With McCann's contract renewed before the season, it was assumed ever since he set the record for longest. name. ever. that he would most likely be trade bait unless they moved him to another position. If the pitching stays healthy and on its game, this might win the division for the Braves. Who knows, they might even pull a Saint Louis and win a title.
It's rare to wonder if a 7-game series needs a mercy rule, but this series needed a Steinbrenner to throw in the towel for his team. This was total destruction! If George Steinbrenner was still alive, he'd blow up the entire lineup within a month.
