You're right! That is SI as its finest.....
Posted Tuesday September 10, 2013, About: Longest HR of the season travels nearly 500 feet
He is versatile that way. Can also play a little 1st base.

But I HOPE that McCann gives the Braves a home town discount and stays with them.

However, I don't want them to sign him to an un-holy team killer of a contract that does not allow for them to continue building. They have Bethancourt and Gattis currently on the 40 man; Freddie might try that combo thru the rest of the season to see how it works.

Except the Braves....they can barely maintain a .500 average on the road....they are killer with home cooking.................

Did you guys not notice this was under the NCAAB header?
Posted Thursday August 22, 2013, About: Gonzalez still seething over 'ridiculous' hit
I stated to those that would listen that the new rules would force defenders to start going lower and lower. ALL the rules changes have gone to make the league a wide open passing offense and defenses are put in dire straits to stop them. Pretty soon we are going to put flags on thier hips and it will be illegal to hit at all.

Posted Friday July 26, 2013, About: Hudson injury leaves Braves scrambling for pitching
Unless of course you consider that his last 10 starts the he won 7 and his era for those 10 was under 3.
Posted Tuesday July 16, 2013, About: Kershaw snubbed?: 'It hurts'
So true. When you are only given snippets from a full conversation, the author has a tendency to score you one way or another given their own perspective of a player'
Posted Wednesday July 10, 2013, About: Puig disrespects Diamondbacks legend
which market are you talking? Gonzo played for like 5 different teams. He spent 19 years at the pro level and is from Cuba as well. He is a hero to most of the ball players in Cuba, I guess Puig did not get the email....
Posted Monday July 01, 2013, About: Is Chipper Jones second only to Hank Aaron?
I think the author did exactly what he intended to do...create all this stir about nothing. A player was either a Brave or Not...does not matter the town.

So, you get a kid that is too stupid for the mentoring to take, and it is the Coach's fault?
Posted Friday May 17, 2013, About: Dwight Freeney leaves San Diego without contract
What's the chances the Steelers can suade him to Pittsburgh?
Posted Tuesday May 07, 2013, About: McCann's days in Atlanta numbered
Actually, last year was Brian's only "off" year. 2010 and 2011 were both very good.
Posted Tuesday April 02, 2013, About: 49ers trade for McCoy
You and me both..........
Posted Tuesday April 02, 2013, About: 49ers trade for McCoy
That's about right; he got the hell beat out of him in that Black and Blue and Purple division, then gets shipped off without as much as a hug.................
Posted Wednesday February 27, 2013, About: Red-hot Harper already grumbling about playing time
You are correct....I call it Sensationalism.

SI has become SE...........Sports Exaggerated.............
Posted Wednesday February 27, 2013, About: Red-hot Harper already grumbling about playing time
This is true. However he is a punk as well.
Posted Wednesday February 20, 2013, About: Braves may break franchise K record ... again
It is absolutely repulsive. How can I or any other little league coach teach batting fundamentals and make them stick when kids watch as their favorite "superstar / all-star" swings for the fences every at bat and K's more than contacts?
Posted Wednesday February 20, 2013, About: Braves may break franchise K record ... again
I for one HATE all the strikeouts in the league.

Do you guys realize that over 100 players struckout more than 100 times last season.

The leader of K's has been over 200 for the past 4 or 5 seasons.
