BamaDude @ #1CowCollege AL

Rochy pops out to Uggla
Uggla caught it!!!! >_>

Ballsy….a 3-2 changeup
and the first slider on a 0-1 pitch to Morse.
Hey everybody! Ready for some Braves baseball.
Nice pick, FF.
Michael Morse ends the top of the second by grounding to Gonzo – good pick Freeman…
what up with the Lowe haters!
Morse grounds out to SS, Nationals strand two in 1st
good pick Freddie!!!
McFann ;Ô; ;Ô;
Nice damage control.
March 31st, 20111:30 pm
In all fairness, Z’s hit was a sinker that missed location by about a foot and did nothing
Nova Scotia Steve
Phewww was a little antsy there for a moment….
freddy can pick it..nice play.
Atta baby D.Lowe ! !
DOB – thanks so much for the PBP on twitter. I know people act like d-bags about it sometimes but it is awesome for those of us on the go.
Tristan, I haven’t hated Lowe since close to the end of last season.
nice scoop by the rook
It’s a good lineup, the nats have. They won’t be easy.
Nice pick there Freddie!
What exactly is wrong with Alex that he can’t make an accurate throw these days?!
Yaa ser. dats what Im talkin bout! Git er done!!!!!
March 31st, 20111:31 pm
DLowe strands TWO !!!
Go Bravos !
Corky Miller's Beer Gut
NICE!!!!!!!! lowe got out of that one like a champ… and good defense dare i say
Nice job of getting out of trouble DLowe.
Due up next inning
I think the Nats need to consider a move to Key West. The weather here today:
Key West (KEYW)
Visability – unlimited
Feels Like 87 °F
Wind S10 mph
And Freddie makes his first “save on a low throw” from AGon
probably right. not hit all that hard, but not a great pitch either. Zimmerman effectively used the hole created by the runner on first.

These STUPID side videos on the site now are slowing down my PC
Jason starts it UP !
here we go !
Thank you, DOB, for your words. Stay warm. Enjoy the day.
My 5yr ol sang anthem at Hawks on Sat. And will at the TED in Aug. Take note on how excited and proud she is after her “performance”. Best part!
Jason leads off the bottom of the second with a long HR!!!!!!
Party at rob’s!
Get it done
What sophomore slump?
March 31st, 20111:33 pm
He sure does like the first at bat of the season, doesn’t he?
Heyward HOMER in his first at-bat for second season in a row, on 2-1 pitch in 2nd inning
HEYWARD! So much for the thumb! This kid is unreal.
Wow, I was thinking that it would be great if Heyward homered in his first at bat of his second season like his first at bat in his first season.
*sigh. Another Opening Day, another home run for Jason. How boring…
J-Hey with another first at-bat homer on Opening Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
De ja vue! YEEEEEEEE HAAAAAAA!!!!!!!
heyward the STUDDDDDD!!!!!!!!
J-hey smoked that one
Enter your comments here
Make a habit out of it, kid…
J-Hey looked like Cat on Hot tin roof and Man…Damn way to go…………
J-Hey is making a tradition of this first at bat homer thing! I like it
Joe said he was ready.
BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE! YOU HAVE GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!
Imagine if mcout and gonzo can have decent off years.
March 31st, 20111:34 pm
Gonzo flies to left…
rob from sc

Party at rob’s!
You are right
Second career opening day HR for Heyward, lets hope that’s an annual thing
Heyward leads off the 2nd with a line-drive home run! If only he’d been hitting second! No wait! Wouldn’t have made any difference.
Touch ‘em all, Jason!!!
Happy baseball, everyone.
me thinks Jason likes Opening Day !!!!!!
For some reason my internet connection was down during the 1st inning.
While I still insist that The Dipper is going to struggle hitting in the #3 slot….it was nice to see both him and McCann get hits to put us on top 1-0. The Dipper did look decent running the bases.
However, it remains to be seen whether he can stay healthy. That’s the big concern, his body breaking down that prevents him from running the bases, prevents him from turning on the 3-2 fastball that Livan threw him that he hit for a double in his first at-bat.
I wouldnt put too much stock in The Dipper’s first at-bat (just as I wouldnt put too much stock in that dribbler that Prado hit in his first at-bat). Let’s see how the stats look after 100 at-bats…after 200 at-bats.
“WELCOME TO THE!!!!………. first game of the season” says carey
It is great that baseball has finally returned to Atlanta. However is this team going to wind up like last year? Or like the Falcons last year? Or like all the other sport teams do here in this fair city? Always non-winners. At least Marta will get you to the games after they cut service for those local residents who supported Marta over the years. Play ball or try act like you are.
Freddie grounds to Adam…

MLB AT NO AUDIO
Ron in Vegas
Love me some Heyward!
nice start today! old man, McFann and Hurtward….go get em, boys!
As for Lowe, let’s hope that last spring training start was a mirage….
Maybe next year they’ll walk the kid in his first PA
Jason – one run produced on offens
Freddy – one run saved on defense.
Meanwhile, Heyward jacks one out to give me 6 points in his first at-bat on my espn.com fantasy baseball team, lol. He tomahawked that pitch by Livan.
JC from DR!
Let’s Go Braves!!!! Let’s win this thing!!
Jhey doing it!!!
March 31st, 20111:36 pm
DLowe grounds to Livan – 2-0 mid-2nd…
Great start Bravos keep it rolling
Is it official that Chipper scored the first run of the 2011 MLB season?
It’s important b/c I am baking him a cake and I need to know what to write on it.
hornleg actually thinks a lecture is in order about chipper’s first at bat…..no kidding wait til after 100 at bats….
Heyward is not thinking slump……….I just don’t see it in that kid!
Who said J wouldn’t get any pitches hitting 6th?
March 31st, 20111:37 pm
FF is going to be a failure this year…. he didn’t hit a homer on his first AB of the year.. lol
So, I really like the new Gameday so far…
March 31st, 20111:38 pm
Nice start by the braves so far…..so happy baseball season is here…I love it!
Hurtward homered off of a fossil…let’s wait til he faces a few live arms before we dance in the streets…
March 31st, 20111:39 pm
Cox Fan, it’s scoreless in NY, so yeah. Chipper scored the first run of the 2011 season.
No Phil, lets dance in the streets, we are up. No use minimizing it. A HR is a HR.
What is wrong with MLB at BAT
Ankiel long fly out to Jason…
That was scary, Heyward got it tho!!!!!!
CJ – leads MLB in Aver.
Jason – leads MLB in HR
Mac – leads in RBI
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
