Hey Leah. The Smoltz retirement night is a definite maybe for me. I would be there without question except it’s one of my boys’ birthday weekend (one who has no interest in going to a game) and I’ll have family in town, etc. etc. So, I won’t know for until it gets closer to the game.
Also, give us another chance on Twitter. We monitor it much more closely than in the past. It’s really not a bad way to communicate with us.
I don’t know if this is average, a few, or a lot, but out of Cahill’s 94 pitches tonight, he had only 13 that were called for strikes. Seems like the Braves are going up there being very smart about their pitch selection.
This week has been incredible. Watching our offense reminds me of how the Phillies have been over the last couple of years, and how their hitters would never give away at-bats. Everything’s clicking, and we’re doing so good that we’re not even giving Fredi the option of putting on the hit-and-run!
In non-Braves news, I went and saw “Cabin In the Woods” today. If you’re a horror movie fan, I think you’ll appreciate this one a lot.
#128, first paragraph, I’m with you. The approach is almost more exciting than seeing all the runs. The marks of a smart offense, to me, are patience and going opposite field. They’re a clinic on both right now.
Leah, drove my sister to B-ham to catch the Artist in a great theater. Loved it. Will get it on Blu-ray the day it hits the shelves. Maybe a bit too heavy on the Singin’ in the Rain rip-off dept at the end, but I forgive it completely. A wonderful movie experience.
Speaking of Blu-ray, if any of you have made that jump, Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol is a must-have. Leah, Brad Bird from Iron Giant, Ratatouille, and the Incredibles directed it.
MI is on the movie night list. Just loved The Artist!
Curt, I believe June 8th. Or maybe the 6th but I think the 8th. If only there was some sort of electronic data base we could turn to and find out. Bugger.
