If there is anything that can make a rainy day in Boston with the Braves losing in the seventh inning a little less gloomy, it's watching the two men who have carried the Braves franchise for so many years being ejected together. Yes, Bobby Cox and Chipper Jones went down fighting as they argued balls-and-strikes with gusto. Terry Pendleton had to hustle on out to get Chipper away from the umpire (maybe these guys are learning from the Mike Cameron and Milton Bradley suspensions) and Bobby, the manager holding the record for the most career ejections, kept fighting the good fight. The umpire was clearly wrong, so say Chip Caray and Ron Darling, two guys that have seen far more games than I'll ever see in my lifetime. Makes a dreary day a little less so.
