20 to 11?
That’s a disgrace. Those teams should be removed from baseball.
Brad Penny sucks.
All I know is if the Yankees end up playing the Angels in the playoffs, they will lose. The Yankees are to the Angels what the Angels are to the Red Sox in October.
The Yankees are going to lose in the playoffs either way. I can’t say I really want to see the Phillies win the world series again but if it comes down to them and the Dodgers again, they have my support.
The Cardinals don’t impress me. I bet we’ll beat them in St. Louis next month.
All I know is the Yankees aren’t going to win the world series. I guarantee you that. And I said the same thing about the Cubs last year.
20-11… that’s just disgusting.
Watched The Prestige again last night…. I like that movie, but even if I didn’t, I definitly like watching Scarlett Johansson…. hmmm…. I’m in a little bit better of a mood with just the mere mention of her name.
Any ideas on how long it might be before they consider ending the game?
Escobar for Supreme Court
Im not bias hanley doesnt make a lot of the plays yunel does, how many runs has he saved us by making web gems

Esco- Any GM that passes on that trade would be unemployed the next day.
August 21st, 200911:24 pm
Well my imaginary GM wouldnt

I appreciate the history of Fenway, but I really cant stand it.
August 21st, 200911:26 pm
Steve Holt, off the top of my head the Braves have recently lost the first game against SD/LA/Phi/NY and now it looks like Fla. if they don’t start soon. No way it goes another hour before they call it. I wouldn’t think.
August 21st, 200911:27 pm
guess the braves wont lose any ground with a loss tonight, but at some point they are going to have to start taking advantage when the phils and whoever is leading the wild card loses.
I guess they might still play.
If they can find a way to win this, it would be huge.
Has the Game Been Called…? One of the Phillies commentators said the game is over…
August 21st, 200911:28 pm
Would have been a good night for a win Phillies lose Rockies Losing
August 21st, 200911:29 pm
Hanley Ramirez just said Jeff Blauser and Otis Nixon where two of his Idols coming up. Your Atlanta Braves “the worlds team”, those were the days.
August 21st, 200911:30 pm
Nice screen name.
August 21st, 200911:31 pm
I dont see that confirmed anywhere. Don’t think it has been called yet.
Bat- yeah, the goose that layed the golden egg was strangled when TBS stopped carrying braves games.
August 21st, 200911:32 pm
I have not seen it confirmed over yet. Still in delay.
Just noticed that all of the damage done against Vazquez his last two rough starts has been via home runs; maybe it’s just fatigue, but I hope it isn’t the start of a trend like Soriano’s bad stretch last year….

This trophy is really shiny. Oh, what’s up, Tiger?
August 21st, 200911:34 pm
Heath – I also like The Prestige, although I have trouble sometimes differentiating it from The Illusionist. The key difference, I suppose, is Scarlett in one and Jessica Biel in the other.
August 21st, 200911:35 pm
Yang how were those 20 shots I bought you after the round. Damn you one crazy man. I’m doing good just confirmed I will be playing next week in the Barclays. I would rather win that instead of the PGA championship anytime.
August 21st, 200911:38 pm
I’m ready for the Jay Leno show. Letterman isnt as funny.
bases loaded in the 7th with 1 out for the rockies. SF up 6-1. Give me a dp here
I didn’t like the Illusionist as much… though.. Jessica Biel is also very easy on the eyes. I’m a bit different from most….of all the actresses, I like Kate Beckinsale the most. Don’t know what it is about her…
Letterman’s better at the interviews though, IMO.
August 21st, 200911:39 pm
Guy on the radio just asked Chip if he thinks he will manage the Braves when Bobby quits. What do yall think?
For those crying for LaR for cleanup………….forget it………..it aint happening. Remember Coxs approach toward game………..That is Mcs spot and it will stay like that for months……….many………..just like the KJ vs Prado thing and just like the JF situation and just like many many more things……..I can also mantion Wickman as closer……….. Cox will stick with some decision he has previously made until the waters of the red sea come apart again…….the moses biblical miracle, you know.
Nothing like going from Pujols vs Hanley to Scarlet J vs Jessica Biel, lol. The game better start back pretty soon…..
August 21st, 200911:40 pm
Its almost out of Atlanta
I take it you’ve never been there.
I would say its on the west side, for whoever was asking…
August 21st, 200911:41 pm
Heath – no argument there on Kate… (don’t tell our friend I’m voting for a brunette – although she is an Underworld fan).
Carroll just saw your note that the game would have been over had you started at 7.10, but that fails to take account of the huge rally by the Braves in the 9th, which would take it into extras, so you would have been watching the 11th inning when the rains came.
Hope it clears up soon so we can watch the come back!
Excuse me. Guy on the radio asked Chip if he thinks if Chipper will manage the Braves when Bobby retires. My bad there.
Chipper + Mc + LaR + Yunel in the 9th…………just picture perfect, I hope they play up to their capabilities. We need this win soooooooooooooo bad………..
August 21st, 200911:42 pm
Tired of waiting I’m going to watch Hannah Montana
Scarlett and Jessica both are my future ex-wives. I need some practice wives before I settle down with Kate Beckinsale and live happily ever after.
August 21st, 200911:43 pm
Just barely a sprinkle now…
If you want to see something really funny check out Lettermans interview with Joaquin Phoenix. One of the wierdest/funniest interviews I’ve ever seen.
Doc Holiday – we still have to get to the bottom half of the ninth down 5-2, man on first, 1-out with Hanley coming up third….
nice 1-2-3 dp for the giants
I think he will manage the braves in some sort of way and I look forward to seeing it.
(5-3 hit the wrong key)
August 21st, 200911:44 pm
Ok maybe thats more than a sprinkle.
August 21st, 2009
The G-rated stuff….or the uhm….not so G-rated stuff?
Good lord that stupid cow is heinous.
Brandon from Warner Robins
Yea dude its crazy, he went nuts. I wonder how his rap career is going.
August 21st, 200911:45 pm
I’m betting they’ll call BALLGAME! any minute now..
Blasphemy. Leno’s a hack, Letterman is a genius.
August 21st, 200911:46 pm
Does Joe Know I can hear him talking on Peachtree on Dishnet?
August 21st, 2009
Doesn’t the home team have something to say about that? If so…they may want to wait.
I get the Braves’ Peachtree TV feed with no commercials or programming. The camera has been on the whole time. Joe thinks they’re going to bang the game. He says, with a yawn, that there are people here “for some frickin’ reason.”
Gotta love that Peachtree TV feed.
August 21st, 200911:47 pm
Joe : “theres people still here for some freakin reason”
Escobar for Supreme Court- What career? He should’ve stuck with acting..And you’ve got my support should u be nominated for the high court.
It’s awesome, Jimbo.
Letterman has the same set of jokes he always uses. Leno at least tries to be creative.
Radio guys said the umpire is willing to wait quite a while. So hopefully in the next 45 minutes?!?!?!
August 21st, 200911:48 pm
Brandon from Warner Robins-
Exactly his first perfomance he got laughed at so bad it made him fall off the stage! I actually liked him as an actor.
Still raining, still lightining…
August 21st, 200911:49 pm
I cant spell late at night, leave me alone.
I’m pretty sure they can call it now if they want. The Marlins didn’t take the lead this inning, so the Braves have techincally had as much of a chance as the Fish have.
Anybody remember the Andy Kaufman/Jerry Lawler “feud” Letterman staged back in the day. That was funny..
August 21st, 200911:50 pm
This is taking longer than a Derek Lowe 4th inning..
Whos watching family guy on peachtree?
Buffalo NY Braves Fan
It’s an official game, the home team has zero say in the matter at this point. It’s all up to the umpires.
Carroll… Any chance they suspend the game rather than calling it? I’ve looked up the rules and they are kinda vague on suspending games…
August 21st, 200911:51 pm
When its after five the call it
August 21st, 200911:52 pm
I believe games are suspended in extra innings and tie games. This game has a “winner” at this point. They would just call the game.
Time for bed
August 21st, 200911:53 pm
Chop Chop, what, are you just watching the TV and the rain falling? Man, and I thought my Friday night stunk. WOW, you made my night…funny stuff!
This is the best weatherman ever.
August 21st, 200911:54 pm
Cant help but believe that if this is still a 5-0 game it’s already been called…
I SAW A FISH!
August 21st, 200911:55 pm
Escobar for Supreme Court – check out my link from Family guy
good post a643dp. got me laughing. lol
August 21st, 200911:56 pm
I did lol that show is great. I wanna watch Cleveland when it comes out.
How long have we been delayed now? I lost track of time.
August 21st, 200911:57 pm
Jman, we’re sitting here looking at it on tv, Joe just came on with an update not 2 minutes ago. It has not been called. It probably will be, but it hasn’t at this point.
About an hour.
Whos watching family guy on peachtree? – Escobar for Supreme Court
Not me, I’m watching the Vikes & Chiefs right now and listening to my “party punks” obnoxious neighbors try and blow up their motors down the street. I suppose they worked up their liquid courage enough to try and goad me out to call ‘em out again. Might just let the Police handle it this time.
August 21st, 200911:58 pm
Games gunna get called more just moved in from the north
Bout another hour of rain. If they have waited this long might as well wait it out? Come on Blue let us play ball in the morning!
August 21st, 200911:59 pm
I’M AT THE WRONG AIRPORT!
Mixxo – you watching Favre? Booooo.
You know, I don’t get Peachtree TV here in my new apartment so I thought I had escaped Chip for the night, but the dang rain delay means I’ve had to hear him since this rain delay started. *facepalm*
Though it wasn’t her first movie, Pearl Harbor is where her career seemed to turn….she’s a mainliner now….wasn’t before then.
August 22nd, 200912:00 am
Yeah ,Smitty, live used to be so simple, turn on TBS and watch the Braves. Now its Sun or Fox, ESPN, but mostly on my computer, sigh.
So Matty Ice is gunna win us a Ship this year. Bout the only sport Atl has this now
August 22nd, 200912:01 am
life, what freakin time is it?
August 22nd, 200912:02 am
Heath, shes one of my favorite too. Do you like heath bars as much as you like her?
Escobar for Supreme Court -
I dunno, the Hawks are getting better too. Made the playoffs two years in a row now and actually advanced to the next round this year.
if the game was still 5-0 they would have called it already… that’s what I meant… I know it hasnt been called yet…
August 22nd, 200912:03 am
is it still raining>
Conversation between LaRoche and Chipper right now:
CJ– “Ready for some huntin”?
AL– “uhhh(5 second pause)… you know that’s right”.
CJ– “I’m ready to kill some bucs”.
AL– “mmmm, that is some good eatin”.
CJ– “you hear about that dead Mexican they found at my Ranch”?
AL– “uhhhhh……… yeah”.
CJ– “My dad shot at the carcus cause he thought it was a turkey”.
it’s orange outside. very odd looking sky @ sunset. RHR
Yeah, same here. Our power went out for about an hour and a half just as my computer was about to die. The power came on just in time to see Chipper’s infield hit and Laroche’s homer. Good timing if I say so myself…
August 22nd, 200912:04 am
Haaa! Naw, not a Favre fan at all, I switched over to the Drive By Truckers on Austin City Limits.
Escobar for SC- Have you seen this episode of cops its great.
NO MORE BOBBY
August 22nd, 200912:05 am
I blame Bobby for the weather.
How does Brad Penny get on ESPN yet I have never seen them interview Chipper. O ya its the Red Sox you can suck and still be in the spotlight.
August 22nd, 200912:06 am
Cops is one of my favorite shows. Hey look an episodes on right now!!
is it still raining
It’s raining sideways!
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
