You are a jerk just like my EX.
Can you send me your new number? I want to talk to you about something.
March 2nd, 20125:30 pm
No I am not going start anything new. I f you want to know something about me just ask.
March 2nd, 20125:32 pm
Samantha, are you new to the blog? 1st day I’ve seen you on here.
March 2nd, 20125:35 pm
I came on here yesterday
March 2nd, 20125:37 pm
well welcome to the blog, the best place to talk about the Braves, baseball and so many other topics. DOB is the best in the biz.
March 2nd, 20125:39 pm
Shaun how many wins is a handful,how many players does it take to fill that hand up?
March 2nd, 20125:40 pm
Samantha leaves, Ward arrives, Ward leaves, Samantha arrives. Hmmmmm….anyone seen nolie today?
March 2nd, 20125:41 pm
I am glad to be here and very excited about seeing my first Brave game live instead of TV.
March 2nd, 20125:42 pm
he may be on the new bloggage
B-F_52 – That person you mentioned earlier? No, I haven’t met him, but I believe they did a newspaper article on him a couple years ago, so yeah, I have heard of him.
March 2nd, 20125:43 pm
I’m feeling stabby
March 2nd, 20125:44 pm
It definitely gives you more incentive to have the best record in the league, because you get a cakewalk first round series….MF
all the incentive in the world is meaningless if you caint get er done.
the essence of baseball has always been long seasons and many combined sample sizes/ One game playoff is the complete antithesis of the sport. save it for football
March 2nd, 20125:45 pm
Hi DOB, I made a rock’n'roll short film that I hope you’re gonna like featuring the song “Sweet Charlene” by The Burmese Crush. It’s a finalist in the Creative Loafing Short Cuts contest and I need you and our fellow Braves fans to check it out and vote for it. Go Braves!
What about Tomahawkin?
March 2nd, 20125:46 pm
..hey, sorry for just dropping it on the blog but I couldn’t find your email.
New Mexico Lee
March 2nd, 20125:47 pm
kenhotlanta, I will tell you the same thing that I told Murph. Believe what you want it doesnot bother me any more. You are a jerk just like my ex.
March 2nd, 20125:48 pm
Mixxo, yeah, him too. Somebody needs to check some IP’s and see who’s who.
March 2nd, 20125:49 pm
March 2nd, 20125:50 pm
What does that mean?
Samantha, sorry I wasn’t being personal, I like you and Ward. I was just commenting that you and Ward are never on here at the same time. Just sayin’.
McFann :Ô: :Ô: :ô:
Severe storm threats = the only thing I HATE about Spring…
March 2nd, 20125:51 pm
Is that Ward? haha seems like it.
March 2nd, 20125:56 pm
McFann, snowing here. Be safe.
Hi McFann, I did something today I think you would be proud of.
I think it is whoever writes ward
March 2nd, 20125:57 pm
10 inches of snow yesterday .Sleet and freezing rain tonight, turning to rain and total mush tomorrow.
March 2nd, 20125:59 pm
McFann :Ô: :Ô: :ô: I think we have some Weather in the ATL and North Georgia.
March 2nd, 20126:02 pm
It never fails, the day before or the day of, the first high school baseball game of the season it snows here. First game, tomorrow.
March 2nd, 20126:03 pm
Thanks, New Mexico Brave! I’m hoping the storm is weakening…You stay safe in that snow, too!
Hi! What’s that?
Huh? Why the winky…?
March 2nd, 20126:06 pm
New Mexico Lee-
It means I want to stab something…you know. Stabby
March 2nd, 20126:08 pm
I got tired of jerk calling me and hurting me so I changed my cell number and washed him right out of my life forever.
March 2nd, 20126:09 pm
O well ay, who are you unhappy with? And stay out of the kitchen.
March 2nd, 20126:10 pm
How did you not get “kobe”??? Between the jersey and the beautiful drawing of the cow drinking beer and turning into a steak I thought it would be easy!
March 2nd, 20126:11 pm
Kimbrel still a bargain after bigger-than-usual raise
March 2nd, 20126:12 pm
I’m unhappy at the editing that won’t do what I want… (yes, I know I was all sunshine and daisies earlier, but then something broke and it’s not working right.)
McFann: Weren’t cab and some others kidding on the blog a few days ago about “weather” in Orlando and the fact that we have “weather” everywhere? Maybe my memory is hazy, they say the mind is the second thing to go, and I’ll be darned if I can remember what the first thing is!
Tomahawkin AKA CouchKing!
What about Tomahawkin?”
SMH, Oh well, I’m already ready for the In-Game Blog Tomorrow, I already got Brats, Beer and Wine, On Deck!
March 2nd, 20126:15 pm
I was yelling at the Daytona announcers on Monday because they said “weather was on the way” I merely pointed out (in my charmingly ranty way) that “weather” cannot be “on the way” because it is not something that just randomly happens or comes and goes as it pleases. It’s WEATHER. IT IS ALWAYS HAPPENING. (and now I am ranting again…sorry!)
March 2nd, 20126:16 pm
For one of the few Times, That Philly Homer John Kincade was On Point Today on 680AMTheFan in how its gonna be Damn near Impossible for The O-Ventbrel Triple Team to repeat their performances of last year…
Dude had a one of a kind year that was Unnoticed by the media!
Expect that triple team to fall off some during this season…Its a daunting task for them to have duplicate seasons like 2011, and that is barring nagging Injuries as well…They can happen to anyone
chatttown….He also looks like a Kenny Wallace Clone
March 2nd, 20126:17 pm
I’m sorry cab, did you try rebooting, if that doesn’t work, kick it.
Sam, good move.
March 2nd, 20126:18 pm
it’s not my computer…it’s the wordpress set up we use for editing…it’s new and there are apparently still glitches that pop up suddenly…
March 2nd, 20126:20 pm
Of course, the upside is that I can’t do any more work on it until after the tech folk take a look, so I’m basically done for the day…
cab: That’s exactly what I was referring to, your comment about “weather” on the way to Daytona. Thanks for setting me straight, my memory does play tricks on me sometimes.
March 2nd, 20126:23 pm
There you go, silver lining. Now you can get an early start on that wine.
March 2nd, 20126:24 pm
March 2nd, 20126:25 pm
It’s still a bit early for that…
March 2nd, 20126:28 pm
West coast, I guess so. But you know the old saying, it’s 5 o’clock somewhere. lol
Hi cab, Did you see what I did today?
March 2nd, 20126:30 pm
For sure…but I do try to wait until it’s 5:00 here (or at least until VJ gets home)
I did! Good for you
March 2nd, 20126:32 pm
I always forget how gorgeous Rebecca Romijn is
March 2nd, 20126:33 pm
Waiting on Ward to come back now that Samantha has vanished. I figured she’d tell someone else about changing her number and calling them a jerk like her ex……
March 2nd, 20126:34 pm
Tomahawkin AKA CouchKing! -
lol Not hatin’ T…..jus’ playin’ dawg.
You’re not “Samantha” then?
March 2nd, 20126:35 pm
I hope the Braves get some good bats from the wood turners this year
March 2nd, 20126:40 pm
I am still here VaBraves. I am also waiting so you guys decide for yourself. Believe what you want.
March 2nd, 20126:42 pm
“Tomahawkin AKA CouchKing! -
lol Not hatin’ T…..jus’ playin’ dawg.
I know you were! Do It Again! Do It Again!
March 2nd, 20126:44 pm
I know you guys are just kidding. Please lay off for now.
March 2nd, 20126:47 pm
I am Sammy….relax “Hon.”
No malicious intent here.
March 2nd, 20126:59 pm
It’s 5 o’clock somewhere and that would be here. Have a good weekend everybody. Talk to you Monday. Go Braves.
March 2nd, 20127:02 pm
Night NM Lee
March 2nd, 20127:03 pm
n8 hasn’t been around much lately.
who pissed in his cereal and chased him off
March 2nd, 20127:04 pm
its been 5 o clock here all day, working on second bottle of vino
March 2nd, 20127:06 pm
You wouldn’t happen to live near Statesville wouldja?
Jus wondering cuz I knew a HUGE Braves fan from these parts that moved up there.
March 2nd, 20127:07 pm
Just a comment regarding Gaddis. Too many young people get off course and feel their lot in life is set. The biggest value in stories like Gaddis’ is it’s proof for people who think they can’t or even don’t deserve to chase their dreams. Just find the right people who can guide and support you and go after it..whatever it is.
March 2nd, 20127:08 pm
Sorry, cannot wait any longer. Eat, Shower and off to work. Have a good night everyone.
March 2nd, 20127:09 pm
That one game playoff with 2 WC teams is a Load of BS, Gawd I hate Dud Selig!
The One Game Crap is FUBR, It needs to be a best of three, because in any game with a Crap Umpire (Pornstache Bill Hohn, or Cowboy Joe West) with their F’d Up Calls can decide a game and an upset, We All saw that in 1997…And The Braves have had the WORST luck in The Playoffs in Sports the last 20 years Period!
And Dud Selig, If you are listening…? Reduce the S. Training Schedule by a week to 10 days…And oh yeah I got two words For Ya?
March 2nd, 20127:12 pm
“n8 hasn’t been around much lately.
who pissed in his cereal and chased him off”
I haven’t seen N8 on here in a Gripp! He Didn’t get Bozo’d did he…?
I haven’t been posting on here much from the J.O.B.B. been busy doing testing the last 10 days or so
hmmm samantha goes to work at 9-11 at night…wonder where she is tending bar
March 2nd, 20127:14 pm
prety close mixxo about 30 miles
Braves set for Grapefruit opener; Freeman recovering quickly
March 2nd, 20127:20 pm
man I knoww it doesn’t look likely and I don’t mean to come off slighting those damaged by the storms. But I sure hope it doesn’t rain out little tiger’s baseball practice tomorrow
March 2nd, 20127:29 pm
Dig this song by the great Hellbound Glory, with a funny fan-made video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4LB_703jtE
March 2nd, 20127:34 pm
Let Me Have Dud Selig’s Job for a Season for 35K plus free hotel travel free food and bar tabs…It would be mandatory that there would be…”If I Ruled The World, Imagine That!”
-3 Division Winners with 2 WC’s The 1995-2011 format
-3 Week S. Training
-Instant replay provided a lead official who watches the games and gets reviews of the Crew Chief’s consent, not the managers
-Ol Yeller The Unbalanced Schedule, I hate seeing the Nats and Marlins 18 times a year, those games are borefests. Make the Schedule balanced w/ interleague play like it was from 1995-2000
-Umpire Ramification for Blantant Blown Calls (Pay Attention Bill Hohn, Cowboy Joe)
-Legal PED usage
-The Teams Own Commentators call the LCS/W. Seties Games…The team that hosts the home game uses its commentators on FOX, That would Ol Yeller Blow Buck and Tim McSlobber and their personal bias for either STL or NE teams
-More Sat Day games, and No Games starting after 7 even in the Playoffs
-Permament Cheerleaders with Stripper Poles per seated section
Feel Free To Add
March 2nd, 20127:37 pm
This will never happen, mainly because starting games at 4:00 on the west coast is a terrible idea.
(and I’m not going to touch the legal PED thing…)
looks like t-hawk has been hitting it hard early on a friday…
March 2nd, 20127:38 pm
cab – you musta missed point 12 get rid of those west coast teams
March 2nd, 20127:39 pm
That one seems to have fallen off my screen…
Oh and Dud Selig Makes 20 mill to make these Dub Ass changes just because “Its All About The Benjamins Baby!”
March 2nd, 20127:40 pm
Just to make sure T-Hawkin doesn’t think I hate him, I do like the shorter Spring Training, but I don’t think 3 weeks is long enough for pitchers…let’s go with 4 weeks.
March 2nd, 20127:43 pm
“looks like t-hawk has been hitting it hard early on a friday…”
LMAO…I’m just starting to get Tuned Up…
Its my 3 day weekend, but I havent Felt Right all day after Eating a Triple Meat Five Guys burger and two sides of fries
MLB network will rebroadcast Braves games : 3/9 (live) 1pm Yanks; 3/14 (live) 6pm Nats; 3/16 6am Phils, 10pm Astros; 3/18 7am Mets; 3/19 10pm Cards; 3/21 10pm Nats; 3/27 3am Mets; 4/1 9am Tigers
Set those DVRs.
March 2nd, 20127:44 pm
Sucks all the spring training games are not televised.
March 2nd, 20127:46 pm
“This will never happen, mainly because starting games at 4:00 on the west coast is a terrible idea.”
I meant 7pm local time…I still love sacrificing sleep to watch the West Coast Swing games because thanks to that crappy unbalanced schedule, the Braves usually only make 1 trip out there even though 2011 was an exception with the Seattle trip
March 2nd, 20127:47 pm
t-hawk…so I see your breakfast but what did you have for lunch
March 2nd, 20127:50 pm
I know you meant local time- but you still have to consider when West Coast teams play on the east coast, especially in the play-offs, that if you start a game at 7, half the fan base that would be watching the game is still at work…that’s not good
March 2nd, 20127:51 pm
“Sucks all the spring training games are not televised.”
I think they don’t televise them on purpose…
Way back,before the New wave S. Training Parks were built, most S. Training facilities were dumps to televise games at…Not to mention the main reason that S. Training games arent televised is because they are played during the day when everyone is at work…Teams are not gonna waste money to televise minor leaguers play…it doesn’t appeal to the casual fan like the NFL preseason does…which is moot
I’m ok with listening to the games on Radio, that is an element of the game that is close to extinct with kids today…Kids are so Spoiled with Satellie cable and internet
March 2nd, 20127:52 pm
And believe me, I am sadly aware of how often the do/don’t come out here anymore
March 2nd, 20127:53 pm
glad to hear PRado is motivated. He does have a lot to prove again. A lot of people are trying to put him back in the super utility role. Prado was unselfish moving to LF but he needs to produce at the plate. He also needs to show that the lack of hustle on a couple plays towards the end of the year was a fluke.
March 2nd, 20127:54 pm
also glad to see the Braves gave Kimbrel a larger than average raise. Dude deserved it. Little money given freely when deserved helps keep the young guys happy. Good to keep a good relationship
March 2nd, 20127:55 pm
That was my Breakfast and Lunch
I hate Breakfast food! (Eggs, Biscuits, Milk, Pancakes, Waffles)—-YUCK
The only Breakfast I eat is Sugarry Cereal with Marshmellows, Apple Cinn. Oatmeal, Hashbrowns and Chewy Bacon..Ya know that Bacon That is Chewy as a Gummy Saver, Full of Grease
So Far This year I bet I have only ate a decent breakfast a handful of times…
March 2nd, 20127:56 pm
any TV coverage for the grapefruit opener???
March 2nd, 20127:58 pm
People who do not like bacon can’t be trusted. It is un-American.
With all due respect to the bloggers here, if the geniuses, had half of the mind Bud has, and where a fourth of what he has accomplished, they would never be seen on this blog. Kinda like Mark Cuban, Donald Trump, Conan, Leno, Seinfeld, and Bill Clinton that don’t post here, because they have made their mark in life rather than bash other people’s accomplishments that bloggers can never achieve.
Get off the drugs bloggers
What is stabby? On another note, why so many of you picking on new blogger Samantha?
March 2nd, 20127:59 pm
AGREE on starting times and shorter ST.
March 2nd, 20128:00 pm
Wanting to plunge a knife into something. Stab it. Stabby.
March 2nd, 20128:03 pm
That Opening Day Series in The Rotten Apple is Right around the Corner…
Braves have a Cake April Schedule in April. Its Imperative that they Don’t Leave their Bats in Florida like They have done the last 2 years…because Our Interleague Schedule is Brutal…!
March 2nd, 20128:04 pm
ok, cab you did mean it literally. I was wondering if that was so.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
