Melky with 2 not so great ABs these past two games
Last few at bats for Melky, he has literally been swinging after the ball hits the catcher’s glove…
August 21st, 20106:48 pm
Thank you, Melky.
Brave4life-1995 all over again??
Bad at bat for Melky. Have to at least get a sac fly there.
Braves really have the Cubs in a hole here. Bases loaded, after the seventh inning, Brooks Conrad to the plate.
Can a tying Grand Slam really be that far behind?
Wow… Melky have not make contact with the ball in the last 2 at bat. Maybe Conrad can come thru.
Brooks ain’t going deep hitting righty…
Chop It Up All-Star
Didn’t need for Melky to clear the sacks there, just get the runner in from third. Terrible at-bat.

Melk Dud= non-tender.

Trey - 10
Get Brooks back to the minors, now!!!
August 21st, 20106:50 pm
Can you believe this kid?!
ONE RUN GAME
Yeah, I was calling for Brooksy early!!!!
lol he pulled it out of the ivy!!!
Just a base knock Brooksey? More, More, More…awesome dude!
Alright, a bases clearing double and some booting of the baseball by the Cubs. That’ll do.
Close enough for disco.
Long Time Braves Fan
Wish Nick would get lost, we can’t win every game, but we might win this one
Need a clutch 2 out hit
I called for Melky there, but that AB shows why he ain’t a big upgrade over Ankiel. He’s an OK hitter but doesn’t have the range to play CF regularly.
If it sticks in the Ivy, but if the outfielder grabs the ball, the ball is in play – sucka!!
Man, Brooks just miss a Grand slam…
August 21st, 20106:51 pm
HEYWARD = K OR GROUNDOUT ..
And this hit was from the right side!
The Late Show starring Brooks Conrad.
here’s a chance for heyward
Clutch Conrad strikes again!
This 8th inning sure feels a lot like the 9th did on Friday….
Get Mad JHey.
Gonna make J-Hey beat them…come on rookie!!
Make ‘em pay Heyward.
Walking Omar to get to Bust-Ward, LMAO.
Time to shine J-Hey
Looks like this shut Nick up, where do the trolls go when the Braves score?
another game winning hit?
August 21st, 20106:52 pm
Damn Brooks nearly went deep righty. The man just has stones.
J-Hey…don’t take a fastball down the middle…
Didn’t Nick say the final would be 5-1?
groundout to 2b or k?
Let’s Go Hey-Ward
Hit by pitch!
August 21st, 20106:53 pm
Huge break there.
Come on Marteeeeen! (And shut up Don!)
take one for the team
Heyward HBP fills the sacks again.
Marteeeeeeeeeen to the plate.
Could you ask for any better chance to get the tie or the lead?
This is fun.
Let’s go Prado!!!!!!!!!!!
Damn it, I wanted J-Hey to bat.
Don’t have TV…did it hit him….hopefully not the thumb.

OK will we score again:?
make up error time Marteen
Setting up for Lee to either be the hero or the goat.
would love another double
Would kill for a solid single here…go Marteen!!
Mudderlandeeeeee for Marteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen
So my cousin has nicknamed Heyward ‘’strike one” …
Because he takes the first pitch so often. I mean, I don’t agree, but it is funny.
D. Lee gonna get a chance in the 9th.
Still got the 9th to go.
August 21st, 20106:55 pm
Prado. great at bat… not a 3 hole hitter.
really Marteen? an easy grounder?
Gonna be a ninth inning win, I feel it!!!!
he stopped going to right. that’s why prado is struggling to drive in runs.. pitch him away and he’ll groundout to SS
was that you? You changed your name???
August 21st, 20106:56 pm
So what is Prado’s average with men in scoring position?
Wanted Jason to hit! Bad luck there….
Prado a weak ground out.
But, a little dose of Every Day Jonny, a little bit of Lee, Diaz, and Gonzalez, a healthy dose of Wagner, and Braves can have their 23rd last AB win.
Lee-Diaz-Mac up next inning, hopefully we can score a run or 2
cab? no..i just now got home and opened my laptop. that was my first post on this blog since….? yesterday after work..
Good grief, as good a hitter Martin is, he is not clutch at all
August 21st, 20106:57 pm
I meant on Twitter…
Prado is not a three-hole hitter – this I agree with.
I’m not just saying that because he JUST grounded out either.
I think the line-up should be
Then mix and mash with who-ever Bobby decides to fill out the line-up card with…
Gotta hold ‘em…
not good since the DL
I Love Derrek Lee (formerly I Hate Liberty Media/I Hate Troy Glaus)
Still in it.
If the Braves pull this one out, Phillies can suck eggs … Salmonella filled eggs.
Man, BROOKSIE is un-freakin’ real. Did you see that stat through 6 and from the 7th on? Unreal.
August 21st, 20106:58 pm
a storm is rolling in now, lots of thunder. if my satellite goes out ….
Is it just me, or did it look like the ball didn’t hit Heyward, and he was acting?
Melky had a nice two games in a row. That’s his season highlight.
Now I just need to figure out if he’s even more worthless than Ankiel or not.
cab – oh…yes. didnt like my first name being in it.

Right, Manny. I mean, Prado is only hitting over .400 since he returned. Brilliant.
Conrad came in slugging .560 w/ 7 HRs in 96 ABs vs righties, .308 w/ no homers in 26 ABs vs. lefties. (Doubled off lefty Marshall in 8th inn today)
Will Marmol try to close it??/
Good to know…that would have been kinda freaky if it was someone else
