I LIKE the red jerseys just not the hats that go with them. As does Cledus…if he were still he would say so himself. I haven’t been able to listen to all of the show yet. However I think we miss Martin way more than Chipper. We’re used to missing Chipper. Losing Martin was a huge blow. He was hitting the ball solidly all year, until his injury, while Chipper was spotty most of the time and a ticking time bomb the rest. Yes, he’s the hero and yes he was getting hot and yes I’m pretty much in love with Meadow. Still…good show so far and Steve, I guess it’s your birthday? Happy Birthday!
I think that MLB is doing a disservice by not announcing the start times for these games. I think if Braves fans knew it was a 1:35 start time they would buy tickets. The not knowing if it is going to be at 1 or 8 is screwing it up.
And how do you show up last weekend and not want to show up Sunday?
Mara – you can redo your post season line up after the conclusion of the Division Series. You can also sub out any injured player in mid series. So, when the Bravos go to the NLCS, if JJ is healthier, he’d likely join the rotation and bump Beachy, for example.
Getting back to the fan interest as it related to the Falcons game last Sunday. Spoke to a buddy who said they were posting the score of the Braves game all throughout the 2nd half and there was much fan reaction to it. And that the club level was packed with people watching the 9th.
