Here we go
JJ (WTH is Jeff Bennett still on the roster???)
For the love of all thing pure and holy………..DO NOT LET BENNETT PITCH!!!!!!

“A-Rod has hit eight of his nine homers at Yankee Stadium. Jeter has hit seven of his nine homers there, Damon has hit 10 of his 14 there, and Teixeira’s has hit 13 of his 20 homers there.”
I don’t understand why mlb would let them build a stadium that is clearly designed to boost offensive numbers. Hmmm…A-Fraud is projected to make a run for the HR record and now he gets an artificial boost by playing in a stadium designed to be a launching pad. How is that in any different from players using steroids as far as the integrity of records are concerned?
Brooklyn Braves Brawler
JJ the Peachtree pitchman needs gym membership. That guy is huge!
I love Gonzo.
Bobby Cox Hat Tipping Club
This is a script in the making. A-Rod slumping. Yankees stinking. Ump misses call. Girardi tossed. Backup catcher homers to tie game and fire team up. Slumping A-Rod to the plate with the sacks loaded. Does he break out with a monster slam?
Geez, like the ‘96 World Series lol
Here We Go Fellas…!
Bennett Will Get Through This, “Bank On It!”
rob from sc
Medlen needs to learn some composure from his roomate
Steve from OH
Chop It Up All-star
This is not good.
June 24th, 20098:51 pm
First two from Bennett looked pretty good to me.
strike him out!!!!!!!!
oh wow… so close
Wow wish I was there!
I’m scared…..so very scared………
Bobby Cox has balls
0-2 on A-Roid!
Throw the heat meat.
the hope of the braves nation rests in your hands mr hanson
wish mac could have held on to that one…..tough play though.
If this was “aroid” he would have not missed those
I fear nothing. Bennett will get him. I just hope to hell he doesn’t walk him.
OH COME ON! That was strike three.
I am scared too
June 24th, 20098:52 pm
Enter your comments hereWHF did McCann call for a slider
damn right down the middle
figures…………….coulda been worse
awful. Should have kept throwing the heat. Joe is right
HE can’t hit a damn fastball and he throws a slider!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
right down the middle on an 0-2 count.
Get Rid Of Bennett NOW!!!
That was Way-Too Good a Pitch!!!
Over/under on how many more times the ex Marlins announcer doing the ESPN game is going to whine about the play at first?
good job Bennet
you had 2 strikes on him
It’s early, but should have brought in Moylan on that one.
We had him.
Come on Jeff. That was terrible.
Let’s see if Bennett is ready to take the next step and become one of the guys that Cox can depen on.
The answer is no. The answer was no yesterday. The answer was no last week. The answer will be no tomorrow.
SON OF A FREAKING B!TCH…..WHY THE HELL IS JEFF FREAKING BENNETT ON THIS TEAM????????????
Oh Sh!t. Who would have thunk it?
Bad pitch selection
He can’t hit a fastball and he throws him a slider. Geez!
Does Bennett have another pitch besides a fastball?
no, that was a fastball, just too hittable. Should have been at his eyes
Well, maybe a comeback win can happen
Bennett was dishing up cheese before he grooved one!
Bennett does it again!!!!
Arod..breaks out of his slump now…have to tip your cap to the other team..they wanted it more
June 24th, 20098:53 pm
Wow! Could not have thrown that ball any more down the middle of the plate than if he put it on a tee! lol
Enter your comments here
0 and 2, base hit… who woulda thought that possible, that’s our bennett… yeah boy…
That’s seven of 18 inherited runners who’ve scored against Bennett
how the hell do you groove a pitch on an 0-2 count??? Throw one in the dirt for good measure, at least! Come on!
went from a perfect game to a losing game real quickly
Most pitchers don’t throw 96 mph sliders, guys…
????? your up 0-2 and you throw one right down the middle of the plate?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? Why did you put in Cox and why is he even in the Majors??????????????
With two strikes on A_Rod, why would Bennett keep coming right over the plate?
That was not a fastball
Bennett has a great ERA. Unfortunately, those he relieves do not.
Bobby’s man crush on Jeff Bennett continues!!
A-Rod had been 1-for-8 with bases loaded before that

another great move by Cox for u Cox lovers.
ESPN still attributing all this from Girardi arguing. Ugh.
yeah, this is all because he got tossed… freaking morons in the booth
Game still in reach.
It would be nice if the offense can pick up the pitching for once.
And Cox acted like he was surprised when A_Rod got the hit!
Where the hell is ACOSTA
June 24th, 20098:55 pm
When will Bobby learn!!!! He’s come in these situations before and has done the same thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don’t know what that was…ESPN keeps saying “He finally caught up to the fastball”….it was straight as hell…I don’t see how it was a slider, but he should’ve thrown in the dirt at least twice. Didn’t throw A-Rod anything but fastballs. Terrible.
Do I have to comment?
If KK was still in, we’d still be winning
That was a good idea. Take out Medlen to bring in Bennett. Yet again, Bennett’s ERA goes nowhere, but he allows more runners to score.
Bennett makes everyone else’s ERA look like garbage while his stays respectable enought to apparently keep him on the roster.
I guess everyone still loves Medlen…he is a nut case
Why is Bennett still on this team? And why does Bobby insist on bringing him in when the game is in the balance…dammit!!
BLAME THE BRAVES OFFENSE
Oh…and lest we forget Sutcliffe saying how brilliant it was that Cox had given three different pitchers for ARod to face….like he planned it that way. How do they get away with this crap?
0-2 fastball right down the middle. Unreal.
Just saw another replay. Freaking fastball down the middle on an 0-2 pitch. MORON.
That’s the ballgame there.
That is a classic example of why Bennett’s 3.13 ERA is misleading. Dude has allowed so many “inherited” runners to score. He wont get credited with those 2 runn (Medlen will).
Bennett is the ABSOLUTE WRONG GUY to bring into the game with runners on base. Dude has allowed 66 base runners in 33 innings pitched.
Bravos: yes it was, how else did it go straight and 95mph???
June 24th, 20098:56 pm
Jeff Bennett is nothing but a charity case. He occupies a spot on this roster because Cox considers him one of his BOYS. Ya know, guys with no business on a ML roster but get trotted out in tight situations. Sheesh
I’m out, later.
Okay we throw 23 scoreless innings…..you expect Medlen to give up something because he hasn’t pitched in 10 days….but when you get used as much as Bennett you need to learn how to effin pitch.
They need to make Medlen the MR guy and Bennett the long relief…and ship him out when Buddy comes back…..I rather not see Bennett for 10 days than Medlen!!!!!!!!!!
I pin this one on Joba’s fat ass for taking out our starter, DOB and Chip for jinxing what was a well pitched game up until the 6th, and whoever is in charge of Jeff Bennett having a job that doesn’t require him to say “do you want fries with that?”
And the ole senile HOFer is out of his freaking mind. Why the hell waste guys like Moylan, Soriano, and Gonzo in games that are 7-2 and then pitch freaking loser give-up-a-run-every-pitch Jeff Bennett??????
Watch Bennet is going to go out for the next inning.
I really don’t understand. They have been seeing the same thing from Bennett time after time. I really do not understand.
I thought we were going to get out of that.
It’s only three runs for crying out loud.
It’s all because of KK. This game would probably be over by now. They get lucky but SportsCenter won’t bother mentioning that they finally scored after he left the game.
Medlen’s still a rookie. What are you gunna do?
Let’s go Braves.
Bennett has single handly killed what ever mojo we’ve got going over the past week. Take that joker and set his butt out on the TECH campus tonight. Within any luck the A T L’s finest will handle him!!!
1 run is not going to cut it anyway. We need 4 runs a night. Offense is the reason we are losing not the pitching
And Bobby Cox is due for his Meds, ey Boob, it’s lights out at the Nursing Home, You Muleheaded OLd Fart
He threw a alider that did not slide. No movement no break. Was pretty straight! No heat on that pitch what so ever.
June 24th, 20098:57 pm
Bennett at a fast food place? Ummm, maybe not the best idea…
Let’s get some runs.
If you read Arods lips he tells pena “I cant believe they brought that guy in”
Bravos2249: did you see my post? You didn’t admit you were wrong yet, so I was just wondering
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
