    Bub, that’s a good point, but there are lots of teams that are awful and stay awful because despite the fact that they pick early and often, their scouting department is crap – see the Clippers. I mean, Kansas City has to have had as many high picks as Tampa and they are still terrible. So there is some skill to developing a team from the dregs. And some luck too. The Braves were hell-bent on drafting Todd Van Poppel until he told them that if they did he would go to college. The Braves were forced to settle on their second choice and thus Chipper Jones became a Brave.

    “We had some clutchies,” Cox said.

    Good Lord.

    Curtkapedia is more like it. Is anyone else continuously amazed by this guys ability to remember stuff? Names, stats, etc.?

    I dreamed last night that I was on a long journey in the company of an eccentric old priest. It was too crazy for words. We were hitchhiking on interstates, and he was devising a way to make money for the trip by selling medicines (they were real medicines, too) that he could make. But in order to be trusted, he had to make some spectacles out of scrap glass and wire. People trust a man with glasses, he says.

    Does I-65 go to Jersey? Well this crazy black lady told us it did and we walked the interstate at night. Every exit ramp was like as high as a mountain, though. And every time we would start walking or climbing anywhere, the priest guy would start singing the Jefferson’s theme song. I know there’s limited entertainment value in other people’s dreams, but I had to tell this one. It really was like a movie.

    Go Braves!

    LOST…just watched it.

    First impression…mostly just pushed the plot along, good to get clarification that Locke/Smoky is evil.

    Wiped out a few of the main characters, but gotta expect that nearing the end.
    Saeed mini redemption was a little forced.

    B/B-

    Bub, stop eating raw pork before you go to sleep

    Ca-razy dream Mr. Licious. I guess I’m super easy to please cause I loved it. I had no idea of the watch’s significance until it was too late. Did you notice that most with any real ties to life back home are no longer with us? With the exception of Claire and Desmond, get rid of Smokey and the rest are living a vacation!

    Bub Says:

    Actually, I went to sleep watching Annie Hall. I think that did it. That dream was the offspring of a cerebral whirlwind. No Diane Keaton, though. Bummer. Hell, I’d have settled for Shelley Duvall. I forgot she was such a cutie, I’m used to thinking of her as Mrs. Torrance.

    Bub Says:

    Oh, this is bad. No Hudson or Hanson in the Philly series? Over/Under on runs Lowe, Medlen, and Kawakami give up at CBP? I’ll set it at 25 runs.

    Mara Raincloud Says:

    Quick Bub…now’s your chance. DOB’s blog mentions McCann’s struggles. Sign on as “Dr. Imposter” if you must but get your white hiney over there and spread the word!

    Bub Says:

    I don’t think launching it to those bloodhounds would be smart. A private email would be better.

    If somebody fetches me his email address, I’ll give it a shot.

  16. 241
    Bub Says:

    *DOB’s, I mean. Not McCann’s, obviously.

    Steve Says:

    Bub – here you go: dobrien@ajc.com

    We win tonight. And take at least one in Philly. We miss Halladay and the starting pitching in Philly continues to struggle. And I’m feeling very good about Medlen’s start.

  18. 243
    Mara Raincloud Says:

    I love when Steve’s positive. I concur. Win tonight and take one from the smelly Phils.
    Does DOB really read his email? I’m not 100% positive it’ll work but…*cosses fingers*

  19. 244
    Bub Says:

    The deed is did.

    I don’t have such a great feeling about Meds at CBP. Not at all.

  20. 245
    Bub Says:

    Well, it may or may not work, but here’s where I’m coming from: suppose you’re DOB, and some ruckus gets started on the blog involving 85 medical opinions from 84 bloggers on a player they’ve never met in their lives (including me). Would you validate that rigmarole by mentioning it to the player? I wouldn’t.

    But if you got one private message about one condition, maybe.

    “Ain’t it like most people? I’m no different
    We love to talk on things we don’t know about.”

    Too true. Again…you are wiser. Must come with age.

    Bub Says:

    That’s one of their best lines for sure.

    My ex-girlfriend said I had nice fits of wisdom between long spells of complete idiocy. I think she was calling me lucky. (I should’a married her.)

    The game hasn’t even started and Chip’s in fine form: “That Texas drawl of Chipper Jones…” I’m not looking it up, I’m going to state what I’m 99% sure of: Chipper’s from Florida. Right??
    In other news – I’m with Leah that I’m loving my ABT t-shirts and my office will love my ABT mousepad tomorrow.
    GO Braves!!
