Jason Heyward is a useless f@@k – give me Uggla every day!!!
Now let’s hold this two-run lead without any funny business by the relief corps.
Nice job by the pitcher for covering first?
Really? That’s your call, Chip Caray?
June 29th, 201112:17 am
Chipper’s hurt…..or something. Hasn’t been “Chipper” in a while now.
I really love the fact that we have McCann on our team.
Linebrink for Cy
IMO Mac defines MVP right now … where would the Braves be without him right now
Sherrill to pitch 7th for Braves
JC from DR! (You gotta tip your cap to ____)
Heyward Ks with bases loaded… Shocker.
Chipper hits a tapper to second with runners on 2nd and 3rd… Surprise.
Thank God for Brian McCann.
Chipper looks like dog sh**.
Ya know Venters is coming in here. Hopefully he’s sharp. No drama.
Me being Manager, Mclouth sits and platoons, Shafer my starter. J-hay needs to be way lower in the batting order and needs some instruction. Cant wait for prado to get back…he will be great a 2 with shafer at 1
June 29th, 201112:18 am
The Sheriff is In
Watch him pick tonight to pitch like crap! he’s due
314 AVG 14 HR 46 RBI’s 920 OPS as a catcher. Ranks 9th in the league in OPS.
I know Reyes and Kemp are having great seasons, but they’re not going to the playoffs and McCann is doing it as a catcher. Deserves some consideration

Heyward will be fine guys. He’s still the 7th or 8th youngest guy in the league. He’s going to be a star for a long time.
Heyward, Jones and Gonzalez need to be traded for a bat!!!!!!!!!
June 29th, 2011
I wanna see Venters go up against Ichiro
and i want to see you leave like you said you would after trailing 1-0 !
Let’s proclaim McCann as our National Treasure. I don’t want him blocking the plate or near the plate when a runner goes to score. Also wrapped him in silk and carry him around when he is not playing.
Uggla has trouble with that running throw to his sidem
Oh well, we looked good for a half-inning anyway.
Tough play for Uggla. Would have been nice to have that out.
June 29th, 201112:20 am
Ichiro is awesome!! Thats why U like Shafer, not they they are the same, but the speed is similar
Here we go!
Ichiro will be running here! Bank on It!
Boy ichiro sure is fast.
I just hate those little ground balls infield singles
Ichiro isn’t anything if he’s not consistent…
June 29th, 201112:21 am
No one is anything if they arent consistent…..
Seems like games where the Braves come back late are difficult to nail down for the relievers
Tomas- I think your 12:18 has some merit. That said I think him being a catcher will cost him down the road. It’s just such a demanding position that something has to give at some point and it’s usually the offensive output.
June 29th, 201112:22 am
No one is anything if they arent consistent…
Of course they are. They are inconsistent.
Can we take the names of those that left before the rally.Maybe they have been JINXING the mighy Braves Offense.LOL
Let’s get some outs here sherill.
If we win this game we will be tied for second in all of baseball for 2nd most wins behind the Phils.
June 29th, 201112:23 am
Tomahawk, thats because it surprises the hell out of them. They figure its over and shut it down, then somehow have to get ready to go!
Keep in mind this is the “old” Ichiro. In his day….wow. Certainly deserves real HOF consideration even in his North American shortened career.
The bullpen has no luck at all. Infield hit and a bloop.
Why does Chip Caray have to be so annoying?
rob from sc
Can McCann, his dad, or his brother please teach Heyward how to hit
June 29th, 201112:24 am
These Damn Mariners will not lay down! GRRRRR
I want to go to bed soon!
Anders- I think we all know the toll it does to a catcher but it sounds like he truly loves the position….if he was our first baseman from day one…that would be great…..but he’s our catcher and he loves it..lets embrace the fact that he might be the best catcher of the modern era
“Certainly deserves real HOF consideration even in his North American shortened career.”
Sheriff needs to start laying down the law with these guys!
@Nova Scotia Steve It took the opposing pitcher to screw up for us to be somewhat potent that inning–3 walks=trouble as you know. The Braves line-up offensively outside of the obvious few we all know is really scary.
Mariners want this.
Another bloop single. I’m getting tired of getting beat by infield hits and bloop singles.
If we win this game we will be tied for second in all of baseball for 2nd most wins behind the Phils.(Jrob)
And only 4 ahead of the lowly Mets in the all important loss column. If you win that is.
June 29th, 201112:25 am
@ Mitchell Ichrio led off the inning I wanted Venters to face him
Boy they get some cheap hits of sherrill. Our 2nd string bullpen scares the hell out of me.
Head’s up play!!!!
Nova Scotia Steve
Chipper will probably hit the DL or something once Prado gets back. Or limp into the All-Star Break.
Mitchell Cause he’s my son
Let’s resume the chant: MVP! MVP!
Sherrill is useless
June 29th, 201112:26 am
Might be time to get old Sherrill out of there if he walks this guy.
but he’s our catcher and he loves it..lets embrace the fact that he might be the best catcher of the modern era (Skip Caray)
Whoah there. What do you consider the “modern era”? Since fantasy baseball was invented?
You the man McCann.
Best throw of the year for Bmac -M V P
his best throw of the season.
Get The Sheriff Out NOW!!!
He is Shooting Blanks with the BS
June 29th, 201112:27 am
McCann – worth all 25 of the all-star votes I made on his behalf.
Put O’Flaherty on the DL
Gun-em down B MC annon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ATTACK HIS ASS SHERRILL!
I never thought i would say this but… Put Linebrink in…
Sheriff, the strikezone it’s invisible but there .. find it!
June 29th, 201112:28 am
Walk to get to Ackley. NOT GOOD
Again, this is where we all say a big thanks to Chipper for putting such a quick end to a rally that could have put it out of reach.
God forbid he would try to take a pitch. Even Dan Uggla walked, or did I hallucinate that?
Bring in Venters.
Sherrill is horrible
My Name Is Earl
His best throw ever!
Again disaster written all over it after that walk.
Why Sherill still in this game? I know that FG want to give him a chance to work out of trouble but now is 1 run game.
Drama drama. MERCY ME!
Anders- you should know what I am talking about…..no one considers “fantasy baseball” when considering hall of fame catchers.
Damn’t Mac, why can’t you pick someone off there………
Time to pull him, Fredi.
ballgame, it felt good for a little while.
June 29th, 201112:29 am
When will they learn walking is never a good idea????????????????
I am sick of Sherril and sick of Lindbrink…why are they still on the team
Great throw by BMac but Uggla was down on the bag to take it. If he’d been out in front of the bag and doing that catch and swipe at the runner BS, the runner would have been safe.
Now he takes him out.
June 29th, 201112:30 am
2011 Braves are the most frustrating winning team i can ever remember.
“And only 4 ahead of the lowly Mets in the all important loss column. If you win that is”
I appreciate that your a Mets fan but come on. You don’t really believe they’re going anywhere this season do you?
As usual FG let’s him face one hitter to many. He is suppose to be the lefty specialist and alll the. Hits came from lefties.
It continues to amaze me that people will always find something to bitch about…
WHY THE HELL IS SHERRIL STILL ON THIS TEAM???? JESUS HE SUCKS
Why would you mess with Smoak with a 3-1 count?? That walk is not bad, especially to get to lefty lefty.
June 29th, 201112:31 am
Nothing is ever easy
Skip- That was a point of reference. Again- what do you consider the “modern Game” that McCann is the all time catcher in?
Oh great from Sherill to Proctor. From the pan to the fire. Please make me eat my words.
I never thought i would say this but… Put Linebrink in…
Literally laughed out loud when I read this….
June 29th, 201112:32 am
The 7th inning grease fire…Sherill and Proctor with Linebrink warming up – LOL
Oh and Anders, modern means pertaining to the present time……
I don’t trust the Proctologist here!
N Nine I disagree, at least we are winning this year. The last few years were wayyyyyyyy worse.
Nothing is ever easy.
June 29th, 201112:33 am
Right down the middle – good lord.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
