Went down yesterday to try my luck with the Braves. The weather was horrible so i thought that might help due to the setup of their hotel. Well, yes and no. Some ventured out but majority didn't.

First was Uggla. He and his smoking lady friend looked like they were in a hurry to get somewhere so i let the card grapher take it. Majority of time if it's not the right time, i don't ask. Figured i would get him when he returns. Next was Alex " i want to look and act like Pitbull" Gonzalez. Dude wasn't feeling it, might had to do with the sunglasses indoors. Chip Carey was though. He signed and chatted up anybody that spotted him. But i wasn't wasting a ball.

The big fish of the day was Tim Hudson. There were a few locals graphing and didn't attempt it. They were 'matter of fact' that Tim WON't sign on pitching days. After he grabbed a bite to eat, i had to go for it. Can't add to the collection with a wave and nod. So as he came back, i asked and BAM. He said no problem. SS to the ip collection. I was stoked and the locals just stared with mouth wide open. Know it alls can be good just as much bad. Arrogance is their downfall.

Freddie, Jason, and Chipper didn't venture out. Took the cab and went to stadium. (My buddy did get Chipper today along with Hudson and Don Sutton getting in the cabs) So another outing with success. I can't stand getting shut out. Scrub or not.

The Braves have been great for me this year. Out of 3 games, I've got Chipper twice, Uggla twice, Lowe, Lugo, Hinske, Conrad and more.

No doubt they are a good signing team. The setting is different compared to normal hotels. Weather played a factor to some degree. I'm stoked that Tim hooked me up.
