Spring training won’t start for over three months, only one of the three ceremonies in the Former Housemates’ Offseason Wedding Extravaganza has gone down, but if you ask me, the season has officially begun. So sing out that tired old tune, AJC: Hampton is injured. I’ve got goosebumps!
Glavine is back! He looks scared!
So, I hated Troy Tulowitizki all season. The little bugger turned an unassisted triple play against us! But I felt kind of pissed off/personally insulted/confused when he didn’t win the NL Rookie of the Year award this afternoon. Why?? In other news, Andruw is still going to be macking on chicks at Twist in the […]
No, I’m not talking about myself, though “phoneless in Mexico” is actually a fairly accurate metaphor for my situation for the past month or so. We’re all moved into our new house — only twenty minutes from Turner Field! — and the new routine is starting to fall into place, though we still don’t have […]
How delightful was it to watch the Phillies get swept? Go Rockies! Now, please enjoy my dumb opinions about the year. I’ve included the winners (and losers) from last year to add some perspective. Let me know what you guys think of my choices. Best All Around Player: For me, it was Matt Diaz. His […]

Skip made it 100% enjoyable — I barely noticed that the regular starters who hadn’t already boarded the charter sucked on a comical level — and I’m really, really glad I recorded his […]
From last night’s AJC wrap: Afterward, 23-year-old Francoeur praised some other, less-established Braves youngsters, including reliever Joey Devine, who got slugger Lance Berkman to fly out with the bases loaded to end the seventh inning. Well, at least somebody has mentioned something in the press about the good work he’s done up here this year. […]
Irretrievable playoff race aside, yesterday was perfect. We went to the game, and much like the last game we went to in 2006 (where we also won in extra innings, thanks in large part to the other team’s defensive errors), it was the most fun we’d had at the park this season. FOUR Braves sang […]
Now that was just downright heartwarming. Way to go, Huddy (and Heap).
Where do they come up with this stuff? It’s awesome, don’t get me wrong, but I’m left wondering if it was all Chuckie’s idea (quite possible), or if he just walked into the clubhouse one day and some PR girl came up to him and said, “GUESS WHAT?!”
