Jason Heyward is a wonderful role model and a fantastic outfielder and base runner.  However, I think five years is enough to evaluate his hitting prowess and that is simply mediocre.
 
His 162 game average for 5 years is 20 home runs, 69 RBI and a .262 batting average.  
 
For a guy who is 6' 5", weighs 245 and is built like Adonis, those are simply not the numbers you would expect.
 
I think the Braves made the right move for them, and hopefully St. Louis will be a place where Heyward can live up to his potential.

I just wanted to thank you for having Mike Lutzenkirchen on the program this morning. I have an 18 year old son who is a high school senior. He will be going off to play D1 college baseball next year. I constantly talk with him about making good decisions and of course I always worry about him. I would love to have Mr. Lutzenkirchen come speak with his team. It's a powerful message. Often we get hung up on the wrong things... Mr. Lutzenkirchen and his son's story really puts things in perspective.
 
Thank you,
Jeff Hughes

Robert Alford is out 2-4 weeks with a wrist injury huh.  Let's check out some DBs from the past and compare
 
Larry Wilson - St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Famer
 
Playing with casts on both of his BROKEN HANDS, he leaped high to block a pass by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Bill Nelsen. Wilson then cradled the deflection in his arms and ran the ball back 35 yards, setting up a touchdown. The play was vintage Larry Wilson — grit and determination. Overall, he ran those 52 career interceptions back for 800 yards and five touchdowns.
 
Ronnie Lott - 49ers Hall of Famer
 
He had the tip of his left pinky finger AMPUTATED after the 1985 season when it was crushed by tackling running back Timmy Newsome, and a bone graft surgery wouldn't have him ready in time for the 1986 season.
 
 
 
Not a DB, but remember Jack Youngblood played with a broken leg.  
 
One of the athletic feats for which Youngblood is best known, is that of playing the entire 1979 playoffs, includingSuper Bowl XIV, with a FRACTURED LEFT FIBULA.[25] He also played in the 1980 Pro Bowl with the injured leg, a week after the Super Bowl
 
Hmm maybe they were a tad tougher in the old days.

I love when people say that Tech will never get a QB who has NFL aspirations like UGA, UF or FSU.  However, they do get receivers, running backs, offensive and defensive lineman, linebackers and safeties (can't think of a cornerback off the top of my head).
 
Oh, and lets look at those other three programs
 
Here are the QBs at FSU recently ---
84 Eric Thomas 
85-87 Danny McManus 
1988 Chip Ferguson 
1989 Peter Tom Willis 
90-91 Casey Weldon 
92-93 Charley Ward 
94-95 Danny Kanell 
96-97 Thad Busby 
98-00 Chris Weinke 
01-04 Chris Rix 
05-07 Drew Weatherford 
08- Christian Ponder   
09 ? E.J. Manuel
 
Not a single one would even be considered a "good" NFL QB.  Manuel and Weinke might be "fair"
 
UGA - in the last 35 years (sorry Buck) has had ONE - Matthew Stafford who would be considered a "good" or better NFL quarterback.  Murray, Greene, Shockley, Zeier, Bobo, Robinson, etc, etc., not NFL material
 
UF - Heisman Trophy winners, all time passing leaders, statistical greats, not one would even be considered good.  Maybe Rex Grossman would be "fair".  Wuerfful,  Palmer, Bell, Johnson, Matthews, Tebow, Leak.  All complete busts.

Rude,
 
Please don’t give credit to Jeremy Foley for the Urban Meyer hire @ Florida. Foley handled the paperwork, Bernie Machen did the recruiting of Meyer.
 
Foley’s only great hire was Donovan, who was a reach when he was hired and did horribly his 1st year, tieing a record for consecutive losses. He has turned out to be an all-time great hire, but that was not without some initial growing pains. Since it was Basketball, nobody really noticed as they would in football.
 
My opinion is that Foley should be gone as well. He gets much more credit than he deserves.

I'm not a sports fan except when my oldest daughter plays her college ball and the youngest twirls her batons at half time of her high school during football season. I listened to you just about every morning and was sadden when I found out. 96 rock had taking you off. I just wanted to shoot you an email and I will have to tune in Monday and listen in. I still have a taped song by pale white sausage somewhere were I belive what's his name, the traffic guy even played with y'all. I'll have to find it. Good to know your still in atl and good luck to ya. m smith Sent from my iPhone

  • John Knieper We are trading for a bunch of arms but wasn't our major problem last year hitting?
     
  • Mike Barnett He hit 271 here last year. That with a Gold Glove is pretty darn good.
     
  • John Eades He's just like Francoeur -alot of promise and 1 good year,great defense and uncoachable at hitting. Heyward will always be a 250-260 hitter.
     
  • Lin Hansard ^^^agreed.
     
  • Todd J. Loehr REALLY dumb trade if you ask me.
     
  • Mike Barnett Very dumb. He hit 271 last year not 250!
     
  • Rob Stearns No doubt!!!
     
  • Todd J. Loehr And he's still young!
     
  • Coleman Dagley There's plenty of "jay heys" in Cuba
     
  • Jay Priday Buy his rookie card, now. The stock will rise!
     
  • Billy Wyatt Anybody remember Adam Wainwright?
     
  • Tony Tumlin Guys I hate to see him go too but he's in the last year of average money contract and in his prime. Trade value won't be higher. Baseball has guaranteed money. They didn't want to overpay long term. Especially after Uggs and BJ.

    • Keith B Sanders Probably his agent. Hence the Money over Hoes shirt.
       
    • Adam Vance He does have Dimino's catchphrase on his shirt.
       
    • Christopher Rude Giancarlo Stanton, who will make $68,493 per day for 13 years, celebrated his new $325,000,000 contract last night with a big bottle of champagne at a Miami club. That’s the look of a guy who just turned 25 and knows exactly how much guaranteed money will be flowing to his bank account until he’s 38 and ready to leave the game behind.
       
    • Jody Harris must be hell to live that poverty stricken LOL
       
    • Bob Burch Wow, his boys

    Chris/Rude,
    When are you guys going to give the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets some real love??? They are 8-2 and ranked #22 in the country, but you guys keep counting them out and assume that the upcoming game is another win for Georgia?  I have news for you, this GT team has other plans, and CPJ has these boys all lathered up for the next two games.  So, don't count your chickens, not just yet. Trust me, CPJ has some unfinished business in Athens, and I can't wait to see that offensive line chew up Pruitt's vaunted (?) Georgia defense. Remember, we had a 20 point lead last year, before they clawed their way back and forced an overtime win. We've already watched a mediocre Florida Gators team beat them down, and they laid out the blue prints for our success. Just run the football, check!  So hold on to your britches gentlemen, it ain't over till its over. There's no doubt in my mind, that this GT offense can run with big boys, and I'm not just whistling Dixie. Oh and guess what, that GT defense is playing with much more confidence, that's half the battle at Tech. In any case, how about some love for these blue-collar Jackets, they've earned it. You want to discuss something, let's talk about the various scenarios where we win the ACC Coastal, and then go up and lay a whooping on Clemson & Georgia and get a big bowl bid.  I see Synjyn Days, Laskey, Charles Perkins and  Broderick Snoddy making big runs all day long. I see Justin Thomas and Smelter hooking up for some big plays down field. I'm getting goosebumps just thinking about these next two games guys.  Hey, aren't you guys called our flagship station?  Come on, let's play the devil's advocate and show the other side of things. Besides, just how much SEC football do we need to hear about each and every day???  Give GT and the ACC some equal time, they have definitely earned it, and I don't think they've played their best football game yet, but its coming soon.  I expect a generous helping to be served up in Athens, after folks enjoy their Thanksgiving meals. Regards from The Flats. JohnG
    Thanks John. This is a big game for Tech. In addition to the "Morning Buzz" at 7:05am on TRA I think we gave the Jackets at lot of "love" this week! Perry will be there at the game representin'

    Dear Christopher,  i want to start out by saying how much i appreciate your show. My kids and i listen every morning on our way to drop them off at school,  its my morning reality break from my everyday struggles. I do wish however that 680 or the corporation that owns 680 could try and bring more awareness to the public regarding so many disabled vets that are in desperate need for help but never ask for help. The VA health care is worst than anyone can possibly image. Beyond what the media reports. Compensation for us disabled vets isn't even close enough to support 1 person let alone a family of 4 such as I have. I am 90 percent disabled and get just over 1000 monthly. And on the verge of loosing my home, car, and other things. Its just not enough to support a wife and 2 teenagers. Im not alone by any means. I would also like to point out that so many of us vets never say anything,  or complain. Mainly because it wouldn't make any difference, but also its just not in our nature to complain.  There are so many great people that want to say thank you for our service but then go about their lives because of the lack of awareness.  Please dont misunderstand me. It completely warms my heart and soul to hear someone thank me for my service. But if they only understood the extreme financial, physical, and mostly the emotional struggles disabled vets are dealing with every day. Once again thank you for all that you do. And please tell Perry and Dimino how great they are. Just wish they got along a little more. That is hard to listen to sometimes.
    Thanks for your E-Mail
    Other than acknowledging Veterans for their service to our country a couple of times a year, what can we do to help? What are the options for veterans when they are in desperate situations like yourself? What can I do to help? BTW, I'll tell Perry and Dimino...

    You two are waaay over thinking this.  If Georgia wins out, they will leapfrog everyone and be in the top four because they will be the SEC champions, which means they will have defeated Auburn (possibly twice), Alabama, or Mississippi State. That win on a "neutral" field, to win the championship of the SEC will be their ticket to the dance. There is NO WAY this committee is going to have the FIRST EVER college football national "playoff" in Division I (FBS) and NOT include the champion of the best conference in America, the SEC ... not just the best conference this year, the best for the past several years.  The committee has shown how subjectively they're looking at this, so if I'm thinking about this I'm sure they are too.  
    Also, let's not be naive and ignore the fact that billions of dollars are involved here.  If there is NO SEC team in the tournament, there will be backlash from SEC/Southern football fans, who make up the vast majority of college football fans and college football viewers.  Millions in the South will still watch the "playoffs" and still support the various sponsors, BUT millions will not.  It wouldn't even surprise me to see die-hard SEC fans picketing outside of the two semi-final games as well as the championship game, in fact I can almost guarantee it.
    If you're nutty enough to poison an oak tree, spending a few bucks on a plane ticket and a hotel room to travel to Pasadena or New Orleans to carry a sign for four hours is not out of the question.

    hi chris its me walter! hey chris i never ask you to read my emails over the airwaves, however i really want you to read this.  to the caller who called wednesday around 11:10am debating whether Todd Curley is a great teamate with Steak, i ask you this, if you are on Mark Richt's coaching staff and you cheat on your wife over a period of two years and she finds out and as a result Mark Richt tells the bulldog nation you are a great husband and great coach would Mark Richt be wrong or right in telling the public this. so no matter what Todd Curley did he is still a great teamate just like you would still be a great husband dispite knocking boots with someone other than your wife for 2 years. lol!
    love ya rude!

    Walter,
    Not to diminish your opinion, but can you really compare cheating on your wife with signing a few (#fillintheblank) autographs?

    After watching Friday night’s game against the Mets, to me, they look like a bunch of guys just trying to hit home runs and not playing together as a team, trying to win a game. The pitchers deserve more than that, the way they’ve pitched their rear ends off, even in the face of adversity. This tells me that Freddie Gonzalez has lost control of this team, and I don’t know if he can get it back. It may have even started when he wouldn't let Kimbrell come in the game in the eighth inning last year to try and close that playoff game last season. He showed no guts by taking the easy way out. I think Freddie’s a nice guy, but I get the impression he was put in and told to coach like Bobby Cox. Nobody but Bobby Cox can coach like Bobby Cox, however, and the result is nobody’s coaching.

    Dan,
    This may sound like an outtake from "Interstellar," BUT, I just got this E-Mail THIS WEEK. Now, either modern technology is a farce OR you sent this from another galaxy, thus the delay?
