Great show guys. Glad to be back on board listening. Makes my Monday drive in (except this week) much more pleasant.
I had a question about a point raised during the show with Martin. You all seemed to chime in that we weren’t forced to play guys like last year, and I wasn’t sure what you were talking about. Was that because of injury, or contract stuff?
Well, where it counted, our pitcher got jacked by a good hitter and our hitters got stopped by a great pitcher. Disappointing, but not embarassing. A hit and a walk for Heyward, if it’s true they awarded him a hit on that possible error. Chipper got good wood. Glaus hit.
Wade, that talk was about guys with minor league options. You can only send guys down a certain number of times before they have to clear waivers. In the past few years we have had guys like Blaine Boyer who were out of options and could be claimed by any team should they be sent down so the Braves were kind of forced to keep them on the major league roster or risk losing them. This year, they don’t have any guys that are out of options so no one will have to make the team that might not necessarily deserve it.
Finished the podcast earlier this week. Nice job, guys. Missed you, young Hamilton. Bub: agreed on Norton. I typed something witty via thumbs at the hairdresser this evening about Gandy transcribing interviews, making me reminisce about my younger days…and then I hit the stupidest Crackberry key EVER and lost it all. Wasn’t worth re-typing. Go Braves!
I have a question…if Frenchy had stayed Frenchy and not turned into Failcoeur where would we have put J-Hey Kid (kudos Hammy)? Of course it doesn’t matter or make any dif I was just wondering. Remember when Hamilton said a “Frenchy” kiss was when you lick her cheek by mistake? Remember that? Definitely one of the funnies comments.
