This week’s edition contains the meatiness of the St. Louis Cardinals, steroids in the Hall of Fame and Nyjer being Nyjer.

But we’re not chopped liver. There’s really no soft spot in the lineup, there’s no breaks, and that leads to mistakes and that leads to big innings.

Lance Berkman doesn’t think the Cardinals are chopped liver. I happen to agree, I’d say they’re more of a high-grade paté. Yes, I am determined to have a Lance Berkman quote every week, thank you for asking.

Baseball is fun. We can take it too serious sometimes, this is something more than just baseball. That right-field section are here every game, they cheer for every (A’s player). They are diehards. I just enjoy them out there. It’s a lot of fun. You don’t get to build relationships like that every day.

Seriously, Jeff Francouer is all kinds of awesome. As a human being, I mean. Not so much as a professional baseball player.

It will be good to get back to Atlanta and play in front of the home fans, who we haven’t seen in a long time. The home opener is always a special occasion no matter when it comes.

Chipper Jones’ statement about Atlanta home openers is absolutely true. Unless you play for the Hawks. Or the Thrash … unless you play for the Hawks.

You have stretches where you play six games and things don’t go your way, then you have stretches where you play six games and everything goes your way. Six games is a ridiculously small sample size.

Bobby Valentine reads Getting Blanked! Okay, Bobby Valentine probably doesn’t read Getting Blanked, it’s more likely that he’s just heard of common sense. Still…

Guillen has lived in this country for more than a quarter of a century, and he knows what “I love Fidel Castro’’ means in English.

I’m not sure that Greg Couch and the American media know what ‘I love Fidel Castro’ means in English and if they do, I’m not sure they know what context is. Look at the entire quote of what Ozzie said, he doesn’t love the man, he respects him for his ability to survive in the face of improbable odds. To quote David Cross – “Know why I think that? Because that’s what he fucking said.”

He’s been pitching for a quarter of a century. I don’t think I have any words of wisdom that are going to be real overwhelming.

Jim Tracy acknowledges that Jamie Moyer is old. Hey, did you hear that Jamie Moyer is old? Jamie Moyer is old, guys. How about that Jamie Moyer? Boy, he sure is old.

It’s a museum, if you want to have some notation on their plaque that indicates that they were either judged to have used performance enhancing substances or accused of having done that, so be it.

Michael Weiner then went on to say “but if you gambled then you can forget about getting into the Hall of Fame. Things of historical record have absolutely no place in a museum. I mean, it’s not like we could put a notation or something that indicates you were found to have gambled on baseball.”

I think as the team continues to win and does the things to bring the fans to the ballpark – which is, essentially, winning – I think we’ll have a bigger following and a better atmosphere and the stadium will be a place people come to enjoy a game of baseball.

Aw, that’s adorable. Jayson Werth thinks he still plays for the Blue Jays.

I need to have more patience. I’m striking out a lot, but I’m working to resolve it. I’m a little bit impatient. I like to swing at the ball. I’m still a little bit anxious at the plate. Playing every day should take care of it.

Somewhere in Nevada, Travis Snider is reading this Yoenis Cespedes quote and nodding sadly.

Okay, I know that these aren’t technically quotes. Actually, there’s nothing technical about it, they’re not quotes, they’re pictures but…they’re just…Nyjer Morgan is the best. And still pretty weird.
