    @25 sooooooo, what you’re saying is that I’m right. Cause, that’s what I’m hearing. :)

    Damn – just saw this. Really wanted to see Teheran pitch in the ASG. With this, and Gattis surely not being part of the HR Derby, I’m significantly less excited now.

    Fredi, put Teheran in position to pitch in the ASG! Dang, man. Free big game experience for a guy we need to be the lead horse in the playoffs. C’mon, wake up.

    Steve Says:

    @33 – I’m all for getting on Fredi about stuff, but not this. I don’t want him messing with the rotation and the days off, etc. And I’m not convinced on the ASG being such big game experience.

    Bubdylan Says:

    if Teheran was a veteran, I’d agree the ASG isn’t big pressure experience. But it’s a big stage for Teheran, being so young. Fans and players of every single team watching, a whole league depending on you. I don’t see how you could consider that anything but big game experience.

    At PNC tonight. Bucs va DBacks but Prado’s out of the lineup. How can that happen?!?!? Also, these fans put is to shame.

    Leah – how exciting! I’m jealous. That’s truly the next ballpark I want to visit. I expect a full stadium report from you soon!

    If an usher helps you find your seat they wipe the seats with a towel before you sit in them. No-no through 5 with Jim Joyce on the crew. When the DBacks got a hit the entire stadium knew exactly what was happening and everybody groaned in unison then gave a standing ovation. First live review and it took for-ever. Beautiful view! That’s what I have so far.

    So I hated the “Pirates of the Carribean” type graphics. Looked like a minor league team and seemed messy to me. I never realized how big the Ted is and am excited about a smaller park. Prado wore his pants long instead of hiked up to the knee which made me sad but he got a beautiful hit to continue a rally. I miss him. They post pitch variance by negative inches horizontally and vertically. Which is kinda cool and would be awsome if I understood more about pitching. Their organist couldn’t hold a candle to Matthew Kaminski but then, who can? Great experience. Beautiful park. Got Parrot Pirates Autograph.

    …And just like that, the Braves look worse than they did before the 8-game win streak.

    These teams are bad, but this is still pretty fun.

    I want 10 in a row.

    Leah – very cool stuff on PNC. Love that pitch variance info. That’s crazy. And the pirate script does sound pretty cheesy.

    The small stadium factor really struck me when I went to the Twins stadium a few years ago. That, and how poorly lit the Ted is at night. No light towers in the outfield make it darker than any other stadium I’ve been to at night.

    jo-bu Says:

    @44: I cannot wait for the new stadium for the lighting at night alone. Try being a photographer under those lights attempting to freeze an action image.

    The two stadiums with the best lights at night that I’ve ever seen are Dodger Stadium and Kauffman Stadium (Royals) and I hope the new Braves’ stadium follows their lead. I know for a fact that the Braves’ front office have been wanting to upgrade those lights for years but could never get it done.
