BEACH WEEK 2013 is finally here!
Please excuse me if I am just a bit distracted this week. I am dreaming of a week of disconnect down in Palm Coast Florida with the family. Cell phone left on the dresser in the condo, IPAD charging on a desk for just occasional visits. I am mostly absent from Twitter and lve getting away from it all. We all deserve it and I hope you find some time for mental rest this summer.
There is only one problem with being the King of the really bad division in MLB, you are not getting challenged. Bigger problem, we are only halfway through the month of June! The Braves find themselves with a comfortable lead and a lot of issues to be worked out. Thankfully, no big hurry to get the answers. The Nationals are mediocre and the Phillies are beyond their usefulness preparing for a sell off.
The Braves future is so bright with all of this young talent. It is becoming apparent that Brian McCann and Tim Hudson will be moving on in the off-season. This year needs to produce a playoff run or a championship. Make it count.
HAWKS IN FLUX
I am not as excited about the off-season for the Hawks as I thought that I would be. The intrigue is not really there with no big names looking to land in Atlanta. We always here how much pro athletes LOVE living in Atlanta. I guess they just don't LOVE the idea of being a Hawk. Let the rebuilding begin.
MATT RYAN CONTRACT DRAMA?
In six weeks the Falcons report for Training Camp. Matt Ryan will also be entering into the last year of his contract. I am in the total minority here, but I do not believe that he will be going through training camp and pre-season games without a contract extension. I do not think that he wants to "pull a Flacco" and be a FA and roll the dice. Both sides want a deal, but it appears little progress is being made. THIS could be the most interesting story EVER in ATL Sports talk radio that did not involve dog fighting.
I do believe that with 3 first time starters on the offensive line, Matt better have a great insurance policy too.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
I'll return to the JK Show on CBS Sports Radio on the Fan on Sunday, 6/23 and to "Buck and Kincade" on Monday, 6/24
