Bub, I was re-reading past comments from months ago (because I’m lame) and I saw where you stopped commenting on DOB’s blog b/c you were tired of always being the funny guy. I take back comment # 74. Don’t go!
I said that? I’m not surprised. I mean, sometimes I’m funny and sometimes I ain’t. And honestly, I like being lame and not-funny at my own discretion, and also taking a jab at serious baseball sometimes. But over on DOB’s blog, my job as a comedian was like, talked about so much I couldn’t be myself. Plus DOB is ungracious as hell (sorry, it’s true), but I always felt tempted to win his favor, which made me feel slimey. So, there, a full confession.
But over here, nobody (but you) is all that impressed.
Yes, I’m drunk in the afternoon. In my defense, I just took my final final and I’m off for a full month! Woo Hoo!
lol, Wren says there’s an unidentified team that might trade for Lowe/Soriano. Wren, ya do the deal. If the trade piece is Corky Miller, you pull the trigger. Please, ‘fore we all have heart attacks around here.
Okay, a little warning about Twitter, folks. Yikes.
If anybody has your email address, but doesn’t know your full name, they WILL know your full name after you join Twitter. Does everybody already know this?
When you sign up, Twitter digs into your email account to tell you who all is in your contacts that is also a Twitter member. And THEN, if that person happens to have registered with Twitter under their full name (even though, of course, that isn’t revealed publicly, until NOW), Twitter will spit out the full name at you in their little “Blah Blah is also a member of twitter” message.
You’re probably safe then? I don’t know. Have somebody that you know, that has you in their email contacts, join twitter, and see if it rats you out to them.
Cuz, when I joined, I found out the last name of a girl who’s email addy I had from years ago – a baseball contact – and of course we didn’t exchange any real info. But Twitter is all like “Jane Smith is a twitterer” or whatever. And I’m like, Jane Smith? Is that the Jane S from the Braves board? And, yep, it is.
Out of curiosity (and future plans) I googled her and, knowing she was a school teacher, threw in a few indicators, and presto. I found her and where she works in three clicks.
Somebody needs to alert them to that immediately. Not everybody in someone’s email contact list is on a both-names basis.
Hey Bubs, the Twits are just not “me”. I’m ok with that. I am excited about the new ABT Show and all the talk about “SoreyArmo”(now that was a great line) and of course Wagner and Saito.
Where I diverge from the consensus on here is that I would keep LaRoche if at all possible. I think he can do the job and if you just want to save money by signing someone else, you won’t get what he can do. My opinion.
Cold rain falling tonight. Finding comfort in “69 days until pitchers and catchers report”!!
Oh, I want LaRoche. Have I not said that? That’s the exact 1b I want (I mean, that’s the realistic option I like best). I want an identity as a run-prevention team – that’s my newest gig, see. And his defense is swell.
Then, in the second half, blammo – he’s a slugger, too.
But, the bridge-to-freeman kind of contract doesn’t make much sense from LaRoche’s side, best I can tell. Plus Wren doesn’t seem hot on the idea. Maybe he’s just quiet. A two-year deal would be great, though, wouldn’t it? Then Freeman gets TOTALLY comfy before the big dance.
Freeman and Heyward have been mentioned in the same breath for some time now but I do believe that Freeman AND the Braves would benefit by holding him back for now. A two year deal for AL would take care of 1B, Adam, Chipper, Da Bravos and FF.
JC is cool..just you tubed some of his stuff. How about checking out Brenda Lee’s “Coming on Strong”. Great song and rendition. Go for the older rendition. “Memory’s of a Love gone Wrong, Baby coming on strong” Hope that doesn’t reflect on any “done” or coming up deals for the Bravisto Mens!! Night all.
Braves interested in Gload to replace Norton. Please, for the love of all that is holy, replace Norton. Would Wren really do business with the enemy to get Nick Swisher? Do we want Nick Swisher? Why did I pick “Hammy I’m too good for the message board” as my fav?
Oh, and in case you missed it…I want better than LaRoche.
Okay, Will, I really did strain my brain to find the right words to search out the Soriano thing, but it’s just not coming.
I did not make it up, and I didn’t file it away in the “Likely True” part of my brain because some blogger said it (unless they were quoting – it’s possible I believed a quote without a link, very possible). I think I heard or read it someplace somewhat legit. Braves players questioning his lingering injury/ surgery at some point.
Now, the guy-who-knew-Soriano’s-doctor hypochondriac part, that was just somebody saying that. But I think that’s the way I represented it.
