Just throwing up a new thread to handle any coming sturm und drang re: Coppallellagate. Figure it’s worth it just to segregate the blow back from today’s (assumed) news releases out into their own holding pond. If they get out of this with just losing Maitan, some picks and money, I think we have to … Continue reading “Pivot Day”
Instead, the Braves are doing this: Pixars Brave Snarled In Trademark Battle With Atlanta Braves – CinemaBlend.com. Nice to see that their priorities are in order. Open thread.
Citing “ridiculous” moves, including the trade of two prospects for a centerfielder with a bad back, and the failure to sign Mark Teixeira to a long-term deal “even though he’s willing to talk to that SOB Boras”, Braves President John Schuerholz has fired General Manager Frank Wren and named himself as Interim General Manager, with … Continue reading “BREAKING: Frank Wren fired, John Schuerholz back as GM!”

Loser. Good thing it doesn’t matter. Boyer allowed five baserunners in two innings, but no runs, which … Continue reading “Braves lose, doesn’t matter; tribute video!”
Apparently the site was hacked this morning, which caused some problems. Anyway, that’s why the theme returned to the default. I’ll probably install something new later, I don’t know. Anyway, the long-awaited (two days) sequel to “Mike Hampton Flies a Helicopter”! UPDATE: This is not my day. Give me a few minutes and I’ll have … Continue reading “I blame Hampton”
