Nashville Sounds

Nashville SoundsMetairie, LA – Trailing by a pair of runs and a Sound on every base in the ninth inning, Jaff Decker roped a bases-clearing double to put the Sounds in front for good. Nashville overcame the New Orleans Baby Cakes 8-6 Saturday evening at The Shrine on Airline.

The Sounds entered the ninth trailing 6-4 and for the second time in the ball game plated four runs in an inning. A single, walk, fielder’s choice, and a hit-by pitch loaded the bases for Decker, who came through in a big way. Yairo Muñoz added an insurance run for the Sounds with a sacrifice fly after Decker swiped third base.

Colby Wilson’s Atlanta Braves Report: The Ascension of A.J. Pierzynski

 

Atlanta BravesClarksville, TN – You want me to talk about John Hart and the Confusing, Off-the-Wall, Nonsensical, Very Weird Deal or do you want me to talk about something else? I have to mention it, obviously, but I can do it in 80 words or I can do it 800 words.

You picked 80. Smart.

I think when you make a deal where the biggest principles involved are a 24-year old mid-rotation starter, a 21-year old top prospect, a two-time All-Star closer and a 30-year old super prospect whose never seen a big-league pitch and has a sketchy injury history—and the only one you end up with is the 30-year old—then unless the 30-year old turns into steroids-era Mark McGwire or better, you lost the trade. But hey, no pressure Hector Olivera. Pickles.

(Sorry, I was on 79. Needed one more.)

Colby Wilson’s Atlanta Braves Report: Juan Gone

 

Atlanta BravesClarksville, TN – Bit of an amazing ride for Juan Uribe, no?

He begins the season with the prohibitive favorite Los Angeles Dodgers as the starting third baseman, only he’s kind of average and some Mets castoff named Justin Turner starts playing out of his mind, so the Dodgers send him to Atlanta, which wouldn’t be awkward except that they did so right in the middle of a series against the Braves.

So he and his stogies and a half-dozen of his cars come to Atlanta and become sort of folk-hero-y; after all, the last time we saw him he was ruining the best chance of an extended playoff run during the Fredi Gonzalez era. But he shuffles Chris Johnson to the pine and delivers some nice moments while with the Bravos and hey, here’s another photo of him smoking a big cigar with the Stanley Cup because Juan Uribe rolls like a boss.
