Found April 21, 2013 on Love My Bravos:
view from Jenna's season ticket seats Things you need to know before we get to the pictures... 1. Lisa offered me her season tickets since she couldn't go (this is her view), and I invited Alison to come since she'd missed opening week after being super-sick. Lisa is great. 2. Jenna invited Alison and I to come up and sit with her, and that was awesome too. Jenna is also great. 3. My camera is in the shop right now. It hasn't been focusing correctly for a while. It's going to cost $80 to fix it, and I don't even have a fancy camera. That is not great. So here are some improperly focused pictures. "Enjoy". Big Game James seemed to have a lot of Braves friends. I have no comment for this but I'm sure y'all do. ;) Gattis took some fly balls in left field. Possibly a piece of the plan for McCann's return? Kimmie smiled a lot in beepee. I mean, a LOT. I love it. Also snagged my first Kimmie yawning picture of 2013! Yesss! Sometimes I think I&...

Royals pitcher faces 9/11 comparisons

In New York after 9/11, it was Steve Karsay. In Boston on Saturday, it could be Tim Collins. To play in one's hometown almost immediately after a terrorist attack - amid grief, anxiety and common purpose -- brings forth a unique set of emotions. To do so as an opposing player merely adds to the complexity. Karsay, who grew up in Queens, was the setup man for the Atlanta Braves...

Game 17 Preview: Pirates vs. Braves

Braves (13-3) at Pirates (8-8) 7:05 PM–PNC Park, Pittsburgh MLB.com Gameday TV: ROOT The Bucs go for two in a row against the Braves tonight at PNC. It’s Andrew McCutchen bobblehead night, so there should be a solid crowd (which is good, since there haven’t been any good crowds since the opener). A win would clinch a series split for the Bucs, which would be a very strong result...
