Seriously; how many saves/games does Wags have to blow before Booby gets the memo that he can’t use him back-to-back right now?
Glaus is an Albatross
Just got home… see Wags is up to his old tricks.
If Tommy Hanson takes a bat and rearranges the visitor’s clubhouse at the Juice Box, I think he would be perfectly justified.
Brave4life-1995 all over again??
Carlos Lee is fat, HE WILL NOT RUN
BILLY WAGNER SUCKS.
Brooks is leading off the tenth. What are we worried about?

Wags hasn’t been the same pitcher since the All star break
wagner with another save
Tommy did look really good…..now we have to work on defense and the closer…..wagner is not reliable anymore
August 11th, 20104:34 pm
I have zero faith in Wagner.
Unbelievable. I wish Billy would come through more often, I know he is getting older and it is tougher to pitch back to back nights, but he really needs to be able to put a bad to mediocre Astro’s team away. It is really frustrating to know you need at least 2 runs when your closer comes in to have a chance
I Hate Troy Glaus (formerly I Hate Liberty Media)
Not a World Series team.
If you can’t hold a lead over the ’stros in the latter innings, why would anyone think we can hang with the other elite teams during crunch time
Please no pickoff attempts – or any other chance to throw the ball away.
Has he always worn #13, ’cause that is just bad luck to me. Bad Juju.
McFann :Ô: :Ô:
I knew it…Monday it was the seventh, last night it was the eighth, so it only stands to reason…
wagner with another blown save
How did the leadoff guy get to third on a sharp line drive single to left?!
Barnacle Bill Bavasi
Wags stinks and Hanson gets hosed again.
this pisses me off
Well, we’re worried about first getting to the 10th.
This ENTIRE series, the Astros have started rallies with dinks and bloops.
That’s why you bunt guys over! Play for one run Bobby! PLAY FOR ONE EXTRA RUN!!!!
Is there ANY reason that Jonny Venters isn’t closing out baseball games for the Braves at this point? They might actually win these hard fought efforts in 9 innings… sheez…
August 11th, 20104:35 pm
Another blown W for Hanson. He should’ve won his last 3 starts. Wagner owes him about 3 dinners now.
CRAP, not again, BILLY WAGNER is killing us!!!!
well, well … how soon before the second guessers arrive? Wagner on back-to-back days??? Why not the well-rested Mr. Saito???
THIS REALLY ISN’T A JOKE ANYMORE. THE GUY CAN’T BE TRUSTED ANY LONGER. THIS IS RIDICULOUS!!!
Got to leave now and see how the city feels……hope we can pull this rediculously close contest out…later.
b/c diaz has a crap arm
BravesQueen (aka Dee)
WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?????
Bobby can’t keep using Wagner like the dude is 25 years old. I don;t think he can pitch back to back anymore.
Isnt that why we have Saito, Farnesworth, Venters, etc?
you know buying old horses seem like a good deal..until you’ve ridden them for a month or two and they break down.
Really, the dude is like 250 pounds
Is everyone up for another 18inning marathon between the Braves and the ‘Stros?
That was for the guy who said Carlos Lee was too fat to run . . .
Tale of Woe
Why is there a picture of Wags in a Mets hat on Yahoo? You would have thought 4 months of the baseball season that they could have changed that
wtf? why does everyone steal on us?
Wait, but I thought he was fat and wouldn’t run?!
Lee steals 2nd. Wow. This team knows how to lose games. Pathetic.
Carlos Lee steal?
Carlos Lee with a stolen base? Seriously?
How the eff do you let Carlos Lee steal a base?? Ridiculous.
Bobby Cox doesnt like extra runs
It’s a very tuff accomplishment but this is the dumbest comment of the game.
August 11th, 20104:36 pm
What is that 8 BS now?
And like 6 in the last month?!
Ouch…Wags just can’t get a break…if Heyward is healthy, Diaz isn’t out there and Pence never runs on Melky there…
I can’t watch….man o man…Venter had another inning in him…and Saito is rested..!!!
I dunno ask Farnsworth
what a play brooksie!!!!
Helluva play Brooks Conrad! Wow!
Glaus is gonna get hurt. His footwork down there is just terrible.
“Not a World Series team.”
No Sir, not this team, not this year.
Who’s going to step up in extras? Half our run production came from the starting pitcher!
This certainly could be a world series team….every team has rough patches…..dont be such a debbie downer.
Too little, too late
Wagner is really struggling, Bobby is using him too much
This team seemed to be a lot more fundamentally sound a month ago. Bunting runners over, a squeeze play or two. I don’t understand why they stopped.
Astros commentator on Glaus:
“His footwork down there is just horrible.”
August 11th, 20104:37 pm
Good job, Brooksie. I hate extra innings. I really can’t wait for Martin to come back, need him badly!
ITP Braves Fan
Does Tommy Hanson constantly take the bullpen’s per diem or something? It’s uncanny how many wins the ‘pen has cost him the last few weeks.
Also, DOB, why not give Wagner the day off after he pitched last night? It really seems like he’s wearing down as the season goes on, and this was a perfect opportunity to let Saito close it out (like Sunday).
Does that mean Farnsworth’s coming in?
How many games since the allstar break does bobby cox need to see Billy “im old tired and done” Wagner BLOW THE GAMES IN THE 9th WITH A LEAD before he STOPS CLOSING…Sit him for 2 weeks let saito or venters close…This is a joke he sucks now..He gave us a great 1st half thank u for that billy but you dont have it anymore you suck your terrible now u blow saves more than u actually get the save now youre a joke…LET VENTERS CLOSE COX…You will cost this team the season if you dont make some changes…Wagner sucks now he needs atleast 2 weeks off to get his location and stamina back to what it was in the 1st half…GIve him rest let him work on somethings and then let him comeback… bc he does more harm for this team pitching in the bottom of the 9th now than he does good…
WOW … same play Chipper had an error … Conrad made!!!!! YES!!
lee stole a base?
this is just stupid
waggs and glaus should both be DL’d for 15 days just to keep bobby from using them….lord knows given the chance, bobby will run them both out there time and time again
I have a test tomorrow and was really glad todays game would end a few minutes early. god forbid i start studying a bit early.
Hill-Billy Wagner sucks !
why does everthing have to b so f***ing hard?
Venters need to be closer ASAP
Well, at least Brooks Conrad can play ball.
“This certainly could be a world series team….every team has rough patches…..dont be such a debbie downer.”
August 11th, 20104:38 pm
Well, at least we have Farns to blow an extra inning debacle in Houston again – can we get Joey Devine back real quick?
FUC* YOU BILLY!!!! what do I have to do to get a fu*king W??? I have gone 7 innings and given up 1 run my last three starts and have sh*t to show for it!!!
Why didn’t Ross throw the ball to 2nd on the Carlos Lee SB?
mute point now, but he could have rolled it to 2nd and still got him out.
man, this team is just not playing fundamental baseball and that is extremely frustrating!!!
Cue …. the whiners … hindsight is 20/20
Holding my tough…
All Wagner haters please redirect your vitriol towards the one and only HOF manager.
Wagner is reminding me of Soriano last year.
Now wait for Nick 2.0.
Did anybody not know that would happen?
I don’t even understand the World Series talks…
In Glaus’s defense, he’s not much younger than Milo Hamilton.
August 11th, 20104:39 pm
Smart move by the Astros to have a lefty face Brooks. He hasn’t hit lefties at all.
What are the chances the Braves win a game in extras? They better score in the 10th…
does wags have more blown saves than saves yet?
When your key players are aging vets who either have health issues or are coming back from health issues, I think we’re seeing what happens.
Well I still have faith in the braves…..for those of you who want to give up on them already….don’t watch if you are going to be so negative…..
Bobby: “Gonzo never makes an error and Billy saves all of them.”
Fing Billy Wagner thank you for blowing my win
7 blown saves
Wait a minute. . . .
August 11th, 20104:40 pm
for the love of all that is holy and righteous — STOP RUNNING WAGNER OUT THERE!!
how many saves does he have to blow during a season after the all-star game before people realize he sucks in July/Aug/Sept??????????????????????????
he did the same thing in Philly and NY!!!!!
Well it won’t be Wags in the 10th….Hinske has a bat in his hands!
I know this story, Wager blows the game … Braves lose in extras, Philly wins and Wagner costs the team ANOTHER game in the standings
This game will be over soon enough.
On the lighter side, I’m totally addicted to this Owl cam. Molly is such a CUTIE! And a good mother…she’s so sweet…
This team already scored the 2 runs it was going to score today…soo…unless this game goes until tomorrow…
Ankiel strongly resembles Fire Marshall Bill.
Hanson should ask for a new closer…
Or Mitchell, the other Nick.
Isn’t he already hurt?
venters > wagner.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
