Haha! Yes, it was actually my husband’s job that brought us up here. Income is a good thing; allows us to afford the Extra Innings package on Directv, so I can catch all these Braves games!

Chipper vs Joba
June 24th, 20097:21 pm
where was that jeff trade rumor?
I just noticed this…but how long has Chipper been using the black bat from the left-side?
I remember him only using the black bat from the right-side.
it might be insider
June 24th, 20097:22 pm
Chipper normally hits that pitch over the fence (that 3-1 pitch)
Damnit it tex
Brooklyn Braves Brawler
June 24th, 20097:23 pm
Tex is a hell of firstbase man
CHhipper has been in a funk, i dont remember the last time he was hitting under 300
I just can’t figure out why KC would do that. Andt it’s not just this year, he has another over-paid year still on the contract. Would KC pay half of that? I doubt it and I don’t see the Braves paying him 12 mil next year. I could be wrong about that, but I know for a fact that I don’t want them paying him 12 mil next year.

Scoreless after 1 inning in Tampa
nice catch nate
June 24th, 20097:27 pm
KK looking good early on!
Looks like another game with a lot people in the stands…Any guesses on attendance DOB?
June 24th, 20097:30 pm
Enter your comments here
Does KK have his own Japanese trainer? Who was that guy he was long tossing with before the game?
Frank wren said we have a limited payroll, so if we do trade for him you can guarantee that KC will pay alot of that contract. I would rather want Melky.
June 24th, 20097:31 pm
I’m guessing it was his interpreter.
VERY nice catch!
WOW, nice catch by Clout.
Wow.. Nice catch!
What a catch by McLouth!
McLouth’s defense looks better than advertised to me.
OK, now THAT is covering some serious ground. McLouth’s got wheels.
June 24th, 20097:32 pm
He covered some ground on that one.
It could be his personal translator, everyone knows how to toss a ball
wow, didn’t think he was going to catch up to that one… what a catch
Nate = Professional Center Fielder
June 24th, 20097:33 pm
I don’t even remember Andruw going to that part of LCF to get those. Wow.
Screw the stats, GG for McLouth
Bobby’s, what’s the matter, are you too stupid to figure out the italics thing? Just kidding.
No, I hear you. I think the thing that seperates the Marlins, is that they seem to have a pretty damn good grasp on analyzing talent. Whether it’s their own guys they draft and develop, or the guys the snag from other teams in the trades they make.
Chipper used a light-brown bat left-handed, IIRC, and a black bat right-handed. I see he’s now using a black bat. Is he using the right-handed bat from the left-side? If so, for how long has this been going on.
Guys don’t make a lot until they’re arb-eligible,
Relatively speaking, of course.
McClouth with the web gem! Holy crap what a catch!
Has anyone scouted KK’s interpreter?
Gonna get me a cold one. I don’t always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis. What can I say, I am the most interesting man in the world.
June 24th, 20097:34 pm
Yankees Hitting the ball pretty well against KK. Hopefully KK can adjust.
Anyone know awebsite where I can stream the video or audio for the game since PTV isn’t working and ESPN 2 is blacked out?
June 24th, 20097:35 pm
I noticed last night and tonight that Chipper is using his black bats when hitting left handed. The black bats are the ones that he normally uses right handed and are lighter. Any idea if Chipper is feeling a little weak from the left side?
Chip shut up
Yeah KK has dodged a few bullets thus far. But hey, it’s two scoreless. Still, this doesn’t figure to be another shut out.
where do you get to sit???next to wren
June 24th, 20097:37 pm
lol N8…sucks when you hit submit then look at the screen and see the error… oh well.
One more thing I forgot to mention that EPSN actually did was that when you have veterans around, then kids grown up watching them. They made a comment about how all the Atlantans have been watching Chipper over all these years.
That’s how you create a fan base, a la my sports marketing class in college. How many different kids have the kids in Florida grown up watching? I’m sure that contributes to attendance.
do you watch cricket??
My favorite team is Pakistan, Pakistan just won the 20/20 world cup. I was pumped.
Not even sure how BMac hit that ball! But I’ll take it!
Loaf’s walkup music is some old DOC “Let’s get it Funky”. Old NWA and Dre stuff from the early 90’s. Classic
June 24th, 20097:38 pm
GA hit that pretty good.
Why would Frank Wren be in the press box?
Man…if only GA had eaten another biscuit for breakfast…
June 24th, 20097:39 pm
I really have no idea where people sit, my bad
I noticed last night that Chipper is using a bat that looks like a candy cane from the left side and a barbers pole from the right side. Do you know if he is OK? He normally doesnt use that bat unless he is getting a haircut
Bill in VA
June 24th, 20097:40 pm
Casey was hot b4 he got hurt
June 24th, 20097:41 pm
casey might need some more rehab games in gwinette
hahahha look at that stat they showed for frenchy
June 24th, 20097:42 pm
Good try, Jeff.
Frenchy trying to kill the ball, whats new
Francoeur just missed a hanging slider right over the middle of the plate.
what was it??
June 24th, 20097:43 pm
Frenchy really needs to keep his hands in. He pulls them in when he starts his swing anyway, so why not just start them there in the 1st place? Keep your hands back and stay inside the ball Jeff….
June 24th, 20097:44 pm
KK keeping up the scoreless streak
Rays on top of Philly early….
June 24th, 20097:45 pm
20 scoreless innings
I can feel the excitement running through the blog thinking about Greg Norton’s possible return.
48%of his ABs are first pitch swings #1 in NL
June 24th, 20097:46 pm
Norton has 2 rbi triple today, his only AB
June 24th, 20097:47 pm
i dont know since norton has left we have been playing well
Frenchy hit another one really hard but right at someone..just bad luck again
June 24th, 20097:48 pm
I really hope we can rough up pettite, he really killed us in the WS
Can someone help me out with a link to hear the Braves game?
June 24th, 20097:49 pm
Special K takes one off the mouth piece.
Yup, big cricket fan, originally from India. Amazing win for Pakistan. I picked them over the chokers from South Africa and then Sri Lanka. Pak bowling is again pretty good with some of the younger bowlers coming thru. I hope they are able to play in IPL.
HOly smoke! KK, please be ok
Joba made some good contact. Ouch!
Way to go, Nolan Kawakami!!!!
kk almost decapitated…..did i just see him leave? damn…here comes bennett
Scary moment their
June 24th, 20097:50 pm
K-Dub is tough mother-effer! Luv that guy!
corkylikesbeer – thanks for the laugh
man, that could’ve hit him in the throat….scary…
Few inches higher and that is major disaster
June 24th, 20097:51 pm
Oh, I hope KK is OK!!
McCann almost couldn’t decide whether he should backup Kotchy like he s’posed to, or go over to Kawakami…
was that blood?
That was scary. Still not sure where it hit him. Waiting for replay.
oh sorry that was out 3 my mistake
Joe Few inches higher and that is major disaster
Baseball is a game of inches…
Try this one:
June 24th, 20097:52 pm
Looked like right collarbone area.
Afridi was awesome in that game. You have no idea what i had to go through to watch that game. Dish network said i have to pay like 250 bucks for that channel. I had to find it online
Is it bad that I prefer the ESPN telecast
Medlen comin in
Medlen’s up in ‘pen.
Damn KK is done
I guess KK must be hurt from that one.. Couldn’t really tell if he got the glove up or not.
Medlen is up in the pen.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
