Chip carray working for the playoffs. Albeit it would be an upgrade over mccarver or buck for that matter. Boog shouldn’t miss a broadcast. Wow I’m drunk!!!
My vote for best closer ever goes to JOHN SMOLTZ with MIKE REMLINGER as a BRAVE(the first time), the greatest set-up man.
June 24th, 200910:46 pm
Mac’s tired; needs a rest.
Frenchy actually had two good ABs – good for a #7 hitter.
KJ hopeless at plate; Prado got a clutch hit.
GA costing us too much in LF. Though Diaz hopeless against Riviera, at least he gets to a few more balls in LF. Both hitting about the same, so defense should win out.
Bennett not reliable (duh!); not at all; but Acosta not a solution; not with more regular work. Medlen needs to gain some confidence or we’re going to pin a Joey Devine label on him. Mac or Ross needs to slow him down when things get tough.
Game might have been different if KK not hit; if O’F(undamentals) gets to First on time; if interference call is made, but Braves just looked tired and outclassed tonight. Never want a team to look like that.
June 24th, 200910:47 pm
At least Gonzo and Soriano didn’t pitch tonight.
D-Lowe needs to be our ace tomorrow. He hasn’t looked like the ace lately.

Steve from OH,
Come on pal………..tell me when your birth is so I can send you a dictionary………..It will help you look smarter. Please tell me it is before Christmas, cause it looks like you need it badly.
Panamenian…………….person born in Panama……….. not central america but Panama.
You can send me a dictionary also so I get my spelling better, but, it is well known english is not my native language. It aint the language spoken where I live in.
NO MORE BOBBY
June 24th, 200910:50 pm
Mets have so many starters out and still whip the Cardinals. Think we could pull that off? Go ahead and laugh out loud now. I did.
I agree Epi, I got mad, annoyed, frustrated, all of the above but I liked that they didn’t lay down and die..not when KK had to go early, not when the Yankees went up 4-0, not after the bad call, and not even in the 8th. They fought all the way up until Mo took the hill. And there’s no coming back 5 on Mo most nights, especially not when they played as sloppy as they played tonight.
In this age of “ooh, I have a hangnail and need 2 weeks of rehab,” wouldn’t it have been bitchin if Kawakami shook off that hit and kept pitching for a win?
He’d be a legend.
I got your back…it’s Panamanian
June 24th, 200910:52 pm
Why is Bennett on this team still?—– NO MORE BOBBY
For the same reason Norton is.
For the same reason KJ is
For the same reason Reitsma was for a long time
For the same reason Corky was for a long time
For the same reason Orr and Woodward were for a long time
For the same reason Boyer was for a long time
For the same reason James was for a long time
Longer than they should have………………
They just dont care on the outcome of the season……..an average season they can live with…….they dont care about rings……….it is clear.

Doc–take it easy man, it was a joke. Geez. I actually have a lot of respect for bilingual people, as I’ve taken a lot of Spanish classes and was never any great shakes at it.
As for the dictionary stuff, there are quite a few folks on here that could use it more than you or I. LOL!
Please dont make me look bad…………..what team are you on ???????? LOL
June 24th, 200910:54 pm
Come on RHR, just tryin’ to keep it real up in here.
I’ll work on it.
Ha Mitchell, I can’t say nothing. I’ve matched you comment for comment tonight. When KK got hit I got feisty and didn’t let up.
“Mets have so many starters out and still whip the Cardinals. Think we could pull that off? Go ahead and laugh out loud now. I did.”
Trust me, if they had to have those starters the rest of the year, it will catch up to them. We didn’t really fall off the map last year till right after the all star break when all those season ending injuries started to pile up and coincide with the nagging injuries of Chipper and Escobar, and McCann’s collision at the plate. If they have that lineup long enough it will take its toll on them.
June 24th, 200910:55 pm
I am about to get on McFann’s bad side. BMac sucked tonight. I think he caught what the rest of the team has. This team has no heart. They can’t make routine plays. Over the weekend series the sox announcers were talking about not knowing what ATL team you would see offensively. I agree. Not one player came up to bat tonight with a plan. Not even Chipper or BMac. The defese was … I can’t say on the blog. ATL got a gift call from the umps and still gave the game away. I want so bad to believe in this team, but nights like tonight makes me not want to watch anymore. But, I will . I am hopelessly addicted to this insanity. This might be the worst game they have played if not for the debacle in Phili at the beginning of the year. I will not put this on the BP. I put this loss on the whole team outside of KK and Medlen. The team overall SUCKED tonight. At least Chipper didn’t make another freaking error. This has to be BMac’s worst game ever. I mean all the way back to t-ball.
June 24th, 200910:56 pm
You Have Been On The Aggressive/Violent Side lately…
This Team has gotten to you…I guess you are tired of them playing with your emotions as am I….
yours? lol…just helping….my browser catches misspellings when I type so I didn’t even have to look it up…lol…just tried to spell it myself…and I got it wrong by the way.
Steve from OH ,
Im cool, it was just a joke…………..and then I got an arrow from someone else on the blog
June 24th, 200910:57 pm
Are we gonna blame Francoeur for this loss too?
June 24th, 200910:58 pm
Anyway……….I have no excuse since Im from Panama myself.
June 24th, 200910:59 pm
I still don’t see how Joe getting ejected sparked them….he didn’t even look upset and the ump did all but laugh at him….he had to ask to be ejected….it wasn’t Bobby esk…I’ve even seen Torre look madder than THAT.
Kelly down to .219
He’s definitely free fallin’
June 24th, 200911:00 pm
I think the USA Soccer game is on ESPN2 right now…for anyone who wants to watch it

Bill in VA
I’ve been a Brave watcher for a loooong time! Since Bobby Cox was 8 years old, to be exact. What many of you say is true. Who is that guy in left field? That kind of play, offensive and defensive, is contagious. Matt Diaz isn’t perfect, but he gives it 100%. Right field lost me when he bitched about the demotion last year. Out the door! As for Bennett? Predictable result, yet again! I was in Boston when he blew that one on 1 pitch.
We fans deserve better. Let the front office know.
June 24th, 200911:02 pm
I was violent?
Oh yeah, I offered DOB cash money to sucker punch Chip Caray.
June 24th, 200911:03 pm
A couple more random rants. Loaf is Loaf. He gives up more runs than he produces.
KJ, I keep hoping him and Francouer will trip in the dugout, break some ankles and be DLed the rest of the year. We as Braves fans should be DLed just for having to watch them this season.
Chipper has gotten really old, realy, really fast. His bat has slowed way down. He will struggle for 20HR seasons the rest of his career. Don’t want to get started on his defense.
This whole team needs to see a shrink.
On a more serious note. I saw the difference between Medlen and Hanson tonight. Hanson doesn’t get rattled. Medlen gives up the HR and should have been pulled immediately. He is not ready for the “SHOW”. He want remain with ATL for long.
ATL got their collective ARSES kicked by a no name catcher, Joba the Hut, and well they kicked their on ARSES tonight also.
June 24th, 200911:04 pm
As of the last game or two, Francoeur is back on track. The key to his resurgence appears to be opposing pitchers throwing him fat pitches right down the middle.
If you can arrange it I will sucker punch him for free…
June 24th, 200911:06 pm
Not Really Voilent…I was Joking…But You Have Become More Agressive since the start of the season from watching this team play with your emotions…
I think I’m with Epinephrine on this one. With KK going down so early, you don’t exactly expect to win. And with these Braves, you certainly don’t expect to win down 4-1 in the 7th. But they kept fighting, kept scratching and made this game a lot closer than it could have been. They could easily have given up and gotten blown out but they didn’t. The offense didn’t suddenly turn back the clock to 2003 or whenever it was they just went gangbusters with Lopez jacking like 45 or something, but they scratched out their 4 runs. Hopefully they’ll come back strong again tomorrow and we’ll be able to hang some more zeroes up on the Yankees.
June 24th, 200911:07 pm
Why would DOB do your dirty work. He don’t need your little $1500, that chicken feed to the Man.
siskel_god, I forgot about Frenchy. Thanks for reminding me. Does anyone ever notice that when he hits a HR, every other AB he comes up swinging out of his shoes. Well, that’s all I got. He played a good game tonight. Funny thing though, he comes to play and the rest of the team takes the night off.
I ask myself the same question…why do good players keep getting hurt….
Francoeur Is Still A Below Average Singles Hitter That plays at a position that is dependant upon decent power numbers, especially the braves…
June 24th, 200911:08 pm
O’Ijustshatmypantsflaretol in the 8th!
Down by one!
Are you freggin’ kidding me?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Just got home from the game – not happy)
June 24th, 200911:09 pm
Wow. I feel like I watched a different game than a lot of you.
Medlen looked good for a few innings then lost control of the strike zone-seemed like his nerves got to him. He definitely deserves responsibility for letting runs in. Were it not for a lucky call, that would have been a 2 run homer on his watch. And he set the table for Bennett.
Jeff Bennett is not good. Nor is Acosta. But we are not the Yankees. We don’t have that payroll. It seems like a lot of people expect our bullpen to give up 0 runs a game. Bullpen pitchers don’t have 0.00 ERAs. Not even closers. Especially not middle relievers. Per 2 innings they are going to average around 1-2 runs a game. That is what we are paying for, and that is what we get. Expecting perfection out of mop up guys is asking for heart burn.
Mac had a bad game. He basically has been carrying this team this year, so give the guy a pass. He isn’t going to go 3/4 every game, and he isn’t going to go the entire year without giving up a run.
This was a gutsy performance by this group until the 8th when things unraveled. The Braves lost their starter after 3 innings to an injury. We didn’t have any of our three best relievers available. And yet the team still kept clawing back, making it an interesting game.
This is a game on paper we probably should have lost anyway-KK v. Joba, who has been pitching well lately. Take KK out after 3, and guess what, odds of a loss go up considerably. I just don’t know what game you guys were watching.
June 24th, 200911:11 pm
Jeff’s wife took him if he got traded she was dropping his a@@. Jeff play better to stay.
Wayne in Utah
June 24th, 200911:12 pm
I missed innings 3-5. Exactly what happened to Kawakami? Is he going to be OK?
Thanks in advance.
bravos2249, I asked that same ? to my wife tonight. I don’t get it. Alot of good players get hurt. Bad ones don’t. Could be the ammount of effort bein used? The best thing that could happen right now is for either KJ or Frenchy to get hurt and DLed. Nothing serious, I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. These 2 guys are killing us. In an NL game, we have 3 automatic outs every freaking game. And as usaul, Frenchy does nothing when it needs to counts.
June 24th, 200911:13 pm
Joe Girardi reminded me of Gene Hackman as the coach in Hoosiers asking to be ejected from the game.
June 24th, 200911:15 pm
Not sure I want to go down that slippery slope of wishing some of our players get injured, even if only minor injuries.
(though I have probably wished some injury on Barry Bonds when he was chasing “The Hammer!”
It’s not that they lost. It’s how they lost with piss poor defense, and uncharacteristic play by McCann. I watched the same game. The last 2 innings didn’t bother me. It was innings 5-7.
June 24th, 200911:16 pm
thought the same thing. instead of the picket fence, the next guy hit it over the fence.
June 24th, 200911:17 pm
Sonny Cluster, no, I don’t “need” DOB to do my dirty work, but I just thought I’d offer since he was sitting in the next booth over and me and my hit men are 150 miles away.
Maybe tomorrow night one of the Yanks can line a ball off of Bennetts redneck head and knock him out for the season!!!
June 24th, 200911:19 pm
Wayne, the official word is day to day. They didn’t do x-rays and called it a contusion. It was scary for sure, that’s when I got mad. But it sounds like he’ll be okay.
last I checked Bennett pitched about 3 days ago….Acosta hasn’t pitched in about 2 weeks…..they looked the same….THAT’S NOT GOOD….Acosta is expected to look bad….Bennett has been used….it doesn’t matter…How stupid do you have to be to throw a fast ball right there 0-2 to a guy that’s struggling and just missed one that almost went in the dirt.
June 24th, 200911:20 pm
How ya been? I have come to realize that you are the only smart one around here. You stay off the blog until well after 90% of the dimwits leave!
Nate the GR8
June 24th, 200911:21 pm
People saying they dont understand how Joe Girardi getting thrown out changed the game. Look at the AB right after that. Cervelli hits the HR thats why it changed. He was determined after that to do something and he did.
two situations stick out. two out in the sixth nobody on and medlen cant get the next three hitters and the ground ball hit to kotchman to lead off the eighth.
June 24th, 200911:22 pm
Wayne in Utah, I did too. I am just frustrated. KJ and Frenchy are probably to great guys, but they are hurting us just by showing up. It’s not like BC is going to bench them. In truth, It’s not like BC realy has a choice.
Just got in from the game. Overheard in Section 402: “It’s cheaper to fly in from New York and see the team here.”
Its pretty hard when the Braves have to go up against a team of ballplayers, and a team of umpires on a daily basis.. Talk about crap officiating in this game.. The Yankee CF was clearly safe on that Medlen pickoff attempt.. Cano was clearly in the base path and should have been out with no runs allowed, and instead 2 runs come across..
The Braves would have lost anyways because Jeff Bennett did again what he does best, and that is gives up runs.. Jeff Bennett is the new Blaine Boyer of the Braves.. I know they can look through the waiver wire, or call someone else up that will do a better job then this useless tool.. The guy sucks, and doesn’t deserve to be on a MLB team.. Nothing else to say but wow.. That was just a poor game all the way around..
June 24th, 200911:23 pm
By my quick postgame calculation:
Seven of 18 runners Bennett has inherited this season have scored, and opponents are 9-for-17 (.529) against him with runners in scoring position and two outs.
I agree with Tomahawkin. You were very violent tonight…but also very funny. Keep it up!
June 24th, 200911:24 pm
Any thoughts on the NBA draft tomorrow evening? Around here, some are thinking that if Tyler Hansbrough is around for the 20th pick, he would be perfect for Jerry Sloan’s system.
Anybody want a power forward with a 12.7 million dollar contract? Only problem is he only plays about 40-60% of the year, and plays matador defense.
I get the whole being loyal to the players that Bobby does but what about being loyal to the team and fans?
JOHNSON HAS TO SIT AND PLAY PRADO OR FLIPPIN ANYONE AT 2B BESIDES HIM!!!!!!!!
uga-brave, Agree. Also the HR Medlen gave up. Not bashing Medlen. He just seemed to have lost his composure after that. Couldn’t throw strikes consistently.
June 24th, 200911:25 pm
Braves hope Kawakami can make his next start, but at worst it sounds like they’d just move him back with the off day in the schedule Monday.
“I’m fine – I’m alive,” Kawakami said through an interpreter. “At first I was very worried that it might have hit a bone.”
He was diagnosed with a contusion near the base of his neck and will be reevaluated in two or three days to determine if he can make his next start.
Cox said, “We think he’s going to be OK, but we won’t know for sure for at least two days. There’s a lot of swelling, a lot of discoloration, a lot of bleeding in it.”
I don’t wish injury on anyone, but it wouldn’t hurt my feelings if that did happen to Bennett.. He is useless.. I am also sick and tired of seeing that huge wad of whatever it is in his mouth as he is walking his hick a$$ back to the dugout talking to himself in his glove..
June 24th, 200911:26 pm
too bad Medlen gets stuck with the loss
yeah it can get a little thick. last night we were playoff bound, tonight we stink.
this is a mediocre team other then the rotation and the the two guys at the back of the bullpen.
over 162 things become somewhat obvious.
June 24th, 200911:28 pm
So in other words, you are saying what the rest of us are saying and that is Jeff Bennett sucks? Never put that tool in the game when its on the line.. Everyone except Bobby Cox must get that Jeff Bennett will find a way to blow it.. I hate that guy, he is a waste of roster spot, and a waste of space..
The Abs Man
Are you people all blind? Cox is the problem. Period. Next paragraph. This team goes nowhere until he is kicked to the curb.
Can’t you realize Braves don’t play smart intelligent fundamental baseball because the ‘players’ manager,’ doesn’t demand it. Doesn’t even know what it is at thjs point. He just wamts his guys to just go out and play, and I’ll cheer like this is high school.
No plan, no crispness, no energy. This team does not play smart because Brain Dead Bobby is a more bankrupt industry than GM. He doesn’t manage smartly, is an absolute horrid game tactician, and the team doesn’t play heads-up.
They give any too many games, as a manager he constantly surrenders advantage, and it’s obvious Cox has no clue. See Jeff Bennett rule.
And by the way, stick a parking meter in left field. It will collect quarters and play the same defense as Garret Anderson.
June 24th, 200911:29 pm
“We had one bad pitch with an 0-2 count, a pitch that came back over the plate,” Cox said, “and we didn’t cover first – that cost us two runs. Other than that, we played a good game.”
June 24th, 200911:30 pm
The more we bash the old man, the more you realize he knows things we don’t. Acosta would’ve been the only other logical choice to face A-Roid in that situation considering Gonzo/Soriano have been used so much and they’re set-up/closers…Moylan–same. Anyways, who’s to say Acosta wouldn’t have come in a gave up a grand slam right there? He sure didn’t look good later. Hey, I bashed Cox when he brought Bennett in, so I’ll take a little blame there too.
I will give props to Mclouth. He played his arse off. To bad that one fly ball could have stayed fair.
June 24th, 200911:31 pm
But I mean, can anyone honestly disagree about how annoying Chip Caray was tonight? I usually don’t even notice him when others are complaining about him but good lord. First of all, he’s been slobbering all over the Yankees since last night and then he didn’t even wait until the 2nd inning before he started throwing out “no hitter” and “perfect game” over and over and over and over again – and I’m NOT exaggerating. What home team broadcaster does that? Seriously. Is nothing sacred? I know it’s just superstition but that crap annoys me. Don’t mess with that!
Unfortunately, Mclouth will be lifeless like the rest of the team by next season. They except defeat. The except mediocrity. Thanks BC.
June 24th, 200911:35 pm
It didn’t come back over the plate, it was right down the middle from the time it left Bennett’ hand. Can somebody get Bobby a pair of Heap’s glasses? I mean yeah yeah sure, if you want to say “we had one bad pitch” fine, but don’t be acting like it just accidentally went down the middle of the plate. Sheesh.
June 24th, 200911:37 pm
Maybe we need to get Anderson and Kotchman one of these
June 24th, 200911:38 pm
It couldn’t have possibly been any worse, jason. I expect it from ESPN, thats nothing new. It irks me when it’s our home team broadcasters. Even Joe got in on it and I usually like Joe.
June 24th, 200911:39 pm
But if Acosta did give up a GS it’s not like he’s pitched everyday and is used tooo much.
June 24th, 200911:44 pm
How about how over and over early on they talked about how bad the Yankees were hitting, an almost out by out sumary of our scoreless steak and threw up graphic after graphic about them. Especially when their big hitters came up. That, with Chip’s tone, was almost like they were saying “come on you great Yankees. Show us that great offense!”
I’m glad I’m going to the game tomorrow and don’t have to listen
June 24th, 200911:46 pm
I meant streak instead of steak
bravos2249, I said that because I heard the announcer mention Acosta had been pretty sick and was still feeling weak. That, I assume, is why Bobby hadn’t been using him lately and why he didn’t against A-Roid. Me, I’d have bitten the bullet and put Moylan out there even though he’s been used more than prostitute lately. It really was the at bat of the game. Lowe tomorrow…pray he’s back to form because I have a feeling old man Pettite will be on his game.
Alright, going out for some Krystal’s and watching a movie with my girlfriend. See ya’ll tomorrow…you know I’ll be here!!
Atelast we actually showed some life in the late innings. Lets go out there and get tomorrow,
Did you ask Mr.Wren about DeRosa, He really could look good
June 24th, 200911:47 pm
30-7 when we score atleast 4 runs
June 24th, 200911:52 pm
i agree with you on chip. he is abrasive. i thought joe was going to hit when he said it is hard for the umpire to watch the plate and the throw to first.
then he did not realize that diaz was put in the game in the pitchers spot in the ninth to play right field and acosta was in the seven hole.
note to chip it is called a double switch.
June 24th, 200911:56 pm
Just got back from the Ted. I hope I never see Bennett put his fat friggin’ carcass into a Braves uni ever friggin’ again. You just knew the game was over when you saw that tub of useless lard waddle in from the bullpen. Dude loses a ton of weight, and rises out of nowhere because of it, and becomes a serviceable enough major league middle reliever. Then he decides, hey, even though all that weight loss really helped resurrect my career, why don’t I sabotage it again by stuffing my fat face again? If he just sucked because he sucks, that would be one thing. But it’s the reason why he sucks that really ticks me off.
As painful as it was, it was awesome though to see the greatest reliever of all time (and there isn’t a reliever anywhere even close), at his absolute jaw dropping best.
June 24th, 200911:59 pm
Forgot to mention that I talked to Infante today. He’s doing well, much faster recovery than when he had this same injury during winter ball after the 2007 season. He began doing firm-grip exercises today, will start hitting off a tee next week, expects to begin a minor league rehab assignment after the All-Star break.
June 25th, 200912:01 am
should of seen the look on kj’s face when he stepped in against mariano.
looked like he was about to shart.
jason – Unfortunately, Mclouth will be lifeless like the rest of the team by next season. They except defeat. The except mediocrity. Thanks BC.
THANK YOU!! IT HAS BEEN TOO LAID BACK HERE FOR A LONG TIME (TOO LONG). AND YES THE BRAVES ACCEPT DEFEAT BECAUSE BOBBY JUST SHRUGS IT OFF.
Is it bad that I prefer the ESPN telecast
It’s like picking your poison.
June 25th, 200912:03 am
Mariano Rivera has converted 32 of 33 save opps in interleague play.
Oh, and that ninth-inning at-bat was only the second at-bat of Rivera’s entire major league career.
June 25th, 200912:08 am
Oh, and that ninth-inning at-bat was only the second at-bat of Rivera’s entire major league career. (DOB)
And somehow he smoked a line drive off a 96 mph heater from his Panamanian brother. What a waste of a 96 mph heater Acosta has
June 25th, 200912:11 am
I like watching the non-Braves broadcast teams do Braves games. Joe has become such a homer that I can’t stand listening to him anymore. I know that the team and the networks have really ratcheted up their pimping of the Braves, but does Joe really have to be this bad?
I expect it out of Chip. He’s all over the place. He slobbers over teams like the Yanks, Sox, Cards and Cubs. He makes blindly stupid homer comments. For example…the one tonight about Rivera’s 0-2 pitch to Kelly: “That pitch was closer to Cooperstown than it was to the strike zone.” The pitch couldn’t have been more than five or six inches outside.
Then, he gets stupid…
On the next pitch, Rivera makes Kelly shart with a hellish cutting fastball (thanks, uga) that induces a fugly swing-and-miss for strike three. Chip called it a slider! A slider? Rivera throws one damn pitch, Chip. One.
June 25th, 200912:12 am
UGA, at least KJ only looked like he was about to shart. The look on his face is usually that of someone who already sharted himself but is hoping no one has noticed
June 25th, 200912:13 am
Is that fair
kelly .132 3 doubles and no homeruns in the month of june.
kotchman .200 0 extra basehits in the month of june.
they have combined for four rbi during the month.
Oh yeah, I offered DOB cash money to sucker punch Chip Caray. RHR
$1000 if I remember correctly. Hey, I’d do it…then again, it probably wouldn’t even be enough for my bail money, so you’d have to up the ante a little bit.
that trade could work….
June 25th, 200912:14 am
a. Cabrera from indians +Derosa for frenchy/medlen
June 25th, 200912:15 am
What a waste of a 96 mph heater Acosta has
I know, right? It’s a real shame, too, because a lot of good pitchers languish in obscurity because they don’t have the natural stuff Manny has. Man, what I career I woulda had with that heater…(joking)
June 25th, 200912:17 am
Look dont blame the pitching our offense needs to have some flame
June 25th, 200912:18 am
Pettite has owned the braves, but that was the times he used steroids
June 25th, 200912:22 am
What the hell has happened to Joba Chamberlain’s heater? Dude only topped out at 94, and he only touched that a few times later in the game.
June 25th, 200912:23 am
Here’s a quote from the AP recap:
With a sly grin, Girardi conceded that he was determined to get thrown out when he went out to argue with Welke.
“If we’ll score eight runs after I get ejected,” Girardi said, “I’ll do it when I take out the lineup card.”
Coach ( 2010 or Bust)
June 25th, 200912:24 am
OK. I’m in agreement with Bobby Cox for once. The 0-2 pitch to A-Rod with the bases loaded was absolutely idiotic. The question is, who is the moron who called for Jeff Bennett to groove an 0-2 fastball to A-Rod when they should have wasted a pitch?
I’m betting that idiot is Bobby Cox.
I can’t comment on the rest of the game as I was so angered by that one pitch that I turned the game off. I can’t say that I missed anything during the last three innings.
But I will leave the blog with this last thought.
That is the average run support per game this month from our offense after the Nate McLouth trade. So how the hell can our Braves be expected to win while scoring an average of less than four runs per game? The answer is obvious. They can’t, they aren’t and they won’t. Turn out the lights the party is over. It’s (2010 or Bust)
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
