Atlanta Braves Have Pitching Issues Already

Mike Hampton
Mike Hampton will have tendon repair surgery tomorrow and will be held out of pitching activities for at least six months. This will leave the Atlanta Braves without a starting pitcher for an extended time for the second straight season. The thing that blows my mind the most is Hampton signed a $121 million dollar contract in 2001 with the Colorado Rockies and is still due $14.5 million this year from them and $15 million next year. I know he might like the sport, but now after his second big injury and a fading career I will call it quits and count my benjamins.
