August 30th, 2010
Or Wednesday, but close enough
Just tuning up my singing voice there…lol
Omar = hitting machine in 2010
Jay Bruce homers in his first at-bat of the night and the packed house at GABP goes wild.
Or not. The Braves would appear to have quite a few more fans at the moment.
Not that it matters. The games count just the same whether there are 52,000 or 2 to see it.
Omar just keeps hitting
Omarrrrrrrrrrr……ESPN is slobbering all over themselves about omar
Way to hustle, Omarrrr!
August 30th, 20107:28 pm
Close. I thought he was out.
But, I guess he was safe.
Omar is what other teams dream of, but can’t have, just like the nerd after the Hot Captain of the Cheer-leading squad.
August 30th, 20107:29 pm
Finally, I get to watch a game
Good stuff, Marteeeeen.
Nice! Other way by Prado-Odarp
Good ab Marteeeen.
August 30th, 20107:30 pm
Good job Marteeeeen!
Come on D-Lee.
Get a hit.
Just 3 of our all-stars getting it done.
Lee, now it is time for you to pay dividends or show us You’re washed up.
August 30th, 20107:31 pm
Make him work D.
Lee, double calling it!
Derrek, please don’t strike out.
August 30th, 20107:32 pm
D.Lee good job
Way to go D Lee!
Hey, I didn’t know he could do that.
Single, but good enuff!
NC State Nate
August 30th, 20107:33 pm
If DLee gets hot.. our lineup suddenly looks potent…
Time for a Big Mac Attack! Tater Time!
Ouch! dawgs barking there.
McFann :Ô: :Ô:
August 30th, 20107:34 pm
August 30th, 20107:35 pm
Misch is mesmerized by Mac’s stunning physique!
Hope Mac’s okay.
August 30th, 20107:36 pm
Mac gets beat up so much behind the plate, what’s one more bruise?
Nah, he’s good…he cann still catch the game, don’t worry about it.
Diaz! 2 taters yesterday, prolly hitless tonight.
August 30th, 20107:37 pm
Jason going to second was a huge play.
He’s da man.
There ya go JJJ ,go get em !
good start to the game.
Derrek Lee will Homer tonight!
August 30th, 20107:38 pm
Matt only had 1 AB yesterday……thats some kinda production!
August 30th, 20107:39 pm
I wish CSS would remove any Braves ads that contain Yunel Escobar!
My bad bfinok
With Manny going to the White Sox, the Dodgers will be paying for 3 White Sox outfielders….
August 30th, 20107:40 pm
from Golden Boy to laughing stock of MLB baseball. Ladies and gentleman Jeff Francoeur
of course as I type this he gets a hit
Friggin Francouer! I can’s stand that guy!
One of these days, this pitching staff will learn how to pitch to Jeff Francoeur.
Throwing breaking balls … in the strike zone … isn’t it.
I Miss Ted Turner (formerly I Love Derrek Lee)
August 30th, 20107:42 pm
Come on, JJ. Strikes, please.
chilidog75 …the pitching staff wants frenchy in the lineup…..may need a strikeout late in the game.
August 30th, 20107:43 pm
Geez. Here we go.
August 30th, 20107:44 pm
JJ is not looking good tonight. Hang in there Jair!
Gonzo never makes an error.
I guess you actually have to make a play though for it to be an error.
Wow- that was a really funky hop…
really JJ? Two games in a row you get a lead and you start to give it up?
August 30th, 20107:45 pm
Did you see what happened to the ball? No way anyone gets that…
Come on JJ.
August 30th, 20107:46 pm
The pitch to Francoeur was a bad one. But hey. Mistakes happen. JJ keeps walking these light-weight hitters because he cant locate his f’n fastball at all. And it bites him with a bad hop .. and now its a tied game. Just like that.
So we had the lead for all of four batters.
August 30th, 20107:47 pm
Forgot the runners advanced.
I’m so stupid. I’m such an idiot.
JJ! gotta buckle down on these knuckleheads!
JJ throwing a lot of pitches!
this is very disappointing. we need JJ’s start in Colorado to be a fluke, and this isn’t exactly calming my concerns. if he starts to go the way of Derek Lowe, that pretty much gives us 1 consistently reliable starter. we need JJ to pull it together fast and stop wasting leads.
Relax errybody, just gotta go back to work is all.
August 30th, 20107:48 pm
and the walk scores … some of the pitchers are starting to become a little annoying
Mitchell watch the damn game and try to become a student of baseball. Ball took a bad bounce.
So if it was a bad hop, you can stop blaming JJ too.
Apparently JJ and Hanson are having a contest to determine who sucks more.
Come on Jurrjens…
so much for that lead.
Apparently JJ didnt get the memo to throw strikes
August 30th, 20107:49 pm
JJ’s going to make it through four at this rate.
Starting pitching is starting to become quite worrisome here late in the year.
Nice block! Ow, again…
On side note, can we just send D.Lowe, and 5mill to the cubs for Marlon Byrd?
“going to struggle to”
JJ just isn’t as sharp as he was last year.
Brave4life- 1995 all over again???
Whats is wrong with our pitchers the past few series
way to give it right back to em. good job.
August 30th, 20107:50 pm
got out of it……..
So if it was a bad hop, you can stop blaming JJ too.
I would agree with that. Out of the inning with no runs if the dp is turned with the pitcher coming up.
Brave4life- 1995 all over again??? – i think they’re wearing out.
The cubs just traded Derrek Lee in a salary dump…don’t think they’d want to take on DLowe’s contract…
you know, the funny thing is, as much as we all get frustrated with our offense, even when we do score runs, our pitchers not named Hudson give them right back, so i’m not sure it would matter how many more runs we’d have scored this season
yeah… that ball to Gonzo was a Fulton County Stadium bounce… but starting things off w/ a hanging breaking ball to Frenchy was horrible
August 30th, 20107:51 pm
i like the way you think JoeBrave. if we can get rid of Lowe and get another team to pay even $10 of his salary, we’ve at least gained something.
August 30th, 20107:52 pm
Cubs would only be taking on 5 mil.
Lowe =15 mil
Braves send 5 mil
now subtract Byrd at 5 mil, Lowe for 5 mil
What kind of “fan” expects starters to never give up any runs? JJ is pitching just fine. Francouer is a Braves killer just like Gant was after he was shown the door. JJ is getting ground balls like he should.
Glaus could be a big bat off the bench or a 1B or perhaps even a 3B if the Braves need him there.
And hey, when we’re playing in the AL park during the world series he can DH!
Bad hop or not, JJ gave up a hit to one of the worst hitters in MLB. Then walked the next batter.
August 30th, 20107:53 pm
Chilidog 75 was spot on a 7:52
“JJ is pitching just fine.”
No, he’s not.

Anybody ever figure out how many innings Minor has left, inning-count wise?
We’re gonna need every one he’s got.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
