Broxton Blows and a Major Meltdown
Just when it appeared things couldn't be any worse, the Braves saw their lead shrink by a half-game this evening when Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton couldn't close the deal in the ninth inning against those blasted Philadelphia Phillies. It didn't help that Roland Belisario gave up 4 runs in the eighth without recording an out, but c'mon dude, did you really have to melt down against the Phillies? Now, on this day that Braves Country is reeling from the official word that Chipper's ACL is torn and needs surgery? I guess the Bravos will just have to take care of business themselves and not depend on help from outside the organization.
