No, that wasn’t the Braves…not even they are that bad.
OK, maybe he’ll make one…
My age? Hmm…I musta missed when you guessed it.
Other than Seeing Medlens Girl…
That was a An Awfully boring game! I had to turn it to Rasslin since I knew that the AWFense Wasn’t gonna even try to mount an effort to put a few on the board….
May 21st, 200910:00 pm
Arent you immune to all this crap by the braves yet? Better get used to it, we still have 3/4 of a season ahead of us, and the future doesnt look promising……..go get a bud light and go to bed.
It’s a fun place, I promise
May 21st, 200910:01 pm
Mean? I almost proposed to you, cabravesfan. Now there are times that I wouldn’t want to be near you, at least temporarily. Like maybe after the USC, Oregon St. game, for example. But not now, my dear, not now.
May 21st, 200910:02 pm
you just had to bring that up??? I was so drunk by the end of that game I stopped caring
May 21st, 200910:03 pm
As things are looking, If I was the Phillucks GM, I would go get a top notch pitcher to backup Hamels and put this thing away………they would be division champions a month after they make the move if it is done before the ASB
May 21st, 200910:04 pm
I knew that the AWFense Wasn’t gonna even try to mount an effort to put a few on the board….(Tomahawkin)
no doubt the offense can be….well,..offensive.
May 21st, 200910:05 pm
I heard JF could play some SS if needed, he used to play SS while in grade school.
CaBravesFan is a young girl in my book
That’s sweet, keylargo but I am not that “young”
Immune? Heck no! I expect some entertainment…sometimes even shutouts have something int’resting in them, but not tonight! That game was horrid. No excuse for the way they played.
You’re right, though–3/4 of a season left! Whoo-hoo! Maybe McCann’ll even hit a homer or an RBI double during one of those games…you never know…
go get a bud light and go to bed.
That’ll be the day! Even when I’m old enough to drink, I’ll be too young!
Really? Hmm…gimme a little more time to think it over…
May 21st, 200910:07 pm
MFin04 (Have to Go!) (8:12 pm): “This is Jeff Bennet-esque”
You mean his two shut-out innings yesterday against these here Rockies? Or his two shut-out innings on 13 May against the Mets? Or his two shut-out innings on 16 Apr against the Marlins?
12-0 and then 9-0
I’m Telling you guys that this team gets too Fcking Complacent when they Play the Jubroni Teams of the league…
We’ve Sucked Against Arizona, Washington, Pittsburgh and took just 2 of 4 from the AAA Colorado Springs Rockies…!
Does any one Other than me who watches the Games Feel like the Braves want to make a statement against New Yawk And Philly Therefore We play some of our best baseball (Other than the 3rd game of the year)
But When They Play the Jubroni teams of the league We Slack Off with the Mindset that the opposing team is gonna lay down to us…When in Fact That teams are No longer afraid to face the Braves…Hence The Beanings by opposing pitchers
It’s Like These Guys act like they are on Spring Break when they Return Home, hence the record….WTF Guys???
May 21st, 200910:08 pm
What I think he may be saying, is he’s THAT old.
take your time! We’re not going anywhere
Votto diagnosed with inner ear infection.
keylargo’s favorite movie is American Beauty.
May 21st, 200910:11 pm
yeah I know, it’s just that nobody’s called me a “young girl” in a while…someone at work today did tell me I looked like a college freshman- still trying to figure out if that is a good thing or a bad thing
May 21st, 200910:13 pm
You mean some of these bloggers possibly could call you Mommie? (Age wise of course. I would never insult you by insinuating you were related to some of these teenagers!)
May 21st, 200910:14 pm
That’s great news for Votto.
That Marlins clip? Wow there were, not even exaggerating, 45 people there at the most.
Wow- the Pens turned a close game into a route in about 4 minutes behind a simply brilliant goal from Evgeni Malkin (his 3rd of the night) and an empty netter…7-4 late in the 3rd (and a massive fight has broken out). Apparently defense was optional tonight
May 21st, 200910:15 pm
OK, I’m not that old either…at least I hope there are no children that young on this blog!
May 21st, 200910:17 pm
Yeah, it really is.
cabravesfan, it’s always a compliment to be taken as younger than you are. What you have to watch out for, though, is, was it sincere?
That first one went down so well, do you mind if I have another?
Hey, what did you think of my proposed, ironic trade, before? If you saw it, that is. You may have been on the way home.
May 21st, 200910:20 pm
The swill that spews forth on this blog while a loss is in progress is enough to give one the literary heaves. Hey LEW. Now we know. He’s mortal. NEXT.
May 21st, 200910:21 pm
Your man doing a shirtless interview on tv!
May 21st, 200910:22 pm
It was very sincere…and by all means have another! I’m about to open my 2nd of the night.
Are you refering to your trade for Andruw? I saw it right before I left my office…the only problem is Druw has been playing well enough that I doubt the Rangers would part with him (irony you are a fasinating creature!) But I love Druw, always have, always will. I would take him back in a heartbeat
Adam WainWright 8 innings pitched 4 hits against the Cubs…
Anyone Want to Do That trade For J.D. Screw Again…?
May 21st, 200910:23 pm
OMG Mac is topless on the after show. I know a few girls who are dying right now lol
May 21st, 200910:24 pm
Shirtless Mac?!? DAMN YOU MLB PACKAGE THAT CUTS MY FEED OFF RIGHT AFTER THE GAME! DAMN YOU!!! (ok, sorry…that was a little creepy…my bad…won’t happen again…maybe)
Eeeh…thanks for the warning…
TV’s in use…
I think I just validated your post
Well, Chipper might not be in there tomorrow against Halladay. Said he “popped something” in his toe when he hit first base on that sixth-inning groundout. Said he’ll have to see how it feels in morning but already some swelling in the joint.
May 21st, 200910:25 pm
Considering all the arm troubles he has had. NO
Well maybe not arm troubles, but he hasn’t pitched THAT much since he joined the Cards. Granted he did close for awhile.
Holy cow…I needa go to bed!
May 21st, 200910:26 pm
Interview ended a while back..sorry
Think again,bravos. I know these girls. lol
I’d be damned Chipper can just about pop anything.
May 21st, 200910:27 pm
It could’ve been worse, right DOB?
THAT’S OK! Believe me…
Think I better turn in…maybe…
May 21st, 200910:28 pm
Haha…Ashley’ll prob’ly kill him when he gets home! Well, maybe not…
May 21st, 200910:29 pm
Speaking of what richbrave just posted @ 10:20, RHR, I had another idea, tonight (one more and it’s an all-time personal record) I audio-taped some of the negativity of the blog tonight. Got most of it right after the grand slam. I can wire up a trigger, to your daughter’s door. If anyone tries to break in, the recording will go off. They’ll think it’s an angry, ugly, ready-to-kill mob in her room. By the time your daughter gets back to her room, I’m betting the entire apt. house is vacated! And it’s a lot less destructive than Chop Chop’s C4. Whaddya think?
Rob from SC
Will Chipper sit out against all Cy Pitchers. First Santana, now Halladay
OMG McFann go to sleep! It’s past 10. I realize that shirtless Mac delayed your typical departure time….
May 21st, 200910:30 pm
Well I guess Chipper is the Millenium version of Chris Chandelier (Chandler)…
Braves Without Chipper 2omorrow nite…It’s going to be ugly seeing our AAA lineup against Halliday…
Just what Happens in September, Wonder if Chipper will sit out with these nagging injuries if the team is behind 3 games….
May 21st, 200910:31 pm
Tonight, Randall Delgado pitched 5 innings allowing 6 hits, 1 walk, and 2 runs (both earned) while striking out 3. He’s back.
If I had a way to record the after shows for you cabraves I would. You miss some great stuff on the braves live things.
And Mac is just so smart, knows exactly how to put things in perspective and exactly what to say. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that he’ll never be caught saying things like “if OBP is so important why don’t they put that on the scoreboard?” and “I just want this season to be over, I don’t care”.
Haha…yeah, I’m going. But the conversation just got good!
I didn’t see the interview…but I’m cool with that…
May 21st, 200910:32 pm
LOL Tom…good idea.
Funny thing is OBP IS on the scoreboard…lol
May 21st, 200910:33 pm
I rewound the interview. Just watched it for the 3rd time. I love that kid. But not for the way he looks shirtless.
I like your idea a lot (especially the lack of mess and dead bodies rotting in the rubble) but there is something…oddly appealing about blowing up your roommates with C4 because they tried to break into your room. Serves them right!
I can see I have my work cut out for me… and I did say I was sorry for the creepiness
May 21st, 200910:34 pm
believe me I know! I would give anything to be able to watch Bravs Live…I love watching the interviews and all
Gotta agree with ya, there. Would have liked to have heard what he had to say…maybe if they had a manuscript of it…
Whoops…am I still here? Heh heh…oops…
May 21st, 200910:36 pm
Thanks for the info on Chipper, DOB.
And as we all know, toes are not to be trifled with.
May 21st, 200910:37 pm
Start doing columns on how bad the braves suck, stop trying to be positive. Whatever you write seems to have an opposite effect on the universe. You should no longer be allowed to mention Chipper, type the hitting artist formally known as Larry. LOL
May 21st, 200910:38 pm
lol McFann. You need a tv in your room. With a DVR.
May 21st, 200910:39 pm
Oh dear lord, they just called him Scott Medlen.
Thanks for the update, DOB. I was waiting up on it.
Wow, other than 1 DOB, there were 13 straight posts from the ladies, after the topless BMac. I wouldn’t mind, but you’re all on my team. Once the opposition gets wind of this, we’re losers. They’ll be throwing a naked BMac up on the big screen, every time we’re up.
RHR I love that kid. But not for the way he looks shirtless.
I love him, too…never seen him shirtless. And yet, my life is still complete…
You need a tv in your room. With a DVR.
You’re forgiven. I like watching interviews, too…but whenever Braves Live! comes on, there always seems to be “something else” on TV…and I’ve never gotten into pushing my parents around.
OK…am I still up? And taking pot-shots at my mann no less! For shame…
I hate to hafta leave, now, but–
May 21st, 200910:41 pm
I hate to burst your bubble but Mac wouldn’t have to be naked…sorry
You do have one big advantage, though. You’re single
May 21st, 200910:42 pm
Yuck! Anyone read the article about Bobby Cox at FoxSports by Tracy Ringolsby?
Lowlight: “Had both knees replaced (for a second time) last winter,” said Cox. “I’m ready to go another 15 years.”
May 21st, 200910:43 pm
Good Night McFann!
May 21st, 200910:45 pm
cabravefan–good point @ 10:33. There’s something to be said about satisfaction.
May 21st, 200910:46 pm
David O’Brien: “Well, Chipper might not be in there tomorrow against Halladay. Said he “popped something” in his toe when he hit first base on that sixth-inning groundout.”
What a shock from such a durable guy :;
May 21st, 200910:48 pm
but of course the end result is you are homeless, wanted for murder, and most definitely not getting your security deposit back
Should be a fun fifteen years, braves70. I can’t wait.
May 21st, 200910:56 pm
I in no way find mac sexy..ok
Braves Live is on again..Bmac bought to be on again…just saying
May 21st, 200910:58 pm
Oh well….awful game.
chip off the ol block
May 21st, 200910:59 pm
Well i went to go see John Smoltz start of his career with Boston, and he pitched a good game
3 innings, no runs, 2 Ks, and one hit (that should of been called an error on the shortstop)
after he pitched he signed autographs on the way out and i had the awesome, awesome awesome chance of getting his autograph ON HIS ROOKIE CARD!!! so this is a good night regardless of the Braves getting killed tonight…
I also just found out about us possibly getting rid of Frenchy? if that is true, i’d like to see Mark DeRosa come in, he’ll play many positions, (to fill Infante’s shoes) and be able to give us that pop we seem to be missing
also sad to see Medlin getting knocked around tonight, i was really hoping that he would do great tonight, and we got Roy tomorrow night (my best pitcher, against my batters in fantasy baseball, great) with Chip possibly being out, i’m thinking about not watching the game haha
DOB, so you see a move (trade) happening soon? or later around the all star break?
I was talking about our (the ladies) baseball team. If you can’t focus, I may have to take you out of the 3-hole. RHR has been pushing for it.
Poor McFann, you older women may be a bad influence on her. I’ll be keeping my eye on you guys, you can count on that.
May 21st, 200911:01 pm
I can focus! Really I can! I promise
May 21st, 200911:03 pm
I’m not sure how old McFann is but I can’t be too much older than her.
Good! I’m moving you up in the order.
Shoot!!! I forgot all about the deposit.
May 21st, 200911:04 pm
5th is fine with me
May 21st, 200911:05 pm
Hanson pitched six scoreless innings of one-hit ball with nine strikeouts tonight for his third win. He leads the IL with 73 strikeouts in 53-2/3 innings.
Frank from KS
May 21st, 200911:06 pm
Whewww (wiping sweat from brow…..Lol). I finally got caught back up from the last blog to this one.
I agree with your comments on Peavy (which at the time of your comments, he hadn’t rejected the trade yet)….and now he has…and he’s a definate prima-donna.
AND from other blog with your links to the George Brett comments. Thanks…and all I can say is….well, George was the top dog IMO when he was playing and has a right to say what he wants about the organization or for the organization. They are winning for the first time in a long time. Give Hillman SOME credit…people (talking about the sportscasters/sports media in the Kansas City-market).
May 21st, 200911:07 pm
Excuse me Dave but you said KJ hadn’t fallen on his face yet. Just what exactly does he need to do or not do for you to consider Kelly as an absolute failure in the leadoff position?
May 21st, 200911:10 pm
I didn’t realize you were that young. It’s tough to tell from the screen names. I’m glad you’re OK with 5th. I’ve got Bobby’s problem, well one of them, who to put 4th. McFann is in high school, I’m guessing 16 or so. I doubt you’re any younger.
I believe you, I believe you.
May 21st, 200911:12 pm
Nope not younger. Older, I actually graduate High School in a couple of days. But, usually when I post either on here on mlb.com, people tend to think I’m older than I am. I’m not one to write childish things, and I’ve been posting on the internet since I was 14.
yeah, you gotta be careful with those damn deposits! I lived in a place in college where I left the apartment 100 times nicer looking (after my roommate left in the middle of the night, literally, and didn’t clean anything!!!), spent 6 hours cleaning the place from top to bottom, and the manager ran off with my money…good times
And now DOB is fanning the flames
May 21st, 200911:19 pm
I figured that the number in bravos2249 was her age. I also didn’t know that she is a she. I guess I don’t pay much attention sometimes.
(Oh, my other guess was that the “2249″ stood for the year of the Braves’ next World Series title.)
May 21st, 200911:20 pm
Women are a lot less childish than men, regardless of how old they are. Heck, just read the blog! McFann is innocent, and I hope she can retain that for as long as possible, but she is very mature, considering her age. Also, very smart and funny. (and no, McFann, you don’t have to thank me in the am)
May 21st, 200911:22 pm
OK, Chop Chop, what part of the 2249 is her age? Wait, did you just add it up?
With medlens rocky start that was definately his nerves,makes me appreciate what we’ve gotten out of jj and from the start he has pitched awesome.the funny thing is the fact that out of Reyes,Medlin,and jj,I think jj has the least best stuff to work with but he has the best mental game and that’s what matters most of thwe time in any walk of life.
Frank from KS, totally agree on Brett. He was far and away, my favorite non-Brave when I was growing up. I even like the F-bombs. Doesn’t bother me a bit.
As for Peavy. I’m not as down on him as I was this afternoon. Because, I ultimately think he’ll still get traded and he’ll have say in where he goes. I guess that’s the downfall of giving a guy a no-trade clause, and why JS never did it. Can’t have the player having the upperhand, when you’re trying to build a club (or tear it down).
What I think is ironic, is that away from Petco Park, he’s basically been an average pitcher (3.80 ERA). So ironically, we got Javier Vazquez for Tyler Flowers, and would have had to give up Hanson or Heyward for Jake, and probably are getting about the same pitcher when he’s not pitching at Petco. Too funny.
Ultimately, it’s his right to pick where he went, but that doesn’t mean the fans arent’ gonna still rag on him. Doug Gotlieb on ESPN tonight was saying that Jake BETTER deliver wherever he gets traded to, because with the way he’s apparently gonna handpick where he gets traded to, the media is gonna be on him the second he slips, especially at the price it’s going to cost whicher team gets him, to get him.
May 21st, 200911:23 pm
Hey, the old ladies do not want to see B Mac without a shirt either. He is a very likable young baseball player coming up but his appearance does not come in to play. My taste come in with Glavine. I saw Glavine at a charity event in a tuxedo and he was just “breathtakingly”
Also, I don’t think that McCann’s fans are in it for his looks he just reminds them of the guy next door or someone they think they could know.
On the thought of Andruw, I would always loved him since he was always the most handsome on the team and he has a sweet swing like Chipper.
Speaking of Chipper he is the complete specimen of what a tough and complete male is but he is not handsome by any long shot.
I have mentioned this before but the young ladies in my office loves Bobby Cox. I appreciate Bobby and do not agree with the insults and malice towards him, but how in the H*!! can Bobby Cox be the appealing one to these ladies who are 28-35?
Infante is handsome, Javy Lopez is handsome, David Justice is handsome, Andruw is handsome and so is my Glavine.
The really handsome guy is CARLOS BELTRAN. Imagine that-BMAC & Beltran
May 21st, 200911:25 pm
Cheese-Whiz I thought I was one of the Young Cats on here being 25…
I stay off the mlbblogs…too many kids who don’t know squat about baseball (especially the business side) run those blogs…
I usually live on here and on the Philly.com/phillies forum because matute people for the most part are the major consensus on these forums/blogs
May 21st, 200911:26 pm
oldschool, good points at 11:22 about Medlen vis-a-vis Jurrjens. Jurrjens is the exception, and I think sometimes people forget.
But Medlen looked about as nervous as I’ve ever seen a pitcher look tonight. Really did. And afterward, talking to us, he still looked and sounded very nervous.
May 21st, 200911:27 pm
Getting back to Andruw. I’ve been following the Ranger boxes. He’s only starting twice a week, and usually DH. I don’t think he’s that valuable to them that they wouldn’t consider a trade. He fits what we need perfectly, don’t you think?
You say you loved Druw. He used to be my favorite player. My first e-mail, started out “bravesfan25″. My first computer’s name was “Andruw Jones”.
May 21st, 200911:28 pm
I thought she was 2,249 years old, Tom. I also thought that it might be an apocalyptic prediction for the year of the end of the world. In fact, that number has been my rock of salvation during my half-hearted preparations for the end of the Mayan calendar.
cabravesfan: what flames am I fanning? I must’ve missed something.
May 21st, 200911:31 pm
From the foxsports.com Cox story:
“He won a professional sports record 14 consecutive division titles and did it with a steady reinforcement of talent. During those 14 years, the primary starters on the Braves included five different catchers, eight first basemen, five second basemen, three third basemen, four shortstops and 20 outfielders. He had 18 different pitchers make at least 20 starts in a season, and nine different pitchers serve as the closer.”
Huh. Funny they don’t mention the three HOF pitchers that anchored the rotation for the majority of the 14 years? I would think that’s a pretty important thing to leave out of the WHOLE story.
Other than that, it’s a nice story. Makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. Ooops. I guess that was just the feeling you get before you throw up a little bit in your mouth. Never mind.
chris from md
Do you think Parr gets sent down soon? Perhaps Acosta gets a call up?
Chris from MD
May 21st, 200911:33 pm
I see our old buddy Scott Thorman signed a AAA contract with Kansas City. KC, where old Braves go if they don’t go to Washington or Texas.
May 21st, 200911:34 pm
“I thought she was 2,249 years old, Tom. I also thought that it might be an apocalyptic prediction for the year of the end of the world. In fact, that number has been my rock of salvation during my half-hearted preparations for the end of the Mayan calendar. Chop Chop
That was my 2nd guess.
May 21st, 200911:35 pm
have to understand medlen’s nervousness tonight. everyone expected hanson and so did he. he knew he had a lot to try to live up to, or at least felt like he did. im anxious for the 2nd start i bet he settles down.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
