Contemplation Part II:
DOB, just sitting around contemplating salaries and wishing mine was more than it is and started wondering how JACK BAUER gets paid. What is his source of income? Pension? Retirement? Just curious.
Man…wouldn’t it be great to get PAID to be KIM BAUER’S “Daddy”?!
Iron Labrum, Bowman’s technique in actuality bears no manifestation upon my gratification of said journalist’s body of work, for some reason.

Since we hear so much talk of just moving Chipper over to first because he’s old and people think he might get injured less there, here’s an interesting excerpt from an article about Casey Kotchman:
As Kotchman was learning to play first base, he noticed something that appealed to him: It’s quite busy over there. Third base might be the hot corner, but two or three innings can go by without any action. Not so at first. “There’s a lot to it,” he said. “You can’t take a pitch off. Even if you don’t get a ground ball hit to you, you’ve got to cover first base and deal with the throw. You’ve got to try to catch the ball, make a tag, avoid a collision and all that other stuff. The other infield spots, if the ball is not hit at you, you really don’t have anything to do except maybe back people up. “You always have some kind of responsibility as a first baseman, because other than the pitcher and the catcher, you’re getting the ball the most.”
For all the dependability required of a first baseman, many fans – and even some players – regard the position as a sort of rest stop for aging infielders. (George Brett once joked that a third baseman who gets old moves to first, and when he’s too old for that, he becomes a DH. But once the Hall of Fame third baseman found himself playing first, he changed his tune: “Whoever says this is an easy position doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” Brett told author David Faulkner. “Just getting your hands and feet to work right is tough enough.”)

JJ allowed two earned runs or less in 26 of his 34 starts last year. Most underrated picher in BB. If he had pitched for the Yanks or Red Sox, he would be talked about everyday on MLB media outlets as the next Cy Young. Look at Joba, whose done little.
February 1st, 20109:09 pm
Damon says he would like to be part of the Tiger’s outfield now. I think he would like to be part of anyone’s outfield that Borass will let him sign with.

P.W. Hjort, it just goes to show that adding strippers and a ton of F-bombs to a script all of the sudden makes it the “comedy of the year”.
Instead of two drunk morons looking for their car after a night of blacking out, while trying to keep it from their wives/girlfriends, it was four drunk morons set in Vegas.
I dunno. Maybe I’m being pissy about it since I was expecting more. That’s the problem with positive reviews and people raving about a movie. In the end it doesn’t mean you’re destined to like it.
But Heather Graham looked nice, as she always does.

nolie, glad to hear others agree. I knew some on the blog loved it and others didnt’. It’s hard to get a pulse of “friends” you don’t really know, giving you advice/opinions on movies. I’ve got certain friends that love the same kind of movies (especially comedies) that I do, and they ALL said I was going to love it. Guys I trust, that know my humor. So that’s why I’m bummed out. I was expecting an instant classic.
Like I said earlier today, it may grow on me. Some comedies you almost have to see a few times to catch all the one liners and references. But to compare it to 40 Year Old Virgin is an insult to 40-YOV from my angle. Which is just simply one of the greatest lovable loser characters in any comedy in recent memory. So many good scenes.
I didn’t find any of the Mike Tyson stuff to be funny. ANY of it. The only thing seperating it from every other Vegas “romp” movie was the abscence of a dead body in the trunk. Oh wait. The body was on a living guy. A psycho naked Asian guy. My goodness, how did I not laugh harder at that scene, huh?
Maybe the people putting together the top 100 lists for Rolling Stone have now decided to do movie reviews?

Golden Glove. I feel your pain. I was a few feet away from the table, when the players left…
I certainly appreciate all the quotations you were able to score today. I don’t know how big of a sandwich eater you are, but there’s a place half a block from decatur CD called Sawicki’s. Fantastic place for a straight up delicious sub. Me, I prefer the Italian there. The stuffed chicken is also amazing. Take care and stay in touch.
February 1st, 20109:30 pm
Iron Labrum, I totally agree with you regarding Bowman’s style. Overly passive voice and weird sentence structure make it impossible to read his articles with any kind of normal rhythm. It seems like he has it in his head that typical syntax or word choice are amateurish, when in actuality his straining to seem more polished comes off as silly and sophomoric.
Just from a random recent article: “Schafer was just 22, and at the ripe age of 25, Francoeur still possessed the belief that he could regain the successful form that he displayed during the early portion of his career.”
…still possessed the belief? Notwithstanding the fact that, by definition, you can’t possess a belief, the structure is just odd and kills any flow to his stories. This kind of thing is in every entry of his. It’s frustrating because he can obviously write and has a good command of the language, but goes out of his way with flowery prose and structure to his detriment.

I thought “Youth in Revolt” was a million times funnier than “The Hangover”.
February 1st, 20109:50 pm
Jay-Hey, they just were very underprepared for the crowd (in the middle of probably the heaviest population of Braves fans in the nation, go figure). Very dissapointing. I felt bad for all the younger kids that had been sitting there waiting to see Chipper Jones for the first time.
Chuck James can Potentially be Solid until the 6th again!!!
February 1st, 20109:53 pm
In all fairness, I see where you are coming from. ‘The Hangover’ is completely blown out of proportion. It is funny but not THAT funny. 40-Year-Old-Virgin is flawless though. Comparing it to that is tough. That movie has the best set of characters and supporting characters. Also, the movie has Seth Rogen and Paul Judd before they got inserted into every other comedy. 40-YOV is the definition of classic, especially for the last decade, I agree. LOL Mooj. He gets out of hand when he gets riled up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgM8TGx4XqE&feature=related

February 1st, 201010:05 pm
I went out to the Caravan today. My wonderful wife drove up from Auburn with me and we made sure to get to the Publix early since any event with free Chipper Jones and Tim Hudson autographs is sure to be packed. It was an awesome experience. We waited for a long time in the cold but all the players were nice and made conversation with my wife and I. My wife’s cousin, who she is very close to, played college ball with Hudson and Ross. They talked with her for a bit about that and also asked if she was doing OK from her cancer recovery (my wife’s cousin had told Hudson about her). We were touched that they would ask and pleased with our experience there.
To those that are complaining about not getting anything there: we made frinds with one of the public relations people for the Braves on their Auburn Caravan stop and she said they did not expect that many people to be there. They also had not planned to mail any autographs out but when they realized how many people showed up they knew they had to do something. I think that was awesome of them!
On another note, I asked Chipper if he would be coming back on to our little blog here. He replied,” Haha, Probably not.” Sounds like DOB is gonna have to convince Hoss to come back!

Bobbyflanders, thanks for the rec on the sub shop near Decatur CD. I might have to swing by there this week. Maybe as soon as tomorrow for lunch, as a reward to myself after getting my second crown put on (the one I was fitted for a couple of weeks ago).

The only thing worse than gratuitous or lazy use of emoticons is any discussion whatsoever of said use. (I’ve got your smile….)
The first half of Funny People was great. Second half not so much.

Me, too, Shanks a lot. Got the temporary in now. But my dentist is the queen of restorative dentistry. Seriously, she’s outstanding. And, as I’ve noted previously, easy on the eyes….

Being easy on the eyes is always a plus. I try to schedule my dental appointments so I don’t have to be productive after them. Something about half my face being numb just makes me not want to do anything.
February 1st, 201010:38 pm
Is there an epidemic of crowns in the AJC sports department?
Schultz, DOB and Bradley thinks there’s one on his head as the king of college basketball. (He knows what he’s talking about for the most part, but don’t let him know that. It’ll go to his head).

brian, I seriously doubt she reads the blog….
Stinger, that was funny. By the way, Schultz told me to stick to baseball when I texted him Sunday to question the order of his all-time QB list. Specifically the positioning of Brady above several others on the list.

Probably a good sign that the season needs to start… bloggerites need something to yack about.

with that forgetful nature of yours, maybe you’d like Nolan’s Memento more
Seriously, WHY is damon still not signed? Abreu wasn’t signed for a while either, but damon is coming off a better year than abreu was in ‘08 and has arguably been a better player for the last few years.I can’t imagine damon is asking for more than 5/6 mil, so I’m just a little surprised.

Loved Mila Kunis in Forgetting Sarah Marshall….so, gonna watch Extract.
February 2nd, 201012:14 am
…of course, I love Mila Kunis anyway…quickly climbing the charts for my fav. anyway.
Something for all the Loaf-heads on here to consider:
Our favorite somnambulent LF may be unemployed when P’s and C’s report in a few weeks. Took a look at AL rosters today and I can’t discern a single team that would have serious interest in him.
The only ones that might consider him as a 4th/5th OF and occasional DH would seem to be the Yankees, Rays, Jays & Tigers, who are supposedly Damon’s first choice and his most likely landing place.
There are still a few bats available (Delgado, Dye, Blalock, Jacobs) and some decent 2B (Hudson, Lopez, Kennedy), but not much else. And when the best available relief arm left is Kevin Gregg, teams with holes in the ‘pen are SOL.
Not expecting much (if any) movement by the locals, even though the current roster consists of exactly 11 MLB caliber position players (8 starters plus Ross, Infante & Hinske). If Heyward & Schafer both begin the season at Gwinnett, exactly who will fill the last 2 spots on the bench?
Conrad? Thurston? D. Hernandez? The Jones guy with the inflated minor league numbers? Blanco? (please, no). Can we play with 11 players and 14 pitchers?
Betting there will be a minor deal or 2 just before the season starts. If I’m Jo Jo Reyes, I’m not renting an apartment on anything more than a weekly basis.
February 2nd, 201012:18 am

He was unemployed longer than that last spring. Braves signed him after spring training was already underway.

Nolie, which version of Insomnia are you referring to? Because while the 2002 U.S. remake with Pacino and Robin Williams is really good, the 1997 original from Norway, starring that Skarsgard dude, is even better. Seriously, the ‘97 version is terrific.
February 2nd, 201012:32 am
Personally I’m suprised that Dye and Damon are still on the market. But I guess that has a lot to do with the fact they refuse to take smaller contracts.
February 2nd, 201012:33 am
Keep in mind, last year Bobby Abreu signed on Feb. 11, and Garret Anderson signed on Feb. 24.
February 2nd, 201012:37 am
If I were Hudson, I’m not sure I would do an interview with y’all until the AJC promised to never run that picture again…
February 2nd, 201012:43 am
I knew Abreu and Anderson were late signings. Did not remember how late. Obviously, there will be movement on some people this month. While the airline industry tends to raise prices the closer to take off a ticket is purchased, what is the trend in baseball? I assume that there is a downward trajectory on wages as fewer positions become available. However, I can also see, as fewer bats are available and teams are feeling pressure as spring training opens and there are gaps, there could be upward pressure on wages. I have not paid enough attention. What tends to happen with wages as we approach spring training?
February 2nd, 201012:44 am
“Randall Delgado is going to kill it this year in Myrtle Beach”
+1, I really think he’s going to separate himself as one of the elite pitching prospects in the minors this season. Keep in mind that at the same age(19) last season Delgado(Rome) was ahead of where Feliz(Danville) was when he was with the Braves.
February 2nd, 201012:49 am
Besides the outfield what are the other roster spots open for competion going into ST?
February 2nd, 201012:56 am
Garret “Loaf” Anderson wasn’t THAT bad people. Yes, he’d get under a fans skin with his demenour, but the guy came up with his share of hits, clutch hits, and when he finally got to the ball he had a pretty good arm. Remember Kotchman told, “warned”, people about his OF adventures but also said just what I said about his arm right when they signed him. We’ve had worse, much worse. Just that with the internet people have way more freedom to go off and over exaggerate things … like a snowball effect.
February 2nd, 201012:59 am
They played a few Heart songs while I was driving today and gotta say, they ain’t too bad. It took me back, like, when I was a little kid hearing those songs. Yeah, 28 year old guys can like Heart too.
February 2nd, 20101:12 am
When you follow the games primarily on gamecast, one is less aware of bad defense. Offense is much more apparent. Loaf seemed decent on gamecast. If one moves away from Atlanta and avoids special MLB cable packages, then defense does not seem like such a big deal.
February 2nd, 20101:16 am
Moe Berg, all I’m sayin is GA didn’t cost us a shot at the playoffs, Chipper did and I bet he knows it. My appologies to Chipper.

Iron Labrum & Matty Ross,
I’ve been saying the same thing about Bowman for years. I used to read his every article everyday until 3 years ago, and frankly couldn’t handle it anymore. His style agitated me so much I had to stop reading. Iron Labrum, you forgot his overuse of the phrase “due to the fact that…” But, you and Matty Ross nailed it on the head about his syntax, sentence structure, etc…
Dude seems like a good guy, but damn is he frustrating to read and comprehend. There’s no flow to anything he says.
The links to this blog that the MLB site used to post got me acclimated here. Never would’ve found the AJC or DOB otherwise. It was a breathe of fresh air. DOB blows Bowman out of the water in how he writes. Bowman needs to get back to the basics and simple sentences. I actually started to hate the guy and wonder how MLB could employ him. But after years of fasting from his work, I’ve come to appreciate him for what he does. I still can’t stand to read his stuff however.
February 2nd, 20102:29 am
Thanks for reminding me of Memento. Still haven’t seen it but I’ve been wanting to since it came out in 2000. For some reason it always slips my mind. I created a list of movies I’ve been wanting to see for when I subscribe to Netflix next month, so thanks!
February 2nd, 20102:36 am
So, Tommy Hanson went to the Grammys, huh? I kinda like that. He went to the Saints/Vikes game last week as well if I’m not mistaken. I’m starting to think this Tommy fella wants to enjoy life, and wants to take advantage of the things that come along with being a big league pitcher, especially one on the rise. Not gonna settle for high school sweethearts, division titles, having his jersey retired back at the old high school, and having his In My Own Words run on an endless loop on a regional network. Nah, this kid might be dreaming bigger. This kid might be dreaming of banging starlets, winning the World Series and Cy Youngs, and being mentioned everyday on ESPN. Maybe this kid ain’t thinking local, not content on being the BMOC. Maybe he intends to take this sucker worldwide
I hope this means we don’t lose him to the Yankees in free agency
February 2nd, 20106:55 am
Roster spots open? There are openings?
February 2nd, 20107:32 am
Heath–haven’t heard of it, but I’ll try to get there if I get the chance…
February 2nd, 20107:45 am
This is from ESPN Insider’s Rumor Central post entitled “Yorvit to Mets Off?”
The Mets’ pursuit of Bengie Molina ended in vain last month when the free agent catcher opted instead for a one-year deal to stay in San Francisco. General manager Omar Minaya then said the Mets might consider an offer to free agent Yorvit Torrealba, but that pursuit could be an awkward one since Torrealba filed a grievance against the Mets after they backed out of a three-year deal with him two years ago.
ESPN The Magazine’s Buster Olney tweeted Monday that “Yorvit Torrealba has a one-year offer from the Padres in hand, and would like to engage the Mets, but to this point the Mets have indicated they don’t have any money available to make something happen.”
If the Mets are truly out of cash, then Fernando Tatis and Daniel Murphy will likely share first base duties as previously speculated, and the catching situation appears to be down to a battle between Chris Coste, Josh Thole and Omir Santos, with Thole having the inside track on a roster spot because he bats left-handed.
No more money also means the starting rotation will remain status quo.
And then there’s a little gray box inside that post that says…
Is this a playoff rotation?
* Johan Santana — 2009 FIP*: 3.79 in 25 starts
* John Maine — 2009 FIP: 4.43 in 15 starts
* Mike Pelfrey — 2009 FIP: 4.39 in 31 starts
* Jon Niese — 2009 FIP: 4.21 FIP in five career starts
* Oliver Perez — 2009 FIP: 6.40 in 14 starts
*FIP: Fielding Independent Pitching, formulated to determine how well a pitcher performed when removing all things of which he is not in control.

I know I am late getting to it but Braveheart’s 7:14 pm breakdown of Tommy Hanson was awesome and I hope right in line. Look what all that freedom did for Mr. Jeter.
One of the funniest stories I think was on the dan patrick show several years ago when he was still on the mothership. He had one of Jeter’s team mates on and Rex Dibble asked him about Jeter’s reputation as a lady killer. The guy (cant remember who it was) said that year the Miss Universe was coming to the locker room after a game and everyone was scampering around quickly to get ready, even the married guys, except Jeter. When asked why he wasnt trying to get it together, Jeter replied, ‘Never again will I get involved with a Miss Universe’.
February 2nd, 20109:10 am
On one of the older blogs, we had a discussion about peachtree games on DirectTV. I finally got clear confirmation from a knowledgeable manager at DirectTV (surprisingly, they have a few of those) that all of the Braves peachtree games will be broadcast on one of the regional sports alternate channels for anyone in the Braves home market, which includes most of the southeast (GA, AL, TN, SC, NC…possibly more). In my case, I live in upstate SC and I’ll get them through channel 651 (BRVS). If you’re interested in getting DirectTV and call their customer support to ask about those games, they won’t know what you’re talking about. I went through about 3 tiers of management and got about 7 different answers during my inquiries. These channels don’t show up on any channel listing and won’t until you actually get DirectTV up and running, so I was a little hesitant to switch from cable and have no guarantee that I wouldn’t lose 45 of my Braves games this year. But despite the utter confusion among the support staff at DirectTV, I made the leap and will get all of the games for half the price of cable.
Funny story, I had Comporium cable and I went by their local office to drop off the DVR and tell them I’d like to cancel. She printed out a sheet and handed it to me. I said, “Is that it?” She said yes. I said, “Aren’t you going to ask why I’m cancelling?” She said no. I said, “Do you guys even care that I’m taking my business elsewhere?” She thanked me for stopping by and wished me well. I’m sure she was a nice lady, but they haven’t dropped a single rate in these slow times and my guess is I’m not the first person to walk in there to drop off my equipment. And I probably won’t be the last. Seriously, I went from $80/month to $40/month without giving up any channels. How could I not do that. That’s at least 2 good bottles of wine or 3 average bottles. And I have 3 kids under 5 years old, I need that extra wine.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
