If the Pirates offered Gerrit Cole, the D-Backs would have to seriously consider it.
If they trade Upton because their ownership is impatient, we'll that's a different matter.
I don't think there's any way Bucs offer that considering how much less they could give up to get Carlos Quentin.
The San Francisco Giants VS The American League
The White Stripes 9/18
Buster Olney suggests that the Braves could build a package around Martin Prado and a couple of pitching prospects to acquire Upton. Which kind of highlights the idea that they want to be able to attain a major league 3B in the deal.
The White Stripes 9/18
mlb extra innings is free from now until July 19th, for those that didn't know
Padres taking two out of three at The Latrine. Feels like the old days.
Cool deal stat boy.
do the chop!
what a disappointing first two games of the braves/giants series. the first: a blowout where the braves looked like they gave up on the game after batting practice. then a great comeback to tie up the game in extra innings only to have it all slip away in another ugly 6-run inning. hopefully tomorrow's/today's day game will turn out differently
yesterday, instead of going to work, everyone went to the baseball stadium for a day game. some people took a big bus to get there from the office, but i drove since i live closer to the park. a few other people drove as well. the bus was late and they arrived in the third inning. i was really excited to go because i was going to get out of work and watch the pitching matchup. by the time the bus got there:
a. everyone who rode the bus was drunk
b. 15 out of 25 people who rode the bus had edibles
they all ended up not sitting in our bleacher seats, but instead staying downstairs and getting hammered. none of them knew anything about baseball, either. they left after the seventh inning, when they stopped serving beer. i stayed for the whole game (with one other person) like the office nerd, but the game was awesome! i have no idea why they picked a baseball game as a team outing when clearly no one in my office likes baseball.
also, 50% of our office is working from home today because they took the bus back to west hollywood and drank all afternoon & night until the bars closed.
I Got it at Ross saved my team from a mostly dreadful day.
first things first... epic comeback from the Braves last night. Biggest one in 25 years and a perfect way to start off a division series. Could be in first place by the end of the weekend.
Now for the reason i came in here..... does anyone on this board live in Atlanta....???
im willing to pay for someone and a friend to go to this game -
August 16 vs. the San Diego Padres - Chipper Jones Bobblehead Night presented by Coca-Cola
I really want this Bobblehead and im super close to just flying to Atlanta since ive never been, and it would be one last chance to see Chipper play. But i figured id try and save some money and ask the favor first.
Please let me know,
edit: BRAVES TAKE GAME ONE OF TODAY'S DBL HEADER...!!!! Only 1.5 back.....
Ben Sheets has turned into a HUGE acquisition.
