Show #122: Derrek Lee Joins the Braves

Derrek up, Glaus down.  Chipper critiques TP.  Minor impresses.  And the late inning magic.

    Pardon me while I compose a Thank You Note to the Astros.

    I might be in love with the Astros…each and every one. It’s one thing to get swept by the Rockies in CO. A 4 game sweep by the Astros in PA? Completely different bird.

    Mara – well said. As short on self-esteem as we’re feeling as Braves fans right now, how do you think the Phillies fans are feeling. Just thinking about it is making me feel better already.

    “I have to do my job, whatever position I’m given,” Kawakami said Wednesday through his interpreter.

    When asked if he was disappointed, Kawakami said, “No, I’m not disappointed. It’s another important job.”

    Can we please have some take-backs by the pair of you who believe in the face of all contrary evidence that KK has some secret dark side that’s causing ripples behind the scenes? The guy has simply had the classiest reactions possible to questionable treatment by the organization. I mean, not even an “I’m disappointed but it’s okay.” Not even sure Dale Murphy outclasses this guy.

    Just to join the chorus, can’t believe the Phillies got swept at home by the Royless Astros. I mean, if you’re gonna suffer the most agonizing sweep imaginable on the road, they picked the only decent time to do it. Still fuming at C*x, though. I hope Venters isn’t in Dr. Andrews’ office this time next year.

    Bub, that was only one of us. His name ryhmes with Cam.

    Strasburg is going to have Tommy John. That really, really sucks for the Nats and baseball. That poor kid was so hyped.

    Significant tear in UCL…

    Just heard that. Terrible news.

    Steve Says:

    That really is awful news. Hate it for him and for the Nationals franchise. What a blow.

    Back to the KK thing, it was not only Ham (which I understand, because he’s crazy and actually follows the Marlins) but also Scott last week, who should really know better. Bub – I agree with you. He’s been a class act.

    Steve,

    Yea, I follow you guys. I remember we were arguing over whose rally cap caused the Chipper Jones HR in the second game of the season on twitter…

    I’m gunna miss him.

    Alan’s acting like he’s happy for me, but I think he’s holding back the tears. Marlins BP about over. Go Braves!!

    “Biggest Loser” contestants Heba and Ed are the big deal at the park tonight. It’s Fitness Night…which reminds me to get a brat and another beer.

    Geez.

    Yikes.

    Anne Says:

    It is literally five degrees cooler now than 8 minutes ago @ first pitch. Creepy.

    Anne Says:

    Chipper in uniform and with the fellas at the dugout rail. Nice to see.

  20. 145
    Anne Says:

    Nobody will believe me, but before the game I saw Tommy trot out toward the bullpen and I thought, He doesn’t seem prepared…is he even pitching tonight? Something’s up. Preoccupation with something. His birthday tomorrow…who knows. He needs to shake it or sit the heck down.

    For your season predicting pleasure:

    If the Braves go 18 – 17, the Phillies must go 21 – 14 to tie…

    Optimism.

    Curt Says:

    What the hell? Get ready to play guys. Come on. Phillies have to go to SD and face Latos and we had a damn day off. Get it together and make a move here

    Nate Says:

    Good grief.

    Bub Says:

    Hey guys. Just checking in. Class kicking my tail. Something’s kicking Hanson’s tail, I see. I just got here, so I can’t properly complain, but … what the crap?

    I swear, I’m leaning toward hoping we back into the playoffs and just get a taste so that next year we can make a real run. It sounds like the Phils and Braves made a deal with each other to take a little vacation or something. *Avoids multi-millionaire soap box* … I know you’re proud.

    Yeah, I thought Scott (whom I really enjoyed listening to) echoed Pig Meat’s paranoid KK vision (said with a smile). I just don’t see it. It’s ironic to me that in a culture of spoiled athletes, the guy who says all the right things and takes his knocks like a man gets accused of being *secretly* a personality problem to the organization. I mean, it’s not beyond the realm of possibilities, but with all the right-out-loud whiners in MLB, I’ve got nothing but love for a guy who comes here, swears to “put his soul in his pitches,” flops, and then goes right about his business of helping any way he can. He even addressed the “I didn’t come here to be a reliever” remark with what only makes sense as the truth: that he didn’t say that with any feeling. I understood what he meant instantly.

    Thanks Curt…always makes me feel better when you’re swearing.
