“Yeah, I’m overweight, no doubt about it, but I’m damned well intelligent enough to try to remedy the situation”
Anyone who truly thinks Cox was a great manager can not claim to be intellgient
Lew – I have no desire to get into a fight with you. I insulted you only when you popped off on me
You beleive what you believe – 2+2 will forever be 5 to you
I am curious what your excuse for Cox will be when this year’s Braves team wins the World Series
Fredi Gonzalez on the double Jason Heyward roped off the right center field wall….
“Shoot to get the ball to the top of the wall in this wind today?” Gonzalez said. “I would like to see where that ball would have landed with no wind. It might have gone over the scoreboard.”
All my stuff from today should be up on the Braves page now. Dig in at will.
March 1st, 20115:42 pm
“Thing are being DONE very differently” Not in all quarters, obviously. Some things never change – like obsessive compulsive idiocy that pretends to intelligence and good judgement like Robert, who can’t even figure out which word to emphasize with the caps…
March 1st, 20115:43 pm
I realize you have no desire to fight with me because you have no capabilities in that regard. Bring it on douche.
March 1st, 20115:44 pm
Why the Braves would win this year and not last? Dan Uggla.
Lew, I knew your parents raised you not to get into a battle of wits with an unarmed man.

Shoot, while we’re offering things up…
Maybe I can teach some of you guys how to hit
March 1st, 20115:46 pm
Add a healthy Martin Prado, healthy Chipper Jones, healthy Jair Jurrjens, fresh Mike Minor, and rejuvenated Nate McLouth to your 5:44
Oh, and not having a stiff at 1b on D helps too…
Shaun… your 3:50 pm. I wouldn’t argue that plate discipline is strictly a learned skill. I think temperament, among other qualities, definitely come into play. Having said that, there are talented kids who would benefit from Chipper Jones’ instruction; perhaps those with the inclination to be disciplined but who would benefit from Jones’ instruction and insights.
Trey – Idiocy constantly gets itself into untenable positions despite it’s lack of armament.
March 1st, 20115:47 pm
OH DEAR GOD…DID YOU SAY THE ONE ARMED…
March 1st, 20115:48 pm
Lew, oh okay, carry on!
March 1st, 20115:49 pm
Robert…you just described Bobby Bowden??
March 1st, 20115:51 pm
Fargo, which one was hilarious?
March 1st, 20115:52 pm
Robert – I love all the FAT jokes you throw my way. However, you seemingly forget that I’m friends with someone who has actually seen you. From what I understand, you aren’t appearing on the cover of People Magazine as their Sexiest Man of the Year anytime soon, either. You want to pick at physical deficiencies? Bring that one on, too.
March 1st, 20115:54 pm
You trying to figure out why Robert isn’t a Mensa member…haha
you may have to explain that one to him…
McFann Ô Ô
Robert No, they wouldve made me fat and stupid – kinda like you
Put a cork in it.
March 1st, 20115:55 pm
Fargo, yeah. He probably doesn’t understand sarcasm.
March 1st, 20115:58 pm
I “love” how when people get upset or whatever, the first thing they go to is always, “Well, you’re FAT!” So lame…oh so lame…
If that’s the best you cann do, that’s pretty danged pathetic…and says a lot about the person you’re arguing with.
Are you still harping on Bobby Frickin Cox????? He ain’t the manager any more. Don’t you have something else you can talk about?
Most of us realize what a treasure we had for many years with Bobby. You don’t agree. We get it. Most of us also realize how fortunate that we are to have Fredi Gonzalez to replace Bobby. Hopefully you realize the same.
But eventually, if you have half a brain, you’ll admit that FG is more similar to BC than he is different.
I log on, go to the last page; and your ranting about BC and arguing with Lew about him. Are you for real???
Now, I am calm. I apologize if I have offended your sensitivities. I do strive to the Da Sensitive One. But c’mon man, can’t you just let it go. For your own good.
As Bones McCoy would say, “MY GOD, man, I’m just an old country doctor!!”
Need I remind you that we are all Braves fans here. We are more alike than we are different.
Now, I have got to run. Back later tonight………….
March 1st, 20115:59 pm
^^ What he said ^^
March 1st, 20116:00 pm
Well, gotta go friends…Lew, I’ll let you know if its here yet…
I may try to get on later if my group doesn’t meet up to go hit…
We’re gonna try to go over to the dome tonight…should be interesting for me…all the time I’ve played and have never played in a dome
“I “love” how when people get upset or whatever, the first thing they go to is always, “Well, you’re FAT!” So lame…oh so lame…’
McFann, it shows the intelligence of a person, or, lack thereof.
March 1st, 20116:01 pm
PTown – Hit a few for me.
Trey – Good thing for me that I don’t get my self identity from my weight.
March 1st, 20116:03 pm
Lew, exactly. You are what you are. I guess if Robert gets a b**** bashing Cox, so be it. He is what he is. He is honestly worse than a woman complaining about her weight.
March 1st, 20116:04 pm
DS1….Very nice piece…very moving.
BUT! I am no way even remotely similar to Robert.
I’m not so sure he is a braves fan…
March 1st, 20116:06 pm
That’s for sure…
March 1st, 20116:41 pm
Hey, what happened?
March 1st, 20116:49 pm
Chopper i think Fredi is open to that idea too. …Course, the way Heyward drove the ball today it’s easy to see him as more of a run-producer too. …some of your scenario (walking Heyward with Gonzalez up) depends on how many guys are on base too and hitting behind Jones, McCann, Uggla, you figure some folks are going to be on….but yeah if Nate struggles, you rethink it for sure…..
March 1st, 20116:50 pm
This is weird!
March 1st, 20116:55 pm
Good thing for me that I don’t get my self identity from my weight
These Tagalongs are killing me. Freaking Girl Scouts….
March 1st, 20116:58 pm
I didn’t get girl scouts this year…probably a good thing since Tagalongs are my crack…
March 1st, 20116:59 pm
Time to go watch Biggest Loser?
Probably a good thing since kidnapping is illegal.
March 1st, 20117:03 pm
This is weird! NM Lee
Shaun trying to reason with Robert regarding intangibles was weird.
March 1st, 20117:04 pm
March 1st, 20117:08 pm
Time to go watch Biggest Loser? _ NM Lee
Why would anyone have to go watch, Robert and Don have been right here. Hard to pick the winner/loser, I know.
March 1st, 20117:14 pm
don’t want the girl scouts, just their cookies
March 1st, 20117:16 pm
Watching Robert obsess is sad, but it’s even sadder that the blog populace fall for him every time and engage him in debate. I dont know what people expect – he talks about ice cream or pizza – dont reply. That’s just the hook – eventually he will bring it to his favorite topic. He talks about baseball – definitely dont engage. Granted – somedays he seems more reasonable than others – but why would people want to engage in any sort of discussion with someone so clearly unhinged. “Balderdash” and walk away.
March 1st, 20117:19 pm
Curse of the tagalongs,I understand your pain.
March 1st, 20117:20 pm
McNate batting .600 huh?
March 1st, 20117:21 pm
SB – the reason I (and others I’m assuming) respond to him is because of how ridiculous and stupid he sounds. It bothers me that someone is so convinced that his theory – based on sketchy logic, little fact, and huge assumptions – is 100% sound and everybody else in the world (except him) is an idiot because they don’t see it.
March 1st, 20117:22 pm
CB – I’m trying to limit myself to one a night, but it’s tough.
Hey, I haven’t gotten mail in awhile.
March 1st, 20117:24 pm
Building up a list to lay on you at one time. How is moving,started yet? I have a truck.
March 1st, 20117:25 pm
Closing date’s the 29th. They said I can’t do anything until then. Which stinks because there’s a lot of stuff to do – like paint, new carpets, new floors, needs a new AC.
Whatever…4 weeks from today.
March 1st, 20117:30 pm
I hate moving,you have my sympathy. Will you be closer to work or Turner Field?
Totally agree that it bothers me too. But having watched the results over the years, it seems like no amount of effort from any number of folks is going to change him. And the blog quality degrades considerably. Just like with PL.
Fredi should play Ross tomorrow…he hasn’t played in a couple days. BMac cann go Thursday…
March 1st, 20117:31 pm
sb 0 Because six years of his crap is more than can be tolerated?
I’m actually excited about it. And it’s about 3 miles from where I currently live, so not much closer to either.
March 1st, 20117:32 pm
SB – at least it unifies us
March 1st, 20117:33 pm
Balderdash him,SB. No other answer,he just tears the blog down.
March 1st, 20117:34 pm
Sure it’s sad. I wonder sometimes if he just does it for amusement, to get a rise out of people, but man if so he’s committed.
I typed out a response to him using all my considerable cussing skills, and I can make Lee Alia look like a rank amateur, but then thought, why bother, and deleted it.
Balderdash it is.
March 1st, 20117:36 pm
Yup- that’s what I’ll do.
March 1st, 20117:39 pm
Just read thru the old blog and saw some great, intelligent comments, none of which came from Robert, of course. I had forgotten how big a fool he is.
March 1st, 20117:40 pm
Speaking of exercise—I’ve almost totally fallen in love with this 26″-wheel bike at Target. It looks like an old-fashioned bike (from like, the 50’s-60’s), is the perfect shade of blue…it’s a “men’s bike”, but I don’t really care…the “women’s version” is red and white…
I’ve had my 24″-wheeler for about 8 or 9 years, I guess…prob’ly out grew it 3 years ago, and haven’t done much riding over the last two years. But I’ve got money from working now, and am really thinking about buying it. Only weird part will prob’ly be that this bike has no hand breaks. I really like my hand-breaks, but could more than likely make the switch back…
March 1st, 20117:42 pm
Bat M. I wonder sometimes if he just does it for amusement, to get a rise out of people
I think that’s the main reason my Grandpa goes off on Cox, but he’s nowhere near Robert’s league…
March 1st, 20117:45 pm
Not sure if this link has been posted (or how old it actually is), but it’s kind of scary how much “love” the Braves are getting from all the pundits.
Obviously Buster Olney (ESPN), likes the Braves. Foxsports with the above link, thinks they’re 2nd only because the phillies are so good, and si.com had a nice story on why the Braves will keep up with the Phillies.
My favorite part of all of this? That at the end of that video on foxsports, Bowden predicts a “breakout” year for Tommy Hanson and said he “may be the Cy Young award winner in the NL”.
How can you not like that?
March 1st, 20117:57 pm
but he’s nowhere near Robert’s league… _ McFann
The balderdash league.
March 1st, 20117:59 pm
March 1st, 20118:01 pm
Exactly. He’s just in the, “Hey, I know how to get a rise outta my Daughter and Grandkids!” League. It’s all good…
March 1st, 20118:05 pm
Considering how long the trip is tomorrow, it’s entirely possible we will see Rossy then and Mac on Thursday…unless he really, really misses those long bus rides from the minors
March 1st, 20118:22 pm
McFann, it’s not a wonder on why you said you don’t like facebook.
March 1st, 20118:24 pm
If you don’t put that information on your page, they can’t share it with anyone…
March 1st, 20118:25 pm
cab, but how do you know that they won’t require it eventually?
March 1st, 20118:27 pm
Hey face book, give them my number 1-900- BIG- MONY
Not sure how they could…
March 1st, 20118:28 pm
cab, it wouldn’t surprise me one bit.
If they required it, I’d deactivate.
March 1st, 20118:29 pm
Or pull a Bat (a la his 8:27).
Unless they plan on charging for their services, which would cause them to lose a large portion of their users, I really don’t see how they can decide to require that info
March 1st, 20118:30 pm
Catching up on today’s news a little late, but thanks for the multiple blog posts Carroll.
March 1st, 20118:31 pm
Plus, whatever you put on your profile is probably already being shared. Really nothing new.
cab, I’m just sayin’, it wouldn’t come as a shock to me if it did come to that. You can already find all your information on sites like spokeo.com.
March 1st, 20118:32 pm
Oh, I have no doubt it is…there are reasons I don’t even like using pictures of myself for my profile (I mean, aside fromt he fact that I don’t like pictures of me )
March 1st, 20118:33 pm
1) I’ve been on Facebook for 6+ years now (as Tomahawkin would say, I’m one of the OG’s) and I’ve never gotten a suspect call, visitor, or letter.
2) Facebook doesn’t have my phone number
3) I’m more concerned about the ads Facebook thinks I’m interested in. They want me to sign up for a dating service featuring this improbable young lady
The little ads that pop up on the side after you login – yup, they’re not psychic. They use the info in your profile to compile those. Always irks me.
March 1st, 20118:35 pm
I also use an e-mail address for Facebook that is one that I only use for junk mail so they don’t even have my primary contact there (oh, and I’m listed as being from Los Angeles, which is technically accurate without being too specific)
jeffrey, I want you to know that I logged into fb earlier and that was the first thing I saw on my news feed. Thanks a lot.
March 1st, 20118:36 pm
Okay, jumping on Lew is like jumpin on McFann! Robert better watch himself or he will have all us blog faithful out to get him!
March 1st, 20118:37 pm
How do you think I felt?
March 1st, 20118:39 pm
The little ads that pop up on the side after you login – yup, they’re not psychic. They use the info in your profile to compile those
Glad you said that right after I said I had an ad featuring that lady.
March 1st, 20118:40 pm
Let’s go see what jeffrey has in his profile.
March 1st, 20118:41 pm
And you know I had to look…
thanks for the blog and the updates Carroll.
I am excited to hear that the ball is hopping off Heyward’s bat again. Before he hurt his thumb, I can’t remember the last Brave I saw where the ball came off the bat that hard.
March 1st, 20118:44 pm
of course, then I had to look up Soph too
March 1st, 20118:47 pm
I don’t think I have anything on mine.
March 1st, 20118:48 pm
I know FaceBook doesn’t have to be creepy, but still…I’m just not comfortable with putting even my name on a public thing…although one could use a fake name and fake info if they really wanted to…
cabravesfan Considering how long the trip is tomorrow, it’s entirely possible we will see Rossy then and Mac on Thursday…unless he really, really misses those long bus rides from the minors
BMac, you don’t wanna ride one a nasty old bus, do you?…No…wait! This isn’t reverse psychology!
You don’t. It’s very boring
March 1st, 20118:49 pm
You could even create a Facebook page as McFann
March 1st, 20118:50 pm
And your pic could be McCann bellyflopping into 3rd
March 1st, 20118:52 pm
Didn’t Carroll say Heap was not making the trip tomorrow?
March 1st, 20118:55 pm
There must not be a Golden Corral buffet in Fort Myers.
March 1st, 20118:58 pm
jeffrey d – that was funny right there The thing about Mac belly-flopping, not the Golden Corral comment.
March 1st, 20118:59 pm
Really? I thought the Golden Corral comment was funnier
McFann, I don’t blame you. I don’t put my birth name in many places, unless I am absolutely required.
March 1st, 20119:01 pm
Haha! Rally and Lucy McTurtle could have they’re own separate pages!
jeffrey d And your pic could be McCann bellyflopping into 3rd
If you could have moving pictures, I could put up the whole Triple, complete with Chipper busting a gut!
Then that means he WOULD be going!
She did? How could I have missed that…?
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
