Lew, what, my butt? But you’re right – some bloggers think they have all the answers when we only know maybe a single layer of what goes on behind the scenes.

“Man, I can’t wait to get back to good ol’ Georgia, so I can head to the Atlanta Braves, this upcoming season. I also gotta head back to a Gwinnett Braves game, since I don’t live too far from them.”

EOF – 2 groundouts and a K…that was quick…
March 18th, 20122:48 pm
Funny stuff from Brian Jordan. Said that inning went so quick in order to get his work in EOF should go back to bullpen to get his work in lol

Wild pitch, Joey to 2nd…
Joet T can just flat out hit. Good bloodline
March 18th, 20122:52 pm
Sorry about that.
March 18th, 20122:54 pm
Sorry – obviously he went to 3rd, where he scores on ground out by Parraz…
March 18th, 20122:55 pm
Excellent play probably took a base hit from Parraz…
Venters up in the bullpen…
March 18th, 20122:56 pm

March 18th, 20122:58 pm
In The ATL, the game is on 680 The Fan. I’ve been working in my yard all weekend and I’m one tired dude. The Walking Dead finale tonight, Southland later this week…Shameless probably ends soon too, but some good shows coming back like Mad Men with the delicious Christina Hendricks.
Durango can’t get to it in center – ground rule double…
March 18th, 20122:59 pm

March 18th, 20123:03 pm
Fly out to right – runner holds at 2nd…Tyler almost got him going back in…
Thanks for the new goods. And Van Morrison is good anytime, especially on Sunday,(still remember and smile when you included another favorite, “Cleaning Windows”, on the blog a while back).
March 18th, 20123:04 pm
Thanks Ken, Forgot about 680
In Parraz’s glove, he loses it – tie game…
March 18th, 20123:05 pm
Groundout to Joey T ends top of the 8th…
March 18th, 20123:06 pm
Hi Samantha, do you know Raquel?
Rob from SC
JV hit a little bit his last 2 outings
Braves OF hopeful Parraz just had a routine fly ball bounce off his glove in RF near corner. Run scores on the E9, it’s 2-2 headed to bottom 8th.
That’s two ugly errors on Parraz in the outfield in three days. Made one in the Friday night game at CF warning track.
Keeping it Real
March 18th, 20123:08 pm
Van Morrison is the greatest singer of all time. Sign him up -:).
March 18th, 20123:09 pm
Boscan grounds out…
March 18th, 20123:11 pm
Raquel..she was on here recently. Thought maybe y’all worked at the same club.
March 18th, 20123:12 pm
Off to my one hour of work for today…

Early in the year, most teams need someone to hold the game between the 4-5 innings of a starter (not yet completely ready to deliver six or seven innings) and the end of the bullpen. I think Medlen is one of our best starters, but he can also fill the early season need to fill the holes and give the team a hold for 3 or 4 innings.
There are also a lot of reliability and youth issues with our starters, but no one with the Braves is going to jinx anyone by discussing them. Medlen is also possible to fill in their as well.
The Braves don’t always talk about their plans but remember that Medlen has delivered in the past, and the Braves know it. They have a valuable asset in Medlen and they will use him.
they will probably want good D out of their last OFer, Parraz ain’t helping himself
March 18th, 20123:14 pm
Dont Know Her. Sorry. Did she claim same profession?
March 18th, 20123:16 pm
The ugly errors will overshadow his work at the plate
March 18th, 20123:20 pm
Speaking of “The Man”, a couple of years back I attended one of his concerts here in Atlanta. Of course, there were musicians scattered about all over the stage–including a large horn section–all cool and setting the mood, passing solos around while waiting for Van to enter. Thing was, he was already there–with sax in hand, blowing a solo–before stepping out of the horn section and up to the mike to sing Moondance, thus completing one of the coolest entrances I’ve ever seen a singer make.
March 18th, 20123:21 pm
Samantha: no she didn’t, She was flirting with noleee and getting him all hot and bothered.
might be what the Yanks had against him
March 18th, 20123:22 pm
she was? oh wow, how can I not remember THAT?
March 18th, 20123:23 pm
Not a big fan of Van Morrison. I appreciate his role in music history, just not my type of music.
Watching the Dropkick Murohys at Febway Park on Palladia right now- if you have HD and get the channel – it’s a good show.
Sorry I missed it.
March 18th, 20123:26 pm
haggard: how are you today? Do you remember when bands like Jethro Tull and Dr. Hook were their own opening acts? They would dress and play totally different music as an opening act, and most people didn’t realize they were they same band as the headliner. I bet the bands got a big kick out of that. Of course Parliment-Funkadelic were the best at that, playing their whole career as two very different bandsr and styles of music, but were actually made up of the same people.
March 18th, 20123:28 pm
noleee: it’s called “getting old” and I feel you pain.
Was Tull ever The Sensational Alex Harvey Band? Saw them open for Tull in Macon and they sucked.
March 18th, 20123:29 pm
Uh-oh, don’t know where that “r” came in “bands”.
March 18th, 20123:30 pm
did Venters get hit hard
I’ll be headed down to Macon this week for grub at the H & H and a look at where the new “pointyball”,(in honor of noleee) stadium is being built there on the old campus. I’ll e-mail pics for you and Kathy. Plus, did you see Widespread Panic’s show on Austin City Limits last night? There name reminds me of the blog at certain times !
March 18th, 20123:31 pm
Apparently not according to Wikipedia – should have known Tull couldn’t be anywhere near that bad.
March 18th, 20123:33 pm
haggard – Thanks. Nope, missed ACL last night. Eat some soul food for me and say hi to the folks at H&H.
March 18th, 20123:34 pm
I like Morrison pretty good, Brown Eyed Girl is a fave
Lew, no, that was a real band and not very good, either. They had a cult following. Sometimes Ian Anderson would open with just himself in disguise and singing in a completely different style. Speaking of Tull, I looked them up recently and they have continually released albums for over 40 years. I haven’t bought one of their albums since the late 70’s, so I wonder how all of those other albums sound? They put out a Christmas album a couple of years ago, that sounds interesting.
March 18th, 20123:35 pm
Hello, blog. Is Heyward just taking a normal rest day?
March 18th, 20123:36 pm
no they cut him….
A Cult Following? Well, Alex apparently died a few years after the show. Must have been the Kool Aid. Maybe he took his cult with him. They had no musical taste anyway.
Here comes the Judge
March 18th, 20123:37 pm
DOB, I’m betting if Meds played for probably 28 other ML teams he would be a lock for the rotation and would be the ACE for some teams. If I were him and they stuck me in the Pen I would request to be traded
Afternoon. And I know what you mean about the yard work as I’ve been doing plenty myself. In fact, I’m journeying to the hardware store in a few to rent a large aerator for tomorrow.
And, yes. I remember seeing Dr. Hook do that very thing during a visit at the old Southeast Music Hall.
Remember the bluegrass stalwarts Hot Rize and their mid-concert act Red Knuckles and the Trailblazers?
March 18th, 20123:38 pm
The stadium down here at mercer coming along rapidly…
Hey noleee !
Hey Ken, When is Noleee Going to come and watch me perform? I thought he liked me.
March 18th, 20123:39 pm
Sounds stupid and maybe I’m just sleep deprived, but them choosing to wear their white regular jerseys during spring could be helping them in the regular season. Get them used to the colors opposed to the blue practices.
Most days are rest days for Heyward…some signs of life though!
Are they building it on the site of the old ROTC field, just behind the library parking lot?
March 18th, 20123:42 pm
phil, we’ll have none of that negativity. We don’t do that here.
March 18th, 20123:43 pm
Samantha, you should ask noleee, he won’t bite (usually), but it’s prolly because he lives in Florida.
I’m not exactly sure how to explain it othernthan just being beyond the OF wall of the baseball stadium and between it and Mercer Univ. drive. Part of it is where some a frame looking apartments once stood. Near old Porter Stadium beside what is now I-75.
March 18th, 20123:44 pm
CTB. Thanks but i’ll say what i please….
Uncle Phil is back.
ken – Email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get details to send you some of the newer stuff – not much really new since 2000, but lots since the 70’s I could burn for you.
They released their first album This Was in 1968 – a blues album with Mick Abrahams (Blodwyn Pig for you old timers) on guitar. Anderson decided they wanted to expand from a blues band and enlisted Martin Barre on guitar. They’ve been on every album together since 1969’s Stand Up, though the other performers have changed through the years.
I saw them twice at the Macon Coliseum – the Thick As A Brick/Aqualung tour and also the War Child Tour where they debuted the song Minstrel in the Gallery.
Got to meet the band in the late 80’s on the Rock Island Tour and Anderson signed a painting, which was auctioned off to benefit the Tampa Children’s Home and then again in 97 on the Roots to Branches Tour. Last time was in 2001 right before we m0ved to Vermont at a classy little venue in Clearwater where they played with no opening act.
March 18th, 20123:46 pm
I didnt know he lived in Florida. Sorry.
haggard: I was at that Dr. Hook show at the Music Hall, what a great venue. Don’t remember Hot Rize, but how about Darryl Rhoades and the Hahavishnu Orchestra…they could play just about anything.
March 18th, 20123:48 pm
One of my Atlanta Roomates did a tour with Dr. Hook. He now owns a recording studio in Nashville.
Why rest Heyward ? He needs at-bats as bad as any Brave does.
March 18th, 20123:49 pm
Where does uncle phil come from?
March 18th, 20123:50 pm
Because heyward is now as injury prone as chipper. A mere wisp of wind, POW, dl for weeks….
March 18th, 20123:51 pm
Mahavishnu Orch, pretty cool. McLaughlin can play some…
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
