    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.

Now how many are we going to end up with at the end of the year? I dont know, and youre right, I wont put a number on it."- Paul Rhoads on having the toughest schedule in the Big 12

    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.
