Do you think Chipper’s comments were a way of getting the front office to keep Prado? Like hey, my knee hurt so bad after the season I could barely move. Maybe don’t trade my back up. Yeah they feel great after a month and a half rest, but when will I get a that amount of rest in the span of a 6 month season? By the way I’m 40.
Don’t know is anyone or everyone has seen Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but I thought it was pretty great. David Fincher is one of my favorite directors. Saw the Descendants and thought it was slow as slow can be. Took the kids to see Tintin. I read the books as a kid and loved them. My oldest son is now obsessed with Tintin. That’s about it recently.
We are having a call tonight about a show, so if anyone has some ideas for us to discuss, other than the very obvious and tired stuff like the Braves not making any moves, let us know. I certainly want to go over that Chipper interview. I really didn’t like a bunch of his answers.
– Jack Wilson signing, obviously
– haven’t seen any of those movies yet, but I want to. Saw “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” and thought it was pretty slow and extremely hard to follow.
– in response to your tweet about whether the Wilson signing marks the end of our offseason moves — I think so. I really hope they keep Prado and wind up trading JJ. I don’t think they’ll be able to get what they want for the latter before the season starts, but if he performs well during the first few months, they’ll trade him by midseason.
Though he’s one unattractive fellow, Jack Wilson is a terrific fielding SS. I think he’s a great backup. I just hope Pastornicky can hold the job and we don’t need to rely on him as a starter. He can’t strikeout any more than Gonzo…
If Pastornicky struggles and we have to rely on Wilson as a everyday SS then it’s safe to say we will be looking for a SS at the trading deadline. Maybe the Blue Jays might trade their young SS. He looks like a good player. I forgot his name though.
