When this team gets hit hard they curl up like a baby in the fetal position. They have no fight when they are getting blown out. Javy had a bad inning and again Bobby left a starter in too long. No the game is practically out of reach. This team lately just always has our number. And Chipper needs to get on the phone with his dad and figure his stuff out. We really need him to start to be a force in the middle of that line up.
Big Chief -
Look at every “big game” since 1995. We play scared, good teams don’t play scared. I rest my case.
Either Fredi is taking a page from Bobby’s book (pitching a two hit shutout) or Sanchez was on a pitch count.
million bucks that there is a dp here soon
Escobar for Supreme Court
Atlanta got to Frenchy
How is Chipper going to hit into a double play? How many outs has he accounted for in his 0 for 18.
It may be me, but Chip must hit very well when I am not watching/game daying the game. He is hitting much like Norton when I listen.
Lets do something different and have a big comeback. I don’t think it is the constition and by-laws of Atalnta Braves baseball to fight back from 5 runs down,
August 21st, 20099:37 pm
Oh and HR Frenchy for all the haters”"
Chipper, can I please ask you to do something productive?
Needless to say (but ill say it anyway), we need at least a couple runs here!!
Mixxo I like your observaton.
Hurt!! DL time
Chop It Up All-Stars
August 21st, 20099:38 pm
Uh oh, Chipper’s hurt…will be on the bench tomorrow and the Braves will win the series.
There is 2 weeks for the finger nail Chipper. all he is thinking about is 8 pointers
Sit down Hoss.
Chipper Is Hurt. Get him out of the game after this inning!!!
do i hear a chipper chant?
Chipper is obviously hurt. They need to bite the bullit and sit him before its bad and hes out for a lot longer
August 21st, 20099:39 pm
You gotta figure at least 17 of those announced in attendance came up from Miami cause they couldn’t get seats at Land Shark Park
Thanks Chippa, I certainly appreciate it.
That ball was smoked.
Brandon from Warner Robins
Hey check swing hit…we’ll take it!
Powered out of the slump
We’ll take ‘em any way we can get ‘em now. NO DP MCCANN!!!! JUST SAY NO!!!!
We should be beating the hell out of this team. Position for position, rotation versus rotation, pen versus pen, no contest.
On lighter note enjoyed your “random university” comment in your open Ms. Rogers.
August 21st, 20099:40 pm
Chipper has become such a great infield singles hitter.
At least it is a hit and got rid of the o-19.
and i am betting its from McCann
Wow, he breaks up an 0 fer 18 slump with that thing…hope it gets him going, if he’s not on the bench tomorrow that is
Hey, was New Cars a dentist?
great after bobby leaves pitcher in too long we will score a couple of runs
i wonder if i can get an attorney who will represent me in suing the braves for emotional distress this season..
.200 ba in Aug for McCann… ewwwww
August 21st, 20099:41 pm
I don’t particularly care for JJ.
But that’s just me.
I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess that there’s a lot of people who don’t like a fat guy yelling at us 2-3 times a ballgame.
And has anybody seen the commercials where he’s giving health advice? Yeah….I’m looking to lose weight and I’m gonna listen to JJ.
…and it just got worse.
Of course. Of freakin course. I hate this.
I just don’t see Esco on the Supreme Court just yet. Needs to get some Dircuit Court time first. handling cases for Burris and Big Ben R
Damn though they were going to turn three
too bad we can’t win big games
August 21st, 20099:42 pm
man the yanks are giving it to the red sox.. 15 runs already and it’s just the 6th
6 home runs already with the Braves?
August 21st, 20099:43 pm
Hey Cox is finally learning. He only sat on his hands while his pitcher gave up 4 runs this time. Who knows, by the time the Braves are eliminated from postseason competition, maybe he’ll be pulling the starter while the Braves still have a chance to win! What an idiot!
Whats up with this shift on McCann? Has it always been this way, or has he developed an inability to hit to all fields, so teams put a shift on him?
Rafael-I though 7
August 21st, 20099:44 pm
Howd ya like to be a member of Red Sox Nation, the wheels have really come off the cart
make it 7 home runs!!!
Roachy! We still alive!
What’s the protocol for calling “unballgame?” I sitll think they should have called it in the sixth.
What now, bishes?
Should be a one-run game…
Ladies and gentleman, meet your new clean up hitter, Adam LaRoche!!
Thank you Wren for trading Krotchy for LaRoche. Thank you.
7th inning baby.
We got a lot of baseball to play.
I’ve never seen a homerun like that.
August 21st, 20099:45 pm
Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fat Lady has sat down for the moment.
La la la la la la la lam ROACHE
Gotta give Wren credit on that one.
As someone said, howd ya like to be a member of Red Sox Nation? Kothcy a nice guy, but they should have La Roache well medicated
I’m getting tired of Freddi Gonzalez not letting us take the lead before he takes out his pitcher. God. And some of you want him to be our manager.
August 21st, 20099:46 pm
Beautiful Swing from Adam. I think its time for Roachy to take the Cleanup spot.
Stick me in the Braves.
But not yet.
Caught Chip in a lie. He said he hasn’t seen Chipper in a few days.(ya right) A few minutes later, he says Santana didn’t have a great fastball last night. I’m not sure Chip knows what he’s talking about. Cubs did him right, and we got his lousy baggage. OFF WITH HIS HEAD.
By years end, most of you will agree. We could have had Smoltz & Glavine finish their careers in Atlanta on a farewell tour and the stadium would have been 80% full every night & we would have missed the playoffs…………….Or we could keep playing Frank and Bobby ball like we have for the last 4 years and we’ll keep and ‘competitive team’ but still miss the playoffs. Give me the farewell tour this year and start ALL OVER next year.
That homerun really is a rally killer though isn’t it?
I mean, I’ll take it especially the three run variety but now you have to start over again.
Kothcy a nice guy, but they should have La Roache well medicated
Huh? What does that mean?
Why you should not mentally check out on batters JV. See: final HR he gave up
We still have six weeks of baseball left. I knew we had time but to hear that just sounds different.
LaRoche for cleanup… I don’t know what else to say.
why, why did booby have to let the game get out of hand? how big is not getting out of that inning with 2 outs and a runer on 3rd?
Falcons, Shockley not looking good. Could he be replace by Bama QB?
August 21st, 20099:47 pm
Rox r down 3-1 and Phils down 4-1.
Just win, baby.
Chis K, interesting points addressed there.
Id rather win personally
Yeah, no kidding.
BMac had me fooled after that series against the Mets…
August 21st, 20099:48 pm
All you fat ladies can stop singing.
Mitchell, you sound like Francoeur. Rally killer?
Yunel. Barely…But we’ll take it.
You’re out of your mind.
DANGIT!! Why couldn’t that stupid guy have missed BMac’s out!!

Bobby makes no sense…they specifically trade for him because of how much power he has and because he is a notorious second-half hitter. And, he is doing exactly, if not more, than what they wanted…and yet, he still has him hitting below McCann. No sense at all.
what a throw…
So why no supreme court Virginia Ranger?
August 21st, 20099:49 pm
Patience, Matty, Patience.
RHR Roache has some attention deficient issues, you can use Ritalin to overcome that. When you be thinkin clearly you can whack zee baseaball all over the place. Specially if you have a naturally sweet swing like Adma, I mean Adam
So let me get this straight….you’d rather have Smoltz and Glavine than Hanson and Javy or KK, the season be over in June, and the Braves in a race with the Nationals for last place than still in it in September? Let’s face it…you’re and idiot.
August 21st, 20099:50 pm
It’s like he’s learned nothing from Bobby Cox.
I know it doesnt make sense to me either. He’s going to stay there if they come back and win though
Anibel looks nervous.
Good to see we got back into it thanks to Roachy…Bobby will not bat him 4th til the last week of the season
Please no Norton, please no Norton….
August 21st, 20099:51 pm
Matty…..sucker for some high cheese.
Oh ok…Roachy takes his ADD meds all season long though.
400 innings of relief thats crazy
oops…forgot about Reid first.
Reid, do something productive.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
