Going for the sweep tomorrow! Good outing by Maholm, and great at bats from Heyward, JUp, and Freeman. Freeman can just flat out hit. I wouldn't be surprised if he hit in the .320-.330 range this season.

Big bro Upton had a horrible day at the ballpark with 4 K's. He'll get it going, though.

Doubt they get the game in with the weather they are having.....and as a Phillies fan, I will be just fine with that.

Is it just me, or are the Upton brothers more exciting than ANYTHING going on with the Panthers right now? Sure, BJ just got it going, but damn this is fun. And what's BEST is that 4 of 5 games have been on up here out of market! :)

I'm pissed off because the opener, and tonights game were not aired here even though the guide said they were supposed to be. I have watched every game every year and have never had this issue. They keep showing the stupid ass carolina hurricanes instead of the braves. I hate TWC

So much awesomeness and we're only 5 games in!

On a side-note, ESPN didn't have that Upton magic in their Top 10 Plays at all. Can't even watch SportsCenter without them pissing me off now...

Should be a fun week this week. 3 in Miami and then a series with the Nats. We'll see Strasburg as well this week. Would love to see them finish this week at least 4-2.

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
