NYT Entry: "A Threat That Belongs Behind Bars"
And Also: The Braves ended (barely) their ten game losing streak by beating Tampa Bay (better record) in extras, though they lost two pitchers in the battle (including Smoltz). They lost the next day vs. a TB spot starter, continuing their remarkable descent to the cellar. It's almost a shame ... also, they have had a sort of movie horror monster quality that makes one wonder if they truly are dead. The Mets are not playing like a stupid horny teenager these days, though the other teams in the NL East (Marlins excepted, for now) basically are. Heck, almost the whole NL is. [The Braves won today, and thus the series. Watch out!]
