    Nate Says:

    Steve, did you get any insider info on Moylan’s shoulder or Lowe’s elbow? I don’t want Bobby doing to Venter’s shoulder what he has done to Moylan’s shoulder. I mean, doesn’t a shoulder injury on a pitcher scream overuse. I find this troubling for Moylan because he started pitching relatively late in his career. I think he originally came over as a SS before being converted to a reliever. Wasn’t 2007 his first professional season as a pitcher? When I think of shoulder injuries on pitchers I think of guys like Smoltz who throw really hard and pitch forever, not a guy who has only been coming out of the bullpen for a few years.

    Curt Says:

    He was a pitcher in the WBC, which is where he was scouted by the Braves and eventually signed. So as far back as that, he was a reliever. That was 2006. You have to figure to make the Australia team as a reliever he had to have been doing it for some period of time before that.

    #99 – “Mara” – go wash your mouth out with soap RIGHT THIS INSTANT!

    Mara Wanna Says:

    Yes Ma’am. Actually I’m just trying to confuse the baseball gods.

    Mara Wanna Says:

    Deadspin still has up the hysterical prank LaRoche played on fellow ex-#Brave Kelly Johnson in Arizona

    Anne Says:

    #106 – NICE. Like “The Outfield” song isn’t lame enough… Too bad April Fool’s is just pre-season and they can’t do that at some point in late-season to everybody, every year.

    Steve Says:

    Nate, re your #101 – I don’t have anything about Lowe that wasn’t reported in the AJC or I was standing at Lowe’s locker during his impromptu press conference about it where he seemed frustrated/exasperated about the whole thing. Not in a whiny or diva-ish way. Just like a guy who wants to be able to perform and help the team but is limited because of this elbow issue.

    And I didn’t even see Moylan or hear anyone talking about him.

    Braves lineup: 1. Infante SS, 2. Heyward RF, 3. Prado 3B, 4. McCann C, 5. Hinske LF, 6. Freeman 1B, 7. Conrad 2B, 8. Ankiel CF, 9. Hanson P

    Curt Says:

    They can take our lives, but they’ll never take our Freeman

    Mara Wanna Says:

    Curt, Bub is going to wet his pants when he sees that. Good one!

  12. 112
    Steve Says:

    Damn! How extra exciting is tonight’s game all of the sudden with Freeman getting the start?

  13. 113
    Hammy Says:

    Let Freeman ring!

    (Curt’s was better – for a change.)

  14. 114
    Kate Says:

    Phillies won 5-1 today.

  15. 115
    Mara Wanna Says:

    This is a steal…fo’ shizzle!

  16. 116
    Bub Says:

    Frederick’s STARTING?

    DAMN you, Lit Crit! Looks like I didn’t miss him getting a hit just yet. How’s he looked at the plate?

  17. 117
    Steve Says:

    I understand that it’s the Mets and all, but this offense looks like it can do something.

    Mara – thanks for the link.

  18. 118
    Bub Says:

    Did I miss any gossip? I mean, is Freeman starting some kind of thing? Two slugging 1B and we’re starting the rookie? I love it, but it’s surprising. What an aggressive year for Wren and Bobby: the moves “against” Nate, KK, and Glaus. Starting Heyward out of the gate. Mike Minor’s promotion. It’s Opposite World.

  19. 119
    Steve Says:

    Bub – he’s ripped two hard shots (up the middle and to 3rd) that they made good plays on. But he’s clearly not overmatched in any way.

  20. 120
    Bub Says:

    Thanks, Steve. I’m giddy. Does he look good at the bag?

  21. 121
    Bub Says:


  22. 122
    Mara Wanna Says:

    Oh yea Bub…he looks VERY good at the plate.

  23. 123
    Steve Says:

    Bub – it’s been pretty basic stuff for him at 1st tonight. No issues to speak of.

  24. 124
    Bub Says:

    Bub is haaaaappy. 🙂

    Way to go, Freddie. Love it.

  25. 125
    Mara Wanna Says:

    Actually Bub, he looks 12 but that out at 1st just now was pretty sweet.
