I have YES channel where I am, so I got to see Atkins play the yankees. He really is hitting in a great spot behind helton and holliday, great to see he is finaly batting runners in and is looking more like his 2006 self ;D


One thing about him, he loves to get pitches low, and has trouble on high pitches.

It's kinda hard to NOT believe in the Jynx. He has started almost every game with a big hit or maybe in his second AB......then someone posts something and he goes 0'fer after the post. So as someone posted earlier, I will continue believing in the jynx until its proven wrong. If you don't want to take part in the Garrett Atkins thread by all means get out and dont come back here.

Go Garrett ;D


How about you celebrate by throwing your arms up and not by coming here and submitting a message??

No need for any hostility. This thread is all about positivity. Besides, there is an appropriate thread for in game comments...the Game Commentary forum. Let's keep this thread reserved for before and after game comments...

If you gotta cheer during the game i guess it goes in "game commentary cheering and venting forum"? Cheering and venting.

This thread has devolved into nothing more than GC so I am going to close it up.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
