I can’t see the BoSox being interested in Diory Hernandez. He has played solid defense but not much there offensively so I think it must be Yunel. I’m not a huge Yunel fan but he is solid. We would have to get a lot in return to give him up.

Heath, and 2 SB.
a catcher running got the best of Chipper?
Peter Come On!!!!
Fasten your seat belts, here we go.
Loaf Garret I don't need a shower,my uniform is clean too
I would have thrown him out at second
Never seen a team that is so frustrating even in winning
NO FUNDAMNMENTALS on this slack A** team
Sick of Escobar base running & idiot Diaz period
this team needs someone to chew their butts out but instead we’ve got the booger picker
Chipper’s “plant-shy.” That toe still isn’t ready to take the load.
the south’s finally got some clout(h)! cmon pete, pick it up>>>>
Maybe the Kotchmeister makes that play at 1st, but we will never know!

Yeah, I do. I happen to see a infomrcial this afternoon selling a vacumm(sp) system that is supposed to cure ED among other things.
Interesting to say the least.
The rumor was that Francoeur was on the table for Mclout, But the Pirates wanted Gorkey instead. The pirates were willing to take a chance on a unproving player instead of five major league seasons with Francoeur !!! That’s says a lot !!!!
Can we get another pitcher please….have we lost Medlen…someone send out an Amber Alert!
Frenchy is a complete joke.
wow , we need to get Soriano up and in the game
Good lord, this team just constantly gives the other team help. Boneheaded baserunning….then another Chipper error. Come on guys, for crying out loud. It’s no wonder they average less than 50% capactiy at the Ted.
Something has to be done about the Braves base running. If the bottom of the order was coming up, I could see gambling on the base paths. But I cant count the number of times that Escobar has been nabbed, with Chipper coming up. Not only that, but Brian Snitker, the 3rd base coach, has sent the runner who subsequently got thrown out at the plate, with Chipper coming up. It would be nice if Bobby Cox would emphasize “situational” base running to the players.
I dont mind Matt Diaz sliding off the bag on the double. That is going to happen. He was playing hard and he slid off the bag. However, what Escobar did was just plain dumb. I like Escobar’s play. However he needs to correct his base running because he makes too many mistakes on the base paths.
It was nice to see another starter make it through 6 innings.

Efrim, regarding Huntington’s letter–here’s a good take on it:
Steve-OH, Efrim, absolutely, re working both ways. I think the Braves may have overpaid a hair, but, the buyer pays premium when the supply is short, no? That’s fair. I was mainly responding to the thought that the Pirates got buried.
I gave in to my optimistic nature, therefore I’m actually checking out the in-game tonight (actually, I’m doing some work, but the other sounds good). Not too bad, since the Braves took an early lead. By “not too bad”, of course, I mean short of thrown-from-my-horse-and-trampled-a-couple-three-times bad. Like that.
Can someone explain what Esco did the last inning? sorry, catching the game through Gameday only. Was he going to the second and got caught in between first and second?
Chipper loves to lose games for this team with his defense that’s for sure. Possibly the worst defensive third baseman in the NL this year.
June 8th, 20099:10 pm
Diaz doesn’t seem to make base running every night like Escobar does. Escobar has the body of work to show for it.
awful moylan, awful…
GET Moylan Out NOW!!!!
Where you at Tomahawkin?
Chop It Up All-star
One run game…Moylan strikes again.
Do it Now
June 8th, 20099:11 pm
Again, if Brian McCann isn’t all the way in front of home plate and has to dive back over the plate, he may get the runner.
PWHjort..all these stats prove one thing…good job Wren. Like the guys on MLB Network have said, the best part of the trade is how soon the Braves made it happen.
There it goes
KK goes 6 innings, gives up 3. Moylan can’t go 1 … gives up 3
I really hate bullpen pitchers who cant do their jobs
WAT TO GO MOYLAN YOU SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!
wow, awful more,
Okay Bobby,now you can take Moylan out, he’s tied the game.
I’m the guy who said we should have signed Hinske this winter. Now, can we trade Frenchy for him?
Bad jump, Jeff …..
Meanwhile Frenchy just can’t get the job done. (This would probably be a good time for the Frenchy lovers to tout his defense, eh?)
Uh, I think Moylan MIGHT be done…. whaddya say?
Here comes Cox now.
FCCCKKKKK!!!!! I JUST THREW MY BEER AT THE TV!!!
Get out scoots, get out while you still can!
Wow. That really really hurts. Everything is 20/20 in hindsight, but should have yanked Moylan.
Game is far from over folks.
We hate leads!
June 8th, 20099:12 pm
Francoeur just a little short.
This is how....
we blow a lead blow a lead
this is how we blow a lead
putting Peter Moylan in
La DeLa De Da
La De Da
La De La De Da
Lead’s about to be blown now
Brian McCann sure as hell doesn’t block the plate anymore. Way to go Chipper, all those runs are yours you piece of crap. You suck in the field, you are at best a DH in this league!!!!
Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory-Jeff really needed that one for pr purposes
Not sure if you could see it but the ball actually bounced right before it got to Mac- I think that was a bigger issue then where Mac was set up…
This McCutchen kid is pretty good huh?
Pirates about to take the lead. I would have rather seen KK come back out for the 7th. Probably wouldn’t matter though. This team SUCKS people.
Wow this is effing ridiculous. H eshould have been out two batters ago.
Gotta love Bobby. Why is Moylan on this team again? Oh yeah. To rehab.
Medlen must have something wrong with him, right?
Well, that didn’t take long.
Gotta say I did like the effort by Frenchy..but why must Bobby wait until a pitcher gives up the lead to take them out…..I mean 3 back to back hits isn’t a BIG enough sign?
I wonder if we see Medlen? I doubt it, but kid is rotting out there.
Tell it like it ain't
This Moylan guy is pretty good, eh?
June 8th, 20099:13 pm
Do I hear the assembled masses at the Ted Booing. More power to them. We give away runs on offense and defense. WTFX3
It just keeps getting better, doesn’t it? Whenever we bring in one of our bullsh!t relievers, a starter suffers for it. Thanks Moylan, you Australian piece of scum!
Spoke too soon, guys, LOL. Adios.
Moylan needs to go follow Boyer out the F’N door he blows, wow terrible. we dont derserve to win sh1t.
Damn Jeff is so slow and late start. Relief pitching blows another one. KK gets no help.
I luv this worthless bullpen!!!!! 6 runs ought to beat anyone!
June 8th, 20099:14 pm
Man! This Fcking Team Played with My Emotions again…And I will be the first One to admit that I got Overly Optomistic after yesterday….
We Got to win this Fcking Game, Nuff Said!!!!
So much for KK getting the win.
There is not a person on this blog that is surprised that Bobby took Moylan out too late; he’s been doing it for years.
Moylan is fine, its his defense behind him that isn’t so swell.
The game is still winnable. Just need better relief pitching/defense/offensive fundamentals ~_~
Well after tonight Your Atlanta Braves might be tied with the Marlins for 4th place.
well make that lose another half game to the idle mets and phils.
Keeping It Real
just watched McLouth on TV hit a homer, hit to the opposite field and steal a base. I take back everything negative I have said about him. The guy can play. The Braves got a steal.
Jettison the Jeff's
Why are Francoeur and Bennett still here?
Diaz blunder just cost us the lead….We would have an extra run had he not over slid 2nd
Get Peter Moylan outta here. He was better when he wore his glasses. Dumbass
Let get physicsal
eek = WTF**2
Oh btw Tomahawkin, thanks for jinxing the cold living sh!t out of this game by saying it’s in the bag.
too much hype about nate and we might lose the game. would be nice to pick up this one and have lowe tomorrow
Frank from KS, I haven’t seen that one….yet.
They should take the damn things off tv and keep them in men’s magazines.
Whew! Prado kept McCutchen on third.
June 8th, 20099:15 pm
Good play by Prado w/ that bat about to take his eye out
1 pitch…1 out…
Damn Good Play by Martin!
Got To Get Out of this Inning!
Poor KK…and THIS is exactly why Moylan should’ve spent 2 or 3 months working in the minors..getting his arm…but noooo….he was back….the guy just doesn’t have the movement he had before the surgery.
Good play, Marteen.
Wanted to sign Hinske before we signed GA. Would have platooned him with Matty D.
Watching this idiotic team is so infuriating
Sure could have used some runs that Diaz & Escobar denied us on the basepaths.
DOes Frenchy know how to actually dive for a ball rather than just fall down & stretch out his glove – anyone that says he is even decent in the outfield does not have a clue.
We cut the throw from the outfield going home and the relay from the pitcher’s mound is one-hopped and off center to home plate.
THIS TEAM HAS A WILL TO LOSE AND LOSE THEY WILL
That might wind up being an important play by Martin. He has been a surprise (to me, anyway) at first.
Yep, the Braves are back in form. Sink baby, sink. Hope you can keep stride with the Nationals.
Folks, the Braves bull pen is a bigger problem than the offense. The Braves need someone who can pitch the 7th-8th innings. Without that guy, you can go get whatever bat you’d like, it will not matter because Bennett-Moylan-O’Flaherty is not what can get you to the playoffs.
…i would walk Freddy to pitch to LaRoche
Wayne in Utah
These type of games are the ones where we need a “stopper”, similar in respect to a closer, but one who can be used without hurting an ego in an earlier inning.
Two years ago, Moylan was that man. It is clear that he needs to go down and work on his game. I would have brought in Soriano.
moylan makes jeff bennett look like roy halladay
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
