You’re welcome, CONservative. (Though I know not exactly for what.)

Jason has huge potential and I certainly hope he comes through this year for the Braves. He could be a major factor in turning this anemic offense around.

Thanks Mark but you know you need to act much more obnoxious and scream your opinion if you ever want ESPN to call. ;)

After a poor 2011, this year has been good for him so far. Will today’s game be delayed? It’s raining here now and it looks like the rain will sustain for a time more.

I’m not much of a screamer, I’m afraid.

In light of the fact that “The knee is the whole basis of who you are [as a player],” what can you tell us about Jason Heyward’s knees?

Those $15 steak sandwiches seem to be selling really well and we was thinking that might slow down the demand for the new deer dogs that will be introduced at the next home stand. If we was John Schuerolz we probably would let them be located on different levels where it would take a long walk to get to either one from the other. We would also charge for ketchup and mustard because everybody’s going to load up the deer dogs to take away the gamey taste.

Let’s see how Jason does moved up in the order. Hitting second with Chipper behind him worked well two years ago.

Mark, the photo is a bit dated. Charming, but dated.

Another good update but please work on the posture. Looking up your nose is so unflattering – lean forward. You’ll look younger.

…….you look younger in your avatar – when you were leaning forward.

hEY bRAVES/tURNER fIELD cREW:

Better tilt one (or two) of your lights up (skyward) so your players won’t lose sight of any more high fly balls. You should have at least one light fixture in each group done this way. Little league and high school stadiums are famous for making this mistake. Surprised you have.

Please Listen – great point about the substandard lighting at Turner Field. A few years ago, I recall an interview with a Braves rep who acknowledged the issue, but felt it might even give the Braves an advantage over the visitors as our players would be used to the low light.

Obviously, he was wrong after witnessing Uggla, Bourn and TP all lose a pop-up behind 2nd base last night.

I thought that deer dogs were part of “Bark in the Park.”

Yea Bradley! Mainly, by not giving a flying rat’s arse about how you look; whether your hair is dyed; that you are wearing nerdy looking glasses, etc, etc. By Gawd, you are a print journalist. And a dang good one at that. There’s no business like show business, baby. I suspect most of your readers are reading to be entertained — not enlightened per se. We’ve already lost Lewis, and Furman, so hope you can carry the torch on in this town…

It’s nice to see Heyward hitting well again.

Whoa! Everybody, don’t be so hard on the Beaver. We was shocked to read all the comments here on the blog about Mark in his video. First, he looks like a print journalist is supposed to look except he doesn’t have any liquid cheese on his shirt. Second, he appears comfortable and looks right into the camera and is polite and respectful. Keeping in mind that the knees have everything to do with who you are (as a journalist) we suspect Mark just needs to work on his knees some and ESPN will come calling.

Every time the Mets scored today, the Braves scored twice that in the bottom of that inning. In one inning, the Braves scored 2 just for drill. Nirvana for number lovers.
