What the hell has gotten in to Francoeur
Francœur shoots a single up the middle. 1st and 2nd with one out (Prado lined out to LF on a good play by the left fielder).
Must have read Keith Law’s Comments

Diory Is Due, Feel A Gapper for his First Hit! Come On…D!
We’re not hormonal, PWH, we’re just nervous because that June Freight Train is coming. We want to win all we can between now and May 31st. Excuse us for overreacting a little bit. I mean, you of all people should be able to overlook that.
He changed bats, Rob.

Gonzo is up in the bullpen. Joe mentions that it is his birthday.
Schafer can give him a nice present (an insurance run) with a base hit.
Schafer will come through here
Come on Schafer.
Jeff Francoeur now has his first three hit game since April 17th. Go Frenchy!
Lose the chewing gum, Diory.
Come on Schafer!
What Is That Awfulf Music they Play for K-Fer…?
May 23rd, 20099:23 pm
Ground out ends the inning. On to the ninth with a 2 run lead.
OK, Come on Gonzo. Lets make it a bit less interesting than last night ~_~
May 23rd, 20099:25 pm
Wells, Lind, and Rolen due up for the Jays.
I have like 9 million things to do tonight, lets not get dramatic here in the 9th please.
Gonzo, Let’s Do This!
May 23rd, 20099:26 pm
Come one Gonzo! Need 3 outs!!!
May 23rd, 20099:27 pm
1 Down. 2 to go!
Tomahawkin @ 9:22 soulja boy turn my swag on..
I’m 38 years old and even I can’t escape that foolishness.
On a 3-2 count, Wells skies a fly ball to center field.
Schafer loses it in the sky! But, Schafer adjusts at the last second and make the put out.
May 23rd, 20099:28 pm
Good for Frenchy!! He was stare’n a Wellman cryin’ jag right in the face.
Sure makes our prospects rosier if he can keep it up!
May 23rd, 20099:29 pm
The rain is coming down pretty hard right now.
Lind doubles to right field.
Gonzo, Come On!!!!
Here comes the interesting part
Mark in PA
…and the Phillies already lost!
i love gonzo but he has been getting hit hard lately…..
Well we know Gonzo isn’t exactly a 1-2-3 kind of closer. Gotta hold on.
Frenchy's on Fire!
May 23rd, 20099:30 pm
Jeff Francoeur is 8 for 13 in his last four games. That’s a .615 average.
man, that 4th run is huge now, c’mon Gonzo, please stop making this a habit
May 23rd, 20099:31 pm
RHR, Agreed I can’t stand that Soulja Boy Pop Tart Garbage!
Umpire is trying to F Us Over, Come On Mike!
That was a strike!
Man! Gonzo just can’t get a strike called. He has struck Rolen out at least twice, and the ump gives him a walk.
Men on first and second with 1 out.
Overbay at the plate.
May 23rd, 20099:32 pm
BullShyt! Why do we Get The Worst Fcking Umpiring in every game?
wow….he just struck out rolen twice and yet hes standing at first base.
does the bullpen have one more DP in them?
Well, the walk sets up a double play possibility.
Come on, Gonzo, get it done!
Gonzo throws about 6 Strikes in that AB and yet they guy walks. DJD.
Mets losing in the 9th, Philly already lost. C’mon Gonzo.
Gonzo is getting hijacked. This is bullshyte.
Man This Umpire Is Making Me wanto to get Violent with the Empty Beer Cans…
May 23rd, 20099:33 pm
Gonzo is gonna blow it! I can’t stand this, where is the HOOK?
I’m sorry but the ump is squeezing him this inning and the check swing should have been a strike out.
Ground ball through the right side. One run scores. First and third.
Where’s Cox? He’s been a chicken this year.
May 23rd, 20099:34 pm
Umpire missed the check swing.
Good throw by Frenchy.. close play at third. In the meantime, Gonzo isn’t looking very dominant this year!
only one out and runners on the corner…. a fly ball ties this game.
If he blows this………
My neighbors are building an ark.
Now look at this.
NO, NO, NO , NO , NO !!!!!!!
I’m gonna die! Cox is an idiot again!
gonzo has lost it tonight.
May 23rd, 20099:35 pm
Gonzo has lost it.
Happy Birthday Gonzalez. BTW, you suck as a closer.
Bedtime for Bonzo?
Put Soriano In Now!!!
And Cuss Out The Umpire Bobby!!!!
This is ugly. Bring in Soriano.
Happy birthday Gonzo! Loser!
First of all, Rolen struck out twice but magically got a walk…that’s on the ump, not Gonzo.
Maybe Soriano can do it here.
Gonzo walks Barajas on four pitches.
Here comes Bobby with the hook.
Millar to pinch hit for the pitcher.
May 23rd, 20099:36 pm
we went from having this series won to potentially having it lost in about 5 minutes…. this would be a crushing loss and how bad do you feel for lowe????
why does it have to be like this EVERY SINGLE F$@@#ING game
Soriano to the rescue please
Now Cox decides to lumber out to the mound to yank Gonzo. Hopefully Soriano will be able to close this one out.
You’d think Umps would give you calls when it’s effin RAINING and it’s the NINTH!
There were a few boos for Gonzalez as he left the field.\
On comes Soriano.
11 strikes, 13 balls. Yikes!
May 23rd, 20099:37 pm
Soriano ???? What?
No Carlyle? WTF !!!!!!
Jeez, with a win here, we could finally have a winning homestand. Not meant to be I guess.
Gonzalez is a wild card. He was squeezed pretty bad by the umpire but still this guys is incnsistent. Maybe Soriano should be the closer.
May 23rd, 20099:38 pm
That Rolen at bat was key. He had him and the ump gave him that base, then he loses his control completely. Lets go Soriano.
There’d be a few more boos if some of us were there.
wow. i cant believe soriano has not come in a situation this year with runners already on base.
Next months is going to be a tough one……….we get the yankees, cubs, brewers a not so easy reds team and the redsox twice………..and then the phillies………wow………..we could end june back in 4th place.
Only a few boos? Strange.
Second of all, I see Gonzo thru FranJohnson colored glasses. (ie – he’s cute so it’s okay).
(Its not really okay but you see what I did there, right?)
May 23rd, 20099:39 pm
They have to make every game close huh? Dang. Too much excitement. Why can’ we ever get any “easy” wins?
The rain has got to be hell on Mac’s glasses.
Nice. Strike Out!
Bobby did not pat Gonzo on the butt
holy sh*t we are getting screwed….
Gonzo is a wildcard but he’s a lot like KK. If he gets the control down he’ good, when he misses his spots, well….
May 23rd, 20099:40 pm
Big out there!
Look on the bright side, Hammy’s vacationing again…
the ball dont lie!!!!
Clutch K, By Soriano….
ONE More Baby….!
Soriano strikes out Millar for the second out!
Bases loaded, Braves ahead 4-3.
Soriano !!!!! YES !
I have said it many times…………Gonzo is not doing a closers job…………soriano should be the closer no matter what…………
This is one of the things I cant understand about bobby………….that and KJ and JF………..those 3 strikes are the ones the get him out.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
