Who should I cast as “melissa” in my next movie: Rosanne Barr or Whoopie Goldberg?
April 15th, 20099:46 pm
DOB, any idea why David Ross left his last rehab game after 3 AB’s? Or was it just to get an early start on heading back to Atlanta?
McFann here is your shot!
Chip Caray doesn’t even know what inning it is. Not very double pits to chesty.
April 15th, 20099:47 pm
McCann please do something that does not involve creating an out :/
I was a teenage Francophile
Dang. Now Frenchy can’t strike out to end the game.
April 15th, 20099:49 pm
Glad to see the Escobar single, but down a run in the 8th, you’d like your batters to work the count at least a bit, wouldn’t you? That’s two of three batters swinging at the first pitch.
Then again, things like bunting and situational hitting have never been a hallmark of Bobby’s teams. The man does love the 3-run homer approach.
Here we go, Diaz.
ABravesFan: Thanks for that tutorial. Sure thought Schafer was the cause of the bases-loaded walk Moylan issued.
(Can someone point out a stat to you without you deducing that that stat is being cited as THE problem? Just checking)

Lets go Marlin killer!

Eric from MO re: your 9:44 p.m.
Well….ya never can be sure these days what people know and don’t know as far as history of the game, etc.
I mean, shoot….there’s a guy I work with can’t remember what year he graduated HS. He figured it wasn’t something he needed to know for the rest of his life.
I was like :>O “Your kidding?”
yes. i’m watching tonight. kotchman is hitting 269 (and that is after going 1-3 tonight), which means his avg coming into tonight was not 280. corner fielding positions (1B, 3B, RF/LF) should have better production than that. I’m not saying he is a bad player, but we need a hitting 1st baseman, not someone just known for his D. all I’m saying is bat him 8th.
Diaz did start tonight. But i wouldn’t call Diaz the starter in left, would you eric? GA was not brought in to platoon.
Man, after reading all your comments, it’s a shame you guys don’t play for the Braves. We would’ve just mercy ruled the Marlins.
April 15th, 20099:51 pm
who is more aggressive? Frenchy or Diaz? They could be unknown twins
Three pitches, seriously? Wow diaz.
That was worse than a Frenchy at-bat.
All swings, all the time.
Absolutely horrible AB by Diaz. Definitely NOT double pits to chesty.
horrible at-bat by diaz… not even close
April 15th, 20099:52 pm
The art of teabaggin'
Matt Diaz needs to get double pits to the teabags.
A 3-pitch friggin strike out!
Where are all you Matt Diaz fans at now?
Yep…definitely a “fish killer”.

Steve from OH
All this swinging has made me diazzy. I better sit down.
I really liked the Braves chances with Diaz hitting in that spot.
Of course I really liked the Detroit Lions chances of making the playoffs this past NFL season.
I have to wonder if Chipper hurt his finger signing his new contract. This team isnt going anywhere.
bf braves fan
Yeah…and he walked! That was amazing…
Matty, Matty, Matty…that was not good…
GA = GOD AWFUL
April 15th, 20099:54 pm
MOTHER EFFIN SERIOUSLY???????????? 2 sliders that were nowhere near the zone and he strikes out? WTF?!?!?!?
Jackie Robinson stole home 19 times in his career. Wow. Maybe Escobar should have tried.
They promptly show the defensive play right after that rough AB. Thinking positive
Oh, and here comes Boyer to completely put the game out of reach. JUST GREAT!!!
Blaine Boyer is in the house
April 15th, 20099:55 pm
Run for your lives.
Blaine Homerun Boyer in….hope he can get three outs…come on Blaine!
I think Andruw looks better at the outside slider than Diaz JC
Matt Diaz is not clutch. Never was, great batting avg., where are the RBI’s?
April 15th, 20099:56 pm
Visions of Francouer circa 2008 or Andruw 2006-2007,on that at bat by Diaz
Outside slider was Andruw’s bread-and-butter
Great job Boyer.
Garret Anderson's personal trainer
GA = generally achy.
Nice work Boyer, you stink
Hmm the bullpen walking someone….lol…is this really happening?
Blaine Boyer is a Tub of Goo
Won’t be a “one swing game” in the bottom of the ninth by the time the GOO is done.
JasonInFL (Formerly ME)
let’s get our first come back win of the year…can’t lose 2 in a row to the fish!!!
Wouldn’t you know it. Blaine Boyer would come in. Nice “Hall of Fame” tactics there, Booby!
April 15th, 20099:57 pm
WOW so there is one guy in the bullpen that can throw strikes.
blaine f’n boyer
Hey look, the Braves bullpen walked a batter. I’ve never seen that before.
think garret pinch hits for jordan?
same buch moylan bennett and boyer. all of them need to get it together!!!!!!!!
ARE YOU SERIOUS BOYER? OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG
ummm…how in the h e double hockey sticks can our entire team not throw strikes? I don’t get it.
And you guys said Boyer would give up a homerun. Suckers
Blaine Boyer's Mom
Blaine, son, you suck…you need to come home to mommy.
Wow. Just. Wow.
How can a so-called reliever come in and so consistently issue either a hit or walk to the first guy he faces. How many times is that this season for Boyer? How often over hjis last, say, 15-20 appearances?
April 15th, 20099:58 pm
Boyer a walk and a hit batsman. Nice work buddy boy. Way to NOT get double pits to chesty.
Boyer should be sent down after this game…bring up someone that can throw the ball over the plate.
Just as i FRICKING thought, Blaine ‘I suck massively’ Boyer walks the first batter he faces. I have no faith in this team when trailing going into the bottom of the ninth. Who wants to make a bet that the Marlins pitcher will throw a total of 6 pitches, or less in the 9th? Anybody?
Moylan WILL get better once he gets some innings under his belt. Being out a year has him searching for his command. He’ll find it.
Boyer WILL NOT get better.
WTF was Soriano taking out??? Cox, you’re killing us!!! Oh great, now Boyer not only walks Ugly, but hits Herpes!
Blaine Boyer is known for his pinpoint accuracy
Far and wide.
no bullpen problems here! geez…
Looks like we should’ve traded for Swisher after all. At least he can stop the bleeding
Boyer definately has something on that old fat ugly stupid fool Bobby Cox. Nobody but Cox is stupid enough to put Boyer in ANY game.
KP55 I’m still here and I still think Diaz should start over GA, especially against lefties. I’d rather see Diaz out in left. i know he sucked tonight, but even still. he usually kills the marlins.
Don’t you wish my 2 errors were the only thing you had to be mad at tonight?!
lets see here .. Bobby blows another game by leaving a pitcher in way too long and the marlins are gonna win this game on a walk given my moylan. the braves bullpen MO.. give the opposing team free passes dont make them earn it and give them runs.. thats how the marlins will win this game… and now BOYER.. wow walks the first guy and now runners on 1st and 2nd.. nobody out way to go bobby ….. wow can bobby get anymore pathetic… and diaz what a awful at bat
Funny how the “GOO” shows up right when Boyer is up pitching
April 15th, 20099:59 pm
BOO THE GOO!
our BP sucks.
I think Blaine’s career might hinge on the rest of this inning.
Boyer, you freeking suck, please go back to wherever you came from.
I’m guessing this is Boyer’s last game here
Boyer’s fighting it. He looked down the entire time McDowell was out to the mound.I wonder if he has any confidence left.
Why can’t the Braves have inexpensive relievers that are good? Every other team in the majors has them. The Braves haven’t had one in a while. Chris Hammond?
An early season trade for a reliever might have to happen.
chalk up another LOSS.. Blaine Boyer just sucks. please fire bobby cox and get rid of boyer.. come on…..
April 15th, 200910:00 pm
I wish spotts, I wish.
I actually feel like i could come in for the braves and get three outs by simply pitching to contact
Boyer please dont give up two more I need this save for my fantasy team.
Eric from MO
Well I have defended Boyer, but I must admit, I may be wrong. I dont get it, he has the stuff. Time to cut your losses and let him go.
Way to NOT get double pits to chesty.
Nope. Goo never gets double pits to chesty with it. The Goo is the opposite of double pits to chesty.
Breaking News:Boyer sent down for JoJO
What the #$@# is Bobby doing? Honestly…Boyer sucks….should not still be in the game…but Bobby runs him out there to give up runs…makes no sense at all. Getting 2 runs in the ninth is tough…1 not as tough…look at the game against the Phillies…Diaz went yard off of Lidge…but of course we gave up a run the inning earlier…if we have a chance in the game dont put Boyer in…its not that hard. He blows.
April 15th, 200910:01 pm
Well, Boyer is consistant every game.
DOB, how much of the bullpen struggles can the braves blame on Roger mcdowell? I understand moylan and soriano are coming back from injuries, but the bullpen isn’t in very good shape and it hasn’t changed since the beginning of the season.
At what point do we just pull the plug on the Blaine Boyer Experience? this is atrocious. I try not to slam bobby- they guy does have a few wins under his belt, but geez he can be stubborn. The kid has shown nothing for the last half-season plus and keeps getting trotted out there.
Blaine Boyer is a large sack of frass
The “boo the goo” movement is taking off faster than “teabagging”.
People are angry, darn it!
What is everyone surprised about. Cox has been mishandling the bullpen for the last 3 years or more. And he continues to do so. MY GOD. Please retire you old #$%$^$&^$%&&%*((#(#)@)#
How can one player get hurt so often as Chipper does? Its cute that he will retire a brave but why cant he actually play and not get hurt. Thats more frustrating to me than the pin
Kevin in Chatty
Blaine Boyer is the worst insert explicit pitcher on the Braves squad. We have no chance to win games if he pitches with the game on the line.
In other news, I think 100 games is realistic for Chipper this year. I think that long term deal was premature.
Ok, maybe Im a little mad but Boyer SUCKS
April 15th, 200910:02 pm
Congratulations on losing your job mr. Boyer.
How bad does he have to be??
This bullpen sucks on so many different levels. Why in the hell was Ohman not signed??? Oh yeah, cheap @sses at Libery Media wouldn’t anti up!
The Goo is the opposite of double pits to chesty. GOO I’m on your side
Boyer = Peice of Garbage. How long can we keep this no talent a$$ clown on the dadgum roster???
They should play circus music as Boyer warms up
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
