I could see Medlen geting 12-13 starts from here on out if they limit him to 150 innings this year. Let’s say during his starts they go 8-4 or 9-4, or perhaps better? If we go with KK instead would anyone be willing to bet on the Braves doing that? Perhaps a .500 record at best if KK get’s the starts. 6-6? 5-8?, 7-6? Anyone have faith the BRaves will do as well under KK? I see a 2-3 game swing from Medlen to KK.

Facing Verlander and Strasberg on back-to-back days
That might actually help them tonight. I know I would most definitely not want to face young Mr. Strasburg after facing, say, Jamie Moyer, LOL. That way lies an oh-fer.

I SO hope you’re right…..and will then look forward to all the Braves doubters coming on here tomorrow telling us how lucky we were to face Strasburg on an off night.”
Pat, it won’t matter if Strasburg is on, off, or on stand-by, we’re gonna slap him around like a punk. Wait and see, I can feel it!

The Yankees and Red Sox have a combined 2 players in line to start the All-Star game (both Yankees, Cano and Jeter). Seems like in recent years they have been dominating the vote more than that. It’s a positive thing…looks like the AL will have a very deserving starting lineup.
I just wish Zimmerman could start at 3rd for the NL. At least Wright. I do think Wright will pass Polanco in the last week, if he hasn’t already.

When you talk about Huddy’s split, are you talking about that thing at 82-84, that effectively works as a change? I mean, I know a lot of guys throw their change with a split grip… But, to call what he’s throwing a split… I don’t know; I just remember his split from Oakland, and it was nasty. Hard, hard downward movement. Now, it acts like a change up to me. And, I recall you saying that we’ll know Hudson is back when he’s throwing the split well. And, if what he’s throwing now is what you meant, OK. But, I’ve just been looking for 86 and straight down, and all I see is a change up.

Does anybody know which league won more games this year in interleague play? It seems to me the national league won more games but I’m not sure.

The AL dominated again, 134-118. I think last year it was 138-114.

Mr. Jeans – Are you Ozzy Osbourn, or did you mean a baseball bat?

The last six years, the AL has a .561 win percentage against the NL, which is a 91-win pace. Pretty big difference between two entities that, in theory, should overall be equal. Definitely statistically significant.
But, I’ve just been looking for 86 and straight down, and all I see is a change up.
Good point. I’ve seen him throw some good ones this year, but you’re probably right, not as consistently hard as his Oakland days. Maybe that’s it, as far as his swings-and-misses.
It’s funny, but it seems as if every time he pitches, I have something else to do, LOL. I’ve only watched three of his games this year.

The news about the Mets young pitching prospect Mejia makes you feel like you don’t want to see the Braves be indecisive at all re: Medlen. Determine where his future is on the staff and put him in that role now… IMO.

BAS, while you’re here, you want my impressions of the game I watched Vizcaino pitch? You’re always jumping us when we don’t come back with a game log for the ones we see, LOL.
At least that 118-134 mark by the NL is the best they’ve done against the AL since 2004. That’s kinda sad, actually.

I was thinking there might be a 150 inning ceiling for Medlen, but Hanson increased his innings pitched last year by 66. Who knows.
June 28th, 20103:07 pm
GlenW … Thought your take on the game yesterday was spot on. Don’t remember how many runs scored that wouldn’t if Cabrera strikes out, but that differential changed the character of the game.
Should also mention that Hanson threw some meatballs down the middle that got crushed because Hanson couldn’t count on the corners anymore.
McCann also was getting into it with the ump after the Cabrera AB.
Hanson seems to lose his temper/composure. He needs to get over that.
I remember a game when Hudson got some terrible calls. He was arguing with the imps and clearly very angry. On the next pitch, he tamped it down and got back to business. None of the runners on base scored, and he finished the game without giving up any more runs.
If Hanson can develop this facility, he can become truly outstanding.

Bart Masterson – Hanson was a stretr the year before, whereas Medlen was (mostly) a reliever.

Cops: Man had sex with several horses
ShareThisPrint E-mail By Alexis Stevens
uuuuuummmmmmmmhhhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmm, it appears that dot Don or Anders got himself arrested according to the AJC:
A 37-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly having sex with several horses, police said. Newton County Sheriff’s Office Byron Christopher Jordan (blog name Anders and dot Don) was arrested and charged with bestiality. He is accused of having sex with several horses.
Byron Christopher Jordan (blog name Anders and dot Don) was apparently caught in the act Tuesday morning by the owner of the horses, who called Covington police. Jordan (blog name Anders and dot Don) was charged with bestiality, a felony in Georgia (prior to 1994 it was a graduation requirement at UGA), and with giving an officer a false name.
Lt. Wendell Wagstaff told the Covington News that Jordan (blog name Anders and dot Don) was wearing only dirty pajama bottoms with the fly open and a Mets cap. He also reportedly had a strong odor, according to the report. Jordan(blog name Anders and dot Don), from New York, was transported to the Newton County jail, where he is being held without bond. He was previously arrested on May 7 for DUI, according to jail records.
I hear banjos and the horses are nervous in Covington
