I don’t even think I blame Bobby anymore. Its the pitchers. They arent doing their job. It doesnt seem to matter who he puts in.
April 15th, 200910:03 pm
I know everyone’s upset, but wouldn’t it be funny if Bobby slipped on a banana peel on the way to the mound?
**Where’s Leo to run the bullpen.**
If Braves think they can win with this bullpen they are only kidding themselves. I know it’s early but other than Soriano, Carlyle, and Gonzalez the rest of this bullpen right now is very suspect. Who in the world ever thought Boyer deserved to be in the Braves bullpen needs to be fired! He is the Chris Rietsma/Dan Kolb of this Braves team. Awful, just absolutely awful for a team that has so much potential.
OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THis is the biggest load of BullSH3T I have ever seen!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We need a whole new bullpen! Boyer and O’Flaherty need to be DFA’d, Moylan needs to be sent to AAA to build arm strength. Bennett needs to be DFA’d as well. Trade Campillo for some bats. Keep Soriano and Gonzalez, bring up Medlen, Morton, Logan and whoever. Just get those losers out of our bullpen@!!!!!
Take that f-ing jersey Boyer you are a discrace to greatness fatboy.
Run Heap Run
LOL what? He’s not going anywhere. I mean really guys. Is this your first time being a Braves fan?
Can I ask one question?
I know Gonzo has had his struggles but why not at home in the 9th bring in your closer with a 1 run deficit when you know all you have left in the pen is duds?
Boyer couldn’t get out anybody on my cousins little league team. He ought to be the one sent down this weekend
“piece”…sorry, missed that day in spelling class.
Is it time for the fire Bobby chants? He runs his boys out there…but he puts them in situations to fail…just assassin. Boyer sucks…we all called it before the inning started sooo why the hell do managers put guys in like that? If he cant get out of an inning without giving up runs…why the hell do you put him in when its 5-4? Now its 7-4 this is not that complicated.
Same stuff. Different year.
April 15th, 200910:04 pm
this is horrible… i can’t watch anymore until this bullpen gets their s**t together. goodnight
Edward – granted some of the pitchers suck, but why was Boyer left in so long? A walk, hit batsman, 2 hits…was Bobby waiting for the cycle?
Just WOW!!…talk about Bullpen woes…i hope Wren watched or at least DVR this game….looks like we’re going to need some Middle Relievers come June/July…what a shame…
Cox pat Boyer on the back ! What the #@!%$ ?!!!!!!!!!!!
Blaine Boyer is a bearded lady
“They should play circus music as Boyer warms up”
And then he can come to the mound in a tiny car.
I have a thought: maybe our guys should try to throw strikes and stop hitting batters.
This is a serious question not posed out of anger or frustration.
Should the Braves seriously consider releasing Boyer? It’s early but he hasn’t even shown small flashes of flirting with effectivness.
April 15th, 200910:05 pm
E7 Diaz & GA?..Still need a LF..calling B Jones.
Ive said this before and ill say it again…Campillo is not good with runners on. He is good when he starts the inning himself.
JasonInFL (Formerly ME)
not sure how everyone else feels, but our bullpen sucks.
UMMM…………..WTF is wrong with our relief crew???? Moylan shows that hes still not back from TJ…. O’Crappy finally gets a strike out and then Boyer stinks up the place! God why do we still have Boyer??????? The kid has NEVER been good.
Thank god we have Soriano or we will give up EVERY game!
Wren better make a trade for a PROVEN arm or bring Medlen up.
These games are getting UGLY!
April 15th, 200910:06 pm
Cox. Why don’t you just give every game away. Wren, Schuerholz, or whoever. Can you please make sure Cox retires or goes away or just spontaneously combusts.
That sure as hell better have been the last we see of BB for a very VERY long time. How much more proof does Bobby and Wren need?
Well after such an impressive start our Bravos are now failing at all aspects except maybe starting pitching. but given that are starters are not exactly pitching efficiently, they are coming out by the 5th and 6th, which leaves plenty of time for our bullpen to blow it.
Garret Anderson's personal trainer
Matt Diaz is using Garrett’s glove tonight. It’s a little slick from all the linament Garrett has to use.
Here come two more runs. Campillo will not keep any of these guys from scoring.
April 15th, 200910:07 pm
“looks like we’re going to need some Middle Relievers come June/July…what a shame…”
Middle of April…early May perhaps?
Red Stripe Black Guy
Boo Blaine Boyer.
Blain Blowsitagain Boyer
why do people keep mentioning brandon jones?? He has talent but hasn’t done anything this year in AAA
So Campillo comes in throwing strikes but we can only bring him in AFTER we let boyer get shelled? WTH?
Shoulda known Boyer would not pitch well against this team
Shoulda known Boyer would not pitch well once he walked the leadoff guy
Shoulda known Boyer would not pitch well once he hit a batter
Shoulda known Boyer would not pitch well once he gave a sharp single
Shoulda Shoulda Shoulda Shoulda. When will you learn Booby Cox?
They shouldn’t release him they should trade him…if someone wanted Davies…someone should want Boyer…lol
Its a little frightening the venom that comes out when someone is down…I’ve been a big Boyer supporter- but who knows. Maybe its just not there. Kind of a drag.
April 15th, 200910:08 pm
this is my first post on the great DOB blog. I am a long time braves fan and understand that the season is veery young. However, if this is the result we will be getting from our bullpen all year its gonna be a long one. I mean is it really too much to expect guys to throw strikes. And Boyer needs to find himself the next bus out of the Atl. My 11 year old daughter would at least throw a freakin strike
How in the he** is Blaine Boyer on the Braves?!?!?!??!
We signed Chipper for three more years becasue???????
“not sure how everyone else feels, but our bullpen sucks”
Not sure how everyone feels? Have you read this blog before? You’d think our bullpen was full of amputees
I’m for circus music as Boyer’s entrance music.
Why didnt Campillo start the inning? What the heck is Bobby doing? Is he trying to lose games? Honestly…is he?
April 15th, 200910:09 pm
You have got to be kidding me.
OK, this game just slipped to utter embarrassment levels.
How in the hell did we leave spring training with this bullpen? You really have to wonder about the judgement of those who thought this was a winning bullpen.
Boyer is indeed a big tub of goo and Bobby Cox is a stubborn Donkey!
anyone got the Boyer ERA update?
Game officially over. What an ugly night. I was all ready to get double pits to chesty with it tonight, and the braves show up and do everything BUT get double pits to chesty with it.
something has to be done about Boyer. Are there really not better options? He hasn’t had a successful outing this year. . . Maybe give him another shot or two but I would hope his leash is short.
maybe we should just start playing circus music when the starter leaves the game… this is unreal… okay… good-night for real now
April 15th, 200910:10 pm
For this team to make the Playoffs….they’re missing at LEAST…two or three quality arms in the ‘Pen…other than Soriano, Carlyle and Gonzo…everyone is worthless except Moylan who just needs arm strength(AAA may do some good)…
time to start assuming: the braves will be 5-4 after this sweep and probably the best place to go to get back on track is Pittsburgh
I know Wren made a lot of moves this off season…but how was this pen not addressed? This is pi$$ poor. Tough to watch.
April 15th, 200910:11 pm
VABRAVESFAN, who you got better? just get someone.
it really makes me wonder Guys…how bad does the bullpen need to perform before moves are actually made?
Wow! This pen could make a preacher cuss!
This is already the same old Braves of late. Chipper is gonna be hurt every other week, cant beat good teams at home, cox is gonna keep running the same people out of the bullpen that cant get the job done. I have been saying this for several years and i am gonna say it again, Boyer sucks and its that simple!!
Infuriating. Can we tar and feather Boyer?
Intramural Team is Aggressive
N Nine: I believe that’s 27.00. Words can’t express how horrendous that is.
Schafer makes a bad play there should have held the runner…but instead lets him go to third…which ends up costing the Braves a run. Campillo is great when he starts innings…he isnt good in the middle…why then would Bobby bring him in to fail? does he watch the Braves games? CAMPILLO HAS TO START INNINGS!!!
Why do we never get to be on the other side of games like this?
heres why we dont have a good bullpen.. because we have 2 idiots running this team…. First is Frank Wren… congrats on another pathetic job… you improved one area.. the bullpen just sucks and no offense … we were in this game until bobby cox started touching it.. congrats .. busted wide open Frank wren and bobby cox please go byye byeeee ……
That’s funny…I can sum up Chip Caray in one word – suck
April 15th, 200910:12 pm
From the looks of it, the Braves never deserved to be tied for first. This team absolutely sucks. Its either try to hit a homer every time or if that fails the bullpen just totally puts the game out of reach.
Wow….a 5 run 9th by our incredible bullpen. I know its early, but we need to shake things up in the bullpen.
I hope that the next time the Braves need to make a roster move, they designate Boyer for assignment, either trade him or reassign him to the minors, to fix his mechanics and throw strikes for a change.
April 15th, 200910:13 pm
Hey DOB, don’t know if it has been covered here, but on TV they announced that in 20+ innings by our relievers 40+ batters have reached base via either hit, walk or HBP… That is UNREAL!!! (and pathetic)
What the hell is this clown Boyer doing on the team with all of the pitching depth we have? Bring up Acosta now!
Bring up the kids for the bullpen
HOW IS THAT AN ERROR ON MCCANN??? Wow…I couldn’t be more t’d…I need to vent, but I’m too flabbergasted for words…
The fish may be the team to beat this year…they look good.
I feel I need to apologize to Boyer too…he didnt give up any homers…to Blaine…I’m sorry.
April 15th, 200910:14 pm
Soriano looks good, Gonz ok so far but a little iffy, Carlyle looks good, O’Lefty is hit or miss, Moylan should be good in a couple more weeks, Campizie not too bad, (Boyer needs to go) . . but just what if we would have given the 1mil we gave to Glavine to Ohman. Wren has to be looking back at letting Ohman go as a mistake.
hows long until Medlin gets called up?
Jorge Campillo's song
I didn’t start the fire…
Maybe Cox is trying to tell Frank Wren something?
What’s wrong with Gonzalez?
April 15th, 200910:15 pm
Gotta wonder how long its gonna be until Bobby starts pullin folks outa the stands. They may get hit around some but anything is better than this crap
Describes this game perfectly
Frank from KS
Ya know, all your *Double Pits To Chesty* sounds gay and IMO….is annoying to read.
Well…the last blog was named Braves go Fishing…and from the looks of it, they haven’t found the right bait to use. (Lol)
chip off the ol block
wow bullpen gave it up again, the D was good, the starting was pretty good, our offense was atleast producing but now we’re back tot he Braves of 07… HORRIBLE bullpen… i know its early but this is unacceptable… moves need to be made, or something, AND WHY WASNT GONZO BROUGHT IN?? instead we used the same bunch that blew our sweep against the phils..
April 15th, 200910:16 pm
This team won’t contend with this bullpen…and without another big bat in the lineup for the 40+ games Chip will miss…GA wasn’t the answer. If he is, we were asking the wrong question. I don’t think we are that far off, but as everyone knows; spending money on Tommy G instead of the bullpen was a mistake.
Sooo i got one Reliever who is “lights out” on our own team…..Schafer was 11-0 with a 0.71 ERA, striking out 140 batters in 76 innings during his senior year in high school…..Just saying… lol
jared might want to reconsider that, acosta gave up a 2 run homer today
April 15th, 2009
Well, Boyer is consistant every game.”
HAHAHHAAHHA God this is sad but so true!
ga is warmin’ up
We need Ned Yost as manager, Blaine GOO Boyer needs to be shipped off, and new owners!
P.S. Can we please get rid of that damn cow in left field?!?!?!
Boyer ERA 40.50. And thats exactly why he shouldnt pitch a whole game.
But no seriously, what happened to ST Boyer.
Send Bobby to AAA to learn how to manage…and release Boyer…seriously…just cut him from the team…you dont need any special day or move to cut a guy right?
Blaine Boyer’s ERA is now: 40.50.
April 15th, 200910:17 pm
Maybe we can still trade for Swisher.
MADARCHOD Garret ANDERSON !!!!
What is all the complaining about? If you have been following the Braves for the last 3 years you are seeing the EXACT same thing that happens night after night. Bullpen sux, Cox makes STUPID managing moves, and front office does NOTHING about it. SOS. Cox has to go. I don’t care how much he is revered in this town. He is horrible and we still put up with the SOS.
What an embarrassment. Two weeks and two embarrassing games by our bullpen. Braves front office, please, please make a statement and send some of these clowns down.
Everybody chill! I got this!
Whats cox trying to say to Wren. Get a damn bull pen and lf.
N Nine: I believe that’s 27.00. Words can’t express how horrendous that is
Actually you must be thinking Moylan’s 20.25!!! Boyer 2 x worse @ 40.50 Yes that is correct!! …and we lose
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
