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.
batting practice Friday
pitching in the game Friday
He pitched very well, as usual. And I like his new number choice.
pretty eyes on Saturday
eventually their entire bullpen wore their hats like this. :)
there was a streaker
that security guy's face
the streaker's face
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.)
(torn ACL not pictured)
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. ❤
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.
