Dang! So close.
Okay, Yunel, make up for that one!
September 23rd, 20097:58 pm
Why not review to make sure? If it’s there – why not use it? Geez.

Braves Manager Bobby Cox Agrees to Contract Extension
The Atlanta Braves announced today that they have agreed to terms with manager Bobby Cox on a one-year contract extension through the 2010 season and that the team’s entire coaching staff will be brought back next year.
PLEASE TELL ME THIS IS A CRUEL JOKE.
Why doesn’t Garrett get pulled for not standing on 2nd there?? Should have been there easy but walked down the line. Just shows Bobby has something against Yunel.
C’mon Adam….knock a hoe-ma
September 23rd, 20098:01 pm
I love you, Daniel Murphy.
Actually you didn’t read it all, it says afters Bobby leaves Chip Carey will take over in his place…
And get’em Laroche, kid is second-half gold boi, second-half gold
September 23rd, 20098:02 pm
I am disgusted by that Mamas and Papas daughter. Why on earth would she tell that stuff now? Oh wait…I know. To sell her book. Sickening. I hope it tanks.
Agreed in some ways…but we haven’t had a leadoff hitter since Furkey left…
If we could get Crawford on the cheap side since he’s having an off year, it might me a good investment to sign him to a two deal if the rays decline his option(Thawkin)
Yeah I understand where you are coming from I just don’t agree much but that’s cool. Mainly it’s just too early to know what will happen since he might get renewed there. I wouldn’t hate getting him at all, but he’s another LHed hitter and overpriced for what the Braves other needs are IMO.
come on KJ, can’t just sac this time, dude.
Ok, Kell Bell.
Let’s go, Buddy!
September 23rd, 20098:03 pm

Kelly Johnson Fan Club
Damn. Oh well, he’ll get ‘em next time.
September 23rd, 20098:04 pm
Oh, I undertsand…that was a base hit/RBI for LaRoche, but—
September 23rd, 20098:05 pm
Great quotes, DOB. Did I miss the quotes from Yunel or was that one of those times that you didn’t want to interpret the body language / Spanish for us?
jeffrey d Pete?
Hurts my brain to try and even wrap my head around that Mamas & Papas story.
I think We Need an End of Season Party at D.O.B.’s Pad!
If anyone agrees, then Give me a Hell Yeah!!!
D.O.B. and Carroll can Supply all the Goose…just everyone needs to show up…!
Make the event on Facebook D.O.B.

Just a brief message to everyone who has declared here that they are through with the Braves because Cox is coming back: KEEP YOUR WORD!
You have no idea how much more entertaining this blog would be without your tired whining. Every manager does things to win games and does things to lose games, so it especially amuses me to read people noting games that he has caused them to lose. No other manager has blown games? And he has done nothing to win games? Just go away.

Dare I say Lowe all over again???? Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Just a brief message to everyone who has declared here that they are through with the Braves because Cox is coming back: KEEP YOUR WORD! (rico)
we can only hope. I have no problem with those who don’t want him other than to think thjey’re doo doo heads, but the constant barrage of negativity gets old. and them we get somebody claiming we think he’s a god just because we defend him sometimes. The ratio of hate to acceptance posts on here is about 50 to one.
Go get him Bobby…..I KNEW they brought him back too early dammit!
Nice throw Mac.
He looked out to me…
September 23rd, 20098:13 pm
Come on, Timmy, settle down now. Don’t let this one get away from you. We need the sweep.

September 23rd, 20098:14 pm
I couldn’t agree with your more. That’s all I had to hear this mornning that the Mommas and Papas were doing their daughters! It’s no wonder I’ve quit watching the news!
Cox for Prez
September 23rd, 20098:15 pm
KJ gonna hit a homer tonight!
September 23rd, 20098:16 pm
And how about McDowell, better than Duncan? I think so.
September 23rd, 20098:17 pm
September 23rd, 20098:19 pm
McFann is really wanting something to cheer on tonight I think
Way to hang in there, Timmy!
Good work by Huddy. Sign that man.
Cox for Prez–
I always do!
September 23rd, 20098:20 pm
Second and third, no outs, and gets out of it. Nice escape job, Huddy.
September 23rd, 20098:24 pm
I was sorry to see BravesFanInWisc take his leave from us until 2011 – it was quite a change from his daily posts that we would not see here again until 2010…
September 23rd, 20098:26 pm
Nominations for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame came out today. Two that interest me are Laura Nyro — one of the few authentic geniuses rock n has produced (check out Eli and the Thirteeth Confession) — and the Stooges.
September 23rd, 20098:27 pm
Besides, I figure with all the flack people give BMac for “not blocking pitches”, someone oughta give him credit those many times when he does block one. I mean, people are always on here praising ssoR when he makes a play…
September 23rd, 20098:28 pm
Huddy…..OWNED by Frenchie!
Aww, I miss Jeff’s fast-pitch league bloopers up the middle, good times, good times
September 23rd, 20098:29 pm
Kelly Johnson Fan Club’s theme song
Timmy, Timmy, Timmy. This is not good.
Yo soy el mejor torpedero de los jóvenes en la Liga Nacional, pero mi manager, la grasa, el viejo Bobby Cox no le gustan los cubanos (o los negros, para el caso).
Él me trata muy mal. Pero el viejo, a lo largo de la colina, la HGH ex teniendo Chipper Jones puede caminar a la primera base en un terreno fuera, y es un coño. Él sólo juega cuando quiere. Todos en el equipo no lo respeta. Pero aún Bobby no hace nada para él.
Ahora, hoy, me enteré de que él va a estar aquí un año más. No es bueno.
Me pregunto si los Nacionales de Washington me querrías.
Huddy = Schneider-owned
Schneider even LOOKS like a ballplayer.
September 23rd, 20098:30 pm
Tim, you need three consecutive Ks here. Damn, son.
Tim’s fallen apart Bobby. Get Him!!!
September 23rd, 20098:31 pm
Bobby’s gonna be back one more year, and one more year only. Does this give the Braves in upper hand on some FA’s? There are alot of guys out there who want the opportunity to play for Cox.
Yunel, learn a useful language like Ethiopian or something!
September 23rd, 20098:33 pm
Nominations for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame were released today. Among them are Laura Nyro (Eli and the Thirteeth Confession proved to me that she was one of the few authentic geniuses the genre has produced) and, playing yang to Laura Nyro’s ying: The Stooges.
DOB, please use all your journalistic clout to ensure these two get in before ABBA, also nominated this year (God knoweth how or why.)
Adda Boy Huddy
Adda Boy Huddy!
September 23rd, 20098:34 pm
Bases loaded and 1 out, can he work out of trouble again?
September 23rd, 20098:36 pm
D O B gettin’ all avant garde on us with the Perry Ferrell stuff.
Is he going to be spinning that at “the party?”
Cox for Prez
Su un idiota y tiene un pene pequeño
September 23rd, 20098:37 pm
Not with KJ screwing that one up, churchman
He absolutely sucks. Thats why we have a better record with Prado huh?
KJ, COME ON!!!
I like Kelly, but damn, we shoulda had that one.
Hudson just threw his clothes in the trunk.
Don’t know why Huddy’s giving KJ the stink-eye. He just booted one himself to keep the inning alive.
Secure that D
Braves have a lot of starting pitchers that don’t miss bats. Get better defensively.
KJ is tanking his trade value on purpose, this is sabatoge! Quick, someone call Chuck Norris, only a Texan can kill a Texan! It’s like werewolves and silver bullets only with drunks with anger management issues!
September 23rd, 20098:39 pm
Generous call at first.
Much better job by Kelly that time!
I understand as part of Bobby’s extension, the entire coaching staff will be back next season. Did he include Norton in the deal too?
Thanks for all the quotes DOB.
September 23rd, 20098:40 pm
Kelly Johnson’s glove still sucks, and Bobby Cox playing him against a right-hander is yet another reason, he has got to go!!
Kelly Johnson is clearly a down grade of Martin Prado…
To all the loser Melts fans in attendance at Bailout Ballpark, Ho Sit Down!!!
I would’ve loved to say that 10 years ago when Chipper was on his way to the MVP
Can anyone believe he stole over 20 bases 10 years ago…?
September 23rd, 20098:41 pm
I will get you on to that old Mariah and R Kelly “Bank On It”
Ditto for D.O.B
Thank you KJ for making the job of getting rid of you, easier.
Yunel why would you want to leave for the Nationals?
September 23rd, 20098:42 pm
Michael Buble? Thats the first Verizon music person who has talent…
Lets go here, Mac. Send it outta here
September 23rd, 20098:43 pm
Mac, just because you are at a season high on Ks, you don’t have to keep doing it
DANGIT!! Why are you swinging at all this cr—-
This is the LAST time I EVER get excited about a pitching matchup AGAIN!!
September 23rd, 20098:44 pm
My thoughts exactly, bravesgrl4life.
September 23rd, 20098:45 pm
Wow- did McFann almost kind of swear?? Poor girl must be really mad!
September 23rd, 20098:46 pm
DOB – Did you book the Creedence show at Turner?
September 23rd, 20098:47 pm
cabravesfan – I just hope she never hears you during a football game…
September 23rd, 20098:48 pm
Bobby coming back is one thing but please tell me Kelly Johnson will not be on this team in 2010.
Love this Buble tune. I get a little misty too.
Bank on it.
September 23rd, 20098:49 pm
Still pluggin’ that dang Facebook page.
I won’t be swayed!
Wow, Garret put in motion. I don’t think we’ve seen that this season.
September 23rd, 20098:50 pm
I have had plenty of practice censoring myself when I watch football games with my 2 year old nephew
September 23rd, 20098:51 pm
Yo no. Bobby y Frank se me cambian a ellos para Adam Dunn.
I am…like, seriously…I can’t take these K’s…Not against Pelfrey! Before tonight Bmac had just one K against Pelfrey in 23 career ABs…1 K in 23 career ABs!! And 2 already tonight…
New career-high is now at 76. Need a lotta doubles to make up for that.
September 23rd, 20098:54 pm
I wanna Yankees tatt!!!!!!!
Even though that was a Mets tattoo, I like it. I want to get me a Braves tattoo…
September 23rd, 20098:55 pm
I’m disgusted with McGuirk, Schuerholz Wren etal keeping Cox around. I knew it would happen, but I’m still disgusted nevertheless.
Ditto on MacKenzie Phillips’s book. A junkie will do anything for the habit. If it’s true, it’s…. well, disgusting. If it’s not, it’s still disgusting.
I’m considering becoming a Braves hater until they become serious about winning a WS.
September 23rd, 20098:56 pm
He called that a strike on BMac in the second…
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
