I cried once: Darrell Evans got traded for basically nothing. I think I was eight when that happened.
I vomited once, too. The Mets had scored something like 15 runs; David Palmer threw inside to Gary Carter; and Carter and Strawberry came out and beat him up while the rest of the Braves watched. At that point, I had run out of beer and had moved on to gin. I hate gin.
we hated on Frank Wren…I will admit to a bit of that….but that was ages ago and the Frank Wren redemption tracker is on 95% redeemed in my book…time has proven him right, and we were a little bit sissy to cry so hard about how they blew all the goodwill with the three kings…Smoltz and Glavine have looked rather foolish…especially in contrast to Maddux. I want Frank Wren on my side in a street fight.
we don’t hate Bobby…we just…well its love/hate….its realism, totally agree with Curt. even though i hate him.
I love the love, the hate, and the “OMG did he just say that” comments from Bub. This website makes the Braves bearable. Bub, Wed. Hanson pitched 8 shutout 3 hit innings striking out the last batter he faced with flare and Soriano gave up two runs in the 9th which, sadly, was enough to give the Astros the win. Last night with McCann’s three hit night along with the offense that finally decided to show up the Braves were ahead 7-9 in the 9th. Gonzo comes on bringing his drama and with two on gets Tejada to hit into a double play to end the game. The double play ball looked similar to Chipper’s contribution to the game along with his TWO errors. I think his mind was on GaTech and Clemson.
I’m not good at speculating the future but I have all sorts of thoughts about the past. It used to drive me crazy when Chipper would be put on the DL…again. I will never question him again. Please for the love of all that is good go on the DL when something’s killing him.
I think it is odd that he wins the batting title just a year ago and now all this noise. Did he get poisoned? I think it is a slump, and that next year he is fine. Unless he has stopped taking the PEDs…or is feeling the side-effects after long years of use….no don’t go there.
JJ is looking just unbelievable. And how about the defense? Chipper’s candor is, as always with him, very impressive (and not just because I called this to a T in last week’s show). What other future Hall of Famer, who just signed his fat extension, would say things like that? It makes me respect Chipper even more.
I respect him also but don’t you think he needs to be benched for a while? He needs a super long rest or something. I’m glad you think he’s cool for next year but right now he’s got nothing. Also, do you think it starts messing with a hitter’s head when pitchers walk you intentionally or pitch around you too much? Maybe you start swinging at junk more or is he just tired? Is that too many questions for one comment?
Always keepin it real Curt. Glad Tcc didn’t see that, he would have gone balistic. Weren’t they testing on a regular basis last year when he was awesome? Anyway, good win last night. JJ rocks and I’m even more excited about next season after seeing him shutout the cards.
Someone brought it up on talk radio yesterday morning and it had never occurred to me – or maybe I never wanted to think about it being a possibility – but if everyone else gets the glaring eye of doubt, why not him.
