yeah being voted second or third best catcher three years running in BBA is such a terrible thang………
March 3rd, 201210:16 pm
aaah yes, “wisest”
March 3rd, 201210:18 pm
….and take Heyward and Big Red with ya….

5-80 For B-Macc! Do It NOW!
The dude will be in line for the HOF if he has 3 more years of consistant production over 130 games per season…
Plus I don’t want my blue B-Macc jersey to become a “Throwback” like my Teixeira Jersey has become….
Nahhh, Mixxo knows his fake negativity shtick never gets old. Even after thousands & thousands of times, year after year.
I know it still has me in tears.
March 3rd, 201210:22 pm
might get a decent package of prospects if we can find one team that will take all 3 of them ….
not sure how much of it is fake Tom
March 3rd, 201210:25 pm
What – now there’s a fake Tom?
March 3rd, 201210:27 pm
we is all fakes
March 3rd, 201210:30 pm
This week, I actually disclosed my real identity and even offered a photo, along with a video with my wife. So my fakeness has been undermined.
True, noles, but I think some of us are more fake than others.
March 3rd, 201210:33 pm
I sometimes wonder if Moe Berg is really, Loosing Managar, Loosing Record.
There are so many similarities.
March 3rd, 201210:35 pm
Tom O’Hawke is quite perceptive.
March 3rd, 201210:37 pm
Oh, I’m quite something, alright… I’m just not sure if perceptive is the correct word.
March 3rd, 201210:41 pm
March 3rd, 201210:42 pm
so you’re NOT Moe Berg the famous baseball playing spy?
quite a character
McFann :Ô: :Ô: :ô:
March 3rd, 201210:43 pm
How fun! Maybe you’ll even see some foxes! I love foxes…Haven’t seen ours in a while, but with the birds starting to make their nests, that’s actually a good thing…
I’ll take that, Moe. It’s a lot better than what I would have said (and many others).
March 3rd, 201210:44 pm
nolie–Just my namesake. He died, when I was one.
March 3rd, 201210:45 pm
I is actually a Sherpa from Nepal who never even heard of baseball B4 I came here
I liked some of the new information learned from a blog “newbie” today, particularly relating to employment and divulging details on achieving cleanliness…
March 3rd, 201210:46 pm
we gots bunnies in our yard lately, quite cute. will make great Hasenpfeffer when they get a bit bigger.
When she mentioned “wildlife”, I thought it might be misleading…
March 3rd, 201210:48 pm
Who could have guessed you know nothing about baseball?
No foxes (not the animal kind anyways )…too built up for their liking.
March 3rd, 201210:49 pm
I try to stay away from the foxes…
March 3rd, 201210:50 pm
VJ, I must have missed that. Unless… are you talking about the person that’s going to Georgia Tech, but took 10 minutes to do the math to figure out she gave the wrong year of her birth?
Nudge, nudge, wink, wink…
Molina is better defensively because in spite of Mac’s contention most every spring that he found workout Jesus, he is as he’s always been..fat.
Offensively there is no comparison between Mac and Molina. Molina is your average lite hitting catcher. While Mac never became the great hitter he looked like his first full season, he does supply some pop in the lineup. It’s hard to believe Mac is worth over 20% of the total payroll but what better choice do we have ?
March 3rd, 201210:51 pm
Yes – works at a night club from 8 pm – 2 am with no alcohol involved…
Robert and Mitchell picked up on it right away VJ, they are quite perceptive
March 3rd, 201210:52 pm
How is that goin’ for you?
March 3rd, 201210:53 pm
lots of fat great catchers in baseball history
March 3rd, 201210:54 pm
Actually, all is going very well…
Hello everyone! Not too bad the game. Minor pitched 2 scoreless innings to start out,and thats what ypu look for.
I try to tell myself that I stay away from the foxes, but the painful truth is that they no longer even give me a glance
March 3rd, 201210:55 pm
I is actually a Sherpa from Nepal
Though not a sherpa, I actually do have a friend who is the editor of an English-language Nepali newspaper–The Himalayan Times. He was one of the judges for the Miss Nepal contest last year (chief judge, I believe), along with a big Bollywood star of the 1990s Manisha Koirala.
Not well anymore….
March 3rd, 201210:56 pm
hey ward, is Samantha an ex girlfriend?
Speaking of the Himalayas, and the correspondent for the Northern Star, I need to get back to finishing The Man Who Would Be King for cab…
March 3rd, 201210:57 pm
nolie will make great Hasenpfeffer when they get a bit bigger.
Aw…you wouldn’t dare!… Bunnies are too cute and fuzzy to be eaten…
That’s kind of a bummer…but at least you won’t have to worry about any rabid ones biting poor Nala…
Too many inside jokes here, we’d better stop. The other posters already think we’re nuts.
March 3rd, 201210:58 pm
no I prolly wouldn’t really have the heart anymore despite all my tough talk McF
March 3rd, 201210:59 pm
that makes them quite perceptive….
Tom – cab has to work hard tonight to catch up to the in-game bloggers today…
March 3rd, 201211:00 pm
You kinda remind me of my one Grandpa in that respect…
Oh, man…I SOOOOO did NOT wanna stay up this late…(past) time for bed, y’all…Night, all!!
March 3rd, 201211:02 pm
Inside jokes abound
I do have a lot of work to do. I may have to pass my crown for a blog…I hear Tomahawkin was gunning for my title
She doesn’t have a chance, VJ. Unless DOB doesn’t have another blog for a few days.
Then again, once she feels challenged…
March 3rd, 201211:03 pm
I never worry about “poor” Nala when it comes to critters- she can handle herself
March 3rd, 201211:04 pm
I actually went to look today at a house for possibly buying. Perhaps surveyed is more accurate. Still wary of buying but drove by a house built in 1860 on the outskirts of Princeton to check it out. Nice locale, but only makes sense, if I change my job.
Must go grab dinner.
March 3rd, 201211:05 pm
T-Hawkin keeps changing his moniker, cabravesfan. Rule #1 to winning the blog posting – Don’t keep changing monikers. Ask nolie.
March 3rd, 201211:07 pm
‘Nite McFann & Moe Berg.
March 3rd, 201211:08 pm
How do you think I’ve ended up #1 overall? I have never changed my name
March 3rd, 201211:12 pm
I could have slipped a few more places, LAdy, but thanks to posters changing their monikers, such as jeffrey & his doo doo, I ended up 6th.
You tried to once, but I stopped you…
March 3rd, 201211:13 pm
I did once…quite a while back. No more. Takes too much effort
March 3rd, 201211:17 pm
That was a big mistake, VJ, a very big mistake. But I’ve learned from it and won’t let it happen again.
I appreciated your guidance, buddy. I just wish I would have listened to you sooner. My stats would have been much better than they are now. That will hurt me when my next contract is due, too.
March 3rd, 201211:19 pm
I used to know the editor of High Times…I wonder if that mag is still being published. BAS would know, prolly.
March 3rd, 201211:23 pm
When all else fails, ken, ask the google thingy.
March 3rd, 201211:24 pm
Nolie, name a fat catcher who was great over a long career . People think of Campanella, Pudge and Fisk as big but they were nowhere near Mac’s bulk. Fisk for instance was 6′3” 200lb while Mac is listed at 6′3” 230 and I’ve seen him at least 20lbs over that. It’s not just size though, Mac looks plain chubby with baby fat.
March 3rd, 201211:26 pm
Tom: good call, might know Snoop Dog would be on the cover. I used to sell the mag in my record store back in the 70’s, but haven’t seen it much since then.
nolie – I’ll be happy to come clear them out for you same rate I always offer you get 1/2 the meat
March 3rd, 201211:27 pm
VJ – I believe samantha intimated she is not involved with the alcohol in the night club not that they didn’t serve it
March 3rd, 201211:28 pm
and those birth years can be confusing can’t they?
I should be getting a call very shortly (someone has to work tonight). Then, I had better head to the kitchen and get something cooking.
If I don’t get back while you’re still here… have a good night & we’ll get them score, tomorrow.
March 3rd, 201211:29 pm
Someone needs to get their eyes checked.
A-Ville Ranger: Walker Cooper and Smokey Burgess, although Smokey was better known as a pure hitter and pinch hitter.
March 3rd, 201211:31 pm
nolie-You don’t like it when people make jokes about you. There is a lot of Braves fans in Montana,and a lot up in the Northwestern area. Georgia,isn’t the only place for Braves fans……I don’t even know who Samantha is?
March 3rd, 201211:32 pm
Until today, I only thought that was an over 80 or a DR thing.
March 3rd, 201211:33 pm
cab – u saying I have a vision problem or just can’t read?
funny stuff mr o’hawke sir
March 3rd, 201211:35 pm
March 3rd, 201211:38 pm
nebody else see the photos of the damage at the paulding county airport or is that something that just interests me?

McCann is AL bound! Red Sox, Texas (if they lose Napolli?), Detroit, Blue Jays, all would be happy to use him as a C and DH. Yankess might also, but they have several C in the minors. But, McCann would allow them to trade those and keep McCann.
March 3rd, 201211:42 pm
ken, Cooper was listed at 6′3” 210lbs. Which is still 20 or more lbs under Mac. Burgess was a Pudge type at around 5′8” 190.
March 3rd, 201211:44 pm
You, I am not sure of…
March 3rd, 201211:45 pm
I think I’ll take that as a compliment
March 3rd, 201211:46 pm
tiger – my point exactly on the implication…
“T-Hawkin keeps changing his moniker, cabravesfan. Rule #1 to winning the blog posting”
Yeah, I need to Settle Down on one…
You should See the Moniker names on the Philly.com Phillies forum…There was one dude who used the moniker name “Smellysac” on that forum before he got Bozo’d
last year didn’t nolie have 2 different names in the top 25?
March 3rd, 201211:48 pm
VJ – so your’e thinking she is a DJ right? thats my guess
Going to call it a night
we can ask her tomorrow no since speculating
March 3rd, 201211:50 pm
March 3rd, 201211:51 pm
come on somebody hit me with a grammatical correction plz
March 3rd, 201211:52 pm
tiger – no, not what I think – don’t think this a new person on the blog…”new personality” perhaps…
March 3rd, 201211:54 pm
awesome part about the blog is we shall never know…DOB might be we will not
March 3rd, 201211:56 pm
it appears everyone else has more important things to do…
goodnight. cyas in the morning.
March 3rd, 201211:57 pm
“Her” exit line today was one I can’t imagine a female actually departing with…
March 3rd, 201211:58 pm
And I will also depart to await the excitement certain to be engendered by the lack of starters playing tomorrow…
March 3rd, 201211:59 pm
First one-hit shut-out of the young season.

“Yunel now is much smoother, you can really see how hard he’s worked to iron it all out. That’s the way he is, a fast-twitch, high-energy guy. He’s just so much easier now for me to handle.”
Kelly Johnson on Yunel. Here’s the rest…
March 4th, 201212:03 am
vj not sure I remember what you were referencing
March 4th, 201212:07 am
A-Ville Ranger: I guess they seemed a lot bigger watching them on TV as a kid and playing with their baseball cards. Cooper seemed very tall and Ol’ Smokey was as fat as Santa, but boy could he hit.
March 4th, 201212:10 am
when its sleepy time down south…
enough of the Yunel stuff please. Yunel never would have straightened it out in Atlanta just like Brett Favre would never have succeeded in Atlanta either. The best thing to happen to Yunel is going to a place like Toronto just as the best thing to happen to Brett Favre was to be sent to Green Bay.
March 4th, 201212:13 am
Saw some of the tornado pictures ,and it looks like a bomb went off,and blew every thing up.My Prayers for you guy’s down South,and Prayers for rebuilding.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
