Keep the faith Braves fans if you can somehow find it in you.
Go Nationals!!! (later on today)
I Love Derrek Lee (formerly I Hate Liberty Media/I Hate Troy Glaus)
“Is that all you got? First a pizza delivery joke, then that?
Wow. For fear of being zinged any further I’m declaring you the winner. You’re the best. Well done.”
Well, I don’t have to have my best game with someone like you. Go read a book. You might learn something.
Brave4life-1995 all over again??
Dude cant find the “k” zone
Chop It Up All-Star

Well, I guess today’s comeback will be one of those monumental ones at this rate.
I like Derrek Lee, always have, but he seems to be having trouble hitting a fastball. Not a good sign.
Can’t depend on the comeback every singkle game. It tires you mentally.
Bad Hanson is a joke. It’s funny, but accurate

I hate day games on Fox

Hold them here, and for the rest of the game, and chip away. Get some runs in the next inning.
Looks like one of Tommy’s patented struggle games. Man, when he’s bad, he’s pretty bad.
What’s wrong With Tommy Squirt Gun’s velocity? Throwing 89-90 according to the stadium gun.
If Hanson can stop the bleeding they still have a chance. The Braves should get into the Cub’s pen by the 6th.

This is brutal…
The game’s getting out of reach.
Time-out…my lungs are burning
August 21st, 20105:13 pm
Bobby, hello? How many runs before you pull Tommy?
WHy cant we get hit like those
It’s my fault. Whenever Tommy is on tv and I get to watch, he absolutely pitches like crap. Awful.
I hate day games on Fox
Me too…especially since I can now watch all the other day games that the Braves play…only Saturday afternoon games are blcoked
Cubs have 3 hits, 2 walks, 3 runs in this ugly 3rd against Hanson. And it ain’t over yet.
Steve, what’s funnier is that it’s usually guys that are ashamed of their own job (or lack there of) that would throw “pizza delivery” jokes around.
Trey - 10
Hanson is frustrating today, but I wouldn’t go as far to say he sucks.
alright were getting blown out.
Bad Hanson is back.
Gonna put this game away now!
Quotes from BC after Saturday’s game: We can still go for 2 out of 3. Had some hard hit balls. Guys looked good.
The A Bomb
Bad Hanson is now raging.
Yeah Bobby can’t afford to let this guy give up too many more…something tells me that five is already too much.
Hold them here, and for the rest of the game, and chip away
Chip is away. Way to look at the bright side
How the eff was that not a strike
August 21st, 20105:14 pm
I hope Strasburg is awesome tonight.
Yea..tommy just doesnt have it today. I’m surprised Bobby left him in for so long…and the game is not out of reach.
No Trey, he doesn’t suck, but he’s having a bad outing.
get your head out of your butt tommy.
Hanson gave up six hits today.
Wow!!! 5 – 0, is a tough comeback. Those walks will get you almost everytime.
I hope we weeen
Where is Chip when you need him to sing take me out to the ballgame?
Sweet Lou speaks

If someone, anyone, would have told you in April that we would be within five games of first place in the middle of August you would have been ecstatic. If someone, anyone, would have told you in April that we would be in first place on august 21st, you would have looked on in disbelief.
We are in first place, we are in a pennant race and we have one of the most exciting teams in baseball..ENJOY THE RIDE…
“Well, I don’t have to have my best game with someone like you. Go read a book. You might learn something.”
You still talking?
Bats need to wake up in the early innings
get home…crappy week, crappy Saturday so far…say to myself, well, at least the game is on. turn it on just in time to see Tommy give up 3 runs. great.
This is why it is important to have an offense that doesn’t sit back and wait to win at the end of the game. Hanson is no Smoltz, he is no Avery. He had a good streak going but he wasn’t ready to pitch today.
Brava, yeah. I am sure he will calm down next start.
DOB won’t have to hear this today . . .
Tommy looked to be pouting there again. He gets to pouting and can’t do anything right. If he keeps composure, he crushes people.
Like I said in the 1st inning, BALLGAME! If any of you think the Braves are winning this game, you are either mentally challenged or a complete homer. Hopefully the Phillies lose.
Well said Braves One @5:15
August 21st, 20105:16 pm
N8, those who have to resort into insulting your intelligence are probably not too intelligent themselves.
Georgia beat Hawaii in the llws…they looked sharp
Score some Damn runs PLEASE
August 21st, 20105:17 pm
No five runs is not too much, but the bats need to wake up a little earlier than the 7th inning to get momentum in the dugout of the good guys.
August 21st, 2010
I’m with you…the only drawback is Strasburg will probably only be allowed to go five, maybe six innings at most.
Tommy Hanson is considered better than Kenshin Kawakami? Not seeing the logic…
Diaz = non-tender this offseason.
Thank goodness there is someone in the pen.
Thanks for the update Katherine
Steve from OH
Eh, whaddyagonnado, N8? People take out their frustrations on a blog and ruin it for the rest of us. It’s not our fault they’re pissed about something.
Either that, or they’re just completely mentally juvenile. I want it mommy and I want it now! Seems to be the attitude I see on here at gametime, anyway. Knee-jerkery abounds.
“You still talking?”
Not to you. I don’t waste time in dialogue with people who have nothing of substance to offer.
August 21st, 20105:18 pm
Nick, you call ballgame when the other team singles, why should we listen to you now?
We just cant hit lefties
The dreaded Strasburg pitch count is already making me depressed.
At least Halladay isn’t going to for Philly again.
Is Hanson injuried?
I really hate these announcers.

You’re welcome jeffrey
TTTT-Thumbody Thed Thats Thupid
Have not been impressed with “Stoneface”(Hanson) since he’s been with the Braves. He needs to be at Gwinnett.
fredi is next
This is getting old…. Braves score no runs in early innings, pitchers much feel like they have no room for error. Except for innings 7-9, this is the April Braves these days. Down 5 runs now… not looking good.
August 21st, 20105:19 pm
“you are either mentally challenged”
now Nick is making fun of mentally challenged people
“N8, those who have to resort into insulting your intelligence are probably not too intelligent themselves.”
Yeah, you’ve joined the bandwagon as well. Just want to fit in, don’t you?
Now not only does the offense suck but the pitching and defense sucks too. I don’t see how anybody is sold on this team. They are pathetic.
Had Diaz hustled that all the way, he would have been safe.
I’d say we go quietly into the Chicago afternoon today
The Braves management does need to start going for hitters, as well. We struggle to win when our hitters can’t score two or three runs, even if our pitchers hold them to two or three.
August 21st, 20105:20 pm
For the life of me, im still trying to see how in the world this team is in first after all this time. Gotta be the pitching staff!
Hanson is really NOT that good this year. Granted the past few games he got no run support, but he is clearly looking bad.
Lee is just awful looking right now, what a way to make a debut. 0-5 and all strikeouts!!! And every ball they hit is right at someone.
Not gonna come back today folks.
Somebody said you can’t spell and are stupid. Hanson allowed a few crappy singles after a few walks…. yeah… send him to Gwinnett because he has a stone face… dumb a**
Now can we get that run in??
There’s a start.
I Love Liberty Media, not really, but I do not see the need to start insulting anyone, as you obviously do, bud.
Maybe there’s a start!
just missed a homerun
Final score in 1st round of LLWS:
Columbus GA 6 – Hawaii 2
mr hanson hasn’t figured out yet how to succeed when he doesn’t have good stuff.
it’s very pointless to even try to debate with you, as you must be a child. Trey, 5:02
those who have to resort into insulting your intelligence are probably not too intelligent themselves Trey, 5:16
sha-BAM! Now who’s the smarterest??
August 21st, 20105:21 pm
Something finally goes our way!!!!
Well, Ross showed up today.
Come on guys, let’s see some back to back hits and get at least one of those runs back!!
TTTT-Thumbody Thed Thats Thupid -
You do realize that in Tommy’s last 5 games before today he had an ERA under 1.00? Not his fault he hasn’t won- he’s been outstanding
how about another triple ankles
Stretch…have you not seen this team this season? You never say they can’t come back.
“Not to you. I don’t waste time in dialogue with people who have nothing of substance to offer.”
STILL talking? You’re too funny dude.
August 21st, 20105:22 pm
jeffrey, you can trick me today. Recently, I can’t see the box score in the corner on Fox because my tv cuts it off for some reason. So, whenever I step away and come back I have no idea what the score is.
So this is what it feels like to have your starter get lit up a little bit. Been so long I forgot. Guess the Bravos have their work cut out in this one. Of course the percentages say that they will likely (gasp!) lose this one. Guess the bloggers can go ahead and call SEASON! again like the last time the Braves lost.
jeffrey, me of course! Nah, but that was actually not an insult but a question, as I do not see any need to debate with people who may be children.
“I Love Liberty Media, not really, but I do not see the need to start insulting anyone, as you obviously do, bud.”
I’ve lost count as to how many times you’ve called Nick, Mitchell, and the various Phillies’ fans “idiot” and other names. Do you have a memory problem?
August 21st, 20105:23 pm
i see Cy Young has toed the rubber against the Braves again today…
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
