Boycott! On to the Braves

I'm boycotting the A's. They let the Royals break their streak. They lost a series to the same Royals in Oakland. Ugh.

On to the Braves, then. John Schuerholz was in the booth with Jon Miller and Joe Morgan tonight and Morgan asked for a reason why the Braves have won 13 division titles in a row and only one World Series. Schuerholz responded, "In the playoffs, you have to have health and luck."

Particularly with the word "luck," is this new? Of course not. Is it nice to hear such a Beane-like statement out of a guy who'll never be confused with a so-called "Moneyball" GM? Absolutely.

Next step? Convincing Joe Morgan, who didn't sound like he especially liked the answer.
