N8 is on fire!!!!!! I agree with alot of it though who is gonna take over 3rd when chipper hangs up the spikes and 28M would be nice to apply in some other areas
February 27th, 20117:31 pm
I did not know N8 was a Chipper hater
hates Bobby too.needs to be banned
calf- as in the back lower muscle on the leg
CAB – hmm, looks like he made his red carpet appearance awhile ago
February 27th, 20117:32 pm
Meant FUN TOO. Im off my game today kinda like Proctor
jeffrey d is no longer my friend
February 27th, 20117:33 pm
Ah the gym not the rodeo.
Damn, N8, you really hate Chipper.
yes, Bat. The gym
February 27th, 20117:34 pm
Your trainer sounds a little mean, cab.
February 27th, 20117:35 pm
BraveHeart has posted stuff that makes sense as well dont want any other to get “sensitive” cause they were left out. LMAO
She takes great joy in my pain
Hello Every one! don’t you just love it how Phillie Fan appears all of a suddenly! Where was he when his team lost? Like Heyward striking to end the Phillies run….. Quite funny I think. Would’ve came on earlier,but didn’t wan’t to spoil any thing.My point is Phillie Fan you suck! Get over your self, and let’s see what happens at the end of next year. Your just like all your Phillies loosers……Smile…..
February 27th, 20117:36 pm
jeffery having fun with links again? I quit clicking them.
February 27th, 20117:38 pm
Hey WARD did you hear that Utley has Tendonitis in his knee?
My point is Phillie Fan you suck! _ Ward
Ward likes to cut to the chase.
February 27th, 20117:39 pm
It’ll all be worth it though, right cab?
“WOW I did not know N8 was a Chipper hater. I will have to stop reading his blogs, thought he was a true Braves fan.” LTBF
WOW. I didn’t know your comprehension of the English language was so bad. Good luck in life. You’re going to need it.
February 27th, 20117:40 pm
That’s what I’m hoping
Ward, how do you feel about Phillie Fan?……Smile…..
The Phils have a avg player age at 31.8 or something those boys are getting old look what Utley is going through now
February 27th, 20117:41 pm
I think jeffrey caught you in one of your more unflattering moments.
Ward how do you feel about Phillie Fan?
February 27th, 20117:42 pm
JHey’s better: No I didn’t hear that, and that makes it all the more funny……..I don’t think Procter will make the team, and if Beachy pitches like he did today, I don’t see that either….But all the games looked good, and that saying some thing……smile…..
WOW. I didn’t know N8 was so condescending
Yeah, but I’ve checked in on the Phillies blog a few times to gauge the fans’ reaction to Utley’s knee injury and have not run across one who disparaged him. Chipper should be so lucky.
February 27th, 20117:43 pm
Phillie Fan: Is just a trash talker, and so much for brotherly loved City……
February 27th, 20117:44 pm
Oh come on. It’s good-natured and humorous. It’s not like I’m saying “Hey everybody, my brother needs donations to afford his brain transplant or he’ll die. Please click this link and give what you can. God bless.”
And then when you click on the link, it’s a dog sniffing another dog’s butt.
It’s not like I do that.
UghOhh people are starting to use BIG WORDS ON THIS BLOG NOW LOL
February 27th, 20117:45 pm
RIP Duke Snider
He was my idol growing up………….Sad Day
February 27th, 20117:46 pm
Ward and N8 came out with the 6 ounce gloves today!!!!!! LOL
February 27th, 20117:48 pm
Just thought I’d get you curious,Bat.
Click and see, it’s only Orlando Bloom.
February 27th, 20117:49 pm
some day jeffrey is gonna seriously want us to click a link and nobody is gonna do t cause of all the “wolf crying”
Some one should ask Utley how his Manchion or million dollar home is doing?
Kudos FLABRAVESFAN1 His records are still standing up RIP Duke
February 27th, 20117:50 pm
Bloom County is better than Orlando Bloom
Hey Chase Utley, how’s your million dollar home doing??
Chew on THAT!
February 27th, 20117:51 pm
my manchion is gettin’ kinda run down
Even though he is Hurt I have ALOT of respect for Chase Utley he plays the game the right way
February 27th, 20117:52 pm
Uggla or a healthy Utley? Any takers on this subject?
February 27th, 20117:53 pm
JHey’s better; N8 essays are boring so I don’t read them, and to long , and meaningless….
“N8, the fans (and I use the term lightly) that will take offense to what Chipper said are the very ones he was targeting with his comments” Brava
I agree. I didn’t take offense to it, because I’ve just questioned his ability to come back fully and be worth the monetary value of his contract. Not his desire to “steal” the money.
My problem as a guy questioning whether he can make the comeback complete is that any negative energy spent bickering with or slamming guys that “live in their mother’s basements” is time not spent actually working on the comeback.
NOTHING good can come out of publicly making those comments. NOTHING.
If you are of the belief that he can use it as motivation to do better? Fine. I agree. But he can use it for motivation just the same without talking about it.
Like I said. My initial anger is at Jeff Schultz for simply being the moron that he usually is. I’m not sure whether DOB wants that job or not (he’s damn good at the one he does), but most sports writers that cover and write about multiple sports for a newspaper usually sacrifice actual knowledge of each sport by trying to cover all of them.
When Jeff writes about the Braves, more often than not I question whether he has actually watched any games or paid any attention to them whatsoever. He’s usually that far off.
I feel like I (as a fan) have a pulse on what most Braves fans feel about Chipper and the few that question him doing it for money seem so few and far between. Yet Shultz dedicates the whole premise of a story about it, as though it’s the “talk of the town” and the entire sports world.
I’ll tell you this. The only fans that actually know what Chipper is making are the nutjobs like us on the blogs and most of us on the blogs and the callers to the radio shows have NOT been claiming Chippers out for a paycheck. Just not hearing or reading it.
I’m not angry at Chipper for feeling how he feels and saying what he said. I’m angry that he bothered to publicly respond to what Jeff was asking him to begin with. He fell for it hook, line and sinker. Now he looks like the one that’s pissing and moaning with the fans, BECAUSE of the headline that went with that story.
Typical AJC from my angle.
Well I knew without clicking it was not O. Bloom, I’m on to jeffery. I did see the fat dude though, no wonder cab was ticked.
February 27th, 20117:54 pm
ahhhhhhhh got my SOUTHERN COMFORT AND SWEETTEA NOW FEELS LIKE SPRING IS COMMING
Nolie: I like your comment…..smile….
Utley has been the better all around player so far
February 27th, 20117:55 pm
Hey N8 they are little long Ward has some validaty there
Was there another essay. Who cares??????
that any negative energy spent bickering with or slamming guys that “live in their mother’s basements” is time not spent actually working on the comeback. N8
February 27th, 20117:56 pm
“JHey’s better; N8 essays are boring so I don’t read them, and to long , and meaningless…” Ward
Typed by the guy who at 2:00 AM and after, usually posts 30-40 “one liners” to himself.
Well done. I’ve let most of your idiotic posts for the past couple months go by, because it wasn’t worth my time to have a battle of wits with an unarmed man. Perhaps that will change moving forward…..
Even though he is a Phillie gotta give Utley his Just Do GOOD PLAYER
February 27th, 20117:57 pm
Yeah, but patella tendinitis can be tough to shake-off. Especially once the season gets going, it’s going to have an effect this year.
February 27th, 20117:58 pm
Yeah nolie, perhaps that’s a strawman theory in itself. I’m sure Chipper has put in plenty of work. I’ll retract that section of my comment.
I will not however, retract my comment that nothing good can come out of what he said.
If you think otherwise, I’d be curious to read your reasoning. Please chime in.
February 27th, 20117:59 pm
Im telling you the N8/Ward battle is like watching UFC 79 LOL. Ward N8 does make some solid points though thats why I read them
yeah I thought for a while that he was BAS, but his stuff is waaay funnier that Steves
N8 I’m so sad….. Tell some one who cares….smile…..
February 27th, 20118:01 pm
he prolly should have kept his mouth shut, but I don’t think it’s all that big a thing.
His haters will always hate him and most rational folks will understand what and why he said what he did.
How about the Oscars! Staring in about a half an hour…….smile…..
February 27th, 20118:02 pm
Ward, I’m just saying that the cumulative nonsense of your 50 posts a day, isn’t any more “non boring” or meaningful because they are short.
It is VERY rare that you actually make a point worth jumping into a discussion over. Just thought you should know.
N8 is passionate about whats going on with them team thats a good thing because all my friends that are BRAVES fans will tell you that Im the most passionate about the team. When they mess up on the most basic play Im pissed gotta watch from the 1st to final pitch even though in that 93 series against the Phils it was REALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL Hard
In about 27 minutes, and counting Ocsar night….
February 27th, 20118:04 pm
Christian Bale will win Best Supporting actor……My prediction……smile….
February 27th, 20118:05 pm
There’s a bunch of true fans and the people who actually want to take the time to get to know me know who I am.
From the Chipper /shultz article…..I do not see what offends some people,unless your in your moms basement typing away.
February 27th, 20118:06 pm
N8–I agee with you that NOTHING good can come out of Chipper making those comments. However, I gotta agree your posts are ungodly long. . . No offense. There’s a lot to be said for being consise.
I agree nolie. Which is why my bigger beef is with Schultz.
What’s your take? Do you think the majority of fans questioning his ability to comeback (I refuse to use the word hater – because I think one who is questioning him doesn’t necessarily have to be a hater – you understand. ), are questioning a 39 year old coming off of two “not up to Chipper Jones standards” seasons, and a major knee surgery and how it will affect the team?
Or are they in your mind questioning his monetary motivations?
Maybe I’m skewed in that MY angle is that I’m more concerned about his production, rather than worrying about his motivation to comeback.
I don’t really care WHY he’s coming back. I do however, care WHAT HE DOES when he comes back and how it helps (or hurts) the team.
But I just don’t see that many people questioning him doing it for the money.
February 27th, 20118:07 pm
Now I Know it seems IM backing N8 a wholeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee lot but what he said was not just a jab at Ward in my eyes There are sooooooooooooooo many people that post utter nonsense here everyday that makes me want to just scream cause you can tell they dont know what they are talking about and go to the ball park just to get sauced not to watch the game
February 27th, 20118:09 pm
cab, I dedicated a brick on my wall to you. I’ll let you see it some time this week after I’m done commemorating it.
unless your in your moms basement typing away
I prefer to think ot it as the downstairs den
February 27th, 20118:11 pm
Guy’s we had three solid games…. No wins yet,but it’s only Spring Training…smile…..All the games have been close, and exciting……smile….
Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All
February 27th, 20118:13 pm
Howard, Utley and Rollins are all on the decline. They still have a solid club, no doubt, but, they have some issues as well.
February 27th, 20118:14 pm
Today’s pics -
Just saw Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban at the Oscar’s Red Carpet. She apparently likes short men.
Point is to ALL the Bloggers we are ALL Braves fans except for Philly Fan dont know why he would even post something here in the 1st place and WE ALL want Chipper to be productive and stay in the lineup but if he cant and it weighs down the team then its an ISSUE. I love chipper and everything that he has done for the BRAVES but longgggg after he is gone and in Cooperstown JHEY, FF, BMAC and company must gone on an continue to put more banners up in Turner Field. I dont know about the rest of you but IM REALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL tired of seeing those flags in Philly. To win the NL EAST in years past you HAD to ” Go Through Atlanta”.

Ward I know we are in different time zones but,Today was game #2 of Spring training.
February 27th, 20118:16 pm
I will not however, retract my comment that nothing good can come out of what he said.
If you think otherwise, I’d be curious to read your reasoning. Please chime in. _ N8
Okay the mothers basement line made me laugh a little simply because apparently everyone in America uses it.
Playing it straight though, about the money, maybe he could have been more circumspect. He was asked about money though and made it clear he has plenty. No big deal, but coupled with the comments he made the other day about the union meeting saying maybe this is not a good time for guys to be buying a 5000 acre ranch, a million dollar house, or a hundred thousand dollar car. Well considering the mood of the country and all the people out of work, maybe just say I’m doing okay.
February 27th, 20118:17 pm
Chipper is not an issue. Prado will play at least twice a week. We have lots of spare parts to throw in the outfield – Mather, Hinske, Young, Schafer…
Ward—Are you just seeing if we’re paying attention or are you having a few pre-Oscar cocktails?
February 27th, 20118:18 pm
Your right, I was thinking some thing else! Good correction….smile…..
February 27th, 20118:19 pm
I’m honored! I’m pleased I will have at least one useful contribution to society
The Braves have done good so far. I give a solid performance for the first two games…
February 27th, 20118:20 pm
jeffrey, did you create the blog group for March Madness brackets last year?
February 27th, 20118:21 pm
Ward and N8’s little spat is very entertaining……laugh….

To those that dont know I am a United States Marine and have been for the last 12 years I dont want any Thank You’s or “Props” or whatever and will deploy to Afghan within the next year The Atlanta Braves have been a Mainstay in my life and Ive ALWAYS been Very passionate about whats going on with the team when others were talking about football I was talking about how Uggla’s power from the right side will free up some pressure on MAC to be the power go to guy with chipper out of the lineup and ext… Basically what Im saying is there are alot of people from all over the US that have their Foam Tomahawks and pay the wayyyyyyyy over priced like I do MLB Extra Innings just to watch their Braves Play and get on AJC and post their Frustractions, Happiness, Pain and every other emotion they may have about this team no matter if it was a Jab at me or acknowledgement for something Ive said Thank You for Sharing in my passion with me for this TEAM that is what makes US in my eyes anyway different from other MLB fans just like the Mainstay braves people feel like your apart of a FAMILY not just being another FAN! Thank You!!!!!!!!!!
February 27th, 20118:27 pm
N8, your musings usually take up 2/3 of a page, and require 20 minutes to read, then another 20 minutes to discern what you were trying to say (exageration for effect). do you get paid by the word?
Whereas Ward, only writes a line or two, nonsensical or not, big difference…
either way, I am going to have to go with Ward.. he at least gets to the point..
February 27th, 20118:30 pm
Okay… Oscars are starting with Trent Reznor’s score…. this is going to be a great night!
February 27th, 20118:31 pm
I would like “The Fighter” to win best pitcure, but it’s up against some tough competition…..
Any One keepin a Tally on the WARD vs N8 Battle LOL
February 27th, 20118:32 pm
JHey’s better, as a vetran blogger (a favorite around here I might add), it brings me happiness to have a blogger like you aboard.
nolie, shame on you sir for those disgustingly negative comments about this team. Take off the next 6 months? Seasons over?
February 27th, 20118:35 pm
So far Ward has the last word in.
Thanks for your service whether you want it or not JHey’s.
February 27th, 20118:36 pm
TnBrian, don’t be so harsh on nolie. I was egging him on.
TN Brian much appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The only point I was trying to get across people is that to SOME of us me included the Braves are symbol of pride to us as AMERICANS in the best country in the world. To me and others its an escape from from the hard times we all are feeling in this day and age. SERIOUSLY negative or not I appreciate you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m thinking it’s between The Fighter, Inception and Social Network.
February 27th, 20118:37 pm
Yes, JHey’s better, thank you for your service.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
