March 3rd, 20121:20 am
I’d settle for sleep-filled…
March 3rd, 20121:21 am
I’ll just be around for the beginning of the game tomorrow, then off to work…
March 3rd, 20121:31 am
As always, appreciate the warning, VJ. Good night.
Hello, Trey…. and good night, too. Stop back again when I’m in a more westerly time zone.
Yeah, I won’t be sleeping for a while, VJ, heh. My medication tired me out and I fell asleep after work for a couple of hours. So, I am going to be up for quite a while.
March 3rd, 20121:34 am
I mean tires me out*
March 3rd, 20121:41 am
i’m so conflicted between my braves blog online world and my facebook online world…splitting time is so difficult
I miss counterstrike
March 3rd, 20121:45 am
tiger, just do both at the same time!
March 3rd, 20121:49 am
Everyone in Georgia, stay safe. I heard about the tornadoes down there. Hopefully it’s all still in tact next time I go back home.
March 3rd, 20121:55 am
insert comment about southern culture and lack of tact here…
March 3rd, 20121:58 am
well trey, marsha is sad but jan is happy.
March 3rd, 20122:01 am
i try and do them both but i would rather have something to focus on I split time between enough stuff at work…but now I’ll commit to sleep
when its sleepy time down south…..
March 3rd, 20122:02 am
long time no see bravey.
even with the tide rolling, giants winning, junior second at daytona.
still no sight of the six-4 man of the law.
March 3rd, 20122:06 am
this sight could use a little braveheart, grinch, and bravesdave.
kinda going stale late night.
bravesdave was a legend.
March 3rd, 20122:10 am
uga, that’s surprising. Usually Jan is sad and Marsha is all happy.
March 3rd, 20122:14 am
trey, not about davey jones.
marsha loved davey jones.
March 3rd, 20122:17 am
trey, dont know your age, but marsha in the late 70’s to mid 80’s was fine.
March 3rd, 20122:19 am
pretty sure our everday crusader liked marsha brady.
hard not to.
March 3rd, 20122:24 am
Oh, that’s what you were referring about, uga.
Davy Jones finally cleaned out his locker, I s’pose, uga.
March 3rd, 20122:25 am
Uga, I am 24 1/2
March 3rd, 20122:40 am
trey, the brady bunch was probably before your time.
same genre of gilligans.
March 3rd, 20122:42 am
marsha brardy was probably the first girl many of of us had a crush on.
March 3rd, 20123:02 am
good for the saints. we had shrunken heads on the back of our helmets for big hits.
we tried to knock out everything that moved,
such is football.
got a shrunken head for every big hit.
wish the falcons had a bounty.
Hello everyone! Let’s Go!!!!!Braves!!!!! indeed…….
March 3rd, 20123:04 am
Brought me a new Braves Cap,and should have by Friday next week…….
March 3rd, 20123:05 am
Also getting ready for March Madness,and have to say “Go!!!!!Duke!!!!!”…….
March 3rd, 20123:06 am
Going to buy some more Braves gear next month…..
March 3rd, 20123:11 am
Braves,and Duke this month can’t beat that!!!!!!!
Tomahawkin (Mr Boombastic!)
March 3rd, 20123:22 am
Wayyy F;d Up!
March 3rd, 20123:25 am
Tomahawkin-How’s it going?
March 3rd, 20123:27 am
Did anyone see Jennifer Lopez nipple slip up at oscars? Was on MSN today……
March 3rd, 20123:43 am
uga, it was before my time, but I still watched the re-runs as a kid.
March 3rd, 20124:19 am
Well, guy’s have a good One! Hard to believe Spring Training is here……… Peace My Friends……..”Go!!!!! Braves!!!!!”
March 3rd, 20124:43 am
I swear that dog gets out at least once a week.
Probably on garbage day. My neighbor has some kind of bird dog. The only bird she ever gets is a chicken carcass out of a garbage can.
March 3rd, 20125:14 am
Less than 8 hours to tip off.
March 3rd, 20126:03 am
ZWacky – Deja vu. Like a call to the bullpen for…Blaine Boyer.
March 3rd, 20126:12 am
Good morning, folks. Game day. Even if it’s an exhibition, it’s game day. Prince and the Tigers in town to face the Braves, and it’s gonna be sunny and freakin’ 90 degrees!
March 3rd, 20126:55 am
i love baseball, apple pies and some chevrolets
but yuck to the hot dogs
March 3rd, 20127:19 am
Bummed out the game isn’t on MLB.tv today.
March 3rd, 20127:20 am
Easy, easy, easy. No injuries today, please.
March 3rd, 20128:26 am
Kinda’ quiet for the start of ST. I guess last fall dampened the expectation of our latest World Series run.
March 3rd, 20128:27 am
Just say “no” to pay-per-view.
March 3rd, 20129:16 am
Good morning, blog denizens.
I didn’t even bother to get MLB.TV this year because they’re hardly showing any Braves games. Kinda sad that we have to wait almost a week to see a game.
March 3rd, 20129:17 am
I know, DOB, it’s exciting, even if we have to listen to the game rather than watch it.
March 3rd, 20129:18 am
ncgary, anyone who doesn’t love hot dogs is suspect to me. Fess up, what planet are you from?
March 3rd, 20129:41 am
From David’s Twitter….

S/O’s To Kat, Brava, richbrave and Mitchie-Sand
Its Gameday…And I’m Hungover! UGGHHHH!
March 3rd, 201210:01 am
Good Morning Guys, I got scared last night, I am not use to that.
March 3rd, 201210:03 am
S/O To Coach
How do you feel abt the bullpen?
because we all have to be real here in that the O-Ventbrel Triple will NOT repeat their performance from a year ago…
Its damn near impossible to have repeat seasons like they had in 2011, Especially My Boy Easy-E
McFann :Ô: :Ô: :ô:
March 3rd, 201210:04 am
DBackMac I pray that you remain safe during these storms. Good night and may God bless yo all.
Thank you. We’re fine, our house is in tact, but we didn’t get through it without a hitch.
Our beloved Lightning Tree—an oak tree just on the other side of our fence that was struck by lightning back in 2002—fell down. It was a small tree, but a great tree. The worst part of it is that a pair of Brown-Headed Nuthatches has been working hard for almost a month now making a hole to nest in. They were so much fun to watch, everyday getting deeper into the tree, poking their heads out every now and then to spit out some sawdust…
So we’re VERY thankful that we didn’t get hit as hard as so many others, but we are quite sad about the Nuthatches’ home.
March 3rd, 201210:06 am
Tom O’Hawke Poor, McFann. She’s probably hiding under her bed right now.
Well, if there wasn’t so much you-know-what under there, I might have been…
You really should be a little more like, T-Hawkin & Brian, in that respect. (But, ONLY, in that respect.)
Do they like storms…?
March 3rd, 201210:08 am
I was quite scared, myself. I hate these Spring storms—hate them. I wish I wasn’t so scared of them, but I am…Didn’t sleep much last night, but at least the house is still stand as are we…
March 3rd, 201210:12 am
March 3rd, 201210:13 am
I am more used to blizzards than that kind of storm. Kind of hard driving in it at 2am.
March 3rd, 201210:19 am
and away we go!!!!
March 3rd, 201210:24 am
South Georgia is catching heck this morning.
March 3rd, 201210:25 am
The votes are in…the two teams predicted to turn it around in 2012:
The Nationals ans Marlins.
March 3rd, 201210:29 am
Tomahawkin (Mr Boombastic!)
March 3rd, 2012
How do you feel abt the bullpen?
Not worried about the bullpen unless they get overworked again, which can only happen if the rotation doesn’t hold up. The two go hand in glove. So I would hope for good health from our starting five which goes toward helping our bullpen to be even more effective in 2012.
March 3rd, 201210:32 am
Well, since everyone seems quiet this morning. I guess i will try to go back to sleep. See you later.
March 3rd, 201210:33 am
• Cole Hamels isn’t the only household name in Philadelphia who’s a year away from free agency. Let’s not forget Shane Victorino. According to FanGraphs, only one center fielder in the National League was worth more wins above replacement than Victorino (5.9) last season: Matt Kemp (8.7).
So Victorino could find a healthy market next offseason if he makes it to free agency. But will he? After arriving in camp last week, he told MLB.com’s Todd Zolecki: “I don’t plan on going anywhere.”
I envisioned his agents, Seth and Sam Levinson, heading straight for the emergency room the second they read that quote. So I asked Victorino if he meant that quote the way it sounded. Was it so important to him to remain a Phillie that he’d stay at just about any price?
“What that statement was saying,” he said, “was that I’m willing to give up free agency. A lot of guys won’t. In the game of baseball, free agency is what every major league player dreams of. You want to maximize your value, and of course I do, too. But what’s important to me is, I want to be here. I love playing here. My family loves the city. I love the city. So when I made that statement, that’s what I meant.”
Has an impending free agent ever let a club know he’d take a hometown discount more clearly than that? Next thing you know, he’ll rent a billboard.
March 3rd, 201210:35 am
you are quoting a TradeRumors poll as a reliable source?
March 3rd, 201210:43 am
nolie, Fifteen thousand, four hundred and thirteen votes pale in comparison to your vast expertise
March 3rd, 201210:48 am
of course they do coach, glad that you finally realize that.
four hundred idiots prove nuttin’,
anyway I’m not disagreeing, just funnin’ about the source which is of dubious value at best….
March 3rd, 201210:51 am
Hi, Tomahawkin. Can’t wait for the game to begin.
March 3rd, 201210:53 am
McFann, sorry to hear about the demise of your tree, but glad you and your family made it through the storms safely.
There was a tremendous amount of damage about 5 miles from where I live. My son had to drive through some of it to get home last night and he was quite shaken by what he saw.
March 3rd, 201210:55 am
What’s up folks? I am so glad that baseball is back!
March 3rd, 201210:59 am
Nice, Nick. Some things never change. (sigh)
Hi, Trey, good to “see” you. I’m glad it’s back, too.
March 3rd, 201211:03 am
March 3rd, 201211:04 am
Brava, so I contemplated buying one of those new Braves jerseys, but when I called the Braves Store, those things were selling for either $245 or $275. A snowball has a better chance to go through Hell and back twice before I purchase that.
March 3rd, 201211:05 am
Well, at least while we are in a recession.
March 3rd, 201211:11 am
Trey, I got a couple for my son and I. Paid 67.99 for each at Sports Seasons.
Sign up for their emails and you’ll get 15% off on your order. My jerseys arrived two days after I ordered them.
March 3rd, 201211:28 am
Not bad, Brava. I will have to wait until I get back from Norfolk before I order, though.
March 3rd, 201211:29 am
McFann: I am glad you and your family are safe except for the tree with the bird’s nest. I was not making light of the weather last night and I apologize to you if I offended you in any way. I was just referring to cab’s comment about “weather” during the Daytona 500. The storms were very bad in Cobb County and my Daughter and her family were right in the middle of the tornado line for a few scary moments with extremely high winds, rain and hail. Everyone is safe and that is all that counts.
To Trey And Brava!
My Crew is Back…
Are you TDY?
March 3rd, 201211:30 am
Hey again, T.
March 3rd, 201211:38 am
Not until Monday. I will be driving up there tomorrow.
March 3rd, 201211:40 am
All jacked up!!!
This coffee isn’t helping either.
March 3rd, 201211:52 am
In case you missed it on the Twitter feed
Braves lineup today: 1.Bourn cf, 2.Prado lf, 3.Chipper 3b, 4.McCann c, 5.Uggla 2b, 6.Hinske 1b, 7.Heyward rf, 8.Diaz dh, 9.Pastornicky ss
Fielder and Miguel Cabrera are in there for the Tigres.
March 3rd, 201211:53 am
Freddie Freeman taking BP 4 days after right knee injury. You can see brace he’s wearing on right knee, which he said didn’t even bother him at all hitting.
March 3rd, 201211:54 am
Chipper in cage, 20th big-league camp Grapefruit opener:
March 3rd, 201211:55 am
Gameday. Can’t keep the Skipper out of the dugout:
Counting down to game time. Line up looks like what will be the opening day line up, except for Freeman in Hinske’s place and no DH.
I don’t know how I feel about the putting in an extra team for a one game playoff. That seems like it will make it more heartbreaking if your team finishes top of the WC, just to lose it to a third place team and we know all about heartbreak.
March 3rd, 201211:57 am
It’s LH Mike Minor for Braves today vs.Tigers RH Doug Fister. ATL relievers: Martinez, Varvaro, Vizcaino, big Adam Russell, Cordier
March 3rd, 201211:59 am
Thanks for the pix DOB. I love the shots which show the bat’s deflection. I didn’t realize that the bat flexed that much. Must be the thin handles and heavy barrels.
The pic of BC ought to get Robert’s dander up, but it’s good for the rest of us to see.
March 3rd, 201212:00 pm
We Get To See Princess Fielder! Thank Gawd he;s in the AL, He loves To Show out in the games I attend at the Chophouse
March 3rd, 201212:02 pm
“All jacked up!!!
I’m All Da Way Turn’t Up! Go Braves!
March 3rd, 201212:11 pm
I dunno how you do twitter? Facebook is enough for me
And for all Braves Fans Join :Braves Fans of D.O.B.’s Blog group on Facebook
We need more faces with the moniker names…
March 3rd, 201212:15 pm

March 3rd, 201212:16 pm

March 3rd, 201212:19 pm
Yes, I can. Is that where the game is?
March 3rd, 201212:29 pm
Where is everyone today? Guess nobody wants to talk. So guess I will go away until everyone is awake.
March 3rd, 201212:30 pm
You can buy your tickets at Turner Field, Samantha.
