worst hitting team in baseball
Way to go Alex!!!!!!!!!
Even if we get a lot of hits, which we don’t do very often, we still don’t score a lot of runs. Just fundamentally bad on offense.
May 27th, 20119:22 pm
Wilkin Ramirez is a loser. He’ll never make it.
We just need another team around our pitchers our team S**ks
Another meaningless hit.
Case and point: Reds have hardly hit the ball at all, and have scored 3 runs, whereas we’ve taken some walks, hit a few balls hard, and have had two guys called out incorrectly at 2nd and have no runs. This kinda luck can’t last all season…
Way to go call up…
Linebrink for Cy
May 27th, 20119:23 pm
Wilkin Ks, already showing he’ll fit right in
T for Texas
Damn. I’m cooking and just wiped cayenne pepper in my left eye. At least I have some vodka to kill the pain. Ah the irony, as it is more than likely the vodka’s fault.
I’m liking Schafer thus far.
How was that a meaningless hit?
double scores 2.
May 27th, 20119:24 pm
Schafer swung…and made contact!
Wilkin Ramirez=Pedro Cerrano
Correction 2 meaningless hits.
JC from DR! (You gotta tip your cap to ____)
Station-to-station, single-to-single offense.
May 27th, 20119:25 pm
Another typical Braves line: 0 runs and 5 hits. Getting so tired.
Mike Freaking Leake. All you can do is laugh at this point.
somebody needs to SLAP THIS TEAM upside the face
May 27th, 20119:26 pm
The Braves have made some very good trades with the Detroit Tigers,however, I can promise you that Wilken Ramirez will NOT be a guy that will haunt Dombrowski’s dreams.
Martin doing his best to screw it all up tonight…
Mike Leake has 5 scoreless innings against the Braves to bring his ERA down to 5.01.
“It’s just one of those nights” every single night with this team.
May 27th, 20119:27 pm
Linebrink in for Braves
and to think I bought tickets to the Hamels sat and sun hahaha. No way in he11 I’m going to travel from raleigh nc to Atlanta to watch these bum minor league braves. They’re not worth the money not the way they play. This team is GARBAGE OFFENSIVLY IT’S BEYOND PATHETIC!!!!!!!
@ Cabrafan: Those hits were meaningless because runners were stranded again.
Just don’t call him Cy! The cops are here tonight…linebrinkofdisaster….oh boy.
And Whats Really FUB’R is that The Melk-Dud has more Rbi’s that Chipper and B-Macc respectively
Boo-WA-WA!!! (Tears for fears!) I need a homer hankee?
BRAVES FAN IN NJ
Braves new slogan Let us make all your pitchers look like Cy Young Candidates!!!!
May 27th, 20119:28 pm
And Tommy doing his best D-Lowe impression. About 100 pitches in 5 innings…
Tomahawkin: Good call.
They had not been stranded when you typed that comment. And just because they were left doesn’t make them meaningless…
I hate this team.
You gotta be kidding me Freddy!!!
May 27th, 20119:29 pm
You know what I would do to make a point? Give the whole freakin team the day off tomorrow. That’s right, just call it in FG! Our players are not even trying. (None of them are working in the cages….taking extended BP).
Braves have no heart, they suck…
If I were FW, at this point regardless of whether its his fault or not (though I feel he does deserve some blame) I would fire LP and promote TP or bring up that Lee Elia (?) guy thats so highly thought of. This team needs a hard slap in the face. They are just not playing good baseball. There is no energy, fire, or passion. Fundamentals are now suffering and the pitching is starting to suffer.
And what do you know…another error.
Sigh. Your 2011 Atlanta Braves.
Seriously, has here been one inning tonight that doesn’t feature some bone-headed play by these clowns?
This is one of those games where the defense is as bad as the offense. One of those kind of nights, I guess, but you aren’t supposed to have these at freakin’ home
I’m done with this team for awhile to boring to watch them right now!!!
May 27th, 20119:30 pm
Horrible defense today, score should be 1-0
The vaunted defense beginning to show it’s true colors…
Linebrink’s fastball is REALLY straight and hittable.
haha .. comical now
worst game ever
May 27th, 20119:31 pm
This is the worst I’ve seen from this team all year.
BOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are a damn joke.
And another error. This is pathetic.
Wow our D ….. not sure how to describe it.
is that Benny Hill I’m hearing??
So much for all that talk about the Braves “good” defense. The errors are starting to come in droves now.
Joe says “heart of the order” coming up for Atlanta. Really? From where I sit this team has no heart.
As i was saying…defense as bad as the hitting…
Pitching not so good, defense terrible. Maybe this is sign the hitting is going to turn around.
@ Cabrafan: They are meaningless because the outcome of the game will not be affected by them. However, I will concede that those hits will boost the stats of the players who hit them and in that regard they are not meaningless.
May 27th, 20119:32 pm
Just to mention some advanced metrics here, the Braves defense has cost the Braves more than 11 runs according to Ultimate Zone Rating.
May 27th, 20119:33 pm
Just before I go…
Worst hitting team in baseball, and now a defensive mess tonight.
“and to think I bought tickets to the Hamels sat and sun hahaha. No way in he11 I’m going to travel from raleigh nc to Atlanta to watch these bum minor league braves. ”
Can You mail you tickets to me Por Favor? I’m 3-1 in the games I go to
Come On Defense Shyt!
Worst Defensive Game of the year, and Prolly the worst overall game played on both sides of the year considering how tired the Reds are
Linebrink is useless. He has no business being in uniform. None, whatsoever. Gearrin is 3 times the pitcher this joke is.
What a nickel and dime game!
braves awful in all aspects tonight
This is a playoff team? Why on paper means little…
May 27th, 20119:34 pm
Now that is outstanding…..lack of concentration and professional fundamentals–really disappointed in this sorry defensive effort tonight–apparently some of them are not excited enough to make this evening a memorable one for the paying fans in attendance.
Heart of the order coming up Joe?
Well they need to show some heart!!!!!!
HaHa just kidding.
Damn Chipper, you’ve walked twice and you swing at the first pitch. Do you have someplace you have to get to in a hurry?
May 27th, 20119:35 pm
really need nothing less than an RBI Hinske
Two more hits and on the board…..
Andruw Jones showed up in L.A. 60 lbs overwieght
Well, at least our typical best offensive innings are coming up.
I just might, T! I’ve had enough stress for one day getting ready for company to come in and getting stuff together for a cookout on Sunday. Don’t need this game to make my freakin’ blood pressure go up any more!
Coach ( 2011 Fredi G. a Go!)
May 27th, 20119:36 pm
Sloppy baseball so far. Not good.
I wonder if there are any stats on how many pitchers with an ERA over 5 the Braves have struggled to score on. It seems like at least one a week
One pitch one out. One pitch one out. One pitch one out.
May 27th, 20119:37 pm
“Heart of the order due up.”
I love how he says it as if it matters.
Wow, You sound as if you are ready to throw something…?
I seriously thought about going to the game tonight, Glad I didn’t
Nice At-Bat Hoss (Sarcasm!)
On And I give a Big Damn You to Wordpress!
Why the hell is Chipper swinging at the first pitch after walking on 3-1 counts in consecutive plate appearances?
May 27th, 20119:38 pm
C’mon Mac, I think everybody in the world knew that ball was gonna fall.
Linenbrink has a 6 outs inning. Time for the bats to wake up.
Don’t miss this opportunity!!!!!!!!!!!!
Braves have been good at fending off the shutouts for the most part, so the bullpen has to hold the Reds at 3 to give the offense a chance.
May 27th, 20119:39 pm
what creative and incredible way will they run themselves out of this inning?
I thought he had that one. Gotta yank those, Dan!
Still, a much-needed RBI. I’ll take it.
McFann :Ô: :Ô:
Bet They Don’t Score Here!
And Bank On It!
well, there’s one. good job Uggs. almost rode it out
dang it Hins .. don’t put more pressure on Uggla!!!
Uggla to the rescue.
May 27th, 20119:40 pm
Hinske can put 2 up right here.
