How am I suppose to know what gender they are. Its not listed i dont think.
May 15th, 20098:25 pm
I am simply crushed that you don’t respect me. You have ruined my entire weekend.
May 15th, 20098:26 pm
first RBI since April 8 in Philly for Schafer
May 15th, 20098:27 pm
braveshater – you just spelled out your major problem in life (in brilliant grammatical fashion) – “i dont think.”
Wayne in Utah
I was at the Giants-Mets game last night. Mets were stealing at will off Molina. He had gotten hit by a foul tip in the knee earlier, and couldn’t throw out anybody. So, while I give the Mets some credit for the steals, they were predominantly stealing off a wounded catcher.
Mcann couldnt frame roger rabbit.
Fire Chip Caray
Chip Caray is the most loud, obnoxious, annoying, unbearable, intolerable, stentorian and all-around bad baseball announcer I have ever heard in my life.

Reagan is considered, in many circles, one of the best presidents in our history.
just a little food for thought

Can I nominate Rob Dibble?
May 15th, 20098:32 pm
you tell ‘em, Interested Observer!
Did you know that a 30-game hitting streak is a “hit every day for a month, in the Major Leagues”.
Gee, thanks Chip. What would we do without you?
May 15th, 20098:34 pm
there’s some good D from Mac!
McCann guns down a runner trying to steal…. end of inning

I like the slide with one leg way up in the air.

HEY CHIP CARAY,
How is strapping a boom mike to the dugout camera to pick up the mindless babbling of Bobby Cox “great audio work.”?
If you and your George Constanza look-a-like of a producer knew how irritating that background chatter was to anyone above the age of 13, you’d finally give it a rest. Maybe next year, when even you tire of the non-stop “C’mon kid….take ball four…back” and other absolutely essential pearls of wisdom from the Braves skipper.

Smyrna Jim–brilliant spelling and “grammer” are the calling cards of this blog, no?
Oh, and “u” is not a word. YOU would look less juvenile if you actually, you know, spelled it out…
Crushed by Chipper!!
The guy who hit that looked familiar.
May 15th, 20098:40 pm
Thats my boy
The thunder booms and Chipper knocks one out. The baseball gods must be on our side still
That was a GREAT THROW to nab the runner! WHOO! That’s what I’m talkin’ about! 30%!!!
Only Chip Caray can put a damper on a Braves homerun. Slam-Wow?
May 15th, 20098:41 pm
Who called that hot weather HR hours ago? Thats right. Me. lol
2,202 RBI’s is more than 100 a season for 20 seasons. Thats an incredible number. I wish I wouldve gotten a chance to watch Hammerin Hank play. Wow.
May 15th, 20098:42 pm
McFann :Ô: 8:08 pm “Wait a minute…that thing Infante got on base from was ruled a hit? Holy cow…”
You’re not still upset about that Chase Utley error in Philthy, are you?
May 15th, 20098:43 pm
the home run just tied Chipper Jones with Eddie Mathews for second on the Braves all-time RBI list with 1,388
it was his fourth home run of the year, second from the right side
FrankieKnuckles – you so mean. That boy done gone off to see if he can drag the dog out from under the bed to play with. And on Friday night too………….
May 15th, 20098:44 pm
Heh heh…uuummm…what error?
May 15th, 20098:45 pm
Has Chipper passed Eddie on the XBH list yet?
13 year old Braves fan
Hey media man, you got somethin against 13 year olds? Well I need to let you know that I stuck 10 pixie sticks up my nose today in class!!!
Hank Aaron provided the best times the Braves will ever experience, and he’s a proud African American. I know that makes all of your skin boil. Lol.
May 15th, 20098:46 pm
Anyone have Javy’s pitch count handy? It seems like hes thrown a ton.
2,202 RBI’s is more than 100 a season for 20 seasons
May 15th, 20098:47 pm
I thought, on that slow curve, that there was no way that McCann was going to get Parra. On the triple, Parra looked pretty fast. Chip and Joe talked about the change in McCann’s footwork and how that helped him.
McCann is one of the most dangerous hitters I have seen, at such a young age, doesn’t give up at bats (except that pinch hit appearance in NY), and makes good contact all the time. He calls a good game.
His only real deficiency is his inability to throw out runners consistently. If he puts that together, wow. I hope he is around Atlanta for a good, long time.
I’ve heard some crap come out of Chip Caray’s mouth before, but what on EARTH was that??
May 15th, 20098:50 pm
Carroll Rogers, 8:43 pm “It was his ["Chipper's] fourth home run of the year, second from the right side”
He should have had two in Citi Field. Chipper’s hitting the ball much better since his day off. I’m glad he backed up his “shout out” to his team-mates about increasing their intensity at home.
May 15th, 20098:51 pm
3-1 to snyder….62 pitches.
lmao@ Joe calling Stanford “the Oklahoma of the west”.
Also, i need chip to stop talking about how bad the d’backs are. Thats bad mojo.
RHR – 62 pitches 35s/27b
Wow does Jordan cover some serious ground out there
Schafer can cover some ground….
May 15th, 20098:52 pm
i think it’s 62 pitches for vazquez after four.
May 15th, 20098:53 pm
Since Jo Jo is staying with the team in the bullpen (who knows? he might thrive there.) I’m going to officially call him “MoJo JoJo” from now on.
keylargo, do you live there? If so, color me jealous. I was down that way 10 years ago. Beautiful!
its like high school in a way. You have to let a loser know he’s a loser and usually they’ll bolt.
nope, 63 pitches, with 36 for strikes
May 15th, 20098:54 pm
ca – I dunno what it was. It sounded like he threw up a little bit.
May 15th, 20098:55 pm
AJ is putting up some numbers this year. How much could we have spent on him? Go figure.
May 15th, 20098:57 pm
Marv Kleeman – you sound like T Armas,Jr’s agent, but thanks. I am a member of the profession that Shakespeare would “first kill all”, but at the risk of exposure, my man, you made your case. There must be a downside somewhere.
Did I miss something on bloggers’ comments of whether we have 40 or 37 on the roster – I always thought that until Sept 1st, your active roster was limited to 25. So, if Medlen comes, doesn’t someone go?
Just askin’ folks!
May 15th, 20098:58 pm
Carroll Rogers – Can you ask Bobby Cox why he was against JoJo for the bullpen and now he’s for it?
May 15th, 20099:01 pm
How ironic! I’m calling someone a loser and I’m on a blog while watching a baseball game with my dog on a Friday night! Ahhh, I ain’t nothin but a woosie.
Guys on MLB TV just showed the Chipper Jones HR replay…and they even started chuckling about the Slam-Wow comment. What and idiot. : )
May 15th, 20099:04 pm
throw in a beer and it sounds like a pretty good evening to me (of course, the game will end early enough so I can still go out if I want to…)
Yeah, if he gets his throwing together…he’s gonna be some kind of a baseball player! I think David Ross is helping him with his footwork like Chip and Joe said.
That throw kinda fooled me, too, though–looked like it was gonna be way high. But thankfully Escobar caught it and applied the tag. Ya know, if you count the pickoff one of our pitchers made the other day, McCann’s caught 40% of would-be base stealers! Without that pickoff, it’s still 30%! (Would be higher if it wasn’t for Greg Gibson’s bad call.)
I hope he is around Atlanta for a good, long time.
ME, TOO!!</i Hope he spends his entire career here!
May 15th, 20099:05 pm
FrankieKnuckles – I moved to Key Largo about 11 years ago and eventually settled close to Big Pine Key about 5 years ago.
I told Carroll today about running the Seven Mile Bridge Run which is from western Marathon to Bahia Honda Key. Seven miles across that beautiful blue water sounds like a lot of fun – especially about 5 minutes after I finished.
May 15th, 20099:06 pm
You know, I’m really quite happy that we got Vazquez. Out of all the pitcher that could have been gotten, he has the ability to be quite exciting between striking out 10 per game and the flirts with danger. Sort of like watching a closer for 6 innings a game.
May 15th, 20099:11 pm
Anyone know why Tommy Hanson isn’t starting for Gwinett tonight? Bueno got the nod.
jeff321 probably because he was going to give Jo-Jo every opportunity to succeed as a starter first because a) that’s what he’s always done and b) that’s what they needed out of him. but that didn’t work, so they go to plan B.
May 15th, 20099:12 pm
Just saw a replay of Smith from Colorado tagging up on 3rd base (he made it home safe without a throw). The Pirates appealed at 3rd and the umpire called him out. Video replay showed that he did NOT leave early and should have remained safe. I know these teams have no bearing on the Braves…but I wanted to voice something here that I have felt baseball should do just like hockey. Why not have a “war room” like hocky where the head umpire gets on the phone in the ball park to MLB home office and let the team at the home office confirm the play? It only takes about 60 seconds in hockey…won’t make the baseball game too much longer. In this case, could cose Colorado the game since the score remains 1-0 Pittsburgh instead of a 1-1 tie…in the 8th inning too!!!
Watching the Farrah Fawcett documentery . So Sad ! Pray for Farrah !!
May 15th, 20099:13 pm
cabravesfan – How about a few glasses of Jim Beam and ginger? Hey, I could have gone to the club ( where my friends who still want to be 21 are currently in route ) but I said why spend 80 bucks when I can follow the game and stay out of trouble.
keylargo – I bet, I would probably yack at this stage of my life. There used to be a day when I played sports year round and could run like the wind – and then I met college. Ohhh Glory Days.
May 15th, 20099:14 pm
I’m calling someone a loser and I’m on a blog while watching a baseball game with my dog on a Friday night! Ahhh, I ain’t nothin but a woosie. FrankieKnuckles
But your dog is wagging his tail faithfully waiting for a command to bring you another beer while someone else’s dog is hiding under the bed, hoping to avoid contact.
There is a BIG difference in the two. And not knowing Cabravesfan,(and hoping she will take a joke) I will jestfully say you might be as lucky as a man can get!
Loaf Garret on his blackberry tossing with Schafer in the outfield
MAN….I’m already back out here? Just startin to get comfortable on the bench.
May 15th, 20099:17 pm
although I personally would rather drink lighter fluid near an open flame, whatever works for you
My dog is snoring in her bed about 6 inches from where I am sitting. She is just bitter i will not give her any of the beer I stole from my father’s fridge…but I’ve only got 2 (well, 1 now) and the night is young
Andruw Jones with 5 run bomb!!
Efrim, Hanson has been bumped ahead a day in the GBraves rotation to replace Medlen. I believe he is scheduled to start tomorrow.
I don’t care what none of y’all say, Yunel’s frosted look is H.O.T.! With that chiseled jaw and bubble behind it makes him the hottest Brave.
(no offense to Mcann, McFan, he’s cute to but another year or two and gravity is going to be unkind to him i think)

“I believe there is a role for everybody in this world,” Reyes said. “Who knows? This might be a blessing in disguise, and this might have been my calling from Day 1. I don’t know. I guess we’ll find out.”
May 15th, 20099:19 pm
is it possible to mute only Chip?
May 15th, 20099:20 pm
After that K…Javy is now leading the NL in strikeouts at 65…Peavy is 2nd with 61. Interesting.
May 15th, 20099:21 pm
For all you Chip haters.. Follow my lead and watch the ALT feed when he’s on!
May 15th, 20099:22 pm
I’ll try to explain this quickly. Each team has a 40 man roster of which only 25 can actually be on the major league roster at one time. Players have to be on the 40 man in order to be sent back and forth between the majors and the minors. Since the Braves only have 38 players on their 40 man, no one has to be taken off in order to make room for Melden. The Braves will however have to make room on the major league 25 man roster though. Since Melden isn’t scheduled to pitch until Tuesday, they don’t have to decide who goes to Gwinnett until then.
May 15th, 20099:23 pm
I don’t actually hate Chip at all, for whatever reason I am just finding him very annoying tonight…and I only have one option for the game so I’m kinda stuck
That was a quasi-respectable inning for Javy.
May 15th, 20099:25 pm
I really hope Bobby is smart enough not to trot Javy back out for the 7th inning. He has pitched really well and he has 93 pitches…no need in letting him ruin his own performance.
Was in the bathroom and heard someone SCREAM on the tv, ran to the tv and realized it was just Chip Carey yelling at the popout from the DBacks hitter.
May 15th, 20099:27 pm
Nolan Ryan had a 15-game stretch….12 CGs… TWO no-hitters. Dominant.
Didn’t you post about your dog drinking a lot? I remember something about you having to share with her. But a woman who has a dog and they both drink beer is a great start for something. Maybe a beer shortage.
Here is the bridge that the Seven Mile race is run on. All water the entire race.
May 15th, 20099:29 pm
Efrim, I may be wrong about Hanson. The gbraves are playing a doubleheader in Buffalo tonight and I believe Hanson is starting the second game. I plan on checking their web site throughout the evening for updates.
After listening to Chris Berman & Rick Sutcliffe for about 1/3 inning the other day, I’ll take Chip Carey as one of our announcers.
sent her to detox when I went to Vegas…she has yet to forgive me
May 15th, 20099:30 pm
I was just thinking how weird it was for old man Loaf Anderson to have Swagga Like Us as his walk up music. Then I realized that after my birthday next week, I’ll only be 1 year younger than him.(If I knew how to do those emoticons, I’d insert a sad face here.)
Fred, Efrim, I read somewhere that they moved his start to tomorrow vs. Lehigh Valley. I’ll try to find it…
May 15th, 20099:31 pm
Dangit! No double there.
his AVG is .277. Was up to .286 after that hit in his first AB. Well, there’s still time.
Ah, I don’t hate Chip either.. Just find him about 1000X more annoying that anyone on this blog!
May 15th, 20099:32 pm
Top of the seventh and Vazquez slices up Whitesell, who robbed McCann of a hit in the bottom of the sixth. Payback.
May 15th, 20099:33 pm
Its time to yank Javy. I don’t care if he gets out of this inning unscathed or not.. He just looks out of gas.
How about Southern Comfort? I discovered at a young age most girls like/tolerate it! Just throwin that out there in case you feel like catching a flight to the east coast and making some mistakes. kidding,
May 15th, 20099:34 pm
Ah, here it is, directly from Ms. Rogers’ excellent piece regarding his call-up:
“Medlen was originally scheduled to start tonight against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs in Allentown, Pa. Now he’ll pitch an inning or two to tune up, following Hanson, whose start was pushed back from the second game of a doubleheader Friday to Saturday. Medlen will head to Atlanta from Pennsylvania.”
3-1 count to Snyder… 100 pitches. Get the bullpen ready Bobby.
Chipper has a senior moment. Heads for the dug-out on two outs.
May 15th, 20099:36 pm
Inside the park HR for Yankees. Gardner.
SoCo is…passable but I am more of a vodka/teliqua girl
May 15th, 20099:37 pm
obviously I can’t spell
I meant tequila
Good inning, Javy!
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
