Bobby is trying to help the Kid get out of his funk, open a hole for him, etc.
Boyer LOVES Cox
i know, what was bobby thinking there? this team has issues….from the top down. looks like we are in for another long season. great pitching…horrible offense. soon as we get good offense then we will have horrible starting pitching. this team is full of flat out chokers. this team is garbage….
April 18th, 20091:46 pm
The Braves are going to score 2 runs this inning…
Man Jo-Jo is looking Good, and he’s very efficient with hi spitch count…Lets Get this Damn offense going. These have been the most boring games back-2-back I’ve watched in years…
whose place did reyes get on the roster today?
The Garrett Anderson signing was supposed to help us. He had better heat up quick!
April 18th, 20091:47 pm
McFann, It’s okay, I was not offended on you not Bolding my name
I was wondering where you were last night! I agree lets bring up Jones and do something with LOAF
KJ first pitch fly to left.
April 18th, 20091:48 pm
Man KJ has now hit the Funk…3 Damn hits through 6 inning and 6 hits through the last 15 innings, WTF!
April 18th, 20091:49 pm
Geez KJ pop up on the 1st pitch.
Omar single to right.
This team is GARBAGE
April 18th, 20091:50 pm
I have to say the Braves are pretty bad, like bottom feeders. We can go ahead and book 4th place again. The offense is awful, Chipper is hurt to often and will miss alot of games. Lets face it this team will continue to struggle until we pick up some right handed power bat. Yes Frank Wren looks like Swisher is off to a banging start and hes a switch hitter but you thought Diaz who swings at anything and Garrett Anderson who cant play the feild could be good haha its sad everyone in the lineup is struggling and are hottest hitter is single hitting Francouer. BOOOOOOOO my hometown team is awful its sad 1 run is alot to us.
Anderson 3-6-3 DP.
what was that? a 5(ish) pitch inning for Snell?
Aight That’s It! GA Sucks! Bring up Brandon Jones, this is getting sickening watching CY Snell Plow through this Anemic offense…
April 18th, 20091:51 pm
garrett anderson batting third…. wow. i just dont think that bobby cares anymore.
Garrett Crapperson is really starting to pi$$ me off. Dude’s hitting in the 3 hole and can’t do jack.
Can this team learn some dang patience at the plate?
April 18th, 20091:52 pm
Anderson .. you MOT$%^% FU$%^#$# !@!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
again, gotta group the hotter hitters at the top of the lineup….
or maybe not…couple of mill wasted on Tommy and Garret…everyone knew coming in that we needed a bat, especially considering the time that Chipper would miss…but, I have to admit; I didn’t know we needed IT this bad!
Getting old, getting old quick. For the life of me I can’t figure out why Diaz or Anderson get to bat 3rd and Frenchy who is actually doing well stays at 6.
April 18th, 20091:53 pm
Ground out to Kelly.
Anderson and Glavine .. just hang up your boots already you old farts !!!!
Loaf Garret on a blackberry from LF
April 18th, 20091:54 pm
That was ugly.
RERUNS OF LAST NIGHT
Steve from OH
For the life of me I can’t figure out why Diaz or Anderson get to bat 3rd and Frenchy who is actually doing well stays at 6.
wasn’t Francoeur the blog’s designated whipping boy just two days ago? Fickle.
Single to center, bad hops past Schafer for a triple.
Ball Just Snakeeyed past Schafer, This is flat out embarassing!
my bad P-Town. maybe i meant in ST, or on several occasions in his career.
Wow, why can’t our balls do that?
Jake W, for Bobby Cox it’s the ol’ lefty-righty thing … it’s automatic, leave brain on shelf … frustrates me to no end
a triple a day keeps victory away
Anderson and Glavine .. Old Farts that stink it up and wont go away
April 18th, 20091:55 pm
Single off Jo Jo’s leg into right field. 2-0.
And our statue of a RFer just watches as Shafer runs down the bad hop…
What kind of bad hop was that? Can’t buy a break.
McLouth steals second easily.
LT- A Blogger
Even with Chipper and Yunel in the line up, not sure we’d be seeing much of a difference. Anyone else?
I don’t know- I know things can change but any optimism from the beginning of the year is completely gone now. Making Ian Snell look like Greg Maddox.
OK, that was strange. At first I thought Schafer just misread it. But replays clearly showed the ball bounced the OTHER way after it hit the grass. It was splicing to the right, then landed and shot back to the left. So while he looked bad on the play, I really don’t see much more that he could’ve done. He was going to the ball and it didn’t bounce the way anyone would have expected it to.
Jordan Schaffer sucks man he can’t hit or play defense and now its 2-0 because of Jordan he caused us 3 triples wow DOB did you say he played good D o yea let me tell ya hes awful buddy.
April 18th, 20091:56 pm
Bad Defense and our Anemic Offense has Sputtered A good start by Jo-Jo Reyes
Ball game…no WAY this team comes back from being 2 runs down…no way in he!!
Intentional walk to Doumit – Buddy up in pen.
Sanchez tripled last night … tell me that was just a flashback
OK DOB say that one was not on Schaffer what do you have to say how he played those other two balls that should have been doubles but were triples
April 18th, 20091:57 pm
My balls do that all the time.
Me neither. You see my other posts on page 12? Bobby really has to group the hotter hitters. That would mean Infante, Prado, Frenchy, behind KJ, and in front of McCann and Kotch. Not sure why they’re all spread out. If they’re together, then at least once a game 2 will get on base in the same inning..
April 18th, 20091:58 pm
I know we have a crappy offense, but as long as we have that old fart Bobby Cox as manager we will never win the division. Of course that has been the case the last 3 years.
Does JoJo really have a sinker or is Gameday confused?
A bad hop? My boy did a flip out there. That was funny. I bet he’s embarrassed.
JasonInFL Just two minutes ago you predicted we score two runs this inning, now it’s dooms day?
Laroche going deep.
How long until we move KJ to rf frenchy to center and prado at 2nd. It is a no brainer right now we cant have Jordan going 0-4 with 4 K. KJs glove is killing us at 2nd we need to stop the bleeding. Dial 911 Bobby before Jordan loses all his confidence and turns into a wohlers head case.
D P to the C
So….where are all the “where’s the offense?” jokes now like during the first few games?
Don’t know what you’re talking about Steve. I speak for myself and I wasn’t getting on Frenchy at anytime this season. Maybe you’re talking about someone else. This is actually something I said yesterday. For the record the only person I had a problem with was Boyer and his struggles and I said so on past post but he’s gone now so i’m good.
April 18th, 20091:59 pm
Schafer just keeps screwing up, not necesarily being his fault though.
Ya’ll can’t say nothing about Jo Jo today, he’s done good.
This team Has Flat Out Sucked…We got Clowned by the Marlins and Now we are making the AAA Pirates look like a(n) 100 win team, WTF…I could understand if we were playing a playoff contender which is why this is more difficult to swallow…
It’s still early, We’d just better be thankful that the Phillies and the Mets haven’t come out Clowning
well, that one really wasn’t Schafer’s fault… what a weird (and unfortunate) bounce. Cost Jo-Jo a run. To a great extent, you make your own luck, but the Braves sure aren’t getting any breaks.
Schafer….where singles and doubles…turn into triples. Maybe we can trade for Andruw…if 10 or so years…he never…screwed up this bad…this many times.
Ok guys , game is up . 2 runs are too many for these chaps … lets have some fun with the suckers and farts on this team
Adam L strike out on a very low breaking ball.
SOS is that why hes one of the greatest managers of all time and he WON 14 IN A ROW use common sense buddy he has nothing to work with anymore
April 18th, 20092:00 pm
Oops. Well they have enough runs anyway.
Sorry. Wrong guy
Monroe – 3 run jack straightaway center.
Craig Monroe…3-run bomb.
Pirates scouting report on the Braves: Aim for CF
That home run doesn’t even matter, this team isn’t even going to score once.
Well game over
just wow.. again the braves are stinkin in it up.. this team is junk . we cant even beat the marlins once and now we are going to be swept by pittsburgh. Im callin it right now.. I feel so bad for Derek Lowe and Javier Vasquez for joining this team.. we are worse than washington.. Thank you Frank Loser Wren and had enough of bobby cox.. retire or please can him… wheres the life and passion for this game. the braves look pathetic… 3 years in a row of garbage and junk.. dont want to waste my time watching this team We just are awful… No offense whatsoever.. and what a bullpen full of little leaguers..i am going to pittsburgh tomm and gonna route for the pirates to sweep.. I cant watch this team.. no one cares at all..
Dammit!!! Game Over, Now we are Getting Clowned…Embarassing…! That ball was killed!
April 18th, 20092:01 pm
I think he’s played too shallow on some guys, I really do. I mean, you expect a ball or two to get over the CF on hard-hit balls, but it’s been too many times in the past week that Schafer’s gone scrambling back on balls that hit the front edge of the warning track.
As I type that, there goes one he couldn’t get to … because it landed in the bullpen.
Uh, ballgame. Braves down 5-0 through six. And Pirates just got another double….
N Nine, trying my hand at being optimistic about this team. Back to reality. Do you want to place a friendly bet on whether or not they score 2 runs?
From well over .500 to under .500 in record time.
Double to left by Andy L.
5 – 0 !!!! One fart each for Anderson , Glavine , Bobby the old farts !!!
haha the Braves are the second worst team in baseball and when the Nats sign Strasburg that might flip flop
F___ the Braves.
Another intentional walk.
April 18th, 20092:02 pm
Would’ve been a triple if it didnt get out anyways.
Old fart Andersen couldn’t get to the ball again !!!
This Is just Nasty, Jo-Jo Deserved a better fate. He Pitched a lot better than the numbers would indicate…
Our Anemic offense has some serious issues, Bobby C. Needs to start tinkering with the Lineup til something works!
April 18th, 20092:03 pm
Wow. Just…wow. And not in a good way.
On top of all of this, I just flipped over to TNT and (Spoiler Alert) Gandalf died! Time for a dog walking break.
Man this is painful to watch.
Good bye folks !!! Nothing more to write about, These guys have stunk it up enough already
April 18th, 20092:04 pm
LaRoche was batting .048 coming into this series…now up to .160….wow we are good for guys BA. Maybe we should have signed Monroe…he was apparently a free agent.
Andruw Jones on an iphone from the Rangers clubhouse withStar Wars theme playing in the background
Sup Braves…miss y’all! Too bad Frankie didn’t want to spend $500K on me. Oh well, better luck next year.
Ugh…that’s the ballgame, I suppose. 5-0 is insurmountable by this offense.
How long until we move KJ to rf frenchy to center and prado at 2nd.
Face it, Braves are a pretty bad team without Chipper and Escobar in the lineup. And Reyes still has a lot of work to do if he’s to ever realize his potential.
April 18th, 20092:05 pm
DOB: Any chance that the Braves bring up Tommy Hanson after this game by Reyes? Reyes looked alright for the most part, but he got hammered late and now it looks like the Braves are well on their way to 5 losses in a row..
This season isn’t looking much different then last season to tell you the truth.. Its still early, but they seem to be playing with no heart right now.. The offense is on life support, and the starting pitching can’t win with no run support no matter how good they pitch..
I’m with D P to the C on the ETA of that proposed move: Never.
April 18th, 20092:06 pm
wow now its 5-0 well mark it down 5 straight. go for 6 and the sweep.. and I will boo this team off the field… please pittsburgh sweep this pathetic of a ball team. when will someone stand up in this organization and kick frank wren and bobby cox and all the garbage players on this team out the door.. give them the pink slips… please.. i wasted 160 $ on the extra innings package to watch this crap.. and now 16 innings without scoring a run.. no wonder why we suck so bad…
The season looks all but hopeless already.We’ve seen this here movie, over and over and over the past 4 years.
Can Brian McCann please hit a homerun.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
