Silent Night Owl

Well, not anymore.

For those of you who haven't heard from him in recent months, fear not: a package came in the mail recently from Night Owl. The King of the Baseball Card Blogosphere even included a short note; yes folks, he is alive and has spoken!





Why, yes. Yes, I can.




IT'S A JO-JO SIGHTING!!! Jo-Jo's career with the Braves ended in an impressive fashion. Relieving starter Jair Jurrjens, who was roughed up for 8 runs (all earned) on 8 hits and 2 walks in 3.1 innings, Jo-Jo was even worse: 9 runs (all earned) on 10 hits, 3 walks, 2 homers in 3.1 innings (92 pitches!!). It was his first and only appearance during the 2010 season- and his final appearance in an Atlanta Braves uniform. I need this card for my 2009 O-Pee-Chee team set. YAAAAAAAY!

Thank God the Ryan Doumit experiment has ended. Was supposed to provide a good, powerful bat off the bench- he hit .197 in 157 AB's. But he did provide 5 homers.


Ugly all-star caps. Here's hoping that they do not use them this year.


WASHINGTON NATS....LOOOOOOOOOL!!! I JUST KNOW THAT UGGLA WILL BE IN WASHINGTON AT SOME POINT THIS YEAR AND WILL TORCH THE BRAVES FOR 10 HOMERS.

So long, Meds. Good luck in KC.



Now for some vintage- I'll just let the cards speak for themselves...













Thanks again, Greg!
