Regarding your question about fake sugar in Coke Zero. Yes it is fake. It won’t hurt you…probably. :)

Nate, I get it. Your the kid that every blog has that is right up the @ss of the stat guy (Steve). I could give two sh*ts about your “insights”. Ignore my post if you have a problem with what I have to say.

I saw that the Mets had scored a run in their game and before looking at the boxscore I thought, I betcha Frenchy knocked that run in, and sure enough he did. Watch out Pujols, here comes Frenchy!

Two very good scores so far…

ATL 1 – FLA 0

Jeff Bennett started in AAA tonight and allowed 3 earned runs in 1 inning of work. Budster replaced him and threw 1 scoreless inning. For those who are concerned, I don’t think we will see Bennett in ATL until after rosters expand on 9/1.

Braveheart………….I’ve seen most of his at-bats with the Mets as well. Exactly same swing, exact same approach. He swings at everything, has yet to draw a walk. He’s just gotten some lucky bloops to fall, and some hangers to hit.

As far as blaming Terry Pendleton, well how do you explain our offense playing so well right now? Look at how Prado has developed as a hitter. Escobar and McCann has both steadily improved in the past several of years.

Maybe the problem wasnt TP but Jeff Francoeur.

That’s the thing with Martin. It seems like his “slumps” last for about 15 AB or so, then he turns it around again.

That was a nice ab.

Paul Lentz, Can you see all MLB games as part of the package you purchased from your satellite provider? Do cable companies offer something similar? We have comcast here in ATL but I have never researched the issue. I’m lucky that most Braves games were still on TBS during my 4 years of exile in New York in the mid-1990s. However, I had to go to a sports bar to catch the Falcons games.

Yeah i’m watching gameday and they are way outside the zone….

Per Gameday, not a dang one of those pitches to BMac hit the strikezone, except the one he fouled off.

if i wasn’t so lazy, i would do some research on how many hits and walks we have given up to opposing pitchers…man, it seems to happen a lot…

THAT was what you call a “turrible” 2-strike pitch…(Or at least Barkley would)

Great job by Anderson cutting that ball off.

Shamus Thacker

RHR: At least it would look better on tv, right Shamus? Until someone hits one out. Maybe they could buy some cardboard cutout people.

Or they could have McFann put together a crew and paint folks on the curtains. When the wind blew it’d look like they were doing the wave.

Haha!

Carl wow, not one of those pitches to McCann was in the strike zone, according to gameday

They weren’t strikes according to anybody except that crazy umpire…

Almost 250 men on base in front of you and you’ve only driven in 38 of them? That isn’t right, is it? :cry:

What the … Looked like Garret was expecting McLouth to come from CF to get that, because he slowed down and wasn’t raising his arms like he’d lost it in the lights or anything….

Hey McFann didn’t you say this guy was the one Chipper and Mac had so much success against? I know chipper has because I saw his numbers on beat the streak today, don’t remember Mac’s though..

Is it just me, or does G. Anderson always expect McLouth to get the ball on anything hit in between them? He just appears to be lazy out there.

Is it too much to ask for Loaf to at least LOOK for the ball?

David O'Brien

I could be wrong but doesn’t Loaf have to call out to McLouth there that he can’t see the fu*** baseball? I didn’t even see his moth move. McLouth has the speed to get over and make that catch.

Jake W.

July 28th, 2009

Well when you put the ball in play crazy things can happen. Our 3 and 4 hitters didn’t do that. They struck out, but to be fair to Mac that wasn’t a strike that was called on him.

MurphyRules

DOB, when it comes to Anderson, do Braves officials just take the good (hitting) with the terrible (defense) and go on about their lives. You have to admit, some of his misplays are borderline unprofessional.

Thanks! Can’t wait to send it to you…I had a ton of free time today, so I got a lot done.

RHR

Yeah, I had to open my big fat mouth again…BMac’s had good numbers against Ricky in his career–7-19 with 2 doubles, 2 homers, and 7 RBI against him before this season.

But, in keeping with this year’s tradition, I say he’s done good against a pitcher, and what does he do? I know the night is still young, but…

On the video board thing here at lovely Land Shark Stadium, they have a picture of the General Lee (Dukes of Hazard) airborne in some backwoods chase as the backdrop for the Braves’ pictures. Looks particularly ridiculous when, say, Garret, the black dude from L.A., or Escobar (or any other Latin player, for that matter) is hitting.

Fred…………I pay for the MLB Extra Innings package on Direct TV. I know that Direct TV has the exclusive rights to The NFL Ticket (as a Dallas fan, I have no choice but to subscribe, since the sorry a$$ 49ers and Raiders are shown on t.v.). But I’m not sure about Direct TV having the exclusive rights to the MLB package.

Jeremy’s Parents, I’m sure your son is a wonderful young man, however, he was suppose to be a future batting champion(LOL), instead he has morphed into a powerless, non-aggressive, base runner stranding Punch and Judy hitter. Couple that with the FACT he is arguably the worst corner outfielder in the game–probably by acclamation–Well, I would just implore you to get him to reconsider going to Clemson and pursuing his education. I’m sure you know there is ABSOLUTELY no market for his services and he and Uggla combined MIGHT bring back a marginal 8th inning set-up guy and a prospect in the 20-30 range.

Fine young man–YES!! Productive Major Leaguer EVER–NO!!
