The rest of this week is HUGE. This could be where the Braves keep pace or really, really slip back. If they don’t take the next two from the Mets…I see a possible 1-6 or 2-5 week. Not good. And I completely agree with Nate. Can somebody PLEASE get the Braves working on getting their obliques in shape? Good Gravy.
Are we going to have baseball tonight? I’ve been meaning to mention, “Downcast” is a great app to help manage podcasts. It automatically downloads new ones from iTunes and has lots of scrubbing features.
Terry Collins is a jerk. I officially don’t like him. Hell be fired in two years for being what he’s been all along. A mediocre manager. Here’s what he said about the wet field yesterday.
“You alter the field according to your team,” Collins told reporters. “These [Braves] guys do not steal bases…[Jordan] Schafer is about the only guy. They’re a fly-ball hitting team. They’re not a groundball hitting team. So the field was overly wet. I don’t know what to say, except I’d like to move the fences back when we play against [Florida slugger Mike] Stanton, but we can’t.”
If Terry Collins is shocked that a team alters their field to suit their play, he’s a dolt. So do the Mets. You cut the grass a certain way, you water it a certain way, you have the AC blow out when Kirby Puckett is up to hit a game winning homer in game 6 of the F-ing World Series. It’s called homefield advantage, jerk off. And guess what, you won the game despite all of that. Shut up.
