Sure would be nice if the Braves would start this series out with a bang.
August 25th, 20098:15 pm
I would like to point out that the Braves have no hits through four innings against a young man who spells his first name Mat. And his last name Latos.
It would appear the Braves are Latos-intolerant….
August 25th, 20098:16 pm
Not the kids fault his parents named him Mat with one t.
Brandon from Warner Robins
Nice try DOB. Nice Try.
August 25th, 20098:17 pm
It would be funny if we weren’t playing so poorly
OK you guys….we REALLY need a run or two. No more f*ing around.
Any of you guys buy any Mega Millions lotto tickets for tonight’s drawing? It’s up to $252 mil.
comical. disastrous. redick

Paul Lentz – I like Dexter even more than Yunel!
Btw, I also picked up some great shows from reading this blog. Sons of Anarchy & Breaking Bad are top notch.
hahaha “Latos-intolerant” NICE. I’m a great lover of puns
Dan Kolb's Mom
They leak the 1st dexter episode every year to generate buzz and whatnot. i seriously think season 2 of dexter was the greatest television i have ever seen.
August 25th, 20098:19 pm
that wasn’t really a “pun”
DOB- that lactos intolerant joke was awesome. so, so lame. but awesome.
puns, plays on words. who cares.
August 25th, 20098:20 pm
Season 1 was the best. Season 2 was second best. Season 3 was good, but the last episode sucked. The last episode was way too rushed
August 25th, 20098:21 pm
swung at Ball 4
August 25th, 20098:22 pm
just let this guy walk you. He’s all over the freaking place.
bout damn time
Fastball to Loaf…
There goes the no-no… thank goodness.
w00t! Attaboy Garret!
Can’t sneak the cheese past Loaf!
Escobar’s walkup song sucks
Steve from OH
August 25th, 20098:23 pm
That’s a really aggressive lead off first, Loaf…geez.
Check out the camera man with the cowboy hat on. lol
August 25th, 20098:24 pm
Escobar’s old lady is luscious. I was checking her out on:
Esco spoiled one there
August 25th, 20098:25 pm
Gotta swing on anything close with 2 strikes Esco.
Nova Scotia Steve
Can’t believe this
BS call. that was way low
August 25th, 20098:27 pm
The Braves deserve to lose.
Come on guys. Dont let this clown make you swing at heaters. He’s thrown all around outside the zone. just take the walks.
Maaaan this is going by fast.
We’re looking like chumps out there.
August 25th, 20098:28 pm
Still a lot of baseball left. However, our bats are awfully quiet so far tonight.
Remember when I posted this today?
DOB: Mat Latos is 0-2 with a 14.09 ERA and .417 opponents’ average in his past two starts, after going 4-0 with a 2.10 ERA and .186 opponents’ average in his previous four.””
What ya wanna bet we get the ace instead of the goat? That’s just the way things usually go for us with opposing pitchers.

Who is Chipper’s batting coach…Frenchy?
August 25th, 20098:30 pm
shame we aren’t showing up, the phil’s and marlins aren’t having an easy time
don’t let it get lost in the shuffle … JJ is pitching awfully well tonight
August 25th, 20098:31 pm
Looking for a bright side? We’re guaranteed a win the next two if we lose tonight.
Cheapest double in the world
cabravesfan – “golf – zzzzzzz” – didn’t a little birdie tell me you watched most of the Solheim Cup this weekend? And the PGA last week?
August 25th, 20098:32 pm
another single that gets to be a double, ho hum
shamus thacker- our poor offense always seems to make all pitchers look like Ace’s
August 25th, 20098:33 pm
EMABARRASING. CANT GET A HIT VERSES ONE OF THE WORST TEAMS IN THE MAJORS.
Ahh what a boring game where in the world is our offense… hopefully were not going through one of those stretches again.
DOB – did hear Latos-intolerant on 680 around noon today
Lies! Vicious, scandalous lies! You have no proof!!!
methinks the lady doth protest too much…
August 25th, 20098:34 pm
Boog…spot on about UZR. Good, not great.
Can we get a run – please
JJ pitching around the cheap hit. Nice. Now lets get him some runs!
Norris–what? I don’t speak yell.
August 25th, 20098:35 pm
I have to agree with Boog about the validity of those “judging” who should have gotten to a ground ball in a certain range. It is very subjective.
I wanna see a Diaz double…JJ moving him to 3rd, and Omar getting him in.
NORRIS: EMABARRASING. CANT GET A HIT VERSES ONE OF THE WORST TEAMS IN THE MAJORS.
Doesn’t matter how bad the team is if the pitcher is dealin…
August 25th, 20098:36 pm
steve from ohio why be a smart mouth
Did someone forget to tell the Braves offense that their day off was yesterday?
Everytime they have a day off, they show up flat. They can not afford to give games away that they should win at this point in the season.
Do tell. No, seriously, explain to me why UZR is subjective in your own words. I agree with Boog, but I have a hunch that you haven’t a clue what UZR is or how it is calculated, and just don’t like it because you don’t understand it.
you try to vent your frustrations and mr ohio man wants to say i dont speak yell. Well i do. I am upset and yelling on my computer makes perfect sense
August 25th, 20098:37 pm
Well..it wasn’t a double…
I have no idea what you are talking about.
corky miller…rbi…reds v brewers
August 25th, 20098:38 pm
Steve you come on here all the time throwing out some kind of weird stats. whats up with you. Plus anytime somebody says something you got to try and belittle them. chill out man and just vent like the rest of us.
Can Vazquez pinch-bunt for JJ?
Here we go….another guessing game with the bunt attempt.
August 25th, 20098:39 pm
With that hit, Diaz is up to .311 for the season.
August 25th, 20098:40 pm
Whew….had me worried.
Clutch 2 strike bunt!
Great job to get a bunt down with 2 strike JJ.
Way to go JJ. Phew… bunting with the Braves… always an ordeal.
And he proves me wrong – good job Jurrjens
August 25th, 20098:41 pm
i guess he helped get Latos’ pitch count up a few
Nice work JJ!! Love the cheers for him!
I know the Braves seem to be enamored with this lose-the-first-game-and-win-the-rest thing, but it’s the freakin’ Padres.
18 Wheels of Love
Better Latos than never!
Bobby has no ability to build a fire under this team, never has… Reminiscent of playoff series long ago…
August 25th, 20098:42 pm
BAH! Find a gap!
i just want to thank everybody here … in all seriousness … i work nights mostly, and watching the game is frowned upon where I work … so, what do I do? i continually refresh this blog, and am able to follow the game just as well … i keep the game-tracker on as well, but when things slow down there, or something happens that the game-tracker doesn’t illustrate, I can always count on you guys … thanks again!
Come on Prado!
Need a clutch hit.
I thought that was hit harder…or not to the RF for that matter
….just got under it.
DAMN. Good baserunning by Matty though. 90 feet awayyy…
August 25th, 20098:43 pm
Dude is throwin hard man…wow
cabravesfan – or should I call you christinakimfan – dissembling does not become you
No offense just awful wow.
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH so close at first
I still say….
August 25th, 20098:44 pm
#%##!!!!!! why the hell not
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
