Erick Aybar went to the hospital with a chicken bone stuck in his throat
So this is how the season is going for the Braves.
Shortstop Erick Aybar was supposed to be in the starting lineup but he choked on his lunch and had to go to the hospital.
Man, and things had been looking up for Atlanta, relatively speaking. After firing Fredi Gonzalez on Tuesday, the Braves won on Wednesday in their second game under interim manager Brian Snitker.
The good news is they have company at the bottom of the standings, having caught up with the lowly Twins. Look on the bright side, everyone.
