It anit a stretch today Carroll.
The boys are knockin the ball hard and deep, that’s what she said.
Blanton looking sharp early
T for Texas
Joe Simpson on Chipper’s HR: “The Old Grey Mare she ain’t what she used to be…but she’s still got a few trots left in her.”
Joe is the best in baseball.
May 31st, 20101:28 pm
Suffice it to say that Joe Blanton isn’t fooling anybody right now. He’s lucky to have gotten any outs thus far.
let’s crush one eric!
Brave4life- 1995 all over again
Man, Braves came out swinging today
Brian denied of another would-be Citizens Bank Park homerun.
Eric’s about to hit one out of the stadium.
haha we will take it!
base hit hinske!!!!!!!!!! 3-0 braves!!!!!!!!!!!!
SWEEET My man Hinske!!!
BamaDude @ CowCollege AL
EH w/ the RBI single YES
Hinske does something with the bat all the time, doesn’t he? Nice.
Braves mean business
May 31st, 20101:29 pm
Joe Blanton, you are awesome!
Keep ‘em coming.
Steve from OH
Someone tell Glaus to unhitch the piano he’s carrying behind him…way to go Hinske!
McFann :Ô: :Ô:
Man we are going for the KO early
So, the Braves were already robbed of two extra base hits, yet are still up 2-0?
I;m liking the crowd at the Ted this afternoon. Whose says Braves fans don’t show up?
We would have 4 runs in the philthies minipark
Feels so good!!
JC from DR
Hinske!!! Im loving this team!!!
I hope this leads to a 15-3 Braves win!
HINSKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!! great first inning!!!!!!!!!!!!
WOOHOO!!!! Go Braves
Just what we need to do…..put some pressure on their cold offense.
T for Texas — LOVE that comment!!
May 31st, 20101:30 pm
Thanks Joe, I just said that.
Just another series huh?
Com’on Esco! Show me some pop!
We could have had more if Heyward was on base
Even if we get Esco on base McLouth is up next
nice 1st inning.
May 31st, 20101:31 pm
T for Texas – You betcha. I like Joe Simpson.
that homer by Chipper snapped a streak of 37 games and 118 at-bats without a homer for him
Tommy, 1-2-3 please.
that is a hell of a start to this game!..and here I thought we might be done 1 at the top.
May 31st, 20101:32 pm
ok just bean victorino
Bartholomeeeew (Bat) Masterson
Sweeeeet First inning…. play some D and get some more runs
May 31st, 20101:33 pm
GREAT start!!! Let’s keep it up all the way untill bottom 9.
But you just háve to feel for KK.
Now I’m a believer in the Chipper resurgence. 6 hits in his last 3 games. To thinjk the only problem was he needed to alter his batting stance
Happy to see that Polanco isnt playing today
May 31st, 20101:34 pm
damn hanson. another walk
COME ON, HANSON!
What the F is wrong with Hanson?!?!?!?!
Hanson cant walk off the lead off man
Tommy, you gotta be kidding me.
Hanson is starting to irritate me with his struggling.
eric the elder
Isn’t “finding my release point” something that’s supposed to be done in the pre-game warmups?
walk with a 3-0 lead…god Tommy.
Personally, I like the white hats on the Braves. Sort of a turn of the (19th) century look. They look dumb on the Phils, with their gray away unis.
God, aren’t we all just praying for Chip to muster some of his old self, if only for one last season? That homer was soul-cleansing.
May 31st, 20101:35 pm
Hanson has GOT to ‘fix’ whatever is going on with him…quick, fast and in a hurry!! Get some control, boy!!
eric, have you ever pitched? Sometimes, the release point just don’t want to be found…
For Christ’s sake, throw a f’n strike
The Braves do in the first inning what they failed to do in 6 and two thirds for KK yesterday.
May 31st, 20101:36 pm
Yank him. Or someone go out to talk to him for christ sakes.
is something wrong with hanson’s mechanics? he seems to be walking guys a lot more and pitching right down the middle
You can’t just let the Phillies back into this game, Hanson.
Buckle down and pitch! At least make them hit the ball…
During the Braves’ 9-game skid, there were Phillies’ fans on the Braves.com site posting some comments, saying ”they were afraid of the Braves this year because this is a good team with a great potential that was going through a bad break, but if hot, they would become a *great threat* for the Phils”
Here we are!!
May 31st, 20101:37 pm
Hanson sure has not looked like himself these last few starts. KWIM?
I feel kind of bad for Hanson for his struggles.
he is just trying to K everyone, thats all it is..trying to be to fancy.
I’d almost rather see Acosta out there right now.
May 31st, 20101:38 pm
At least Hanson is keeping the ball outside.
The official score keeper at Turner Field is brutal. Especially, hard on Braves players as I see it. I thought Glaus’ AB could have been scored either way, but the Mac double that was ruled an E-9 last homestand was ridiculous. Yes, I know I am preaching to the choir.
Come on Mitchell.
May 31st, 20101:39 pm
Is Victorino the biggest PITA in Braves history?
This is where you’d like to have Medlen in the bullpen.
There’s obviously something wrong.
Blahhhhh…this is not fun to watch.
I’d almost rather see Acosta out there right now
Tommy’s done folks. DO something soon Bobby.
coaching visit please?
It took Hanson a few innings last time out to locate his pitches, I think he will be fine
Time for a chat…….
Crap~! Another walk…not good, Tommy!!
Gotta start thinking about placing Hanson in the bullpen when Jurrjens is ready. He has been awful in May.
May 31st, 20101:40 pm
Maybe Roger should spit on him? It helped Kramer get going.
Ok, there’s seriously something wrong with Tommy.
let’s get the DP!
Tommy hasn’t looked right for a few games now…even that Marlins game was a struggle.
Sorry Bartholomeeeew (Bat) Masterson but this is beginning to get hard to watch.
May 31st, 20101:41 pm
Jimmy Joe, You have got to be kidding. right? Put Hanson in the pen?
Everybody to the pen!!
They can step at the plate and not move the bat off their shoulders, and Tommy wouldn’t be able to get a single out…
can o’ corn
well good an out. no advance for the runners
Time to get someone up. This kid is Rick Ankiel.
Baseball 101 (still the same name)
Yeah Chipper’s power is gone..he hit that one out with pretty much a one – armed swing..
2 IP. 127 pitches. Atta boy
Double play Tommy.
Hanson will turn it around
You must be the stupidest person i have met. When a kid that is in his sophomore year has a few bad starts you don’t just pull him out of the rotation and and stick him in the pen.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
