Still…2 months to get ready (I recall he said that not that long ago). So even if he was signed tomorrow, he would not be available until the end of June. And he wouldn’t come cheap.
April 14th, 20125:02 pm
Mitcell, and Robert both should start thier own denz blog…..They could talk alll they want.
Cab- true on that…..
April 14th, 20125:03 pm
if he doesn’t get healthier and pitch better he prolly ain’t gettin’ traded anywhere except as a possible salary dump with almost nothing coming back. In fact I’m not sure any other team would take on his salary at all

like I said before, our bullpen is on pace to pitch 648 innings, and although I know that won’t happen, it should jar a few heads into realizing how quickly the numbers can get out of hand.
Out starting pitching is the KEY to success. How they roll is how the team follows suit. But yea, our offense is on the ball. Looking forward to seeing the new/old uni’s tonight.

good link Woody
April 14th, 20125:06 pm
have to bookmark that one
April 14th, 20125:07 pm
I wonder if the Braves game will be on locally. got stuck with Miami last night
Made the page go haywire on my end Nolie.
Cab are you saying you dont love me anymore.
April 14th, 20125:08 pm
Do they black out the marlins games in Havana? Or did they reverse that policy recently?
April 14th, 20125:09 pm
Pray for the Tornado vitctims in Norman, Oaklahoma,and through out those regions. Poor people…..
mine came out ok

I want Ugglas tree to fall in my forest.That would be sweet between the cheeks.
April 14th, 20125:10 pm
Did it again. Reduced my screen sizing about half. Weird.
hmmm. now that one didn’t work
April 14th, 20125:11 pm
All, getting ready for the Braves game, and NASCaR tonight. Should be a fun night for sports. Would watch hockey more if the channels would show the games? All, peace my friends……..”Go!!!!!Braves!!!!!”
Back to normal. Prolly the communists.
April 14th, 20125:12 pm
When I hear “on pace”, I keep reminding myself that we’ve only played 7 games. It’s the proverbial small sample size. But, like I said earlier, I worry too.
April 14th, 20125:13 pm
did I say I loved you before?
April 14th, 20125:14 pm
did it give you the data? If so you can likely enlarge the screen in your tool bar
Cab, you didn’t post any poetry, did you?
April 14th, 20125:15 pm
You heart me. That’s all that matters.
April 14th, 20125:16 pm
I ♥ Soph and cab
Of course you did, When you found out what I do for a living.
Oh! good grief! yeesh! checking in to say hi ya’ll, but I will return later once the Uggla love fest is over.
April 14th, 20125:17 pm
It’s messin with the blog screen on my end nolie. The URL snakes all the way across the page into the grey border. Reduces font to microscopic proportions
I heart all of you too.
Except people from Sacramento.
April 14th, 20125:18 pm
thats kinda weird woody prolly the commies like you say.
April 14th, 20125:19 pm
me? poetry? nope. and considering my favorite poem is a rather lengthy 167 year old dark and kinda depressing story about a person driven mad by a bird, I’m not sure any poetry I would post on the blog would be super cheery..
Wookie wants Uggla all to him/her self
April 14th, 20125:20 pm
why would I care what you did for a living?
once upon a midnight dreary….
April 14th, 20125:21 pm
I at least like most of you. A few I love in different ways
Nothing wrong with ogling Uggla. He’s ogle-worthy.
April 14th, 20125:22 pm
while I pondered, weak and weary…
Tiger could I send you money to buy a Doc Holliday jersey, just in case the jinx really works?
April 14th, 20125:23 pm
those first two lines are so much like what I do here at night when onea the idiots posts
April 14th, 20125:24 pm
I was just thinking how appropriate they were to the blog…
Francisco at 3rd? How many E-5’s tonight? I say 2
nolie, not hardly, I’m strictly down with the shemales! fresh back from puking at the mancrush YUCK!
Boston & the Caps all tied up in the 3rd…
April 14th, 20125:25 pm
someone needs to come along and tap enough to distract me from the unbelievable idiocy
April 14th, 20125:26 pm
Francisco may surprise tonite, no E’s and a homer will suffice.
April 14th, 20125:27 pm
Mutts lighting Vance Worley upppp big time!
April 14th, 20125:28 pm
Chipper is available to pinch hit tonight and hopes to be back in the lineup tomorrow….though i’m sure word got to you guys long ago!
Also i stand corrected on something. Braves will wear cream unis tonight, then go back to the home whites with 42s for Jackie Robinson Day tomorrow. But normally they’ll be in the creams for all home Saturday and Sunday games.
You just told me you supported me and loved me and i shouldnt be worried about what other people thought, Obviously you have changed your mind about me. Sorry I bothered you.
April 14th, 20125:29 pm
I kinda like Francisco, too. At least his E’s are throwing errors and they tend to be dramatic. I just hope he doesn’t have the yips.
April 14th, 20125:30 pm
Minor worries me more than Francisco.
you shouldn’t. I didn’t. You aren’t
April 14th, 20125:32 pm
Tyler Flowers just homered for the Pale Hose…nolie prolly the only one here who remembers that nickname.
April 14th, 20125:33 pm
I’m pretty sure nolie was around for the Black Sox scandal
April 14th, 20125:34 pm
Nahhh! Ken, I remember watching the North siders when LaRussa managed them.
April 14th, 20125:35 pm
Them stupid Softball Unis…… then the Astros look with SOX across the chest
So you love me, Cab? <3
I have to give an official blog thank you to Tom O’ Hawke. I was able to get my antenna to catch Peachtree thanks to step by step instructions that he sent me.
Thanks to everyone else that provided info yesterday too. I’m a happy girl.
Hey there, McFann, Soph!
Ron LeFlore! faster than a bullett
April 14th, 20125:36 pm
Thank you Cab. Hi Ken
Well, technically he sent them to me and I sent them to Soph…not that I want any credit or anything…
April 14th, 20125:37 pm
Boston & Washington headed to OT…
April 14th, 20125:38 pm
Is it too early to have a drink?
April 14th, 20125:39 pm
Partial credit to cab for being nice enough to pass along the message.
April 14th, 20125:40 pm
April 14th, 2012
Its 5 o clock somewhere.
Cab — Not really. I’d join you, but it wouldn’t mix well with my meds.
ps. I’ve got some GOOD stuff!
April 14th, 20125:41 pm
nolie was responsible for the Black Sox scandal, that’s why he fled to Florida.
Hi Sissy, going to the game tonight?
Thank you Soph
True, but it may still be a bit early here…
McFann :Ô: :Ô:
April 14th, 20125:43 pm
You could make a fortune selling those…I hear UGA Football players are in the market… (ducks and covers)
April 14th, 20125:45 pm
In 4 years Otis had 186 steals for braves that must be best,I can’t get that link to work what was the answer Woody one Ga Soutern partier to another?
Can’t wait for the game tonight.
Check out Brave Decisions for all analysis Braves! http://wp.me/2lqJ1

April 14th, 20125:47 pm
Am excited for tonight’s game
April 14th, 20125:49 pm
Congratulations to Gonzo on the upcoming birth of his 3rd child, wow, way to go Gonzo and Mrs. Gonzo, won’t miss his bat torturing us for the rest of this series. We’ll see how Juan the Butcher does at 3rd, make me nervous. I see Chipper back tomorrow, hope so although I’d love to see MattE get play somewhere against the lefty but I know you don’t sit Jason so oh well. Go Braves!
No Ken Got to work tonite, but got tickets for tomorrow.
April 14th, 20125:50 pm

The truth is Maddux was already a star when he came to the braves, Mazzone developed Glavine and Smoltz into great pitchers. With his tough workout program he prevented any of them from breaking down. After he left Smoltz and Glavine developed arm problems because they stopped using his workout programs. For fourteen years the braves had no major arm problems, the last six years, major arm problems every year.
There are 5 old time players above the Hammer.
Ha, ha, Cab!! No thanks. I need all the help I can get right now.
April 14th, 20125:57 pm
Yea Woody I saw you talkin to Cricket one night about Knights of Georgia I hit quarter beer night with regularity in 78/79
Thank you for chating everyone, Got to go.. Go Braves. See ya Later
April 14th, 20125:59 pm
cowdogit: Why isn’t Steve Avery in the HOF? Leo did what Bobby told him to do and the players hated him.
Wow. How did u know it was me on the blog? Your name?
April 14th, 20126:01 pm
Ok, B F, I get it. Knights was part of my undoing there!
Francisco is Melky Jr.
if he continues with the errors he will be gone b/4 mid season
his only salvation will come if he starts hitting a lot of HR’s
At Southern people called me junior or tiny
Mugged At Turner
April 14th, 20126:02 pm
Nice to read the story of a couple of women robbed at gunpoint in one of the parking lots about the time the game ended last night. Turner Field is not exactly in the most desirable section of town. All they need is to start having people robbed at gunpoint to drive the ole’ attendance up!

Hey, Carroll. Thanks for the material. You are my favorite writer, with DOB coming in a distant second. He tries, but he just can’t capture the feel of the game as you do (he’s also a little too sensitive sometimes). Keep up the good works!!
April 14th, 20126:08 pm
And as my good friend, the Owl would say, “GO BARVES”. Goodnight Mr. Owl, wherever you are.
April 14th, 20126:10 pm
I hope its another exciting game tonight…last night was like a roller coaster….the fun kind
April 14th, 20126:12 pm

April 14th, 20126:22 pm
I’ll be back a little later. See ya, Cab, McFann, Soph. *waves*
April 14th, 20126:23 pm
Boston/Wash. going to play some more…great game
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
