you guys can use cairo to hit clean up.
what happened? just got back and 8-2???
May 8th, 20098:47 pm
He’s frickin 2-4 with a 4.27 era and has given up as many homers as KK NO THANK YOU
Why is a Mets fan even in here? Shouldn’t you be worried about their game against the Pirates tonight?
cabravesfan – not in my time zone, girl – but I’ll be listening all afternoon while tutoring.
cabravesfan, you just di man. thanks. if you know so much about baseball WHY ARE YOU A BRAVES FAN???? lol
May 8th, 20098:48 pm
Philly fan, no pitching or pen? Normally I respect the opinions of a rival fan, but thats just plain out retarded. The Braves have Lowe, JJ and Vazquez dominating at the moment. And Moylan, Soriano, Gonzalez have been doing quite well for most of the year.
And you sure as hell have no room to speak about bad pitching
Philly Phan…did you just say that Feliz is better than Chipper? I figured your just capped the wrong one, no one is that insane.
May 8th, 20098:49 pm
Escobar made an error but on a in btw hopper….Jojo then made an error on a ball hit by Hamels that was rolling foul and threw it into RF and it resulted in 4 Unearned runs….then the other 4 are all on various homers given up by Jojo…
Oh and a fan ran on the field that Chipper and Ryan Howard had a real good laugh at….took em a while to catch the guy he was FAST
may be with your run support he would be 5 and 1.
Vazquez is dominating? Who, his wife?
the real Andy
philthy phan – i will grant that utley howard and rollins (despite his .214 average this year) are impressive. too bad they can’t pitch. continue gloating that your #1 is beating our place-holder #5 – very impressive. i’d just like to take this opportunity to remind you that your lowest starter ERA is 5.35. enjoy your world championship, because you’re not winning another.
Met Fan, heres something for you. Win something. When is the last time you did?
And speaking of good gifts. My birthday is in September and you guys have been very giving to me the last two years.
May 8th, 20098:50 pm
Mets fans are the dumbest people on Earth. Seriously, what exactly have you guys won? Anything?? Exactly. You say the Braves suck, yet they’re only a game and a half behind you.
believe it or not I don’t hate the phillies- their fans, on the other hand…
May 8th, 20098:51 pm
BTW–After McCann hit his RBI “single”, they showed a fan in the dugout wearing his McCann shirt backwards. Wonder if it was Bruce…
Frenchy looked like the Frenchy of old today
Whats John Maines ERA or better yet Ollie Perez…What about David Wright how many K’s does he have….Shut your face you troll
I guess not everyone can live in paradise, right? Oh, the sacrifices we californians make!
The phillies have 8 runs and 5 hits(about 4 of them are homers).
May 8th, 20098:52 pm
Jake W. – the last time we won something was when we crushed your little division title streak. Which, you know, to a Braves fan is just as good as winning the World Series.
feliz will hit more home runs than cheaper jones. and play more games. he is faster. we don’t need singles from feliz that’s why we have rollins, he actually gets on base.
May 8th, 20098:53 pm
be careful when mentioning Ollie Perez…might be upsetting to mets fans to realize they could have had Derek Lowe for what they are paying a situational lefty coming out of their ‘pen
May 8th, 20098:54 pm
>>that’s why we have rollins, he actually gets on base.
Rollins .252 OBP
Get a f***ing life. Do you really f’n thing the Mets are going to win $*** this year?
You’re a joke. Why don’t you actually win the division now that the Braves are a 3rd or 4th place team. You don’t have us to look up at in September anymore and you still can’t get it done.
One division title in 18 years. Amazing.
I know I thought about taken cover when I said that….then I realized they are just Mutt fans and they have trouble beating themselves out of a wet paper bag.
May 8th, 20098:55 pm
Braveheart, I’m not from Puerto Rico. I’m of caucasian descent. It’s nice, though, that you got your hatred of Latin Americans into your post. Your blind racism surely speaks well of all Braves fans. And about the mother comment…in addition to spelling, I think you need to go back to school for Health class. It doesn’t work that way. I’m sure someone can show you on a doll.
Mets= 23 years and counting…
May 8th, 20098:56 pm
Is it time to pick your nose, Bobby?
please tell me that was sacrasm?
before yesterday Jair had 4 runs in his previous 4 starts…he got 4 yesterday though. But the Braves look to be setting well next year with Starters.They have many to choose from/or trade.
Hudson ( $13 million option and with the way Jojo and KK and Vaz have been showing they can be shaky I don’t see how the Braves let him loose)
you could even throw in
Parr and Carlyle if needed.
Just involuntarily screeched a curse word very loudly with my front door wide open and several small children walking by…is this bad?
Mitchell – and one more World Series title than the Atlanta Braves. Nice….
Thank you. Good Lawd! Was there circus music playing during all of these theatrics?
Sounds better than Barnum and Bailey!
May 8th, 20098:57 pm
>>> Met fan if you live in Atlanta, take your Puerto Rican ass back where you came from … up your mothers ASS !!!!!
i, as a braves fan, officially distance myself from this comment.
One more world series title then the braves? what?
I should mention that I am not really all that concerned with you upsetting mets fans…just fear for your safety
May 8th, 20098:58 pm
No Met Guy, something tangible like oh I don’t know…….. a WORLD SERIES. And by the way if division titles are world series (who really thinks that) then ypu guys have a lot of catching up to do. I mean if there so easy, why can’t you guys hold on and win one?
Amazing how a Met fan would rather spend hi time here than watch his own team’s game. Losers through and through. And Philly Fan…get a life man. Say the Braves suck..fine. But to say Chipper sux just proves your ignorance.
Braveheart….so, you hate Latin Americans and the President. Is it because he’s black or do you object to certain policies of his? Wait,l don’t bother answering. I’d love to see one Braves fan on this board call out this Braveheart idiot for the racist vile he’s spewing in the midst of supposed “baseball” talk.
And, you seem to have a real preoccupation with the buttocks portion of the body. Ever ask yourself why that is? I’m just saying.
May 8th, 20098:59 pm
cheaper is not an all star.
Thanks for looking out for another Braves Fan…Much Appreciated
May 8th, 20099:00 pm
braves are a fourth place team. this jo-jo reyes guy stinks. the offense is a joke. the bullpen sucks and gave us that win. team has omar infante and jeff francoeur as starters. an overrated manager. an uncaring fanbase.
braves are old news!
Bravos, throw Rohrbough and Locke into that list also. I believe that they could be ready for the bigs by the start of next year
who are all these brave pitchers i tought spring training was over.
Okay, brother….tell me why you hate Obama then? And please, answer quickly.
May 8th, 20099:01 pm
Baseball, anyone?? (looking sheepishly)
I don’t think the Braveheart posting tonight is the Braveheart we’ve known on this blog for a long time. Anyway, good night, children. Most of you need to either grow up, or sober up, or both.
Ok The Braves Organization has THREE frickin World Series titles OK people.
Just cause it wasn’t in Atlanta doesn’t mean it didn’t count. And for you Phillies and Mets fans you know d@mn good and well you’d be saying the same thing.
Believe me, as someone who lives in an area with plenty of Met fans, there is no reasoning with these people. They act tough, but deep down they know their team isn’t very good. Met fans flood NY sports radio everyday complaining about Manuel, Minaya, Wright, Perez, etc..everyday.
May 8th, 20099:02 pm
I’ll bet that’s it for Jo-Jo, as far as being an Atlanta Brave. Joe Simpson made a good point that he was using off-speed too much and they looked to be sitting on ‘em. Same old crap, just a 9 in front of the 0 for are buddy Reyes. The offense never had a chance tonight. Gotta get at fat boy Blanton tomorrow and head case Myers on Sunday. No excuse to not hit those goofballs.
Keep talking Mutt and Philly fans… what goes around, comes around!
when are you guys are going to learn how to play defense? what 21 errors in 25 games. no idea how to run bases. wow
May 8th, 20099:03 pm
Meant 9 behind the 0… duh.
What’s this I hear about not wearing the purity rings Ha HA. – Mickey Mouse
njbraves – and Braves fans talk all day long about how they love their team, and Bobby Cox? Come on, man, you’re not even trying….
maybe you should reserve (that means hold off on) making a comment about our ‘pen until your team gets a hit off one of them…just a thought
May 8th, 20099:04 pm
Phillie fans saying another teams pitching is bad is hilarious. You have the worst ERA in the NL..LOL.
Three Damn Hits I called It, Offesse Still Sucks!
the bullpen sucks and gave us that win. team has omar infante
First off Our bullpen doesn’t stink and Omar is playing because KJ is hitting like .200
YEAH OMAR STINKS!
May 8th, 20099:05 pm
So still….no one wants to chastise Braveheart for the overt racism? Or is that kind of stuff just acceptable to all Atlanta fans?
“Which, you know, to a Braves fan is just as good as winning the World Series.”
What would you know about that? Every time I think about the Mets I realize that they haven’t ever done anything to really earn my hatred. I mean, I hate the Mets but essentially they mean nothing to me.
But your arrorogance and over-confidence is so undeserved it pisses me off. Why don’t you do something warrant the trash talking.
Please stop the stupidity. Some of you Braves fans let these guys get to you. Name calling is really not needed. It’s so funny that some os us can quickly call Jojo mentally weak, but when someone comes on here acting immature you stoop down to their level. Your just as weak as Jojo. Argue the facts, stop making stuff personal.
Nice There We Go O! There’s our meaningless homer for the night!
Wow O’flaherty has been pretty good lately. I wonder if Bobby let’s him pitch another innnig or to at least Ryan Howard(assuming that the Braves don’t have a big inning in which they pinch hit for him.
Mets Fan…I know your kind. The second things go wrong, you’re killing the Mets. It’s what Met fans do. They fall for the hype every year, only to have their hearts broken over and over again. Just the thought of it brings a smile to my face.
Typical Kelly Johnson man crusher
May 8th, 20099:06 pm
KJ is still better. Don’t make me break out the stats to prove it.
Blanton 7 innings/4 hits/2 bb/1 run
mike 8 innings/5 hits/3 bb/0 runs
vasquez 7 innings/12 hits/1 bb/6 runs/ 155 pitches
KK 5 innings/11 hits/7 bb/9 runs/133 pitches plus what your bullpen allows.
Anyone have a feeling that Kelly Johnson’s mental state is absolutely horrendous right now? First he is a constant in trade rumors, then the braves attempt to sign Furcal and put him at 2nd, now Infante seems to have dethroned him and is doing a good job.
cabravesfan – screeching maybe not good, but they’ve probably heard it before.
May 8th, 20099:07 pm
We don’t like racism but trying to reason with them and fight about stuff like that is like fighting with a wall. Some people may have missed the post also.
I’m not going to criticize Omar but he does have some bad tendencies. He’s capable of hitting homeruns. That’s a start but I want to see more.
He can smoke the ball.
You’re right. Our problems have to do with defense and baserunning. Which is unacceptable. But it is identifiable and fixable with our current roster. Unlike your team’s horse sh!t starting rotation.
Mitchell – because all any Atlanta fan I’ve ever met talks about is “The Streak!” Which they then go on talking about as if it’s a long list of successes, while the rest of the baseball world looks at it as an embarrassing failure to win the Series more than once.
All right, I’ll leave you to your blog. Just please, Atlanta…don’t get swept, okay? Try to beat the Phillies at least once.
May 8th, 20099:08 pm
That is someone else posting and using Braveheart’s name. It is a troll. The troll is not a Braves fan.
If that was Braveheart’s answer, I consider myself fully validated. Goodnight!
i don’t know, they were pretty young serves me right for keeping the door open (can’t help it…it is 6:00 and still about 70 degrees and beautiful out here- I love california!)
Actually Braveheart….no offense meant by this at all…but I’m pretty sure all black people did vote for Obama.
May 8th, 20099:09 pm
you guys are getting close!!!!!!!!
I’m done for tonight. No need to argue now. We will see where everyone will be come the end of September.
Loaf Garret on a blackberry from LF is curious
May 8th, 20099:10 pm
He doesn’t look like he wants to play for this team.
Can I get an example of what someone who wants to play for this team looks like?
Trust me none of us on here really talk about that. We talk about how Bobby was smart back then..lol. But we don’t really talk about the past in terms of the streak unless someone brings it up saying as you did. We just talk about general baseball and what’s going on.
mets fan – not all braves fans are racist, and if you’ll look back i distanced myself a while ago from that statement. but i’m not gonna defend a mets fan, or encourage a blog fight. sorry. so some turkey said something you don’t like – either calm down or get the hell off the braves blog and go back to NY.
May 8th, 20099:11 pm
Hey woo-hoo, a meaningless homerun! LOL! Way to pad them stats.
May 8th, 20099:12 pm
Wow, Justin verlander is having a great night for Detroit. 10 K’s, 2 hits, 2 BBs, No runs. And he’s trying out the ninth now.
You wanna know someone whose stats are deceiving, Bennett. low era but he gives up everyone elses runs.
who is going to fix your team, COX? his nose is bleeding for picking it all the time
May 8th, 20099:13 pm
I’m not going to criticize Omar but he does have some bad tendencies. He’s capable of hitting homeruns.
1 in 67 ABs! What a masher!
bennet just made a mistake, breaves showing no CLASS
Bennett is so stupid
May 8th, 20099:14 pm
The braves have hit like 3 opposing hitter all year grow up.
is it just philly phan and phillies rock left in this BRAVES BLOG…lol
WE ARE THA CHAMPS.
May 8th, 20099:15 pm
and an umpire -ex brave blaine-
It’s kinda funny to hear a phillies fan talk about “class”
May 8th, 20099:16 pm
Philly phan, we’ve won 4 of the last 6 against you in your little kitty litter box stadium.
Why don’t you just enjoy your superiority and stop bragging about a win we gave you last time and talking about JoJo like you shouldn’t have beaten him.
Just beat the Mets and we’re fine. Or at least I am. You’re hardly the best team in this league but you kicked our ass at home last year, there’s no getting around that. As long as the Mets don’t win the division I’m fine. Not that they would.
blaine boyer also hit an umpire (ex brave)
Man It just pains me so see our AAA team get Clowned Like This!
May 8th, 20099:17 pm
In the words of Dwight Gooden, “LOL!”.
Finally, Jeff Bennett giving up his own runs.
ok i will enjoy it.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
