Tom, Tom, Tom – we have to talk…— VJ
Apparently, in my absence, events occurred.
Their defense is good but lets be honest, had Mac or Ktochman not been running this game is probably over by now.
Boone Logan will pitch. Lefties coming up.
I’m so sleepy. Please Jeff, put me out of my misery and shock the hell out of me all at once.
June 30th, 200910:00 pm
I even think LaRoche Would’ve beat that out…!
Apparently, in my absence, events occurred. Tom
Well…you have been gone a while.
Now Boobie who is going to pitch the 10th? You mis managed the bull pen again
I know I’ll regret this, but, how?
So Phillies still have Lidge and we used our closers? ok sounds about right lol
Manuel is Bobbylike taking Romero out. It may work out, but I would’ve stay with Romero.
JF…do you feel some pressure? A HR now will prevent us from seeing Utley and Howard in the 10th.
June 30th, 200910:01 pm
10 hits, 5 walks, and 3 errors by the Phills, and the Braves only score 4 runs?!
June 30th, 200910:02 pm
He should have wore the turkey draws
REmember when I said maybe EOF should stay out there for another innig. I got no problem wiht Medlin, but wasting your two best bull pen guys early ain’t that good an idea.
Of course the problem is all teh dudes left on base
Mitchell watch your mouth!
Frenchy no power to RF
I think Escobar should run like a man to first base when he hits the ball weakly. Lord knows he’s getting paid well enough, I’d like to see him earn his pay. Same goes to the other players who don’t run it out to 1st base.
Well, Prado has a chance for the cycle now ~_~
Huge inning coming up here. Meat of their order coming up.
There’s your singles hitter…I don’t Trust our Blow-pen in extra innings against this lineup…
Hearts on fire
Rages deep within
June 30th, 200910:03 pm
It’s not what you think, I promise
Kotchman makes two great plays at first tonight but he’ll probably get rick rolled by jimmy rollins.
Does ESPN ever think about who’s running?
Face it, they’re gonna go with J-Roll.
RG, guaranteed, LOL. Takes one to know one, I’m thinking.
And, I’m also guilty of using “cab” for cabravesfan. Don’t know why, just seemed right.
As the home team it makes sense to use “closers” in the 9th. We will not have a save situation in this game. If we take a lead, we win. The visiting team’s strategy is to hold the closer in reserve until they get a lead. So.. it seems like the Braves have played the right bullpen strategy so far. (Gonzo just didn’t deliver.)
Wayne in Utah
Exactly how did Bobby mismanage the bullpen? He had 3 inning to cover in a close game. We ALL knew that Soriano and Gonzo would get an inninng each, and whether O’F or Moylan got the third inning, was the only real question.
So, exactly what did he do wrong? Better to go with your best, than to lose with your others….
June 30th, 200910:04 pm
yup ballgame now we lose the game after bobby pinch hits with a player whos head and ego is in his arce and blows his best arm he has.. WOW can we say stupid move.. you people tell me cox isnt a moron. heres how he is.. just watch what happens now.. it will be over in an inning or 2 …
At least we don’t have to endure Jeff “blow every possible game i can” Bennett.
This game is just about to be over any minute.
Oh great, Boone Logan.
Tough hitters for Mr. Logan here
I don’t care if lefties are due up this inning for the Phillies, I would have put Moylan in.
the hope of the braves nation rests in your hands mr hanson
June 30th, 200910:05 pm
this is a perfect spot for boone here. ha!
Hearts on fire, Strong desire, Rages deep within (MURPHY RULES)
bgvt- makes sense thanks! just means if Phillesscore first Lidge will beat us- ugh!
Where is DOB? Haven’t seen a post from him in some time.
I’m getting Nervous…! Here we go…!
“wasting your two best bull pen guys early ain’t that good an idea.”
Virginia Ranger, the 8th and 9th innings aren’t early.
Oh goody! Extra innings! Now McCann might get another chance to get out with RISP again another AB!
I just thought you all should know that…
Riaan Spanjer-Furstenburg got another hit tonight.
June 30th, 200910:06 pm
If this were last year, the Phillies would have won it by now.
This time we had every chance to blow it open it and we’re practically begging them to win it.
Tom – I didn’t mean what you might be implying – I’ll tell you in a moment.
any one of these guys can jack one at any time-geez
Steve from OH
June 30th, 200910:07 pm
Niiice. I see my boy Adam Milligan got another multi-hit game as well tonight.
Swing at that baby!
June 30th, 200910:08 pm
That brings Riaan Spanjer-Furstenburg’s hit streak to 7 games.
Hey, once I figured out “cab” was directed at me it was no problem I’ll answer to almost anything
When are the Cards going to change their name to the Albert Pujols Cardinals? Or maybe the St Louis Pujols?
June 30th, 200910:09 pm
It’s not what you think, I promise
LAdy—- I’m thinking Jim and Rob got into a …. reasonably, unfriendly discussion, on the old blog.
Bringing in the Aussie for the DP .. let’s hope he gets it done.
Alright, Moylan coming in. At least if we go down it’s with our last best available pitcher.
Prado, will you have a sex change and marry me?
Come On Petey-Pabb, DP Baby!
Booby Might Get Burned doing the situational thing especially if we beyond the 11th inning
June 30th, 200910:10 pm
Fitting intro for Petey!
If one sided discussions can be unfriendly, then I guess you could say that
Moylan will work.
June 30th, 200910:11 pm
Joe S. Do You Hsve to remind us of game 3 of the season, I still get P’d Thinking about it…
AC/DC playing for the Aussie … very fitting. TNT
Wren hired Michael Vick today. He is in charge of mascots.
Are one sided discussions even discussions?
June 30th, 2009
If the Braves have to play extra innings, whose going to pitch?
Moylan,Medlen….then were in trouble
June 30th, 200910:12 pm
I don’t have a good feeling…
I was just thinking we could conserve the bull pen. Right now we are down to Medlin and Acosta and
kj on the bench. Wouldn’t want to use Ross and aunch one.
Not looking good.
June 30th, 200910:13 pm
Have they announced attendence yet?
Good Stab Hoss!!!!!!!
Some play baby!!
That’s my MAN!
OMG Chipper killllllllllled that play. Woo hoo!
WHAT A PLAY! CHIPPER!
UNREAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hightlight Reel for sure!!!!!!!!!!
That may have been the slowest turned double play I have ever seen…but it works
Apparently I used some “expletive deletives”.
WOW !! what a play..go old man..
Now that is the Chipper I remember!
Chipper is god.
Flash some leather Chipper!
Just when Hoss looks like he’s lost a step at the hot corner, he makes a play like that.
His reactions are still good. Just the range that hurts at times.
Hoss comes thru on D!
Kotchman digging another one out!
CHIPPER!!!!!!!!! WHAT A PLAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Best Defensive Play of the Year By Hoss! Nice, Lets Win This Shyt!!!
June 30th, 200910:14 pm
Nice play, Chipper! But GREAT TURN, PRADO!!!!
Sick turn. Let’s win this now.
Vintage Chipper makes a showing. Where has that glove been
That play put the scare in me big time!!!
Man…I think Chipper needs to start getting to the park earlier to take groundballs…
Helluva play, boys, helluva play.
Give that Aussie his citizenship papers!
June 30th, 200910:15 pm
Wow, game saver. Need to take advantage here.
If a man can’t control his tongue, what can he control?
Why does Chipper look mad there?
Good ball. wouldn’t see the BoSox make that one. Now lets go home Lets go home, Lets go home, and show Boobie was all over the Bullpen plan.
Maybe on a walk off triple by Marteeeen. Not real sure you can have a walk off triple though—interesting thought
Oh goody for him!
We had a spider in our house about an hour ago.
The Kotchmeister Gets A Shout-Out! Good Play on both ends…!
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
