Freddie Freeman is feeling much better

Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman partially dislocated his kneecap yesterday. Which sounds utterly horrifying. It hurts just to type those words.  First reports had him missing a couple of weeks.

Well, Freeman showed up to camp this morning without crutches and said that he was feeling much better.  Still sore, but he hopes to get back into action relatively soon and doesn’t expect to miss much time.  It’s not clear when, but the suggestion is days as opposed to weeks.

Which, considering he’s one of the, like, three guys on the team who can hit a little, might be helpful.

    He hit last year you better hope he don’t get Heyward disease this year.

    On crutches yesterday, better today? He must have done like his namesake and said the magic words to become Captain Marvel Jr. (Yes, I know this is obscure, but every time I see his name, that is my first thought.)

    Damn and the injuries begin. It’s going to be a long season down here in GA.

    There’s no way that picture is Freddie Freeman.

      I’m pretty sure that is Cody Johnson.

        In fact, this is at least the second time Craig has used this picture incorrectly:

        This leads me to believe that he is not a Braves fan, but is instead a big fat phony.
