the hopes of the braves nation rest in your hands mr. hanson
July 22nd, 20099:25 pm
wow! gonzo a true competitor is upset that he allowed that run to score that will count against his teammate. it was a weak grounder and just a fluke play and hes still upset….
you have to love that!
Soriano probably told Gonzo to give one up one so he could get a save opportunity. Hopefully the Braves make it not a save situation here.
The Giants made us sweat a little that inning. Time to bring in Soriano for the 9th.
July 22nd, 20099:26 pm
Gonzo didn’t screw that up. He got a Braves killer to ground right to a defender. Just dribbled to 3rd a little too slowly.
Yeah I’m sure that’s it, MFin.
Still lookin’ good on bettin’ the under.
JJ now 4th in ERA.
Heyward with another double, his 8th since being called up to Mississippi….Now hitting .404
Rob from SC

why spend 12 million for a 1B, when Freeman is ready
Gonzo gave up an infield hit to a still speedy Winn.
Winning the game is all that counts. “Looking good” is b.s., just win!
RHR – I heard him

BAD STREET, ATLANTA, GA!!!!
Steve from OH
Are you starting to change your mind about Heyward’s arrival time?
Freeman is 19 I don’t think he is quite ready yet, Big difference between where he is and the Big Show!
Would be good if STL could get a dang win against the ’stros tonight and start a hot streak going into and including this weekend’s play.
well at least the Braves aren’t the only ones capable of losing series to the Nats
Mets go down 3-1, lose the series (after scoring 6 the first game they only score 2 in the final 2 games)
Steve from OH
Right now? Lordy…
July 22nd, 20099:29 pm
At least Gonzo only let 1 inherited runner score. I suppose that is the most we could expect from this bullpen.
Ah man…why can’t McCann hit lefties anymore?
At least it wasn’t a K.
Two walks for Garrett in one game?
I mean Freeman will be ready by the All star break, so why waste money on Konerko.
how about a little insurance here
July 22nd, 20099:30 pm
Is it safe to say you’ll be interviewing Escobar tonight? Maybe gettin’ a “fist bump” or two?
Yyyeaah…I know what those are…
Mets only scored 1 in their last 2 games.
Brian already did his part today. Got to Lincecum early … and then called a great game for JJ. Plus, in that AB — one of those curveballs had to be ball. They couldn’t both be strikes.
ok maybe not
Marc in FL
July 22nd, 20099:31 pm
I am now Marc from FL to coencide with Rob from SC and Steve from OH.
Hey DOB what is MFIKY’s intro song?
freeman won’t be ready for at least two years.just enough time to let Konerko mash for a little while.
Marc from FL
Starting this post :/
Wow Escobar should have been safe on that one…apparently he didn’t bother to run that one out…
July 22nd, 20099:32 pm
San Fran announcers just said “Escobar clearly not running on that play.”
What makes any of you think the Whitesox would give up Konerko without getting Freeman back in return?
Here comes “the scowl”…it is ova!
freeman won’t be ready for at least two years
From today? Dunno about that one…
At least muts trolls are gone until next spring……….. or they might be here if we miss the playoff in the last week of the season.
MFIKY awaits in a dark alley.
The Bird and Indian
Roja: The back end of Soriano and Gonzo has actually been great this year.
If we had Prince Fielder we’d score a few more runs, but it would kill our sparkling defense at first…
My vote goes defense.
July 22nd, 20099:33 pm
Nevemind, I found it. Fuego. Very appropriate.
Let’s go Rafy!!!!
Besides Freeman only has 7 hr this year in the minors
Thank you Panda.
That’s a very nice play there Hoss.
Good work. Those win baseball games.
Rob from SC: Freeman is not Heyward-ready for 2010. You’ll see Freeman in 2011 more likely, sometime in the mid-season if he’s hot in Gwinnett. We have Kotchman through 2011.
in 308 ab
July 22nd, 20099:34 pm
Nice play by Chipper Jones.
Great play Chipper…bout time!!!
Panda tried to bunt…..but it failed
It’s amazing that JJ is only 23. What a trade we made for him. Bird and Indian
What’s this we crap Indian?
1 pitch, 1 out makes me a Happy Panda.
Oh yeah. ‘S cool. I’m not gonna start in on the, “OMGosh?? What’s wrong with my mann??” stuff…heck, I wasn’t expecting him to cream the Freak, anyway. It’s not like it was some “nobody” on the mound. He drove in a run, and like you said, called a great game.
(And yeah, couple of bad calls on the strikes, but what’d we expect? )
Plus we’re winning, so what’s to complain about?
July 22nd, 20099:35 pm
The WhiteSox need relievers, not 1basemen.
2 easy ones.
Man, Molina might be slower than Johnny Estrada. I didn’t think that was humanly possible.
July 22nd, 20099:36 pm
This guy pitching…..he’s good.
freeman’s numbers suggest mid-2011 at the earliest
RHR – her fantasy is a battle for her – let her have her fantasies.
“why spend 12 million for a 1B, when Freeman is ready”
In spring training, 2011?
July 22nd, 20099:37 pm
F. Wren: I’m sorry Frank. I give you all the credit buddy.
McFann, nice to see you stand by your mann….
Wow. That was a very nice AB.
Alright, get the next one.
I said it last week, I’ll say it again, we need to get to the WS so people can see how ridiculous Soriano really is. Bah, lucky hit there, that’s what we call “slapping”.
I might be becoming a bear………..I smell october and it is 2.5 months away.
Where is Jeff?
Damn. Not good.
July 22nd, 20099:38 pm
DOB- i’m hearing the white rabbits are coming here 8/20. just fyi
That wasn’t very graceful.
Come on, Ryan. Geez.
And come on crowd — how about getting loud?? This is sort of an important game.
AHHHHH….making this more interesting than it needs to be.
Oh boy…good thing we let him take 2nd base and score an easy run…hate giving away bases…
that’s why I don’t like the no-throw attempt on the taking of 2nd base
Damn Church. Had a shot but at least you knocked it down in front of you. Win and I’ll take it, baby.
MFIKY will deal with you later, Church boy.
Not trying to be snide but Steve from Oh, that would be exactly 2 years
July 22nd, 20099:39 pm
With a 3-run lead, you GIVE up the base.
i think i just vomited in my mouth after watching that play
frenchy would had it
its a moment of silence for mr. lincecum.
Freeman will be here next year
Finish The Drill
the 2-2 pitch….
July 22nd, 20099:40 pm
Isn’t it funny how since the Frenchy trade we have taken off and the Mutts have gone entirely into the tank. Isn’t it funny that everyone was mad at Wren about Smoltz… well half a season gone and now a 1-3 record with a 6 or 7 era.. Isn’t it funny how everyone bashed Wren about Glavine… and now Hanson is undefeated and was clearly the right choice… In a nutshell winning baseball is fun to watch…
Yep that was a gold glove play if I’ve ever seen one
Umm No , Rob no he won’t
No way we beat Lincecum – or, maybe we do?
ballgame!! thats nasty!
Good win! This is an excellent day indeed!!!
YEAH! Woop woop Sori!
Never any drama
Oh Snap Soriano!!!!
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
