Then we are from the same area. My younger brother was high school teammates with Justin Upton at Great Bridge High School. B.J. went to Greenbrier Christian, both schools in Chesapeake.
Nice!

There was quite a crop of baseball players that made it to the MLB from this area.

David Wright, Zimmerman, the Uptons, and the first one was
Michael Cuddyer.

My son played for Tallwood High School.
I was living in Chesapeake during my freshman year of high school. Went to Deep Creek that year. Don't think there were any famous baseball players in my class, but I did go to school with DeAngelo Hall (NFL cornerback).

The whole Hampton Roads region seems to be a good source of skilled athletes.
It sure does.

Alonzo Mourning, Bruce Smith, Alan Iverson....

Dusty Baker says he wants to manage again.

Somewhere, Mark Prior's elbow just twitched uncontrollably, and he doesn't know why.

Braves lock up Julio Teheran for 6 years at 32.4 million. Club option for a seventh year included. Not bad. Can't wait till Uggla comes off the books in a couple years. The B.J. Upton deal is going to give me an ulcer though. I can't believe I'm going to have to endure that shit for more than half a decade.
I was at the Clubhouse store yesterday and the entire clearance rack was all BJ Upton stuff deeply discounted. For a minute I thought they had got rid of him.

Re: MLB Offseason 2013-2014

The Braves have now locked up Kimbrel for 4 years at 42 million. Sigh, I don't know. I've never been a big fan of paying a lot for a closer but he is one of the premier closers in the game. He is going to perform but I wonder if this is going to interfere with securing guys like Simmons and Minor down the road.

I think Simba will be going to another team when his time is up. The Braves are like Hartsfield-Jackson, players are just here as a layover until a better offer comes around.

I don't know, they've gone nuts securing contracts for the young guns this offseason. Simmons can not be allowed to leave. Minor either.

Homer Bailey agreed to a $105 million contract extension with the Reds. Some of the baseball greats from not that long ago were born too early with all these generational wealth contracts for average to above average players these days.

Re: MLB Offseason 2013-2014

hoping that's essentially the template that Jon Lester ends up coming to with the Red Sox, in the area of the numbers tossed around. As big as that deal is, it still helps by bringing the eye level down from some of the more monster contracts that were signed this offseason

So the Phillies turned in their draft picks who didn't sign to the NCAA.

What a fucking terrible organization. Get fucked, Ruben Amaro Jr.

Yeah, read that this morning and at first couldn't believe it. However I guess after what MLB has done to ARod, everything is now plausible.

It's just such an insanely scummy move. The Phillies are pissed that these kids didn't sign, so they ratted them out to the NCAA, ensuring they lose their remaining eligibility. Jesus Christ, Amaro.
