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