How close are you to Chip Caray, DOB? I’ll give you $1000 if you’ll go knock the hell out of him.
Steve from OH
Jeff Bennett is the Mark Teixeira of pitchers. He racks up decent stats when it doesn’t matter, but when you need him to actually come through in a big spot, forget about it. Not gonna happen.
I will disagree with you on this until the day I die. Tex has been very good in pretty much every situation you could ask for. His OPS is above .900 in every situation–RISP/2 outs, late&close, w/in 1,2,3,4, runs, whatever. He’s just good. This knock on him has no substance.
some body please hit a come backer to jeff bennett to take him out instead of
Campillo is still on the DL
FCKNGGGGGGGGGGGGG Bennett is INCREDIBLE!!! he HAS Boooby’s daughter naked pic or something….
I cant believe he is still pitching in the majorS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! no team would have him…
DOOBBB u go silent! but there has to be rage against bobbys decision tonight!
And that post has nothing to do with Bennett…he just…no comment.
When are we going to get rid of Chris Reitsma?
nana-nana, nana-nana, hey, hey, hey goodbyeeeeee.

Sometimes a save comes in the middle of a game. Should have brought in someone besides Bennett in that situation. It was the 6th inning after all.
rob from sc
In all fairness Soriano was warming up before McCann’s HR made it a for run game. Relievers say if they warm up they should pitch.
get the hook for this jack off
Bennett and Bobby need to go.
A walk! A homer! A double! Can Bennett go for the cycle tonight? Stay tuned!
June 24th, 20099:09 pm
Joe…everyone in the BP is good but Bennett
Bennet take that ball out of your mouth
awful. Manny Acosta would do better than this. I would think
I normally Don’t Hate On Chip Carey But Is He calling the Game on the YES Network…?
He Sounds Like such a Yankee Homer It’s beginning to P’s Me off Maybe he needs a new contract for the YES Network or BSPN…
Stop Kissing Joba’s Ass! You Are sounding just as bad as those turds on BSPN….!
IS Manny Acosta injured? Did Bobby ban him?
seriously, but i dont mean to sound hateful, but DOB if you take that earlier offer i will double it. Chip, just shut up.

How can the Yank’s pitchers bunt better than the Braves’ players?
THIS JUST IN……….Bennett sux
Bobby Cox Hat Tipping Club
After the game, Bobby will probably say something like, ” I thought Jeff pitched well. He just threw a couple of bad pitches, that’s all. Other than that, I thought he was sharp!”
Hopefully the Rays hang on so we will stay only 4 games out.
Let me get this straight. The Yankee catcher who talks all the time is good and brings life to his team and Escobar’s fire and talking seems to annoy the crap out of Bobby. Ok got it.
Haaa! RHR, I’ll throw in a few stacks too.
Rays still leading, 2-1 now in the 7th.
Bennett needs to go away forever
Bobby Cox only believes that saves come in the 9th. Plain and simple the game has passed him by. My wife told me last year that we will not make the playoff’s again until we get a new manager. She might be right
Can we get Blain Boyer back?
June 24th, 20099:10 pm
What is the infatuation with Bennett?
What is Chip carey doing wriong
I really am begging to wonder why Acosta’s 1.54 era is riding the pine…does Bobby not like Panamanians too?
Brooklyn Braves Brawler

When Frenchy hit that homer, the Yanks were finished. They just needed to be put out of their misery. Then we let them back in the game
maybe if GA was on roids??
about an inning too late Jeff Bennett
Derek Jeter officially sucks. What an idiot.
@$#$!# You Bennett!!!!
Weak part of the lineup coming up, not good.
Chamberlain looks really good out there
Totally on Bobby tonight. No way Bennett should have been in there.
he just keeps talking and talking and he is saying nothing
Damn I haven’t Seen Jeter Look like that in years…I wish Bennett Could’ve done that to A-Fraud/A-Roid/Gay-Rod whatever his name is!!!
June 24th, 20099:12 pm
Boy, after seeing all this mabye Jeff Bennett needs to start throwing lefty
Is there any way DOB that you can ask Cox: Why the hell he always puts bennett in these situations when he always screws it up?
I am not the manager, obviously, but I would have brought in Moylan there and brought in Acosta to pitch the 7th.
Bennet for arods steroids
I think a real left fielder would have caught that Swisher HR!!!!
Either way, 1 run against this guy aint gonna cut it.
I rather see McCay McBride then Jeff Bennett in a braves uni.Thats how much Bennett sucks
June 24th, 20099:13 pm
I wonder the same thing why does bennett continue to get chances and continues to fail but acosta just is used for mop up spots give someone else a chance Bobby your decisions cost us dearly dumb@$$.
Medlin Is Chuck James
Medlin is Chuck James from the right side.
Why do the Braves like these Midget pitchers who have a big heart but no size?
Big heart is usually good for a couple of innings. After that, it takes talent, stuff and confidence. And being Hanson’s size doesn’t hurt.
No, I believe the only bias Bobby has on record is against those hailing from Moldavia. Fortunately for him, no one here has heard of or cares about Moldavia, so he’s gotten away with that relatively scot-free.
Why is Acosta not being used a little more? Bennett has been hit hard all year and Acosta has been pretty solid since being called back to Atlanta. You just can’t keep throwing Bennett out there with the game on the line.
June 24th, 20099:14 pm
I know.. that’s what I hate about frickin bias. And it’s not just the Yankees either. There are other players that act like Escobar…but they are not bashed like him…by his own Manager ( Bobby didn’t really bash per se but it wasn’t good) or TV announcers.
Bobby Cox wants the first draft pick, that is why Bennett keeps pitching
never going to win
Atlanta is the launching pad for slumping teams. Bunch of sorry sacs. They lose 7 of the next games I guarantee. Selling by the end of June. Oh this team is so close to breaking through, playting really well. Nope, same sh :t different day.
I would love DOB to ask Bobby that question exactly like that too. “Bobby, why the hell do you continuously bring in Bennett in those situations when he fails more often than not?”
Would LOVE to hear the question….see the look on Cox’s face, and then here his responce.
For the love Gene Garber and Juan Berenguer. The last truly great Braves relievers!
Kotchman come on
JJ (WTH is Jeff Bennett still on the roster???)
I can’t figure out if I’m more pissed at Jeff Bennett or the washed up HOFer. On the one hand, Jeff Bennett is a scrub pitcher that couldn’t get a one-armed blind man out. But it ain’t his fault the HOFer keeps telling him to go out there.
I mean, I guess he’s doing all he can. He just sux and is limited by his incredible inability to pitch. The ole HOFer, however, keeps trotting him out there like he’s freaking mariano rivera. That pisses me off.
don't mention that cox sucks, because everyone loves him
Who wrote that puff piece on Cox today? Hack. The Rockies also had a manager everyone loved, and they’re much better since he was fired.
If the Yankees have heated up here, I’m not feeling good about Lowe tomorrow. He hasn’t looked good at all lately and Pettite has always pitched well against Atl, age be damned.
Hey, Bennett is the barber on the team, right? There you go Jeff.
June 24th, 20099:15 pm
Let’s go offense.
Finally, Kotchman does something.
Kotchy gets a single cmon frenchy……………..
I like Chip i dont see how you cant he brings the passion with him every game.
here is your chance francine
We Are Gonna Slap Pettite Tomorrow, “Bank On It!”
Pettite Is a known pitcher to us…
I think Rick Sutcliffe loves cervelli more than Joe Simpson loves frenchy
I agree. Some people say…sometimes you earn a save in the 6th. You can’t think about what may happen in the game….put the best in that spot…w/o using your closer.
Crowd of 42,315
June 24th, 20099:16 pm
Bobby Cox would keep Bennett and DFA DOB
Heath – Cox would probably wipe a booger on DOB and kick him out of his office.
Heath (Cleveland) –
I wouldn’t hold my breath or wait around tonight for DOB to ask that particular question…..
Could almost guarantee JF would be swinging for the fences after his last AB.
Could Bobby be racist??
He doesnt like escobar
Doesnt put in Acosta
Doesnt play Prado
This just goes to show what the Braves have to look forward to when we dont shut the other team down. Our offense really lacks consistent power (particularly consistent right handed power).
Double play anyone? Francoeur tried to hit another homer on those first two swings.
You are correct because we could score 5 runs and not need a closer, then again any lead any Bobby uses the big three
June 24th, 20099:17 pm
Theres the Frenchy we all know and hate.
Man this team needs a bat
It’s okay, as long as he only makes one out.
As long as Kelly uses that song he’s only going to get worse.
Well, at least he didnt hit into a double play. Hopefully Kelly wont hit into a double play so Bobby can pinch hit for Bennett and get his a$$ out of the game.
Way to go Kelly!
K J perfect bunt
Worse thing that could have happened to Jeff was to hit a homerun…now he’s swinging for the fenses!
nice play there…caught em off gaurd
didnt see that coming
There we go. Finally a bunt.
June 24th, 20099:18 pm
Bobby is no racist.
Attention Frank Wren
You let Smoltz leave, you released Tom Glavine, For the love of God please don’t re-sign Bobby Cox
we caught a break can we take advantage though
Oh, I can’t forget about Johnny Rox (Rocker). Other than being a racist and a prick, he was hell of pitcher. Guys would sing just to protect themselves from getting hit with the ball!
BTW: Kelly Sux! 9 for 67! Make that 10 for 68!
good idea KJ! Speed is a wonderful thing
Little late on agreeing on this, but, clearly, after pitching in his sixth major league game, we can definitively conclude Kris Medlen has a mental problem (or is it Kris we can conclude that about)?
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
