If any Braves fans are looking to fill their offseason with something besides football and EPL(kudos to those who know what this is), then I strongly recommend Sons of Anarchy. Just got started on it over the Summer. I’ve almost caught up. It’s really good.
It’s times like these that I’m glad the Braves aren’t nationally popular. All ESPN is talking about is the Boston collapse. They lost a 9 game lead starting on September 2. ESPN even went so far as to make a song about their failure.
Braves kept hoping Lowe could pitch a good game or two so they can get something for him. Earlier in the year they could have traded him if they would have eaten about a third to half of next year’s contract. Now, Braves will eat it all as he should never pitch for the Braves again. Take the hit, Release him TODAY and a year from now they’ll have $15 mil to work with. Also, that will make him the scapegoat for Fredi. But how does Lowe take the blame for the pathetic hitting?
139 – The day the story came out, Smoltzy just happened to be live on MLBN, they confronted him and John said something to the effect that: Ah, you know, that’s just Leo having some fun — I’ve never juiced a ball.
I don’t think God listens to prayers about sports. So, guess we just cross our fingers. Maybe we have 1 or 2 games left. Hudson can be good at times and McCann squinted pretty good last night so, maybe he will be joined by others in seeing the ball. Even with a Braves win and a Cardinal loss, we have now been made keenly aware of some serious flaws with this team’s players/management. Plenty to keep everyone busy in the off-season.
