2008 Silver Slugger, Brian McCann! *crowd roars*

Official press release

No other Braves on the list. I'm surprised Chipper didn't win, considering he won the batting title.

Whoo hoo Mac! I am also suprised that Chipper didn't win but then again- when did leading the league in hitting mean you were the best hitter? It makes about as much sense as Wright winning the gold glove last year by making more errors then any other 3rd baseman...

Someone's buying those awards for DW, is all I can conjecture.

Yay Mac! I love the new slim downed look. He looks GOOD in the pics from his dad's thing posted below. Looks like a lot more than 15 lbs to me but maybe just what he's wearing.

Yay Mac! His conference call is worth the 9+ minutes. You can hear his dogs start barking at a deer in the background, he has to see what it is, and completely misses the question. Quite funny. Toward the end, the people talking with him don't know what to ask him. I would be coming up with stuff to ask him. ;)

Also, it amazes me how down to earth he is. I've never met him (have been close a few times, but not quite close enough), but the times I've been around him, he's been the nicest person to all the fans. I also really love the fact that he says "more better" in one of his answers. :D

Oops, forgot the link to the conference call.

Thanks Leah!


Man I hadn't realized how much I missed listening to Mac talk...He really is just adorable

I love how he says "as I get older" like he's old...loved the "more better" too:)

Lauren T. said...

Hee, "more better". Also, he's working out with DeRo! I love DeRo so much.

Leah said...

You're welcome.

He's truly one of a kind. ;)

Yay! I loved the picture of him in the official e-mail announcing the award. :D

Yaaaayyyy! I'll have to listen to his conference call tomorrow (too late to turn the speakers on now).

Lo, I've read 20 lbs. in some articles. He's taking this seriously.

Chipper was robbed. How can the batting champ not win the Silver Slugger?
