ISOLATED , ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME, YOU STUPID IDIOTIC MORON!!!!
Frank Wren dissed Cal Ripkin junior and did the same to Tom Glavine years later. That ain’t isolated, that is man who doesn’t learn from his mistakes. The kind of man who will run this franchise right into the damn ground!
I’m Led To Believe That Chip Carey’s Contract is up at the end of the year, because He is doing his best Yankee Auditions For the YES Network and BSPN…
He Just gets off on praising these guys…
rob from sc
Congats to Jason Heyward for making the futures game
Freddie Freeman belongs there too

I mean for all we know Escobar hurt his hip again and was stretching his leg out at Shortstop….I mean frustrated or not…he had to dive again tonight and he could be frustrated that his hip hurts….I mean I’m not trying to blame Lowe but he knows Escobar is hurt….and if anyone on this team….CHIPPER…was a leader they would have gone right up to Escobar after he yelled BS and calm him down….I know he’s grown…but it’s not like one of his teammates couldn’t calm him down…..
LOL anyone remember when Tex had to calm Huddy down….hahaha
Steve from OH
I’m not hating on him but that Platoon with him and Loaf is barely Passing the Test…
Whoa, they took that test and got sent back to remedial baseball a long time ago man…try to keep up.
anything to say about the claim that Escy gave the bird a la Mike Vick? I don’t know if you have seen replays or anything like that
Nats beating up on the Sox. They can stop right there. Don’t make that team mad before they get into town.
June 25th, 20098:52 pm
Ca…how do you know he wasn’t ready for the next play….oh just because joe simpson a former outfielder said so….
Anyone Just hear Bobby…? LOL
X-Country Braves Fan
need more runs here, just no dp
June 25th, 20098:53 pm
Steve in Ohio, defender of the stupid, leader of the losers, first in line to accept mediocrity.
Great job, Matty!
After 3 pitches to Prado…Pettitte up to 81 pitches here in the 4th.
Aight Guys We Got To Come Back…!!!!
wow, the yankees want to let us back in this thing
Prado is a stud, KJ should never see the field again.
Time for big mouth Chipper to come through
I do like that Chip calmly pointed out Escobar’s mistake in play and did it with professionalism and let it go.
Joe did not act professional in that instance.
Like watching a bad golf swing, I think watching the Braves last night is rubbing off on the Yankees a little bit.
what a break….
June 25th, 20098:54 pm
Yankees are trying to give us the game again…
Man What If Lowe Pitched Good
Hoss Come On!!!!
some funky defense in this series
Whatever, dude. You think he dissed Glavine. I think he made the best choice for his club and did what he had to do. If you disagree, then I don’t know what to tell you.
Coach ( 2010 or Bust)
Steve loves Lowe. Be Careful LOL
June 25th, 20098:55 pm
Chipper and McCann need to do something here.
I have no confidence in Chipper anymore. He is struggling big time.
Man We Got A Break!!!
I rewound the game and looked for myself…he was standing with his hands on his hips as D Lowe was delivering his pitch…
June 25th, 20098:56 pm
Escobar should not be buried. I don’t know why Simpson hammers him all the time but I will say this. Being visibly angry about a scoring and and noting getting into fielding position after is a HUGE freaking problem.
My guess is that Simpson may have some inside info on some other issues that the general public does not know regarding Yunels attitude. What do you think DOB?
June 25th, 20098:57 pm
Escobar needs to kick someones ass, then people will be too afraid to badmouth him.
Call me Escobar I got your back
Our 2009 Braves, going down in a flaming sh!tball of rotten stench!
I hate losing, I hate it with a passion!!!!!
I agree with you. I can be a passionate person myself sometimes and every now and then I need someone to come in and bascially tell me off. Bobby doesn’t do that. I have a feeling Ozzie guillen does. Being nice doesn’t always work. Sometimes you need tough love. Esco may be one of those people.
rob from sc
gotta give chipper credit..he is battling
June 25th, 20098:58 pm
What do you mean professionalism – Joe is paid to offer commentary on dumb moves like that, which is a lot different than just being untalented.
3-2 count…..89 pitches for Pettitte.
I mean if Chipper came and got in his face….I would have been ok with that….on the field right after it happened
Why all the love for Chipper, last year he became a singles to win himself a batting title. He gave up on the team for individual success
DFA Escobat the jerk, or send him back to Rookie league. He has had attitude problems his entire career. Nobody wants to put up with that crap. Too bad we didn’t dump him in the Peavy trade. Guy sux !!!!!!
Rob from SC-
So when you are standing in the field and give someone the finger because you are angry, you shouldn’t get called out for it? How about pouting while the game is being played?
Damn. This Chipper at bat is long enough for me to finish a James Joyce novel.
June 25th, 20098:59 pm
Good AB Chipper. Very good.
Come on Mac, hit a grand slam.
Loaded for big mac
If a player is going to be criticized that bad..it should be by the manager or a coach…..Joe sounded worse than Bobby did.
Come On B-Macc We Need a Gapper! Don’t Swing for the fences Baby!!!
Okay, I lied. I’m still watchin’.
Vinnings Jim – Exactly
I have no problem helping Escobar take out Bobby Cox, Chipper Jones or Garret Anderson.
OK….McCannn…make him work, then send it in the gap.
Coach, I’m not “in” Ohio. I’m “from” Ohio. Get it straight.
Oh, and feel free to stop on by sometime and I’ll let you tell me if you think my life is “mediocre” or I’m a “loser.”
How do I make one of those laughing faces again? McFann, wanna help a B-Mac fan out (he ain’t mediocre, is he?)?
June 25th, 20099:00 pm
If Mac doesn’t get a hit, Chipper is going to call Jim Rome again and bash him
Nice sign..you made there McFann…vote McCann for the allstar game
cabravesfan, how come nobody else saw the flip? i’m just sayin’. i won’t be convinced until i see multiple reports of people seeing it.
let’s go Mac…make McFann happy after yesterday’s fluke…
Dammit, dammit, dammit.
Mac, you fat @ss!
He’s not a pansy like the other 8 players on the field….He showed his disgust….someone on the team should have went up to him and calmed him down…yes it’s wrong….but he was frustrated…..we can’t criticize him for something any hard nose player would do.
That’s a big fail Mac!
that was terrible Macky
Doc Holiday - c ya in 2010
June 25th, 20099:01 pm
what a bad AB by Mc………..just thinking grand slam……………….real bad AB…………thats what I mean.
McFann…like I said…McCann needs a night off…he is beat up and the heat is getting to him
Did KJ pinch hit for McCann?
terrible AB by mac. wow
B-Macc Has Sucked Without His Jake Plummer Beard!!! Grow It back!!! Fck!
or not…hey, it’s only the 4th inning..
fells like it’s the 12th.
Time for Escobar to “make up” for his error.
Three swinging strikes for McCann.
Esco Come On!!!
Come on Esco – shut up the haters.
Cmon Esco make Joe say something nice.
June 25th, 20099:02 pm
Let’s see what JS does if Esco f’s this up.
The way that Andy just let Mac get himself out, is what Bennett was supposed to do last night
Who is warming up for the Braves?
money. whats new.
Long time Braves fan
how about yunel shutting everyone up right now, especially Joe…
Yeahhhhhh Esco! You showed them.
Put that in your pipe and smoke it Joe Simpson!!!1
Yunel haterz – Suck on that!
Escy is Mr. Clutch
There We Go ESCO!!!
STFU Joe Simpson, How do u like him Now…!
bravos2249 – yes we can – you pay attention to the play, not your personal problems. That said, great job, Yunel!
That’s the way to atone, young Mr. Escobar.
there’s some fire for ya joe
OK I can live with some pouting on this offensive enemic team
Holy s***. Are you kidding me!
That’s definitely better than 8-4.
June 25th, 20099:03 pm
Coach and that stupid Rob from wherever a small case sc is, are both idiots too. DFA them along with Escobaby. Rotten little creeps all of them, with entitlement issues. Who cares what they like or want?
Ca..that is why escobar is well liked on this blog..
Thank You TEX!!!
That’s how you handle that!!
Boy, it sure is nice to have a good hitter like Escobar batting in the slot after McCann instead of GA or Frenchy, huh?
rob from sc (Yunel Escobar's Muscle)
And unlike our Leader Chipper Jones, Escobar is playing hurt
i like how Joe is not really mentioning how good of a hit that was. clutch
Escobar’s a player. A special one. Deal with it.
He’s also hurting pretty bad right now, trying to stretch out that right hip over by first base.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
