We get it. You were right. Quit shoving it down everyones throat
The Braves just want to go ahead and get that first one run win of the year out of the way.
Does anyone else feel some trepidation about the effectiveness of our bullpen?
Is Chipper available to pitch?
He sux and needs to be sent down!! He was lousy last year and they blamed it on overworked!

Ou est le bull pen???
OMG I was kidding when I said this would end up 12-10.
THREE WALKED IN RUNS IN A ROW???
Its one thing to get hit hard. Its another to just give it to them like this.
THIS IS CRAZY!!!!!!!
Wow, they haven’t hit the ball all series.. let them hit it man.
CAN’T ANYBODY THROW A STRIKE ANY MORE?!!!!!!?!!!!?!!!!!
Boyer did the same thing last year when we blew those big leads. He’s not ready for this spot.
we did say 12-10 ball game right? ….just hope it’s Braves 12 and Phillies 10…oy!
LOOKS like the braves are going to lose. This season going to be like 06 i guess.
Do not let him throw another pitch
Hmmm…wow…10-8 after a 9-3 lead….
April 8th, 20095:59 pm
Yes, that was a d*ck move by me. I understand that scouts’ opinions are posted online.
Sorry for that.
The gametracker is showing pitches in the strike zone as balls. Is it that bad?
I hate this, even I can throw a strike
“Cox looks like he’s grumbling to himself” as he walks to the dugout–yeah, I bet…I am too…
I hope we aren’t just trying to prove we can win a one-run game….
With this Bull Pen, I am concerned about a 20 run lead!!!!!!
so is this the ump not calling strikes or us literally can’t throw them?
Be gone to AAA vile GOO.
Relax yall…damn….it aint the bottom of the 9th
April 8th, 20096:00 pm
walked in 4 runs
Don;t you have to bring in Soriano here?
Moylan gets a pass, but Boyer is garbage. He has always sucked…I never understood what they see in this clown.
This. is. awful. Campillo. Please get the double play.
9 pitchers in this game so far, and we aren’t even through 7
April 8th, 20096:01 pm
I can not believe this…
This game is so big already. 3game lead would be sweet
you have to bring in someone who can throw strikes. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a situation where 2 guys both couldn’t get the ball over the plate.
That’s just bizarre.
‘Cobb County Dorks’ are always right.
Please don’t take that too seriously.
I would rather see 5 consecutive home runs. These guys are pitching spinelessly. DOB, in a poll of fans the bullpen was voted the biggest weakness of the team. Where are you coming from.
We needed one inning to bridge the gap between Vazquez and Soriano and Gonzalez. 3 pitchers have combined for 1 out and 5 runs.
minnesota jacket, literally can’t throw them
UnBELIEVABLE. 10-3 and now 10-8. How many hits this inning. two I think. We are in deep kimshi if they can’t throw strikes with a 7 run lead. What are they going to do in a one run game!!
Why the f**k would you start the inning with your lefty reliver…Why not bring in Carlyle who was lights out in spring training. The game is 10-3 and he is your long man…Let him throw 3 innings and you are done…
This is worse than watching a train wreck.It’s like watching a school bus crash.
Walk Rollins when he has an .071 batting average. sheese!!
Just looking at O’flaherty’s numbers with seattle it puzzles me y he is the braves only lefty.
a first pitch strike….YAY

What the F*** is going on here?!?!?!
Paper bag over head time.
Make that 4 pitchers for one out and 6 runs. How many more?
Would a loss here ruin the firt two wins?
Throw the &^%#$ ball right down the middle! I’d rather lose on a grand slam than consecutive walks!
the pen is looking awesome, the phils have been so stiffled the last 3 batters didn’t even lift their bat off of their shoulders.
This is definitely frustrating…Too eerily similiar to meltdowns of last year and the year prior… 7 Run lead? Come on guys!! I hate to watch us beat ourselves by not throwing the ball over the freaking plate!
this is FN unbelievable
April 8th, 20096:03 pm
Come on, Bravos.
Someone stop the bleeding.
Well. SOS. Looks like its going to be just like last year. With goofball Cox trying to manage an inept bullpen. So much for early season optimism. This will be the beginnging of the end.
In the words of Homer Simpson, “Sweet merciful crap!”
Unbelievable! I can’t believe that Major League pitchers can’t throw a strike.
get out of this BAD inning
at least he didn’t walk…
On ESPN gametracker, the predicted winner has gone from 98% Braves to 57% Braves – THIS INNING!
10 -8 and only one out. Here come da Phils. Vazquez and Moylan are total loosers. You guys are in trouble now. Hah hah. what you get for having all them injury prone old geezers in your lineup. like Larry the fairy
If the braves can get out out the inning down 2 it would be amazing at this point. man.
4 pitchers. 10 batters. 9 baserunners. 6 runs. 3 on. ONE out.
You guys are all idiots…its three games after Spring…relax! Yes we’re blowing it, no it’s not the end of the road…do you think our offense is gonna kill like it has every game? Or are SP is gonna roll with a .50 ERA all year? Relax!
It would not ruin the first two games, but definitely deflates the overall start of the season excitement!
At least Campillo threw a strike.
Utley and Howard…oh boy.
April 8th, 20096:04 pm
Bobby needs to go yell at someone
Great – MLB doing a live look-in right now.
Hope our starters quickly get in shape to pitch 9 innings every night. We have s***t for relievers!
You would have to wonder with 7 run lead whether the BP coach didn’t keep the relievers focused on the game. Sure doesn’t look like they were.
lmao this is funny
10-9…here we go… i can’t belileve this junk.
I bet Howard hits a grand slam after Utley walks
….to 58% Philly.
i cant believe this
Talk about a meltdown.
Im going to start cutting my wrists if they lose this game
got me so mad i can’t type!
Someone needs to go yell at Bobby!
that was strike 2! terrible call
This umpire needs to be fired.
April 8th, 20096:05 pm
holy fn jeezus
Tie. Game. Unbelievable.
Can anyone throw a strike?!
OMG this is nuts….
The phillies announcers are commenting on the tight strike zone, they can’t believe Bobby is still in the game.
Nice. A walk to make it 10-10.
walk in the tying run—but it was a strike.
Now he called Mac and KJ out on that and now its a ball?
CALL: Atlanta Braves
“We’ll serve it up on a silver platter with free passes!”
5 walks and a hit batsman. 10-10. @#$!
Ball 1…way to start it
I’d love to see a Grand Slam! Better than dieing from 10,000 paper cuts!
Bobby needed to bring in your shutdown guy in this spot not Campilo unreal
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
