ward – congrats on our Giants’ big win today…sort of made up for the pain of the Tribe loss for me… (but not much)…
December 5th, 201011:49 pm
yeah, Ichiro is a good example of a guy I love. doesn’t walk all that much…but still has a good OBP.
I’m so flighty though, once I do get his BA I want to see him walk a bit more too….
I’m going to talk later…..DOB: Will have something later…..Be Cool…..

RYAN FARISH reminds me just a bit of VANGELIS who I came upon because of the song-track from MUTINY on the BOUNTY. Just a bit, but I believe I like this music a little better. Got ‘PACIFIC WIND’ on now.
December 5th, 201011:51 pm
yeah Farish is cool rich. glad you mentioned him B4. thanx
December 5th, 201011:52 pm
Thanks Venice Jim!……..Every one….. Be…Cool……
I appreciate all your suggestions on music rich, I bet Tom does too
December 5th, 201011:53 pm
They miss ADRIAN TRACY more than I thought they would.
December 5th, 201011:54 pm
Ya got me thinkin’(bad move), I think I’ll listen to them again.
December 5th, 201011:55 pm
SOA already over and Walking Dead finishing up tonight
anybody tried Blue Bloods? I think it’s pretty darn good. Course i am an extreme Selleck fan
Brave4life- We almost had it,
Im not making fun of them, but my opinion is hard to fix the mess they have in just a winter. They have huge problems. 2B, C, CF, SP, BP, bench, RF. They have good young players and some superstars, but too many holes also.
December 5th, 201011:58 pm
What 1500 albums are in you collection? Just kiddin’. Really, any ASHFORD and SIMPSON? JOHN HANDY? SPIROGYRA?
Do you know of anyway to get ward off this MILLEDGE kick. I’m getting nauseous.
I would like it if Dero was being shopped. Giants got a clustered team. He plays a lot of positions. I know he doesn’t play SS but that could be filled internally. Just poppin ideas off the top of my head.
December 5th, 201011:59 pm
I appreciate all your suggestions on music rich, I bet Tom does too
Absolutely, nolie, and yours too!
Long week for me, gotta get out of here. Ya’ll have a good night.
Nice to see the Falcons win on the road in TB today (granted, it was ugly).

Got PRAFUL on……….WISHFUL WALK. Give it a spin.
December 6th, 201012:13 am
OK, richbrave. Good timing, the last song I was listening to just ended.
6mil this year for DeRo. I always kinda liked him though. Too bad he kinda fizzled when he had his chance here
December 6th, 201012:28 am
wjones: That 12:12 p.m. comment … priceless.
PRAFUL – ONE DAY DEEP is the album. Some good cuts on it. Got the title song on now.
December 6th, 201012:37 am
PRAFUL is German, uses Indian, European, and what sounds suspiciously like BRAZILIAN bossa nova themes.

Does KK have wording in his contract that prohibits Braves from permanently moving him to bullpen? If not, why not meet with him and inform him that they plan to use him as 3rd or 4th option out of the ‘pen- essentially meaning he’ll be used once or twice a month… maybe that’ll make him change his mind about accepting a “sale” back to his homeland? Sounds like any MLB trade they make the Braves will have likely have to eat 90 percent of his salary- which to me make very little sense to do that unless they get something of value back for him, and that seems unlikely.
December 6th, 20102:59 am
Lollygagger: I have an answer to that.KK had one disaster after another, and when he losed one, the Braves would go on a bad decline…….
December 6th, 20103:08 am
KK was terrible in the bull pen, and was as bad as Jo. Jo. Reyes. Hope I spelled correctly.
December 6th, 20103:43 am
Good night every one! I could be wrong on KK, but he didn’t impress me.Too off,and on……When he was bad, he was bad……”Go!!! Braves!!!.” &…..Peace………

Just saw a bit on Hot Stove on MLB regarding Jayson Werth which should give considerable hope to Jordan Schaefer fans. Werth sustained a broken wrist about seven years ago while with the Dodgers. This after he had already broken out with a good season and a big playoff performance. After the Dodgers non-tendered him, the Phillies got him and we know how good he became, but it took three years for him to recover fully from the wrist.
December 6th, 20106:22 am
Haven’t you heard? Schafer didn’t get hurt. He’s just an HGH flop! Never will amount to anything. Juicer. The wrist thing was just a smoke screen.
Please don’t confuse folks with facts who want to re-write history in a manner that fits their scenario!
December 6th, 20106:44 am
FW will make a bigger than expected trade.
December 6th, 20108:09 am
Alright folks, here we go! Winter meetings are starting today and this is where we get the juiciest rumors of the whole offseason. Lots of deals and signings go down this time of year. So glad that Frank has all of our needs filled so he can just sit back and relax and let other people come to him, and maybe make a trade if he feels the need to.
Only thing I see him really trying to do is getting rid of KK.
December 6th, 20108:12 am
I cant believe the Brewers traded their #1 prospect for a guy like Marcum.
December 6th, 20108:14 am
Going to file a new blog shortly, with Jordan Schafer stuff.
December 6th, 20108:39 am
I have a feeling that Jordan does really well this spring and will make the team is the 4th outfielder. Just a funny feeling. We all know the guy didnt forget how to hit, its just a matter of swinging without holding back.
December 6th, 20108:48 am
Jayson Werth is an $18M/year player for 7 years? Yikes….
December 6th, 20108:54 am
Well, the Nats HAD to overpay for a player like Werth to get them to come there, only problem is thats not how Carl Crawfords agent will see it, he will see it like “well, Werth got 18 million so Carl should get at least that if not more.” He wont look at the fact that Werth is way overpaid.
December 6th, 20109:20 am
boy the nats sure screwed over every other team in baseball with their “irresponsible” signing of werth. hear crawford wants a 10 year 190 mil contract now.
December 6th, 20109:26 am
Many other free agents before Jayson Werth pushed the FA ceiling to ridiculous heights over the years. While Werth’s contract most assuredly inflates the asking price of other FAs, free agency has always been (and will remain) a seller’s market, stocked with over-priced goods.
December 6th, 20109:31 am
Mets GM Sandy Alderson on the Werth signing…
“It makes some of our contracts look pretty good. I thought they were trying to reduce the deficit in Washington.”
December 6th, 20109:34 am
I don’t think Jason Werth is going to produce 18 mill a year werth in Washington, but it’s nice to have the money.
December 6th, 20109:37 am
Here is what I see Werth averaging in Washington.
.280 23 homers and 89 RBI’s
Not Werth 18 million
December 6th, 20109:41 am
Werth is not going to put people in the seats, sorry, he is not an exciting player like Carl Crawford who can steal you a ton of bases and so on. Werth is just a less injury prone Josh Willingham. They put up about the same numbers. Just one stays on the field longer.
i think it’s safe to say that any exciting additions to the braves roster will be via trade for the forseeable future.
December 6th, 20109:46 am
And we don’t need to discuss a salary cap huh? With the decline of older players that can no longer use inhancements to prolong their careers, younger players will be signed to longer contracts with more money. Long term extensions can kill a team if the players don’t pan. The big money teams just eat the contract and go spend some more. Just becasue the Yankees spent 17mil a year on Jeter doesn’t make them better but if he doesn’t work out they aren’t strapped for cash to replace him. I give a lot more credit to teams like the Twins and Brewers that have limited budgets and still compete.most of the top spending teams in MLB are in the American League. Just another advantage like the designated hitter.
with werth coming to town all i can say to the rest of the nats team is you better hide yo kids and hide yo wives…well mostly just your wives.
December 6th, 20109:47 am
Gonna give you some stats for 2 players over the past 7 to 8 years, you tell me who they belong to.
Player 1’s career averages.
.272 batting average with 25 homers and 85 RBI’s, .848 OPS
Player 2’s career averages.
.265 Batting average with 25 homers and 82 RBI’s, .841 OPS
Can you tell me who those stats belong to and which one of those players just got a huge contract and which one is a guy they are about to trade to make room for him?
December 6th, 201010:05 am
im very surprised at the werth signing. i did not see him going to washington. ive got to hand it to the nats, though. they dont want to be a losing team, and they are doing something about it. good for them…but im not sure if this helps them in the long run.
also wanted to opine on the linebrink trade. i was very happy when i heard wren got $3.5mil in the deal along with him, making this another steal by our GM. dude gets an A+ as far as im concerned.

For what it’s worth re national tile games – The last two years I thought the SEC team would win but that it would be a game(you can actually pull my prediction for last year’s Alabama-Texas game and see it was darn close on the final score).
The last time I felt THIS stringly about the game was Florida Ohio State – when I saw and heard everyone picking Ohio State and remember thinking – what are they smoking this game is a complete mismatch (and was right)
I dont dislike Oregon or the Pac-10. I have no reason to. I dont particularly like Auburn. Matter of fact, back in the Pat Dye days they were one of my least favorite teams. AND I am not saying Oregon is bad. They are a decent football team – probably the fifth or sixth best team in the country
The fact of the matter is simply this. Oregon doesnt belong on the same football field with Auburn.
Whatever the line is on this game – bet the house on Auburn. It’s easy money — Robert, Dec. 5
Hey OBrien – what kind of odds you give me if I make it two touchdowns but make it real money?
Enough of this. — Robert, Dec. 4
January 11th, 201112:47 am
Remind me again – how many bowl eligible teams are there in the Pac-10? (4, by wins , one of whom cant go due to NCAA punishment)
The SEC is going to send at least 8 teams to bowl games
Oregon has all of one win that even catches your eye. They put up 50 on a way overrated Stanford team. Big deal
Auburn has played and beaten LSU, Alabama, and Arkansas. (and now South Carolina) All of those teams would wipe the field with Oregon. — Robert, Dec. 4.
Note: Of the four teams Robert said would “wipe the field with Oregon,” they went 2-2 in bowl games. Arkansas lost to Ohio State and South Carolina to Florida State, while Alabama destroyed Michigan State and LSU handled Texas A&M. And Robert was right about the SEC sending at least eight teams to bowl games. It sent 10, and they went 5-5.
Again, I’ll point out that most of us acknowledge the SEC is the best football conference, and has been for years. It’s just that Robert goes so far beyond reason, exaggerating the conference’s advantage over others much as he exaggerates every flaw on Cox’s resume and believes virtually all others except him are wrong in their assessment of the now-reitired manager.
But I don’t want to sound like I’m down on Auburn winning tonight. Not at all. They deserved it and had a magical season. Much respect for a team that can come back as many times as Auburn did this season against tough competition, particularly against ‘Bama. Helluva year.
January 11th, 201112:48 am
Oregon wins and is in.
Auburn cruising against South Carolina
Expect to see Auburn a 7-10 point favorite in the title game
And expect it to be a blowout.
After it’s over, you’ll hear hear stories of Auburn players watching film preparing for the game and knowing that they had already faced far better several times during the year
Auburn 45 Oregon 10 – Robert, Dec. 4
