Taking some time, back in a few days

We're closed for business until Sunday.

Hello, everybody. I’ll make this quick.

I need to leave town for a few days for a family situation, so there won’t be any new blogs posted online Thursday though Saturday. I should be back in time to post one or two things Sunday, including a column pointing to the start of the Braves’ home stand next week.

Let me also take this opportunity to thank you for the way you’ve responded to our new practice of having Mark Bradley and I post at least three blogs per day, Monday through Friday. Record page views indicate you like the change and we appreciate the response. Whether you agree with the opinion or not, it’s all about the passion, and you’ve go it.

Thanks again, Jeff.

Hope everything’s okay. The extra time and output from you and Mr. Bradley have not gone unnoticed and are very much appreciated. Look forward to seeing you back, but we all know family comes first.

God, I’m going to miss you Jeff…
You’re like my daily dump.

Safe trip. Is this why there was all this sudden flurry of blogs?

Good luck. Hope all goes well.

Hope all is okay….

If so, then take the time to learn about NBA basketball while you’re gone. Then maybe you wont say dumb sh*t like that we need to acquire Rafer Alston. When you post things like this, I wonder how you don’t have permanent time off.

PATHETIC. Learn the game or let someone else write on it.

Sending good wishes your way Jeff. Maybe the Hot Phone Sex Princess will donate a little time when the dust settles for you.

The blogs are awesome – keep them coming.

“Mark Bradley and me,” not “Mark Bradley and I.”

You’ll be missed, Jeff. Especially by the people who love to hate you like JSS. Haha.

Seriously though, hope everything’s okay with your family, and if it’s not, my prayers are with you.

More Schultz and Bradley is the best move the AJC has made in ten years. Take care Jeff.

No need to hurry back, Jeff. Maybe the AJC can actually replace your blogs with something that comes close to appearing newworthy and interesting… but I doubt it..

Assuming the situation isn’t so important as to make this column meaningless to you … you might want to revisit that column you wrote about Tommy Hanson being a “bust” in his first start. He’s won his last two and in dominating terms his last one.

Perhaps you might think about taking that ax of your’s out of the young man’s back and start admitting the Braves made a good move bringing him up vice Glavine!

BTW: Haven’t heard any more talk about Glavine’s grievance. Might it be that Hanson’s performance on the mound has had a lot to do with that?

I wish you all the best with your gender reassignment surgery.

I hope all goes well and that you have a speedy recovery.

You’re funny, and sometimes out of your mind with your opinions, but this new “3 blogs a day” thing has really helped get me through a boring workday or two.

Why does this sound like I’m signing your yearbook?

Good luck, Jeff.

Looking forward to your return.

Hope everything’s alright, Jeff. You’ve always been one of my favorites. See you when you get back.

Nothing is worse in this world than being SMARMY; and there’s way too much of it in this country… I hope that the other people in your family are well and that good fortune shines on them… As far as for Jeff Schultz, there’s no wrath in the whole entire universe that should not fall on his shoulders… Lot of bad dunka, karma-phala works both way… He knows where to reach me…

2 days without Jeff Schultz’s blog, and the world is still standing. Amazing. Now… let’s try to go 2 years without his blog.. Just a wild hunch but I’m guessing the world will still be able to survive..

And for the grammar nazis on all blogs…. this is not Miss Crabapple’s 9th grade english class. It’s an f’n blog. Typos are welcome. Get a life

Ken, I noticed that too. My wife (who is not a sports fan) even asked, “what happened to all the hoopla about this jerk?” I responded with, “he found out how little 1/2 the people in Atlanta care about him and T. Hansen shut up the other 1/2.”

Jeff, don’t know what the trouble is. But, when you get back, call me and I’ll do everything I can to help make things better, OK? And, I mean everything. Xxxoxxxoxxxo, sweetie

“english” should be capitalized.

Unbelievable. Someone actually went to the trouble of stealing the handle Jeff gave me? Fine. You can have it. He and I (or me and him, or him and me, or Jeff and me) will come up with a suitable replacement. You dope.

You used a period, but you didn’t capitalize the first word.

See you in detention.
