    Steve, I think you just like more things than Curt (and me). It’s a sign of a healthy psyche, by the way.

    Wanna share some drugs, Curt?

    Did you guys notice that the Capitol Ave guy hates the Fredi hire and likes Bobby Cox?? I was surprised by that one.

    Anybody notice the year Charlie Morton had in P-burgh? 2-12, 7+ERA, and the awfullest WHIP I’ve seen on a full year of starting in quite some time: 1.73

    I hate it. That’s most I’ve ever wanted to see a traded pitcher succeed, especially since … what harm could he do in Pittsburgh?

    New ajc blog title is depressing.

    Curt Says:

    Anyone notice the year Nate had for us?

    It’s the hate that keeps me warm, Bub

    “Anyone notice the year Nate had for us?”

    On second thought, I hope Charlie Morton pitches a 9786.45 ERA next year and lodges a fastball in McCutchen’s eye socket.

    Curt – I will tell you that my wife thought Despicable Me was utterly fantastic. So I’ll give you that and concede that Megamind may have paled in comparison. But you’re still a monster.

  9. 59
    Curt Says:

    Agreed. Your wife is a wonderful and brilliant woman.

    Leah Says:


    We should go ahead and schedule a suicide watch for Anne in case the worst happens and Diaz gets traded.

  11. 61
    Steve Says:

    Leah – definitely. In fact, we removed all electrical cords, belts and bed sheets from Anne’s house last weekend.

    Ham Says:

    I thought Megamind was great. First movie that my entire family sat through from beginning to end (maybe that added to why I loved it). Didn’t see Despicable Me. Also saw Tangled this weekend . . . it was . . . a movie. My kids loved it.

    Is anyone watching the Walking Dead? It is amazing. Best show on TV. You have to like zombie movies to enjoy it. Takes place in and around Atlanta. I could not recommend it more. Do not let your kids watch it.

  13. 63
    Curt Says:

    Ham, I keep trying to remind myself about Walking Dead, and so many people have told me about it, and I keep forgetting. Shame on me.

    Netflix it is.

  14. 64
    Leah Says:

    Walking Dead? Is that another name for Lost? I don’t do zombies. Vampires and witches, yes. Zombies, not since they invaded Longbourn and Pemberly.

  15. 65
    Bubdylan Says:

    I am using all my willpower to make the Braves keep Diaz.

    *closes eyes and squints toward Atlanta*

    C’mon, Brewers, up the offer…

  16. 66
    Bubdylan Says:

    Yeah, I just pointed my will at Atlanta to talk to the Brewers. Sorry, Matty, I failed you. 🙁

  17. 67
    Bubdylan Says:

    KK’s reactions to Atlanta’s attempts to send him back to Japan, while they are on the very mild end of the sports ego spectrum, make me reconsider the moral golden boy status I previously endowed(sp?) him with.

    C’mon, Kenshin, you made a ton of dough here, go and pitch where you are very good at it.

  18. 68
    Bubdylan Says:

    And yeah, I guess that means I should retract my high-horsed scolding I layed on everyone for suggesting he might be like that.

  19. 69
    Bubdylan Says:

    Dammit, dammit, dammit. I can’t believe Diaz is really, seriously going to be gone. I’m physically ill. This hurts almost as bad as the Conrad grounder. Has he really out-stayed his value? I just don’t see it. Gosh, what a freaking loss.

  20. 70
    Bubdylan Says:

    “The Braves have not made any contact with Diaz or his agent, Larry Reynolds, since the season ended. ” – Bowman

    Frank, how about working on that? Is that standard procedure or something in baseball? Don’t call us… we’ll … not call you? It’s Matt fraking Diaz. How about some communication?

  21. 71
    Kate Says:

    My fear is Matty in a Philly uniform next season.

  22. 72
    Bubdylan Says:

    It’s a valid fear.

  23. 73
    Leah Says:

    wha…huh…why is this happening? I feel so discombobulated! Anne, you may need to double up on the anti-depressants for a few days. Bub, when were you EVER on a high horse? 🙂

    Seriously, Matt Diaz will be the Wes Helms of the future if he’s sent to a team in the NL East.

  24. 74
    Curt Says:

    Anyone seen the Road? It’s a Cormac McCarthy book they made into a movie with Viggo Mortensen? Really good, but GRIM. Wow.

  25. 75
    Curt Says:

    And my personal belief is Hinske leaves and Diaz stays.
