I was hoping they wouldnt walk McCann after Chipper stole 2nd.
That’s okay, walk him.
The Krotchman cometh…
Rob from SC
I understand wanting replay, but these calls have happened for over 100 years. I hate the reply idea.
Garrett made the right throw to second. He ain’t throwin’ Beltran out! But geez…..Garrett is slow as smoke off…. well you know. Gonna have to put Diaz in for defense in late innings if Garrett starts.

Alright Casey, youve been good for 3 games, sucked the rest, please get a hit!!!
Come on Klutchman.
lets go Kotch!
May 12th, 20099:59 pm
Alright Kotchman…you made a good defensive play earlier…time to get a clutch hit now baby!
Way to go Robert – are you blaming Cox for a bad umpiring decision?
Ok, Kotchman and then . . . Francoeur. Geez . . . next inning please.
“we dont bunt we dont steel we cant play small ball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
And yet we have 2 sac bunts tonight, 1 sac fly, 2 sb attempts. hmmm…. makes me wonder if you’re watching the game, a643dp.
Garrett Anderson blows.
“Bobby Cox blew this game, his failure to understand when to take out his starter but this game in jeopardy, pure stupidity”
Thank you. If Cox knows what he is doing, it doesnt come down to a questionable call by an ump
Robert the Donkey went to the closer in the 9th. Isnt that what he was suppose to do?
Dammit Casey. Just minutes after I started your fan club too.
Kotchman, wow, don’t know what to tell you, if you tell the truth you get grilled on here.
K-Rod may chew Frenchy up and spit him out like a sunflower seed.
May 12th, 2009
No, PWHjort, you suck. Don’t group me in with you.
Boog talks about the Facebook page too much! It has to stop!
Well…I meant it’s time for Frenchy to get a clutch base hit now.
Francour blows even worse.
“Way to go Robert – are you blaming Cox for a bad umpiring decision?”
I am blaming Cox for putting the Braves in a situation where one umpiring decision could have the effect it did
May 12th, 200910:00 pm
Frenchy be a hero……….Don’t swing at the first pitch for god sake. Damn he swug and it’s an ou.
He won’t have time, Maniac. Jeff is in a hurry.
CHOKE!!!! This game is over, Mets win it in 10.
Another leadoff man stranded.
Or Frenchy could swing at the first pitch and fly out
Man, take a fkn pitch
Francoeur = hero hasn’t been near the truth for a few years.
Nice game for Francoeur. Oy.
Jeff Bennett in the game.
Of course I’m just looking for someone to blame. Has nothing to do with the fact that he’s hitting .242/.327/.400 with 14 K’s in 109 AB’s and has played p!ss-poor defense all season. Ya, you’re right though. I’m just a loser looking for someone to blame. He’s actually a very good player. I mean, good players put up that line all the time, right?
As I said, Kotchman and Francoeur, and hope that we can score next inning.
Man K-Rod just embarrassed himself again.
Are you f’in kidding me. 2 on 1 out, and Krod gets out of it with TWO pitches? Way to work the count guys!
May 12th, 200910:01 pm
I can count 5 games Bobby Cox has blown this year. Who owns this team, Are they watching at all?
In case anyone stepped out for a minute.. Frenchy just flew out on the FIRST DAMN PITCH AGAIN! Imagine my shock.
I love the replay of the Otis Nixon, especially with that music and Skip voice in the background.
OK let’s take this to the 11th ~_~
wow Chip does so much that inning and nothing comes out of it…this game should be in the books. I don’t think I’d care so much if it wasn’t the Mets.
Not if the Mets Choke first…
May 12th, 200910:02 pm
Imagine if had a prototypical RF and leadoff man we might be good.
RobertThank you. If Cox knows what he is doing, it doesnt come down to a questionable call by an ump
Um, couldnt you also say if the closer knew what he was doing it wouldnt of came down to a questionable call by an ump. Why throw a breaking ball over the middle of the plate on an 0-2 count? Or why plunk a guy on a 0-2 count. It isnt always Bobby’s fault. Players got to perform.
WTF? Bennett? the league hitting .400 against him!!!!!!! I believe that means they will score a run and win.
A well managed player that Franceour
The sheet wearers are out after Anderson again. There was no way to know if Anderson dives he comes up with ball or it gets by him. He went the safest play.Blame the pitching, blame Bobby for leaving in JJ, blame JJ for the pitches he made, blame the ump for not making the call on Beltran. But to try to blame Anderson shows how desperate you are to find something to blame him for.
Jeff Franceour has left 7 men on base in this game. He left those two on by swinging away at the first stupid pitch. What a shock.
Why would u take JJ out and bring in Moylan, that had to be the dumbest fucin decision I’ve ever witnessed out of them all.
Francoeur swings even when the pitcher throws to first base. His strike zone is the size of the center field score board.
BENNETT? OH HELL NO! OMG I honestly don’t think I’m gonna be able to watch.
Game over this guy suck so bad even DOB ripped a new you know what on him.
I understand why Chipper stole 2nd, but you’ve got to wonder what might have happened if 1st base wasn’t open for the intentional walk to McCann
Oh crap. Really? Bennett?
May 12th, 200910:03 pm
Oh Gosh! Bennett scares the begeezus outta me.
Braveshater name the 5 games.
SHUT UP BOOG. SERIOUSLY. SHUT UP.
“And here’s the pitch.”
i am betting a million dollars Muts win it right here with Jeff Bennett on the mound.
sucks they called beltran safe. he was definitely out. the ball beat him there as well–the ump got over-excited, i suppose.
i’d have gone with soriano in that situation too. all those righties. why gonzo?
better yet, why BENNETT????
wow. here comes bennett and a crushing defeat along with him….
i hope not at least. if we do lose this game and with jo jo going tomorrow that could kill all of the momentum we built on this road trip. this loss would be horrific….
Chipper aint scoring from first on anything but a triple or homer by McCann.
2 bad we dont have a guy that could steel 3rd and get home with the Kotchman Pop out.
May 12th, 200910:04 pm
Braveshater Moylan didnt do anything to effect the game. Why dont you actually try to watch the game?
Ballgame, huge loss for us.
If Derek Lowe said that game in Florida was an offensive win, if we lose this one it will definately be an offensive loss.
“It isnt always Bobby’s fault. Players got to perform”
Some days they perform, somed days they dont. It’s usually obvious quicly which it will be. It’s the manager’s job to notice immediately and act quickly. Cox does neither –
If the Braves lose this game, let it be noted that Cox kept guys in there who had shown they werent performing tonight – THAT”S his frickin job – using the pieces the best way he can – and THAT is what he is tiotaslly incaspable of doing -
unreall.. kotchman and francouer.. 1st and 2nd 1 out and they both swing at the first pitch.. chipper steals and we have no stinkin patience.. but i will say this… the umps blew that call. Beltran was out..
May 12th, 200910:05 pm
One thing that has been overlooked tonight….if Gregor Blanco is playing CF instead of Schafer tonight, the Braves have probably already lost this game.
Yeah, I know…gotta watch myself. Huh, these umps haven’t helped my sore throat, either…
Wish that ball woulda gone out! Dang, that woulda been sweet!
C’mon, Braves! Gyah…
this game is done.
Guys, please stop responding to the one trick pony, that just encourages this troll who has had a single original thought in last few years.
Blogger you an idiot if u dont believe Garrett Anderson couldnt have made a better attempt at the ball. All he has to do is lunge a little more or maybe dive, and the game is fucin over. he has limited range and doesnt need to play everyday or even every other day. He doesnt even need to be on the team, brandon jones could fill his shoes with ease.
I’m waiting on Robert to say something like “Cox had his players suit up and play on the field today, that’s why we lost.” Numbleskull.
well there’s a double by Reyes lol
Bennetttt LOL he is Jeff “Death Sentence or Lose a Game” Bennett
To PO or not to PO?
Beltran was totally out. That was an awful call.
Gonzo is the CLOSER Robert. Geeze! Your a moron!
May 12th, 200910:06 pm
There goes the hit…Jeez when is Bobby going to learns…BENNETT= LOSE
Get the batter at home at Reyes doesn’t matter Bennett.
Put it to rest, Anderson ain’t throwin out Beltran at the plate from where he was.
and also will say bobby again stupid decision leaves anderson in to play D. and if diaz or someone else was there who could run.. J. J had out number 2 .. another bad decision by bobby…
Kotchman has saved like 4 runs with his D …nice going Krotchy
i bet 100 bucks hes not going to throw strikes here….and hes going to walk him
May 12th, 200910:07 pm
Why is JB in the game?
This game is a Cox classic – only one this year that compares was that 11-3 or whatever it was lead he couldnt hold in the third or fourth game of the season
May 12th, 200910:08 pm
Eric I see why u live in Mo, I didnt say Moylan affected the game, I was speaking on the decisions of Bobby Cox. I knew Mo was slow, but I didnt you’ll couldnt read either.
Bleu do you still think McCann is good defensivly?
There goes a triple by Reyes heck he might steal home too if Bennett can’t throw strikes
May 12th, 200910:09 pm
Bennet suck he know the batters not gonna swing until he gets a strike so reyes can steal just amature hour.
“Gonzo is the CLOSER Robert. Geeze! Your a moron!”
So, no matter wwhat, he comes in and STAYS in in a save situation. Even if it’s clear he has zero command – no other possibilities exist
Ok Bobby – keep pushing the “Kolb” button
What the hell is Bobby doing with Jeff Bennett coming in the game? He should be the last one out of the pen!!!!
I cannot stand Jose Reyes!
There goes another game…jesus christ…
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
