Braveshater what are you even talking about. Missouri has some of the best colleges west of the Mississppi. Also why talk about Moylan if it didnt effect the game. It is irrelavent.
I don’t know Jeff, Diaz might have lost the ball in the lights again.
For the love of humanity…
The interesting question is MFin04 is why is the guy even on the ROSTER??…arent they way more options than this game-blower…jeez.
Bennett and Anderson should go and get a gay marriage in Orange County and move as far away as possible from baseball maybe Iran so they would hang them to death

Jesus this Fat ba$tard has to go cox is wetarded
My God get Bennettt outta there pathetic
Very strange decisions here by Cox…no doubt about it. Isn’t JB the guy that should be coming in in the 12th or something after the rest of the ‘pen has come through? It all started with Cox leaving JJ in to pitch to Reyes.
Seriously. Why is he still in the game???
Wow. This is horrible. I’m going to bed to read.
how Jeff Bennett is still on the big league club i’ll never know…..
need more alcohol…
Yes, you should always walk 2 guys so you can pitch to Beltran. Way to go, JB. You’re awesome at this!
Okay we take Moylan out for walking one guy but we are going to leave Bennett in to lose the game?
Bobby lost this one now good job
well, thats the ballgame…..
Where’s Carlyle? At least the guy wouldn’t have walked the stinkin catcher to get to the hottest hitter on their team. OH LORDY!
I got an idea! Lets walk two guys to get to Beltran! lol
MFin04 (The Hopeless Romantic)
WHAT IN THE HELL IS BOBBY DOING WITH BENNETT IN THE GAME AT ALL???? THEY ARE BATTING .400 AGAINST HIM!!!!??? THAT IS AN AUTOMATIC RUN!!!!!! TAKE ME OUT!!!!!!
Robert he gave up one hit. The first guy he saw. He would of been fine if the ump didnt blow it. No way Bobby could of prevented the Beltran double. Also to say Gonzo didnt have it is wrong. He kept getting 0-2 and the run scored because of a bad call. You cant always blame Bobby.
is soriano hurt? why are we leaving bennett in against beltran?
There is a valid point here, though. Gonzalez isn’t our best relief pitcher, Soriano is. And the fact that Bobby uses Gonzalez as the closer, well, it doesn’t usually matter. But it might have tonight. I was against using Gonzalez in the first place because he’d pitched 5 of the past 7 days less than 2 years removed from Tommy John surgery with an injury history longer than I-75. He also warmed up yesterday, one of the 2 days in the past week he hasn’t made an appearance.

Well, to be far to Bennett the ump seems to have shrunk his zone, according to gameday 2 of those balls were strikes for sure.
Chop It Up All-star
The mind of Bobby Cox…give the guy a chance to succeed, even though it has been proven that he will fail EVERYTIME.
Where is Soriano when you need him?!?!
He’s gonna walk him in lol
This has lose in Braves Fashion written ALL over it…
I can’t watch this crap anymore. I’ll catch up on posts tomorrow.
So help me God, if he walks in the winning run…
The hottest hitter in baseball
I GOT AN IDEA! Lets WALK in the winning run!
THROW AN F*ING STRIKE YOU B*STARD!!!
WHY IS HE IN THE GAME STILL!!!!!!
DOB where you at no comments do to the prevalance of ingnorance in the braves dugout
Pack it uppppppppppppppppppp LOST GAMEEEEEEEE
METS STINK. METS MAMA STINK. THIRD BASE UMPIRE TONIGHT MAMA STINK TOO. MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL STINK!
WHY IS HE IN!!!!!!
May 12th, 200910:13 pm
NONONONONO. Do NOT walk in the winning run, Jeff!
WHY IS HE IN???? BOBBY SHOULD BE FIRED!!!!!!!!!
i bet he walks In the winning run…
I really don’t thiink Soriano was available tonight. He just worked three straight days and Gonzo had yesterday off.
Getting beat is one thing….but giving the game away is completely different. If JB loses it here, it will be very disappointing.
Bobby is such an A$$
I don’t care if it’s down the middle just do it
That was ugly. Oh well we got Jo Jo going tomorrow
Bobby cox you suck leaving in Bennett you ahole
May 12th, 200910:14 pm
Wow…what a pathetic ballgame by the Braves. Just…wow…
JB GO TO HELL
How does a manager allow that to happen?
As frustrating as this game may be, even more so if we lose, the excitement level, running through your body, is what I want you to recognize.
This one HURTS!!!!
How is this not COX’s fault. Who in the HE… leaves in Bennett to screw this up! REally!!
Guess Bennett isn’t exactly our “go to guy” huh?
This is a game when we look back we could have used to turn the corner but we choked thanks to the manager and Bennett
i dont care… bobby sucks…
CUT BENNETT AND FIRE BOBBY!!!! EVERY SINGLE PERSON ON HERE KNEW BENNETT WAS A BAD GUY TO PUT IN HERE. BOBBY COX SUCKS @$$ MAKES NO SENSE TO KEEP BENNETT IN, MAKES NO SENSE TO PUT HIM IN. BULL $H!T!!!!
Sad…very sad game management tonight.
No More Bobby
May 12th, 200910:15 pm
Why is that redneck on our team!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I mean, how does a major league reliever not throw a strike there?
Bring up Medlen – release Bennett.
No one can stick up for Bobby on this one. What dumb@ss logic is there in leaving him in the d@mn ballgame? You yank other guys but contiune to leave in the ones that really stink. Be consistent.
As a team its kinda sad when you get excited about a walkoff walk.
With JoJo tomorrow the series is lost. At least we gave it a good run.
Damn good theatre.
clutch bennett. CLUTCH. go back to richmond.
Really? As a fan I want an answer for that? Pathetic!
And the award for the UGLIEST looking players in MLB goes to…… THE MUTTS!
I want to punch Bennett in the face and make him spit that crap out.
PITCH … DON’T CHEW STUPID!!!!!
Wow, Jeff Bennett have yourself the choke. At least give Beltran a chance to the lose the game or win it.
Its time fire Bobby Cox, he just doesnt learn from mistakes.
I blame DOB and today’s blog title. Hopefully he’ll write about how terrible JoJo is tomorrow…
Cox you friggin suck you put your best against best. Soriano could have faced one batter.
May 12th, 200910:16 pm
I want to kick my lcd sony tv. Why couldn’t he throw a strike.
I can honestly say the umpires gave this one to the Mets.
1.) B.S. Ground rule double on Mac.
2.) The blown call at third base when dude should have been out.
3.) That last pitch by Bennett looked like it caught the corner.
Dr. Van Nostren
It’s gotta be about time to bring Medlen up to help out the pen. We need another reliable arm down there who can throw strikes. How much more of Bennett do we need to see before the move is made?
cue the mets fans…
ugh effing Jo-Jo tomorrow? this series is lost.
That game was not double pits to chesty.
can someone give me reasoning behind why Jeff Bennett is still on the big league club?
Other than holding Bobby Cox pictured with a goat or something…
great. fun little run we had their fellas…. too bad we will never see above .500 baseball from this club the rest of the season. jesus christ… its sad. its may and you know this club is done. because the great booby cox piece of dogs..t is at the helm. well in other news…
bama just got a great qb prospect in phillip sims. i cant wait for the start of college football.
And that, is the worst way, IMO, and probably everybody else’s, is the worst way to end a game.
How does Bobby not get fired for that!!!??? How??? He mismanages games soo often!!!!
May 12th, 200910:17 pm
Too bad, tough no win for JJ
Waste of time with KJ
Nose Stinker for JB
Just remember, Bennett may have stunk, but there never should have been a 10th inning if we had a first baseman or right fielder that could hit.
Canadaian braves fan
DOB I asked the other day why he was still here, never has a 1,2,3 inning. Just keeps loading the bases HE SUCKS
Ugh. Just ugh.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
