The Saga Continues

Includes the Year of Kolb, the Debut of Jeffy, and far too much Reitsma. There’s about a month’s gap where the posts are missing in my archives, I don’t know why.

Live! From Kansas City!

And The Baseball Project! And now, stand and cheer, here’s Jeffy! [AUDIENCE GIVES FIVE MINUTE STANDING OVATION] Jeff Francoeur: Thanks, thanks everybody. I know I deserve it, but it’s […]

Time for a new post post

I don’t really have anything to say. December is always a rough time if the Braves aren’t active. Discussion question: If Jeff Francoeur were a TV show, what TV show would he be? I say “Ally McBeal.”

Thanksgiving thread

I really do have a lot to be thankful for, even if I don’t always recognize it. Including you guys — thanks. And now, Jeff Francoeur riding a giant turkey.

Metty Goodness game thread: Aug. 31, Mets at Braves

Now, I’m not saying that Jeffy won’t play in the Atlanta Metropolitan Area next year. He’ll look great in a road uniform in Gwinnett.

This could be the last time game thread: Aug. 30 Mets at Braves

Do you realize that this could be the very last series that Jeffy plays in Atlanta? I mean, even if anyone wants him to play for them next year, it would probably be the Royals.
