Spring Has Officially Arrived

The AJC pictures from spring training haven’t really captivated me so far, but this is an instant classic: Porter is totally giving them the talk. An annual tradition, I’m sure. Note that none of the big stars were required to attend. Kelly looks completely offended.

The Scooter Situation

Scooter has entered platoon land, and he doesn’t want to talk about it. Dave O’Brien assumes this means he’s pissed. I of course came to the same conclusion, but I kind of hate to see Scooter called out for his dissatisfaction with the situation, since he’s already on Bobby’s bad/platoon side. I think it’s interesting… Continue reading The Scooter Situation

Break Out the Free Agent Jokes: Scooter’s Gettin’ Hitched!

I have actual stuff to do at work today, since I’m blowing this popsicle stand next week and heading home to Atlanta after three long years in Athens (it may be the birthplace of Heap, but this town is not for me), but I’m still going to take time out of my workday to post,… Continue reading Break Out the Free Agent Jokes: Scooter’s Gettin’ Hitched!

“Strike After Strike”

It’s too bad that Redman’s first quality start as a Brave was wasted on a night when we were completely shut down by a dominant opposing pitcher. I should probably disclose that, last night, I, um. Kind of fell in love with Rich Hill. I’m sure I wouldn’t look twice if I just passed him… Continue reading “Strike After Strike”

The Rise of the Silver Catcher

It’s promotion schedule time! This year it’s mostly the old standards — a night where you can win the game worn jerseys (tastefully abbreviated as JOOB on the schedule), t-shirt giveaways, bat nights, hat nights, and plenty of kids running the bases all summer long. They also offer a sneak preview of the Heap statue… Continue reading The Rise of the Silver Catcher
