Saito is waming up, in case no one answered that one.
here comes a gapper
here we go bases loaded can get a big hit here or an inning ending DP.. im callin a DP..
IBB to setup the bases juiced…. position this team has struggled with so far this yr. would love to get just 1 more
Marc in FL
You hit the nail on the head I think DOB. This team isn’t the best in MLB, or even the best in the NL, but they never give up and that’s why we’re in 1st place. Hooray for sheer determination!
I Hate Troy Glaus (formerly I Hate Liberty Media)
“Good job! I don’t really care what you think of me even your name (i hate troy glaus) is negative. Lets go braves!”
You’re not very bright, are you?
Gonzo gets a hit.
Gotta have a rep from every team
Glaus is an Albatross
way to prove me wrong Gonzo…. that was a perfect job of hitting.
South Georgia Braves
Another hit and run. Gonzo.
Nova Scotia Steve
Wagner is line for the Win.
Yay, new guy!
screw the haters!!!!!
McFann :Ô: :Ô:
August 11th, 20104:50 pm
Oh yeah…it’s happening!
can we put venters back in to close it out?
Yeah AGON, suck on that Agon haters!!!! Love this rag-tag team, never give up!
Why not Venters for the close?. Wagner hasn’t looked good but a couple of times in the past month.
SHOCK AND AWE
THIS IS A SHOCK AND AWE CAMPAIGN IF IVE EVER SEEN ONE
there’s another hit w/ RISP… how we doin now!!!!
Yee Haw! 4-2 Bravos!
ok i was wrong now put this game out of reachhh…
still want more, more, more
Wagner instead of Soriano
Trade Vazquez for crap
ankiel and farns
Just Wagner,AGon, and Farnsworth have cost the braves 13 games (at least)
So has Wagner all of a sudden turned into Oscar Villarreal?
August 11th, 20104:51 pm
@Josh… spot on at 4:49
Someone definitley needs to recap this inning, I’m completley lost
Here comes MattE!
warmin’ up to Alex . . .
Matty’s up, I can’t stand the pressure, ahhhhh. If he doesn’t do anything, the blog will eviscerate him, oh who cares, I’ll still love ya Matty!!
Booby: “Wagner never blows saves.” And “Alex Gonzalez still hasn’t made any errors.”
It’s frustrating to go down to the wire all the time…but it’s never dull that’s for sure.
Hey lets throw Dunn or Farns out there in the 10th just to make it more interesting
who’s next to try to close this one out
August 11th, 20104:52 pm
DOB, it’s the Astros.
I don’t want them to be resiliant against the Astros. I want them to kill the Astros. I want them to play like the first place team their record says they are.
Be resiliant against a good team and I’ll be impressed.
Having said that, they have been at times. I’m not saying they haven’t. I’m just saying beat the freaking Astros. They’re in fourth place.
I think the game has been iced for good this time.
I never hated on AGon….or anyone else for that matter on our team.
Conrad flied out to left. 2 2
R Ankiel walked. 2 2
E Hinske hit for B Wagner. 2 2
R Ankiel safe at second on error by first baseman P Feliz. 2 2
E Hinske intentionally walked. 2 2
O Infante doubled to deep left, R Ankiel scored, E Hinske to third. 3 2
D Hernandez ran for E Hinske. 3 2
M Cabrera intentionally walked. 3 2
A Gonzalez singled to left center, D Hernandez scored, O Infante to third, M Cabrera to second. 4 2
J Fulchino relieved B Lyon. 4 2
B McCann hit for M Diaz. 4 2
Not that I care too much but the Astros must really be feeling bad about this game and last night’s comeback by the Bravos…..
Well, no need to worry about Matty. McFann, pressure is all on you and your boy!!! Kidding.
whatasay B-Mac… hit it hard kid
McCann for Diaz. C’mon Brian.
Brave4life-1995 all over again??
I actually have an autograph of Oscar Villarreal. 2 years back he just came to the stands and he signed my hat and he decreased the value.
August 11th, 20104:53 pm
Mac hits the grand jack pinch hit! WOOOOOOOOOOO
woo hoo! told you to never give up!
Haha. Boy, the Astros stink, don’t they?
They served it up on a platter. Good job, Mac.
What a horrible inning that was for Wagner – 2 slow rollers to third, a pop out, fly out, and a line drive single, on which the runner possibly should have been thrown out…
B MAc is the MAN!!!
BEAUTIFUL!!!!! ATTA BOY!!
Safe for Farnsworth yet?
Quit complaining about Wagner … the Braves wanted to improve their batting average with RISP
why couldn’t they have done this a few innings earlier? Now they solidify Wagner’s vulture win ….
McFann, I hope you saw that. The owls can wait!
GRAND SLAMMMMM BABYYYY B-MACC..
The fat tube of goo hits a slam! If we blow this game…we really suck!
Brian the man
I wonder what Hanson is thinking right now
BravesQueen (aka Dee)
DAMN!!! A GRAND SALAMI FOR MAC!!! How you like them apples, ‘Stros??
HEY McFann, look at your mann!!
I jumped so hard I think I peed myself, WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I Freakin’ love this team!!!!!!
I think we might be able to hold on now. Way to go Brian
This is exciting play, but I sure hate blowing so many leads lately.
Like I said, only real homer threat ! Go Big Mac !!! Grand salami !
August 11th, 20104:54 pm
Way to go Brian… 7th Grand Slam in his career… wow.
LMAO!!!!!! MCCANN does it again!
That was for you, McFann!!
Tell me, in the bottom of the ninth, who here thought this game was going to be a blow out in favor of the Braves? lol, these guys are stupid-clutch this year.
I bet Mcfann is having a good day now!!!!!
wow Joe how could you forget Brook’s pinch hit slams?
Ok. Bring Wagner back in….
That ball was crushed by McCann !
whose your messiah now!
August 11th, 20104:55 pm
I bet the Astros wish they had a closer who only gave up one run. McCann grand slam.
See, Mac wouldn’t have that GS if Wagner had gotten the save.
…and we can dance in the street — Skip Carey.
We finally have enough runs for Farnsworth, thank you McCann.
Someone keeps posting and won’t let me shower my guy with love…
Glaus hits the ball hard again – this is a good sign.
They’ll start to fall in for em.
Okay, the salami is tasty, but Ankiel seriously needs to cut down his leads from first base. Ridiculous.
Breathe people. Breathe. THAT was sweet.
…and we can dance in the streets — Skip Carey.
Troy Glaus is starting to hit the ball hard again. Good sign of things to come I hope!
JeanE McFann, pressure is all on you and your boy!!! Kidding.
No pressure at all.
Man, who cares about the bottom of the 10th…. I could come in as closer & win this thing!!! LOL …whoo hoo
At the top of the screen on the Astros broadcast it said it was Matt Diaz’ 6th HR – someone not paying attention to the pinch hitter…
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
