Link. (http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/news/article.jsp?ymd=20050820&content_id=1177250&vkey=news_mlb&fext=.jsp&c_id=mlb) The only reason I am posting this is because he is the first 2005 draft pick to make it to the majors. He could be a big boost to the Braves pen.

Do those Braves know how to find and raise a ballplayer or what?

Because of Ozzie's relation to the Braves and Bobby Cox, I'm hoping the Sox become the Braves west. They've already commited to pitching and have a good farm system. Let's hope they can teach the intangibles.

You think he was brought up a bit early? :D: And they used him in a crucial extra inning situation.

Let's call up Lance Broadway and put him in in the 9th vs. Anaheim!

I agree that Joey Devine being brought to the big leagues this soon by the Braves will help bring a big boost to their at times shaky bullpen. However, Bobby Cox should have lifted him after one inning of work, the 12th, where he threw a one, two, three inning, AND WOULD HAVE IF HE WOULD HAVE SENT JULIO FRANCO, WHO WAS WAITING IN THE ON DECK CIRCLE, UP TO PINCH HIT FOR DEVINE AFTER BRIAN MCCANN REACHED FIRST TO LEAD OFF THE BOTTOM OF THE 12TH!!!! BUT NOOOOOOO, COX CALLED FRANCO BACK AND SENT DEVINE UP IN AN OBVIOUS BUNT SITUATION WHERE HE FAILED TO LAY A BUNT DOWN, INSTEAD STRIKING OUT:angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: !!!!
