Well, hello everyone! Some of you like the new comment system and its new features. Some of you hate it. And some of you are just trying to make it work correctly. For those of you that hate it, let me explain why it was done and why it probably aligns with your goals. I’ve … Continue reading “The New Comment System”
I wanted to announce some news: I am stepping down as editor of Braves Journal, and Rob Cope will be taking over, effective immediately. I’ve been largely absent from the site this year, as I just haven’t had the time to give to the site that I should. And Braves Journal deserves an editor who … Continue reading “Please Welcome the New Editor of Braves Journal: Rob Cope”
So, it looks like I’m back to doing recaps full time now. I’m feeling much better, even better than I did before I got sick with pneumonia. Recaps will mostly be of the morning variety and some might be a bit slapdash if I can’t reach my laptop and use the iPad (thanks again) or … Continue reading “Normal, whatever that is”
So it’s my birthday again. For a while there, it wasn’t too clear that I’d make it this far, but so far, so good. Thanks to everybody who’s been there for this past year.

Hopefully, this … Continue reading “So here is what is up with me”

I’m currently zonked out on morphine and percoset, and waiting an X-ray. Let’s just say that I am not currently functioning at 100 percent. Call it Snitker Mode. I also have the manual dexterity of Brooks Conrad playing short, which limits my typing. More later.
Hi, so I’m out of the hospital and in pretty good shape, all things considered. I indeed had a staph infection like Martin Prado’s, in this case MRSA, or “Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus“. That is, a strain resistent to some of the most common antibiotics. I actually was prescribed the correct drug, but (tender imaginations might … Continue reading “Reporting in game thread: June 20, Blue Jays at Braves”
