That’s a good article. I have to admit it’s pretty convincing, even if it backs my favorite Podcast Villain.
I would only add that teams in “the year before their supposed to be really good” often go ahead and become really good. How many times have you heard it said, “… and this wasn’t even supposed to be their year. Next year was when everybody said it was on track to come together.”
Go Braves. 2010 or 2011. Hell, we’ve already waited this long.
I actually like the Woodford Reserve League MLB Sunday Red unis. For a while it seems like that spot fell to Smoltz when he still had his good stuff. Sure, it’s a marketing thing but I have good memories of having the tv on in the garage/basement and the earbuds in, listening to the radio broadcast while I would do yard work. When something big happened I would run back inside to see the replay.
Bub, not sure about your point there. Red, yes but they don’t have that home grown look which we love, right? One of the most important things my dad passed down to me was the love of a tomato sandwitch with mayo and a thin slice of vidalia onion. Man! I can’t wait for that!
No, no, no to TP as a manager. The Francoeur thing was enough to show that. He’s too timid, passive aggressive. He got his feelings hurt with Frenchy about the Texas guy and just held it in and let it fester. And then made a second mistake by admitting that to the press. Too personal. Too icky.
We need a guy who is either very relaxed or else very confident (both would be nice). TP is neither.
