Ramblings – May 25, 2008

Well, we lost one today. Am I the only one who feels that this is the last year for Tommy Glavine, Smoltzie, and Greg Maddux? Smoltz looks like his arm has finally had it and he’s breaking down. Glavine is simply unable to locate like he once could, and since he’s the penultimate ”nibbler”, a pitcher who lives on the outside of the plate, he’s dead in the water. Maddux, well, he could probably pitch forever because he’s more intelligent than pretty much every player, but it just feels like the end. And wouldn’t it be great when they all 3 are first ballot guys in 5 years and they all entered the Hall as Braves? 

Does Randy Johnson always seem like he’s lights out against the Braves? In his last 3 games vs. the Braves he’s given up 1 run, and pitched a perfect game.. Not to mention he has the single best phallic-symbol moniker of all-time. 

I also seem to remember Brandon Webb pitching incredibly versus Atlanta last year. This does not bode well for tomorrow, when I’ll be at the game, because Jair Jurrjens run support has been anemic, and facing Webb is going to make this a long day me thinks.  

Anyway, enough of this gibberish. See you tomorrow at the Memorial Day festivities!

Welcome Wagon

In keeping with patrick’s introductory post, here comes another. My name is Luke and I was born a Braves fan, like everyone who would ever come to a blog like this. My parents have been Braves fans since the team came to Atlanta in the 60′s.

As an aside, my least favorite Brave of all-time is Jeff Blauser, that is all. He made Karl Malone look like Reggie Jackson.

Also, a note as an admin, if you call yourself a Braves fan but state that you are not a fan of Chipper Jones, you’ll be perma-banned… ok, I kid, but I’ll be upset.
