Good show guys…I enjoyed it. I’m not as crazy about College Football as everyone else is (or so it seems). I’m a Vols fan, but I do follow & root for UGA & GT. UT’s QB sucks, always has really, Greg Norton is more likely to be a .400 career hitter than Jonathan Crompton is to be a competent QB. Period. I’m glad F-A-T Phil Fulmer is gone, he should’ve been fired 2 or 3 years ago. For Bobby Cox’s blunders which (are few IMO compared to other skippers) are well documented…Good ‘ol #6 looks like Connie Mack compared to Fulmer’s competency as a head coach.
Can’t wait to hear the interview and enjoyed the podcast. Curt, are you a music guy or is “crescendo” just a word you like to throw around because it makes you sound brilliant? I’m a little angry with the guys too Hammy. I start watching a game expecting the Braves to win every time. They play awesome one game and look like little leaguers the next. But I’m enjoying watching this year way better than last year and already can’t wait til next year.
Speaking of football, I just started reading Michael Lewis’s best-selling 2006 book “The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game”. Has anyone read it? It’s awesome so far.
Nice show, fellas. So, why all this talk of closers…when the talk really should be: why the heck don’t pitchers pitch a full game anymore? Or, more to the point: why aren’t they allowed to? I know this was a bit of buzz in last show’s Comments, but (Bobby-bashing aside), I don’t think the Braves are singular in this, right? Resting your relievers, especially when they’re all tommy-johns-ed out seems like a smart thing, and not just forcing a starting pitcher to finish what he started. Hanson the other day, without question, should have gone the distance. Not his fault, we don’t need to re-hash that. I guess I’m asking: is pitching 6 innings just “what we do these days” ? I know: Closers are paid to close. …but they get paid whether they’re on the bench or not. I feel like a broken record, or a little deja vu-y, but felt like typing. Beat those stinking Mets, fellas. Go Braves.
