Braves left fielder Justin Upton left last night’s game in Colorado with a left hamstring strain. He is day-to-day, telling Dave O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he might miss one or two games, but it’s still possible that he plays today. Must be one of those things you gotta sleep on.

The tweak must have occurred in the first inning, when Upton hit an infield single and scored. He didn’t play the field in the bottom of the inning.

Upton is hitting .295/.375/.553 with 14 homers and 36 RBIs on the season.

    If Wes Covington or Andy Pafko or other players of the 1950s had “tweaked” their hamstring, no one would ever know because they would merely play through the discomfort. Today’s players are candy butts.

    If we had more players like Pete Reiser, we’d have less players like Pete Reiser
