Show #176: The End of an Era

A whole lot on Chipper, a little on JJ, a little less on Vizcaino, and no Steve.  Again.

    I dont remember the game but was Gregg calling those pitches against the Marlins batters as well?

    Also was he investigated for obviously being a dumbass? God bless the dead.

    Nate – predictions this week, and a guest.

    Walker, Gregg was fired when MLB purged the umpires the year they threatened to walk out, or walked out. I really can’t remember. He was one of the few who was not rehired. It is believed that a great deal due to his calls in that game. He was also consistently voted one of the worst umpires in the league. That game was certainly his opus, but he was a crap ump before that display.

    Oh, we also got picked up by an online radio station out of Baltimore. Herb FM. We are going nuclear. Everyone write them to tell them how much you love the show.

    #101: Great question. I have no idea. Anyone else remember?

    Curt Says:

    I can’t imagine those calls were going both ways if all these years later, it is still deemed so egregious.

    I can’t believe no one was thrown out. Bobby should have been tossed in the 2nd inning.

    The Wiki article only mentioned his zone against Braves’ hitters, but it didn’t really emphasize it in that way, so I dunno.

    The more I hear Martin Prado speak the more I love him.

    Walker Says:

    I guess Juan Franciso is short term insurance because even though he has power he doesn’t walk at all. The strikeouts are too high and he is injury prone.

    Walker Says:

    However his batting averages are pretty high meaning when he makes contact they turn into hits. Maybe Greg Walker can teach him plate discipline. I would say this is a solid trade with nothing to lose. Hoover was solid but going nowhere in our system.

    I hope somebody in the dugout is preaching patience to the Rev. Let’s go Ski!

    Leah Says:

    Wait…who just swung on junk and hit into a dp? The Rev needs to preach patience to that guy. ST games are confusing in the 9th.

    Pure Says:

    I wonder how many wins you guys will predict. Maybe: Steve: 90; Curt: 80. Ham always seems undecided so he’ll probably play it safe and say 85.

  13. 113
    Curt Says:

    80 is way too high. Come on. Be real.

  14. 114
    Bubdylan Says:

    I’ll say 84 wins for these Bravos.

    Steve Says:

    Just finished an interview with DOB. It will be part of the predictions show.

    Walker Says:

    Braves will be successful because a surpisingly good offense. Uggla ,prado, heyward, and Bourn all have big years. Hanson and Beachy dominate. The Braves win 92 games and the division.
