leader at .369, was hurt running out a grounder in the fourth inning and immediately left the game. He said he hopes to avoid the disabled list but may miss the start of a series against division co-leader Philadelphia beginning Friday.
Hudson (11-7) said he felt tightness on the inside of his upper forearm at the elbow, but he doesn’t expect to miss a start.
I wonder if Cox still thinks the Braves are buyers? At 48-53, the Braves are only 5 games under .500, but 6 games back of the NL East lead. The Braves need to realize that it is not going to happen this year.
