Johnny needs a DP here in the worst way.
Fast, fast guy there….and, you saw it, Venters getting a workout and these lucky bums are in business–my God!
wow and Venters is gonna Blow the Lead here. UNREALLLLL
June 26th, 20116:42 pm
Stupid bunt. Thanks for the out.
Jonny, WHAT is your freakin’ problem kid?
You don’t want to be out there today?
Linebrink for Cy
2/3 of the the O’Ventble trio having tough innings … makes me feel a tad nervous if Kimbrel comes in
June 26th, 20116:43 pm
all or nothing, huh? We win or lose on this decision I guess.
2/3 of the the O’Ventble trio having tough innings
Tonight it’s O’Linebrentble
Muchas gracias, Venable.
The A Bomb
June 26th, 20116:44 pm
Should have let in drop.
Unless the Pads break out big here then it’s O’Linebrentinez
We’re not winning this game folks.
Kick Gonzo in his @ss
Fudgesicles, not his day.
Damn, and double damn
June 26th, 20116:45 pm
spoot! …. JV will get a 8th inning blown save at the very least
the fielding by venters this inning has been horrid
That first pitch was right down the freaking middle.
You’d think these dumb pitchers would learn to let the ball go. Unreal.
I guess they should have A Bomb
I get tired of the Braves pitchers deflecting balls that would have been outs. How many times has that happened this year? 5?
WHY DO THEY ALWAYS DEFLECT THE BALL! LET IT GO!
This is going to triple JV’s ERA
This game just went to hell in a handbasket.
June 26th, 20116:46 pm
This sport is irritating. Padres did nothing to even this up. F#%$^&(*)
You say that every day.
BRAVOOOOOO … Thats all u VENTERS>>> MY GOODNESS…………. BALLGAME.
How quickly things can unravel.
I’ll be a fool, I thought we had the mo…and, we got clowned again by the last placers.
Well, if we end up losing this game, at least I’ll welcome my daughter into the world tonight to keep my mind off the blown save and lack of offense.
Can you imagine if that was Mac at the plate?
I’m seriously disgusted. No baseball for a week.
Wow just awful defines by Venturs this inning…this team is so sorry… One run and then a leadoff walk, bad defense, another catcher who can’t hold on to the ball. Just awful. This is not a playoff team
June 26th, 20116:47 pm
Well, shoot. That certainly was unexpected. A walk and 2 infield hits. It isn’t like Jonny has been getting lit up this inning.
McFann :Ô: :Ô:
Wow…good throw by Schafer, but……
Welcome to the 1+ ERA JV.
This is the kind of crap that happens when your offense sucks and is happy to score one run.
oh well, tomorrow is another day.
I love David Ross but I am glad it was he that dropped that through (instead of McCann who would have been crucified here).
It was a tough play at the plate but one that should have been made. Great throw by Schafer
Well geeze, congrats LAG!
IF VENTERS CAN’T FEILD THE BALL THEN DONT PUT YOUR FUC**ING GLOVE ON THE WAY. VENTERS IS F**KING STUPID. WHY THE HELL TRY AND GET UR GLOVE ON THE BALL:? WHY .
Don’t EVEN go there… (ITS)
Coach (2011 Fredi G. a go!)
Johnny Venters just lost this game all by himself. He had not one but two plays at first base that should have ended this inning without the Padres scoring.
June 26th, 20116:48 pm
That is some b.s., unfortunately it happens.
G.I. Joe, no one in the service cares about Padres uniforms representing the military. Many servicemen do, however, hate people who go out in town impersonating the military.
Venters was due for a bad outing. He’s been used almost every day.
Why couldn’t the TV feed have gone out this half of the inning?
if they can’t come back and win this one, they’ll end the season against the Pads with a 4-5 record
Congrats in advance, LAG!
Can any of our catchers hold onto a throw from the OF?? Ridiculous. Time after time these guys can’t handle throws. And this is what happens when you use Venters every damn day. There was no reason for him to pitch last night. Fredi really is a moron.
VENTERS SHOULD LEARN ABOUT WHERE A BALL MIGHT GO. HE IS STUPID. WHY PUT YOUR GLOVE ON THE WAY IF U CANT FIELD? WHY MAN WHY????
PIECE OF JUNK MAN. NO DAMN BRAINS? F**KING COST US THE GAME.
so frustrated with this team….yes we have a good record but the “talent” level has made this the most frustrating season I can remember.
Well, we deserve to lose this one.
June 26th, 20116:49 pm
Well, y’all, that might be it for today. Not sure we can get 4 in the top of the 9th and hold it there.
Padres are the WORST team in MLB, even worse than Pirates. UNNNN
We never beat bad teams.
Easnter your comments And the Padres pad, double pad and wad a load on the trunk–pissed I am but Venters is just not perfect–sorry
Sad part is they have yet to hit the ball halfway decently this inning.
jeffrey d Why couldn’t the TV feed have gone out this half of the inning?
I know, right?
June 26th, 20116:50 pm
VENTERS CAN’T PLAY DEFENSE. HE IS A PATHETIC FIELDER AND WHY THE HELL DO U WALK DENORFIA TO START THE INNING? ANYWAYS POINT IS THE GUY CAN’T FIELD. HE IS PATHETIC.
Proctor replaces Venters with two out — and that’s something I am certain I’ve not written ever before.
The Padres were due to break through, but they have hit maybe one ball hard in the 8th inning. It’s a different story if Venters retires Maybin on the swinging bunt or if Venters allows the Bartlet groundball to be fielded by Gonzo.
Once again, we lose to the teams we should crush. Pathetic.
A week off for Johnny……Come on Fredi you’re killing him by the way you’re using him.
maybe the mariners will sweep us
HULK ANGRY AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
Venters physically pitched the eighth, but his head was miles away.
June 26th, 20116:51 pm
Go figure EOF and venters look terrible against one of the worst hitting teams in baseball.
WE SHOULD HAVE WON THIS GAME 1-0!!!!! 3HRS WASTED ON THIS?? F*************k
Just an unlucky inning. I guess it happens. Maybe we can hold them and tie it up.
EOF (1.27) has a better ERA than JV now (.55 –> 1.29)
Why in the blue hell can the Braves not beat crap teams?!?! Anyone got an answer?
veer, you’re an idiot.
(and no, he doesn’t merit the traditional AND IDIOT treatment.)
lost a series to another pathetic team.
This is what happens when all you cam do is score one damn run. Pathetic offense leads to an overused bullpen.
June 26th, 20116:52 pm
See what happens when your dumb manager pitchers Venter less than 24 hours before in a 10-1 game and continues to bat the left handed Heyward in the #2 spot–even against a lefty pitcher?
We have, hands down, the dumbest manager in baseball.
This offense, for once, needs to bail out its pitchers. It is only 3 runs right!?
Veer you do realize that 99% of people skim over and ignore any post that is written in all caps don’t you? If you want people to read your post try writing it using the shift button…it’s there for a reason. Just a helpful tip.
I think we need to retire that, BTW
get ready to be Heath Belled
Thanks, jefffrey d and Soph. It’s been a LONG day, but the time draweth nigh.
June 26th, 20116:53 pm
I thought poor starting pitching leads to an overused bullpen?
The problem is OFFENSE.
Our pitchers face way too much pressure day after day because we’re nothing but a home run or nothing team.
Venters blew the game….HA!
LAG – care to let us know the name?
First really bad outing of the year for Jonny. I think we can forgive him one, guys, even if it was his own fault with the walk, bad play on the bunt, and botched play on the grounder headed to short.
June 26th, 20116:54 pm
This thing just blows and I’m out of here for a while–no use posting when all I can do is have repetitive ‘flashbacks’ of all the crummy offensive play in general this season….pissed and I’m gone before I say something i’ll regret. Shaloam and Peace to all!
yeah gawd dang it lets cut that Venters boy he aint wurth nuthin. ever time he plays he gives the dang game away
Venters looks ill. Moving in slow motion.
this umpire blows
June 26th, 20116:55 pm
Veer….Good call, Venters is awful.
Venters does what he always does walk the first hitter. Then he imitates alittle leaguer and lets the sac go for a hit and then he knocks down a double play ball. Fredi, it ain’t happening and we hae a one rn lead. just sit there you diot. Adios to this game.
June 26th, 20116:56 pm
LAG congrats…and jeffrey d he may have to change the name based on whomever helps us pull out a W tonight.
When your pitchers have to limit another team’s offense to 1 run or less most nights to cover up your team’s offensive ineptness sometimes you lose games this way.
After that last camera shot he looks like he’s just received shock therapy.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
