I was thinking about packing up and heading down for the final two grapefruit games… but if Heyward is not gonna be in there I’m staying at home. Catch them next week in the ATL when they mean something.

I’m ready for the real deal and seeing for myself how good this team is… and I think they’re good.

Oh… third!!!

NO MORE BOBBY… we should have a little contest to see who can come up with the best tag line for that photo. They would probably censor mine though.

Too bad we couldn’t have sent Lowe somewhere and kept Javier Vasquez. As a matter of fact I would rather the Braves sent Tim Hudson somewhere and kept Vasquez.

What ever is the scoop with Jordan Schaffer. A couple of years ago one could imagnie a terric outfield of Heyward, Schaffer and Francouer. But less Frenchy and plus McLouth, Melky and Diaz, we could be good for years to come.

Enlighten me and welcome me back to the blog.

Don’t understand the excitement over the Braves this year. Chipper and Glaus are washed up, Wagner and Hudson are waiting on the DL list to come see them. Kawakami’s era will probably be close to his heighth. Saito is ready to retire. Shoulda paid Gonzalez and Soriano their due and kept em. Still no power on the club.

Schafer will start the season at AAA Gwinnett, and he’ll have to demonstrate for once all the hype that surrounds him. I haven’t seen it yet, steroids or otherwise. He’s only 23 so he’s definitely not over the hill.

“j.r. bell Too bad we couldn’t have sent Lowe somewhere and kept Javier Vasquez. As a matter of fact I would rather the Braves sent Tim Hudson somewhere and kept Vasquez.”

Would you rather have had Vasquez for 1 season or Hudson for 3 seasons because that’s the question and nobody wanted Lowe for the price so that wasn’t an option

I choose not to get my sports prognostication from someone who spells height with three h’s. Thanks

timthebrave: How brave are you? Negativity, Negativity, Negativity. Must not really be a brave. Hudson for three years-yeah. Vazquez will begin another downslide this year. Just watch and see. Lowe will pitch well this year.
