Thatta boy Mac. No DPs!!
Jimmy Joe – are you a scout?
June 23rd, 20097:42 pm
Lets nail Wang tonight ~_~
Swinging early in the count isn’t always bad, I guess.
June 23rd, 20097:43 pm
You inbreeds do know it’s pronounced WONG, right?
GA gave it a ride. Cmon CK
I smell a HR
RHR..very funny about medlen
June 23rd, 20097:44 pm
why you gotta go and ruin all their fun?
Frenchy is hot
I predicted production from JF tonight. cmon Jeff, prove me right for once.
Krotchy with a blistering hit. Heh.
Just saw Hanson “blow right by” McDowell in the dugout on WWOR. – Jeff321
Like I said, he’d better get his mind right or it’ll be a long third. Save that emo crap for Gwinnett, these are the BIGS!
June 23rd, 20097:45 pm
I believe everyone knows how it’s pronounced
Just that it’s fun to make the childish jokes ~_~
..hot for a double play
cabraves! I was just about to summon you, didn’t think you were here lol.
wang is afraid to pitch to frenchy
Jeff laid off 3 pitches!!!
June 23rd, 20097:46 pm
Oh ok, Chris. Carry on then.
Bailed on work at 3:30- got home early, only had ot fastforward the 1st inning
I am positive that the Braves are going to win!
GOD JEFFREY, you coulda walked so easily.
better than nothing
well, at least a productive out
June 23rd, 20097:47 pm
JF blows. I thought the Royals were gonna take him off our hands.
Joe simpson’s new man crush…KJ
What did Bobby just call him?
Johnson V Wang ~_~
June 23rd, 20097:48 pm
KJ’s goin’ DEEP ….watch!
why haven’t the Braves scored yet?
rob from sc
WTH did he wait so long to run
Why didn’t KJ run?
NO MORE BOBBY
Why did Johnson wait so long to get out of the box? That guy is so NOT money!!!
KJ didn’t run out of the box, if he does, he beats that.
And, why didn’t Kelly run on impact there? It looked like he stood for a sec then took off.
WHY Didn’t KJ Run Out of the Box…Man…Another Mental Lapse!
June 23rd, 20097:49 pm
WHY THE HELL DID KJ STAND THERE AND LOOK AT THE F*CKING BALL BOUNCE????
Kelly could have beat that out but he stood there and stared at it like an idiot!!!!!!!!!!
Why wasnt he running right after he hit it? He just stood there for 2 seconds.
He cost us a run, get Prado in!
….maybe next AB.
KJ!!!!!! Run out of the box dammit! frick. bench him bobby, please.
If KJ hadn’t looked before running he would have been safe.
OMG, DID YOU GUYS SEE KJ LOOK AT THE BALL FOR A WHILE BEFORE RUNNING TO FIRST?
He stinks in all aspects of baseball-RETIRE KJ
Ron in mobile
So why was Kelly not busting it outta the box?
We’re Not Gonna Take It…
That stupid SOB Kelly Johnson!
He should be immediately benched for standing at home plate and watching that ball before deciding he may want to run…
Cost us at least one run already…
WAKE THE H*LL UP COX! YOU’RE PLAYING THE WRONG GUY!!!
I do believe replays will show Kelly didn’t run out of the box. Cost him there.
June 23rd, 20097:50 pm
Gotta love how KJ stood at the plate to admire his Baltimore Chop. Of course it would have been nice to see him actually run to first right away.
Cost us 1 run.
But Bobby will never say anything to Johnson. Im tired of hearing Joe Simpson say “that might get Kelly going” every game now. Let me guess. That close play at first is going to get him going?
Bobby Cox Hat Tipping Club
Funny statement of the night so far.
Frenchy with a 3-0 count and Chip says, “we’ll see if Frenchy has a green light on this pitch.”
If Frenchy….yes THAT Frenchy…the Frenchy who is not known for being a good judge of pitches was given a green light, it would be grounds to fire Cox immediately!
Frenchy didn’t have the green light btw.
Did Kelly lose that ball? He paused at the plate after hitting it. He was thrown out by an eyelash. He doesn’t pause on that swing, Braves lead 1-0
Robinson Cano would look GREAT in a Braves uniform.
I guess ya’ll did notice. So, does he get benched now?
I wish we would trade JF and KJ to the Royals for a bag of Donuts.
Kelly, are you ****ing kidding me!?
What is wrong with you!
Great at-bat by Jeff too. Jeff, you still don’t have to swing with a 3-1 count. 3-1 doesn’t mean “swing.” It means use your eyes.
is he really amazed that he bounced one off the plate?? you run and ask questions later!
KJ is completely worthless, and that is not saying enough. He needs to get a lesson like Yunel. My F#$%in GOD
if yunel did that he’d be playing in rome by tomorrow.
Kelly: I actually hit that?? I think you’re supposed to run after you hit the ball
Braves Fan 88
KJ has to get out of the box. He cost the Braves a run.
June 23rd, 20097:51 pm
Come on Tommy.
Get through this so we can possibly score some runs.
KJ didn’t run because he has the courage of a 12 year old girl and is a nervous wreck any time he feels an ounce of pressure. I’m serious, he’s the biggest wuss on the team. Watch him sulk in a corner when something doesn’t go exactly right.
KJ, you moron!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If we lose a close one tonight……
What the F is wrong with him? RUN ON CONTACT.
Remember, it’s the little things.
Nova Scotia Steve
He barely played here for 2 yrs…didn’t help us win shat…get over it…lol
If Kelly had not hesitated out of the box, he would have been safe, and Mac would have scored. Play Prado. He charges with energy. If Esco had done that, Bobby would have benched him
Great nap by KJ after that swing……..if he runs, he is safe…………easily.
I have to wonder what Bobby’s take on that is. That has to fall under the “lackadaisical” category in my opinion.
June 23rd, 20097:52 pm
Show of hands: Who else thinks if that was Escobar he’d be pulled?
Did you notice Joe mancrush Simpson had nothing bad to say about our .220 hitter that does nothing right? Wow
If Kelly Johnson had been runnning as soon as he hit the ball he would have been safe. Maybe Bobby should bench him.
My god Anderson is slow
Wonder if Bobby will throw Kelly Johnson under the bus like he did Escobar? I’m guessing,no.
Andruw Jones would have been taken out of the game right away !!!!! Why haven’t Joe Or Chip said anything ?!!!!
Patrick in LA
If Yunel did what kelly just did … he’d have been benched for a week.
Between KJ and Frenchy, this team won’t break even. Bet money on that one!
Canadaian braves fan
folks dont forget to vote at http://www.newblogofbraves.blogspot.com and give your thoughts on Kelly Johnson
GA sucks, cost us a run there for sure. Anybody else cuts that off.
June 23rd, 20097:53 pm
Pschhh. Tex barely played here a full year let alone 2. We got him at the trade deadline in 07 and he was traded at the next trade deadline in 08.
the hope of the braves nation rests in your hands mr hanson
dont hustle or anything garrett…. just concede the double every time. they never try for three do they?
20 blogs in 2 minutes wanting to know why KJ didn’t run. Reason maybe Bobby don’t demand it?
WOW..start the Garret bashing.
Mike in LA
I’m not even going to comment on Kelly, everyone else took care of it.
WTF with anderson…………. a 95 year old grandma runs faster than him………………..what the helllllllllllllllll…………………..bench that guy………….release himmmmmmm
He cant field anymore……………….helllllllllllllloooooooooooo
He coulda had third ….easily.
That was like watching my dad run after the ball.
I think that may have been kelly’s adam laroche impersonation
cabravesfan – not to worry – left to get food with some appropriate liquid to get me the round trip mile and a half I needed – while waiting for the food had a pint of “Dazed and Infused,” an IPA from Boulder. I inadvertently let the significance of the day slide to the bartender, who quickly offered a free refill. While there I spoke with a haggardly female from South Carolina moving to the area who was applying for a job there, who asked me to come back in a few weeks to see if she was working there. At this point, wine, an ‘Insult to Philly’ sandwich, wine, and the blog – okay, also Jeter hitting a double – other than the last thing, a good evening for my neighbor’s birthday.
Can’t believe Jeter stopped at 2B…I thought he MIGHT get an inside- the-parker… by the time Loaf ambled over there and picked it up.
June 23rd, 20097:54 pm
Hey, did anybody else notice that KJ didn’t run out of the box on that play? LOL.
Jeter just moved past some guy named Ruth into sole possession of fourth place on Yankee doubles list with 425.
Did PTV even mention anything about KJ not running immediately? Joe Simpson’s pretty quick in pointing out Esco’s mistakes.
I like how Simpson is quick to point out GA’s loafishness, but no mention of KJ’s mental lapse. What is it with these guys?
Good job, Tommy!
I mean they didn’t even say anything about it on TV…and we know damn good and well if it was Escobar we’d still be hearing about it on tv….
June 23rd, 20097:55 pm
I was thinking that Electron was here….it seems so negative.
We need a new manager !! Cox let his players do what ever the F !!! they want too ! Someone black would have been yank !!!!!!!!!!
1. JF swinging 3-1 (you are struggling you take your walk)
2. KJ lack of hustle
3. Anderson lack of hustle
We will make the list tonight………..no more speculations.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
