Good news, bad news

Good news!

Glavine will have tendon surgery, not ligament surgery. Only a 4-5 month recovery, is willing to pitch next year (but only for the Braves). Woo!

MattE's knee does NOT need surgery and Braves Live said he will rejoin the team on the way to St. Louis this weekend. Woo! Another four weeks of conditioning, though...

JBennett's mouth is full of seeds, not tobacco (according to last night's game). WOO!


Bad News :(

Mama Kotchman is very ill, and Casey is on bereavement leave for at least 3 days. The Braves aren't officially saying what's going on, but an insider told me it was a "cardiac event". Get well soon!

This pic proves Bennett's love of sunflower seeds. I took this picture in Philly. He was trying to catch them in his mouth and in his hand, he was being tossed them from Acosta haha.

That makes me really happy about MattE! I've missed him.
