ChiSox and Tigers.  Phillies “home” games.  An OF bat.  And the injury bug.

    Steve – you and the wifey will be thrilled to know that Hot Tub Time Machine releases to DVD on July 27th.

    The Memorial Day thrashing of the Sillies was pretty good ,too. I think we took first place with that game (not positive, though). Opening Day was phenomenal. Steve, I completely forgot about the triple homer comeback. What about Heyward’s walk-off hits against the Reds and Rockies? There’s just been too many to remember them all. Last night was so huge because it gives us so much momentum coming off a tough week. The team has to be really feeling good about themselves. I am so proud. Go Braves.

    AND…the Phillies game where Glaus hit a three run homer in the first.

    Mom’s threatening to where her Yankees hat. That woman loves to get under my skin.

    Steve, love you, too. I haven’t gone by “r#119″ in years.

    Still high on Bravos this morning. C’mon, Lowe, keep it going.

    Hah!!! That made me laugh way out loud, when I read Steve’s misprint and when I read Bub’s response.

    I’ve downloaded Lowe’s At-Bat song to my iTunes to prep for this evening. Go Braves!!

    I think we are all hesitant to think how much this team is about to rock because Hanson and Jurrjens are up in the air. But in the second half, oh man, I see some tiny little numbers in the Runs Allowed column for this team.

    Oh, it’s going to be good. So good. We’ve forgotten that we assembled a team based on run prevention because the offense surprised us and the pitching hasn’t quite put it all together. But look out for this rotation in August. There shall be streaks. Nice, long streaks.

    Keith Law has moved Teheran and Vizcaino into his TOP 25. Wow. I mean, we JUST graduated Hanson and Heyward, lost a whole farm’s worth in the Tex trade, and here we are.

    11. Julio Teheran, RHP, Atlanta. A big fastball, a plus change and an improved breaking ball have helped him dominate at two levels this year — and it’s not just being in pitcher-friendly Myrtle Beach. Six of the nine Colombians to reach the big leagues came from Cartagena — as does Teheran. I’m still waiting for our first prospect from Macondo. Previous ranking: No. 63

    19. Arodys Vizcaino, RHP, Atlanta. He’s producing outstanding numbers so far with a plus fastball/above-average curve and a very low-effort delivery. Previous ranking: No. 43

    Phils place Utley and Polanco on DL.

    Nice call on Medlen to the pen.

  12. 137
    Bub Selig Says:

    If in the spring, I’d said:

    Jurrjens will post a six plus ERA and go to the DL
    Hanson will post a 4.50
    Kawakami will post a 4.50 with one win
    Lowe another 4+ ERA
    Escobar, McCann, and Chipper under .265 Batting averages
    Heyward .250 and to the DL
    McLouth .167 and to the DL
    Diaz .178 and to the DL

    Where would you suggest we would be in the standings?

    Anne Says:

    Kate, karma might come back to me, but I’m giddy over Post #135.

  14. 139
    Bub Selig Says:

    Please, no bad DL Karma. Heyward’s injury is identical to Utley’s. They even got it the same way and had identical MRI reports.

    Hello from Turner Field…play ball!!!

    Pudge Rodriguez’s At-Bat song (I now know why the “Pudge”): Fat Bottom Girls. Awesome, organ-dude!

    The post-April Braves need to show up for the second half of this game.

    Anne Says:

    For the record, I did NOT applaud Lowe’s walk off the mound to the dugout.

    This must be the Natinals version of Kyle Kendrick…
