Prado makes that play. KJ misses it and Frenchy pulls a LOAF!
Error waiting to happen, I’ll say it again.
Kelly Johnson is not a very good baseball player.
Really Joe? Kelly would have ran that down before Jeff?
Glavine was a soft-tosser and Smoltz a freak of nature who played thru a lot of pain
Give Cox a hard throwing youngster vulnerable to injury/misuse, and Cox will accomplish it –
I have faith that Donk can mishandle ANY player, ANY situation
here we go blow it for Tommy Hanson ….
June 28th, 20093:51 pm
oh my god, now they are teaming up to be as terrible as possible
What happened to brent lillibridge or whatever his name is, I know Bobby would love to see him at short! lol.
Why would you blame that on Jeff, Joe and Boog?
I swear to GOD KELLY JOHNSON
Or Kelly. Take him out! Geez
Ay-yi-yi. KJ is killing us!!
get Kelly out of there
pull him out the game
another web gem by KJ
Why does this SH*T always happen
Red Sox fans started a “let’s go red sox” chant and were drowned out by boos from Braves fans
Then Kelly makes that error and gives them something to really boo…
KJ buckles again!
Kelly Johnson ladies and gentlemen!
Here Is The Blow-Up Inning
Thanks KJ and Francine…Our Defense Sucks!!!
He absolutely sucks…that ball wasn’t even hit hard
Lookin’ good KJ. Keep it up son!
now ellsbury steals 2nd..
Did he just make two errors in consecutive pitches?
What the hell. Not the pitchers fault!
June 28th, 20093:52 pm
now moylan blows it..
SLOPPY. FLATFOOTED. POKEY. HORSESH!T.
Anybody else have any other words to describe out defensive hustle (or lack thereof)??
If Cox doesn’t pull him out after that, he’s NEVER going to. Again. Escobar is the whipping boy, while the golden boy just keeps giving Wren reasons to not only trade him, but take him out back and beat his ass. Never mind that KJ should have gotten to that ball, in the first place.
Oh. Whaddya know? A KJ error moving to his right.
Robert. Give me back my bowl of sad. Time for binge!
KJ with a head up (his behind) play
Kelly Johnson needs to buy a Ducati and a bottle of Jack Daniels. Cmon Kelly your rich…
KJ just gave this game to the Sawx.
Well, gotta say that Kelly Johnson is able to take a win outta the pocket of Hanson. I expected something like this would happen. Sucks when you wait for the wheels to fall off the wagon.
Chico’s Bail Bonds should be the next ad they put up on the OF wall.
Comical, looks like the Braves are giving this game away on purpose. GO, KJ gO Francouer. Let’s go RED SOX CLAP, CLAP, CLAP, CLAP,CLAP.
This team reaks. This crap to watch. Our 2 fall guys giving us some new material.
Two mental errors for Jeff. Result- no action. Where is Yunel? Couldn’t even get this typed before KJ boots easy ball again. Result- pull the pitcher. Where is Yunel? Oh yeah, he is hurt. Something is wrong here.

it doesnt get much worse than kj, the guy will never see the majors again after this season.

So who is Jman? Fill me in on something I havent seen in the past 14 years.
Nick Green 3-run homer over right field porch for the go-ahead run?
At a certain point somebody like Kelly Johnson isn’t good enough to play at this level.
I don’t care what he’s done in the past, he is not a professional baseball player.
This is another Dennis Green moment.
THEY ARE WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE, AND WE LETEMOFFTHEHOOK!!!
June 28th, 20093:54 pm
KELLY FRANCINE does nothing right, not on the bases, not in the field, not at the plate, how much longer does thid HAVE to go on?
I’ll say it again. I will never understand why Francoeur gets the start over Diaz.
those 2 players are the reason the braves are who they are, if we had a better RF and 2ND BASE we would be a lot better, they are 2 hughe holes in our line up.
The two guys we need to get rid of do there circus act. Francouer and Johnson. What a joke the both of them are.
RIGHT THERE is why Bobby should be replaced. Jeffy loafs to get the ball and he’s still in the game. The old Bobby Cox would have pulled him. No consequence – No improvement
Betcha Moylan looks like sheot
You’d hope for a double play ball but that might be the worst possible scenario.
they scored that first one a hit…of course the second was an E…but that first one…the only difference in that and the one Yunel had Thursday night was that Yunel got up and threw it…bad throw…but should’ve been scored a hit Thursday

Once again we give extra bases and extra outs in a tight game!
Our defense is the only reason I have doubts about winning the division. When teams go on a big winning streak, they usually have solid defense as a big reason. I don’t think this team can put together more than a game or two in a row of even average fielding.
June 28th, 20093:55 pm
After those two bonehead plays/error’s from Francour and Jounson,Cox should be fired today for not yanking both of their butts out of the lineup and putting their a**’* on the bench until they can be shipped toMississippi tomorrow morning.
Furcal, Giles, Chipper (rookie in 95), LaRoche, McCann… Want more?
No one is making excuses for him, but it does seem to be an uneven standard applied to the players.
Yes there is a double standard which is what I think you were trying to say. How else do you explain Frenchie and KJ still playing and never talked down in public by the so-called Best Manager ever.
Nice DP, good job. Get’s some more runs!
Attaboy Petey-Pabb Nice DP!!!
Ok, KJ. We’re cool…for now.
Thank God. I still hate you JF and KJ!
Fist pump like a d***** bag?
dodged a bullet there
kelly is the best!!!!!!!! lol
Hey. That KJ is pretty damn good at 2B (eyes rolling).
Nice pitch Moylan.
thank you Kelly for going 1 for 3 atleast
WOW ….. kelly fields a balll and does it himself.
Moylan induces the DP.
The Red Sox are lookin’ like us today.
Nice try Kelly. You play for the Braves remember?
Go home to your hot wife.
OMG, redemption for KJ. All man I could cry. I know that brought a tear to Joe Simpsons eyes.
June 28th, 20093:56 pm
I can say with all asurances, that had that been a Braves’ player running on the Varitek play, thay woul have stopped at 1B. Satisfied with just getting on base.
These two batters sum up a lot of the Braves issues.
Steve from OH
Will the cashier pay me, or do I get some money straight from your wallet?
Well damn! I’m so friggin surprised. But props go out to Moylan.
Three major F-ups today and absolutely no consequence – I am so frustrated with COX. Not Kelly or Franceour – They cannot take the pressure. Cox has to identify his problems and address them, even if it’s just a benching for failure to play.
lets see if Coxcks pulls either one of his favorite palefaces, the way he yanks the color out of the lineup. I seriously doubt it.
US 2-1 over Brazil 1/2 way through the 2nd half
June 28th, 20093:57 pm
KJ got a gift. Looks like God looks out for drunks, fools, children and overmatched second basemen.
Donk!! Managing the bullpen! Attaboy! See, it aint riocket science
Schafer is 2-3 with a SB today BTW.
“Those guys” owe moylan for that one, i thought this games was over.
I think that inserting Ryan Langerhans and Pete Orr would be an improvement to this line-up.
Meanwhile, there’s “Gold Glove” defense by our 7th and 8th place hitters in our line-up (despite Kelly hitting 2nd today). Kelly should have caught that ball……..and Francoeur’s lack of “initial” hustle on getting the ball after it got by Kelly…….just goes to show that I was right about Francoeur.
I pointed out Francoeur’s lack of good instincts about 4 weeks ago during the 15 inning Pirates game where he initially “loafed” home on that ball hit by Ross before high tailing it home after he saw that the short stop got to the ball. He scored “only” because the throw was off target. Many of you said that “hey, we won, what does it matter”. I said that a play like that could come back to cost us a game later on if Francoeur’s bad judgment isnt addressed.
Well, guess what. Not only does Francoeur get nailed on a bad base running play earlier…..he “loafs” to a ball that should have kept a “slow running” Jason Varitek on first base.
And now we see another error by Kelly.
WOW. Moylan gets the double play. Kelly and Francoeur both get bailed out on that one. Still, it should not take away from both of their “boneheaded” plays.
RJB in DC
At least give KJ credit–didn’t let the error get inside his head the next play.
Those plays were bad and then did you see TBS show the play where Loaf didn’t even move on a ball that got by the SS in a prior game. Wow! Make it hard sometimes to cheer for these guys.
Then they get out of the inning and I am happy again.
And the best news is he cant pitch Bennett
Who cares about who was the best player since 95? It’s all about right now and right now, only Chipper and McCann are better every day players.
Get that mess out of here braveshater… idiot..
Heyward again! I can’t wait till he’s ready whenever it may be.
June 28th, 20093:58 pm
nice news on Schafer…thanks
June 28th, 2009
thank you Kelly for going 1 for 3 atleast
hmmm KJ reached by fielder’s choice. He couldn’t even sac Blanco to 2B.
June 28th, 20093:59 pm
Jerry Holcombe was betting Moylan would look like sheot.
J-Dogg, you need to get your head checked.
He got a double play ball even Kelly couldn’t f*** up.
June 28th, 20094:00 pm
Another run wouldn’t really hurt.
June 28th, 20094:01 pm
Diaz should be the everyday RF…
Are u kidding me. Adam Laroche, Brian Giles, or was it marcus, who cares he sucks, traded for who? We dont even know, and replaced by who, KJ-yeah he’s a winner alright. Chipper and Mcann maybe, and Yunel and furcal cancel one another out, plus Yunel isnt a drunk who chugged his way out of town. Yunel is the best player on the team period. I dont care if u hate him or love him, he’s the best player.
Brad Lidge in the game for the Phillies. 5-4 bottom of the ninth…..on the first pitch, the slow running 9th place hitting catcher for the Blue Jays bunts down the 3rd base line to get a base hit.
Come on Jays…..punish Lidge.
June 28th, 20094:02 pm
Heyward did something today??
June 28th, 20094:03 pm
Scorer reversed call on Francoeur’s grounder to Green in fourth — it’s now been ruled a hit
Mcann is all offense, he couldnt throw out a little leaguer. And chippers best days are behind him, lets just hope the braves have a plan for next year at 3rd base.
