Game Day Pictures: Braves vs Athletics 8-15 and 8-16-2014

I took a lot of pictures on EO weekend, but it took so long to find the motivation to edit the pictures that I only chose a few. Here are some of the best from both games.

He pitched very well, as usual. And I like his new number choice.

A few friends told me I should have gone down the wall to talk to one of my favorite former Braves, but that's never been my style. I was just glad a couple of the things I hoped to see that weekend actually happened - EO pitched on Friday and made Blue Steel face on Saturday. :)

(If you want to see any other pictures, shoot me a message and I can send them. Except the accidental full frontals of the streaker - those got deleted.)

Another torn UCL

I've had some injury-prone fave Braves in the past (hi Moylo) but I can't even process this, y'all.

Disclosure: I have not read most of these articles. I can't right now. Just putting them here in case any of you want to read them or I decide to read them later.

Braves.com: Venters has torn UCL, faces third Tommy John surgery

AJC.com: Venters will need 3rd TJ surgery if he hopes to pitch again

Hey Jonny, I have two UCLs. You can have my left one if you want it.

How did we miss this?

2014-08-25 10_25_24-Kimbrel has high praise for Reds closer Chapman _ www.ajc.com
Initially I clicked a link on Twitter to read an article titled, "Kimbrel has high praise for Reds closer Chapman" (which is a good read if you like pitching), and that picture was in the sidebar and it cracked me up. I hardly ever read the AJC anymore so I'm sorry I missed that photo. It's great, mostly because I can't tell if he's being serious or sarcastic.

------------------------------

I haven't forgotten about the gameday posts from the A's series. I'll get the pics up soon.
