Johnny Holliday actually started a sentence about Lannan by saying, "Save for those two innings..." Give me a freaking break. He only pitched 6 innings. You can't sugar coat it by saying he was good for 4 of them. He wasn't horrible, but he gave up 9 hits and 3 walks in 6 innings and relied on stellar defense to bail him out. We have to expect more from our starters. Lannan has shown effectiveness, this shouldn't be considered a good outing.

Which followed Dibble sobbing about the moving strike zone.  The Braves didn't seem to have any problem identifying which pitches to swing at and which not to.
