Eli "da truth'
May 31st, 201012:30 pm
i should’ve been first but can’t read yet.
May 31st, 201012:31 pm
Change Turner Field to Aaron Stadium
May 31st, 201012:32 pm
Let’s take 1st place today!!
May 31st, 201012:35 pm
Us vs. the NL East. Ugh!
Time to turn it around.
May 31st, 201012:36 pm
Longevity will be a big goal for Hanson today who has gone only two innings (rain delay), five innings and 4 2/3 innings in his three career starts vs. the Phils
May 31st, 201012:41 pm
How’s the weather look?
May 31st, 201012:43 pm
Time for the Braves to take over first.
Mixxo, get your tomahawk ready!
May 31st, 201012:45 pm
the chill bumps are starting already, soldiers are walking out onto the field….flag is being unfurled in center field
May 31st, 201012:46 pm
I wish I could be there for the Memorial Day game, but I am stuck in VA It’s alright, at least I can see the game on game day, even though it is not the same.
May 31st, 201012:47 pm
I’ll be watching from rainy wnc mountains. Go Braves!
May 31st, 201012:48 pm
P.S. Braves are wearing special white caps today for the occasion. Not a huge fan of the look
Hmmm; Booby actually started the A-team; Only questionable one is Yunel; but at least he plays spectacular defense.
McFann :Ô: :Ô:
Thanks for the new Blog, Ms. Rogers!
Wow…that Opening Ceremony must be something else! I love stuff like that.
May 31st, 201012:49 pm
I thought they were going to wear red hats with stars-and-stripes on the A?
May 31st, 2010
How’s the weather look?
Here itr is beautiful, cool breeze comming off of the Pacific, cool puffs of clouds floating byu..
Mauna kea and Mauna Loa are beautiful…oh the water is warm with nice breakers,,,
White hats? Ih…interesting…
May 31st, 201012:50 pm
Lets go Big Red! Shut them down Tommy!
May 31st, 201012:51 pm
I wish the Braves would be on ESPN.
May 31st, 201012:52 pm
Huh, anyone else notice that Werth is NOT in the Phils lineup today? Sweet!
Trey – Got it ready man, gameface is on big-time too!
All jacked up on Colombian (coffee) and ready to go!
mountain_jim – Love the rain in the WNC mountains!
May 31st, 201012:53 pm
All the Braves need now is that ol’ screaming indian on their sleeve!
May 31st, 201012:54 pm
They need a White jersey, blue cap and the red indian.
Trey – The game is on ESPN tomorrow night… At least that’s something!
May 31st, 201012:55 pm
Ok Folks this is a must win game!!
They Have Werth, Polanco, Rollins out of lineup, Ibanez is struggling as well. The Phillies as we know have been horrible the past week and are slumping big time. Blanton there worse starting pitcher is on the mound vs Hanson who is due for a good outing. Look for the Braves to be in 1st place in the standing going into tomarow!!!
May 31st, 201012:56 pm
Carrol9 = David Ross = backups we are lucky to have.
May 31st, 201012:57 pm
It must have been too cloudy for the parachuting and the flyover….but still the pre-game ceremonies were very touching.
Yuck! Not liking the white caps with the white uni’s. Just looks….off!
Dang, I have to wait another day before being able to see it. I really miss TBS- “The Braves Station”
I hope Nate gets on track. His bat could really come alive and push this lineup even further. Esco will come around, he seems to be getting more comfortable and having better approaches.
May 31st, 201012:58 pm
The Bravos look like Milkmen today. Too bad Melky’s on the pine.
May 31st, 201012:59 pm
Not digging the white caps either, but at least the Philthies have to wear them too.
I’m loving our chances today!! Go Braves!!
Chris from the Rock
Gload in the leadoff spot? That’s just downright weird. I know Victorino has been a key RBI guy this year, but he really should be in the leadoff spot. That’s thinking a little too outside-the-box.
May 31st, 20101:00 pm
Mixxo Right on!
…and I agree that they look like Milkmen.
May 31st, 20101:01 pm
This is definitely going to be the game of the year. Time to take up first and not look back.
Let’s beat the crap out of these phils!!!!!!!!
I don’t want to say how HUGE for a myriad of reasons this game is today, so I won’t.
May 31st, 20101:02 pm
Just like 1991 went from worst to first.
here we go Braves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! happy memorial day everyone, hope your enjoying it. I like the lineup.
May 31st, 20101:03 pm
Forgot the commas. Grammar police…..cut me some slack.
well the phils have been struggling and they got some hurt guys.
May 31st, 20101:06 pm
The braves need to BURY the phils today!get in there heads and roll!
Alright…time for first pitch!!
Let’s keep on keepin’ on, Braves!
Feels like opening day!!! Go Braves!!
May 31st, 20101:07 pm
Mixxo, oh come on, you know you need commas in your sentences. See, here, is, one, and, another, one.
Just kidding, but there are all the commas to make up for your last ones that the grammar police correct you with
i like the hats. yes, a bit of a milkman look, but not that bad. pretty nice, actually.
May 31st, 20101:08 pm
love the hats!
David Athens, Al
May 31st, 20101:09 pm
I like the hats too
is the weather up there threatening, pouring here in statesboro
May 31st, 20101:10 pm
Hoho — I like the Phils hat color better. I think the blue bill on the Braves is just too muted. The red stands out better. But I understand why they gave the red bill to the Phils. Oh well!
Huge game…..half empty building???? Typical Atlanta fans. Really sad.
come on Hanson
Looks like Hanson is having control issues again…
You CANNOT walk a player like Dobbs. Just a terrible mistake.
Hopefully Hanson will not struggle.
Stop me before I speak too soon but does Charlie Manuel’s line-up not look a hell of a lot like the Braves from last Sunday against the Pirates?
Ross Gload, Wilson Valdez and no Jason Werth? I’ll take that thank you very much.
That crowd looks kind of pathetic though. You’d expect something close to a full house on a day like today.
I do like them hats, I think I might get one!!!
walk the hitter batting 130. in front of there best guys makes alot sense, throw some strikes man u got guys behind ya.
May 31st, 20101:11 pm
Come on Tommy. Buckle down.
i would walk Howard no matter what, he kills us, even with man on first
JC from DR
Tommy needs to cut down on the walks… He’s giving up too many, is there something wrong with his throwing arm? Or is he pressing too much?
Ice Cold Beer!!!
May 31st, 20101:12 pm
Notice how the Phillies bats have gotten cold since the ‘ol binocular incident?……Just sayin’
I think Hanson is amped up
looks like he is aiming
May 31st, 20101:13 pm
he is throwing to many balls, stop trying to K everyone.
njbraves, I would be there if I was in Atlanta.
May 31st, 20101:14 pm
Man They’re making him throw alot. Settle down!
Pitch count already escalating here in the first…
Okay, maybe not a terrible crowd but they sound like they’re at the ballet.
As if any of them would ever go to the ballet.
I go all the time. It kicks ass.
Actually never been to the ballet. Just nervously typing nonsense.
FEAR, I am sure he will settle down. It is still very very early in the game.
May 31st, 20101:15 pm
Guess like I’m in the minority on the hats…it looks like Hanson is going to deliver milk in between innings
Not so fast
Stuck at work w/o a radio or TV. Anyone have a link to listen on-line
Same old approach for Hanson against the Phils. A lot of straight fastballs with a curveball mixed in. He’ll be out after 5 innings with a high pitch count again.
Walk the bases loaded?
eric the elder
I like the hats, too, but Heyward looks like a dufus in his.
May 31st, 20101:16 pm
Oh here we go.
jeffry d, I am sure Hanson will settle.
Pitch count going up….runners on corners. Come on, Hanson. Not exactly a stellar start!
What is the deal Tommy?
Come the F on.
here we go…awesome job.
wow…. here we go… Tommy will be done bfore 5 innings again today.
Hanson’s had some real trouble with command the last few times out.
May 31st, 20101:17 pm
Oh, now they’re going to start hitting? F*CK!
Glaus is really coming along as a defensive first baseman.
NICE DOUBLE PLAY!! Saved the run! YAHOO!!
That isn’t good.
Get somebody up Bobby!!!
OK….lets wait another inning….nice DP.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
