Mark, I was picturing Nate winning the job in Spring Training. Glad you brought up Winter Ball. The Braves organization is impressed with slumpers go to winter ball. I’ve heard of them basing a decision or two on it. If Nate slumps in Gwinnett and doesn’t go to Arizona in the winter, I think his chances of winning the job in Spring go down.
Lots of interesting data points today. #1: FW not being scared of burying money by sending McLouth down (just like putting KK in the bullpen). #2: Somewhat less significant, but still good to see Bobby dropping Glaus to 6 tonight. Again, very un-Bobby like.
Bub, perhaps the most important factor you left off in the 2013 WS run is that there might very well be a new owner who surrounds all those guys with some veteran pieces to make that an even more impressive lineup. A man who is willing to be the face of a franchise and spend some extra dollars to close some of those gaps that Liberty Media refuses to address. We’ll leave his name Blank for now.
Why is my print so tiny? Bub, the “war eagle” cry may have been part of pulling him away from the throngs and his zoning in on my adorable child. I have video. Nationals park=great view even from nose bleed seats.
