But to point out that the Braves scored a whopping five runs in three games in the Metrodome. The criticism of the team seems to focus mostly on the pitching, but a lot of ire needs to be directed at the offense. McCann finally went deep last night, but he's been slumping. Andruw and Francoeur haven't picked up much slack, either.
Oh, and one other issue: I hate criticizing Bobby Cox, who has forgotten more about baseball than I'll ever know, but why was Saltalamacchia still in the game in the 9th inning last night when Scott Thorman is a better defensive option at first base? Bobby is the guy who kept Rafael Belliard around for years for late-inning defensive purposes, so we know he isn't averse to defensive substitutions.
In all this gloom, it bears mentioning that Tim Hudson was fantastic last night. His movement and location were great to watch.
It also bears mentioning that all my hatred of the Twins came rushing back in the 9th inning. Cheating, monkeying-with-the-air-conditioning, can't-win-a-road-game bastards.
