    Watched the Braves beat the Cubs at 3-Bag tonight...

    Just got back from 3-Bag (CF sponsor) in West Des Moines. A ton of Cubs fans were in attendance. I of course was rocking my Braves hat.

    Not rubbing it in or anything, but I have to post this.

    Chipper Jones just might be my favorite professional athlete of all-time. He makes me feel old. I actually remember his rookie season in Atlanta.

    That bomb that he hit tonight made me feel so good.

    I understand. There is a lot of baseball yet to be played. But with Heyward's shot on Monday and Chipper's tonight, I am really excited about this season.

    watching the braves win and cubs lose in the same game is basically what heaven is going to feel like. similar to cyclones over huskers.

    I believe there is a game thread this could have been posted it.

    Not sure it needed it's own thread.

    I wouldn't get to excited from home runs off the Cubs pitching staff...

    I cheer for Chipper in every game but 6. This just so happened to be one of those 6 for me.

    I suppose I should pay attention to the Cubs now because as of May 15th they will be out of the race. I am 33, will the Cubs even get to a World Series in my life?

    Their bullpen isn't very good but once Lilly gets back they should have a very solid rotation. Randy Wells is one of the best #4 SP's in the majors...

    <--- My namesake...

    And the speed of the ball off of Heyward's bat is insane. Both with the HR and the double tonight. I read a stat that the calculated speed of Monday's home run would have been the second fastest in all of last season...

    if they couldn't do it vs the Marlins a few yrs back, at home, needing one win, with wood and prior, i doubt it.

    Is he really a #4 if he is your second best option?

    Relief pitching, and relief pitching is, and always has been a crapshoot. Even teams like the Yankees aren't sure what they have coming out of the bullpen night in and night, with Rivera being the exception.

    Dempster was fine tonight.
