BASEBALL: No Quarter

Nope, not feeling sorry for the Braves today. Not one tiny little bit.

UPDATE: I'm not trusting Oliver Perez yet, either. Brilliant as he was today, he's still playing with gasoline and matches out there. Still, you have to love throwing Perez and Dave Williams out there and sweeping a doubleheader (with neither game being particularly close).

Then again, even Soler had a 3.32 ERA in his starts against NL opponents.

Will the Cox/Schuerholz team survive?

Yes, this year. But another one like this and I bet they're out. I like Bobby. Despite being a Phillies' fan.

Cox will probably hang it up if he starts to feel like he's looking at a three-year rebuilding cycle. Right now he probably feels like they can turn it around next year.

I was wondering, though, if they'll be forced out.

I'd think there is virtually no chance of that this year. After next year, possibly - there is no limit on how stupid management can be.
