There's a Yicketty Yogurt at Turner Field now... along with Holeman & Finch burgers, which are supposed to be the best in Atlanta. I didn't want to wait in line for 2 hours to try one though. Maybe next time.

On a completely unrelated note... if you like American Pest's facebook page and join their e-mail list, you get two free Nats tickets.
Did the Holeman and Finch burgers replace the McCann's Burgers Stand? And Is that Steak Sandwich Stand that was on the Terrace Level still there?
McCann's just moved. Not sure about the steak sandwich place.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

I was wondering this the other day, if there were a movie based on Berry Zito's journey from ace pitcher, to huge contract bust, to redemption in the last few years, who would play Zito. The first one to come to mind was Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

On a serious note, what Zito is doing right now is making me really feel happy for him. For all the crap that he took (And sometimes deservedly so, to have the Giants go 16-0 when he pitches and to hear that crowd roar when he was coming back to the dugout is such a great story.

Of course the cynical side to the argument was that this is a contract year, but he was doing this last year and in major games like the games in the NLCS and the World Series (I think it was Game 4 in the NLCS and Game 1 of the World Series).

Yeah, I had to content myself last night with laughing my ass off as Boston's bullpen took a wet, runny shit all over the field.

It was only Hanrahan who blew up. The rest of the bullpen was solid.

So, Grinke breaks his collarbone after Carlos Quentin charges the mound after being hit by a pitch. On purpose? 3-2 count in a 1-run game, so obviously not. Quentin then goes into a "check out our history" rant as to why he charged the mound. Uh, Grinke has hit him 3 times in his career, last time in 2009. Not seeing the pattern there. Idiot...

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Hitters have their heads up their asses with this "show me some respect" attitude. Even if Greinke had thrown at Quentin intentionally, which he obviously didn't, charging the mound is just being damned childish.

Bob Gibson was here in Omaha just recently when his statue at Werner Park was dedicated. I'm just going to hazard a guess nobody ever charged the mound against him...

I watched it this morning and everything seemed to go so innocently until that hit by pitch. I don't know the history between the two of them, but man did Quentin seem to overreact on that one. That whole thing just seemed so random and unnecessary.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

^ The thing where Jason Marquis threw at Matt Kemp's head in the first inning may also have played into it, since Kemp also was really agitating things in the later brawl...

I didn't see that. I heard something was up with Kemp and Scully mentioned it briefly during the fight but I didn't know the whole story behind it.
