No More Bobby: No, honestly, it’s not.
DOB, I have to say, that Kings of Leon song is so gay.
I mean, I like that Brian at least has branched out from the typical rap/ country combination that every player seems to be into.
I will never understand how even teenage girls like my cousin find both gangster rap and the most god awful modern country conservative propaganda bs music equally appealing. It’s all @#$%.
Sorry, I just hate everything I guess.
Every country song these days on the radio is like a three minute little blue collar fantasy about living in the “real America”, drivin’ a f***in’ pick-up truck, punchin’ a clock man… sung by a bunch of f***ing cowboy hat wearing millionaires.
And why do we all have to pretend like rap doesn’t suck. Rap is awful. Of all the great music and art black people have given the world, rap is the one thing that doesn’t evolve. It doesn’t go anywhere. Rap can only become rap. That being said, I like a lot of early rap and hip hop (Run DMC, LL Cool J) but it hasn’t gotten much better than that.
I mean, you have the blues and soul music, Elvis rips it off and makes it into rock and roll… so on and so forth. All that happens with rap is you end up with white boy a-holes like Asher Ross singing about college? Have any of you people ever seen this guy Asher Ross? Give me a f***ing break.
Kings of Leon suck too. How do you grow up listening to classic rock in Tennessee and end up making gay ass new wave music?
I’m just laying down the law tonight folks. I keep it real.
I do like Brian McCann though.
August 21st, 200912:45 am
Roman Gal: Let’s face it, ain’t that the truth.
And let’s face it: No More Bobby is trying awfully hard.
August 21st, 200912:46 am
DOB, I’d love to take a trip out west on the bike, some beautiful country out there for sure. I love the Blue Ridge Parkway, it is practically in my back yard. It’s therapuedic to take a few hour ride up ther, especially in the early morning.
I’ve had a few friends tell me how crazy Dills Gap is, but they tend to exaggerate a tad so I thought I ask you. Guess I’ll have to strap on the leathers & give it a try. I’ve heard there is a tree at the start of the road that is covered with bodywork from the bikes of riders who failed to stay upright. Hopefully I return with all of my bodywork & body for that matter.
NO MORE BOBBY, don’t ever do that again. Can’t believe I sat through that whole video, but I did. 1983 or not, that shouldn’t be legal for a grown man to do that in public.
August 21st, 200912:47 am
there are a lot of people on this blog with self esteem problems.
if you are between the ages of 12 an 21 i give you a pass.
anyone else, buy a dog.
they are uncondtional.
August 21st, 200912:48 am
Mitchell: Uh, way to keep it real (rolls eyes. shakes head. reaches for laptop power switch….)
August 21st, 200912:49 am
So BRAVES’ record against the MELTS is now 7-5 I believe, and 8-4 against the FILTHIES.
NO MORE BOBBY
Do you even listen to anything besides 70s stoner music DOB?
Gangsta Rap is Non-existant… and hasn’t existed since the mid 90’s
Pop Tart, Hip Pop, Garbage is what teenage girls listen to…At least what has been played mainstream since Enimem turned the genre hip hop into Hip-Pop
August 21st, 200912:51 am
I ♥ DOB
August 21st, 200912:52 am
Let’s face it, DOB, you’re just askin’ for it now. Because let’s face it, we got’s some spiteful peoples here.
I don’t mean gay in a negative way.
I guess when your favorite band is the Beatles everything else is not quite good enough. I admit it, I’m a snob.
I thought I made some good points though. No?
uga-brave, used to have a weiner dog and she’d slide her itchy butt across the living room rug. Don’t know I’d call that unconditional.
August 21st, 200912:54 am
On that note…Good night.
TnBrian – Why the heck did you sit through the whole video? Ha! I actually was looking something else up and that appeared. I cringed when I saw it was Star search and thought it was funny. Don’t take 50% of what i say seriously (except the fire Bobby stuff).
Half of what I say is meaningless – John Lennon
Goodnight Braves world. And you too DOB. You know you need people like me like Dre needed Easy E. what the? Im talking in my sleep now. Go Braves!
August 21st, 200912:55 am
Come On Bro, you can’t Forget Old Queen Latifah, Will Smith, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Too Short, House of Pain, Naughty By Nature, Nas, Bone Thugs N harmony, Wycleff Jean, Camp Lo, the list goes on…
Most of these cats don’t get the recognition because they came out in the early days of rap when “All Rap was consider “Gangster” by Corporate America (Other than the Corporate Owners who Banked off many of these artists)
Damn, I miss the Days Of Old “Yo MTV Raps” People My age Don’t Know Nothing Bout that….
Wayne in Utah
Dave your 12:32 is spot on. What a lot of us have been saying for weeks now.
What gives me hope is some of the teams (not counting the Red Sox) who have won the Series because they got hot at the right time. Cardinals, White Sox, Phillies….did I miss one?
With our rotation, if our bats got hot between now and the end of the season, we could see similar results. Like the kid said in “Angels in the Outfield”…..”It could happen!”
August 21st, 200912:59 am
How else was she gonna scratch it?
BTW, our pug does the same thing. He also gets down on his belly and does what we call the GI Joe crawl to scratch his belly. That one is priceless when he scoots across the entire living room.
He also snores louder than me! (doing so right now)
August 21st, 20091:00 am
then again you said you worked in a moon pie factory, preceded by a portalet job.
buy a smarter dog.
I never had an ear for any rap music, but what I miss is “Beavis and Butt-head”
You’re right in that Ganster Rap is long gone. I can’t recall the station on XM, but they play all the late 80’s-90’s tracks. There is no comparing today’s garbage to the days of Public Ememy, Ice T, & many others. Totally different sound & there was actually a tad bit of thought put into those tracks.
You just can’t compare today’s hip hop to old school Gangster Rap. Today’s “artists” just don’t compare IMO.
August 21st, 20091:01 am
Or give her a bath sometime!
August 21st, 20091:03 am
I genuinely do like a lot of older ’80s and early ’90s rap. I mean, I never really bought many if any rap or hip hop cd’s but definitely, yo mtv raps was the good old days.
Tomahawkin, you can’t tell me guys like T.I. aren’t gangster rappers. Did you hear about that guy C Murder. I read recently rapper C Murder was sentenced to a life imprisnment for… uh, murder.
I realize that the true gangster rap era was the late ’80s-early ’90s but the term is still relevant.
But it seems like people aren’t allowed to criticize rap or hip hop. That you’re out of touch and not with the times but for what it is, it’s not good.
August 21st, 20091:04 am
Wayne in Utah, LOL my old man would cringe everytime he walked into a room & I was watching Beavis & Butthead. It was an original show, that’s for sure.
August 21st, 20091:07 am
Sounds to me like Larry Wayne Sr. has been hunting “the most dangerous game…”
August 21st, 20091:08 am
I was in my late 30’s when I first discovered them, and I still loved it! I don’t know why they quit?? Maybe there is only so much of that stuff that you can come up with?
August 21st, 20091:09 am
kings of leon,
very good. either you get it or not.
it is like calling bands like the church, or the cure, or psych furs.
for me i always liked the replacements, hoodo goroos, jason and the scorchers.
progressive yes, but with a serious edge.
Wayne In UT
I miss the old MTV back in the days where if you were a kid on the neighboorhood block and your parents had cable. Then you were ballin…Even MTV2 is going to the Toilet now they have fell off hard!
I was watching Beavis and Butthead earlier on Youtube. A lot of thir episodes and video commentary have been uploaded onto that site w/o the youtube Nazi’s banning it…
August 21st, 20091:12 am
T.I. is and exception but he is dumb as hell to get busted for what he did amidst all the fame he has
C-murder…lol, Man! I miss the old TRU crew…Master P, Silk, Mystikal, Mix, etc…C-Murder was dumb as hell for what he did as well, ditto for Mystikal
I still bump the hell out of those “TRU to the Game CD’s” That came out in 1996-97
Wayne in Utah, I really can’t recall why they quit doing it. I remember people rasing hell about it, but it wasn’t long after Beavis & Butthead ended South Park began. I never could get into that one.
August 21st, 20091:13 am
I guess I ran DOB off with my anti-Kings of Leon comments.
That music is such derivative BS. You might as well just get two iPods and sync up Wilco and New Order to play at one time. Even the noise of two iPods playing at the same time is better than Kings of Leon.
But no, I guess I just don’t appreciate Kings of Leon for the ground-breaking, skinny jean wearing, greasy haired, whiney voice, new wave, alt country music they have given the world.
What do I know.
August 21st, 20091:15 am
going to mexico for a week, anyone ever been strike fishing off
the yucatan pennisula?
i dont know crap about fishing other then you need bait.
so it is a dudes trip and i am going fishing.
i have been deep sea fishing plenty.
but i am told we are going strike fishing.
August 21st, 20091:16 am
I can’t believe how much crap shows like “Family Guy” get away with…That show makes Beavis and Butthead look like saints…
I used to hate Naive Corporate/Mainstream America Crying about how offensive Shows Like Beavis and Butthead, Married with Childern, And
Jerry Springer were…
Now all these crap shows that come out today get a free pass as long as it isn’t Janet Jackson being on stage (sarcasm)
all those bands you mentioned are better than kings of leon.
they are real, they were unique, they don’t get their songs played at a baseball game when a player comes up to hit.
August 21st, 20091:18 am
Co-Sign, I hated Southpark…That show was nothing but a bunch of little kids cussing at school, No substance at all…I’d rather watch Ren and Stimpy
But when Southpark was “Hot on the streets” I began to get into my old WWF Attitude era “Rasslin” stage…
August 21st, 20091:20 am
Wanna Talk about some whiny music look none other than to Gay-Kon And T-Pain…
Talk about absolut whining Pop-Tart Garbage!
August 21st, 20091:21 am
a fray fan right? or maybe dougthery?
at least live, and better then erzra had serious moments.
August 21st, 20091:25 am
I can’t stand any cartoon sit com that’s on the air today. The Simpsons, although I don’t care for it, has stayed remotely clean over the years. The “Family Guy” is anything but family oriented IMO.
I loved Married with Children, always funny as hell. It had to be the most low budget hit sitcom ever, well at least in the early years. That show really put Fox on the map. Most of the major networks just put together good TV anymore.
I find myself drawn to shows like Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Sons of Anarchy, The Sopranos, Rescue Me & others. All have interesting story lines & pull you in as a viewer.
August 21st, 20091:29 am
Ah late night typos, lol. That should have read: Most of the major networks just can’t put together good shows anymore.
August 21st, 20091:30 am
I realize that it also comes off as mildly, uncomfortably polliticall incorrect or possibly even racist to be a white person criticizing rap and hip hop. I’m not trying to be that guy. I’m not that guy.
All the people who hate standards of pollitical correctness or who are offended at being called culturally insensitive usually are, uh, racist or culturally insensitive.
Not that it’s even really my place to say it but I just don’t think the majority of rap these days contributes anything positive to society or the black community. Why am I even talking about this?
I don’t know but somebody has to agree with that. There’s so much bad music out there these days it kind of bothers me.
At least coming of age in the early ’90s you had music that you could really invest in and made you think, both rock and hip hop. It wasn’t interchangeable and disposable like it is now. There was actual diversity.
August 21st, 20091:31 am
then again if i were a closer, loved smoltz’ thunderstruck, trevor’s hells bells, and of course enter sandman.
for me it would be paint it black. love that song and it is appropiate.
August 21st, 20091:34 am
You know what, uga-brave? I actually like the Fray.
They should be so lucky, huh? They’re not exactly hip but they have really great melodies and have a great sound as a band. Good lyics, a little cheesy at times but whatever.
The fact that they’re not hip makes me like them even more. I respect what they do, they’re genuine.
August 21st, 20091:40 am
with you on married wih children. definetly with YOU ON BREAKING BAD.
great show. HBO has done a great job lately.
generational kill was awesome, plus it was somewhat embedded.
true blood is the best thing since band of brothers.
“I realize that it also comes off as mildly, uncomfortably polliticall incorrect or possibly even racist to be a white person criticizing rap and hip hop. I’m not trying to be that guy. I’m not that guy.”
Dude, I could care less as long that were are in agreement that today’s music sucks…
I just wonder what music will be like 10 years from now…I bet it will all by computer synchronized like half of the stuff is today…
August 21st, 20091:43 am
Here is the links to the pictures I took tonight at Danville.
uga-brave, upon closer inspection of your musical preferences, I think the Fray is about where it ends.
I can’t get with you on live or better than ezra. I did have kind of a Live period in high school but I’ve moved on. Sorry.
I definitely have to admit to being somewhat of a snob but I really just like having conversations about this stuff but people take it too seriously and think you’re criticizing them if you don’t like their music. Okay, maybe that’s understandable but I just like mixing it up a little.
I’m having fun here.
Steve Holt!!! (fists in the air)
August 21st, 20091:48 am
Hey UGA, while you are in Yucatan, dont forget to try Cochinita Pibil
August 21st, 20092:03 am
I still remember thinking around the time of n’sync and backstreet boys and britney spears, “this stuff will never last.”
I really thought it would just go away on it’s own as had been the case in the past but there was never anything to stop it or take over.
It just started this thing where it became kind of instant gratification, it served a need to see performers who didn’t challenge their audience, gave them exactly what they wanted to hear.
The idea of talent and individuality and skill became irrelevant. It was all about having a certain attitude or strong personality, a desire to want to be successful without actually paying your dues.
Meanwhile, in the real world you have wars and terrorism and elections and government invasion of privacy and a public that is completely detached from reality and who are swayed by one dimensional phrases like “flip-flopper” and “death panels” and who have no ability to contribute to a serious debate about important issues.
And then you have Bobby Cox mishandling the bullpen. The whole world is going to hell.
I’m not suggesting that Kings of Leon should be considered in the same breath as American Idol. The Kings of Leon just suck.
But the rest of it, American Idol in particular, is just an example of our spoon fed culture. A lot of people don’t seem to want to think about anything.
August 21st, 20092:04 am
i dont know, the only thing i know we are staying at the moon palace.
two golf courses on the property. golf and fishing which i dont really dont not now aything about.
just hope my friends dont wrap me with chains around the ankles.
that sopranos thing.
August 21st, 20092:05 am
And that’s all I have to say.
August 21st, 20092:07 am
Have fun uga-brave.
August 21st, 20092:15 am
you need help.
in 1985, we booked inxs. before smabooh. remember their big hit “dont change”
well they blew up.
we also had love tractor, pylon, jason, and a huge jam band that beacame popular.
August 21st, 20092:17 am
The Prestige…. I’ve seen it before, and yet, I still like it…. Good movie, and, can’t argue with a movie that has Scarlett Johansson in it. Mmmmm.
August 21st, 20092:24 am
govt mule, and widespread before they became widespread.
320 south lumpkin street. great basement. we saw it all.
lava love remember that band?
August 21st, 20092:37 am
Nice pics Cameron. Thanks for posting those.
Although a few on here are going to go nuts with all of those Spanjer-Furstenburg sightings!

Mitchell …. You’re “and” idiot…
Bay Area Steve
August 21st, 20093:27 am
‘Tis awfully good to see you posting more frequently again. I saw you trying to post reason, in-game; please don’t waste your effort. Save it for the late shift and the day-time, so I’ll be sure not to miss. And yes, Mitchell has descended into “and idiot.”
I’m tellin’ you folks, his early Katy Temple was good, in the “Fire/Rehire DOB” vein. But, I think he’s worse than MFin09, now.
August 21st, 20093:40 am
Nova Scotia Steve,
can’t believe you’re the dude who jacked RHR’s bit. At least you finally admitted it, but that’s pretty weak, ain’t it? Dane Cook? Dennis Leary?
August 21st, 20095:00 am
Be careful using computer during thunderstorm if it’s storming in your area. Lightning can even be dangerous right before and right after storm
August 21st, 20095:05 am
Mitchell: if you are looking for better music, check out these bands: Radiohead, Arcade Fire, The National, Sigur Ros.
August 21st, 20096:05 am
“Shafer wrist was hurt pretty bad thats why his arm wasnt so hot, but with out a doubt he is one of the best younger players we have..my predicitons is that next year our outfield will look something like this…LF-McLouth CF- Shafer RF- Diaz/Church platoon”–Escobar for Supreme
NO way. Schafer is not going to be the starting CF by any stretch of the imagination. 1) He didn’t perform well in 2009. 2) He is coming off an injury and hasn’t played much the second half of this year. So why would Bobby put him in CF??? If he does make the team he would probably be a fourth outfielder. If he does very well during the course of the season it may open up a spot for a trade.
I think it’s likely that FW is going to either trade or sign a new LF with some power. Clearly, G Anderson is neither a long term solution nor does he help this team much in the middle of the order. So it is obvious what this team needs. He addressed the biggest need over the past winter with pitching and so I think he will try to address the other biggest need now: power.
We know that we have too many starting pitchers and too many making too much money (like that? LOL). So one of the highest paid is likely to be traded or not signed. Hard to say what is going to happen there. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see. Too many teams need pitching so I think a good deal can be made. But then there aren’t many teams with great power so I don’t know… We can probably get a Adam LaRoche like player but I don’t know about a big time HR hitter.
Really, I think this team only needs one power guy then try to work on some speed. Get a new power hitting LF, sign Adam LaRoche, maybe even make a trade for a new second baseman with speed, and hope that Heyward is ready next year for RF. Prado is a great player but we need to get some speed somewhere in this line up. I would think that if the opportunity came up FW wouldn’t hesitate to move Johnson and/or Prado. But who knows?
August 21st, 20096:07 am
METSFAN4LIFE: ” got two words for you: Gary Sheffield. Mr. 500 homeruns will love to see Kawakazi. He’s hitting .401 with an ops of 1.016 against him.” Too bad he removed himself from the line-up before the game because Minaya wouldn’t talk to him about a contract extension…
August 21st, 20096:18 am
I hated Southpark…That show was nothing but a bunch of little kids cussing at school, No substance at all… Tomahawkin
South Park is excellent satire comedy that takes on a new, relevant issue with each new episode. Maybe you only watched episodes from the first couple of seasons, but trust me, it’s grown up a lot since then. As far as substance goes, it has far more than any other animated comedy on TV.
Give it another chance… Pretty soon you’ll be saying “I learned something today…”
August 21st, 20096:59 am
Hey i hear u son Mike(ow Ihurt) hampton Out again I tolf DOB u clown who went to houston would be the same jerk who gets hurt if someone yelled Money!…..Oh and marlins will sweep us again here at the Ted home of B.Cox Double-A Team of chipper(we found a dead body)Jones…who never should won MVP of the Natl league..since then he cost us wild card game in 2000. cost a Game in The Ted in 2000 in Gamw 162…shall i refresh u DOB Two outs all Jones has to do is field he must saw some one flash a 1000 bill in his face n threw the ball over wolhers n to the outfield…Bye bye and since then chipper jones n friends have choke in great form!
August 21st, 20097:07 am
Schaefer no way him n KJ are the worst fielders ever….trade those for people oh wait if Bobby cox in charge he get the pillsbury doughboy to play CF….Oh well Braves in 2014!….someday we will wake up sayin dammit we should hired jimmy leyland after Bobby(wife beater) lost to Yankees in 1996. if leyland been here it been braves not marlins won WS after beatin them in Nat champ Game see Bobby been coachin fla then see!But no we kept momma boys cox of wife beater here so could see him choke get rid of players who out did him he was mad at brett boone cause he was loose cannon who out played chippy.and lofton was doin fine but cox hated his Music must been playin clips of him losin to Twins n blue jays to much…lol…and we let players who should be here not cox in mananger shoes
August 21st, 20097:08 am
Bay Area Steve,
You shoulda called a cab for him.
August 21st, 20097:26 am
A perfect week-end would be
Braves sweep Marlins
Giants take 2/3 from the Rockies
And for good measure, Mets sweep Phillies and Dodgers sweep Cubs.
August 21st, 20097:40 am
Question of the Day:
A little game of would you rather. Would you rather have a healthy, somewhat ineffective Chipper or a sporadically injured, raking Chipper?
I know, I know. His #’s after the break aren’t bad. But it seems like he’s been nowhere near some of the torrid streaks he had last year and it also seems like he hit the DL or missed days here and there last year a little more often.
Could just be me. And there is the fact that dude’s getting older and he won the fricking batting championship last season, which is indicative of an absurdly good (and rare) year. But still, I’m curious. Is he better when he plays intermittently somehow?
August 21st, 20097:47 am
Kevin, meet Mitchell. Mitchell, Kevin.
(OK, that’s a little harsh. But Mitchell, my man, I don’t know what beverages you were drinking last night, but you were getting a bit over the top by midnight…. As for Kevin, I honestly read your 6:59 post twice and still don’t really know what it was about.)
August 21st, 20098:03 am
CharlieAlphaBravo: My jaw dropped when I saw that South Park review from Tomahawkin. That’s some of the most clever, hilarious writing you’ll find anywhere, in every episode of South Park.
August 21st, 20098:06 am
DOB, you read Kevin’s post twice? What are you punishing yourself? I understood a few words like Marlins and Braves.
August 21st, 20098:15 am
Well its a fine day (except for the weather DOB its 40% rain w/TS,humid) here in the big ATL to get a fish fry going, maybe a Friday nite all you can eat.
August 21st, 20098:24 am
Thanks for the response on the Gonzo thing. I know how busy you get trying to get to the clubhouse for quotes then get your story filed.
Gonzo juts seamed upset about coming out. Hopefully he was mad at his performance and the walk.
in 1985, we booked inxs. before smabooh. remember their big hit “dont change” uga-brave
I’m gonna assume you meant Shabooh Shoobah? That was their first big album, came out in 1982. I only remember because I saw them freshman year of college right after it came out, before they broke big. Believe it or not, they were the opening act for Adam and the Ants on that tour. Adam Ant was really big at the time, the year after “Stand and Deliver” was all the rage. I just remember Adam Ant had two drummers pounding away throughout.
I also remember having strep throat and an incredible accompanying earache at that show in Kansas City. You ever had strep with the earache that feels like a knife in your ear? Oh, it was nice. But we had a blast anyway.
Anyway, Shabooh Shoobah was a really strong album, and to me, INXS never made another one as good. They had a few great songs after that, but I thought they became so bland and commercial sounding after that. I lost interest in them within a few years.
But “Don’t Change” sounds as great as ever. I’ve still got that on my Ipod.
August 21st, 20098:27 am
Alright, gotta get on this 9 a.m. flight to ATL. Hopefully we’ll not be 30th in line to take off here at LaGuarda.
August 21st, 20098:30 am
GIL in MECHANICSVILLE:
Have you become….shudder….a lurker? Whad zup man? Hit me back and give me a low-down on your take for the post-season. Are we goin’ to see GWINNETT this year? I’m not going to DANVILLE because they didn’t start MIKE MINOR off there.
August 21st, 20098:32 am
Good luck with that.
August 21st, 20098:38 am
Just picked up tickets to see the Neville Brothers and Dr. John next weekend. Should be a great show (outdoors) and I’ve never seen either, before.
August 21st, 20098:42 am
Wow! Arguing about “substance” of an ANIMATED series. How far we have fallen….
August 21st, 20098:45 am
Lucky win last night. Johan didn’t have his stuff working for him. But i will tip my hat to Kakawami.
August 21st, 20098:50 am
Musta’ been the right place, but…the wrong time… love that song by DR. JOHN. Dude must be 75 by now.
August 21st, 20098:51 am
No lucky win. Kawakami to his credit out-pitched Santana. The Braves got all the run support they needed.
Take it one game, one series at a time. Time to beat the Fishies.
August 21st, 20098:54 am
Dude, you’re goin’ all ANDERS-esque on us. Where’s the unrepentant soul, the do-or-die line in the sand. Enemies to the death. All that BS? Just askin’.
LaGuardia – my least fav airport. I’m always on a plane that’s like 15th in line to take-off.
August 21st, 20098:56 am
TG KENSHIN saved one of his stellar performances for last night’s game though. I’m with MELTSFAN4LIFE.
August 21st, 20098:59 am
We can not take KK out of the rotation now. I am a huge fan of Hudson, but right now he should join the bullpen, help us out the rest of the year, and then be ready to start (fully healthy) next year.
KK is the man!
August 21st, 20099:00 am
South Park is hilarious and very well written. Smart comedy. Some people get it, some people….
Thought this from the gwinnett daily was share worthy –
The rain is supposed to finally move out of today and in comes 80’s and low humidity for the weekend. Great weather to catch a game…
August 21st, 20099:04 am
RichBrave-Yeah, Dr. John’s been around for a decade or three or four. Strange I never saw him before, cause he was living in Macon while I was at Mercer in the 70’s. I saw all the other seminal Southern Rockers (Allmans, Wet Willie, etc.), but somewhow mised “The Night Tripper” from New Orleans. I’ll remedy that next weekend.

Some of the dumbest, most inarticulate, posters, are also the funniest. Not naming any names, but just read a couple posts on this page that left me sobbing with laughter…

RHR, thanks for the link,good read, but just reminded me of all the division that was on here over that issue, when to bring Tommy Gun up.
Glad its a moot point now, real glad.

Surely, Hudson will join the bullpen when he returns. I mean… they’re not going to put Lowe in the bullpen, and he’s been the least consistent of our starters this year. If Hudson joins the rotation, Kawakami will be the odd man out.
And while I’m anxious to have Hudson back in our rotation next year… RIGHT NOW, at this point, he’s a guy FRESH off his TJ surgery rehab… Can we really expect him to INSTANTLY match what Kawakami’s been giving us, let alone TOP it?????
If Hudson is on track, he’s a ground-ball pitcher, which is ALWAYS valuable in the ‘pen! And he could be guy that could take on late-inning responsibility, and take some pressure off Soriano, Gonzo, and Moylan.
Hudson to the bullpen… just makes more sense than bumping anyone out of the rotation right now. Over the winter, the Braves will have a valuable trade asset in the rotation that can be moved to make room for Huddy, while getting something of significant value in return. But for now… there’s no place in this rotation for Hudson, and he’s needed in the bullpen.

KC, is it a good movie or just cool effects (like Transformers)?

Y’all can give Mitchell all the crap you want to about his Kings of Leon and Rap rants, but dude was spot on with this paragraph:
“Every country song these days on the radio is like a three minute little blue collar fantasy about living in the “real America”, drivin’ a f***in’ pick-up truck, punchin’ a clock man… sung by a bunch of f***ing cowboy hat wearing millionaires.
Mitchell, you nailed it, my man. I can’t help you or hurt you regarding Kings of Leon, because I’ve never listened to one song of theirs, but I’m right there with you on this garbage.
Kenny Chesney would $##t himself if he had to live one day in David Allan Coe’s shoes in the 70s.

Ok, guys. We’ve won two games in a row. If we win tonight, its called a winning streak. IT HAS HAPPENED BEFORE.

Man, that Jake Taylor sure is a wise cat.
I’ll find out soon, Soph. He’s supposed to be at the hospital between 8-9. I’m guessing they’ll do dialysis but I don’t know. There has been talk of doing a transplant but he has CHF and is in terrible health so I’m not sure if that’s what his doctors have told him or that’s just what he thinks. Thanks for asking.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
