Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior.
I've been married since July 17, 2004 to my beautiful wife, who also doubles as my best friend. We have an almost-three-years-old Boston Terrier named Lucy who's also pretty awesome.
My wife and I both graduated from Vanderbilt University in May of 2004. I graduated from Law School at the University of Georgia in May of 2007 and am now practicing in Nashville, Tennessee.
I really, really love the Atlanta Braves.
[Note: I’m optimistic about the team going forward, and now that Spring games have started, it’s a time for joy and excitement. This is a curmudgeonly take that doesn’t really fit well, timing-wise — it’s something I should have produced two months ago. Nevertheless, I only just now ran the numbers, and here they are.]
Hector Olivera made his debut and did absolutely nothing of note, which means he is already more competent than the average Braves player, these days. Banuelos wasn’t good, but at least he’s back on the mound. Some other guys did some stuff. The team lost again.
Alex Wood took the mound for the first time since September 18th and turned in a pretty encouraging performance, I thought. He didn’t make it out of the fifth inning, but that’s partly because Bucknor gonna Bucknor…
Other than one bad-ass swing from the obviously-rejuvenated Evan Gattis, this game wasn’t much fun to watch. Mike Minor was not very sharp, surrendering 11 hits and five runs in six innings, and neither were the bats — at least, not once…
