A pretty cool news item came out of a seemingly innocent rehab start made by Tim Hudson this week. Teammates Adam LaRoche and Brian McCann, who through Spring Training, the World Baseball Classic, and the regular season likely take in 200+ games a year, sat in the front row of their teammate's start for AAA Gwinnett. It's admirable that they take care of each other and want to support their ailing friend.
While I'm not quite sure of this is the blogging equivalent, we at Walkoff Walk would be remiss were we not to give a shout out to our friend, commenter, twitter master, tumblrer, tipster, Heist-attender, and all around good guy Matt_T from Atlanta. Matt came home last night to find his home badly damaged in a fire.
I can't even image what that might feel like, but I know it wouldn't be good. All our thoughts are with our friend Matt (who's okay, we understand) and hopefully he can get back on his feet in no time. I'm sure we've all got some Braves merchandise, Mastadon tshirts, and Hold Steady records kicking around to help rebuild your collection. Chin chin, friend.
