A lover of baseball, travel, and traveling for baseball, at the beginning age of obvious decline. I probably see the game in a different light than you do. Or maybe not. Everything changes, from day-to-day. Let's just all say we all like sports, and agree on that.

A firm believer that when things get complicated, take a few steps back, take a deep breath, and look forth at the simplicity and beauty that is the Great American Game. Love it for what it is, and prepare to take all that it gives us, good or bad.

Any bobblehead enthusiasts want to make a trade?

Hi Rays fans. Earlier in the season I made a brief trip down to St. Pete's for a day, and I took in a Rays game. It was while at this game, that looking through the game day program, I...

Visitor seeking local advice

Hallo AA folks. Lousy Braves fan here, seeking local advice. Team allegiances aside, I'm also an avid ballpark traveler. I've got my sights set on Citi Field on June 30th, and I'm thinking about...

Around the NL East: So Long, TC

69

The Nationals fall to third place, joining the Mets, Marlins and Phillies all beating each other up into a pile of mediocrity within the division. This is good news for the Braves and us fans.

Around the NL East: Mets Sweep Subway Series

The Mets series sweep the Yankees for the first time in Interleague play, the Phillies and Nationals deal with injuries in varying manners, and the Marlins are simply just trying to field a team.

Around the NL East: PHILA-DL-PHIA

In contrast to last week, the Braves had a good week, while just about everyone else in the NL East stumbled a little bit; which is great news for Braves Country.

Around the NL East: Harper vs. A Wall

It was a tepid week in the NL East, where every team except for the Nationals posted a sub-.500 record in their last ten games, but even the Nats' successes came with a hard price.

Around the NL East: Halladay to DL

Roy Halladay joins Johan Santana as once-great ace pitchers to limp their way through their walk years with major shoulder injuries.

Around the NL East: Anyone Left in Miami?

8

Seriously, with Giancarlo out of the lineup, I think we can all legitimately make claims that the Marlins are no better than most organizations' Triple-A or even Double-A affiliates.

A few questions for locals

Hi Rowbots. Do you guys even still refer to yourself as Rowbots? It's been a long while since I've visited Purple Row, which was right after when Ubaldo Jimenez no-hit the Braves in 2010; and...

Around the NL East: Love April Weather

1

Across the baseball landscape, April showers come into play, creating rainouts, and in some cases, massive snow issues in some regions. Gotta love April baseball!

Around the NL East: And They're Off

7

Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg pick right back up where they left off in 2012, the Mets defy everything and start strong, while the Phillies stumble out the gate to the Braves, and the Fish are...

Around the NL East: Spring's Over

Well boys and girls, this is the moment we've all been waiting for. Spring Training is over, and the regular season is now just days away. A fresh new season of the sounds of bats cracking, gloves...

One more week of Spring Training, before we reach the home stretch of teams playing against random colleges, and home field exhibitions.

8

And there's STILL two more weeks of boring and unexciting Spring Training to fill after this one!

Around the NL East: Rivalries!

3

The extra week of Spring Training due to the WBC has been a hot topic this week. Players are getting bored, losing their focus, and in some cases (the Mets) have had more time to get hurt.

The first week of the Grapefruit League has come and gone, hope springs eternal for every team, and now the WBC is going to water most everyone down for the next two weeks.

This weekend, we embark on the start of a season anew, with Grapefruit League games beginning, and us getting our first looks at our favorite players after a very tempermental winter. That is,...

With Spring Training literally behind the corner, not much news other than teams fortifying.

Around the NL East: Gio Linked to PEDs?

6

It's that time of the year where minor league deals are doled out like playing cards, and potential arbitration cases are sniffed and analyzed like bad scratch and sniff stickers. How many days...

Around the NL East: Non-Justin Upton News

29

It's difficult to pay attention to what the other teams have been doing, when the Braves easily made the biggest news this week.

Around the NL East: Nats Have Busy Week

12

Business is starting to pick up again, headlined by the return of a familiar face and the departure of a nuisance to the Braves.

Around the NL East: Adam LaRoche Extended

39

And just like that a notable move happened in the division; as the days are now getting longer, so must the buzzing of an upcoming season.
