I apologize for the infrequency of my updates and the lack of thought and depth when they occurr. I’ve been rather busy as of late and haven’t had the time to write those lengthy pieces that I enjoy doing. Just a few announcements:
1) I’m now doing short updates on twitter (I caved). You can see the link on the left sidebar.
2) A new poll will be up by the time you’re reading this. We’ll go with this one until we have 25 votes. Then I’ll use the same set of answers but change the question to “Which Braves Coaches Should Be Fired” and allow you to select multiple answers. And we’ll then go with that for awhile.
3) If you have anything you’d like addressed in a post or just want a chat, email the Capitol Avenue Club Mailbag. You can find a link on the right sidebar.
4) At some point during the All-Star Break I’ll post a fairly lengthy review of the season through 88 games (if all 4 get played in Colorado)
5) I’m going to have a piece up tonight but it won’t be Braves related.
6) Francoeur, in case you didn’t know, sucks. Past 2 years Runs Above Replacement (minimum 100 PA’s):
530) Jeff Francoeur -20.6
529) Tony Pena -18.7
528) Gary Matthews Jr. -18.7
527) Delmon Young -15.6
526) Mark Sweeney -15.1
And yes, only 530 players have 100 or more PA’s over the past 2 seasons. He’s very bad.
