“Wavingthewhiteflag” – Living up to your screenname much? Aside from that being mathmatically impossible, I really don’t think that the phillies are getting a ton better by getting oswalt. They still have to score runs, and they have hitters dropping like flies.
I’m with J-Man….we might be in 1st now….but who cares come the end of the season….if you’re happy with the team the way it is….in 1st with many glaring holes….rapidly losing ground in the standings….then you aren’t a true fan….you’re just a homer who doesn’t have the guts to criticize your team

NO NO NO NO to Chone Figgins
Chone Figgins is the very definition of washed up. Agree. NO.
July 31st, 20103:43 pm
i hope we get raja
Insider is usually right in football. Hope U right now. Hart 1st then Davis. Davis has not power just alot of speed.

THE BRAVES ARE WAITING FOR NOTHING THEY ARE GOING TO PLAY THE WAIVER WIRES , AND PROBABLY RETIRED PLAYERS.
What is scary is the Phillies have the rotation they do, are still scoring runs despite being depleted by injuries and will be getting Utley and the hawaiian back….Just scary
Lest we not forget the other teams making major runs too. if we stand pat, we won’t even win the wild card
What is Hart’s injury situation?
July 31st, 20103:45 pm
We’ll end up with Jermaine Dye as our big move
For all that Figgins is good – he was 3 for 35 in postseason last year – biggest reason Angels said “See ya” no thanks Seattle
Wren should trade Prado to Ariz. and get Kelly Johnson back.
Kelly would never had broke his pinkie sliding into home, last night.
Wren still has 15minutes.
July 31st, 20103:46 pm
paperwork being faxed to the MLB offices as we speak…be ready Braves fans
Red Sox just released Jeremy Hermida
the braves will not finance the future this time
July 31st, 20103:47 pm
Yeah, Oswalt looked real good last night.
July 31st, 20103:48 pm
Is KK still on the Braves roster?
Or did he evaporate?
July 31st, 20103:49 pm
oswalt is still dominating. you’re going on one outing? you would have had a hard on to see Braves across his chest. dont go down that path
the braves will be set for 10 yrs with talent in farm system..
insider- I don’t know whether to love you or hate you.
Can McLouth play second?
What exactly does, the Braves will not finance the future, mean?
July 31st, 20103:50 pm
For all of you who are whining about the Braves being cheap, I for one don’t subscribe to the “let’s make a deadline deal” just for the sake of making one. No more Texeria fiascos, not with the budding talent this team already has in the majors and in the farm.
mr. willis- I would not base an opinion on one game. Oswalt is still good. I don’t know about dominate.
bring up freeman, trade for k johnson ,arizona , the giants are trying to get him now.

Kemp was benched by Torre several games for “attitude” problems, not listening to coaches…
Before season began, GM Coletti scolded Kemp for underachieving.
His body language can be JUST AS BAD as Yunnel…No question about Kemp’s skills and talent…..But just think he’s a ghetto rat…
Mr. willis…. if you are responding to the o, you are incorrect.
The Braves don’t need Oswalt, in my opinion.
July 31st, 20103:52 pm
Hermida DFA’d — to think how highly he and fellow Atlanta prep phenom Francoeur were regarded not long ago….
6 mins Insider
July 31st, 20103:53 pm
tristan……McLouth can play 2nd, and he can kick a FG, if the Falcons need him.
As someone already mentioned, a trade could easily happen and we might not hear about it till 4:30 or later. Yanks just got Kerry Wood. Who haven’t they got?
yankees get kerry wood woo hoo who cares..
July 31st, 20103:54 pm
Insider reporting at 3:44 that Braves are still waiting to hear on Venter’s suspension. Boy, that gives me confidence in my Insider membership…NOT!
you’ll see it from the “experts” from espn, etc… soon enough
bad job by Wren not getting anything done today – i guess its time to turn my attention to finding a way to score some runs off Arroyo with our awful lineup. No prado, no new face in trade. No protection for j-hey or McCann. Terrible job today
atlanta talk to yankees about java chamberlin , he is a beast , change of scenery will pay dividends for atlanta.
July 31st, 20103:55 pm
what are you talking about blackbird?
July 31st, 20103:56 pm
I know Insider..U got to believe. I learned the hard way.
July 31st, 20103:57 pm
The not guily verdict on Venters, just goes to show how ignorant, Bob Watson is.
Braves Fan Still Stuck in Beantown
July 31st, 20103:58 pm
Jacoby “Premadonna” Ellsbury? It makes me wanna PUKE hearing Atlanta fans want this twinkletoes on our beloved Braves.
Take it from me, the only reason Boston had this kid was to sell his jersey to a bunch of dim-witted, tongue-wagging, liberal, granola, Cambridge co-ed wh-res.
Can I also say that FOX SUCKS for broadcasting the Red Sox-Tigers game here and blacking out my MLB TV subscription.
July 31st, 20103:59 pm
just because it is 4 doesn’t mean it’s over. deals have to be sent to MLB first. you may not hear anything until 4:30 or 5. don’t be ignorant people.
FRANK WREN AND LIBERTY MEDIA ARE CHICKEN SHI PEOPLE , AND THE BRAVES WILL FINISH LAST.
It looks like nothing is going to happen guys.
July 31st, 20104:00 pm
Your best hitter is probably going on the DL and if no move of some kind is made we are done.
Wren may have botched this day up.
oh no, its 4 and i didnt hear about a trade. must mean nothing happened….losers
The Real Don Steele
Can’t believe you whiners want FW to make a trade for the sake of a trade. We’ve got the best team in the NL right now and all trading partners want our treasure trove of prospects for their mediocre trade bait and Frank won’t bite. Good for him. We’ve been burned too many times.
July 31st, 20104:01 pm
insier- I am hearing nothing on mlbtv. what is your source?
Nothing, we play with what we have now. That’s fine with me.
Something needs to be done
July 31st, 20104:02 pm
what channel are the braves on???? fox has sf vs la
I’m betting on Insider………..
the 4:30 ish announcements are getting less, and less common with so much reporting going on. Not even hearing rumors.
July 31st, 20104:03 pm
Thank God, Pa didn’t lose the farm!
deals over $1 mil. in cash have to be approved by commish
I made an inside bet once ….and lost
July 31st, 20104:04 pm
haters stop saying it was a trade for the sake of a trade – we NEED a bat we NEED another bullpen arm. and without Prado we are in a lot of trouble. Wren and ownership is clearly not committed to capitalize on being in first place in August. Cheap cheap cheap – cheap doesn’t win world series
Braves on WAGA
game will be om fox, calm down
Insider is it Davis are Hart?
THE BRAVES ARE A JOKE NO WONDER I PULL FOR OTHER TEAMS , NO WONDER THE YANKEES WIN WORLD SERIES ALL THE TIME, GEORGE IS GONE AND THEY STILL MAKE MOVES .
July 31st, 20104:05 pm
What good does a treasure trove of prospects do you if you don’t use one or two of them for trades. Prospects are not meant to just play for your team. They are meant to be used in trades as well. Six young starters in the minors are not going to help you because you are not going to use six starters of that caliber. If you have a chance to get to the dance now you use one of them to do it. You don’t just stand pat. This team as it is is not getting to the World Series.
I have the game on Fox. Comcast.
Dan Kolb's Mom
BREAKING NEWS- BRAVES ACQUIRE RELIEF PITCHER DAN KOLB FROM THE USED CAR DEALERSHIP WHERE HE WORKS
July 31st, 20104:06 pm
Calm down guys, I am gonna fake a hammy today and Freddie will be called up to give me a two week break.
Yea they did Nothing………. Daniel let me repete NOTHING………. this team needed help and the ownership or GM or both did nothing
rob- I don’t get the cheap comment. What salary were the Braves afraid to take on?
Hey Dan Kolb’s mom, I hear your pants don’t always stay on.
This is NOT a 1 week injury. I had the same exact injury. It takes a 2-3 weeks before the ligament reattaches. If he comes back sooner than 4 weeks, he won’t be able to throw. I hope the braves aren’t stupid about this.
July 31st, 20104:07 pm
thats the rumor
July 31st, 20104:08 pm
All u people saying we did nothing, get your money out. The Insider knows!
yahoo says wilken ramirez for cash….
Some of the people on this blog are really, really stupid.
J-Man, so you think that Dave was lying when he said that the Braves and Frank Wren were actively working the phones for a trade? Either nothing was good for the team, or we just haven’t heard about it yet.
July 31st, 20104:09 pm
say it ain’t so
i don’t think cheap comes into play. most teams that are the sender are eating a majority of the salary. look at the oswalt and berkman deals…the astros ate a lot of their salaries.
No outfield bat, No bullpenhelp, no infeld depth help, were 3 for 3
much biggter deal close
It’s a matter of what you get for what you give in a trade. To give top prospects for marginal talent in return would be lunacy.
July 31st, 20104:10 pm
TRADE IS OVER.
Rosenthal just said Much bigger deal close
Dude if you want a deal you stay active not wait til 45 minutes before the deadline to do something
Figgins being reported….
Big move by Braves!!! Wilkin Ramirez!!! Uh who is that?
This is their Derek Lowe
Braves have acquired Wilkin Ramirez from Tigers.
July 31st, 20104:11 pm
woo i was wrong we got Ramirez we got Ramirez…wait Who not manny? Oh who is Wilkin…we now have a wilken who has never played in the majors and a melky who is fat and slow
we got something in the pipeline boys
Granted I’m not giving up Minor for Cody Ross but damn something needed to be done
July 31st, 20104:12 pm
Ankiel TO BRAVES and Farnsworth
braves acquire kyle farnsworth and rick ankiel
Braves don’t need anything. They’re good enough already.
Just posted by Will Carroll from Baseball Prospectus. Ankiel and Farnsworth to Braves!
July 31st, 20104:13 pm
whatever is in the pipeline it is bigger than the ramirez trade
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
