Netflixers, if you haven’t seen the documentary “Thin Blue Line” from the 80’s, you can stream it instantly. I was blown away. I’d always heard of it – the story of a man wrongly convicted of murder and subsequently set free b/c of a documentary made about him – but I wasn’t prepared for how artfully it was done. The ending sneaks up on you and you can’t believe what you’re seeing is even real. Human beings are freaking crazy.
Awe…I do love it when you miss me. Leah is a working woman with little time for west coast games. Plus, I have a pinched nerve in my back which requires muscle relaxers and you know how that goes. I did enjoy the highlights from last night’s game immensely.
Uggla looks WAY better at the plate in the highlight videos. Is he flailing in his other at bats? And McCann…HOLY COW!!!!
Bub, I’m super bored at work so I might just check out “Thin Blue Line” and hopefully be able to catch the game this afternoon.
I’m not able to comment often but I still keep up with the board.
Where is the MLB love for McCann. The guy is far and away the best catcher in baseball. It’s insane that he almost wallows in anonimity. Because why, he plays in a far-flung place like Atlanta? For a team with no history, like the Braves?
Need some help from someone out there that is good with the stats. Where is a recap of pitcher’s inherited runners scored on a reliever? Also, is there a way to show how many times a pitcher finnished an inning they were in or how many times they were saved by another pitcher (runners kept from scoring)?
The point is that Sherill’s era seems to be misleading and I would like to see it in another light. For instance, if he comes in with runners on and gives up hits so they score, he was not effective but it was the other guy’s era that goes up. Also, when he screws up with hits/walks and is replaced and the new reliever keeps those runs from scoring, Sherill’s era is saved. Maybe just my imagination and subjective opinion from watching just a few of his outings, but Sherrill doesn’t seem like the guy I want in there in tough situations but his stats are good. What am i missing?
I can’t remember a game this season where after the Braves scored the first run I believed the would come back…. McCann is a beast. Two things I did see last night that concerns me is the downward spiral at the plate by Gonzalez, and Chipper looks tired…
