Elliot Johnson Should Do All Interviews

When the Atlanta Braves acquired Elliot Johnson, my guess is that they never expected the light hitting second baseman to do more than provide some relief to their current crop of infielders. However...dude is quickly becoming the "go to" guy when it comes to interviews. Over the weekend, the former Kansas City Royal did his best impersonation of Will Ferrell'...

Second Thoughts Game #132: Indians 2, Braves 3

Pre-Game Commentary Without dwelling too much on another disappointing performance by the Indians’ offense on Tuesday, I’ll just say that entering the series this is the game that seemed most winnable. Justin Masterson takes the hill against Paul Maholm, who recently returned from the disabled list and has just a 4.45 ERA on the season.
