Roman Gal, I’m afraid Brian would be the slowest baserunner on just about any team. LOL
But I applaud his off-season efforts to trim down. He needs to stick with it. I’m sure he’ll be able to feel the benefits of being lighter behind the plate and on the bases.

Minnesota Jacket, Braves Paisan, and Cameron:
I do agree that the Braves have made improvements to the team this year and I hope that I am wrong, but I don’t see enough improvements to make up the 17-20 games that we need to from last year.
I think Lowe is going to be great,and Jurrjens good, but after that, I’m just not to sure. Vasquez has a career ERA of 4.32, Kawakami has never faced the talent that he is about to, and Glavine never should have been signed as there are many other better options for our number five starter.
We have a good line up against MLB hopefuls , but before I get to excited, I want to see what they do against MLB pitching. Time will only tell. Like I said, I hope that I am wrong and I will gladly eat all the crow that you can dish if I am but until then, I refuse to get my hopes up.
THE BEAR Illegitimi non carborundum

I didn’t pull anything dishonest. I went back and here is what I was referring to.

This is Bowman Article on 11/17/08 about Ohman.
He was looking about 3-4 mill yr.
The Braves have said they are interested in re-signing Will Ohman and they further proved this on Monday, when they provided the left-handed reliever a contract offer. While terms of the offer weren’t revealed, Ohman viewed it as a sign that he’s wanted in Atlanta.”
Where I screwed up was in the date. It was made last fall and I missed the date when I read it.
For the record, don’t ever accuse me of lying again. I make mistakes just like everyone else but lying is not my bag.

OK scoots, and he did tank last year. You can attach whatever definition to “tanking” you like. He blew out last year and they tried and tried to find a reason. Finally they decided to fix something in his elbow or shoulder or wherever it was and this year he has had a cold for God’s sake.
I am sick and tired of the guy.

We were thinking about driving down to see Braves vs. Yankees but it looks sold out based on Ticketmaster. Does anyone know if there are usually tickets floating around outside the stadium?

Sorry, to clarify I mean the Braves vs. Yankees game tomorrow in Orlando.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
