Yeah, Chop Chop, I’d like to see JJ do some play by play
27 pitch first inning ….Lohse will come out and get us with 6 pitches.
April 28th, 20097:23 pm
jo jo looks pretty good
maybe with a good team behind him that could score some runs, he would be a winning pitcher
Jo-Jo looks very good, people! No complaints at all from me in that 1st. Hopefully he doesn’t get JJ’d and get no run support. Here we go…OWWWW, my hand!
Looks like a sell out tonight. Just like 1980’s. Everyone loves a winner.
27 pitches and a run in the first. This seems all too familiar.
27′ biceps, woooooowowowow
April 28th, 20097:25 pm
Lead off single, Omar.
the braves give my fleas a headache woof
Good at bat, Omar.
April 28th, 20097:26 pm
stephen..i am watching Greg as well..
There’s your ballgame people. The putrid Braves offense won’t be able to crawl out of this one. Is it me, or is Chipper slowing down a little on the defense? MUAHAHAHAHHHAHAHAHAHAHA
Jo-jo is looking good today, just had some bad luck on that inning. By the way Joe Simpson is calling Jo-jo Reyes 92mph a changeup.
April 28th, 20097:27 pm
Sorry I’m late–we had to go to Cost co. McCann is 0-1.
Do they have Gamedays for minor league ball?
Lol, Corky, it’s crazy huh?
April 28th, 20097:28 pm
Hoss is goin’ deep………….watch!
April 28th, 20097:29 pm
Gregg has lost it…He can’t even type…
April 28th, 20097:30 pm
i sniff kotchman arf
April 28th, 20097:31 pm
Stephen..did you see how they said he is in pretty good health…he has killed too many brain cells though
McFann … at the next kangaroo court, expect a fine.
The slowest man in baseball does it again.
UGAman – So an error here and there by Dunn in left isnt worth 40 home runs? Hmmmmm. That Diaz isnt actually a gold glove winner out there is he?
Kotchman hits into the Double play. Definitely NOT double pits to chesty!
April 28th, 20097:32 pm
I think a turtle could outrun Kotchman!!!!!!1
what do you guys think about Ross hitting cleanup til Mac gets back? bunch of Reds fans for friends so i had to watch him from time to time. He has good power
Lol, yeah, I did, Corky. Some of the braves need to do some roids.
More of the same sh!t. Give up a run in the first on a free pass to get behind early… and ground into a double-play in the bottom half of the inning.
you know if the braves only got runs by hitting into double plays…the offense would be better
April 28th, 20097:33 pm
It’s a good idea, Propp, In my Braves line up he was hitting Clean up.
April 28th, 20097:34 pm
Stephen..I can name a few….Brett Boone..Marcus Giles…Andruw Jones..Javy Lopez..Ken Canimiti (SP?)..John Rocker
Bronson Arroyo and Jered Weaver
Damn that guy has ugly hair.
April 28th, 20097:35 pm
When, or has it already, really start getting in these players heads when time after after time they can’t get ‘em on, get ‘em over, and get ‘em in?
It sure would be nice not to be so predictable every once in awhile and hit and run with runners on base and a contact hitter at the plate and a 2-1count. I mean we’re not hitting and why not open up the infield.
April 28th, 20097:36 pm
The Braves are an average team at best, and I love the Braves; but, they are average. In fact with proper coordination, I would pay all takers $1 for every game over .500 if I could have the same for each game below in the final standings. That are totally unremarkable, little speed, little power, they are not an especially smart team (like the Cardinals), the SP is average, the bullpen is average at best, and the fielding is average at best because of the lack of speed. In short, the Braves do not have the talent to be much above .500 at the end of the year. This will be proven to be a fact in about five months.
I can pull names out of a hat and that could be our lineup
Speaking of Ken Caminiti, I have a baseball that he signed for me when I was like five years old. “Best wishes, Stephen, – Ken”
Kinda sad when I heard he died :/
JoJo with 5 strike outs now.
5 K’s already. Just strike them all out.
April 28th, 20097:37 pm
5 K’s for Jo-Jo so far! Lookin like Freddie Garcia’s brother and all…
base hit pitcher. good work.
propp … I’m not too crazy about his lifetime batting average, but he has good pop, propp(just wanted to put those two words together). If I was making out the lineup, he bats fourth.
I told you that JoJo Reyes would pitch well.
April 28th, 20097:38 pm
none of the braves hitters have any patience whatsoever.. no one wants to learn from chipper.. leadoff single chipper walks and we hit into a DP with the count 3-1.. and kotchman swung totally at ball 4. and same thing last night.. escobar no patience whatsoever in the 8th inning ..and we give a free run again.. moylan walks the pitcher pinero and he scores the winning run.. and we hit rasmus and walk pujols and then molina hits him in.. yet the braves cant do jack when they have those opportunities..
David Athens, Al
5 K’s for JOJO … then gives a hit to pitcher
April 28th, 20097:40 pm
Nice job, Jo Jo.
Reyes has good command of his change-up today. I love the off balance swings.
i like nascar arf arf
April 28th, 20097:41 pm
JO JO is at just under 50 pitches. Whew
KJ has patience at the plate…maybe a little too much
JoJo is in line for five good innings. just needs to be pulled after that
April 28th, 20097:42 pm
Big JJ looks and talks like an over weight Urkel. They should hire me for that job.
Kotchman SUX. Last night in the eighth inning and tonight in the first when Chipper walked it was if he made an out because you just knew Kotchman would not be able to come through. Kotchman in the cleanup spot is another Cox genius move.
April 28th, 20097:43 pm
Krotchman is one of DOB favs…
Say what you will about Chip, but I like when he tells stories about his grandfather.
April 28th, 20097:44 pm
SOS, Kotch had three hits last night, give the guy a break.
What was wrong with that Matty????
(That’s the only smiley that I’ve found that sorta takes the place of the “wide-eyed innocent smiley face.)
Wish I could get a better score thingy for this MB game, though.
April 28th, 20097:45 pm
Diaz..strikesout again…I don’t know if he will hit .300 for the Braves again..
April 28th, 20097:46 pm
Nice eye, kid! Shafer walk.
April 28th, 20097:47 pm
Ross single. 1st and 2nd. JoJo ab.
Ross puts some serious wood on the ball.
David Ross can hit.
I like Ross’ bat.
David thens, Al
what a good addition Ross has been
Worthless getting our 7th and 8th guys up. Of course they shouldnt be batting in the 7th or 8th spots…but Bobby is an idiot. Ross for Clean Up!!!!!
Jo Jo can hit
April 28th, 20097:48 pm
Man it’s not just the Braves; MLB-TV has shown several highlights from the Astros @ Reds and that place looks EMPTY.
To quote Carvill from the Clinton campaign” “It’s the economy, stupid”.
Shoulda leaned into it, get Infante up.
Run Heap Run
Shoulda let it hit him.
No he can’t.
April 28th, 20097:49 pm
Jo Jo can hit. not as well as others hit off him in the 6th, but…
Steve from OH
Doesn’t it seems like a lot of our 2 out/RISP situations are with the pitcher at bat?
Was it too early to pinch hit for the pitcher? With this offense…I’m not sure???
April 28th, 20097:50 pm
so the braves either get two on and two out with the pitchers spot up, or one on and one out and hit into a double play. thats the story of the past few games
April 28th, 20097:51 pm
It’s second time around for the Cards. Hope they didn’t learn anything from the first time around.
Wow, not much of an upgrade.
Kotchman can pick it at first though…thats for darn sure.
read my mind, Steve. must be an ohio thing
April 28th, 20097:52 pm
Why don’t you send Schafer in that situation???? Two outs, your fastest guy on base, and the 8th hitter is the last opportunity to get him in with the pitcher up next? AHHHH! BOBBY COX
Pujols up…I’d walk him.
Dan, because Molina throws you out.
April 28th, 20097:53 pm
i don’t think Kotchman is a bad hitter, I just think Ross is better suited for the cleanup spot than Kotchman is
o this is exciting!!!
April 28th, 20097:54 pm
Corky Miller mention!
Corky is still a young man..who is still in the mlb
I may have missed it (haven’t been diligent in my daily blog reading), but did we ever hear what’s up with Heyward? Out of the lineup again tonight.
JoJo looking good. 1-2-3 3rd! Let’s get him some runs.
Nice quick inning! I take back most everything I’ve ever said about Jo Jo.
Pujols looks at his AB’s on video after each at bat…I can’t believe that is legal….? Anyone else hear that?
April 28th, 20097:55 pm
I second the request for someone to find out what is wrong with Heyward. He clearly has some kind of injury.
can we get a hitter on EBAY?
Three up and three down with Pujols and Ludwick as the last two outs. Impressive work, Jo Jo.
April 28th, 20097:56 pm
Wow, I went to take a dump after Jojo struck out and the Braves are up again.
Maybe a good sign.
2 more innings of golden JoJo, then gotta pull him
April 28th, 20097:57 pm
Good inning for jojo. He needed those 3 quick outs and he got em from the heart of the lineup, too.
Maybe Braves can hire Leonard Nimoy (In Search Of….Offense) to assist in broadcast booth.
I would figure that the IPHONE has an application for hitting and KJ could use it
“JoJo looking good”
o yeah jo jo looks way good chicks dig good looking jo jo
kind of reminds me of hunter thompson’s obese lawyer in fear and loathing
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
