Mitchell, every manager in MLB uses their closer in this situation, tie game starting the 9th at home.
This game has been dramatic…I don’t know what to do
Qualls is gettable
Well, here’s hoping Hinske, Infante and MkLouth dont all go up trying to hit a homer to tie it.
Hinske, Infante and McLouth to bat against Chad Qualls. Come on Braves!

The same people griping about Wagner being brought on would have complained about not bringing Wagner in if Peter Moylan had just done the same thing.
If we lose then its on Bobby!
Where is NMB?
@Mitchell – I am wondering what all these people that consider themselves “true fans” do to get that designation? Have part ownership in the team? Wayne in UTAH has spent lots of $$ in Turner field I guess. Just because you are ALWAYS positive and settle for the mediocrity of the past 4 seasons doesn’t make you a “true fan.”
Thank god you weren’t alive in 1776 or we would still be ruled by the British! LOL!
Braves have to win this game.
i’m all for bringing in your best relief pitcher in a tie game in the 9th at home. give yourself a better chance to win in the bottom of the inning. i think it’s one of the rare cases where i agree with bobby’s strategy
Wayne in Utah
If I can answer for Mitchell…….YES!
His pitch selection is very predictable. Upton knew he was going to try another slider and he smoked it up the middle. He gave up the double on a fastball when he had just thrown several fastballs in a row to KJ. Poor pitch selection.
Mitchell won’t when he becomes a manager
Me neither. Just enjoy the ride. I’m sensing big things here.

Well, Qualls hasn’t been that good, so we’ll see.
rally cap on
Come On offense!
But if we lose we deserved it because of that baserunning error
In the Anti-Bobby Cave, grinning
DOWN ON THE FARM:
When in ROME:
OMG, SS MYCHAL JONES goes 2-4 with an RBI and run scored. And he is now sneaking up on the…………………….mendoza line ( .197 ). DAVID COLEMAN, a HOUSTON writer, says the HOUSTON ASTROS want JONES as their future, and are willing to give up BERKMAN in exchange. Where do the BRAVES sign? 2B MATT “BUCK” WEAVER also goes 2-4, driving in one and scoring a run as well. One of WEAVER’s hits is a double. Say, how old is this guy? Didn’t he play with JOE JACKSON in the past? Har,har.
Let’s see. BRETT DeVALL starts, goes 5.0 IP, surrenders seven hits, and five earned, one BB and four SO. A duo of middle reliefers continue the carnage, giving up three earned in 2.2 innings and ANDY WILSON closes with a 0.1 IP of one hit scoreless work. Whew, what a night.!
i’m really starting to like this hinske fella
Good time for Hinks first HR.
Rally Shots Coming!
May 14th, 201010:54 pm
hinske sucks… haha. How bout some small ball!
Shall we bunt here?
Righties hitting .393 against Qualls… go Infante! Split the gaps!
CT in AL
I just got it back too Bat, and now I’m kinda glad I missed the top half of the inning. but here’s hoping for another rally! Cue McFann’s Turtles again!
let omar swing, bobby
May 14th, 2010
Remember, there is no “I” in team. roto
but there is a “me” which amounts to the same thing
@Nolie – there is an ‘A” in there and here too.
Haha love it.
Come On “O”
May 14th, 201010:55 pm
safe at first
YESSS!!!! COME ON BRAVOS!!!!
Big hustle OMAR!!!!
YES WE GET A Break!!!
BamaDude @ CowCollege AL
YES YES !
Awesome “Safe” bunt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“The Magnificent 7 are warming up in the bullpen, and will be joining you right after Omar Infante hits a walk-off…”
That’s exactly what Infante was planning all along
Ball spun away from him….come on Braves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
give omar another 100 chances for that, he couldn’t do it again
I’ll finish in the a.m. NYTOL. Rob, quit taking notes. Just let it flow, man.
Might have to start purring at Omar too. Or at least add some r’s to the end of his name.
NO DP’s Please
I can Taste J-Hey Going all out again!
sometimes you just get lucky doing the fundamentals. Let’s win this thing.
May 14th, 201010:56 pm
Single works, too.
You bunt Nate here?
nate, move them over!
bunt again bobby!
Wagner will get the win tonight, not the save.
Another bunt here
I hope Roger Dorn was taking notes about hustling there
Melky on deck?
no double play!
Good ol’ Bobby and small ball. I luv it! He is such a great manager.
May 14th, 201010:57 pm
melky on deck
Wayne in Utah

Best to just stay quiet, and let others assume you don’t know shiite, than to post and confirm their beliefs
That’s right Wayne, I fall into the category of someone who does not drink the koolaid that so many of you do, so rather than allow me my opinion, you and others think it necessary to label me an idiot. But that is okay because I’m a realist. When this season ends, this team will be languishing in 4th or 5th place. Play some more make believe Wayne an see if that helps you sleep better.
Interesting to see if McLouth bunts here with, I think, Me[ndoza]lky on deck.
Good job Nate
Great small ball boys!!!
come on Melk man!!!
Come on Braves!
intentional walk? please!
Bunt! Bunt! Bunt!
good call 2nd & 3rd …1 out
In Melky we trust.

The Effing Melk-Dud!
COME ON PRADO!!!!!!!!!
Are the Diamondbacks aware that Melky is at the plate?
ok marteen no dp…get the ball in the air
juice those bases
OH NO! They have us just where they want us with a man on third and less than two outs
what? who in thier right mind would walk melky?
Walking Melky to face Prado………I know that’s what the book says to do, but still it seems ironic.
Fear the MelkDud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They know about Marteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen, right?
they are walking Melk to get to prado? I’ll take that all day.
glad to see them walking melky. i’ll take my chances with prado.
Good they are walking him!
Melky on deck?? Kill me now.
Wait, they’re putting him on? What are they thinking? Good God, if Cox did something like this, the ajc website would cease to exist.
Alright – deep fly ball will do. Oh wow IBB. Someone needs to go tap on Melky’s shoulder and tell him what that is. Alright Prado ,deep fly pleeeeeaaaase.
wild pitch, HBP .. something!!!
Come on Milkman!
May 14th, 201010:59 pm
We feel good about our chances here. Bases loaded, one out, infield in… Come on Prado!

Prado TIME Hell Yeah!

Lift and separate!
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
