you can hear some dude heckling frenchy in the background
Coach (2010 or Bust)
Josh Anderson has 10 stolen bases. The entire Braves roster has the same. Sorry, I just couldn’t resist.
Golden Boy does it again!
Moon pie and Royal Crown cola for me please.

Rob in Mobile-
Cheerwine? Now, I am a big fan of anything cherry but that jusst sounds…wrong.
God he is pitiful. Just pitiful
Dip? as in tobacco? That’s funny! LOL!
My opinion might be slightly skewed since I don’t like desserts very much, but Moon Pies are disgusting. They’re mushy, marshmellowy, chocolate things. Bleh…
Well thats the Ballgame, Kamakaze Once again deserved a better fate for giving a chance for his team 2 win…
I said it before that Plain and Simple this is a display of Uninspired baseball tonight…
I know this game isn’t over but they seem like they are just trying to get to the next off day. I don’t boo when I go to games but I Would if I was at the game tonight. It’s one thing to get shut down by great pitching but it’s another to don’t care about getting Punk’d by the Jubroni teams of the league
May 28th, 20091:11 am
I’m going to bed. Way to blow that three game sweep momentum against the Blue Jays in record time.
Sigh, I think it’s time to concede that this team is what it is. At best a third place team in the division.
I suggest that we ignore the Braves and use this blog to discuss Moon Pies. Much more healthy.
Thanks Coach I already said 10 but the good Doc said 9.
May 28th, 20091:12 am
looks like there are some strong feelings on the moon pie issue but like I said, marshmellowy, chocolatey goodness…yum!
SWEEP, SWEEP, SWEEP !!!
O wait, those aren’t the Blue Jays?
It’s just funny we swept the Jays and we got swept by the Giants.
And Mauer gets more Pub. than Mac.
Good Night Folks. I’ll try and be here “tonight” but I have prior things to attend to.
Necromancer, I worked at a rec. park for four years and had to clean bathrooms after a night of drunks would stink the place up like you wouldn’t believe. There’s no doubt that the woman are way worse then men! I puked more than oonce doing that filthy job.
Jalapeno moon pies?
That’s an interesting flavor.
Gives me a stomach ache just thinking about it…
Moon pie and Crown Royal. That’s the only way to watch these games.
Do we get bonus points for “conceding”? Geez people, it’s ok to be pissed that the team is playing poorly, but if you actually have given up as much as you claim, why are you still blogging about it at 1:15 am?
May 28th, 20091:13 am
McCann is the sheeeooott
We’re going to lose 7 in a row.
An RC cola and a moon pie, southern comfort!
May 28th, 20091:14 am
How adequate it was for chipper to give up on some of his sallary in order to “free some money and sign players to help us win”……………wonder if it has anything to do with him taking days of as he pleases. I mean……..someone in the stands sneezes and chipper takes himself out of the lineup……….who the hell is the manager? This team is a joke………….anarchy all around.
I said goodnight. But if that was Chipper he’d have given that ab up…sorry but I’ve seen it many times….okay gotta go bye.
It's moors you jerk
Moon pie and Crown Royal.
It’s moon pie and RC “Royal Crown” cola!
WOW, B-Macc Showed more heart tonight than the whole AWFense
Nuff Respect to B-Macc!
Brian McCann should be given a raise for that at bat. That’s just a great hitter with a great at bat. Wonderful. McFann can atleast be happy with the double. No RBI, but a great AB.
Rob in Mobile
cabravesfan, Cheerwine is actually pretty good. It’s just a “wild cherry” flavored soda, made with real cane sugar (in the glass bottle version) instead of corn syrup. I had the same reaction as you until I tried it. It’s been around for over 90 years, so they must be doing something right…..
May 28th, 20091:15 am
Thanks Schafer, you just put the bow on the present nobody wanted.
High School Wrestling Coach
Even after a loss, the boys need to have a good shower. Get really clean. Use lots of soap. C’mon boys, am I gonna haveta check if your clean?
You sound just like my other half…
I think she’s a communist for not liking moon pies!
Good night folks
I’ve been watching AZ play all season… There is NO WAY that we can beat them playing like this. They actually have an offense unlike SF.
May 28th, 20091:16 am
We just swept by the Giants.
Way to show ‘em how to have an at bat, Heap. Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s gonna filter down to anybody….yep. Schafer pops out on the first pitch. McCann’s gotta be thinking, “I busted my butt to get on base for that????”
The hammer comes down on a bunch of insects.
I think I’ll take your word for it
Alright, I gotta get some sleep. Night All! (and thanks for the info on the moon pies!)
How bout Jeff Francoeur for a box of moon pies?
That’s It!!! F… TP, F… Bobby C…And F..k, Frank Wren…No wonder why everyone stays away from the Ted the way this team plays with everyone’s emotions
Coach (Moon Pie, anyone?)
We like it here, we love here, we finally found a home. A what? A home a home away from home. The Dave O’Brien blog.
I’ve decided nobody on the braves wants to win accept mccann,Prado,and yunel
Really..damn, how many times you gonna tell us? I think we got it the first 100 times!
King of the Pig People!
If you have told me Braves would K 7 times….and 4 were by Chipper and not Schafer or Frenchy…I’d A) slap you B) slap you again c) trow something at you and D) have to take you to the emergency room.
May 28th, 20091:17 am
Its sad that a player is happy when he makes and out that isnt a strike out sad.
Giants are better than the Braves.
They have the same record, but they’re moving in opposite directions.
If You Guys Are Tired of this Pathetic display of an MLB team especially, Give Me A Hell Yeah!!!
Excluding the Starting pitching this Team Flat Out SUCKS!!!
May 28th, 20091:18 am
I’ll take BQ and Dixie cola, you can have the moon pie and RC.
What a joke management has put on the field. Happy days are hear again 1970’s.
Fa sho, dude!
I was looking for Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs to pop up with a camera crew!
I think a couple of moon pies sound about perfect now.
May 28th, 20091:19 am
Why not have somebody with a .410 gauge shotgun in the stadium after the game to take care of that seagull problem? Seriously.
Guys we have to consider the circadian Rhythem. The Body clock of the players. They are a good team and I see alot of you criticizing about our play. Remember we swept the first place Bluejays. The reason our offense was bad this series is because we were playing at 10pm-1 am local time. The players felt sleepy, their body was asleep. If these games were in the east then we would have won 2 out of 3. We were just unlucky because we were playing these games when our players are normally asleep. Imagine someone waking you up at midnight and asking you to do your duty. I bet you wouldnt be as efficent or as good at midnight as you would be during your normal circadian wake cycle.
So guys lets relax. I know we got swept but its not due to the lack of talent but due to the circadian rhythem.
May 28th, 20091:20 am
Josh Anderson is the savior!! Man, just think of how much better we’d be if we had Josh Anderson. My gosh, that dude is AWESOME! (Obviously I’m just kidding.)
You know things are bad when Moon Pies, RC, and Cheerwine are more popular things to discuss than Los Bravos. But hey, you gotta like the little things in life. And it’s better than discussing this train wreck of a game! Nite, all!
No moon pies.
I prefer a box of milkduds and a large black coffee.
We should ask DOB what flavors the Moon Pie team are thinking of adding.
How about y’all just all leave?
Pig People want to take over!
I betcha the Dbacks fans will show up with brooms on the first game of the series tomorrow.
I’m seriously considering skipping the next game. Watching Lowe give his all with no run support just might be too much for me right now.
I can’t believe we actually scored three runs tonight. That’s kind of amazing.
I think in spite of how much many of the guys out there wearing Braves jerseys suck we will kick some D-Back @$$. And not just because of DL and JJ and probably Vazquez. Just a different environment and while we may not have won there very much either we did beat ‘em up pretty good last year. We have to at least finish this road trip 3 and 4 so we can come home and get medival on the Cubs.
Wow, I can’t believe I just referenced a fifteen year old movie. But they Cubs got lucky and beat us up last year but they suck now and are probably going to get swept by the Dodgers so we gotta bounce back and start the homestand off right and hopefully also hit Alfonso Soriano in the ribs and have Yunel go out there and throwdown on Ted Lilly.
You know, I get why people are saying Blanco wouldn’t be any better than Schafer in center… actually I don’t. Schafer absolutely sucks and is not or wasn’t ready to play at this level. It’s a joke. He can’t even make contact. It’s one thing to hit the ball at people or in the air so you can’t utilize your speed but he doesn’t get on base, period.
We’re not as bad as we looked the past three day nor as good as the games before. Of couse the pitching plays a pretty big part but even still we have to make some changes soon or not only are we going to be out of the race we’re going to have to dismantly the team again at the trade deadline.
At least the moon pie conversation keeps our minds off the Braves’ problems.
Some what of a pleasant diversion.
DOB will think this has turned into a Moon Pie blog!
May 28th, 20091:21 am
In one of your posts you wrote something about RC Cola and Moon Pies. Both of those are pretty gross. I wouldn’t say I’m a Moon Pie Communist, just a regular Communist.
If I was Wren………..I would trade McCann to Boston for 3 minor leaguers………….the guy deserves to be in a better team………away from all this mediocrity.
May 28th, 20091:22 am
“Why not have somebody with a .410 gauge shotgun in the stadium after the game to take care of that seagull problem? Seriously.”
Won’t work. There are too many of them. You should see them all at some of the beaches out here.
I think a couple of moon pies sound about perfect now
Yes, too many Pig People oinking right now.
For all the talk of the Braves deficient bats, the bottom of the rotation has probably hurt us more than anything.
THE BRAVES ARE NOW 4-12 IN GAMES NOT STARTED BY LOWE/JURRJENS/VAZQUEZ
That’s .333 baseball. To put that in perspective, if they played .333 baseball all the time, it would translate to 109 losses.
The Braves have been very, very bad with Kawakami, Reyes, or Medlen on the mound.
The good news is that this won’t last. Between Glavine, Hanson, and in about to months, Hudson… the Braves are, IMO, likely to play winning baseball in the second half of the season with the 4/5 starters on the mound.
He just have to survive in the meantime. Here’s hoping. Obviously, a adding a bat will help a LOT. But getting the back end of the rotation fixed will help immensely.
TBF(n)K as Billy
May 28th, 20091:23 am
I havent been able to watch the braves at all here in oklahoma howeveer watching the free gameday thing on MLB.com I have to say without a bat my team looks like it is in for a long summer. Im going to phonix this weekend to watch the braves…mabey they get hot.
I think Chipper caught the SWING FLU/4K1GM VIRUS from Frenchy or Schafer.
A little negative perhaps and even worse, typos galore.
Meant to say “WE just have to survive…”
Oops! I’m claiming temporary insanity on talking about politics.
(Disclaimer: I’m not really a communist. Red isn’t even my favorite color!)
May 28th, 20091:25 am
Can I ask you a stupid question?
Are you from Rome?
If so, so am I.
I just don’t get to talk to the home folks here on the ole blog.
May 28th, 20091:26 am
Was McCann auditioning for “dancing with the stars” tonight?
it’s not too early to go for next year’s #1 draft pick is it?
May 28th, 20091:27 am
sure, we know the truth! ;P
May 28th, 20091:28 am
Hey, what’s wrong with Chipper? Did y’all see that game? Man!
I go to school in Rome.
Why does it always look like every Cardinal is on the juice?
May 28th, 20091:29 am
You better get used to people who are making responses like this because we tired of they way this team has played for the last three days and expect more of it in Arizona unless this team gets it’s A..s Serious…
And If you Don’t like it then so be it!
May 28th, 20091:30 am
Does every team have to have a player on the All-Star team?
A communist fan would know that three year plans are always a failure. (The Braves of 2007-2009 are evidence).
May 28th, 20091:31 am
Im from Rome………My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next. …
KC, you’re dreaming if you think Kawakami is EVER gonna come out of this rotation this year.
What up yall I heard you guys need a big bat.
Mitchell – Last year in AZ was awesome but this looks just like the year before last. Same pattern… Spanked in SF, hop on a plane to Phoenix, spanked in AZ.
I hope that doesn’t happen but I haven’t seen anything that tells me it will be better. Especially tonight. Monday all goes back to Javy’s poor decision in the 5th (and Jerry Meals behind the plate). Yesterday goes back to Medlen walking Lincecum. Tonight we just got the snot beat out of us and probably lost Chipper.
AZ has Justin Upton, Mark Reynolds, and Gerardo Parra all hitting the snot outta the ball. And I haven’t even mentioned their pitching. It’s going to suck being a Braves fan in AZ for the next 4 days.
Never have had much of a use for RC cola but I like moon pies. They are quite good if you microwave them a little bit to melt the marshmellow some.
May 28th, 20091:32 am
Yes, which is dumb and smart all at the same time. I wouldn’t watch it if there wasn’t a Brave there, but if it’s going to count for home-field advantage, well…some teams just don’t have an all-star.
I graduated from that same school……….My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next. …
E pluribus unum to you too, buddy! LOL!
May 28th, 20091:33 am
B.C. Could it be the Cardinals look like they are on the juice because Tony LaRussa is the manager just like he was in Oakland during their juice days. Ol’ Tony sees nothing, knows nothing.
Everyone on the Mets is injured. How can they keep winning?
May 28th, 20091:34 am
Ever get out to see the Rome Braves?
I’m sure they sell moon pies at State Mutual Stadium…
MFin04- yes they have to have a representative from each team. Once in a while a player is hurt at the last minute and then the manager can replace that player with anybody from any team. All teams need only be represented in initial selection process.
May 28th, 20091:35 am
Really? Which dorm did you stay in? I bet you lived on the mountain, right?
the secret of moonpies...
instead of chocolate they use bat poop
You can call me Gladiator since now we are buddies.
Booger Cox is not their manager.
May 28th, 20091:36 am
Anyone noticed that the Braves seem to give away a lot of weird runs when KK is pitching? Like Ross just falling over and letting a guy who was a dead duck score. The guy just seems to get really unlucky. Then Schafer just drops a ball that he probably should have gotten to.
works for me, bubba…
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
