You knew it was coming. Didn’t you??? Goddammit. Somebody needs to stay in his hotel room and watch Conan O’Brien when he’s up in Philadelphia. Cause some of those ladies at the bar are Phillies fans, my man. This plan of action may also be useful in New York. Your groin — and your fans!… Continue reading Sabotage!

Andruw: Still Breaking My Heart
I have this thing about inanimate objects, probably from watching The Brave Little Toaster too many times as a kid. I believe they should be treated with a certain degree of respect. I don’t like it when people smash guitars, and I hate that scene in Office Space when they beat up the copier. So… Continue reading Andruw: Still Breaking My Heart
Your Frenchy Moment of Zen
There are few things that make me as happy as Frenchy running: Especially when he’s tracking down a ball in right, oh man. Lauren, that idea for a blog called OMG FRENCHY!!! with just one of these pictures posted per day was actually really brilliant, but, in a way, maybe this blog is already that… Continue reading Your Frenchy Moment of Zen
That story last night about LaRoche wanting to meet Wyatt Earp is the reason I will always listen to the radio, even it’s lagging a full inning behind the television broadcast. Well played, Mr. Van Wieren. In shocking news: I agree with Dave O’Brien! I love Frenchy and look forward to seeing him play, but… Continue reading Wyatt Earp
I had to watch Matty save the day on Gametracker at work, and I could see Turner Field from my office building. I spent a few minutes staring at it longingly in the eighth. At least I have these marvelous AP pictures: All this physical affection seems to be doing them good. Meanwhile, we’re down… Continue reading Sweeps Week
Man, did Sports South make a big deal about Frenchy kissing Kotsay on Sunday! How many times did they replay it? I counted at least three. I was waiting for a slow motion replay with commentary about his technique. Personally, I found nothing especially hilarious about it. It’s pretty much in line with what we… Continue reading Kissgate ’08
What’s Wrong With This Picture
From an AJC article about Gonzo’s impending return: Gonzalez ate dinner at Smokey Bones barbecue every night in early April so he could catch Braves games on satellite. Every NIGHT? Isn’t he like . . . a millionaire? I suspect even the guys making the league minimum could afford satellite TV, yes? Maybe he’s in… Continue reading What’s Wrong With This Picture
Another Loss to the Nationals
Oh man. Talk of Smoltz returning to the bullpen. I laughed when it was Barry Zito; perhaps this is karma coming back to haunt me. I don’t know what to say about this season so far. I thought we would at least have one of those excitingly awful years. You know what I mean? Where… Continue reading Another Loss to the Nationals
I haven’t posted in a week because I don’t know what to say. I was fairly certain that things would eventually go badly this year, but things went so immediately and overwhelmingly badly that jokes ain’t coming easy. But I found this lovely anecdote about Devy, who has been called up to the A’s, and… Continue reading Something Cheerful
It’s A Getaway Day Miracle
This is the first good news this team has had in awhile. Get them the hell out of Colorado! On second thought, I won’t feel good about this until the plane has landed safely in Washington D.C.
