9-1 Bravos! It’s a rain delay, top 9th right now. You missed a good one.
Falcons D wasn’t looking too good when I was watching in the first half.
Giants up 3-0 and threatening to blow it open…
DOB, whats the word on the game?
a trade 'genius' with some common sense
August 29th, 200910:42 pm
Sign Nady, let Hudson walk. No sense on trading Vazquez when you could probably sign Nady for a bargain since he’s coming off a season ending injury. Resign LaRoche and have Heyward as your new RF and that’s that.
August 29th, 200910:43 pm
5-0…man on third…. 1 out…
Giants blow it open
August 29th, 200910:44 pm
I’m giving you my “mean glare” right now. There’s no emoticon that can match it so imagine it in your head.
August 29th, 200910:45 pm
The Falcons’ D has looked awful tonight.
That was really you making that trade proposal, wasn’t it?
Giants gonna win.
Braves continue to tease
Yeah, I’m just messin.’ I’ve been flipping back & forth. Big time impressed by Loaf’s rocket shot! That thing looked like it’d hurt somebody.
N Nine (Norton 2010)
August 29th, 200910:46 pm
Jurrjens4NLCY I could have told you about his assets without looking it up. That being said, Cox will give him many chances to earn that extension for next season. How about reporting a nice profile on your blog? I’ll visit it, just let me know!
ha i thought nolie too.
Giants look as good in SF as they did bad in Denver…
The number one rule in jokes is that they have to be funny…
You’re not making friends around here, are ya?
Bang this Thing! I’m assuming Victory. You all can blame me if we lose.
August 29th, 200910:47 pm
So that’s what happened to KT…
August 29th, 200910:48 pm
How about reporting a nice profile on your blog? I’ll visit it, just let me know!
You want me to post Norton’s report on my blog?
oh i dont know, thats just what i heard.
August 29th, 200910:49 pm
keyfargo Yunel would kick you azz down to Cuba. What you have something against him? Why don’t you root for your local team, the Marlins…You and Lou Vales would make best friends.
What are you talking about?
I have Rob from SC, McFann, you, N Nine, Wayne, and my best friend Soph….
Rob from SC
August 29th, 200910:50 pm
Are we going to finish this game?
I’ve got your back
Oh. Well, I can see that happening. She was kinda touchy-feely.
Also, one of Soriano/Gonzo is wearing another team’s jersey in 2010, more than likely Soriano(just a huntch). Anyhow, trade KJ and a decent minor leaguer for a good RP and have Medlen and Moylan set up Gonzo.
August 29th, 200910:51 pm
Colorado’s getting beat 5-0. Braves would be 3-1/2 games off the wild-card lead, with 33 games to play.
i liked her.
I’m am… And its very threatening…
Sleep tight Soph!
August 29th, 200910:52 pm
I ain’t nobody’s friend, pal!
I liked Katy Temple, too and I don’t like the new girl so far
August 29th, 200910:53 pm
BFF’s 4-ever JJ. (channeling my inner-teenager again).
Don’t you dare! No! We all said the Braves were not ready for the playoffs! Oh NO DOB is creating “hope” within me, in the Braves…
Make it stop!
Wait, there’s a new girl on SportSouth?
August 29th, 200910:54 pm
Thanks for looking G Jones up. I like the guy a lot and with Pittsburg having shown that they will trade, I’ve been following what he’s done. Quite impressive despite his age.
The rockies were like 7 games back on sept 1st in 07 and they went to the world series. I’m just sayin…
I love the emotion Zito is showing
I liked KT, as well. I certainly liked her better than Fred Hickman. I liked Jerome in the studio with Ron Gant. Sometimes when I hear Brian Jordan talk, I want to bang my head on the wall…
We’ll probably be 4.5 back after tomorrow, Jurrjens4NLCY.
That’s kinda the way this works.
August 29th, 200910:55 pm
AWW, we’d be even cooler if you agree Norton needs to lead our depleted bench.
Norton for 2010
She’s cute, Katie, but she needs to polish up her delivery some. Katie had great delivery. I’m sure new girl will get better.
If the Braves don’t resign MFIKY I hope he goes to the AL.
Katy, not Katie.
August 29th, 200910:57 pm
back before Clemens was proven to be a dbag.
August 29th, 200910:58 pm
The Braves are due to go on an eleven-game winning streak in September like the Rockies in ‘07. Why? The Braves have been a soul-crushingly downtrodden franchise ever since 2008.
That’s it. Game about to be called.
“Jose .. this is a movie we’ve been watching for the last three months,” Guillen said. “I wish I had another choice besides Jose out there.”
I don’t remember who posted the Ozzie Guillen story earlier, but there is no doubt in my mind that Javy isn’t sad to be playing for Bobby instead of Ozzie.
August 29th, 200910:59 pm
WHAT? All this Katie Temple talk w/o Mitchell? Naw.
August 29th, 200911:00 pm
Do you want him elected to the Senate or something?
Well JJ has good number in Philly hopefully we win tomorrow and then go to Florida and show them who’s boss. Good work tonight fellas. CHOP CHOP!
WE SHOCKED THE WORLD!
You seem like an old grandma lion, and I’m like the new lion trying to learn the ways of a lion and you recent me at first, but I win over your heart, until you die, then I must avenge you, so Soph and I go out into the jungle and overcome adversity and defeat the deadly Paul Lentz lion. Then all the lions live happily for ever no longer afraid and Soph and I raise a new lion named “McLion O’Fann” and she lives on to continue our proud lion name… Until she is challenged by a new lion and you contact her from the grave and build confidence within her…
August 29th, 200911:01 pm
McCann just might be the franchise player. I sure hope so, and I know McFann does.
August 29th, 200911:02 pm
He already does…
And His Next Words Are . . .
Paul Lentz (August 29th, 2009 8:34 pm): “In big games, our offense simply does not show up.”
Paul Lentz (August 29th, 2009 9:55 pm): “I smell Moylan’s ERA rising tonight.”
And His Next Words Are . . .
“They’ll never call this game. The Phillies’ sense of urgency will demand that they be given their full allotment of 27 outs.”
August 29th, 200911:03 pm
Braves win!! somebody get the bullpen a paddleboat
August 29th, 200911:04 pm
Game. Good night for our boys. And who said Lee was unbeatable? They are eating crow tonight. Well, gonna shut it down for the night. Have a good one everybody!
keyfago Bless your sweet little heart, you’re a good person, just hard for you to express it. I understand you were beaten as a little chubby kid. We’ll comfort you anytime you need. BTW the door is
August 29th, 200911:05 pm
You seem like an old grandma lion
You callin’ me old?
I called it!
No one ever eats crow here.
August 29th, 200911:06 pm
JJ’s been smoking again…
Steve from OH
I was just gonna pull up his 8:34 post and ask him to comment on it, but I like yours better…
Not old, but rather, “Ole”
August 29th, 200911:07 pm
I did. Once. I said I didn’t think the Braves should draft Minor so high and they did. It was bitter.
August 29th, 200911:08 pm
Hehe. Thanks but no need…
Lawl they have a ‘post season tickets’ thing on the braves.com homepage. Someone get that crap off there. How embarrassing.
August 29th, 200911:09 pm
August 29th, 2009
I ain’t nobody’s friend, pal!
Step away from the alcoholic beverage son.
Did I miss a nasty breakup between N Nine and keylargo somewhere along the way?
August 29th, 200911:10 pm
Night! good game tonight, hopefully Chipper can get things going
August 29th, 200911:11 pm
You know the part I left out between the JJ lion and the Soph lion?
lol RHR, I read your earlier post about how you hoped MFIKY would go to AL if the Braves didn’t resign him. Initially, I thought you meant Alabama and he’d come live with you or something.
August 29th, 200911:12 pm
Steve from OH (August 29th, 2009 11:06 pm) –
Alcohol and weed is nice, but nothing inspires just a post like acid…
August 29th, 200911:14 pm
I already have my World Series tickets for Games 3 and 4 against, wait, let me read the ticket…the New York Yankess at Altanta-Futon Country Stadium. I can’t wait.
Jurrjens4NLCY (August 29th, 2009 11:06 pm): ” ‘You callin’ me old?’
“Not old, but rather, ‘Ole’ “
August 29th, 200911:15 pm
Instead of calling someone old, you should just say they have an inveterate spirit.
JJ, you’ve been smoking crack again. Besides that’s not Soph lion – it’s JJ lion and N Nine (Norton 2010) lion. I hope you both live happily ever after.
He tried to sell me a ticket for Game 5 at Tooner Field, but I knew that was a scam.
August 29th, 200911:16 pm
If this Rockies-Giants score holds up, the Braves will be 3 1/2 out of the Wild Card (3 back in the loss column).
However, after tomorrow, the Rockies have a pretty easy schedule in the upcoming 13 games. Monday is an off day for them. Then they host the Mets for 3 games, Arizona for 3 games, and the Reds for 4 games. After that, they head to San Diego for 3 games before the schedule gets a little tougher with 3 games more games in San Francisco.
Sure, the Mets, Diamondbacks, Reds and Padres can play spoiler. However, with 10 of those games at home, it the Rockies should have no problem with having a winning record in those 13 games.
Meanwhile, the Braves have 4 games in Florida, followed by hosting Cincy for 3 games, back on the road for 3 games in Houston, and 3 games in St. Louis. Our 13 game stretch is a little tougher than the Rockies. They have 10 at home, while we only have 3.
The next 2 weeks will go a long ways to determining the fate of our season. If we can win our games, then perhaps a little pressure will affect the Rockies. Not exactly a guarantee, but at least it gives us hope.
August 29th, 200911:17 pm
Besides that’s not Soph lion – it’s JJ lion and N Nine (Norton 2010) lion. I hope you both live happily ever after.
Oh no no no. Thats Soph lion, Grrrrr!
lol Chop Chop.
That was really you making that trade proposal, wasn’t it? (RG)
nope twerent I. Not sure that Freeman is a stud though. Little early to be positive. Kinda leaning that way some
August 29th, 200911:18 pm
Where did Mitchell go? I wanted him to shed some positive light on our victory tonight. He did a pretty good job today.
August 29th, 200911:20 pm
btw, in case anyone missed the red sox move of the week, it was the acquisition of joey gathright from the o’s.
Soph – Falcons won!
I know !!
Just got back from walking the English Bulldog on that note too. She’s also happy. Good night all around.
August 29th, 200911:21 pm
LaRoche is actually right hip, not hammy. Been bothering him a few days, said he hopes he wakes up tomorrow able to play but doesn’t know how long it’ll take….
McLOUTH UPDATE: TOOK himself out of game tonight after feeling discomfort it same spot in hamstring when he went for a ball in gap. They think it’s only a mild strain, but will know more tomorrow after the training staffs of Atlanta and Mississippi teams talk.
Zito really has started looking a lot better… Trying for a complete game shutout against the Rocks…
August 29th, 200911:23 pm
Until she is challenged by a new lion and you contact her from the grave and build confidence within her…
You know? (JJ)
C’mon now RG that has just got to melt your stony heart. Give ol’ JJ a big blog hug and make friends.
Dammit on McLouth. Hope it’s nothing serious.
Hope Roachy feels better soon too.
Lost the shutout…still…good game from Zito. Very impressive.
August 29th, 200911:27 pm
And Clox was going to put Carlyle in to pitch the bottom of the 8th. The man is null & void!
Ok, I’m going to bed, I have to get up at 2 o clock my time… G Night all,
Good night Soph!
August 29th, 200911:28 pm
August 29th, 200911:29 pm
And Clox was going to put Carlyle in to pitch the bottom of the 8th. The man is null & void! (EBEN)
and if he put a better pitcher into a 9-1 game you and the rest here would be screaming about wasting somebody useful.
August 29th, 200911:32 pm
Damn Rocks…won’t go quietly. 2 straight singles with 2 outs….still 5-1.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
