Leo had the pitching philosophy to establish the outside part of the plate. McDowell seems to have more of a Bob Gibson philosophy.
Back the hitters off with inside stuff and then use the outside corner to put the hitter away.
Haha okay, CaptainMudderland!
Venters will never fail. So it is written, so it shall come to pass.
Captain Clarence Oveur
May be old news, but have you guys seen where Frenchy is demanding a trade so he can play right field every day. This is getting sad, really.
Furcal did not want to playn here or he would have gave the Braves chance to match the offer the Dodgers gave him. Bobby is a great manager but he cannot reach everyone. No matter how great a manager is there are some people who cannot get with his stlye.

Come outta the closet Ralph, you’re already gay.
I hope “Angry Billy” is in the hizzouse.
Hey robdawg, what say we table that compelling discussion until after the ninth inning in a freaking one run game on the road where the Braves haven’t won a series in a month?
August 11th, 20104:24 pm
We need to get Clarence Moore back as our hitting coach.
A little insurance wouldn’t hurt.
Ralph…its ok…we won’t judge…very much lol
DOB, Has a relief pitcher ever been voted rookie of the year.
That would be cool to see Venters get some votes for rookie of the year.
Why on earth is Glaus swinging 3-0?
Nope, just for Venters. And McLouth, when he is in AAA.
3-0 count!!!!! Cmon!
Glaus swung at 3-0.
MLBTR just posted a writeup re: Frenchy’s demand to be traded. Basically, they think it’s funny that someone as bad as him is demanding to be traded to where he can “start every day”.
And if you’re wondering why I typed “Moore,” it is because he was so important to the Braves’ success that I forgot his last name was Jones.

I hate to say it but I’m not real comfortable with only a 1 run lead…it’s too early in the day to wear my Braves rally nightgown. Dang.
Matty…sometimes we need a little comic relief
BravesQueen (aka Dee)
Time for ‘Angry Billy’ to come out and shut ‘em down! They really need to win a road series.
Ballgame, ballgame, ballgame.
Show of hands. Do you think the Astros have any chance in Hell of winning this game?
couldn’t they have put in LINDSTROM???
August 11th, 20104:26 pm
chop chop dont jinx is good lord
Clarence Jones was good, but Don Baylor was the man as far as hitting coach. Chipper praised him more than he has any other hitting coach. I wish we could have got him back.
Wagner’s last appearance in Houston? Go out with a bang, Billy.
August 11th, 20104:27 pm
Wow, Tommy threw a pretty good game eh?
I feel like an idiot.
melky ain’t bad for a fourth outfielder – he’s still fairly young – he has a ring which most of these other guys don’t have- just the name reminds of mookie wilson
August 11th, 20104:28 pm
You are seriously an idiot if you think me and Glen are the same guy. Paranoid actually. And whoever sold you that “software” hoodwinked you.
i think frenchy will be lucky to have a job next year…. i mean outside of KC who would want him? especially to play everyday.. also do you see boras or frenchy taking a paycut?
see…..chop chop is a phillies fan i know it
August 11th, 20104:29 pm
Chipper would’ve made that throw
Brave4life-1995 all over again??
Did anyone know that the assistant on Judging Amy is Clarence Jones son. He also was in “The Wood” and several other movies and TV shows.
I’m sure that Frenchy could start everyday in RF for somebody’s AA club.
Nova Scotia Steve
They call Hunter Pence the Praying Mantis….. he’s more like a gnat!
You’ve found me out. I have ruined the Braves’ season.
@Trey…you got a good grasp on this team and I never try to insult others deliberately—if i ever do, please call me out….I enjoy “all” you guys and gals—really do.
he jinxed it grrrrrrrr
I Hate Troy Glaus (formerly I Hate Liberty Media)
And here comes the meltdown.
DAMNIT!!! Can’t they ever do anything right???
August 11th, 20104:30 pm
this just got ugly fast
Is Cox thinking about yanking Wagner? Or is he just gonna throw the white flag up again?
Rafael Siriano sure looks good right now.
Oh well. Another blown save comin’ up.
fudge, NOT AGAIN
Crap, this doesn’t look good, come on WAGS!!
Not the bang I was looking for, Billy.
Here come the strikeouts. I can feel it.
Here we go again…
amazing….but in a bad way
you never say a team has won the game before its over chop chop…basic non jinxing rule….ha
McFann :Ô: :Ô:
abwright I don’t think Bobby will let players wear a belt and suspenders.
Sorry… too much “Leave It To Beaver” lately…
billy, billy, billy
August 11th, 20104:31 pm
venters for closer
Captain, thanks you do too!
need a strike out
Tale of Woe
Wags can’t throw back-to-back nights….
Oh, no..not again.
Strike out the batter, go for the double play.
Billy must have caught some of Loaf’s mellow.
sign me up for venters to close
waggs has not been worth his coin since the break
He’s got to K the next 2 batters to even have a chance of not tying.
August 11th, 20104:32 pm
Another Wagner blown save.
South Georgia Braves
Tied game. Dangumit!!
Pathetic throw by Diaz. Our LF’s are so bad.
Who didn’t see this coming?
And that is why Wags needs more than 1 run to work with. Sorry Tommy, you’re outta luck.
Hanson with a ND
Dang, can’t Wagner come into a game we are winning and NOT FREAKING BLOW THE SAVE????
go retire already
Well, that was predictable.
And there goes my late afternoon nap.
DOB, ask Bobby why he always throws Wagner out there. Also, ask him why he always uses the same arms night after night in the bull pen.
Oh well, we’ll lose this one and all the talk will be about how great TH was.
Billy Wagner blows another SAVE!!!! CRAP!!!!
August 11th, 20104:33 pm
Time to put Billy out to pasture as a setup guy for Venters . . .
man, i feel bad for tommy…
how many blown saves is that since the break?
Billy Wagner for President
Tommy says “thanks”.
when you need a strike out, you don’t throw a slider down the middle and up.
I feel really bad for T. Hanson. COME ON WAGNER!
That’s why they should have bunted earlier. Bobby Cox doesnt like extra runs. It always comes back to bite him in the end.
f you wagner, hurry up and retire old man
ANOTHER BLOWN SAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
