Escy has more “near misses” than i remember anyone having
rob from SC (Yunel Escobar's Muscle)
Hey Joe Simpson,
Every time Francoeur grounds out and you say he got all of it, I wonder what is going on inbetween your ears
Frenchy starts hitting everything and Mac starts swinging like Frenchy. Hmmm.
June 25th, 20099:38 pm
Joe Must’ve been reading the Blog because he has soften up on Esco now…
At least Escobar has more RBIs tonight than he has errors — so far….
StingerSplash Back to back…
…to back to back to back to back to back.
Well, OK, the walk broke it up, I guess.
good to hear bobby stil cheering for escy every pitch
We’re in the twilight zone RHR.
June 25th, 20099:39 pm
That Fck’n Jeter…OOOOOHHHH!!!!
Maybe Frenchy has been listening to Mac’s Dad and Brian has been listening to TP???
Canadaian braves fan
one guy gets hot another goes cold ……man we can’t catch a break
McCann’s left five runners on base tonight, after striking out three times and making two errors last night.
CT in AL

Esco hits the ball so freakin’ hard every at bat, but its a shame mac got in a funk during the biggest homestand of the season. Maybe he’ll turn it around in his next at bat for a game changer
Mac is pressing. I’ve seen him have better at bats when we are blown out at the end of games. Get back to what you did all along. He of all players does not need to change.
Oh well, Does anyone have a live chicken to sacrifice so we can DOB’ s curse off of McCann’s bat?
Pretty bad when 5 or 6 runs gets you a loss.
June 25th, 20099:41 pm
Thanks for the tip…
McCann has looked really bad the last two days after crushing three balls on Tuesday.
June 25th, 20099:42 pm
Maybe Mac needs a day off for a “night game after a night game” now.
The Braves season will be over by the 2nd half…it wont matter what Lowe oes by then.
And McCann’s glove as well.
glord You cant expect him to be on every day, he’s not Pujols. The guy is batting .360+ in the last 30 games, pretty solid numbers there.
No But There Is A KFC nearby No…?
We Need a live Chicken to sacrifice for KJ
June 25th, 20099:43 pm
You can tell the boy is exhausted…Maccoroni is one tired young feller.
Smoltz outpitched Lowe
im pretty happy with that Smoltz Update
Look how good the lineup is when Frenchy is not an automatic out. This team has been underachieving all season, and they can get better. They’ve shown a lot of grit and fight at the plate the last few series. When Francouer gets hits, Braves score 6, 7 runs. When he doesn’t, they score 3 or less.
AM I the only one who wishes they’d STFU about Smotlz….
Well…atleast we still aren’t losing ground to Phillie. We need to win at some point to really take advantage, though.
Ha. Kotch ran it to first himself today.
June 25th, 20099:44 pm
Oh, I’m Ready to boo the Hell out of The Overpaid J.D. Screw…
The Biggest Bust of My Generation
j williams, thanks for the pep talk. We need that with all the negative crap we read on here.
But that wont be Lowes fault. That might be something to do with the RF, LF, and 1B having 11 HR combined.
I hope they keep Escobar in the 5 spot for the rest of the season.
June 25th, 20099:45 pm
Here we go. Let it out people.
THAT IS A TOUGH PLAY
This Escy Jeter connection is getting weird
Chip Stop Trying to be funny…! I bet he’s annoying when he gets drunk…! He’s Probably like that “What Are you doing” dude on those old Budwieser commercials
Thanks for your comment at 9:39 PM. That should effectively lift your curse off McCann.
Watch as he laces on to right, the next at bat.
June 25th, 20099:46 pm
Tomahawkin- Tyson Farms doesn’t have enough chicken for KJ!!!
Esco’s Hip is killing him Nuff said…!
Derek Jeter gets the easy hop and Yunel, this is just not your night tonight.
HIS HIP IS f****** UP HIS dEFENSE
if that were fair, and Loaf had to run more than 15 feet, Damon would have just had an inside the parker
GA must’ve known that one was foul. lol
Tomahawkin @ 9:38 – he sure has, hasn’t he? Maybe someone got in his ear about that.
June 25th, 20099:47 pm
McCann needs a night off..he is woren out
1. Lowe getting rocked by the junkees————no surprise there
2. Braves scoring more than 5 runs with tonight lineup ——–no surprise there
3. Mc letting us down is more than 1 keep situation ——— big surprise there
4. Cox steering the wheel rather well tonight.————— big surprise
5. Escobar has like 10 errors tonight ———no surprise there
6. Junkees pitching getting rocked ————– no surprise there
7. Junkees scoring lots of runs—————— no surprise there
8. logan into the game —————- big surprise
9. If the junkees complete their NY meltdown ————there will be no surprise there
10. if braves complete the comeback —————- would be a huge surprise
Come on boys ………………make my day.
June 25th, 20099:48 pm
That is what I was thinking that GA was running like he knew it was foul……a wait a minute nevermind.
This should be Boone’s last hitter.
June 25th, 20099:49 pm
rob from SC – Smoltz pitched against the Nats, Lowe the Yankees – you may be unaware that there is a quantitative (and qualitative) difference in their scoring capabilities.
Owch. That was pretty close – thought he had the Kout.
Right down the middle.
Tomahawkin, you mean he’s not drunk on air?
Bullpen gonna put this game out of reach.
June 25th, 20099:50 pm
Look at GAMEDAY…ump’s been missing them to the Braves’ demise.
that was pretty close, IMO should’ve been a K. tough break
First of all, that was a f***ing strike.
Second, if Tex was playing for us, he’d strike out in this situation.
Damon should be out.
WHy not bring in Moylan….Tex kills hitting RH.
June 25th, 20099:51 pm
Chip is just begging for Teixeria to get a hit. “By the way, Tex is the only Yankee without a hit tonight” as he comes to the plate.
Try using smaller words…
Think Tes was a Brave long enough to know how to hit into a GIDP right now?
Mitchell You’re nuts! Tex put up like 60 rbis in 56 games for us…
cmon tex, DP
why do our pitchers never get the called third strike
June 25th, 20099:52 pm
Mac needs to work on his arm, he allows too many steals.
I think he had it stolen on Logan really. Mac didn’t have a chance.
Logan run out of gas, maybe? Hopefully Bobby will get someone in here after this AB.
Explain to me why we haven’t stole on Posada tonight?
Listen to the moron in the crowd saying ‘ground ball!’ ‘ground ball!’ Yeah no chit. What do you think he wants to do here? I mean, thank goodness some hack in the stands is telling the major league pitcher what to do. Whew!
(Intentional walks for the loss)
Damonn should have been out on strikes. No breaks tonight from the umps either.
Not Macs fault. Perfect throw but Jeter was already there
Walk him to get to A-rod? Hmm….bring in Moylan
June 25th, 20099:53 pm
Put. In. Ross.
Yankees Running At Will on B-Macc and All Of Our Pitchers…
I think Its the pitchers fault more than B-Macc…
McDowell needs to do his job and stress how important it is to hold runners on…!
Don’t you just love the NNY mgr.? I love his style….double steal.
Got it all set for Moylan. I’ll go with all three runners scoring and fill in the blanks after that.
Even the radio guys sais Loaf was only going for that ball at 65%
June 25th, 20099:54 pm
“”why do our pitchers never get the called third strike”"
Cause the umpires usually bet on the other team?
Soph I think he had it stolen on Logan really. Mac didn’t have a chance.
Yeah, but still…
I mean, what the heck happened to him? Is his dog dying or something?
McCann needs a day or two off. He looks exhausted. No arm strength, and no bat speed.
On a brighter note, Rays 9, Fightin’s 4 in the 7th
Bravos 2249 – I agree since surgery Posada throws like a little leaguer. Ofcourse it could be that we have been behind all night.
I love how Teixeira gets away with being a “slow starter”. Oh, I’m a slow starter. I’ll get hot eventually.
No, that means you suck. If you supposedly get good at a certain point in the season when the rest of the time you struggle, that means you’re not good.
Peter’s going to get A-Rod.
June 25th, 20099:55 pm
7 I love his style….double steal.
I hate it, but whatever.
Uh oh. Does Petey know they mentioned his “current” girlfriend on air?
That’s the difference between the Yankees and the Braves. Their manager will do something to put pressure on the opposing team like double steal in that situation.
June 25th, 20099:56 pm
This is the matchup we should have gotten last night instead of calling for Jeff Bennett….let’s see what we get.
The umps have been bad all year. You have to suck it up and play.
DOB jinxed Mac with the blog yesterday lol!
How about an 0-2 Wild Ptich
When was Mac’s last day off?
damn chip why don’t ya just give ol roid rod a hand job…..loser
June 25th, 20099:57 pm
TNScott We don’t have speed on our side, why would we do a double steal? McClouth has been sent a bunch of times and its worked. My biggest issue is why he didn’t play Schafer in the lead off spot. The guy is lightning quick and a simple walk can turn into a runner in scoring position.
I bet Pete get the DP
Smoltz 5 earned in 5 innings
Andruw Jones hitting .246
Ken Griffey hitting .222
Furcal hitting .241
Abosultely no one will offer Tom Glavine a contract
A big +5 for Frank Wren
I don’t know about the Nats “inability to score”. They scored 10 vs. Dodgers in LA and 12 vs. Phillies in Philly. Both teams were leading their Divisions at the time.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
