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!
“Mistakes Were Made”
Here’s a quote from Heap in the AJC article about last night’s game: “We made some mental mistakes on the bases early . . .” We, Heap? That game had a surreal feeling to it. Things went a little too perfectly for the Nationals on the night of their new stadium’s opening and in the… Continue reading “Mistakes Were Made”
You Asked For It, You Got It
Last year I complained that we didn’t get a truck story. This year? Behold. Clearly this is a sign that I have become a real mover and shaker in the Braves blogging world. I’m sure Chipper will be showing up in my “chat room” to call me a douchebag any day now.
“He Wants to See the Kid Hit!”
Chipper’s fury after that check-swing call by Davidson was pretty glorious, and based on his post-game quotes, I don’t think he calmed down for quite awhile afterward. I wonder if all those dogs they had at the park yesterday were barking along with him? The official site collected this quote on the incident: “Looking at… Continue reading “He Wants to See the Kid Hit!”

Is it just me, or was that game about ten minutes long? I had such a great time watching it, it was over too soon! But I certainly appreciated Huddy’s quick innings — he has truly blown me away so far this season. I was one of Huddy’s biggest detractors last year, and it’s so… Continue reading Larry Loves NYC
Baseball: Best Enjoyed In Your Boxers, With Donuts
My notes from the game on ESPN today (we beat the Phillies 7-4), and explanations: Chipper mohawk? — Did anyone else notice that Chipper was rocking this kind of half-mohawk thing? The hair on the side of his head was shorter, and on top it was pointed in kind of a v-shape. Is that just… Continue reading Baseball: Best Enjoyed In Your Boxers, With Donuts
“Dude, I Might Be Able To Throw”
We won both of our games today, Hudson looked good, Heap and Frenchy almost simultaneously hit homers while playing across town from each other, our top outfield prospect (whose name is Jones, naturally) looked great at the plate, Chipper’s injury is minor (again) and hell, even on the Hampton front, things are looking up: he’s… Continue reading “Dude, I Might Be Able To Throw”
The game last night was a fun one to watch, despite the rookie pitcher Acosta who threw it away in the 9th. Bobby probably has Nam Flashback-like memories of pulling pitchers after last year — he didn’t look too happy when he had to take Acosta out in the 9th. Hitting looked good, relief pitching… Continue reading Open-Minded Frenchy??
“They Seem Like They’re Annoyed”
We lost to the Cardinals today, but Smoltz was great, Heap went 2-3, and Chipper’s injury sounds pretty minor. Yates somehow managed to give up a home run to Rick Ankiel, of all people, which is probably not a good sign. Frenchy is continuing to hit pretty consistently in these spring training games (he got… Continue reading “They Seem Like They’re Annoyed”
Bunions 1, Chipper 0
Chipper just got taken out of our game against the Cardinals – something happened with his right front foot during his first at-bat. It probably has something to do with the bunions that nearly defeated him last year. Ugh. Hopefully it won’t take long to correct. To be honest, I’ve never quite understood the story… Continue reading Bunions 1, Chipper 0
