DOB doesn’t cover every game. He might be back for Cincy but I bet more likely that Carroll will stay with the team through the end of the road trip

Some rational thinkers…many thanks!

It’s April folks. Too early to panic, though many of you have already.</em
Still 91% of the season to be played…

Why do I feel like MANY of you had never watched a Braves game before flagging-down a fair-weather bandwagon in the 90s? If you’d gone through the late 80s, you’d have much more patience now.
That is so true!

Patience, folks … as badly as I wanted to fling my remote across the sports garage and scream in frustration, it’s a long season.
See, the scribe abides, nuff said.

Some of ya’ll are getting WAY too depressed and frustrated right now. No team, besides Fla. is clicking at all.
See, if TnBrian can pose patience, then so can everybody. He really is a fan, and he said so…straight to DOB’s face.

Let me be the first to say that the time has come for Bobby Cox to sail off into the sunset.
LOL, ummm, sorry to burst your bubble, but you aren’t anywhere near the first one to say something on here about Bobby needing to go. There are plenty of Cox haters on here that have been screaming that from the day the blog started. (For the record I’m not one of them, I don’t think Bobby is the greatest or anything, but I do think the man is better than most managers)

In Norton’s defense, and in defense of a coupla other Braves batters, that ump last night was making some bad-ass calls. In Norton’s case the second pitch which should have made the count 2-0 was called a strike and the next pitch, which was in the same area, Norton swung and missed (too tough to reach). One of the games in Pittsburgh – the infield squib that spun out in front of Kelly and Infante…the single that spun past Schafer for a triple (that Francoeur wasn’t bothering to back up on, by the way). When things are going bad everything mounts up. I’d like to believe that things will turn – soon – but my sense is that somebody’s gonna have to do something, like making some personnel moves, in order to jump-start it. Bobby’s been at this a long time and knows that things can, and generally do, turn around. Hope he’s right but it better do it soon.
Dangit, why can’t I get the italics to work…I really suck at this wordpress formating.

new blog should be up momentarily. Have at it.
April 22nd, 200911:21 am
Joe Fan …You have a point, i’m very concern about this Franchise, first we lost the National exposure because TBS, when Liberty media decise to sell this team…Look out North Carolina(Charlotte) we are coming near you.

<TnBrian (11:02 am): “TnJeff, hey smart A**, I listened to Brian Jordan say twice last night that the team has no chemistry or very little… at least not yet. Who are you? Shut the hell up and realize this is a blog and fans have a right to speak their minds.”
A. Why would you think Brian Jordan knows anything about these Braves’ “chemistry”? (And why didn’t you attribute your “insight” to him?)
2. ” . . . realize this is a blog and fans have a right to speak their minds.”
You’re right — did I tell to YOU to “Shut the hell up”?
No, I didn’t — I just aked why you were pretending to know something you couldn’t.
If you can’t handle a question like that, you should probably take a dive off the Walnut Street bridge. (Before or after you get to Coolidge Park.)
PS: That’s priceless — “Shut the hell up and realize this is a blog and fans have a right to speak their minds.”

Does RISP mean runners in stranding position?

be careful what you wish for as far as a screaming coach. You don’t want to wind up with Larry Bowa.
April 22nd, 200911:39 am
All of you guys that think Bobby Cox needs to hang it up are idiots, as far as I’m concerned.
Chuck James was Solid until the 6th!!!

As sad as it is, there is nowhere else to turn. This team needs Garrett Anderson back healthy ASAP. His healthy bat is crucial for the rest of the season. Chipper needs to get back to 100% because he is hovering around 70-80% right now and McCann needs to get his vision back. Jeez that is alot of hoping….
April 22nd, 200911:49 am
So if we lose 90 games will Bobby be back next year? Its a shame one guy is holding back the whole organization.
April 22nd, 200912:01 pm
This is the same team from last year. Same results. We cant HIT!!!!!!!
We cant. We just cant.
Those of you critical(Ironic isnt it?)of those who may have something negative to say are living in the 90’s. I dont necessarily advocate Cox leaving but there has to be a change at third base coach and HITTING COACH!
Just the mindset alone would help players.
In our lives,jobs,etc.,when we have a CHANGE it stimulates our emotions,our thought process,our approach to how we handle situations. Its called NEW BLOOD.
Face the facts– these players are here to stay and the Braves mgmt. has to find a way to get the juices flowing.
And the stimulus plan isnt Garrett Anderson….pleeeeeeeeeeeeezz! He is in a max state of Depression not pain! He played for 1 team forever and they booted him out!

I agree with whoever posted “where were the rally caps last night”. In the past every Brave player would be standing right in front of the dugout. Last night down 1 in the 9th w/base runners on 2nd and 3rd and no one out the players just sat there looking tired and ready for the game to end. I don’t know if it’s lack of chemistry, players giving up or Coaching. I just know it looked bad!

I find it kind of funny how the Nationals shook up things a bit and said that it was not fair to the fans and stuff.
Saying that…at least the Nationals care enough about their fans to do something. The Braves won’t do that. They think maintaining the status quo is the thing to do.
April 22nd, 20091:31 pm
When Liberty Media finally liberates the Braves from their cheap grip, the Braves will improve.
Then, a real owner will hopefully step up. Mr. Blank, are you reading our posts???
What the outside world thinks of Brave fans
April 22nd, 20091:34 pm
This is exactly what everyone in the baseball world thinks of braves fans: Not Loyal and spoiled. There was an article written once about the worse fans of baseball and guess who made the list? Atl Brave fans. The braves use to have a winning tradition but recently have fallen but are on the rise. Braves are concidered the underdog of the NL East but thats not such a bad thing. Keep with your team, stop trashing KK with his first year there and this is not what the braves are capable of. There much better than what they have been showing. This will not continue. Braves have a rotation that they can contend with but the offense is alittle suspect.
April 22nd, 20092:33 pm
This last post is an absolute joke considering the Braves were in the top 5 most popular teams thru out the nineties according to gallup polls. That is a fact not some shrewd reference to an “article written once”. You could consider this blog some article written. Google gallup polls for most popular baseball teams, Braves consistently top 5.
