When Kobe said the f word he didn’t mean it in an homophobic way. He just wanted to cut another man real deep. If this incident is completely true Roger seems really homophobic. This is not a good image for the braves to portray seeing how Atlanta was named the gayest city in america by some magazine last year.
Steve – I meant that it is significantly worse than Kobe, but in no way related to Kobe. Kind of like when people compared the protests in Egypt to the protests in Wisconsin. Just not related. Different sport, different context, different target, and if all allegations are true, much more detrimental.
#75, agreed, we should take 2 of 3 from the birds, if not a sweep. Holliday is the one who worries me most.
Steve, I would love to see Marek get a shot.
I like Julio, but we gave up a lot of picks. Picks that could have been spent on D. I haven’t forgotten about what Aaron Rodgers did to us. I did laugh when the espn draft guys compared that trade to the Herschel Walker/Dallas trade that yielded 3 super bowl rings. I would be surprised to see Cleveland win a Super Bowl, let alone 3, Espn draft analysts.
Good morning. So I’m listening to 790am this morning as the news update comes on, starting to brace myself for the latest chapter in the Roger saga but, not to worry, that’s old news now that D-Loaded (stolen from Twitter) was arrested for DUI last night. WTF?!?!?! I’m so pissed right now. This great, potentially season changing week (on the field) is going to hell. Arrrrgggghhhh.
suspensions. i think lowe will probably miss a start. 5 games overall. mcdowell will probably be a good one. 10 days maybe. 15. i don’t see mcdowell getting fired, despite how repugnant his actions were.
Nate Schierholtz, SF (Giants have definitely told teams he is available – squeezed out by guy coming off DL)
Andre Ethier, LAD (Team money problems may force trade)
Grady Sizemore, CLE (Think Cleveland can keep up their run?)
Or is there someone you want to bring someone up from the minors/off the bench?
Some of these would probably require a move of Heyward or Prado to center…
According to some sources at Baseball Prospectus, McDowell’s job is in serious jeopardy. They’re pretty reliable, and they did just put him on administrative leave. He might be out of baseball for a long time.
