to all those Penn fans of what Joe Pa was really about.
Sorry Anders, it’s probably a typo but as a grad of the University of Pennsylvania, I take offense
July 12th, 20126:10 pm
I dont hate the Pastor. I just know he’s, by far, the worst defensive SS Ive ever seen.
July 12th, 20126:12 pm
Pre hate is a joke from yesterday.
We’ve been without baseball for days now. We have…
July 12th, 20126:15 pm
never saw Andres Thomas or Rafy Ramirez, huh?
July 12th, 20126:16 pm
right now I am glad that the rumor of Penn State coming to the ACC was just that a rumor
July 12th, 20126:17 pm
Why did we ever get rid of Pepe Frias?
yeah, having the Criminoles is enuff…..
July 12th, 20126:18 pm
Or Rod Gilbreath.
July 12th, 20126:20 pm
Looks like Fredi is leaning on starting Wilson according to some other sites.
Bozo ( The Clown )
July 12th, 20126:23 pm
could people explain in details what constitutes the school “death penalty” , i’m curious to know what the penalties are… on a side note, the franchise last night was supremely entertaining, especially the opening segment.. this is gonna be a great series, they picked the perfect team to look after… although this is the 2nd time they are following ozzie, still entertaining
which is why all that crap about getting rid of Wilson was doodoo . they are likely to chose D over O at short
July 12th, 20126:24 pm
Damn. Long month coming up.
Our middle infield could go 2-200 over the next 4 weeks…
I though it was a show about a buncha Bozos
July 12th, 20126:26 pm
Trader Jack – No offense intended. Of course I was talking about Penn State fans.
July 12th, 20126:27 pm
SMU was the big one, right after the era of Dickerson.
yeah but nolie, you can get better defense than Wilson with a better bat for peanuts
July 12th, 20126:29 pm
you can get better defense than Wilson with a better bat for peanuts
Unfortunately you cant from our in-house options and the second wild card spot has fewer teams selling.
July 12th, 20126:31 pm
Then all current and subsequent draftees should refuse to join the MLBPA upon receiving a major league contract, since it was their possibly-future brethren who gave the clubs that power.
The safest course is to do nothing against one’s conscience. With this secret, we can enjoy life and have no fear from Boras.
There are options, and reasonable options. My biggest beef is the selling off of Drew Sutton….
But there are plenty of bench SS’s that can hit better than Wilson. and field better than his now, league avg defense
July 12th, 20126:32 pm
Most, especially the owner and his dip of a son-in-law, acted like bozo’s.
The only “real” parts were Ozzie’s remorse for his comments about Fidel and you had to feel bad for Gaby. Plus, Heath Bell seems like a stand-up guy.
July 12th, 20126:34 pm
and a lot of guys who would fit signed two or three year deals last winter(causeing the Braves to pass on them then) so the Braves are not going that route at this point most likely. when you get to that low level there is no guarantee that one guy will outhit another anyway. Wilson could pick it up a bit and some pickup could tank.
July 12th, 20126:36 pm
A moment of silence for… Rod Beck.
July 12th, 20126:40 pm
many reasons these trades will never happen – monetary, trade package, etc., but I would love to see the Braves trade:
Teheran, Gattis, and Ahmed for Lester and Bard
Prado, Salcedo, and Northcraft for Upton
I will stick to that until after dinner then I will return to reality
July 12th, 20126:41 pm
•Look for Jack Wilson to start at SS Friday for #Braves. Team won’t make roster move until tomorrow. Still looking around, said Gonzalez. 44 mins ago
Braves must feel good about Andrelton being ready to return in 4 weeks.
July 12th, 2012
No problem Anders. I’ve been having to bear that my entire adult life – LOL
July 12th, 20126:47 pm
Such a clickish place it is here. When the nerds get going on something and you aren’t close to their thinking, they will scroll by your post quicker than McCann goes by a Subway restaurant. Tellin’ ya. Those damn nerds.
Sheets on Sunday.
My guess? Minor to AAA to “work on things.”
July 12th, 20126:48 pm
I’ve been having to bear that my entire adult life.
Obviously, The Wharton School needs to join the SEC. : )
“they will scroll by your post quicker than McCann goes by a Subway restaurant.”
that’s um, not that quick…
July 12th, 20126:49 pm
Bet the DBacks would eat that deal up, but it would suck for the Braves. They aren’t trading a .321, .383, .839 OPS player for someone who won’t hit for the same power in Atlanta and makes twice as much.
Oh ,I didn’t expect them to make a deal for a SS, just kinda hoped they would……
Olney sure opened up a can of worms with his Upton suggestion eh?
and did you hear the latest bunch of nonsense? Former Nats GM Jim Bowden suggested the Braves should make a trade for Justin Upton involving a package based around, get this, HEYWARD!!!
I wish he was STILL GM for the Nats, what a stupid idea
July 12th, 20126:52 pm
Look for Jack Wilson to start at SS Friday for #Braves. Team won’t make roster move until tomorrow. Still looking around, said Gonzalez
Interesting. Obviously, they have seen all they want to out of Pastornicky as a SS.
July 12th, 20126:53 pm
Most nerds also have zero personality or sense of humor, unless you’re talking “nerd sense of humor”.
July 12th, 20126:54 pm
you have to hope for the sake of the future gene pool that much of what is said here is in jest…..
July 12th, 20126:55 pm
I believe it’s spelled cliqueish
July 12th, 20126:56 pm
Sheets starting Sunday and he sounds like CTB…got a big good ‘ol boy Southern accent.
nerd sense of humor
Humor involving 2 and 3 syllable words a bit much for you?
Figured it would be Wilson tomorrow with Hudson pitching.
that quick flip to Uggla is haunting the Pastor
count, Mac doesn’t eat fresh and healthy.lol
Danga, thought the same thing.Pastornicky has worn out his welcome with that little league defense and wild arm. Sorry, truth is the truth.
July 12th, 20126:57 pm
“count, Mac doesn’t eat fresh and healthy.lol”
that’s the marketing
inside they have delights like bolgna and double meat and…
July 12th, 20126:59 pm
Wharton School? Isn’t that where…
I’d sue Penn State for that alone.
July 12th, 20127:01 pm
Bunch of nerds. I stirred the nerd pot. Baseball blog and some have to obsess over stats and other garbage even DOB has ripped on them for. Obsessing over this stuff. Like go scrub your retainers or polish your Luke Skywalker toys.
July 12th, 20127:02 pm
I can only assume Okalahoma Joes and the ilk are better than anything we have ’round these parts. Care to share what you learned?
I’m a Carolina Low Country fan myself (pork, red pepper vinegar). I don’t rekon you had any pork this week?
July 12th, 20127:04 pm
sounds like you are dealing with some personal intellectual underdevelopment issues……….
Call us nerds all ya want, but I played the game, play rock and roll for a living these days(sold my bar) and I STILL love stats
July 12th, 20127:07 pm
Who’s going down to AAA, Delgado or Minor?
Place your bets
In my nerd voice:
“You jerk! You are just a big jock who doesn’t understand the value of stat importance to America’s pastime. People like you are why the unemployment rate is soooooo high. If we want to obsess over the metrics side of baseball, then HOLY COW, we will do it! We will stick our fingers in our ears when you talk and shade our eyes of your ignorant posts. You’re too simple for me. Woman? What is that?”
July 12th, 20127:08 pm
vinegar BBQ is a sin against nature….
He has more identifiable things to work on and needs a slap of the humble stick anyhow.
I’m leaning towards Minor.
July 12th, 20127:09 pm
NickB, you obsess over stats? No you don’t. I am talking the 24/7 stat geeks. Actually they’re creepy. Not normal at all.
“vinegar BBQ is a sin against nature….”
says the guy who thinks Hamburger Helper should get it’s own channel
July 12th, 20127:10 pm
say what? you just insulted me beyond belief. That was CTB with the HH. pay attention dude…
July 12th, 20127:11 pm
“say what? you just insulted me beyond belief. That was CTB with the HH. pay attention dude…”
he cooked it, you praised it
don’t be so literal, it sucks the fun out, ya know?
What’s up with that, I thought you didn’t care for BBQ?
You did not Add trade Either.
July 12th, 20127:12 pm
Wow…our Olympic outfits and accessories “Made in China”. What a pizz poor decision by somebody!
July 12th, 20127:14 pm
He’s a contrarian. The BBQ is not the point.
July 12th, 20127:17 pm
I did not praise it. if you are gonna banter with a guy, insults based on facts are much more effective, they leave no out
I don’t much Bat, but I really don’t care for that sour ol vinegar stuff. I mean vinegar is what they use to treat a yeast infection
July 12th, 20127:19 pm
it wasn’t even an insult
you need a nap…
July 12th, 20127:20 pm
July 12th, 2012
Yep MBA from the Wharton School and no I would not sue Penn State, which is a very decent state university
July 12th, 20127:21 pm
of course it was an insult, not one to be taken seriously, butcertainly bantering. you should leave your defensiveness with your other blog names…..
July 12th, 20127:22 pm
No other blog names. None. Never.
July 12th, 20127:23 pm
“Yep MBA from the Wharton School and no I would not sue Penn State, which is a very decent state university”
Great school. Shame you have to put up with this stigma. Forever.
July 12th, 20127:25 pm
yeah right count
July 12th, 20127:28 pm
Funny you think think that.
I’d love to know which “other” names you “know” are mine. lol
No doubt the cooking show comment was a jab
July 12th, 20127:30 pm
July 12th, 2012
Really has no bearing. My resume allowed me to move in areas that few in Penn State could only dream about
the same ones who use the same insults and phrases and talk about the same stuff and deny ever having other names. You need a better memory to play that game
but hey, whatever you say….all just a big coincidence
July 12th, 20127:34 pm
are the Braves ever gonna play another game this season? years ago it used to be that most games started back up on Thursday, that was bad enuff, but this sukks
You got nothin’ on me old goat. Tell you what…
If you can prove it I’ll give you $100. If you’re wrong, you only owe me an apology.
My posts are not showing up.
July 12th, 20127:35 pm
that one did
July 12th, 20127:40 pm
I’d like to see Varvaro or Avilan go down to Gwin. and have Delgado go to the bullpen. With Venters out, an arm like Delgado’s would be very useful in the eighth. Minor has to develop consistency, which he will only get with starts. In reality, since Delgado is a legit starter, he needs to go to Gwin. for more seasoning, but he is back next year in my book.
Zero for three tries. Is “rattfink” a bad word?
July 12th, 20127:41 pm
How about Paterno, Penn State and Todd Blackledge? Anything wrong with them?
July 12th, 20127:42 pm
Damn do they really need a full week off? Hell they get 4 months off here soon enough.
I just need some baseball so I can bitch about something other than nerds.
get real count. that has been played b4 too, except for the amount of the bet.
like I said you need a different attitude and some new dialog.
I mean its not even just the second or third time that you and I have had this same exchange.
whatever you say though….
July 12th, 20127:43 pm
On the Braves’ home page, a stupidly grinning Frank Wren is pondering how to best destroy this franchise. Hey Frank, do us all a favor and don’t trade for anything. The best you can hope for is that Sheets is a steady and competent #4 or #5. With Hudson, JJ, Hanson, and Minor, I am willing to stand pat. I would NOT trade ANY of our young arms for anyone right now – unless someone was willing to trade a LF with 3-4 arb years left who can RAKE…
And I don’t see that happening.
July 12th, 20127:44 pm
Fu** off nerd!
Don’t know … I’m bored. NEEEEEEEEEEEERD!
I got it: you can’t use the word h-a-t-e. Even in the context of college football rivalries.
Steve from OH
July 12th, 20127:46 pm
I think Wren has done as good as he can do with what he’s got. My only knock on him has been our recent drafts, particularly the Gilmartin pick, and leaving Mike Trout on the board.
Of course, everyone was projecting Trout as a 20-30 range pick at the time, so hindsight is 20/20 I guess…
No baseball tonight are bad words
July 12th, 20127:47 pm
Smilin’ Frank is his name…
“Hamburger Helper … makes a great fight”
Seriously. Prove it or drop it.
I use one name. Period.
July 12th, 20127:48 pm
““Hamburger Helper … makes a great fight””
Please tell me you did not put vinegar on the HH?
July 12th, 20127:49 pm
Wider if the braves wii resume their interest in Nunez of the NYY
July 12th, 20127:53 pm
I would trade minor with a few B prospects for Lester. Greinke is the only other one on the market that interests me and with all the other teams lining up for him, the only way we get him is if greinke tells everybody that he wants to go to the braves and that he is going to sign with the braves in the offseason. Even then we would have to agree to an extension below market value. Not happening
July 12th, 20127:54 pm
With Huddy’s foot and back miseries, I don’t know if we see him next year (is it a club or player option?). With that, JJ (hopefully) being traded, and all the young arms poised, next year’s rotation would be a nice mix of young and rookie by July:
Hanson, Beachy, Minor, Delgado, and Medlen/Teheran/Vizcaino/Gilmartin. Who knows? Sheets might be Comeback POTY and re-sign with us at a hometown discount.
Scranton, PA…….just about broke, financial hardship……..JoePa, a lost tarnished relic….what’s next? The Amish are leaving to pursue celebrity in LA? Poor and sad days in Pennsylvania.
Sheeeyat … salt and pepper is all you need as your ingredients for Hh. Now if you want a kick you can throw a pinch or two of paprika spice on there.
July 12th, 20127:55 pm
seriously? you think I’m gonna drop it? the more you respond the more you use the same stuff you have used b4. need to work on some memory exercises.;)
If the braves are worried about delgados innings adding up he could be moved to the bullpen
Greinke is one year older than Maddux was and has said he likes the Braves and obviously is not the type to dig NY or LA type cities.
It would be a nice thing if could happen, esp since sounds like Wren would not do it if he did not think he could sign him.
July 12th, 20127:56 pm
count, what other names are you on here? Hopefully somebody interesting and way different than “count_schemula”?
July 12th, 20127:58 pm
its a team option with a cheap buyout MBBF
my other name is Anders, lol
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
