It was many and many a month ago,
in a kingdom three hours from Garfield
That a stadium lie there who you may know
By the name of Turner Field
And this stadium had no other design
Than to be home to the Atlanta Braves
I was a fan and she had my team,
in that kingdom three hours from Garfield
But I loved the Braves, and they almost won
In the stadium called Turner Field,
With a love that the missing letter Natinals,
coveted for their outfield
So they swept us in four games
In that kingdom three hours from Garfield
Leaving us out of the postseason
Bringing the offseason to Turner Field
Franky and Co. went to work
To build a better team
What's this you say?
You don't know who's new
In the kingdom three hours from Garfield
Take a look below and you shall see
Who's who and who's new
And who will play by the zoo
At the kingdom called Turner Field
2 things before I begin:
1) Yes, I based this off a poem, although I want to see if anyone can pick it up
2) I actually only did this because I wanted to write poetry (slow times)
So, there was talk for a Newbie Guide in terms of nicknames and I was bored, so here you go:
ATJ – All Thumbs Jefferson for Kelly Johnson. I think his old old nickname was Scooter.
Rake – Greg Norton because he looks like a tool in his picture last year
Imhotep or Mummy guy – Infante because he looks like the guy from the mummy
3U – Kotchman for hitting weak grounders to 1st base
Leon, the Professional, the glider, FUGA – Garret Anderson, professional hitter and defensive glider.
Heap – McCann. His friends gave him the nickname I believe.
SWAGGA – BJones
Logan Shaver – Mr. Schafer because ESPN announcers are dumbfucks.
FYF – Frenchy you Fuck or Frenchy you Freak when he’s good.
Rev – Jorge Campillo. I forgot what this one stood for. Revelation?
Vidro – double play
Walk – something that doesn’t help you score runs
OPS guy – #44

Captain Caveman- Matty D. Given to him by NCChopper, we think
Manny I'll Cost Ya- Manny Acosta. Should be self explanatory
The Aussie- Moylan. Pretty Obvious
Nasty Nate- Nate McLouth. Not sure how he got it
Odarp- Prado spelled backwards
Jesus- sometimes used as a nickname for Tommy, although very sparingly
The Jay Hay Kid-Heyward, also used very sparingly
Anything I missed? (Oh yeah, now I feel stupid because I'm getting that this will be deleted. C'est la vie)
