    Bub, I’m not nearly as cynical as that guy is to think Nolan mailed it in and didn’t want to make that movie. It was too big and too good for that. I certainly think it merits several viewings and will be much more appreciated with age. I just thought he offered an interesting take.

    Spiderman, on the other hand, blew.

    Follow up on #119 — 2008, with Kelly Johnson (11), Gregor Blanco (13), and Josh Anderson (10).

    David Says:

    …Before that, it was 2004, with Giles (17), Furcal (29), and JD Drew (12).

    David, cool trivia. I was way off. I figured McCann, Glaus, and Hinske.

    @129 – I could have sworn Greg Norton and Corky Miller led a few years back.

    Ugh – 129 was me.

    Steve Says:

    And by 129, I meant 130. This is getting better and better.

    So if the Braves don’t get a new starter, do you think that in their minds they would if they started Medlen and caught lightning in a bottle with Sheets?

    Heard on Mike and Mike that Grienke is most likely going to the Rangers because they have the most to give up for him.

    ham Says:

    so then, its Hudson, Hanson, Sheets, Medlen, Minor (?) or does Delgado go 5th?

  10. 135
    Frigatedoc Says:

    @134

    You know Hammy, on paper that isn’t so bad….. but we ALL KNOW how good the Braves look on paper and how well they perform!

  11. 136
    Curt Says:

    Yeah, maybe they move Medlen to starting and add some BP depth instead

  12. 137
    Frigatedoc Says:

    So I guess the Braves signed Miguel Batista instead of Grienke or anyone else for that matter….. As my son says EPIC FAIL!

    Walker Says:

    Angels just acquired Grienke. Rosenthal reports.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Out in the cold, boys. Oh well, bring on the Medlen Era.

    Bubdylan Says:

    This is a very satisfying game so far. 5 off Hamels, a homer from LH McCann off LH Hamels. Ben Sheets looking good. First game for Hamels since his big contract. This is fun.

  16. 141
    Walker Says:

    I love how the Phillies had a little hope coming into the series and we are squashing them. LoL

  17. 142
    David Says:

    140 and 141 — no kidding. It seems like Hamels was the only good thing happening in Philly this year, and he has one of those games that makes them think twice about that huge contract they just gave him.

  18. 143
    Bubdylan Says:

    I have a question for the universe: Why are Harper and Strasberg(sp?) both studs while Heyward and Hanson aren’t?

  19. 144
    Bubdylan Says:

    I have to say, if it’s a Braves-Pirates one-game playoff, I would be very excited to see that. We’re the team that cursed them to 20 years of obscurity. Hard to get a better narrative going than that one. If that game ended in a walk-off, for either team, it’d be legendary.

  20. 145
    Bubdylan Says:

    Not to mention, we end the year in a series at Pirates. So it would be our 4th game in a row against them. Interesting.

  21. 146
    Frigatedoc Says:

    Looks like Uggla went hitless again tonight. There are pitchers in the American Leage who hit for better avg.

  22. 147
    Bubdylan Says:

    If my math is right, here is some good news:

    Percentages of remaining schedules played against teams over .500 by the Braves and their WC competition.

    Braves: 25.4%
    Pirates: 34.9%
    Cardinals: 43.5%
    Dodgers: 59%

    Steve Says:

    @144/145- so true. And all the flashback packages on the broadcast would be great.

    I realize this is a change of heart, but I’m very concerned that the Dempster/Delgado deal will rise from the ashes on Monday or Tuesday. If one of the big three go in a trade, the return has got to be under contract thru at least next year. Ivecreally come around to that.

  24. 149
    Ham Says:

    You guys! Have you been under a rock?! We got Bautista! I can’t believe the Blue Jays were willing to give him up, but who cares?! BOMB City time! Wren strikes again!

    I mean now we can say that we didn’t only pick up a 41 year old, triple-retread that a team “worse” than us threw on the garbage heap, while the rest of the league made real trades. We can say that, right? Right? We got Bautista?

    Wait . . . Miguel … Wait . . . No . . . Really?

    Sigh.

    Curt Says:

    It must be nice to root for a team where owners take that role seriously.
