Yeah, they held the starting staff together last season with twine and chicken wire.  Fried was out a ton, while Kyle Wright basically missed the whole season.  It was a new arm up from Gwinnett every week.

Elder and the AAA dude that started a few days ago vs Houston may be the chicken wire until they can sign a SP replacement for Strider. So far so good. Thank goodness the meat of the lineup is doing what they do. Ozuna having one of his "one off" crazy years at the plate.

Not a lot of posting going on, especially from me, since I can no longer get the Braves after going with the You-Toobs.  I ain't buyin' no package either.  I switched to cut down on the bill, and I'm not going to start adding back.  I see enough highlights to wet my whistle.  Early returns:

AL East

Yank Me's: 19-10
Orioles: 17-10
Red Stockings: 16-13

AL Central

Indians: 19-9
Royals: 17-12
Unbelievably, the Astros are 9-19

AL West

Who cares? 

NL East

Braves: 19-7
Ponies: 19-10
Metropolitans: 14-13
The Marlins are a shittastic 6-23

NL Central

Beer Makers: 17-10
Baby Bears: 17-11
Red Birds: 13-15

NL West

The Fighting Show Hey Ohtummies: 18-12
Everybody else is under .500

I imagine the Dodgers will wind up running away with that division in the long run.

My doctor told me I needed to stop masturbating.  I asked him why, and he said, "because I'm trying to examine you."

A couple of observations.

Cubs and Cards hanging out around the .500 mark a little over 50 games in.  Braves sitting at 10 games over, but well behind the Phillies, who have gotten off to a scorching start.  Ronald Acuna Jr is gone for the season with his second ACL injury.  Already lost Spenser Strider for a year or two.

Ben Brown for the Cubs has downright filthy stuff.  He threw 7 innings of no hit ball last night, and I watched some of his outing against the Braves.  Just about unhittable.  Dud is 6'6".

In case you haven't noticed, and judging by the attendance you haven't, the Cardinals have managed to win a few here and there, and are threatening to climb out of the cellar.

I didn't even have a clue what the standings were until I checked earlier today.  I've never been so apathetic about a season in my life.  And now that Acuna is out, I'm checking out even more.

I know that a 2 weeks ago, we wanted to go to a game, and I got 5th row, on the first base side, next to the foul pole, and they were 18 each on stubhub.  The amount of people not at the game was staggering for a Saturday afternoon Cards game in May.  I think apathy has set in, because I didn't even know they had gotten back to .500 until someone told me last night.

Hey Fairweather,
Check this out:
Braves in May...

2024 12-14
2023 15-14
2022 13-15
2021 13-12

Know you realize that the Braves are struggling with injury and lack of run production but with a few additions between now and the break they will eventually make a run at the Phillies.
Until then, it's all about winning the next series of which Oakland is next.

Fairweather?  WTF you talkin bout?  I was listening to the Braves on radio at age 8.  Been to countless games as far back as Turner Field.  Just apathetic because I can’t watch them at all.

It's just that I'm back to square one following the Braves much like you because of viewer restrictions driven by greed in the form of extortion.


Cable tv became an absolute godsend back in the day. Prior to that baseball fans in Alabama could only view a regular season game on a Saturday thanks to NBC.

I only knew the Braves through radio waves throughout the sixties and seventies. And it was not until the summer of '82 while working in Atlanta that I was able to attend a good many games.


The misdirected fairweather jab was in reply to the current season of misfortune and slight struggle along with the sheer volume of trade suggestions I read daily (by the uninitiated) as if the Braves only came into existence (with the new maffs) when they themselves discovered the game.


There... I'm a baseball snob.
