Weather channel showing it pretty messy until 5pm then everything starts clearing out. How long will they go to try to get a game in?
The weather just south of Atlanta is beautiful. 61 right now with a high of 70, a little windy. We should’ve had the game in ATL.

RAIN DELAY?? Booooooo!
April 2nd, 20111:02 pm
We need some Offense today. 2 hits in the last 8 innings Thursday.
April 2nd, 20111:04 pm
keylargo, we will hit the ball today! Chipper goes yard. We score 7. DOB, is it raining hard?
ok, I’m back
BMac wasn’t actually DL’d with the concussion. He was DL’d in ‘06 with that ankle sprain…
April 2nd, 20111:05 pm
Yeah, weather’s awesome here…
Weather.com says it is not raining in DC, so hard to go by that.
looks like it suppose to rain pretty hard for about 4 hours. gonna be a long time until they start playing

Chip and Joe just said 1:30 pm start
Rain almost stopped. Tarp getting ready to come off.
Predicted start time is 1:30pm!!
The Nationals’ announcers said the tarp was coming off and the start would only be delayed a few minutes.

I was thinking he never went on the DL with the concussion- I know he missed about a week or so- and I had forgotten about the ankle- I now remember seeing it and just being glad it wasn’t broken (and that he didn’t tear up his knee)
But I guess they might be wrong about that… Unless 25 minutes is “a few”.
“we will hit the ball today! Chipper goes yard. We score 7. ”
You honestly think the Braves are gonna score 7 hitting in cold weather and against a Pitcher who has given them fits in the past…?
Not to mention the ball doesn’t carry at Nationals park…
We will score 3 or 4 and come out with a win
April 2nd, 20111:08 pm
Perfect- just in time for me to leave… stupid rain!
April 2nd, 20111:10 pm
T-Hawkin: Yup, I sure do. “Bank on it!”
I just don’t like seeing Chipper playing on rain soaked fields…I will be Glad when we get out of D.C. Who made it mandatory that opening day has to start in so many cold weather cities…?
Bad things happen when Chipper plays on F’d up fields…
April 2nd, 20111:14 pm
Yeah, he missed a week—I was just makin’ sure everyone else knew that.
I had forgotten about the ankle- I now remember seeing it and just being glad it wasn’t broken (and that he didn’t tear up his knee)
Yeah, that was quite scary…and had he gotten his knee torn up there, his career would prob’ly have been a totally different story…
April 2nd, 20111:15 pm
1:30? Sweet! So not too much longer…
cabravesfan just in time for me to leave… stupid rain!
Rain cann really be mean like that…

Ok Dude, Rock On…:)
I’m gonna have a low tolerance this season for lack of run support for Big Red
The dude had a losing record despite posting a 3.33 era…instead of winning 10 games last year due to low run support he should’ve won 15 easily
Not necessarily a bad thing, CAB. I think that is part of what fandom is. To me that is the strange thing about other fans coming here and essentially saying that we see the Braves through tinted glasses. Much of what a fan expresses is “hopes”. Sometimes some fans lose sight that they are doing that and get dogmatic about it, but fans are going to have hopes for their team.

Can you refresh my memory? What happened to Mac in 2006? Thanks. I’m feeling my age when it comes to remembering things.
April 2nd, 20111:23 pm
McP and Moe,

April 2nd, 20111:30 pm
Wuz watching Cubs/Pirates and our pal Matte Diaz is not starting. Wonder what’s up there?

In reference to our back and forth last week–THIS is the Hansonesque crap that bothers me.
FEAR THE KID

Can’t lose to teams like this if we want to be taken for real in 2011.
