The public backlash kept the Braves from using the screaming Indian at batting practice.

I am neither displeased nor surprised to hear this.

^True but I'm not sure why we were linked to the onion. Here is the actual story.

I'm not a big fan of the screaming/laughing Indian logo either. It was proposed but not implemented it sounds like. Just stick to the "A" logo.

Re: MLB Offseason 2012

I think people are really overrating the Orioles and the Tigers. In the Orioles' case, they played completely over their heads -- they aren't going to get a 111 OPS+ out of Nate McLouth again, and they have huge holes, offensively speaking, at 2B and SS. Their rotation and bullpen have huge question marks, too. They're due to regress in a big way this season.

And the Tigers ... well, I've said it before, but they fell completely ass-backwards into the playoffs and needed (and got) a pretty epic collapse on the part of the White Sox in order to make the postseason, and they're going to be trotting out the corpses of Torii Hunter and Victor Martinez on a daily basis. The two-headed monster of Sanchez and Porcello at the back of the rotation is pretty nasty, too. Also, given how huge they are, there's no guarantee that Cabrera or Fielder won't just fall apart at some point (or if they somehow collide, which I think would produce a singularity).

Re: MLB Offseason 2012

I agree with most of breaker's predictions except for the Braves winning the division. I'm excited about adding the Upton's but their careers have been wildly unpredictable. I'm hoping that they will be inspired by the changed of scenery to play to their potential. The Braves have this curse of signing big names that come to Atlanta to completely underperform. McClouth, Uggla, etc. That and for some reason the Nationals give the Braves fits. However, Michael Morse was an absolute Brave killer and I'll be glad to see him in the American League where he can't hurt them.

The New York Mets' highest-paid outfielders this season are Jason Bay and Bobby Bonilla.

Mets.

Note to smartass Houston radio guys: Josh Satin's last name is, in fact, Satin. Not "Satan".
