Gorecki is very fortunate there. If that throw is on target, Gorecki is on the next taxi back to Triple A.
Gutsy steal. I like it.

Nice slide Gorecki!
The Bird and Indian
Jurrjens4NLCY: Actually he was safe bud.
nasty… he probably gets a slider here…
took the DP away
told ya… he’ll put him on to keep a double play in order…
How bout a hit.
SCore reid dammit!
he hasn’t thrown a fastball on a 3-ball count yet, Garrett.

good god at the gap in left center
GA!!!!!!!!!!! – good eye
it might hurt like running after fly balls
Good eye Loafy!
Good eye….professional eye!
Here we go Yunel.
The Braves running? In the ninth?
All right, who are you and what have you done with Bobby?
Two run homer LOAF!!!
Loaf Garret on a blackberry from 1st base
Professional at bat right there, folks.
Steve from OH
Psssh…look at Loafy flip that bat away like he’s Steve McQueen or something…
Time for a Grand Slam
once again, i say … it’s situations like these were true leaders emerge
Please pinch run for GA.
Win this game.
Double please Yunel. No DP.
ok yuney. go to work.
Esco….this is his spot. Runners in scoring position. Who better?
Mr. Clutch up.
Chop It Up All-Star
Escobar – the one guy I want up in this spot!!
Come on ESCO!!!!!
Braves fan in Nebraska
Crap….I hope we don’t get the bases loaded…that is sure fire doom! lol
Bobby should pinch run for Garret here. Gorecki can always play the outfield if this game goes extra innings.
Really? You think? Idk Idc! Lets go Yunel!
See, now seriously. Why can’t they have this EXACT approach earlier in the game? Make a pitcher work.
Come on Bell, get escober to hit into a double play
Come on Esco, you’re due. Be a hero!
August 25th, 20099:49 pm
That was a strike????
That was a high strike.
Just got home. One word….
Dodgers and Rockies playing each other (meaning one of the two teams we might be chasing has to lose tonight – the current WC leading Rockies are losing 2-0), and the Braves about to lose to the frickin Padres.
But yeah. We’re all supposed to get pumped about the 2009 playoffs, right? Things are still looking p for 2010.
But if there was ever a “must sweep” series, this was it. I’ll repeat it….
This 9th inning will tell us all we need to know about this team’s chances at October baseball in 2009. Pull this one out, and we look like a team on the move. Choke it out, and well……
I have to pinch run for GA now. He might not score from 1st on a double.
wtf was that
ONE MORE BELL

Better than a DP though.
that was about as bad an AB as Yunel’s had all season long. Not a great time for it.
Ugly AB. Come on Adam!!!!
I want Matty Diaz. Just get to Diaz.
Yep. K. Way to go Esco.
mister clutch alright…at least he didn’t get a dp…
It’s time for LaRoche to make Frank Wren look like a genius here………..
Escobar. Professional hitter – not.
NO NO NO NO!
YES! I TOLD YOU!
Padres would never put on the winning run to face the best hitter is baseball!
wow. wow. wow.
More high heat. Stop swinging at it plz.
yes… i woulda sent him…
The Roach Coach!
Rochey comes through HUGE!
Why did Bobby bat Adam 7th? – moron!
tie game baby. hey madre padre LICK MY TAINT
LAROCHE!!!! ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME????? Take that 0-6 and shove it!
YA BABY!!!! CHOP CHOP!!!!!!! COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GO BRAVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
F U CASEY KOTCHMAN
LA FCKING ROCHE!!!
i feel like looking at it this way: game over if they get that sac fly in the 8th
keylargo–was thinking the same thing. Don’t know if it would’ve mattered there though…would’ve been close.
Atta way Roachy!
Hot Damn Adam!!!!
Whoaaaaaaa. I take it, I take it.
High five, ya’ll!
Damn………if Bobby pinch runs for Garret, it’s BALLGAME.
August 25th, 20099:51 pm
WOO!!!!! way to go ROACH!
JJ off the hook!!
PRAISE THE LORD JESUS
THANK YOU GOD
I’M GOING TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY… THE CHURCH OF RYAN.
Win it right here!!!!
I’m sick of my team
OK Matty end it. That short bench killed us, but we don’t want to use up the DL
Chipper on a deer call from the dugout
Thats my butt commander buddy!
As I was saying.
Now why in the puck didn’t Bobby pinch-run for Loaf?
Nice, smart move not running for loaf, coulda been ball game
he’d have been out by 30 feet
When your best three clutch hitters of late — Infante, Prado and … whuh whuh whuh just happened? Well, OK, one of the best four just came through.
9 for 10! 9 for 10!!!!
Again…another shot of those two ‘fans’ in the stands. Makes what just happend even better. Good job SS.
ROACHES CAN SURVIVE ANYTHING!
quick, make the pitcher wear a marlins cap
Yes, Mr. Sign guy I do believe!!
Diaz has this.
Pinch run for GA and it game over
lets go… single and game over. Diaz delivers…
I like Venable kid..we should try to acquire him for next season. Like the bat and glove…..and the price!
August 25th, 20099:52 pm
Kotchman who??!??!! Way to go Adam!!
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
