Need to get Jose Guillen from KC ROYALS.
July 30th, 20108:12 pm
I thought Mcguirk said that the Braves didn’t have cutting payroll this season. We now see that those were both untruths.
July 30th, 20108:17 pm
now we need to get a proven, yet cheap, outfielder! What about Guillen or Ross?
Is Ross still on the market and what’s his price?
Are the Braves also looking for relief help?

Oh yeah…greaaaat move Wren. Trade someone with a decent average (not great but decent) and who also has 18 HR’s…when the Braves need another %$#@# bat in that lineup.
Yeah, wonderful job Wren.
July 30th, 20108:24 pm
why couldn’t the braves have traded KK or McLOUTh
July 30th, 20108:26 pm
Losing again. 1 run. Runners stranded all over. Like I said, the sweep is on.
July 30th, 20108:28 pm
Should trade medlen. Guys like him are good for a few weeks. A year tops then they stink and go back to aaa. Sell while the gettin is good.
July 30th, 20108:30 pm
I know Jones was old, but he had pop. Would’ve liked to have seen him get one more crack at the big time next year in spring training…
July 30th, 20108:35 pm
we need Adam Dunn really bad he would play left for us and boost our line-up greatly!
Whatever happened to Scott Proctor? Seems like a healthy Proctor could be just what the doctor ordered. As far as outfielders go, Jim Edmonds could probably be had and would represent a huge upgrade.
July 30th, 20108:39 pm
Alright! Big Mac gives Mr. Redlegs heartburn in the 5th inning!
July 30th, 20108:47 pm
Could it possibly be because they both have stunk it up this year and both have massive $$$ contracts? If you were a GM, Tyler, would you pay $250 for a Big Mac and an order of fries?
I heard Mike Minor was scratched from his start today, any possible news of him being involved in a trade?
July 30th, 20108:48 pm
Never mind, my mistake
July 30th, 20108:49 pm
You guys are killing me with this negative stuff. Would you rather the Braves be 10 games out of 1st place or 2.5 games IN THE LEAD IN NL EAST. Stop with the insults and enjoy Bobby Cox’s last season. Good grief.
July 30th, 20108:56 pm
WTF, Cueto, wait till you bat next you’re facing freaking Jonny Venters, dipwad!!! Too late, he’s coming out.
July 30th, 20109:00 pm
trading medlen is the worst idea ever. he has good stuff, really good stuff. i agree that we would be great trade bait, but i am vehemently opposed.
i don’t think minor is going anywhere; he’s the only southpaw stud in their near future. i thought he would be traded since he’s supposedly ready for the show until i found out he was a lefty.
July 30th, 20109:05 pm
We’ll see what happens later this year or next year.
Bases loaded no outs. 1 run. Vintage braves. Thankfully the nats are still hot from beating us.
July 30th, 20109:16 pm
I would be very surprised if Frank Wren were to trade Medlen unless the Braves get a heck of a lot more than Cody Ross. Trading Medlen for a hitter is very risky. You know what you got with Medlen, which is a good starter or reliever with a killer change-up that makes his fastball look more fierce than the radar gun would indicate.
If you trade him for a bat then you really have to hope the guy hits for a new team in a new stadium and possibly in a new league. I think not.
July 30th, 20109:17 pm
Wow what a tough out glaus is now. He swings like a girl
July 30th, 20109:25 pm
With that average and HRs looks like he could have filled a need in Hotlanta!
July 30th, 20109:35 pm
Glaus looks like he’s from planet X. What a space cadet. One good month out of four doesn’t cut it.
July 30th, 20109:37 pm
Need to trade for a first or third baseman. It’s not good, when you’re 3rd and 5th hitters are batting .250. Glaus is a rally killer. Chippers not much better.
July 30th, 20109:41 pm
maybe chipper and troy are from the escobar school of baseball. play like shart til you get traded, then be awessome…………but still a douche.
Braves Fan Since "80
July 30th, 20109:44 pm
Chipper has destroyed the infield, poor defense inability to get alonf with the former short and weak bat….. He should have retired
July 30th, 20109:46 pm
Nick–what’s the score?
July 30th, 20109:47 pm
Are you guys really fans of the Braves? We wouldn’t be in 1st place without Glaus. He carried the team on his shoulders for 6 weeks.
July 30th, 20109:52 pm
I love it. Oswalt gets sha-lacked and happ in houston is throwing a shut out.
July 30th, 20109:53 pm
Game isn’t over yet doofus.
July 30th, 20109:57 pm
What’s the score now doofus?
July 30th, 20109:58 pm
Austin Kerns (sp) just traded to Yankees who just lost to Rays.
Dang just pitch votta inside.
July 30th, 20109:59 pm
How’s it looking now CACa
July 30th, 201010:00 pm
I believe we are seeing a little bit of clutch hitting right now….. It has disappeared from our side, thats for sure
Nice throw jason. idiot
Game now 4-4 and the wheels are coming of for Braves. Venter getting hit hard. Braves playing 8th like little league.
If chipper dove, he’s out. God he is lazy
July 30th, 201010:01 pm
tie game. medlen get the no decision
July 30th, 201010:02 pm
Cox over worked Venters last 3 days.
July 30th, 201010:03 pm
going to 9th equal.
July 30th, 201010:05 pm
Phillys lost –mets down by 4 in 8th –Braves need this game BAD>
July 30th, 201010:07 pm
Come to think of it, have you ever seen Chipper with a dirty uniform??? It’s a routine thing with Heyward and Prado, to mention two. Chipper, very seldom.
Rowdy Roddy Piper
July 30th, 201010:13 pm
We need another bat like Hulk Hogan needs another sleeper.
July 30th, 201010:15 pm
You gotta love Glaus…but he is killing us…
July 30th, 201010:16 pm
That last At bat
July 30th, 201010:17 pm
Crap. If Brooksie would have had just one more pancake for breakfast the Bravos would be ahead by one right now.
Well this game is over
Jesse Chavez is pitching…………………… BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!
July 30th, 201010:18 pm
Chavez ????????????? I cannot believe it……….
Chavez in Braves lose….goodnight fellow Braves Fans
I guess KK isn’t warmed up yet.
July 30th, 201010:19 pm
Why is this guy pitching?
Take Chavez out NOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!
I don’t exactly get that warm fuzzy with Chavez.
When was the last time KK pitched? THis game is over.
July 30th, 201010:20 pm
I don’t like anyone with the last name chavez, especially that hugo idiot.
Jesse Chavez for offensive player of the year….. because he produces so many runs
DC Braves Fan
Well, Karma rearing its head in the top of the 9th. Conrad gets a game winning grand slam against the Reds off an outfielder’s glove in ATL and gets robbed of a game winner (potentially) in CIN. Oh well. Go get ‘em Chavez.
PS: You have to really be blinded by irrational hate for Chipper Jones (RBI tonight, by the way) to blame him for Rolen advancing to 3rd on that fly ball. The throw from Heyward was really bad–three steps toward home. The only way Chipper gets him with that throw is if he turns into Inspector Gadget.
July 30th, 201010:21 pm
Damn it he’s gonna give up a 2 out bloop hit to orlando Cabrera
Jesse looks like the busboy at Monterrey restaurant. haha
When you have KK and Chavez in your bullpen you are dramatically impacting the wear and tear on the other guys, not to mention you cannot pitch them unless you are way ahead or way behind. This needs to get addressed asap
July 30th, 201010:22 pm
come on god strike down Chavez before he makes another pitch
All he had to do is dive to the bag and he gets him. Quit making excuses. He’s lazy.
glaus is 19 for his last 122 at bat. he cant run at all.trade him now and call up freeman.
Glaus is pathetic. I told you this 9 days ago. He’s DONE ! Hinske should be at 1st but Cox & Wren are dumasses…
No trade today by Wren. He’s pathetic as well. Even Big Foot knows the Braves need a power hitting OF. Everybody knows…
July 30th, 201010:23 pm
hes got 2 strikes and is still gonna give up a blooper
Joe you are crazy or blind. No way he gets him with that throw. Silly statement.
July 30th, 201010:24 pm
WOW Chavez actually got somebody out??????????????
Uh his back didn’t break chip.
Sit down! Maybe its “Blind Squirrel Syndrome”, but a nice inning from Chavez.
Now, lets get some runs!
Thank you God !!! A miracle….Jesse did not blow the game !!!!
July 30th, 201010:25 pm
Chavez 1 inning pitched this game with no runs allowed…Pull him and trade him now….His value has never been higher.
Conrad barely misses a clutch HR and Chavez ACTUALLY gets an out……… How ironic
Whatever bob. I looked at the replay 3 times. He was very slow to get to the bag after he caught the ball. Not making excuses for a poor throw but if he dives to the bag, he gets him easy. Perhaps you need glasses or contacts or to lay off the beers.
Sasquatch knows the Braves need a power hitting OF. So Wren is going to hold onto 15 top minor league pitchers of whom probably only 5 will make it to the majors.
July 30th, 201010:26 pm
Come on Braves get a run
He’s right Bob. Chipper was all nonchalant about getting over to tag Dunn. If he dove, he would have easily got him.
Joe, maybe you need HD. That black and white set just won’t cut it.
July 30th, 201010:27 pm
Come on, man. No excuses here. Just the truth (at least on that one issue, not making any other claims . .. )Im a Heyward fan, too, but the blame goes to J-Hey on that one. It was a really bad throw. Not nearly as close as you think.
Come on Braves.
We need some stereroids………STAT!!!!!!!!!!!
Break out the brooms.
Like I said, a REDS sweep is coming. This team won’t score a run and the reds have power. They will hit a dinger next inning. OVA!
July 30th, 201010:28 pm
Yeah, maybe we can trade Jesse Chavez for Raphael Soriano. By the way, Orlando Cabrera is a punk. Those pitches were below the letters. I guess he was looking fo that home field discount.
I give you Matt Diaz……. your welcome
July 30th, 201010:29 pm
Dude what is your problem? Are you chippers clothes launderer? I never said it wasn’t a bad throw. I said if he dives, he gets him. Chipper is very lazy now as he’s gotten older. I’ve seen balls fly bye him that he use to snag. This was prime old chipper being lazy. Quit making excuses.
July 30th, 201010:30 pm
How is ffing Chavez still on our roster, much less pitching him in a tied game in the 9th?!!!!!! And with all the runners we leave on base EVERY GAME how in the world does FW not make a trade???
July 30th, 201010:32 pm
Great Diaz…………We need another relief pitcher. Come on Prado get it done…….
I may have above average strength but at least I didn’t mess with my nads
July 30th, 201010:33 pm
Ironic melky is the best player we have right now
Krusty the Clown
I got $10 bucks on this game
This Mitch Jones trade for cash is like me selling a push mower I never use…
Milkey just stole 2nd, now a hit will get him in
July 30th, 201010:34 pm
Come on Prado
Martin has turned into a foul ball machine
July 30th, 201010:35 pm
Prado slumping too…
Great eye Prado………. Come on Heyward
July 30th, 201010:36 pm
Hinske needs to pinch hit for Glaus pronto.
July 30th, 201010:37 pm
Pitch was low…
July 30th, 201010:38 pm
good AB jason come on and win this game
Scott…that was Rolen going to third…what game are you watching? Dunnn is with the Nationals…or is he?
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
