    Congrats to Martin and JJ on their raises. I wish we could just go ahead and lock Martin into a long term deal.

    Curt Says:

    Agreed. I’m sure that is on the list of things to do for Wren. And get him while he’s cheap.

    DITTO… a thousand times over!

    Curt Says:

    Speaking of cheap, I know he missed a chunk of the season, but EOF came at a bargain. Not so sure about Moylan

    Steve Says:

    I hate all the talk of Andruw to the Yankees. I understand, in reality, it would have no bearing on anything. But I still don’t like it. Not at all.

    Curt Says:

    I’m with you Steve. And even worse if he had some magical season for them.

    Steve Says:

    Right – and his record breaking two homer game in the ’96 Series against the Yankees makes it even more wrong.

    In other hating the Yankees news, it’s looking more likely that Pettitte will retire. Which really hurts their starting rotation. Happy making.

    Curt Says:

    Steve, I hope you haven’t cried too much this evening.

    Anne Says:

    So, I’m back in school. Class starts Monday and it’s about “beauty” defined through the ages. Is it wrong that I plan to write an essay about the beauty of a well-timed, well-placed centerfield catch? We’ll see if the prof goes for it.

    Steve Says:

    Anne – what degree are you getting?

    This is fun: http://tinyurl.com/4hpjnl3

    Nate Says:

    What a moron. Royals Outfielder preceding the name Jeff Francouer is very appropriate, though. I think the inventions of the breaking ball and the off speed pitch were bigger reasons for his offensive woes, but we shall see, Jeff, we shall see…

    Anne Says:

    Steve – never got my undergraduate. THIS close…and I can go for free (thanks, employer). I’m as dumb as a one-year contract for Andruw.

  14. 139
    Curt Says:

    Anne, I started college in 1988. I graduated in 2002. It’s never too late. Congrats on finishing it up.

  15. 140
    Curt Says:

    Sorry, 2006.

  16. 141
    Anne Says:

    Thanks, Curt! 2006 says you’re welcome.

  17. 142
    Steve Says:

    Anne – congrats, indeed. That’s terrific. I just hope your studies won’t impeded your Braves viewing.

    Leah Says:

    Frenchy makes me sad. He’s so handsome…what a waste. I used to LOVE that guy. Remember when my first post was sticking up for him and telling you guys he was going to bounce back? icky…

  19. 144
    Curt Says:

    Leah, I think he has been led astray by bad management. He’s such a nice guy when you meet him. I just think someone is in his ear telling him how great he is and he isn’t bright enough to understand that he isn’t any more.

    Steve Says:

    I took my three boys to Turner Field for the tour today. It was great to be back in the stadium. Better than great, really. The tour typically includes a peak into the clubhouse. But not today as the rookie development week was still going on and they were in the clubhouse.

    Also, as we we leaving, I saw fans filing into a door next to the ticket windows that I’d not really noticed before. I stopped one of the guys who told me it was a season ticket holder event where they got to meet and greet with the rookies.

    Leah Says:

    Steve, that’s awesome. Ready for the season!

    Curt Says:

    At least we are done with the Jets. I found it hilarious yesterday all the people who were choosing to root for the Jets because of Roethlisburger’s (SP?) off the field transactions. Not that I condone it at all. He’s a piece of garbage. But have they checked out who plays for the Jets recently? Just their receiving corps.

    What a gutless bum Jay Cutler is. Dimino was saying that he better throw himself down the stairs this morning to ensure that he is hurt enough to justify opting out of the NFC championship game. Something tells me that Matt Ryan is out there unless he is on a stretcher.

    Wiley Says:

    couldn’t agree more Curt. To be frank, that COULD have been the biggest game of his career. There is no guarantee that he will get back there. Look at Marino, he made a super bowl his first year and lost. His attitude (in retrospect) was: no big deal, i’ve got a whole career ahead of me I’ll get another chance. He never had another chance. You have to put it all out on the line.

    Also, as for the Jets, I wanted them to win, to be honest. All we will see for the next two weeks will be each team trading compliments and selling themselves short. At least, Bart Scott or Rex Ryan would have given us a sound byte.

    Hey Wiley, what colleges are you looking at? Or rather, at which colleges are you looking?
