Fregg you KJ would have scored
Wild pitch anyone?
The Braves are the most dramatic team in baseball THATS FOR DAMN SURE
The Bird and Indian
What? What was that?
Dan Kolb's Mom
awww man come on
LOL @ the F U Casey Kotchman remark
THAT IS F******* CLUTCH ROCHEY! DAMN I WISH WE STILL HAD KOTCHMAN!
What the hell was that?
Bell just doesnt give a f…
but.. what the hell…?
too bad loafs not smart enough to know how many are out real “profesional ” LOL
Steve from OH
WTH was that? Dang it, I friggin’ hate bunts…
Really? A bunt by a guy that is 8 for his last 9?
Eek, bunted too hard. Oh well – onto the 10th.
Um, Matt, uh, what the hell was that?
thhhannnk you aadddam!!
UMMM … WHAAAA??? Matty um Whaaa???
And the story with that was?
Free baseball against a pi%%% poor team.
Would have worked if he didn’t hit it so hard. Good try Matt.
Hmm. Interesting. But if he gets that three feet to the left. It’s ball game. Not a bad idea.
this SOB laid down a bunt…
August 25th, 20099:53 pm
Jurrjens4NLCY: Yeah, no they aren’t.
Send Moylan back out there.
Im so taking a dry erAse board to the next game. And wtf with the bunt??? Whose bright idea was that crap?
DIAZ! What the HECK??
Bahhhh nice try, but shoulda gone for the bunt in the EIGHTH, not in the NINTH with 2 outs.
Lets go Matt Capps!
WTF MATTY D SWING AWAY if we loose becuase of GA slow ass i will go crazy because anyone besides him and BMAC this games over what a shame LOAF.
What the hell, Diaz? You’ve got 8 hits in your last 9 at-bats. Why are you friggin bunting? Horrible.
Well that was something Matty, I’m not sure what
Well, at least we will win it in overtime.
Im Matt Diaz im hotter than an blazing hot IRON and I bunt the winning run home? Not what I had in mind MattyD.
MFIKY's chauffeur giving MFIKY's thoughts from an Iphone
Daaaammn. Matty better watch his self tonite…gonna have to start diggin’ another hole in my backyard.
Swing the bat Matty!!!!
Nice try Matty. Good idea, just a little too hard.
Damn you Matt Capps! haha
August 25th, 20099:54 pm
Pushed it a little to the right…I like our chances in extras
Garrett, you GOTTA be watching the third base coach, not the play…but way to go ROACHEY!!
8 for his last 9 and he bunts? Swing the freakin’ bat, Diaz – you idiot! Who do you think you are, Otis Nixon?
I think KJ could have scored from 1st on that. He’s the fastest guy on the team with McLouth DLed.
Damn it Matt. That would have been a game winner if he didn’t hit it so hard.
We better not lose it now.
Come on bullpen.
At least we tied it. Hell of an attempt by Diaz would have been sweet way to win.
ummm………why did Diaz bunt again???? Hes SO hot right now!!!
I doubt that Bell comes out for the bottom of the 10th. It took him 24 pitches to blow the save. The Padres have used their set up man and closer. We still have out closer and set-up man left.
In other words, we should win the game against the weak Padres bullpen.
I love Adam Laroche. I wonder if Shamus is warming up to him yet?
He could’ve walked to first if he would’ve bunted it toward second
ok thats 3 games that isaid that there goin down 1 2 3 but matt what the hec were u thinking….. unrealll that was a freebeee… good grief think man.. a hit wins the game that wasnt close especially against a guy throwing 92 winning run on 3rd.. use ur stinkin heads..
Nice try Matty!
August 25th, 20099:55 pm
“Well, at least we will win it in overtime.
Yeah, all we need is a FG.
8 for his last 9 and he tries to SURPRISE THE D. it was a smart play, but pushed too far to the 1B. get it in between the 1B and 2B, or even to the 2B and he’s on base.
did he seriously just bunt? stupid stupid baseball.
GonZo in there to only pitch against A – Gon
We’re just trying to one-up the Rockies after their game last night.
He might have, KL. Would’ve been close IMO. Could be wrong. Still, dunno why Cox didn’t pinch-run though in that spot…
If it wasn’t JJ’s start tonite I think he would’ve run JJ though.
August 25th, 20099:56 pm
Capps blew a 5 run 9th inning lead against the Phillies during their 10 game winning streak earlier this year.
Kelly Bolt definitely would have scored there. He might have even beaten Gorecki home.
August 25th, 20099:57 pm
Mitchell: Your vocabulary is kind of weak bro.
I’m not so sure I do like our chances in extras.
Come on Gonzo.
Now I would expect a little more fan noise but no…
Just be careful Gonzo.
Aren’t all blown saves on the road?
Yup. I still think it was a good idea. If he could’ve just steered it towards second.
You think? The ball was hit kind of shallow but Kelly is fast…
No More, No More Bobby
Mitchell, it is my reasoned opinion that you are a whiney tool…. go back to your basement..
The Bird and Indian, I admitted I was wrong about LaRoche at least a week ago…
August 25th, 20099:58 pm
ok lets close her down
scared the shyt outta me… sweet swing…
Good job Gonzo!
Pirates CF just misjudged a flyball and now Phillies are leading
Nice Job Gonzo!
matt capps may be the worst reliever in baseball
N8: Perfect response.
That last out notwithstanding, Gonzo ripped through that inning.
KJ should get a chance here…leading off the 10th for the Braves.
COX IS A MORON! WHY WAS GARRETT NOT LIFTED FOR A PINCH RUNNER? GORECKI WAS ALREADY COMMITTED TO THE GAME, SO PUT IN A PITCHER TO RUN FOR GARRETT AND HAVE GORECKI REPLACE GARRETT. COX IS A STUPID FOOL!
David from Equatorial Guinea
Its 3:00 AM, West-Central Africa time. Work starts in four hours… GO BRAVES!
I bet dry erase board guy wrote WTF after that fail from matty lol
Jurrjens4NLCY – MFIKY blew one to Howard at home
“Should have pinch run for GA” – yeah, we have a lot of guys who can score from first on a flippin’ single
August 25th, 20099:59 pm
I like our chances! Padres can’t score and Gonzo just got Gonzo out.
Sweet moses… the Braves tie the game in the bottome of the ninth, and bloggers are STILL finding things to be negative about… Should have pinch-run for Anderson! Why is Diaz bunting? Blah blah blah it’s always the same crap from you people. If the Braves win (God forbid, right guys?) I can’t wait to see the complaints STILL rooooolll in.
Nice work Gonzo… Philly just took the lead in the 9th.
O yea and Hawpe just tied it up with a 2 run jack
Way to go Gonzy!
Phils lead 4-3 in the ninth. Rox are tied at 2.
They couldn’t pinch run for Anderson because they just burned the last guy they could use to play the outfield to pinch-run for McCann. That’s why Church being hurt and not on the DL sucks.
A walk off GS would be nice
August 25th, 200910:00 pm
I feel pretty good with the tie. Something tells me…..there are some forthcoming dramatics….from Kelly.
Decent job Gonzo.
Equatorial Guinea, eh? There’s a country you don’t see in the news every day.
Shamus Thacker: I didn’t see it so my bad. I’m just messing around with you because of your posts on the deadline. I’ve always been in love with Roachys breath of fresh air that hits my face when he swings.
Wtf herschel talker watches braves games? Dude called for a fork in like the first week of may.
KJ with a walk off…
Braves fan in Nebraska
I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed, but why bunt with two outs? Even if GA somehow scores before Diaz gets thrown out, the run doesn’t count…soooo what’s the logic? That Diaz gets a bunt single? Come on…Piss poor Bobby…
August 25th, 200910:01 pm
KJ gets a walk here
Why are people still monitoring the Phillies?
Are we the only team in baseball whose “heart of the order” bats 6-7-8?
don’t let Nort surpass you in pinch hitting tonight Kelly!!!
VJ–inconsequential now, yes, but IMO it was a smart move with Gorecki aleady in the game (he’s better in the field, too). I dunno. Didn’t matter in the end, no need to worry about it any further.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
