Time for some links! Happy weekend, everyone!
The first is an AJC article on one of my fave Braves I met this off-season, Cory Gearrin, and his unique delivery. Why can't we have two righty sidearmers in the bullpen? One's from Australia and one's from Tennessee. Sounds different to me. :D
But unless you saw Gearrin pitching the other day in the Braves’ ESPN game against Detroit, most of you aren’t familiar with his peculiar pitching delivery. It can’t be called a windup, because there is none. It can barely be called a pitching motion, because there is so little.It's very cool. Hope to see you pitching permanently in the bigs soon, Cory!

MattE posted this link on his Foundation's Facebook page -- he gives a great Lou Pinella impression. :D Watch his interview here!
790 The Zone has posted three audio interviews with our Braves lately... check them out!

Link to a photo of Freddie and JHey at the Magic Knicks game. Question: isn't that Joba behind them? How are JHey and Freddie on the floor and a Yankee is behind them at the NYK game? ;)
