Thanks guys. I’ve started listening regularly this year and love it.
My do-over would be sending down Medlen to be stretched out. If I remember correctly we lost at least two games that the bullpen blew during that time and then we put him back in the bullpen. When we put him back in the rotation he didn’t need to stretch out. Complete waste.
@42 Not to split hairs but we were sitting perpendicular to the infield fly ball hit in the outfield two feet behind a flailing Pete Kozma. The first two items I saw thrown were foul of 3rd base. Just sayin…no where close to any umpire. If MLB doesn’t want a dangerous situation they shouldn’t hire bone headed umpires.
So not over it…
I say kudos to A- Rod for leveraging monster 2007 season into that huge contract. The Yankees made the mistake of giving him way too many years instead of shortening the length of the contract and just upping his AAV or Annual Average Value. Id rather overpay and aging player over 4-5 years instead of giving him 7-9 years just to lower his AAV.
Also, he may be overpaid but he was a 2 win player according to WAR which is good. He still gets on base.
But he is fairly criticized as a horrible postseason performer.
Create a towel with a cool name related to the Atlanta Braves.
Set all proceeds to go to an Atlanta charity/school.
Get permission from MLB and the Braves where necessary.
Start producing and selling them…
Maybe it will catch on and put a dent in the foam tomahawks…
Was at a coffee shop in Atlantic Station today (big midtown Atlanta shopping area) and in walks Freddie Freeman and girl friend. I got totally star struck and successfully fought the urge to go talk to him.
@71 – I really wanted to talk to him and congratulate him on his season, etc, but he immediately sat at the bar/counter with his girlfriend and that felt too intrusive somehow. If was just at a table or a couch or something like that, I would have absolutely spoken to him.
