kotchman struck out for the 1st out frenchy up next 2 ball 0 strikes to frenchy
cross your fingers frenchy comes thru. he needs this badly.
First bases loaded test for Francoeur
ok ok…Frenchie slammer
Francoeur up with bases loaded … and singles up middle.
It truly is a new year.
kotch has had some awwwful at bats in this series. not to worry, but he’s just looked slow at the plate
Rob from SC
great at bat by Jeff
Base hit Francouer 5-2 !!!!!
Come on, Frenchy haters!
YES! Well done, Jeff! It is a new year…
What’s going on? Frenchy up with bases loaded?
wow no DP from the French? weirrrrd
Go Frenchy! Awesome hit.
April 8th, 20094:06 pm
at least he didn’t ground into DP….come on Franceour
2 run single for frenchy braves 5 phillies 2 still 1 out
How about those wheels for McCann – First to Third!
Andrew in P-tang
jeff’s approach looks like hes back
good job by Frenchy to get the runners in without trying to pull. I think he might really be a changed batter, 5-2
18 Wheels of Love
Steve from OH
he looks like a different player this year
Brooklyn Braves Brawler
Great job Frenchy!
I’ve seen enough, Frenchy is back.
Ok I’m a believer. Go Frency fry!
A NEW FRENCHY BABY!
KEEP IT UP!!!!!!
ATTA BOY MATT
Diaz too! I’m loving this!!
Diaz hit… 7-2 BRAVORS
That’s the Frenchy we need.
That’s an extremely positive sign!!!!
To think, Blanton was the Phillies’ best pitcher this spring
i should leave again, cause my butt hurts
matty D is up.
Wow, Jeff from 1st to home?
Way to go Matt! Beat the wooses!
Love it. Pour it on!
The Braves can’t score runs!!!! Hahahahahaha!
Atta baby Matt!
April 8th, 20094:07 pm
Whoo!! Go Braves!
Diaz – 2 run double!!! 7 – 2! I hear boos! (I think I’ll drink some booze to celebrate).
Who needs Anderson, we’ve got Diaz
how bout them bravos!
esco on 3rd diaz @ the plate diaz 2 run double the braves 7 phillies 2
Diaz > Anderson
IM SLAPPIN MY HANDS HERE AT WORK TO KEEP FROM SCREAMIN!!
wow, i like the production runs, doing it without the homer this inning, that’s nice to see!
yeah, frenchy….i bet he lost 20 pounds with that monkey off this back.good for him. with larry only playing every two days, we need him and mccann both. yeah….
Diaz hit a pitch 6 inches off the inside and neck high.
wow we look good
This is great butI have a feeling this is going ot be one of those 12-10 type games in Philly.I hope i’m wrong
To paraphrase what everyone one this team has been saying, “We may not have any big sluggers, but this is a DEEP lineup….”
April 8th, 20094:08 pm
Where N8 at? Great, great AB by Frenchy. Took 2 pitches, missed on a fat change up in the zone, then went with the pitch for a single.
Slugger, I played at Chattahoochee HS. But that was before Milton built that…well I don’t know what to call it, but its huge…
p90x baby, diaz knows whats up. they should put him on their new informercial
Boo birds started $hitting yet?
what I’m most glad to see in that situation a single up the middle by Frenchy
Hoping this continues and it is a new year for the guy!
Holy Crap…this is more like the Braves we will see this year…no homers…lots of singles/doubles. McCann looked good running the bases too.
April 8th, 20094:09 pm
Where did eat phillie go?
Clerks III Please Kevin Smith
EVERYONE SING IT WITH ME…ATLANTA BRAVES BASEBALL!!!! IF YOU KNOW TBS FROM 1987 YOU KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT…
HOPE THE WORLD IS TAKING NOTICE
The other thing that’s good about this is that judging from the MLB gametracker the ump is giving Blanton a LOT of pitches off the plate.
got to get Schafer going, nothing hit hard since his 2nd at bat in game 1
good AB schafe…even though its an out
after going 0-2 to 3-2 shows good plate discipline
I saw Blanton this spring. He looked great. Good thing he doesn’t have it today. He’s letting a rookie (Schafer) effect his tempo.
April 8th, 20094:10 pm
I would DFA Anderson, and go with Brandon Jones and mostly Matt Diaz.
MFin04 – Yeah, this was what I had in mind. Now let’s see how Javy does the second time through….
schafer just missed a double to right 3-2 pitch to schafer, schafer’s
bounce to utley on to howard. a 5 run inning how bout them braves without chip and g anderson
now javy has to throw strikes..good strikes get some quick outs..try to eat up some innings for us.
April 8th, 20094:11 pm
Golden Glove – didn’t get your last comment, can you explain?
did we have an inning like that last year
At-bat resulted in an out…but much better than the first time today for Schafer.
I know they all havn’t been hits, but in three games I’ve seen Frency hit to all parts of the field…
Anyone have MLB TV? Anyone getting the Braves Broadcast?
April 8th, 20094:12 pm
nice work there by the Braves, especially Frenchy & Diaz. Glad to see the first of the Francoeur boot lickers was able to comment, Smyrna Jim. Hope your little Franceour Apologist buddies William and James come on later to get on their knees to their hero.
You can’t compete with Murder Incorporated!
That was fun!!
maybe it’s that country music affecting Kelly’s D!
Aw come on guys
Schafer has not looked good in the field today
April 8th, 20094:13 pm
This is going to be one of those games…..
javy just has to manage this game lead off triple for victorino
Ok Schafer maybe putting too much oil in his glove
no big inning Vazquez
Don just said to trade an out for a run!
Javy doesn’t look great, but better than Blanton, I guess…
i call him the cryin hawiian
April 8th, 20094:14 pm
The Reaper causing trouble on my birthday… “I don’t think that’s very nice.”
Doesn’t it seem like Victorino gets a triple against the Braves every series?
Wow, I thought that ball was just popped up. Schafer’s getting a work out and getting beat up today.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
