I tend to treat ugly girls quite well at 2AM.
BAS – Kinda depends on your range factor. If the weighted average is too high, you may want to consider the VORP.
Playing small ball in the 2nd inning, dunno. I will take my chances with Matty driving the ball to the right side in hopes for a big inning. Oh well.

With callup of catcher J.C. Boscan, Braves have 5 Venezuelans. Others: Prado, Infante, Alez Gonzalez, bullpen coach Eddie Perez.
“And I think they’re trying to adopt Melky,” Frank Wren cracked.
Man it’s going to a lot of traffic tonight getting out of the Ted. It’s got to be hard competing with all 2,000 people that are at the game. This is embarrassing and I’m a die hard fan. Atlanta get out and support the team! Regional fans can only do so much the actual fans in the city need to start showing up for the weekday games.
August 31st, 20107:45 pm
yet another leadoff double. runner to 3rd and 1 out and we cant stinkin hit a fly ball .. little things win u games. come on boys.

Did anyone see the highlights of the Rays game last night? Best record in baseball and they had an announced crowd of 11,000…thats pathetic
“Bobby Dews is Old Testament”
August 31st, 20107:47 pm
That was a classic from EJ on Peachtree for those who didn’t get to hear it!
Why is Joe Simpson telling blatant lies? Its obvious this team does not in the practice time defensively, and it will hurt them in the playoffs. Mark my words.

GO BRAVOS. Kick azz.
Is D.Lowe gonna go on the DL?
August 31st, 20107:49 pm
The Mets announcers just took a jab at Francoeur.
With the Mets making 2 outs on 2 pitches to start the inning, they were talking about the 3rd guy taking the first pitch of his AB and what not.
Then they were talking about if a guy makes an out in the first pitch of his first AB, he likely wouln’t swing at the first pitch of the 2nd AB, not wanting to take a chance on making 2 outs on 2 pitches. To which the other announcer said “Unless it’s Francoeur”.
Made me smile.
Bravito199: No, I don’t think so.
August 31st, 20107:50 pm
TedR Any data there on how much time Braves practice vs. Others? Thought not…
Derek Lowe is gay?
Rob from SC
Why did the Braves skip Julio Teheran’s spot after the rain delay yesterday
Josh from NY, yes I saw it and yes it is pathetic.
Can’t be much more than that at the Ted tonight. Equally as pathetic.
August 31st, 20107:51 pm
Josh from NY,
Braves attendance isn’t that much better. Less that 16,000 last week for a Nats game and 18,000 last night. Probably around the same tonight. It’s sad.
Run Ross run!
Is that Willie Mays out there in CF?
Ross with the wheels
August 31st, 20107:52 pm
Holy *@%! Did Rossy just TRIPLE????
If healthy, there is no doubt that Beltran makes that catch. Good for us. Too bad for him. The game needs good players like him to be healthy.
August 31st, 20107:53 pm
ok lead off triple and now 1 out.. can we score him?
bad display of the fundamentals
August 31st, 20107:54 pm
this game should be 2 -0 … unfreakin believable…..
Come on J-Hey
Yup. There’s the team that we all recognize. Not the team that’s one of the statistically best offensive teams in August.
Oh, no. Not this sucking with RISP again.
August 31st, 20107:55 pm
have to swing the bat kid
just pathetic display of fundementals and basics. runner at 3rd less than 2 outs . JUST PITIFUL
August 31st, 20107:56 pm
Another lousy umpire!
Ball never even came close to catching the plate.
That. Was. Not. Even. Close.
JC from DR!
Amazing. Leadoff triple. No runs.
McFann ♥ ;Ô; ♥ ;Ô; ♥
DANGIT!!! Not. A. Strike.
Neight Is it just me or does it look like somebody to a Bedazzler to McFann’s name?
THATS TWICE… hey guys ever heard of a FLY BALL..
Peachtree Hobby TV (almost like the big boys)
So does PTV have a high def broadcast or not? This is two nights in a row that there has been no high def on my cable system. This happened before when PTV broadcasts early week games. Whats up with that? Does TBS steal all the high def gear for their Sunday game of the week and can’t get it back to ATL for the Peachtree broadcast early week?
Too bad we don’t have Fox-trax, Fox-mo or K-zone tonight…
August 31st, 20107:57 pm
But yeah, Heyward has to turn on that pitch and hit it 30 rows deep in the RF seats. Ball just hung and spun on the inner half.
Too close to take. But it wasn’t a strike, so whaddya do?
Tough inning for the Braves’ hitters there.
August 31st, 20107:58 pm
who cares if it wasnt a strike thats twice in the last 2 innings a runner at 3rd and less than 2 outs. and we cant even hit a freakin fly ball…
Minor just got the same pitch that Heyward had called k 3. I can live with that.
August 31st, 20107:59 pm
Braves have failed to score after leadoff single in 1st, leadoff double in 2nd, leadoff triple in 3rd. Leadoff homer anyone?
That clicking sound you hear is thousands of folks with a brain logging off now that the in game whining has started
Brian from SC
jeff, why is it that you have posted the same thing about 8 times in a row? Give it a rest, take a deep breath, count to 10…
August 31st, 20108:00 pm
So does PTV have high def tonight or is MLB network a Mets feed?
Jeff, you forget.We don’t like those early runs.No runs til the 7th!
Wow…how the hell is that not a strike fo rMinor???
Minor thought he had him struck out. This ump is HORRIBLE.
August 31st, 20108:01 pm
MLBN has Braves feed.
Wayne in Utah
What’s the story with this umpire? Is he calling a small zone or a large zone. Maybe a variable strike zone?
I like the leadoff HR idea, then another 6-8 hits after that for a good inning.
August 31st, 20108:02 pm
Yeah DOB, leadoff Jack’ll work!
August 31st, 20108:03 pm
August 31st, 2010
MLBN has Braves feed.
Thanks for the info
Then I’m ticked that my local Charter cable hasn’t picked up the high def feed the last two nights. grrrr
COME ON MATT!!!! Dive for that ball.
Not out my way. Doing the gameday audio thingy tonight.
At least Minor is getting his pitch count down since the first two innings. I guess if we get 6 out of him that would be OK.

Folks here are so laid-back, I think lots of them are just too damned lazy to leave the couch. Also safer for drunks to watch from the comfort of a Lazy Boy, Lawd knows they’s plenty’a them heeuh..
At least the Mutts aren’t bringing their guys home!
just basic fundamentals and the coach in me sorry… and yes thats true its not the 7th… and the game isnt on MLBNetwork in NY.
Positives: Minor looks good (I say as he gives up a bloop); Ernie Johnson is so much better than Chip; Our catcher hits a triple; I just finished my second glass of wine and life is good.
August 31st, 20108:05 pm
Wayne in Utah
Well for me MLBN is Braves feed and MLB Extra Innings feed. I think whatever feed MLBEI has then that is what MLBN has (only if it’s scheduled to be on MLBN).
August 31st, 20108:06 pm
Mets announcers ragging on him for bunting there. Called it a TERRIBLE play. With the pitcher on deck.
Even the home team announcers in NY rag on their team. I love it.
Nothing like to epic ex-Mets players (Ron Darling and Keith Hernandez) ripping on you on the air.
Minor has a high WHIP, let’s deal him after the game!
August 31st, 20108:07 pm
yes im lazy today and tonight its hot up here in western ny near Lake Ontario. my bad people just shakin my head and want minor a W thats all.
Minor’s good for 6 or 7 tonight.
August 31st, 20108:09 pm
Minor should take Lowe’s spot in the playoff rotation.
Minor has thrown a lot of pitches already, so, I don’t think he goes past 6.
Wayne, you are joking. Right?
August 31st, 20108:10 pm
Maybe the third time will be the charm
I was wondering about that. On the one hand, he got the pitcher up so they can start the next inning with the leadoff man. On the other hand, you reduce your chance to score to about 10% at that point. I would be OK with a weak hitter doing what he did.
What happened to that leadoff dinger?
The Braves have to get this run in.
haha lead off double again.. can we score here LOL…
Mets got the Braves hitters right where they want them after the leadoff double.
Oh cr*p, another leadoff double…
August 31st, 20108:11 pm
Somebody, please bring Martine home!
DLEE comes through
Yay D Lee!!!
They score!!!!!!!!!! Finally!
FINALLYY. Thank you Derek Lee..
RBI machine….D lee
Holy Jonny Damon arm batman!
August 31st, 20108:12 pm
Mets are lucky that hanger didn’t get deposited in the upper deck.
Nice job Lee.
You figured me out!
Barry Bonds is sitting somewhere laughing at that throw from LF.
Chris from the Rock
Vizciano was pulled after 1 inning tonight in WV. I wonder what happened.
August 31st, 20108:13 pm
Heyward will punish Niese next time
August 31st, 20108:14 pm
He does have a nice curveball when he keeps it low in the zone.
Consecutive two-hit games for Lee
August 31st, 20108:15 pm
I’d still rather have Ankiel hitting here instead of Melky, though he has come up clutch on occasion. I just like Ankiel’s bat better.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
