Well I have been away from civilization for a few days but it’s good to see the boys get a series win at the twins, driving to Atlanta in a few hours. Hopefully the weather permits some good baseball! Go Braves!
Good job taking the reigns, Curt. Awesome to hear some Ballpark Frank again. Good show all the way around.
Fair to the coolness of the fish tank.
Thumbs up to whoever said the 2nd game of the Twins series was the most important of the year. It’s hard to find a game that marks the transition from the April awfulness to the May goodness, or from there to the late May greatness… but the transition to the Okay, let’s just admit the sky is the limit greatness… was definitely the 2nd game of the Twins series.
Ball Park Frank! You promised to stop in on the message board and I’m holding you to it. Nice show…good job Curtis. I too am relieved when Chipper is not in the lineup. I like seeing him talking to the younger players. I love that he gave Conrad a scouting report right before he hit the Grand Slam to beat the Reds. He can still help this team and will still be the face of the Braves but maybe as a pinch hitter. I know…won’t happen.
My fear of Prado and the like getting hurt absolutely trumps any joy of seeing Braves players in the All Star game. I realize this makes me a bah humbug and I’m ok with that.
Great road trip! Glad for the day off. Excited about this homestand. Go Braves.
Got back from Vegas about an hour ago. Two big sports-related highlights:
1. Watching the US/England World Cup match (yes Curt, I watched every moment of the game) in a packed sports book. Now there’s some cool fan energy. And those Brits can chant so much better than us.
2. By chance walking past the sports book in our hotel on Saturday and catching the last two innings of the Braves game. Damn that squeeze was a thing of beauty.
Curt – congrats on the show. I thought it would be really weird listening with no idea what it was going to be, but you guys didn’t miss a beat.
Girl Question!! So, Jurrjens rehab start made me wonder: when an MLB player goes back to the minors for rehab, do his stats in that game count toward whatever his minor league stats were? I totally get that none of it counts in his MLB stats, but I figure whatever he does or doesn’t do has to record SOMEwhere, right?
Thanks, young Curtis. I waste more grey cells thinking about crap like that. I’ll be at The Ted tonight schweating my (base)balls off. …but think how those poor guys feel down there playin’. Go Braves, and get KK some run support!!
