did I say the wheels are coming off, lol? this team has no mental capacity
the hope of the braves nation rests in your hands mr hanson
really though, what does it matter? they have one run already….that will be plenty.
Anderson not backing up, where is the fire Joe Simpson.
Starting to unravel.
NO MORE BOBBY
June 26th, 20099:03 pm
We landed on the moon?
Garrett Anderson is a complete joke. Has been since he arrived. Too many guys loafing. Pathetic, pathetic, pathetic.
mental errors … eventually come around to hurt … etc etc.
“I with the team WIN or LOSE unlike some of you!” Jay212033
I’m still here? Haven’t gone anywhere. Not going anywhere. Still look at the standings everday. This team is playing like sh!t and I’m not gonna sugar coat it. If you want to, go ahead.
You’re fooling NOBODY but yourself. Keep telling yourself that you’re the only “true fan” on the blog.
Chipper Jones will be fine. Chipper just has to be going through a bit of a slump right now. However, one he bust out of it, he’ll be show you once again why he is “Chipper Jones”.
You guys have to remember, even a .300 hitter makes an out 7 out of 10 times. Let’s say that Chipper has a stretch where he goes 15 for 35. Well, in order for his average to fall back down to .300, he has to go 0 for his next 15.
Meanwhile, our defense is really not good. Not only did Hernandez make a bad play, but Garrett was late backing that play up. Just giving runs away.
June 26th, 20099:04 pm
That’s ok Bobby, give up the run for the out, because we score so easily, don’t we?
The Red Sox Didn’t Manufacture Shyt!!! Our AAA defense Allowed that Shyt To Happen!!!
Quit Slobbering over them!
Please Phillies just start winning and end this slow death. This team is going nowhere.
June 26th, 20099:05 pm
Seriously. A mental boo-boo let Pedroia get to second. Balk gets him to third. It’s not like the Sox single handedly got him to third.
How can Jurrjens even give a sh!t any more? Go ahead Jair, just toss the ball up there and let the Sox hit the crap outta the ball. Make the defensive players run their asses off until they can’t take it any more. A$$holes! Wren should release most of this team and go with minor leaguers the rest of the way.
I’m on the brink of just giving up interest in watching these games anymore. Its too frustrating watching a horrible team like this.
They’re playing Sittin on the dock of the bay for Jason Bay? They do know he plays for the other team, right?? This is embarrassing
If Cox can make an example out of Yunel then why not yank Anderson after that?
June 26th, 20099:06 pm
What are the odds the Braves score even one? 10% 5%?
Oh he scored in the 45 seconds I was away.
Let me guess, he stole second? I saw the replay of a ground ball to Martin which was obviously the first out of the inning. Either a wild pitch or a nice little steal by that munchkin boy.
Jair gets charged with more runs that are “earned” that shouldn’t be, than any pitcher I have seen. He got screwed over last game when he didnt give up any earned runs, but was charged with giving up 2. Just ridiculous.
If I was Jair, I would ask to be traded away from this shytty team.
June 26th, 20099:07 pm
Jackie walker is on my side
Damn if JJ doesn’t just have bad luck…first, he can’t get the bunt down that cost himself a run. Now, after the error and mental error he balks and creates a run. Poor kid.
Hudson would have to pass through waivers
Is he out of options? Fine, then stretch him out in simulated games. Why is everyone fixated on one minor part of the argument?
Did you guys see Jair shaking his head as he walked off the field? That was a look of dejection. Jair, it’s time to go into the dugout and grab a bat and start beating holy sheot outta your mates.
What are the odds that Francoeur will get the “hat trick” in strikeouts tonight?
how does that ole’ saying go…
as a player you are an extension of your manager? something like that.
You’re fooling NOBODY but yourself. Keep telling yourself that you’re the only “true fan” on the blog.”
Co-Sign Bro, We’ve blogged on this site for the last 4 years and for the last three years “They’re Still Sh!tty”
Why not play Sweet Caroline too….just to make them feel at home?
June 26th, 20099:08 pm
Marlins now tied with the Rays. Philly might be in second place by the end of tonight.
With the way the marlins playing better than philly right now it’s not good news for the braves if they want to stay only 4 games back.
Jair doesnt ever give up multiple earned runs. Last game he got charged with some bogus earned runs, and this game he gets charged with another bogus earned run. What bull crap!!!!
What year was it when Javy Lopez hit .340 with 40 something homers and we had Sheff and Chipper in their primes? I think we had JD Drew, too. Can you imagine how far in first place we’d be with that team?
Feel bad for JJ. Lowe had a piss poor performance last night but there have been so many more performances by him and our staff that have just been wasted by this offense which is totally inept more times than not. I tune in everyday trying to see what new ways we can invent not to score. Bobby needs to call out some of these veterans like Anderson and Chipper if he’s going to do the same thing to Escobar and blame it on lackadaisical play. If he’s doing it he’s only following his “leaders”.
June 26th, 20099:09 pm
“The Red Sox Didn’t Manufacture Shyt!!! Our AAA defense Allowed that Shyt To Happen!!!” Tomahawkin
Actually, our AAA defense (and the balk) SET UP the possibility of a run scoring on a grounder to 2B. Drew just did what he needed to do to get the run in.
I can name you about 4 (or guys on our roster that would have either struck out, popped up, or hit the grounder to anybody else but the 2B on that play, failing to get the run in.
Or do you think that if the Braves were given that same exact opportunity, they deliver the RBI?
rob from SC (Yunel Escobar's Muscle)
Garret Anderson doesn’t run, and now with a great AB
the braves beat with rick camp
Loaf is a turd that won’t flush
Philles being no-hit going into the top of the 7th.
June 26th, 20099:10 pm
Groundfog, I think you have the right idea. The Braves aren’t going to do @!#$. It would be nice to just get it over with already.
But the Phillies suck and we still are in it any way you look at it.
Going back to last year, we’ve won 6 of 9 against them. Of course those were all in Philly. We’re good enough in theory to beat them when they come down here but will we? No clue.
Steve from OH
With a runner on 3rd and no outs? Yes, yes I daresay that run would’ve scored.
I know what you mean. It’s like this team is on life support with no hope of recovery and no one will pull the plug.
Why did they even show up tonight? At least Kotch is coming through.
June 26th, 20099:11 pm
GA looks like he’s asleep. Seriously–this “team” needs a new outlook. A new manager. A new identity. The Braves just look like they couldn’t care less.
With a runner on 3rd and no outs? Yes, yes I daresay that run would’ve scored.
The Braves couldn’t score on a homerun
The Braves suck. I went to the game last night for the first time in about 5 years. They looked like a minor league club. It will be a while before I go back. Anderson popped he ball up and loafed and lo and behold Jeter and the center fielder let it fall between them. He barely got a single out of it. Pete Rose would have been standing on second. Again, I will not waste my hard earned dollars on this crap.
ATTENTION Chipper Jones
Until you stop playing like S***, you should quit bashing other players.
Kotchman with half the Braves hits.
Yo Rick Camp, trying to eat here. If and when I decide to stop endlessly blogging.
I’m not sure why my “8″ turned into a smiley face with sunglasses. Perhaps all the Corey Hart references are taking hold. But is was supost to say 4 or 8. I suppose the 8 and the ) together make that little guy? Hmm. Learn something new every day.
I agree Tomahawkin, though. I’m tired of people trying to say that the negative nellies aren’t fans. If I wasn’t a fan, I’d ignore them and move on.
June 26th, 20099:12 pm
Francoeur in the clutch, lol.
Braves would not score a run with a runner on 3rd and no-outs. They wouldn’t. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t continue to put the team in situations with runners on third with less than 2-outs.
Why do we never bunt Frenchy?
we need to clean house. Start with the manager, hitting coach, and the lazy ass LF
June 26th, 20099:13 pm
When did Chipper bash other players?
the braves beat with rick camp
– if this works then N8, you taught me something.
That Last Post was Directed at Chip…
It feels Like a Game On FOX…Chip Slobs on The Red Sox and Joe, Well “Joe Is Being Joe” He won’t call out anyone but Esco and since Esco is on the Bench Joe has been rather quiet as compared to the last 2 nights…
They maybe only 4 out, but does anybody honestly think this team could even win a game in the playoffs? I sure don’t.
I swear to all that is holy, if Jeff Francoeur is still on this team at the end of the season, I will no longer watch the Braves.
Casey Kotchman’s leg has fallen off! – Chip (exaggerate) Carey
I gotta go to work. You guys handle this crap. At least some of us go to work and try to do the job. Can the Braves make that staement?
June 26th, 20099:14 pm
You might be right Steve. But too many times this year, I’ve seen/heard a K or a pop out followed by a GIDP to end the inning.
Oh, whaddya know? A GIPD by Francoeur. These guys just flat out SUCK right now. And I don’t throw that word around to freely, when talking about anything. But it’s hard to not use that word when describing this club.
If the Braves just executed ABC baseball correctly, it would be tied at 2. This has been more of a problem than not having a “big bat”.
Bobby Cox is the ultimate moron. Jair, son, leave the Braves. These bums will never score any runs for you, what a waste of talent.
He called out Anderson and McCann for him not getting better pitches to hit.
woodie, and I don’t blame you sir. Garret IS a disgrace…the man is making $2M and he obviously doesn’t even want to participate at his job.
Chipper going ahead and blow Beckett now and get it over with. I don’t want to hear your ass talk about how well you are going to sleep tonight because Beckett is just so good.
June 26th, 20099:15 pm
Paul Lentz –
The odds were good that Jeff would strike out thrice, but even better that he would ground into an inning ending double play.
I wish Frenchy would just go away forever.
212033, give the boy a gym button, win or lose, all the way ,all is good, welcome to bobby’s world.
It almost to the point where I want the Mets and Phillies to start winning so Frank Wren can see that our team sucks. Frank please get rid of Bobby Cox.
The way Garrett was standing there Dustin Pedroia could have turned around and moonwalked to second base last inning.
June 26th, 20099:16 pm
I gotcah Tomahawkin. Chip is a gusher. How can you not gush over the Sox and Yankees though? ESPN tells us to and after all…. they ARE from the East Coast? What’s not to like?
Say what you want about Frenchy, but at least he busts his butt all the time. He has plenty of faults but lack of hustle is not one of them. More than I can say about some of these guys, particularly our left fielder.
40 something thousand people paid hard earned money to watch major league baseball. Are the Braves keeping up their end of the bargain.
You lifeless sons of b!tches that sit there and make jokes about someone that just died are utterly disgusting. You should be ashamed of yourself. I dont care if you liked the man or didnt like him, you dont talk like that about someone that just died. What if that was your father, or brother, or son and someone said some crap like that about them, how would you feel? You worthless pieces of cow dung. Why dont you go back to the basement where you belong. You disgust me.
June 26th, 20099:17 pm
I “guess” that you can say that Francoeur is hitting “better”. After hitting .229 with 3 doubles and 1 homer in the month of May, Francoeur is hitting .250 with 3 doubles and 2 homers in the month of June so far.
Francoeur hit the homer on Wednesday, however it looks like it will be another 3 weeks before he hits another one.
Not getting to watch the game on TV. Kind of fun keeping track on Gamecast. When there’s a long delay you can guess why it is taking so long to type in results.
Frenchy last at-bat – long delay & easy prediction that he hit into a double play. the rally killer
That would’ve made my evening to see that
June 26th, 20099:18 pm
That was a beautiful throw from Ross
Josh Beckett= Ace
Derek Lowe= Pretender (and a highly overpaid one at that)
Yup, excellent throw. Kots was wayyyy out.
June 26th, 20099:19 pm
Agreed about the Naive fans that were on here calling us Negative earlier in the season when we lost games to the garbage teams like the Nats and Pittsburgh because of our pisspoor Awfense…Where Are Those Fans now…? I know Know You remember the large number of fans that were on here after we won the first 2 games in Philly…I’d Sure Love to see their candy asses on here…
The pitchers are going to start asking to be traded soon unless Wren puts a MAJOR LEAGUE team behind them and in the batter’s box. Enough is enough.
No matter what the circumstances – Cox is an IDIOT if he takes out JJ for a pitch hitter.
Well, regardless Cox is an idiot
I’ve been sitting here seething for the last 10 minutes at the m*****f****r in left field…but now I’m pissed at Bobby. How in hell can a true baseball man not pull that SOB in the middle of the inning? Get him the hell off this damn team…get him the hell out of my town…get him the hell out of my life. I’d shoot the sonofabitch myself if it wasn’t against the law. If you don’t see what everybody in baseball sees, Bobby, then you ain’t the man I’ve been thinking you were.
June 26th, 20099:20 pm
Good point about Francoeur. He does work hard. Anderson on the other hand. I hate that guy.
People wonder why the Braves have only won one World Series.This game is an example of Braves baseball under Bobby Cox.They have lost more 1 run games than any team I can think of.Bobby doesn’t know how to manage close games.It’s been said by many managers,”if you stay close to Cox,he will give you thje game”.Players have come and gone and players are still being blamed for his shortcomings.It really puzzles me that MANAGEMENT allows one man so much leverage.He’s allowing this Team to drown because he will not admit defeat.It pains me to see a once proud franchise become a third rate franchise.All because one man is so wellthought of.This TEAM needs a change and I don’t mean players.The Braves look bad and are playing worse.Why is Management standing silent.If this were the Dawgs or Techies,you would hear a howl that would wake the dead.And thats the way the Braves are playing,like a dead man.I guess a team reflects it’s manager.I feel sorry for people that really love The Braves.Please,Mr.Wren ,hear our plea,feel our pain.Let Bobby GO.
All NL teams are still trailing.
Coach ( 2010 or Bust)
June 26th, 20099:21 pm
Did I say BOOOOO! Yes, I did!
Would have been more entertaining than what our offense was doing. I would have enjoyed it. Then he should have looked at Garett and said “He-he”.
Garret Anderson should have to buy a ticket. He just stands out there and watches the game.
NO EXCUSE for Anderson to not back up that play. He should have beenmoving when the ball was hit. He is a liability in LF. Bat might be better right now, but damn – is he better than the rest of MLB? Maybe in his mind! Does he feel like a rental player? Not sure anyone would want to rent him.
June 26th, 20099:22 pm
Garret is one of Bobby’s boys.
The Braves need runs…so, you are against pinch hitting for the pitcher in the bottom of the 7th when you are trailing by 2?
3-1 Ross. 3-1!!!
You’re describing yourself.
“If the Braves just executed ABC baseball correctly, it would be tied at 2. This has been more of a problem than not having a “big bat”.”
Good Call, That has been going on for the last 3 years!
We Just need a big bat so that teams will think twice about pitching around Chipper…
June 26th, 20099:23 pm
Yes! Boog Sunday!
This team is 4 years away from even being a 3rd place team.
June 26th, 20099:24 pm
“You lifeless sons of b!tches that sit there and make jokes about someone that just died are utterly disgusting….. you dont talk like that about someone that just died.”
Is it that he just died, or the jokes that bother you? If it’s that he just died, please post an “official” time when it’s OK to go BACK to mocking MJ
“You worthless pieces of cow dung. Why dont you go back to the basement where you belong. You disgust me.”
So it’s OK to call somebody “cow dung” and say that they disgust you, because they’re alive? If the blogger you are referring to would suddenly die, would you feel bad about it? Or would you still feel that way?
“What if that was your father….”
I’d probably have a fear of hights (especially balconies), wear a germ mask, one glove and be pretty kick ass at moonwalking. Not to mention that I would have so much money that I wouldn’t be bloggin’ with you folk? LOL!
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
