    I don’t remember if it was Olney or Kurkjian, but one of the two said on BBT that JJ’s shoulder is in great shape. The extra rest is probably going to help him in the long run. JJ hitting full stride for last part of season is going to be the bomb. Suck it Phils! Go Braves!

    I could not love this article more (because I’m a small person). I love it not only for the obvious Philly-pain reasons, but also because this was the article written about the Braves only a month ago.

    “Nate’s the one that hasn’t had an off day in a long time,” Cox said of resting McLouth. “We are not going to rest him very long at all. He’s too good in center. He’s kind of like Andruw [Jones] when Andruw wasn’t hitting like he should. He’ll save you runs.”
    So much for hoping… Comparing his defense to Andruw is so ridiculous it is unbearable. There is no way McOut’s defensive skills belong in the same conversation as Andruw’s. Just when I think Cox has made the most absurd statement in evaluating a player, he comes back with a head scratcher like this. I threw up in my mouth when I read that- just a disgusting observation on Cox’s part. Andruw Jones was a walking a highlight reel. Not only did he make mind-blowing catches, but he threw runners out, too. McOut is a good defensive player, but comparing him to Andruw is mind-numbingly stupid. McOut has 1 gold glove. Didn’t Andruw win like 10 in a row or something. That’s like comparing Yunel Escobar or Rafael Furcal to Ozzie Smith. It just doesn’t make any sense.

    He isn’t kind of like Andruw Jones. He is nothing like Andruw Jones. That’s the summarized version of the previous post. Sorry for the rant…

    I can’t wait until the second coming of Reggie Sanders is gone from the team. Actually, that’s an insult to Reggie Sanders. Reggie Sanders had a much better track record than McOut but was given nowhere near as long to struggle because it was painfully obvious that he shouldn’t be on the team. Why doesn’t the same apply for McOut?

    Dontrelle Willis was traded from the Tigers to D’backs. No word on who(m) the Tigers got in return. Maybe we could trade Blow-Blow after all.

    Bub, Curt, Hammy, I’m waiting for y’alls thoughts on Bobby’s comments on McOut and the D-Train trade because you guys are usually much funnier than me on such subjects…

    Mother Nature hates the Braves. Hope y’all brought ponchos or umbrellas.

    Thanks for thinkin of us. We’re huddled up under the overhang. How about that homer!

    Bub Says:

    Shout out to the ABT’ers at the Ted. I’m mad jealous. Sorry it’s spittin’ on you, but glad you got to see a THREE RUN JACK already.

    I SO knew Glaus was going to hit that. I was singing, to the tune of Camptown Races, “Glaus gonna f*** your whole day up… Hamels… Hamels…. Glaus gonna f*** your whole day up, oh da do da day…” and BAM, he did it.

    Fun times.

    A Phillies fan just tweeted this: “If it does resume, here’s to hoping Jo-Jo Reyes takes the mound.” At least they have a sense of humor.

    Here’s what I think about that homer: Freddie who?

    Anne’s new nickname for McLouth…McBenched. Hilarious!

    Well it looks like the patron saint of sh*^%y umpires (Bill Hohn) is finally going to be getting a talking to by MLB because of how he threw Oswalt out in the opening game against the Nats. I doubt they’re fire him…but why not demote him to the Minors?

    Bill Hohn hates freedom.

    Boy, if we can win this game AND keep Tim in for 6 innings, AND tax their bullpen for 8+ innings, “we’ll be sittin’ in the fabled catbird seat.”

    Points to anyone who can name the movie quote. (Steve, you should know it.)

    MORE STADIUM REPORTS, PLEASE. Show me the dailies.

    Tim Hudson, .300 AVG., 5 game hitting streak. Wasn’t he a CF @ Auburn???

    That would be Raising Arizona.

    Steve agrees with McOut. Where was that last pitch to J-Hey? Looking for ground balls from Huddy.
