Atlanta Braves: Every media outlet brims with optimism about the local teams at the start of every season. Sure, the Philadelphia Phillies are SI cover boys, but what about the 91-win Atlanta Braves? From the AJC: “Yes, on paper, Philadelphia has one of the greatest starting pitching rotations ever assembled. But on the field, the Braves project like National League East Division champions.” I must have missed the projection. There’s more. “Adding Dan Uggla gives the lineup the potent right-handed bat it needed … Martin Prado is as good an all-around player as there is in baseball. Nate McLouth looks better …” What the hell is a Martin Prado? Well, I’m ready. I’ve got my Say Heyward t-shirt on and my favorite Sid Bream baseball card in hand. [AJC]
It’s been another rough night for Tom Brady.

Last time I checked, looking totally swoll wasn’t against the law!
A Heisman candidate, and a target of attention.
That didn’t take long.
