I’m Debating and Ovulating as to weather to watch the race or not, but I think I’m just gonna do posts and play Madden
Show it again in slow motion………….
February 27th, 20127:28 pm
I was going to joke around and say first lap then i decided just to say 32 for the heck of it. Now attention back on baseball
February 27th, 20127:29 pm
Didn’t mean it to sound negative Just wanted to make sure you didn’t think I was trying to tell you that you were wrong- I suspect you know a lot more about racing than I do
February 27th, 20127:31 pm
oh cab,,, no problem. I am far from an expert. I appreciate what they do but that is about it. I only know about it because of former work I used to do.
That Sucks That Zimmerman got Locked Up, Long Term…I was gonna lust for him after Chipper retires, Oh Well forget that plan
February 27th, 20127:33 pm
I am always amused when the drivers are interviewed and they can’t just say “Our team”- It’s always “Our NAME THE 12 SPONSORS OF THE CAR Team” EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Dude- I know they give you a lot of money, but it’s written on your car, your hat, your jumpsuit, and you named your first born after it. WE GET IT
February 27th, 20127:35 pm
there is talk that Harper will not come up to the Nat’s til after April 25, it would give them an extra year before free agency kicks in.
The whole Baseball Tonight show from Braves camp today isn’t online but they have a short 2min video.. http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=7622221&categoryid=2378529
It’s in their contract, cab.
February 27th, 20127:36 pm
I’m sure it is. But it still amuses me greatly
February 27th, 20127:37 pm
The naysayers would not have liked the attention that BT gave the Braves today. It was way too positive.
How old is Harper? 19
Especially when it’s something that sounds so…ridiculous to say 100 times, like the guy they interviewed after Jimmy Johnson, who had to say the SOMETHING-SOMETHING TRUCK BEDLINER Team…Just sounds so odd
February 27th, 20127:44 pm
Ha, yeah I loved the Bedliner bit.
February 27th, 20127:45 pm
Have they talked to Danica?
Bat yeah he is 19
February 27th, 20127:47 pm
Davey Johnson says he wants Harper up if he is ready mentally and ready to handle major league pitching. I think the kid will do well if he listens to the vets and keeps his mouth shut.
February 27th, 20127:49 pm
Nope. She hasn’t actually gotten out of her car. The other two had to be checked out with the medical staff…
February 27th, 20127:50 pm
From what I’ve heard, it’s the listening to vets and keeping his mouth shut that is the problem…
February 27th, 20127:53 pm
exactly. I am sure Zimmerman and Werth will reach out to him being the good vets they are, but will he listen. I have said a few times, if he pulls some of his antics that he did last year, not only will he get nailed but one of his vet teammates will get nailed. Then it would be handled in the clubhouse.
February 27th, 20127:54 pm
I am paraphrasing..As she is in the garage. Danica has a new rear end. Sorry couldn’t resist.
February 27th, 20127:55 pm
February 27th, 20127:56 pm
A nice one it is, too.
February 27th, 20127:57 pm
Don’t know him so really shouldn’t be judgemental but Harper seems like a buttface.
cab,, guilty. like I said. I couldn’t resist. It was too easy, like a fat fastball down the middle.
February 27th, 20127:58 pm
The blog is overrun with boys! HELP!!!
February 27th, 20127:59 pm
Maybe Harper will grow up faster around those vets.
Soph, last year in the minors. harper hit a hr and as he was rounding the bases, blew a kiss to the pitcher. Please please do that one time in the majors. Just one time. he would never do it again.
And you just had to say “buttface” didn’t you? Right in the middle of THEM talking about Danica’s new rear end…
February 27th, 20128:00 pm
Welcome back, Bat. Good to see your name around here again.
He needs to do that to someone like Roy Halladay, who would have no problem putting one between his eyes…
February 27th, 20128:01 pm
Hi cabalicious. Sorry, poor choice of words but look at what Ray said he did in the minors. Seriously? Who does that? What an douche.
Freeman to 3rd base??? Why would you take a gold glove caliber 1st baseman and move him to 3rd base, especially when he runs with a safe on his back
He is a baby though – what 18 or 19?
February 27th, 20128:02 pm
Thanks, Soph. Nice to see you too. Ha, All Y’all
Ray – Harper needs more time in the minors. He was just in low A. He needs more time adjusting to the off-speed stuff
February 27th, 20128:03 pm
and we left it alone. Wasn’t going to touch it.
You never heard that? Yeah- apparently it was just the final straw in a list of attitude issues with him…Seems like he has been told all his life that he is AMAZING, and he believes that he is THE MOST AMAZING THING EVER TO PLAY THE GAME OF BASEBALL and doesn’t mind letting everyone else know it…
February 27th, 20128:04 pm
in a low A game, after a HR, Harper jogged around the bases in such a way that was so inflammatory his manager took him out before his next at bat (which would have led to a pitch between the eyes).
He needs time to mature. He is just 19
You must be married…
Does he still put that crap all over his face during games?
February 27th, 20128:06 pm
Ray – that was against the Sally league champion Greensboro Grasshoppers. His manager apologized to the Grasshoppers and took him out before his next at bat.
His teammates in low A were not thrilled with him on their team and they were happy when he went to high A. That comes directly from talking with them
I’m sure Harper will realilize they played big league ball before he came along and could get by without him just fine, at least I would hope so.
February 27th, 20128:07 pm
He does need to mature more. But not because he’s 19. Does anyone honestly think Freddie or Jason or Mac acted like that when they were 19? Or the vast majority of other major league stars? He just needs to have someone smack him upside the head (either psychologically or actually) and tell him to GROW UP
February 27th, 20128:09 pm
cab.. no. and soph– yes
Adam freakin’ Levine. Not ashamed to say I only started watching The Voice solely because of him. Wooh.
psychological is not really the word I was looking for, but it’s not coming to me- y’all understand what I mean…
February 27th, 20128:11 pm
Chipper had a brief moment in one of his first couple of years. It spouted off in the media about something and TP and the other vets basically told him, hey kid you have not paid your dues to speak yet. Til then shut up. Never a problem from that point.
February 27th, 20128:13 pm
yes we all knew what you meant and Adam levine knows what you mean too.
Hey, if you can talk about Danica, Soph & I can talk about Adam!
February 27th, 20128:16 pm
I wasn’t saying you couldn’t. And I was not dissing on A.L.
How many movies can they possibly make about the Titans? (The Greek gods, not the football team)
Ray can talk to us about Adam too.
Just teasing you
February 27th, 20128:18 pm
Well, I suppose they could make 100 movies about the football team too, but they probably wouldn’t be as…entertaining…
February 27th, 20128:19 pm
Not that I have actually seen any of the movies about the Titans…
February 27th, 20128:20 pm
But I have seen the Titans play, and I can not watch for more than 10 minutes, so there is no way a 2 hour movie would be more entertaining than one about the Titans…
Did you see Remember the Titans?
Remember the Titans…great movie.
February 27th, 20128:23 pm
Yes it was. I have no idea why in the remember the titans movie, they changed some of the hs names. Their hs was real but some of the hs they played in the playoffs that year they had changed the name.
February 27th, 20128:24 pm
I did not see Remember the Titans. But they only made one of those…
February 27th, 20128:27 pm
Dang! Everyone seems rather frisky on theol’ blog tonight!
February 27th, 20128:28 pm
Even Soph and cab!
February 27th, 20128:29 pm
I think I am officially outnumbered now
February 27th, 20128:31 pm
So, with Wilson out, DOB, I am sure that we are going to see a write-up soon on the state of SS play after the first two weeks, or after the first week of games? Wilson Sr. willl probably not be ready by Opening Day with his ouched calf.
February 27th, 20128:33 pm
The Braves have said they are going to look internally for the replacement of Wilson. It could be Hicks, Sutton or one of the other kids. I am guessing it would not be another rookie.
February 27th, 20128:34 pm
So if everyone wrecks or catches fire before the end of the race, who wins?
February 27th, 20128:35 pm
Me. Its in the by-laws. One of those unwritten rules. IF everyone wrecks. I win.
Also- I can’t believe I have not changed the channel yet…
February 27th, 20128:36 pm
Well, technically Gordon didn’t wreck…or do engines blowing up count?
February 27th, 20128:40 pm
Well at least Danica made it back.
February 27th, 20128:41 pm
if they can’t finish it counts.
I…don’t want to win a fire suit that someone has been wearing inside a HOT CAR FOR 3 HOURS WITHOUT A BREAK.
February 27th, 20128:42 pm
Than I will be cheering for a wreck that takes out the rest of the field
February 27th, 20128:44 pm
I don’t think you are the type they are targeting with that contest, cab.
I am hoping for Drew Sutton to back up Pastornicky till Wilson gets back.
It’s just kinda icky…I mean, I can only imagine what that thing smells like after a race…
February 27th, 20128:45 pm
Stuck in the mud. Who hasn’t been there
February 27th, 20128:46 pm
then i will have to hustle my butt down to daytona.
Icky huh. Yeah you’re not it ……….. :lol :

Jack was not competing for starting spot; the starter is Pastornicky. So you’ve got Sutton and Josh Wilson competing for backup job in case Jack Wilson misses a week or two of regular season. Hardly riveting stuff, you know? Pastornicky is going to get most playing time this spring because they want him to get lot of at-bats and to work with Uggla.
February 27th, 20128:49 pm
but theres my ideal 1-8
February 27th, 20128:50 pm
cab.. could be worse. Could be one of the races in july when its about 120 degrees in the car.
“Also – I can’t believe I have not changed the channel yet…”
cab, if you start quaffing down PBR’s and eating fire-sauced wings while wearing a wife-beater, then I’d REALLY start worryin’.
Speaking of Adam…Adam Lambert has finally been invited to tour with Queen. That is a perfect fit in more ways than one, but especially musically.
I don’t even want to think about that…just…ick.
February 27th, 20128:52 pm
Certainly won’t have to worry about the PBR- I am a bit of a beer snob. I don’t wear a lot of tank tops, mainly because I don’t like my arms (although weight lifting has made me like them a little) but I do like a good super hot wing every now and then…
Folks, any chance the race will still be on by 10 PM? I get outta work by then, and wanna make it home in time for the winner’s donuts.
I’m Late on this but Happy Birthday Chip Caray!
I’m Sure the team is having a Party fr him since he lives in the Orlando area in the offseason…?
February 27th, 20128:53 pm
Speaking of quaffing…it’s wine o’clock. Or close enough…
February 27th, 20128:54 pm

Did y’all know in the early days of the AFL [early 1960s] the NY Jets were the NY Titans?
February 27th, 20128:56 pm
Simmons will not be Pastornicky’s back up. Simmons will play everyday in AA assuming he does not have a truly spectacular spring training
February 27th, 20128:57 pm
it’s always wine o’clock somewhere
It is in my world
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
