Eric from MO
June 3rd, 20099:50 pm
WOW! That was a bad call.
Where’s the non-suck from Blanco?
McLouth rymes with south.
Wow thats a horrible call.
1. Is Brian Barton fast?
2. I’m already into the Colossus of McLouth. Totally drawing up a homemade jersey tonight.

I can’t add a thing. Well done.
Oh, Grove cann get those calls! Uh-huh…I understand…
He was freaking safe by a freaking mile!
Barton looks like a black ronald mcdonld
I just Threw My Empty Beer Can At the Tv Watching that BS Call on the Replay!!!
Can MLB get Instant Replay Please? J/K!
That ump will get severely graded in private by the umpiring overseers, but I say we should have INSTANT REPLAY for calls like that.
June 3rd, 20099:52 pm
What is up with these ump we have gotten screwed at least 10 times this year on bad calls. Bobby needs to get his fat A$$ off the bench and argue.
Oh great, the bats better be prepared
Dammit, Bennett in the Game, Not Good!
Jeff Bennett in the ball game…
WOW. Why put Bennett in there and the first batter he faces is a guy whose hand he broke last year.
Is something wrong with Eric?
Black Ronald McDonald, lol. Game over, Bennett is in! Not sure what Bobby is thinking.
June 3rd, 20099:53 pm
Bennett against Soriano…I’m Nervous!
Well said, I Couldn’t agree more. I appreciate your insights.
Come on N8, don’t make so much sense. We all know that the Braves players are gonna be too sad that Charlie Morton was traded to perform well. Because, you know, he pitched for this team last year and they got to know him.
Just like when Kwame Brown was traded for Pau Gasol. The Lakers were so shook up over losing their friend, Kwame, that they never recovered.

I’d-Hate-Ta-Win-It Bennett here to save the day.
just checked in, great trade…good riddance to the big whiner glavine who used to remind all of us idiot fans that “this is a business”…yes it is tommyboy, hasta luego…don’t let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya!
Saw that error on Esco coming from a mile away.
Great post earlier N8
Ugh, Bennett. Double ugh, Escobar!
“He’s getting sent down tomorrow, so mine as well get his uniform dirty.” MFin04
You could be right. But it wouldn’t surprise me, with the way today has gone, if Norton was shown the door instead. Prado can back up Kotchman, and it’s not like Norton has been hitting.
I’d still like to see the Braves see what Cleveland needs for DeRosa. He could still be used. But I’m afraid that the guys that we would have used to get him, just got traded away. Unless they’re willing to take Jeff.
Me Too, I think we have gotten F’d over by the Umps Wayyy Too Many Times this Year!
Why Jeff Bennett?
I can’t remember the last time I saw pinch running and stolen base attempts in a Braves game.
Jeff Bennett is a guy I’d like to have seen DFA’d a month ago….
Game over. Bennett is the death of all games. He has horrible Carma and is just plain out sucks. I bet his wife if he has one never goes to the games do to the shame.
Bravos all these hitters are righty. Probably why Eric wasnt brought in.
Chip Caray is a BUFFOON
“37 – 8 – 9 ounces”
oh no we suk again… Jeff Bennett!
Still can’t believe they took Blanco’s infield hit away!!!
June 3rd, 20099:55 pm
Not sure if Escobar would’ve gotten Soriano at first.. Nevertheless, it looked sloppy.
I have a bad feeling this is gonna be an ugly inning.
Dang it….the satellite just went out. What’s happening?
Maybe Wren will see the light with Jeff Bennett. He is sorry, even if he gets us through the inning. I would rather have Boone Logan.
June 3rd, 20099:56 pm
good looking DP
Jeff is fing lucky!
Nicely turned double play…
Woop woop DP! Awesome. One mo’!
Alright Chipper! Old man can still pick it, bad toe and all!
Kelly wif da mad skillzzzzzz
Jeff Bennett's chewing tobacco
That was double pits to chesty.
June 3rd, 20099:57 pm
Wow KJ turning double plays like it’s nothing!!!! Nice play by Chipper there, maybe he is back to his gold glove form!!
Huh, so Bennett sucks. Good call bloggers.
not sure why the braves burned anderson that last inning when they could have used a pitcher to bunt the possible game winning run into scoring position…
NICE DP…We Will Win And Shut These Bandwagon Cubs Fans The Hell Up
BTW What Happened to the Cubs trolls that were off da chain on here last nite…?
I have been ripping KJ’s defense for quite a while now. But, he’s looked GOOD on all the DP’s tonight.
Jeff usually can’t get the third out though…
June 3rd, 20099:58 pm
Yeahhhhh! Let’s win this Bravos!
Jeff Bennett, you make me chuckle, props to you.
Good Inning from Jeff Bennett…Joe Simpson going crazy about fireworks…
Dang. Spank my *ss and call me Sally. Bennett looked great there.
Nice work, Bennett.
Time For some Old Triple Sixx “Who Run It!!!” That Song Rules!!!
Gotta get some Loud Music To Jumpstart this Offense!!!
chew that tabaccer boy!

June 3rd, 20099:59 pm
wow jeff sound good from lemke was saying….didnt know he had a 95mph fastball
Walk-off! Walk-off! Walk-off! Let’s go.
Who Run It!!! Who Run It!!!
Where have you been all season Eric in MO? In a coma?
Nice inning by Bennett. If this thing goes much longer, I bet he’s out there for another, since he’s done the spot start/long relief thing.
Ahh Hell, For Jeff Bennett it is better to be lucky than good. He could fall into a pile of Shat and come out smelling like a field of roses.
June 3rd, 200910:00 pm
This is truly a battle. Both teams being what they are… Hopefully with McLouth in there tomorrow night the Braves will just dominate. Home runs left and right! Ha!
The moves of the last two days should have sent a message to everybody in that dugout. Better be ready to play, and play the right way!
Didn’t see your question last night until this a.m. Yes, I like vintage guitars however I’m not going to go all ga-ga over ‘em. Nice DP BTW. I’m a firm believer in the “tone is in your fingers” theory. I’m surrounded by cats down here in Middle Ga. that can make a Teisco and a Gorilla amp sound amazing!
Can’t afford the vintage class either.
I definately think Esco was thinking about Soriano’s speed so he charged the ball hard and he just looked a little off from the get. I don’t think he would have gotten him anyway and worse case scenerio he throws it away and Soriano is allowed to advance so, you never know. We got a DP out of it.
“wow jeff sound good from lemke was saying” TBFetc
That “Hooked On Phonics” tape? Two words: Re. Fund.
Did Joe finish that thought about McCann’s game-calling skills? Our TV got messed up so I missed it if he did…
Come On HOSS, Do It Again Baby!!!

how come bobby didn’t bunt? i swear that man ain’t got a lick of sense. if he wants to know how to manage he can call me at br549.
End it Chip!
Just got in from a long dinner..
Your 9:47 is your best post ever. Totally agree with across the board.
Giving up Locke, Morton and Gorky’s is tough, but we got a young guy who can help now that is cheap. for 4 years cheap.
Frenchy needs to think about this. Schafer, Mclouth, Frenchy and Heyward. 1 too many outfielders. FW has shown, only the strong survive.
Only thing I don’t like about this is it makes WAY WAY too left handed with our good young positions players (BMac, KJ, Schafer, Kotch, Heyward, Freeman, Mclouth)
GREAT DAY FRANK WREN!
June 3rd, 200910:02 pm
They Will Pitch Around Chipper, Bank On It…
They are not gonna let Hoss Beat Them
cyndi….ah never mind
ooh, good pitch there. Chipper knew it
Chipper swung at ball four.
Dam!!! That was Some good Velocity and Chipper tried to play it off well
that pitch was wicked…
Gimper follows up his nice play with a big whiff!
TBF, lol, you’re a good man.
June 3rd, 200910:03 pm
KJ Come On We Need a Gapper Baby!!!
June 3rd, 200910:04 pm
Fck…We’ve had some Serious Bad luck in this game aside from Chipper’s double
End is Esco!
June 3rd, 200910:05 pm
Uh oh. Momentum waning…
Train Wreck Bystander
JJ said: “PTV in HD…..I don’t get all the complaints. Every game on PTV is on HD at my house. Am I the only one or something? I have DishNetwork in the Metro Atl area. Just have seen lots of complaints lately…”
You are in Atlanta proper. They are one of your local channels. But those of us outside Atlanta, yet inside the Braves television territory, cannot watch the PTV games on dish Network.
Those of us on dish Net can see all the Fox SS games on Sunday and all the SportSouth games. It’s not a matter of us not being in the territory; it’s a matter of dish & PTV not coming to terms for carriage.
Which is why you see so much PTV bashing here and elsewhere.
This is truly a battle. Both teams being what they are
Two teams with a combined record of one game over .500 clash in a battle wits, pitching, defense, managing and hitting. Which of these two power-houses will prevail?
June 3rd, 200910:06 pm
Jeff Bennett for another inning is testing Allah, God, Buddah, Karma, the Baseball gods, etc.
Epic Struggle, this is what happens when a stoppable force meets a moveable object.
June 3rd, 200910:07 pm
Haven’t been able to keep up with all the posts tonight, as you might imagine. But please tell me there aren’t a lot of people suggesting the Braves gave up too much for Nate McLouth, right?
A 27-year-old All-Star under a very reasonable contract through 2012, a Gold Glove winner who had only one fewer homer than the entire Braves outfield last season, and has one fewer than their entire outfield so far this season, and the highest stolen-base success rate in the majors the past several years? Oh, and a Gold Glove?
Surely most here believe that was a good trade. They traded a very good CF prospect (Gorkys) who MIGHT become what McLouth is now. Might. And a good starting pitching prospect (Charlie) who didn’t exactly set the world on fire last year in the majors, and who was probably going to need an injury or two to see the Braves’ rotation in the next year or three.
And Locke, who is young (21) and talented, but really hasn’t done much.

DOB, most bloggers approve by far.
Train Wreck –
Gotcha. Thanks for the info. That sucks for y’all. I just assumed that if you got PTV you’d also get PTV in HD. Didn’t know they’d have one without the other.
Bennett, Come On, Don’t F This Game Up!!!
2 innings in a row…I dunno. We shall see.
June 3rd, 200910:09 pm
Thank you sir.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
