Did the return of Mike Lum inspire confidence in Braves fans? Was this the return of a “Braves great”?
I find that hard to believe. Mike Lum was a guy who had two solid seasons for the Braves in the early 70s and that was pretty much the only thing that kept his career above the replacement line.
Were the Braves even trying to win at this point? No. Not yet. Almost though.
