Awright, welcome, and good evening to the baseball game. I'm skip Carey, and with Keith van Weiren [?] for another game between the Atlanta braves and the Chicago cubs. The braves are featuring a
Are outstanding cast. (arf!) we got a wonderful cast of characters here. He's a home run interim rbi leader for the year, what do you think?

Well uh, I don't know what the problem is with these braves this year they've really been having trouble with one run games, on Sundays for some reason I don't know what it is, what do you think.

I don't care if he never gets back.
Swung on it and missed...
