Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I've always been real high on Medlen. He's always been good when he's healthy. He would probably be the #2 guy in the rotation if he hadn't had elbow surgery a couple of years ago. He's also very fast and a decent hitter. I hope they get a couple of more good games out of him.

Busch Stadium looks very nice from the outside. It looks so out of place downtown though. Everything around it is rusted and covered in graffiti and crumbling while this trillion dollar stadium sits in the middle.

It's awesome on the inside as well.

Unfortunately that big development deal fell through. Now they just got this lameass softball field right next to it (where Busch II used to be).

Medlan had great success as a starter prior to injury. We seem to have a time keeping good pitchers off the DL. It's a miracle they have the record they do with Beachy going down and JJ struggling so much. Ben Sheets was a Godsend.

Not a Braves fan here, but I love the high sock look. Looking like a ball player beats the pajama look any day of the week.
I appreciate the player that pulls off the high sock look, but I have no problem with them normally being an exception that stands out (it's often pitchers, for some reason).

I always liked the high-sock look. It just appeals to me because it strikes me as oldschool.

Ironically, the one player that didn't wear his pants up in this game was Tommy Hanson, the Braves starting pitcher. He paid for it by going on the DL after the game so I guess there is that.

Did you watch that mini-series on ESPN called The Bronx is Burning? That show was a pretty cool summary of the Yankees of that era. RIP Thurm.

No, actually I have never seen that. I probably should.

...and my other favorite team, Mets take 2 out of 3 from the Giants.

(I am so going to AT&T Park next year, BTW.)

I am not much of a Yankees fan but I thought the series was great and I suspect you would love it depending on how old of a Yankees fan you are. I have been to Oakland's ballpark but not the new Giants stadium. It looks great on T.V. Dress warmly.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

^ Yeah, I heard about how bad the wind gets during Giants games. Back when they played at Candlestick, fans who lasted a whole game used to get awards!

I am also going to Oakland Coliseum in the same trip, but I'm getting that one out of the way first. For obvious reasons.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

The Rockies are sooooo bad that I am now actually enjoying their amazing incompetence. Last week after the third out they all just stood out there in the field until the umpire had to remind them that the inning was over. One guy not paying attention I can buy, but it was all of them. They're all complete headcases at this point.

Yeah, you can tell when teams are just mailing it in. I watched the Braves steal second last night and the throw had the runner by about a foot with the tag and everything. The umpire called him safe and the second baseman for Florida was like "whatever" and just threw the ball back to the pitcher. No argument or frustration whatsoever.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Being a Marlins fan must be frustrating. They traded for Carlos Lee and then less then 19 days later they started giving everybody away

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I need some good advice on some cheap ways to park my rental car and get to Fenway and Citizens Bank Park. Never been to Boston or Philly so I'm a total n00b.
