Twice now that Omar has taken a free pass…didn’t even think about offering at those. If only the rest of the team would take notice.
August 16th, 200911:05 pm
Boy This Offense has been Flat ever since the day off on Thursday
The Don and Jim on the radio are giving major props to Carroll’s interview with Frenchy.
The Bird and Indian
The Angels deserve a little chat. They have played great and don’t even get talked about.
Nova Scotia Steve
I like Miller and Morgan…sorry guys.
Phillips – Not so much
August 16th, 200911:06 pm
Odds on whether Vick is mentioned during this game?
69 PITCHES in 5 innings…31 balls and yet we have 1 run on 2 hits
NO MORE BOBBY
August 16th, 200911:07 pm
Two game swing at stake here. Would like to see a little more life tonight.
Can ESPN’s coverage of this game be any more bias? MLB should fix this garbage.
Could be worse.
Could have zero runs on zero hits.
August 16th, 200911:08 pm
Yup…this is a big one here folks….we have a chance to win it.
I honestly don’t think this is just a career “up” year for Vazquez. He’s found himself as a pitcher, even at his advanced age. Takes a long time for some guys. Took five-years before Steve Bartkowski was worth a damn. It’s like it all hit him at once, “ahhh, so THIS is how you do it?” Isn’t that at least possible with Vazquez? I just can’t see his coming out and pitching like a stiff next year. Maybe Roger had the magic formula for him. Maybe he figured it out for himself…
Screw You Jon Miller
Thanks Jon Miller.
Literally, as he was saying ‘cant buy a hit against atlanta pitching…” he rips a single to right.
And that probably means it’s a double.
Wow. Morgan’s really not gonna let it go. Poor Utley – yesterday’s loss is all on you bud!
August 16th, 200911:09 pm
6th hit in 50 at bats?
Uh…huh? What? You talking to me? (McFann)
nope not me. I’m gonna crawl in the corner and be nice the rest of the night, even if it kills me.
Give him a break. He’s a second baseman. He knows that play should have been made.
J-Roll is on base for Vic Utley and Howard, Not Good!
J-Roll will be running!
We just have to accept as Braves fans, we will always be sisters to the poor compared to the Yankees and Red Sox. If I’m not mistaken, we are the third most popular team so no need to cry about it.It could be so much worse lol. Heck we are nationwide tonight
August 16th, 200911:10 pm
Lets throw strikes here Javy cmo
This could be bad…
August 16th, 200911:11 pm
Uh oh. Trouble. Dun dun dun.
Braves Fan in SC
That Effing Pestorino!
control the damage…Anytime the Phillies get the lead-off man on in front Utley, Howard,etc. its ALWAYS a RUN…just minimize damage
Its easy to say..they ARE going to score here..
Well, this is fun.
Luckily, it’s only Utley, Howard and Werth coming up.
Ugh well at least it’s only runners on 1st and 2nd and not on the corners…
Loaf batting in the 2nd spot is killing us. Makes no sense. Perfect double play candidate, can’t score with Chipper and McCann doubling behind him, makes no sense at all. Going to be tough to score runs with him hitting in the 2 hole.
This look bad.
August 16th, 200911:12 pm
Considering How Bad our AWFense has been this series this is not good! We have to get out of this inning no worse than the game being 2-1
The_Superhoo: Odds on whether Vick is mentioned during this game?
I’d say the odds are pretty good since you just mentioned him…
Come onnnn Triple Play!
August 16th, 200911:13 pm
I meant on the ESPN broadcast.
Count de Monet
Javy doesn’t have his great control. As sutton would say he’s bumming his way through the game so far.
Do we really need little league scores on the bottom line scroll?
Could anyone possibly care that Chula, Calif. won today?
August 16th, 200911:14 pm
Paul Lentz selected Chula’s pitchers on his fantasy team tonight!
Javy getting Utley was big!
Nice K!!! That might be huge!
August 16th, 200911:15 pm
Sit down Ugly.
Big K of Utley
now PLEASE GET HOWARD!! Cmon Javy!
Well, not going to be able to play the shift here, I wouldn’t imagine.
That’s a big first out.
Its for the kids man.
Nice K JV
“Loaf batting in the 2nd spot is killing us. Makes no sense. Perfect double play candidate, can’t score with Chipper and McCann doubling behind him, makes no sense at all. Going to be tough to score runs with him hitting in the 2 hole.”
I agree you don’t want him there but he wouldn’t be if not for the injury problems we have.
Hilarious listening to Morgan dump all over Utley tonight, fielding, hitting both. But Howard, he’s all about the “big fly”.
I’m Getting Hot Flashes Here! This is not good!
I meant on the ESPN broadcast.”"
When you’re talkin to and accomplished idiot, you have to be specific!
August 16th, 200911:16 pm
oh well..there’s your Ballgame folks
You’ve GOT to be kidding me.
Good night, literally.
I KNEW that was coming. UGH.
Hmm. Not looking good.
Game Over F***!!!!!!!!!!!!!
yall are crazy
There goes our season.
B A L L G A M E !
See ya tomorrow.
Chilidog75 I do! Our town had 2 teams playing in Little league WS.
Our girls are in Portland, and ours boys are heading to Williamsport.
I’ll ask again.
How many times has Howard been hit by Braves pitching?
That folks is the ballgame
Balllgame haha WOW he threw it down the middle again sorry as hell
Jimmy Joe Jimbob
Ryan Howard = Braves Killer.
August 16th, 200911:17 pm
Stick a fork in us!!!!!
Offense has to answer next inning to stay in this game.
Gawd I hate losing games Like this because This Shhittyyy Ass Offense Fails to show up after the Off day
what was Javy thinking there? unreal
Morgan has spoken…the way McCann is setting up behind the plate is giving away the pitches and causing the Braves to lose.
Have at it, McFann.
Why is it over already?
It’s the 6th f***ing inning. Give me a break Braves fans.
That was a batting practice pitch!
I know I’m just mad but it annoys the hell outta me when he stands there and gawks at his homeruns.
I’m just mad though.
i hate that big palooka
Man, how sweet would it be to have a bat like that in our lineup. I like our lineup. But three-run homers are few and far between. Impact power would be HUGE for this team.
Jon Miller couldn’t be happier. He loves seeing the Braves lose, especially after what must have been a disappointing game for him last night.
August 16th, 200911:18 pm
complete and utter hope crusher. 4 games vs. 6. choke, choke choke.
CRAP!!! We need a big bat next year!!!
Joe Morgan is the Terrence Moore of the broadcast booth … if you know what I mean.
So Vasquez shows his true colors hey hes a subpar pitcher having a career year can’t argue with the career numbers and Howard put the braves away
I think I heard the crack of Braves Nations back on that one….
We’re still in good shape tho…Wild Card/play-off race etc
Phillies are just a better team. Have the ability to score runs with average, power, and speed. Braves really don’t have any of those things. And now the Phillies have starting pitching that is as good as the Braves…not good.
Stupid Bobby making that pitch to Howard.
Pretty inexcusable to do that twice. Javy? ughh
here’s an idea: dont have a RHP pitch to howard! jeezuss!!!!!
Tomahawkin Why Was I thinking the same thing on that homer by Matty-D?
Hmm…REALLY wish they woulda been on base now.
Don’t worry about it…I gotta shut the computer down, now.
Mitchell – The Braves have 2 hits and are facing Happ, its over, accept it.
August 16th, 200911:19 pm
Why is the Braves PA announcer giving out Phillies records? Who gives a sh!t!?!
You all have to be kidding me. It’s the 6th inning.
I think that we should send ESPN emails and complain about how hard these three are sucking Ryan Howards and the Phillies dicks. As a matter of fact im doing it now
Lets hope we can Beat Scherzer tomorrow
Another bad pitch and he parks it in the seats. So frustrating, you can make the guy look like a complete fool but if you make a mistake he will kill you.
Offense needs to pick this guy up, he’s been big for you. All your pitchers have.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
