    Finally!

    Matt Adams really delivered today! Grandslam & the go ahead homer in the 12th. I'm still not convinced Jim Johnson is on his game but he got the save. Really need to close out the series tomorrow.

      Evgenie Malkin really put the kibosh on the predators the other day! The second puck in 15 seconds and 4 total early in the 3rd. Still not convinced Peka Rinne can come through with the save after being pulled from game 2 even though they are up now. They really need him to pull through to stay in the series today.

        Santana just did a sweet Star spangled Banner rendition game 2 NBA playoffs. Only thing better was his velour track suit. Steve Kerr back behind the driver seat from the school of Phil Jackson. Back in the day when NBA teams had one good player like Jordan and he had a bunch of bum-made-good players. I blame the Shaq and Kobe era. Either way I'm rooting for the Lebrons huge Kylie Irving fan. Curry is fun to watch but I can't stand Durants skiping around the court like a grass hopper.

            Colon is now on the 10 day DL with a 'left oblique' injury. In other words the Braves are tired of a guaranteed loss every 5th day. Out of 88 pitchers who qualify for ERA based upon minimum innings met, Colon is 88 and he is 1.7ERA ABOVE #87. He is a complete joke. Braves need to pull their s*&t together and beat the Phillies these next two games. Absolutely no excuse that the we should be losing at home to the worst road record in the MLB.

              Just a little over a week until Swanson bobblehead day. Maybe once that is off the calendar they can send him back down a level to get his shtuff figured out.

                Beatdown...

                14-1 Braves over Phillies. That is all. The bats finally woke up last night. Oh and nothing beats seeing Lebron getting thrashed and say he is mentally and physically exhausted.

                    No kidding! Pretty excited to see Folty get a great win, Newcomb come up and not so excited about Max Wisler. He has never impressed as of yet. A doubleheader is a helluva way to though!

                      Sharapova would have won the French this year if the granted her the wild card. Ostapenko is still in it vs. that gypsy chick, she might have a fighting chance.

                        Man.. That poor guy that came in for 'relief' for the Phillies in the 8th. He didn't even look up when he threw the dinger to Adams. I think I would have at least tried something different - he was throwing 70mph 'fast balls' right down the middle. At least throw a big ol looping curve in there. I had a pretty mean knuckleball in high school that I'd like to try again. ha.

                          At this point you may be a better option than RA Dickey's knuckleball, lol. I do love me a good knuckleball pitcher though. I just wish we had gotten a hold of him earlier in his career.

                            Somebody must have told Colon "Hey, you don't look so good. How about some time off?" Hope we've seen the last of him and he finds work elsewhere if he wants it.

                              Simona Halep I had to look her up. Horrible French Open no Roger, and Novak Shiite the bed. Nadal dominates the claybut I hate his guts because of the Capri pants he wore for years...Murray is overatted and it showed. The Swiss kid has a shot.

                              Awful Stanley Cup this year, Mexico beat Honduras, Cavs put up 49in first quarter and still might loose, and the braves best player is a guy who throws less that 60mph. The hottest ticket in town is the ponies tomorrow. Giddyup.

                                What a stanley cup playoff!! Was rooting for Nashville in the end (almost). Malkin snubbed for the smythe trophy.
