Babe Prado! Will we ever hear the end of it now? (Bobby, are you watching this?)
Prado getting it done tonight.
Wow, Rollins looks fugly tonight.
Well, getting one right back is important but good god can we do that with runners on base!
So Far Martin Is The Only One Who Has showed Up Tonight on offense!
Ha! You too Jimmy!!
Dear Bobby Cox and Kelly Johnson Fans:
SUCK ON THAT!
Not that I’ve seen, RG. LOL
Prado just said anything you can do. Way to keep track with one of the 2nd basemen in the game.
Rob from SC
I will be nice to Schafer. I just want him to be the type of player you and I want him to become.
Steve from OH
this could give you something intelligent to talk about on here besides trading Javier Vazquez for Mike Cameron.
When have I suggested this? Was I drunk? Is Prado proving valuable to the team right now? Are you completely obsessed with OBP at the expense of better metrics?
Answers are no, no, yes, yes.
June 30th, 20098:36 pm
Prado is my second favorite Brave behind Gregor.
God, I keep wanting to call him Omar.
How bout a homerun Brian McCann?
Well…..at least it wasn’t a pop out.
Was Martin 1 of the 3 guys in the lineup tonight with a good OBP?
YES, he was.
the hope of the braves nation rests in your hands mr hanson
our bench players are better than our starters!
That homer by Prado was one more than Kelly’s hit in 101 at-bats in his past 28 games.
Smoltz may get #1 in Charm City tonight. Up 9-1
June 30th, 20098:37 pm
Are you kidding me?
What does he have to do to get a hit.
What, 2 aren’t enough? Nolie, RSF, and now a Russian man-bride?
Does Jayson Werth always try to make everything look more complicated than it is?
A little late but Lowe gets an “ass”ist for that putout!
One of these line shots to right is gonna burn Werth!
Here we go about to blow another big inning.
June 30th, 20098:38 pm
Just making sure you are ok!
Can We Take Advantage of the opposing team making errors for Once, Cheese=Whiz!
Steve, go to atlantabraves.com click sortable stats and click OBP. That should help you learn which players should be in the lineup
Perhaps you should apologize to Braveheart and let him actually teach you something about baseball?
Mitchell How bout a homerun Brian McCann?
Are you daft?
Me and my jerkish-nutbag of a self had to go on and on for TWO DAYS how good he was against this pitcher…
It’s Your Birthday!
Whatever Jason Werth does it’s because he’s an alien.
Look at him.
Go Loafy, it’s your birthday, we’re gonna party like it’s your birthday.
Get rid of Kelly Johnson and play Prado every day until his OBP gets worse than Kelly’s.
A Braves fan who wants our team to win
There We Go Loaf! Station 2 Station Again, Let’s Go!
June 30th, 20098:39 pm
Happy Birthday GA!
Rob in SC–
Thanks…but I’m not, really…
Smoltz – one run, three hits through four tonight. Tarp out on the field now.
Attaboy, Prado. Looks like Kelly will be picking splinters out of his backside for a while.
“our bench players are better than our starters”
They do represent all our offense tonight, but i’d still rather see this lineup with Yunel and Nate. I think we only got to see that lineup with Prado 2nd and Yunel 5th once before he got hurt. It was productive.
How about that semi-annual three dinger so I can go to bed
June 30th, 20098:40 pm
Blanton is a cheater!!!
“What’s that $hit on your cap?”
“Crisco, Bartol, Vagisil”
Loaf can still hit
McCann has been to aggresive at the plate. Him and Chipper are trying to do to much every AB. Chip just needs to hit like last year i’ll take 2 or 3 singles a night.
JF may have a chance for a big hit. I hope he can keep the momentum.
Come on Frenchy!!!
Can Francoeur hit with RISP
Have the Braves hit a granny this year?
Jeff, this is the at-bat of the year.
What’re you gonna do?
“If the umpire is watching me close, I just stick some jalepeno up my nose.”
You’ve had a good night so far…
Can you come through when it matters… when (gulp) the bases are loaded?
June 30th, 20098:41 pm
Come On Francine…! I Smell A DP he Will hit for the homer and get burned…
Frenchy you better at least get one in.
OK frenchy here you go time to blow game wide open!!!!!!
Francoeur’s going yard here
Alright undie boy…need another good AB. Or a deep fly out at least
Good place for Frenchie to keep it up.
Lets GO Jeff!
If the Frency goes yard, will he drop trou for his curtain call
Come on, Frenchy. Shut all these bloggers up right here!
Whatever, it works.
At least it was no DP
Well, this will show you exactly how well Frenchy’s doing…
Not the best, but he gets an RBI!
Way to be productive Frenchy.
He tried to kill the rally.
pretty weak but i’ll take it
he does his job…not pretty but it worked
Not what I wanted, but I’ll take it….
That’s about right.
Please shut up if you are going to be an a-hole. Also, I will definitely have no respect for you if you cannot *at the least* agree that if we want the Braves to start winning again Bobby Cox should either retire or be fired if he chooses not to.
A real fan
Could have been a lot worse I suppose.
He is an idiot though. A major idiot.
Well I guess that’s better than nothing.
June 30th, 20098:42 pm
R U Serious! At least we got 1…
Our RF Singles Hitter Needs To go To Victoria’s Secret
Why swing, you can’t drive that pitch
A run’s a run…
Not exactly what I had in mind Jeff, but we got a run out of it.
What’s Lowe’s pitch count? Would you pinch hit here?
I’d rather have Lowe hitting than Diory anyway.
phew!!!! thought it might have been a double play
That was qute a way to get the lead. Clutch
I want a pinch hitter right here.
Go for the win. The Phillies did it last year against us.
Not to be though, huh?
“You put snot on the ball?”
Jared and Steve are in love.
June 30th, 20098:43 pm
Wow…Hernandez has been walked twice now.
He shoulda wore the lucky underoos
At least we got the lead!
We gotta trade Lowe asap.
holy smokes Diory is a beast his OBP is gonna go way up!!! lmao
Have a drink dude. How has Bobby cost the Braves tonight?
Our AWFense Blows…! It should be at least 4-2
Why wasn’t Lowe told to take a strike?
June 30th, 20098:44 pm
To those that have said Prado’s not an every day player, I’m not sure who you’re watching.
Everybody is getting tired of your drivel.
If you are jamming up Steve, you fail to realize you are messing with one of the most respected folks on the blog. Who are you anyway?
Typical scoring inning for the Braves….8 batters to the plate, score twice.
I lead the parade for Bobby Cox to be fired as well as for Terry Pendleton. I also understand that John Schuerholz left us in a tough spot, and Liberty Media could care less if we win. We lack Major League talent in many area’s. I would fire Bobby Cox, but also build for the future.
Not to seem funny here but maybe KJ needs to go see a psychologist or something. He obviously has the tools to succeed at this level, so I have to think its more mental than physical. I don’t know, but didn’t John Smoltz do that? Regardless I hope they continue to play Prado. We can’t afford to keep waiting to see if and when he’ll break out.
JF was not exactly as patient as I was hoping.
i prolly would have brought Diaz to pinch hit he is beast with bases loaded and his pinch hitting numbers are very impressive. Lets just hope Lowe gets us 2 more scoreless innings.
Let ‘em off the hook.
Unbelievable. I didn’t believe DL was going to get a hit but I’m still in disbelief.
Jeff fails yet again. He can’t play this game. We’ve seen enough to know that it doesn’t get any better than that.
A double then a single and then he swings at the first pitch.
Why why why?
June 30th, 20098:45 pm
You saw who was batting right? (sarcasm)
Bases loaded? Jeff went up there determined to swing at the first thing within a foot of the plate.
crimedog, I remember you from the other night, you seemed to suck too. you were defending bobby last time or was it something else we were arguing about?
9 LOB through 5 inninings.
The problem with playing Prado everyday, is that once Bobby Cox decides somebody is a role player he doesn’t change his mind.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
