You Know That's Chipper, Right?

Bullpen BrianCorrespondent IApril 8, 2010

Yeesh. What a way to start the season. Blowout on Monday…heartbreaker on Wednesday.

It’s like watching 2009 all over again. Quality start…faulty bullpen…no runs.

You couldn’t ask more from Dempster and Marshall. Grabow, obviously, failed miserably.

He knew that was Chipper Jones, right?

A guy you’re always careful with…a guy you avoid falling behind in the count against…a guy who can end the night with one swing, as he did in the eighth inning.

And just one stinking run from the whole Cubs’ lineup…0-for-4 with RISP and two more double plays. What’s it feel like to be Rudy Jaramillo right now?

The Braves, meanwhile, draw two walks…strike out 12 times…and leave 12 men on base.

You can’t lose games like this!
