Ok…Paper bag mentioned Matty D hitting the ball tonight, McCann still can’t see but we’re working on that, Chip did good…do we feel better? How concerned are we about a pulled groin? 10 hits sounds a lot better.
Princess…sorry I don’t remember the SOSG talk. Obviously, I should pay closer attention! And, btw, one of the c’s in tcc stands for Curtis. Curt “I ain’t your daddy” so don’t worry, but probably old enough to be
SHUT UP! Thaddeus Cledus Curtis? Awesome! BubALICIOUS, the big fella on Baseball Tonight with the butt cut and scruffy beard did say he didn’t like hearing that about Hey Hey Hey cause his guess is someone’s not stretching him right.
What an unlikely win tonight. Did anyone have any faith after losing Heyward and then blowing the lead in the 8th that we’d get the momentum back and actually pull it out? Big props to Medlen in the 9th for shutting them down and breathing some life back in the team. And Glaus with the big hit to start the 10th. I’m hating him less and less.
Leah – I kinda like the order of the pages as they are, ala DOB’s blog. But I will see if, after you post a comment, you can stay on the current page and not be sent back to page 1. Working on that.
Steve..the new format is a little more work as is, but we will work with it. Last year we saw the Braves win when Chipper was out. That was big. Tonight the Braves won when Heyward was out. There must be a message there somewhere. Seems like this team could just “click” and then….Ka Boom!
In other news, the Nationals are a couple pieces from having a heck of a ball club. And I guess they’re about to add Bryce Harper to the fold.
This is why it’s crap to be mid-market. Either be the Yankees & Phillies and spend money. Or soak up enough last place finishes to build an entire team out of first draft picks like Nats, Fish, and Rays. Being in the middle is just going to be endless frustration.
Think of it, our limited success right now is built on snagging a player so late in the draft our scouts had to hide in the damn woods to deflect attention, and a draft & follow pitcher that turned to gold. In Tampa, they just pick the best right off the tree for, what, 5 years in a row? Seven? Ten? Heck, I don’t know. But can you imagine a few years in a row of Strasberg/Harper/Longoria/Lincecum, etc? Those types?
You know what would be brilliant? To plan a 10 year swing of coming in dead last for 7 years and then starting to spend a ton of money after all the draft picks start coming on strong. You could build a dynasty like that.
