AJ Smith-Shawver

AJ Smith-Shawver was called up by the Braves on May 30th and on their roster, but wasn't available in either of my leagues last Sunday. Do we know why?

Re: Edwards Kings 2023 Blog...Dinks, Drips, and Drabs

Not been posting much as my team is pretty much an also ran at the one-third mark of the season...my moves have been expensive and un-productive. One of my best players is out for weeks because he stubbed his toe...same story, different year. May switch to my Auction league team there as it seems to...

Re: Edwards Kings 2023 Blog...Dinks, Drips, and Drabs

So, watching the Padre's/Twins game. Odor hits a HR (shock, I know), and then runs into the dugout, gets the Padre version of the unliscensed, but acceptable to MLB funny hat, then procedes to dance down the dugout. And I saze to myself for the millioneth time "What a manly thing to do!'" https://th...

Great to catch up with you, Wayne. Good luck this year and sorry again about Max Fried. :lol: Fried probably out until after the ASB, which sucks for the Braves, but Glenn...we're cool! :lol: Seriously, this sucks.... https://th.bing.com/th/id/R.6abc0efaf6e86b4b11191dd2c97b31eb?rik=DrjTXvjmGnP4sg&p...

I haven’t updated this blog in a while because quite frankly my team has hit rock bottom and started to dig. https://c.tenor.com/jpeuZ4PHZsUAAAAC/family-guy-sinking-ship.gif So at times like these, there are a few things you can do.

I do not have Woodruff, but him being placed on the DL is out of nowhere. Is it me or is this turning out to be the year of the surprise DL?

Just got back from working a 11:05 first pitch Gwinnett Stripers game….over 5,000 fans in the seats…more than attending most Oakland A’s games….and almost all students. Late school year get out of jail free card. https://th.bing.com/th/id/R.f89d315cfe95b6b81954b2df488bedae?rik=pdnoj0ZTAOUyxQ&pid=Img...

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am working as a FTC (time clock dude) for the Gwinnett Stripers, the Braves AAA franchise. Went well…did pretty well overall, but did visit the foul up fairy occasionally. https://th.bing.com/th/id/R.52b2e8700ffe228c7100d2e2184ec5f8?rik=b094e3Iouy7saA&pid=ImgRaw&...

Re: Edwards Kings 2023 Blog...Dinks, Drips, and Drabs

First game solo as an FTC in AAA. Ian Anderson started. This week in FAAB, get in on Anderson early....real early...prehistoric early. Braves looking for help can look elsewhere for a while. Couldn't get out of the first against the powerful Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp. Six runs in 2/3 of an inning (f...

Re: Edwards Kings 2023 Blog...Dinks, Drips, and Drabs

View from the press box. First game as a Field Time Coordinator (i.e. the pitch clock) at Coolray Field for the Gwinnett Strip(p)ers. Strangely enough, more complicated that I imagined having to "see" everything rather than "watch" everything. Gwinnett won the game on a walk-off three-run homer by b...

Re: Edwards Kings 2023 Blog...Dinks, Drips, and Drabs

Now I have to, have to take some starting pitching. As the draft slowly (not really…I think we averaged 24 seconds for each selection…but it felt like forever), there were a three pitchers I was high on (Scott Jenstad was also spacing his pitching selections out a bit and Scott grabbed one) and sure...

Re: Edwards Kings 2023 Blog...Dinks, Drips, and Drabs

The Draft To the other members of my league, I truly enjoyed the event on Saturday. It was a strong group…everyone had a plan and very few players “fell”. There were no easy picks as everyone was on their game. As special shout out to Glenn Schroter and the team of Jon Stadtmueller and Kelly Withrow...

VEGAS! I have participated in the events in Tampa, Orlando, Chicago, New York, but mostly Vegas. Loved each and every one, but Vegas always carries a certain panache. Trashy panache, yes…glittery, got to see it at night panache, why in the hell is there a “White Castle” on the main drag panache, but...
