    Quite a video, Bub. That lead singer looked like some crazy mixture of Todd Rundgren and Lily Tomlin. Those ancient references brought to you by my upcoming 41st birthday.

    Happy Early bday.

    No idea who any of those people are. Well the “Jaysus” guy. I know Him. Happy birthday Steve and GO BRAVES! Any info on LaRoche? I was helping a friend celebrate her b’day…her 31st.

    G’night ABT’ers. Gotta get up early and pay the piper (study) for tonight’s game. But thanks Bravos for making it worth it.

    Go Braves!!!!!!!

    Leah – LaRoche’s hip (not groin as they said in the broadcast).

    Bub, here’s one for you.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Curt, thanks. That song put me right there, man. Right there. I saw the pony.

    If we categorized losses and wins into: regular wins, great wins, pitiful losses, and understandable losses, I would say that our great wins total this season is at least as high as our pitiful losses total. We’ve seen some game efforts to be proud of. Last night is right up there.

    I think the organization is on the rise again. Not thrilled that Bobby is hanging on, but maybe we’ll shed him before the window on this young talent is closed. Or maybe, as has been known to happen from time to time, we’ll put together some great seasons in spite of managerial weakness.

    Guys, how would you guess Frank and Bobby honestly feel about Kawakami, compared with what they had in mind when they hired him?

    Bubdylan Says:

    *Guys and gals, I meant…

    Curt Says:

    I just have a fear, after talking with Dimino, that the Braves revert to this recent philosophy of rushing guys to the majors, who aren’t ready to perform, in order to save money. I think it cost them this year, and it will cost them in years to come if they continue. If Freddie Freeman and Jason Heyward are on this team as starters next year, and if Bobby Cox is still the manager, you are continuing this cycle that has not worked. The teams of the 90s had rookies that sat on the bench and earned their way into the lineup. They didn’t throw AA players out there opening day in hopes of them having break out seasons. They treat this more like a basketball team than a baseball team. I just fear that they go through massive changes in the off season where they dump a bunch of veterans again and have a really young team that can’t compete the whole season.

    Tune in to hear that assessment again in our season wrap-up show.

    Curt, your ringtone is “Don’t Worry Be Happy” isn’t it? I knew it.

    Leah Says:

    Ahem…Bub I was just bragging on how you guys include us chicks. Don’t let it happen again. Actually, I’m used to it. My dad referred to my 3 sisters and I as “guys” all the time.

    I would really love a win tonight. I honestly think Tommy could have beaten Pedro Friday night if it weren’t for the blasted rain delay. I don’t hate that loss but I don’t have a hope meter so to speak. I’m just trying to enjoy playing good ball at this point.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Leah, I had meant the universal “guys,” of course, but wanted to be clearer. :)

    Diaz on Lee:

    ”He made more mistakes than he’s been making,” Diaz said. ”I watched film and he missed five spots in two games. I think he would tell you he didn’t hit his spots tonight.”

    Film student Matty D. I love it. (I know, they all watch film, but…)

    Curt Says:

    The thing is I always hope for the best, but know that things generally tend to turn out exactly as I expected, save the Braves signing Andruw Jones.

    Smash Blanton. Smash him!

    Leah Says:

    Why has Bobby been sitting in Philly? I don’t dislike it…just curious. Doesn’t he usually stand? Meadow!!!!!

  24. 149
    Bubdylan Says:

    He thinks he’s standing up. Nobody has the heart to tell him.

    One inning and I’ve already had about enough with these pretentious effers of “broadcasters.” BE more biased?!??!
