Bub – seeing your name reminds me. Am a month behind in listening to Bob Edwards Weekend podcasts…just heard one with Jakob Dylan today. Your “son” is pretty great. Is it blasphemy to say I like him more than his dad? His real dad…not you.
Anne, Jakob’s got a better voice. And a more pleasing persona (sp?). Dylan’s the Master of the Songwriting Universe, but most ladies don’t care for him. Besides the voice, he’s a jerk. I wrote a paper calling “Like a Rolling Stone” the most hateful #1 song of all time. (I know it isn’t obvious at first glance, but take my word for it. I’m a genius.) But guys forgive Dylan’s arsehole side quicker than women, usually.
So, no, you’re not blaspheming to like him more. If you call him a better songwriter, I’ll be sending out some prayers of pity for the fellow beside the woman in green.
The linup is Prado, Heyward, Jones, Glaus, McCan’t, Hinske, Yusmell, McOut, Meds. DOB posted it a little while ago. There was a nightmare lineup post earlier on ajc. I like Medlen’s chances tonight against the Mets. The Braves somehow always manage to get Santana.
With New York (19-20) mired in a five-game losing streak, Wilpon met with manager Jerry Manuel, general manager Omar Minaya and assistant general manager John Ricco prior to the opener of this two-game set. Manuel said it was “a good baseball meeting” to discuss “our plan going forward.”
“I didn’t come here to fire anybody, guys. Sorry,” Wilpon said.
The Mets went on to win for the second time in nine games, beating the Braves 3-2 on Monday night. New York moved out of last place in the NL East, a half-game ahead of Atlanta (18-20).
I’m going against my original plan and listening. I still can’t believe Melky is paying in front of Infante and Hinske. For some reason the Braves manager thinks it’s a good idea to bench 2 of his 3 hitters who are hitting over .300. Maybe he’s on to something. I’m confused.
