Returning back home from a Tennessee Mountain, figured we would make a 3 hour detour and catch last nights game. Life long Braves, and especially Dale Murphy fan, nowhere else I could take the family to eat pre game, other than Murph’s. I get there, check myself in on Facebook to brag to my fellow Baseball friends. I check out other Murph hashtags and find out I missed the man himself by about an hour. Damn 75 south and the traffic. Wings were great, wife loved the BLT, and walking to the stadium was the easiest parking.
Side note.....if you’ve never been, most parking doesn’t open up until 5:30 on weekday games. BP starts at 5:05 for the 7:35 games, but you can’t get to your seats until 5:30.
So I’ve been fortunate enough to get enough grind time in for Chipper and Ripken. I have a really bad habit of getting anxious with new cards and swinging at bad pitches....so while those two guys are not hitting well in the beginning, what they are doing is forcing my RS opponents to pitch a lot more strikes to the guys in front of them. Ripken has helped me get Albies average up 20 points and Chipper has gotten JDs up 15 points. Didn’t expect this but if I’m not hitting well with the two immortals at least they are helping me like that.

It’s going to be hard to tell if I’m really doing well with some of these diamond career arc cards, and hell, even the position players I’m using to get them. I’m on the last mission for Schmidt and Larkin.....both are hitting well over .500. In the rest of my lineup I’m grinding the gold and diamond 1b hits.....their averages have all shot up.
