Post-game thread, 9/26

Sorry about the late thread — feeling sketchy tonight. Feeling worse after hearing the news about McCann’s right abductor strain, which is the same injury that sidelined B.J. earlier in the summer. Hopefully it’s not that serious, but it’s possible we have just seen B-Mac’s last game as a Brave. Which means we’ll have the pleasure of watching either B.J., Schafer or Laird start in the playoffs.

Meanwhile, did anyone else hear Chip’s answer to tonight’s trivia question (When’s the last time two Braves infielders won a Gold Glove in the same season)?

Mark Texshowmethemoney and Rafael Belliard. Seriously. Great guess, Chip, except for the fact Belliard’s Atlanta career ended 10 years before Borasbot’s started. It’s one thing to be annoying. It’s another to be clueless about the team you’ve covered off and on since 1991.

Finally, where the fuck is Jordan Walden? Tonight presented an excellent opportunity to give him some work. Is he still hurt? Is Fredi still dim? Questions worth asking, don’t you think?

  1. Clete Boyer and Felix Millan in 1969

  2. I thought he said Teixeira and Furcal (who were still never close to being teammates.)

    He said Belliard. I remember because my son asked me who he was, and then I had to give him a talk about glibness and stupidity. I loved Skip, but that man’s sperm must have been pickled in scotch.

    Joe guessed TP and Belliard. Then Chip said Tex and Furcal.

  5. Pretty sure he said Belliard. Furcal is defensible, so if I’m incorrect my apologies to Chip.

    What was the correct answer?–I was fast-frwarding and missed it—Thanks
