Bobby Cox is freaking retarded. I’m glad I tuned in late for this one. I’m nauseated just thinking what it would have been like to see that ending after watching them leading 10-1.
What a jerk. He literally damages relievers’ careers. I’m glad as hell he’s leaving. I wish he were gone right now. I care nothing at all about the Braves doing well for “Bobby’s Last Year.” I hope they do well, but don’t give one crap about him having a legacy. Get out of town, Bob. Arm-wrecker.
And Bub, beyond the crime that is Venters, he left JJ in to get hammered and really had no plan when it all blew up. I know I am prone to hyperbole, but that was quite possibly the most disgraceful thing I have ever seen. He has no clue.
Jimbo! – first and foremost, YES. Phillies lose. It’s my mantra tonight and it’s very successfully bringing down my blood pressure.
Anne – holy cuss! Congratulations. That is terrific, terrific news.
I think the ridiculous use of Farnsworth today is important for Bobby. He’s got to bust through his blind devotion to a guy to where he gets to his unreasonable distrust of a guy. Like he did with KK and Chavez. He’s got to be only 2 or 3 more disastrous appearances by Farnsworth away from that point.
JJ – I’ll be back in the clubhouse/pressbox this coming Tuesday the 31st. Hopefully I’ll get some good interviews and I’ll be tweeting from the pressbox that night as well. If you don’t follow us on Twitter (our account is typically manned by Curt, who does a tremendous job) we’re @atlbaseballtalk.
