"He has a decent delivery and a pretty loose arm. In fact, his delivery is better than a lot of the pitchers in the league right now, which is pretty good considering he was wearing a shirt and tie.

But this is how bad it is. The Braves drew 25,529, a record low for Turner-Aaron Field, on Thursday night, and for the classic Tom Glavine/Randy Johnson matchup on Tuesday night they drew 29,722. They also have only 35,000 tickets sold per game for the Sept. 18-20 series vs. the Mets, which last year in the same week drew 141,000. The people in Boston probably believe the wrong team left.
Crashed in the jungle
Don't let the green grass fool you
Have a little faith in me
The future's so bright I gotta wear shades
