"It's fun being healthy," Jurrjens said. "I forgot how much fun it is."

I miss when Jonny still wore some hair, but I get the decision. And speaking of Beachy, I adore Carroll's stories, and Beachy is still one of my top fave Braves.

Braves' Beachy has felt the heat of a pressure situation before
“All I can control is when I’ve got that ball in my hands,” he said. “So I’m going to do the best I can when I have it.”
The annual who-got-skinny AJC story -- for once, McCann isn't mentioned. ;)

Is it bad that I can recognize a few of the boys in picture #7 just by their body language? Thanks, batting practice? :) Here are more great pics!

Love all the media coverage! Wish I was there, but I'll be at opening day! Stay healthy, boys!

<3 Marteeen!

I was sad when I read that he wasn't thrilled about moving to LF (Uggla better have a phenomenal season grrr) but seeing his little happy smile makes it better. He has such a great attitude. I have no doubt he'll kick ass at LF too!
