I have a feeling that there will be several moves by the Braves on Tuesday. Omar Infante should be about ready. Boone Logan is useless on this team so Buddy Carlyle can be called up for long relief to allow Medlen to pitch in more games. Not to mention the slugging RF in Mississippi.
Chop It Up All-Stars
Maybe this is where Mota gets drilled with a ball!!
Curt Schilling – the best crapshoot in modern play-off history.
Eric In Albany N.Y.
hey dont we light mota up?
come on, let it drop
Damn Either why does he do everything well against us
August 9th, 20091:13 am
Mota is still juicing
Someone point Prince in the direction of the mound…
Damn, great catch. Diaz robbed of a double. They can go get it in CF and RF….
Just saw scrawny ol’ Larry King getting up from his prime seats not far behind home plate. Scott Boras is in front row down there, as usual (late arriving, after going to Angels game earlier).
Jon Lovitz was here last night. Bowman saw Hal Linden (Barney Miller) before the game.
And the scenery down in those seats … uh, let me get back to watching the game.
Roachy can’t touch 95+.
Pop one out of the park Rochie
Either reminds me of McLouth a couple of years ago when we played the Pirates. He seems to be in the middle of everything going on. Dude is everywhere.
Steve from OH
And one more thing is I’d want a good return on him, because I think he’ll be a valuable starter someday. Not a top-of-the-rotation type, but a solid 3-4 guy. I’ve said that before, but I really like pitchers with (what I perceive to be) plus changeups.
jeffrey d — Yeah, but the way McCann has been scuffling lately, it’s not a given.
Terry Pendleton: please tell your batters to take some pitches and make the pitchers work. Please!
joe for 3
Maybe you should move to a country without separate timezones. No more ouchies for you that way.
This is the Dodgers 5th pitcher….we have used only 2 so far. So, the longer this goes, the better shape we are in…one would think. Though, I would like to win it now and go to bed.
argh…roachy is due
August 9th, 20091:14 am
Wake up Roachie, you need to look like you know where you are.
Mets lose to the Padres. Braves need to win this one.
N8………uh, the Braves have not scored very many runs with Kawakami on the mound. Why dont you check and see how many runs per game the Braves have scored for him? If Tim Hudson had pitched a shutout tonight, the game would STILL be going to extra innings.
Cole Hamels has an ERA approaching 5. Yet he doesnt have a losing record. Do you know why? Because the Phillies score a SH1T LOAD OF RUNS for him.
Rob from SC
He’s totally still on the roids. I bet he’d even admit it if you asked him.
Rob from SC,
If Heyward does get called up, at least we won’t have to read about it from you on every fraking blog about how he SHOULD be called up.
So it will be a good thing either way!
August 9th, 20091:15 am
How is Larry King still awake now? And I realize it’s only a quarter after 10 on the West Coast.
DOB, pretty sure i saw Vanessa Marcil get a prime seat behind home plate after the second inning. Confirm this with pictures.
Put Me In Coach
Love how Roachy has gotten better at working the count!
August 9th, 20091:16 am
I just want the best 25 man roster we can have.
Fight on, Roachy.
Jeseus, he fouls a ball off his foot and he doesn’t even notice it. He must be on some heavy duty drugs.
August 9th, 20091:17 am
Good eye, sir.
Way to work it Rochey
Nate from NCState
Good AB by LaRoche. Let’s knock him in.
Damn Homer, what do you have against DOB?
Come on McCann
10-pitches, resulting in a walk….nice AB Adam.
Yep…definitely better, much better
SCORE THE G/D BASE RUNNER!
Great at-bat Roachie!!
lets go MAC!
Nice AB LaRoche
And this is why you held off on Mac earlier. Bobby doin’ work.
August 9th, 20091:18 am
I can tell you one thing.
The Dodgers don’t want to see us in October.
PH HR…come on
sorry , but i’m not excited if heyward gets called up
i don’t want him to be next schafer
Alright McFann is fast asleep, you can get a hold of one here, Heap.
cabraves might just run out on the field and kiss ya if you do lol.
August 9th, 20091:19 am
Just get it up in the air Mac….no dp…
Only 1 time in history has there been a manager traded for a manager (between the Indians and Tigers back in the day)….can we work out a trade for announcers? I like the enthusiasm of the White Sox announcers.
-”You can put it on the boooooooooooooooard, yes. Hell Yes.”
That was rather disheartening.
Not good, McCann.
I never wanted to be your weekend lover. Only wanted to be some kind of friend… Where’s Mota?
August 9th, 20091:20 am
White sox announcers are dry as hell.
That last pitch was brought to you by Steroids. – Joe Simpson
The Bird and Indian
Someone wake McFann up. BMac just struck out again.
Still awake up there DOB??
Not sure y the double post….sorry.
Speaking of sorry…McCann just….well… nevermind.

Now see what you’ve made me do? You’ve made me resort to name calling. That’s how flipping stupid your comprehension of the English language is. Do you recall on the other blog earlier today, me laughing my ass of at you stating that there was no “reasoning” with a fellow blogger?
You are a baffoon. And idiot. A moron. Is English your first language? Do you have a brain cell left in your head? Does your drivers liscence have a photo of two eggs and some bacon? Or is it of the back of your head, because you can’t figure out which way to face to face the camera?
NO SH!T SHERLOCK! That’s my point. Do you realize that you are helping to make my point? Do you have a point? Do you COMPREHEND the point I’m trying to make?
I don’t think you do.
My point is that KK gets no run support. The other starters get no run support. We lose most games because we don’t score enough runs. Not because we give up too many. Cy Young could be our 5th starter and we would still lose most of those games.
THAT is why it would be nice to have ANOTHER BAT in our lineup. THAT is why I’ve stated that KK wasn’t neccesary. NOT because I think he can’t pitch.
You should try Hooked on Phonics. It’s worked for many. Of course, I’m sure you’d have a tough time reading where you can get it.
I gotta question Bobby Cox for pinch hitting B-Mac there. He’s been sitting on the bench all night, and then has to come in and face a guy who’s throwing 96mph and gets to strike out. Well Ross could have done that just as well!
Steve from OH
Well, we always have John Halama
As long as the announcer we get rid of is Chip.
Wow, McCann looked overmatched there. 1-11 in the series.
Geez Brian what is your deal lately.
Come on Mota, just one mistake…
If we trade for the “put it on the boooooooooooooooooooard” guy then I’m officially done watching the Braves. Guess I’ll have to watch the Dream during summers.
Sheisse. and if we got the wildcard, more than likely we’d be playing the dodgers. we’ve played them super tough this year
August 9th, 20091:21 am

nice, Kelly needs to bat when we put the B team on the field
Holy Sh!t Kelly!
John called it…
That HR was brought to you by steroid testing
I give him a lot of grief (and rightfully so), but he came through there.
August 9th, 20091:22 am
OH HELLL YEAHH!!!!!!! HAVE A GAME SIR HAVE A GAME!
KJ with a HUGE HR right there!
Mutha Effin Kelly. What now haters!
Heath, but if we got them, they would change it to, “You can ground it on the graaaaaaasssss”. No!”
