Also, I forgot to mention that our offense “cured” Brad Lidge on Friday.

Francoeur as a Met: .307/.332/.500 in 183 plate appearances.
McLouth as a Brave: .260/.344/.419 in 259 plate apperances.
They really have nothing to do with eachother. Just thought it was interesting……
My goodness that was a long break. Did they watch “Titanic” for the 7th inning stretch?
Steve, why so nervous? If the Braves could hit, you wouldn’t have to be. Now they’ll squander an excellent outing by JJ and break yer heart. If the Braves could hit, I’D be nervous.
For all the complaining the blog has done about being too left-handed -
Vs RHP: 40-43
Vs LHP: 28-18
Big inning for JJ.
Gotta keep it even so we can get to that pen.

DOB… Any place better in ATL for BBQ other than Fox Bros?
Don’t walk this dude
Unfortunate that you are a ‘Bama fan…I trust you are a Cali transplant?
thats right… braves gave JJ no run support on his last outing…
August 30th, 20099:53 pm
Time to pull JJ.
Quit walking Raul Ibanez.
Rob from SC
Nova Scotia Steve
I think Jurrjens is getting tired…thought he was last inning actually
If we can get out of this with no runs we will take the lead in the 8th. Promise. Crap we screwed.
Fudge. Not good.
Oh Chipper, you suck
We’re not getting out of this one
That was not good.
August 30th, 20099:54 pm
How do you not think a bunt is coming right there? 1-1 in the seventh?
Ballgame! Thanks Chipper. Words cannot describe how much I hate that man.
Gov Clinton Tyree
Chip is just killing us.
… and it begins. . .
Kotch woulda had that
Work some magic JJ
work out of it JJ..
Yet another error for Chipper Jones, eh?
August 30th, 20099:55 pm
Let’s have a little faith people.
Game over. . .
Garret is just killing us.
Now we’ll see the comments…
The Braves have fallen behind? The Braves have fallen apart.
Bring out the Loafy haters.
This inning is so effed up.
Wow, don’t we look terrible this inning.
Hakuna Matata(Wait 'Til next year)
christ chipper..thanks a lot
Couple of bad defensive plays right there.
Random, I told you
cabravesfan – ummm kinda
We need some more magic JJ.
Ouch. Between Chipper’s throw to the runner’s side of LaRoche Prado (where he couldn’t risk injury by sticking his arm out there) and Garret’s drop … that’s a tough way to lose, if that happens.
We just straight up sh!t the bed this inning.
August 30th, 20099:56 pm
can’t win em all
JJ deserved a better fate tonight — of course, nobody MADE him walk Ibanez.
D has caught up to the O in slumping
Back to reality………we just cant take advantage of “zhit”
That’s our loaf. Hits the skin, bring it in!
That was Prado that didn’t catch Chipper’s throw.
Speaking of Francoeurs butt cheeks I love devinely..My daddy spanked me often, then would turn around and say…Now do me sonny.
Nice catch Loafy and most here were up in arms over Reid playing center…..?
Prado was covering first when Chipper threw that.
I suppose I can forgive you then (and Roachy is out of the game…when did that happen??)
August 30th, 20099:57 pm
CAN’T walk Ibanez to lead off the inning. Just asking for trouble
I just lost a little faith.
I can’t believe the second runner scored. I thought there would at least be a play.
That was Diazesque out there by GA.
whatever retard ESPN’ers. that’s an error if ANYTHING is an error. it was in the glove
G/F just said, OK, now I’m going to bed because I know you’ll be in a bad mood….
OK, JJ broke my heart after that non-play by GA…why’d they hafta show him?
Good night, all. I’m going to bed ’cause I can’t watch us bleed out. Hope our boys can get out of this one and put a smile on my face tomorrow morning.
Loaf’s lack of speed or hustle just killed the Braves there
Ball should’ve been caught. But it’s not an error.
lol RHR, we’ve been playing that a lot lately.
nice k jj
August 30th, 20099:58 pm
if the ball is in the glove. it’s an error.
Well, I wanted to watch “Mad Men” anyway. As for Garret, I hate to say I told you so…that his fielding would cost the Braves some games in the stretch…but I told you so. Rosie O’Donnell could have gotten to that ball and she would have held on to it. And to no one’s surprise, Joe Morgan is convinced no other outfielder in the world could have gotten that ball.
Chipper is a liabilty most games of late.He just seems to be sleep-walking.Anyway, that error may be the end of any realistic chances of winning the division.
Loaf did the best he could, they’re right.
Kinda agree that Garret didn’t screw this inning up, our “leader” created this mess… and that leadoff walk.
Nova Scotia, Francoeur can have me anytime..My daddy spanked me often too,,then would turn around and say.. Now do me son.
Chipper can have his money for the next 3 years just please leave this team, you are killing the team. JJ is to blame as well, I mean you can’t give up 2 doubles to the worst player on their team, the fat little guat catcher. Playoffs? Seriously folks, stop talking about the playoffs, this team WILL NOT make the playoffs.
August 30th, 20099:59 pm
Well Hanson lost because he pitched 2 innings, gave up a homer, and the offense couldn’t at least tie the game. Makes sense that JJ would lose because of shady defense and not much offense either (i’m seeing a trend here)
Is it safe to refresh yet?
Ballgame. We lack strong defense, consistent power and pinch hitting capabilities. The Phillies can make great plays and get clutch hits.
It’s amazing that we are still in the race.
Chipper needs to either be moved to 1st or Left Field next year. Frank Wren needs to get someone who can make strong plays at first.
Also, Garret simply cannot make plays playing left. Neither Diaz nor Garret are capable of making plays in the outfield.
Can anyone explain to me why Larcoche wasn’t on first base there? With a bunt down the third-base line? Why was Prado covering?
Get the bats out.
LaRoche has got to come off the bag, make sure he catches that throw
Can’t re-sign Anderson. We need to get younger in LF
Sucks for JJ but you can’t walk people in this park so one run is on him. But like I said never really going going to win when you score one run in this place. This isn’t a place known for its pitching duels. Braves have got to score some runs. Chipper’s struggling and that just a fact right now. Need someone else to step up.
Alright JJ. Just gotta get one more.
OK- guess Roachy isn’t out but that definitely Prado that was covering first on the play…
DOB -Prado was covering first on the play
Guys those last two plays by Chipper and Loaf clearly shows why this is still a “young” man’s game.
at least Blanton is out of there
I’m so sick of seeing JJ losing games this way…if the braves do end up losing..with madson /lidge coming in, i have hope
August 30th, 200910:00 pm
if you cannot play defense and cannot hit, you do not deserve the post-season no matter how good your pitching is
Love that passion from Joe Morgan. If “Matt Dee-az” had dropped that ball, there would be no conversation about it.
Flippin Escobar should’ve run out to left and caught that ball on the track.
I got the game on still, but looking at Ana Ivanovic pictures is much more entertaining..
WIN THIS GAME!!!
Stupid Braves NEVER score when JJ pitches brilliantly!
K, put that inning behind us. Lets get the freaking bats working.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
