    The call on ESPN was

    “HE HITS A DEEP DRIVE TO RIGHT! WAAAAY BACK! WELCOME TO THE BIG LEAGUES JASON HEYWARD!”

    Then the crowd noise as he rounds the bases.

    Just for that Bub I’m changing my name every comment. Thanks Will especially if you’re lying. It actually makes no sense now that I think about it since they only scored 3 runs on a homer in the 1st but what can I say. I’m generally a trusting person and take what my friends tell me at face value.

    Here’s a sweet story:

    Just for kicks, here’s the Cubs’ radio call:

    “And now Jason Heyward, the heavily publicized rookie outfielder… left handed batter making his debut right here.

    *thud*

    Heyward takes a fast ball high.

    He’s a huge kid. 6′ 5″, 240. Hits in a bit of a crouch.

    Four hits against Zambrano.

    Fast ball high. Two and Oh.

    And they talk about him being a very disciplined hitter. I mean there’s been a lot of pub. That’s why these fans here have read about it. Uhh… and… I guess in Spring Training, he hit some balls that broke some windows. Car windows.

    Here’s the 2-0… drilled in the air. Deep right field. This baaaaallll is gone.

    *crowd noise, 15 seconds*

    Jason Heyward with a three run homer in his first… big league… at bat. Atlanta leads six to three. A long home run to the bullpen in right center. A drive of about 425 feet. You knew it was gone the minute he hit it. His first major league swing. Boy, oh boy. A roller coaster first inning.”

    Don’t pout, princess. You should read the email I sent my best friend on April Fool’s Day. It was a freaking masterpiece, and he NEVER gets got. But I got him.

    Highlights: I’ve changed my major to Sports Medicine. I hate English Literature. My English professor even hates English literature. All I want to do the rest of my life is meet famous people. When I shake hands with a famous person, I can feel God.

    And I made it completely believable.

    Wiley Says:

    just heard the orioles announcers on MASN mention Heyward. This kid is gonna be big (I really hope).

  7. 82
    Bubdylan Says:

    Heyward is on a pace to hit 162 homers this year. I’m just sayin’.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the 100th show & the predictions show…here are my predictions for wins credited to our rotation:
    Hanson: 18
    Jurrjens:17
    Hudson/Lowe: 15
    Kawakami: 14

    I FREAKIN’ loved yesterday’s game…what a shot by Heyward. He’s gonna be the greatest Braves outfielder since Dale Murphy, and he’ll be what Andruw Jones never was for us. Yup, I said it.

    Here’s my prediction for the playoffs this year:
    NL West: Rockies
    NL Central: Cardinals
    NL East: Braves
    NL Wild Card: Dodgers

    AL West: Angels
    AL Central: Twins
    AL East: Yankees
    AL Wild Card: Red Sox

    NLCS: Braves
    ALCS: Yankees

    World Series: BRAVES

    GO BRAVES!!!! FEAR THE CHOP SHOP!!!!

    Harold Reynolds on the Dan Patrick show:

    If the link works, Heyward discussion at minute 12.

  10. 85
    Bubdylan Says:

    Today’s Dan Patrick show, hour #3, minute #12 has some Harold Reynolds on Heyward talk. I tried to post the link but ABT ate it. Or it’s sitting in the corner facing the wall, awaiting moderation.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Heh, I just visited the Orioles’ website to see what they were saying about Mike Gonzo blowing the save tonight. And they had a Jason Heyward thread. Unreal.

  12. 87
    Bubdylan Says:

    Note: That Orioles game that Gonzo blew was against the Rays. Soriano pitched a scoreless inning; two hits and a walk, though. So, through one game, Wagner & Saito > Sori & the Gonz. Oh, and Lance Cormier put in 2/3 of an inning for the Rays. There’s a trip down Memory Lane. We’ve come a long way since Lance Cormier.

    Patron Princess Says:

    Did y’all notice Salty and Kotchman both hit game winners yesterday? Happy for both those guys. I like Salty’s curls.

  14. 89
    Bubdylan Says:

    KJ & LaRoche off to rough starts. 0 for 5 each. Kelly looks especially bad at the plate.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Steve, why again do we let women post here?

  16. 91
    Steve Says:

    Ok, good. I thought we might stop at simply putting the fate of the Braves on Heyward’s shoulders. Luckily we’re pushing forward with this …http://tinyurl.com/yby2fru

    See, I’m on record as seeing this coming with the mlb board. And I got roasted for it.

  18. 93
    Steve Says:

    So, what do people think about Smoltz’s color with Costas on MLB Network tonight for the Sox/Yanks game? I think he’s pretty boring. No voice inflection at all. It’s all kind of monotone. He knows what he’s talking about, but it’s not much fun to listen to.

  19. 94
    Bubdylan Says:

    Heyward’s color. Smoltz’s color. Settle down, Steve.

    (I didn’t hear the Beard’s broadcast.)

    Precocious Princess Says:

    Again on other message boards! Link please…and when I say please I mean now.

  21. 96
    Bubdylan Says:

    No way. That’s an ugly thread. (not because of me.) Let’s leave that one buried.

    This picture is crackin’ me up:

    Hammy Says:

    i totally bought Bub’s Glaus story and spent about 30 minutes seeing if I could find it on the internet. I was even going to go back and watch the game on MLB.tv when I got home.

    What is that G word again?

  23. 98
    Bubdylan Says:

    Here’s the homerun call:

    Protected Princess Says:

    You’re right Bub…that is the best call. I will be listening to it over and over. Hey maybe during my run I’ll just put it on repeat.

    Hammy, dude can write.

    Steve Says:

    Agreed on the Jim Powell call. “This stadium is upside down” is not only a phrase I’ve not heard before, but it really does give me chills.

    Fell into some tickets for tonight’s game. Bringing my almost 10 year old who, until about a month ago, did not care at all about baseball. Seriously, I’d be like, “hey, you can stay up late and watch the game with me.” “No, Daddy, I’d rather go to bed.” !?!?!?!?!? Anyway, he’s gotten really pumped about the Braves and playing ball recently and we’ll be going tonight. Pretty damned excited about the whole thing.
