The 5 game win streak.  Chipper’s impact. Heyward’s emergence and the 4th outfielder spot.

    Is anybody elses picture of the game cut off on the left side? I can’t see the Braves runs or the inning.

    My screen is fine but I’m listening to the AZ announcers brag on Freddie.

    My screen is fine, too.

    Bub, that sucks about your mysterious pain. Hope it’s been a better day.

    It really has been a heady week for the Bravos. Haven’t felt this good about the team in a long time.

    Prado not happy. Just said some swear words in Espanol.

    Leah Says:

    #104 does anyone else feel like the last 10 games have been a fluke and fear the team will be like last year’s team again any day?

    Leah, #106, I don’t expect the pitching to hold up this well, but I think the offense is legit. I thought that coming into the season, even with my poor hopes for the bullpen and starters.

    Bubdylan Says:

    *by starters, I mean rotation.

    Leah Says:

    Bub, I’m afraid we’ve been listening to Curt too much.

    Adam Says:

    The screen fixed itself after a few minutes. I’ll take it.

    #106 Yes. Yes 1000 times.

    Bubdylan Says:

    If you mean because Curt’s pessimistic, I have to claim originality for my own pessimism. It’s the first Spring I’ve ever entertained such dismal hopes for the Braves. I thought we’d get very bad years from Hanson, JJ, Pastornicky, Chipper, and the manager, possibly Prado and Hudson, too. Also thought a general funk and bad team chemistry would abound. I’ve been mostly wrong. Still expect the pitching to fade some, but the team’s got more potential than I gave them credit for.

    Prado? You doubted…wha?

    Bubdylan Says:

    Another OPP field hit for Heyward. I wonder if anyone’s keeping track of our hitters going the other way. The new hitting coach seems like the real deal. The plate approaches are night and day from last year. Reminds me of the Red Sox when they put together their hitting philosophy a few years ago. The Rays, too.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Yeah, I doubt Prado every year. It can’t be helped.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Ho hum, 5 run lead off Cahill. Completely expected.

    Walker Says:

    Beautiful Beautiful slide by Chipper

    Curt Says:

    I prefer to look at it as idealism. I always believe things should be better, and spend a lot of time thinking of ways to make them so, or why they can’t be.

    This week has been a lot of fun.

    Leah Says:

    Are the D-Backs this bad? Loving the general awesomeness and I may be madly in love with Greg Walker.

  19. 119
    Walker Says:

    This is how I dreamed the Braves offense would be.

  20. 120
    Bubdylan Says:

    Look at Prado taking all these pitches with Cahill on the ropes. The stuff dreams are made of.

  21. 121
    Leah Says:

    #114 Dead to me.

  22. 122
    Bubdylan Says:

    D backs are banged up, Leah. So, no. Definitely not this bad offensively.

  23. 123
    Leah Says:

    Beat up already…that ain’t good. Neither is watching Prado hobble around home plate. In other news, hearing other organists play reminds me how much I like that Matthew guy.

    Offense….yes. 7-0 braves. Heyward and freeman and Mcann are on fire.

    Bub – I had a similar thing happen last summer. I was on a business trip and I had a terrible gut pain right around my kidney. I was so uncomfortable sitting in a plane, could barely walk. Went through a bunch of tests, including an ultrasound. They found nothing. It stopped and I thought I must have passed a kidney stone. But the test results said no, it was not a kidney stone. It came back once more and then just went away. The last doctor said it was probably infection in the lining of the small intestines. Can happen from food, from almost anything. It hasn’t happened at all since then.

    Steve, Curt, did you guys see Anne’s tweet about ABT meeting up the night they retire Smoltz’s number? Not sure if we could get tickets but it’s a good thought. I was just curious since I didn’t see a reply and ya know…you guys are so good about responding to tweets.
