If anyone is around a TV and computer today, and wants to give play by play…. I would appreciate it. No TV here in the office, and they block the game channel stuff on MLB and ESPN…. apparently it makes people unproductive.
February 26th, 200912:58 pm
Any word on the Braves signing our pre-arb guys?
DOB, what kind of bike do you have? How long have you been riding?
February 26th, 200912:59 pm
Hey buffalo fan, have you tried channelsurfing.net ? The game has not come on yet be other stuff works on that site
February 26th, 20091:01 pm
That is blocked here to Daniel. They apparently want us to be productive….. they haven’t caught onto the AJC site yet though.
February 26th, 20091:02 pm
Love the line up. Esco should hit 5th every day.
Hey that site is not working for me yet, anybody else getting the game?
February 26th, 20091:03 pm
not yet daniel Im still crossing my fingers since Gameday sux…
channelsurfing is tryin to get a password out of me, dont know what thats all about
Not working for me either. What was that espn360 link?
February 26th, 20091:05 pm
same here ship, but they didn’t want it for the soccer
February 26th, 20091:06 pm
This one should work for all of you.
doggone it… this really stinks, my team and our #1 prospect are playing and I can’t get any radio or video, without paying mlb.
February 26th, 20091:07 pm
DOB – Heard on Sirius Radio that today would’ve been Johnny Cash’s birthday. Surprised no Man in Black song. Enjoy your daily thoughts.
Daniel, the zero-to-three non-arb guys signed contracts this morning. Announcement should come shortly. But really, no drama there.
matt02 do you have to use one of their internet explorers?
February 26th, 20091:08 pm
Buffalo NY braves fan, On the last blog, we talked about the best pizza joints here in GA. But NOTHING beats a Ted’s hot dog with their famous hot sauce (with a Loganberry to drink). And for dessert, why not head down Sheridan for a delicious soft-serve cone? My grandparents used to live in Buffalo so we visited often. Is Bocci pizza still open? They make a really good pie.
Thanks Dave, but Dusty asked that one.
Hope you have heard AC Newman’s cover of Take on Me… very cool
February 26th, 20091:09 pm
BraveTiger, every day is a celebration of The Man In Black on this blog (but I gotta be honest, I forget it was his birthday).
Damn, it’s too late now. Hey, we used “The Man In Black” a week or so ago, and “Big River” recently.
Happy Birthday to The Real Thing.
I have had it for over a year but if I recall I had to download something just not sure.I am on internet explorer.
I am watching it now though, so it works.
February 26th, 20091:11 pm
Here is the direct link the game is playing on.
February 26th, 20091:12 pm
Crap, I live outside ESPN360 area apparently…man channelsurfing you let me down

good to know Suzi Q is going to be there to greet us when we go to the game against Panama and the Yanks next we.Say what u will about the girl but she is fairly easy on the eyes!
Looking forward to seeing Tommy Hanson today.
February 26th, 20091:15 pm
Do we have a volunteer for the play by play? DOB? Robert? Anyone?
I can’t get espn 360 due to the server we use. I got nothing…. This really stinks
February 26th, 20091:16 pm
Frenchie! Where U at that should’ve been caught! Come On
stros 2-0 still in 1st
I vote for Matt02 to bring us the goods
Campillo is getting knocked around something fierce here in first inning. Hard-hit balls, bloops, a little of everything. Three runs in, four hits, still only two outs….
BraveTiger, thanks for the reminder. Went back into the blog and added a little something for J.R. (Cash)….

I hate ESPN’s coverage of the Bravos + Jorge Campillo looks terrible.
3-0 astros going to the bottom 1st
what?!! bf you gotta give us more than that
Nasty first Inning 3-0 stros…
Anyone listening to the Astros feed? Are the two commentators at completely different volumes? The play by play is like twice as loud as the color.
DOB, let those guys know their audio sucks.
Campillo 26 pitches, 14 strikes in first inning. It’s over, at least. Braves down 3-0 headed to second.
Looking bad fast. Astro up 3
February 26th, 20091:18 pm
going to bottom half 2-0 stros
This guy needs to cancel his appearance with Mexico in the WBC and work on throwing a fastball.
Oh yea We’ve Got Steve Phillips doing color. Get ready to hear about his Past GM experiences with the Mets
Campillo will be fine, get a few WBC starts…
I like him in long relief
I’m having trouble getting Gameday Audio off of the Braves site. It keeps trying to get me to purchase, instead of just logging in an listening. Is anyone else having problems?
my bad 3-0
February 26th, 20091:19 pm
matt, here is the message I get when trying to use espn360:
ESPN360.com is available at no charge to fans who receive their high-speed internet connection from an ESPN360.com affiliated internet service provider. ESPN360.com is also available to fans that access the internet from U.S. college campuses and U.S. military bases.
I’ve got the game on tv but was curious… apparently you have a setup that works for you, but I don’t think it’s freely available to everyone.
And Campillo… wow – I KNOW it’s the first game, but a 68 mph curveball, followed by a couple of low-80’s fastballs… he’s junkballing, big time.
Hey toga where are you getting that?
February 26th, 20091:20 pm
Lol, these guys are brutal on A. Jones
Hanson’s beginning to stretch in bullpen, but isn’t throwing yet, so no, he won’t be coming in early because of Campillo’s high pitch count in first….
Schafer leading off, goes to 2-2 count against Oswalt, then strikes out swinging at a 91-mph fastball
Damn! The Wizard (Oswalt) Just took Schafer to School, You Can tell its the second game by the hitters timing…
February 26th, 20091:21 pm
I feel like the last kid at school, left by his parents…
everyone else is getting the game
Schafer had the deer in the head lights look
lol you got it dob
Daniel, I still have my MLB.tv subscription from last year. Nick was kind enough to inform me yesterday that it’s still working.
February 26th, 20091:22 pm
I’d rather not see this.2 strikeouts
February 26th, 20091:23 pm
It sucks being stuck at work when the braves are on national tv.
3 straight K’s after falling into a 3-0 hole…..man, this looks promising
Thats right, I remeber now. Not sure which ones that use but I have AT&T. It has been over a year since I downloaded it and couldn’t remeber. I tried.
Good the Wizard (Oswalt) Looked in Midseason form…! Hitters will catch up in 2 weeks
Some use the ground hog to predict Spring – I prefer to predict spring’s arrival by how Chipper looks. Looks like we got a while.
lucky dog toga
February 26th, 20091:24 pm
Ouch, struck out Chipper too.
Of course… thanks!
February 26th, 20091:25 pm
1-0 Mets over Marlins bottom of the first. Castillo, another hit, stolen base, run scored.
Look out Rickey Henderson.
Well, that’s a great start. Campillo gets rocked and Roy O blows ‘em away.
For $110 a year, you can be a lucky dog too Daniel.
Anyone want to tell Mr. Oswalt that this is just spring training and not game 7 of the NLCS!!!!!!!!!!
I am with you tomahawkin’…
It is all about how Hanson looks today
well that was an outstanding inning
February 26th, 20091:26 pm
Mets, Braves, Yanks – All on the tube at once today. What recession?
Oswalt strikes out the side, including Chipper to end inning (after Schafer and K.J.)
Oswalt picking up where he left off last year, apparently. I was just looking at his numbers from last season, had forgotten just how dominant he was in second half (or longer, actually).
He was 12-3 with a 2.29 ERA and three complete games in his last 17 starts (beginning June 30), with a .215 opp average and 90 strikeouts/22 walks in 114 innings. had 10 quality starts in his last 11 games.
I’m with ya
I have the game recording at home, i guess i can fast forward through the first inning
is it me or are they playing those annoying sounds at Dark Star?
campillo is like a hitting machine
February 26th, 20091:27 pm
Rocking BB’s off Campillo!!!
yeah, I will save my buck ten. the mlb gets enough of my money already.
maybe Selig should take a couple million in a pay cut to let everyone see or hear the spring training games
Damn! that ball was smoked, Thats two balls that should’ve been outs, and probably be in midseason
Well, BC’s had his obligatory look at CAMPILLO as he pitches his way out of MLB and back to the MEXICAN Leagues. OSWALT and CAMPILLO combine to take the heat off HANSON. When he’s in it won’t matter. He can relax and do his thing. GO TOMMY.
February 26th, 20091:28 pm
I can just hear Skip saying “and the hits keep coming…”
February 26th, 20091:29 pm
you know Bud, Roger Goodell took at 20% paycut this year, and his league is in a lot better shape than yours..
Good discussion On ESPNY suprisingly, about how the economy will affect teams getting rid of large contracts, should be interesting come July with the way that the economy is heading
Jeezzzz, Campillo is throwing batting practice fastballs while Oswalt is throwing like he is in mid-season form. Sheesh! I know its spring training but gosh, lets at least do something right, lol.
The Astros might be tired from running around the bases before Hanson gets up.
February 26th, 20091:30 pm
campillo is ass cheeks gettin’ outta there
Where is Robert? He did a nice job yesterday.
c’mon guys Oswalts one of the best pitchers in the game, and Jorge is our long relief at best.
February 26th, 20091:32 pm
is everyone stunned? what is happening?
Campillo’s gettin a little squeezed by the ump, but other than that, he looks pretty aweful. You talk about timing, Oswalt’s just not giving us a chance so far.
DOB — To we read anything into the batting order today, or is it just Bobby shuffling things around for the spring?
Also, really bummed that Neko’s coming to Savannah at the beginning of April and I’ll be out of town. If you or anyone’s interested, her new yet-to-be-released solo album is up on NPR for a free listen. Sounds strong.
c’mon Campillo, get Berkman and keep your ERA under 100
Daniel – The NBA took out a line of credit today for $150 mil to help out some teams that are struggling to make ends meet right now due to drops in attendance etc.
I’m thinking all sports owners are scared to death right now. It’s all about discretionary spending – and there ain’t gonna be a lot of that going on for a while.
The score hardly matters. Its the second Spring Training game.
It’s not going to be the same without Skip and Pete. I can hear that too propp…
February 26th, 20091:33 pm
nice diving play kotchman
Nice Stab! Kotch! Campillo has looked a litter better over the last 10 pitches
Robert must be back at work today with the rest of us.
Terrific defensive play by Casey Kotchman, going to his right and to his knees to stop a hot grounder, then tossing to first for third out to get Campillo out of a jam.
There you go Kotchman
Nice diving stop by Kotchman, out of the inning.
February 26th, 20091:34 pm
nice dig Kotchman
oswalt looks dirty
Is Hanson pitching?
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
