My Morning in Exile

A butterfly flaps its wings in South America; a beer truck overturns, losing its precious cargo; Ed McMahon dies. Some may call it chaos. I think that these are directly-related phenomena . . .

  • Clint Hurdle takes Marcellus Wallace’s advice regarding pride.
  • The Braves are no longer America’s team. Well, they never really were, but they’re no longer even pretending that they are.
  • The Diamondbacks are selling pitching.
  • The Phillies are looking to buy some pitching but claim they can’t find any. If only there was a blog they could read that could solve their problems . . .
  • Does this make you happy? If so, it can’t be that bad.
  • Finally, this is what it’s like for Braves’ fans to take the brown acid.

    Might make me happier than John Fogerty playing air guitar on Opening Day.

    Craig I love your site(s) and man you definately are a Braves fan.  I am exactly like you in that I grew up watching the Braves on TBS so they became my team.  I read your stuff all the time and this is my first time posting so I want to make 1 request and I will never ask for anything from you ever again: Please, for my sanity, DO NOT EVER BRING UP THE 1996 WORLD SERIES AGAIN.

    Even a .400 hitter lets some get by him, Blaze.

    Psst…in your Braves-Yankees column, “shuttering” should be “shuddering.”

    Thanks Badger. I’ll go fix it.

    He’s not Erik Bedard or Jake Peavy, but why doesn’t Amaro give Andy MacPhail a call about Jeremy Guthrie? He’s had a rough year but I think his stuff plays up in the NL and the O’s are certainly not in contention. It’s probably because I’m from Baltimore but I think Guthrie makes a ton of sense for the Phils.

    Wow, Craig, HOT ROD sure is a fun guy.  I’ll be sure to ignore him in the future.

    Ain’t he though?  I’m actually surprised that there aren’t more like him. I mean, there are lots of people operating with lower cranial capacities over there, but that’s God and nature’s fault. As far as I can tell, Hot Rod is the only malignant jackass among commenters.
