All my boys are “lights out!” Hanson is “unhittable.” I’m drooling again, ain’t I? Whoops, I crapped my pants–glad I have a diaper. Where is Corky when you need him?

Yea I understand about quotes….it’s just misleading. He was hitless because he allowed no hits. Not because someone said he allowed no hits. No big deal….that little stuff just bugs me
I once got a birthday card from Grandma that had “Love You” in quotes.

Epinephrine, more like $23M for Kawakami. Too much of a risk that I don’t think was a random signing since Wren,Sheurholz etc. were scouting the Japanese pitchers for a few years. But, was it the smartest move to spend $7.5M on, like some have said here- a wild card?
I don’t trust Soriano and it gets worse, he’s signed to a pretty big contract and has little trade value because of health. He’s the one you just cross your fingers on and hope he finds a way to stay motivated in ‘09.

garlickHe’s probably going to retire in 2 years though,
how ya figure?
Braves will draft a 3b prospect this year. Chipper will get his 3 year extension and in 3 years that prospect will be ready.

Schafer’s Wafers, there’s only a 25% chance a prospect will ever even make it to the big leagues if drafted after the 1st round. Let alone be nearly as good as Chipper Jones. And in the 1st round (1st rounders have a 44% chance of reaching the majors), the Braves will take the best player available, not necessarily a 3B.

I agree but I guarantee they draft a 3b in the first 5 rounds.
who cares about an abitration clock…if these young guys are the best players, get them to the show now…..no need to sacrifice a year just to save a few bucks.

I love talking baseball as much as any of you on here. So, I understand the desire to talk end of year trades and prospect replacements.
It just seems to me that with so many immediate questions about this years team and the final 25, I am having a hard time thinking about who will replace Chipper or which starter will be traded.
The obvious questions for me are who plays centerfield, does Hanson make the staff, and what about our left-handed relief.

Lunatic Fringe — That depends on your dynamics with your daughter and your family, what kind of things you allow as a parent, etc — but no, I would not recommend letting a 12 year old daughter watching it. It’s very graphic in its violence, and while there are some things that it doesn’t show, there’s plenty of disturbing images in it.
N Nine — the operative word in that article is “eventual,” as in in a few years when Hoss is ready to hang up his cleats.

i read your Q and A. good job, great answers, but i cant believe you said the on player you would want from one of the NL east teams is adam dunn. i would have said carlos beltran. slugging, switching hitting out fielder, with good defense.

DOB/ Fellow Die-Hards,
What are your thoughts on Mike Moustakas as a possible trade target? The Royals have Alex Gordon at third base and Moustakas is still a few years off. Baseball America rates his power at 70 on the 20-80 scale. It seems like the talent and timetable (late 2010 arrival) make him a good fit to replace Chipper. Did I say “replace Chipper”? That felt weird.
Any guess as to what the Braves would have to package to swing a prospect like this?

Anybody want to bet Chippie won’t play in a hundred games. Washed up, white trash bum. Please someone tell him not to open his mouth. He showes how stupid he really is.

I like the way Yunel is playing. I think he is going to be one of the team leaders in the next few years like so many people have said. He is such a natural, fluid, exciting player and I can’t wait to see how much better he gets with a few more seasons under his belt.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
