for my fantasy team, Manny needs some hits, for my Braves who come before my fantasy team..strike his bootay out.
June 3rd, 201010:27 pm
Oh my God. Yunel, are you kiddng me?
Kemp definitely needs to stop hitting it to Yunel.
Ice Cold Beer!!!
Signed up to late for fantasy baseball, now I’m really missin’ it.
Lee, you should not wish injury upon anyone, I do wish he was out of the lineup though.
JC from DR!
Rob from SC – And that would be a good reason for him to stop swinging at it, unless he wants a Larry Wayne Jones season ending finger surgery
eric the elder
Any chance McLouth will just tip his cap before stepping into the batter’s box?

Furcal has nothing on our shortstop
Just finished voting all of my alloted votes as well as my husband’s emails too.
I want to stay up to watch, but we didn’t get home from the game on Tuesday night until 1:15 a.m., and I’m still sleep deprived. But, it’s been a good sleep deprived! Wouldn’t change it for a second!
Greg in TN
Excellent work by Kris, working around the Ethier double
good inning, good inning..tack on
Hey VJ. cab watching her Lakers?
June 3rd, 201010:29 pm
No worries w/Manny. He can’t hit w/out his dope.
Chipper’s Life before, during and after an AB:
Before the AB:
Chipper to himself: Ok Chip, remember, do not swing at anything if possible, specially at those outside pitches, wait for the walk. Remember it.
During the AB:
Chipper to himself: Ok old man, dont swing at anything outside, you know what’s gonna happen… here it comes, remember, don’t do it… here… aaah *makes a weak, one-handed, short, unbalance swing, hitting a tapper/grounder right at the second baseman for the out/4-6-3 DP*.. Damnit!
After the AB:
Chipper to trainers: I think I hurt my ring finger.
Chipper: Well, while hustling (smirk) down the line I felt some pain in my superior oblique muscle, I tried to stop running and that’s when I pulled left my groin.
Trainers: I thought you said you hurt your finger, how was that?
Chipper: I dont know, I tried to signal you guys with my hand to come check me out, and the finger just broke.
booo … Ethier ends Medlen’s shot at a perfecto
i was feelin this one too
Heyward has been cold, we need him to heat up.
After Skip and Pete left us braves fans listening to Chip, I tell you, if it werent for DOB (and Carroll), I would’ve changed allegiances.
June 3rd, 201010:30 pm
Personally speaking, Manny looks like sh!t with those nasty looking dreads of his. That’s just gross.
Ahhh…nothin better than some music and a good baseball game.
Yunel has little to no patience haha.
Sopheeee – yeah, right – actually I’m hogging the computer and scoring tests while bouncing to blog – she is enjoying Vin and hissing at the very thought of the Lakers…
.178 for the year
June 3rd, 201010:31 pm
Ugh, He looks like Lil wayne.
I hope I even make it to the 4th inning.
Mr. Turnip-Green Jeans
I’d love to see Medlin start full-time.
BTW, why haven’t they tried plugging the oil gusher with Joran Van der Sloot? Might not work, but definitely worth a try.
good boy Mclouth
June 3rd, 201010:32 pm
Yeah me too, I gotta wake up early tom.
Hey DOB, I just heard your interview with Charley Steiner via XM radio on my interminable drive home from work (1 1/2 hours — wall-to-wall parking lot all the way across the lake). Great interview! (Although you didn’t sound exactly like I expected. But when I thought about your picture, the voice matched. Funny how that works.)
Anyway, you gave good interview. Nice going!
With Nate’s speed, he should do 20 push ups in the batter’s box when he pops up like that. What a waste
Nate at least hit the ball, didn’t go very far but he at least hit it
Nice upper-cut popup McLouth. Flatten that swing already!
maybe Nathaniel needs to take a trip upstate to a farm, to run around with all the other people who arent hitting right now..free open space to run around with the pitchers.
Ice Cold Beer!!! I have work in the morning too, but I will be up until midnight watching.
I’ve heard that story about Lou Gehrig. Couldn’t remember what stadium that was in.
What’s with these freakin’ pop-ups?
McLouth is an automatic out
June 3rd, 201010:33 pm
Where are the TP HATERS at now????…………..Exactly
Rob from SC
JC from DR!
I agree. He is swinging at a lot of pitcher quality strikes
can Medlen or Hudson play CF? May be an upgrade offensively
Medlen > Nate
Go ahead, little bit!
Who hates toilet paper??
He walked Medlen with two out? Wow.
Andruw hit a home run tonight. The slow march to 400 continues.
June 3rd, 201010:34 pm
Come on Kris. Take a walk.
Nate has to hate batting 8th. After his futility, the pitcher often gets on.
Let’s go Martin.
Medlen looks better at the plate than Nathaniel.
I hear Braves fans!
June 3rd, 201010:35 pm
that fan chirping in the stands is pissing me off
How about a steal by Medlen?
“the bright lights of Hollywood!”
it’s day light Chip, the lights aren’t even on …
Medlen > Chipper.
Don’t get quiet now TP HATERS! Couldn’t find anyone to blame the early woes on, so you chose TP. Now the team is winning and TP gets no credit.. You guys are amazing.
Kuroda was thinking that he’d rather pitch to Prado with 2 outs than have him leading off the inning again.
June 3rd, 201010:36 pm
nice canned footage of LA area. it’s not like they hired a helicopter to fly Joe and Chip around.
nice scenery, though
June 3rd, 201010:37 pm
haha I miss Chip Caray’s announcing..
Me too. I hope he will be hoarse by the 5th inning and then peace.
Mitchell, I would ten times rather see pop-ups than ground balls!
June 3rd, 201010:38 pm
And the skyline ain’t bad either. (amirite?)
McLouth needs to change his uniform number. 24 is not working. Didn’t work for Schafer either
Vin Scully – “Bobby Cox, one of the most well-liked and well-respected managers in baseball” – leaving unsaid “except among certain Braves’ fans”
June 3rd, 201010:39 pm
bird, not sure what you are chirping about. I thought TP needed to go, and while I am truly enjoying the turn around, I have not idea how much credit to give to TP. There were a few feel good articles written about him in the paper, and he stood up and gave some interviews, but I have yet to hear anyone on the team blame him for their struggles, or credit him for their success. Glaus certainly has not stood up and said “Thank you TP for helping me get through that.”
You would be better to just drop it and enjoy the great baseball we are being treated with.
I tell you, I can’t believe that Detroit pitcher had 2 outs in the bottom of the night and a bad call ended the perfect game.
Or…he needs to keep hitting it to Yunel.
June 3rd, 201010:40 pm
Boy, it’s a great night to stay up late to celebrate my last day of work (I’m a school psychologist). I owe the Clayton county schools hierarchy props for making the last day of work coincide with the first day of a west coast Braves trip. I can’t wait to sleep until 11:00 tomorrow!
Ice Cold Beer!!! TP is Terry Pendleton.
just too g-d congested. it’s a nightmare. it makes Atlanta look like a country town
June 3rd, 201010:41 pm
It might be his baggy uni but Russell Martin looks a bit chunkier than usual to me.
Sorry, you can ignore my stupidity.
I cant sleep in as long as I would like, me and my madre have to go shopping to get me ready to leave for NC with my brother !
It’s mine…but you can borrow some if you need it
nice start by Med’s.
Ice Cold Beer!!! you aren’t stupid, you just weren’t sure who TP was.
June 3rd, 201010:42 pm
30 thou . . . er, 30 hund . . . , er 30 fans in the stands.
Well done, Kris!
June 3rd, 201010:43 pm
Medlen looking sharp.
Just saw the shot of the crowd in the ballpark tonight, even with the NBA Finals starting, it’s looking rather Marlinesque there.
2 IP, 29 innings for little Meds. Keep it going.
Dont jinx us
we couldn’t have asked for anything more from medlen than this after jj went down
Is something wrong with Schafer. HE has not played the past 2 games?
Ice Cold Beer???
I like winning.
pitches, pitches pitches. (bangs head)
Medlen has really eased the pain of loosing JJJ for so much of the 1st half of this year.
June 3rd, 201010:44 pm
Sopheeee – I just flipped channels to check the score, and I got hissed at…
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
