Ruh-ruh, Jay-Jay smacked his sore shoulder against the fence.
And lest someone take me seriously, I gotta add in a for good measure.
June 29th, 201112:53 am
Hope Linebrink gets the chance for the save tonight.
My Name Is Earl
I’d rather have Bill Buckner play short stop than Yunel.
Its Time for bed!
You guys hold down the fort
Haha, yeah he has the tendency to allow some gap shots.
Awesome catch, Jason!

“Ruh-ruh, Jay-Jay smacked his sore shoulder against the fence.”
Hope he didn’t break everything.

IMO Venters have earned a no bashing status on this blog. He comes and do his job at least 90% of the time.
Anyone know that the NATS 2B Espinoza has 15 HR’s? Wow…
Chris from the Rock
Rafael Ramirez>Alex Gonzalez.
June 29th, 201112:56 am
Didn’t know Wright still pitched
adding a run or two here would be great. The Mariners seems to be in the mood to score some runs.
June 29th, 201112:57 am
I think Uggla getting hit in the head and Heyward hitting his shoulder will get both of them out of their slumps. I mean come on why wouldn’t it!!!
Schafer needs to find Julio Cruz ( I know that is old school) and get a tip on how to bunt for hit. Julio Cruz made a career on bunt hits.
Venters is the best relief ptcher in baseball plain and simple and bashing him is moronic…….and FG better keep Venters in there to pitch to Ichiro

Let’s go jetways get on in front of BMac.

Good a bat from JHey.
Can ‘t type anymore I meant heyward and spell check put in something else.
Were gonna need 5 outfielders tomorrow for D BLOWE
Good AB J Hey
June 29th, 20111:02 am
Linebrink in the 9th?
the fact that it was mccann’s brother and not the braves HITTING COACH that “corrected” his swing is more than disconcerting for me. FIRE LARRY PARRISH
I think I’m on to something here!!!!
Great atbat by Heyward. That was good stuff.
great ab there.
GREAT AB by Heyward
June 29th, 20111:03 am
Heyward needs to quit listening to Fat Joe. Look how far he leans back in that batter’s box now. Great at bat, but when he’s going good he drives one of those pitches he hit foul into the gap.
Excellent at-bat by Heyward.
Great at bat, let’s go BMac.
Heyward running here?
six walks tonight.
June 29th, 20111:04 am
What is McCanns problem?? Nothing more than singles?? What a joke guys……
7 hits in the series for Mac. Have a two days boy!
I can’t remember ever hearing MVP chants at a baseball game, but if anyone deserves them it’s Brian McCann.
Wow. Dude is on fire.
Why can’t that McCann guy come up with a big hit once in a while?
They showed kimbrel warming up not linedrive, another hit by BMac.
June 29th, 20111:05 am
Are you freaking kidding me? Brian McCann, have yourself a season!
McChine strikes again
maybe a wild pitch here?
Chipper coming through here would be awesome.
chipper is struggla-ing tho
Did McFann really go to bed?
seems like jose reyes would solve alot of problems….including having to pitch to him….to bad he would never re-sign
June 29th, 20111:06 am
Slo motion says SAFE!!!
looked safe on the replay
Oh common! He was safe.
That sucks. Ichiro’s arm is otherwordly.
he was safe. tough play… very close
OK, let’s see which Kimbrel shows up.
On deck Freddy said he was safe.
Linebrink for Cy
Were ya telling the Ump he’s called a good game so far Fredi? Didn’t look like you were fighting too hard there …..
June 29th, 20111:07 am
These umps blow!
No drama Kimbrel. Too late for that shi*. Tired
Heyward…YOU DON”T RUN ON ICHIRO!
In light of that situation, that was another out made on the bases by the Braves. That is what 3 tonight?
Why doesnt MLB have instant replay????????? I mean come on
Chipper, if we lose, it’s on you.
I’m just glad Jason got up from that and walked away ostensibly without having injured himself.
he looked safe before the replay. bad call.
He was safe. Boy ichiro sure does have a cannon for an arm. Now let’s get these three outs and win this series.
June 29th, 20111:08 am
that’s Chipper’s first 0-5 game this year
Replay confirms that the umpire missed the call.
I guess that’s the old “The ball beat him so he has to be out” call.
1-2-3. C’mon, Kimbrel.
Kimbrel vs. Ichiro is an intriquing matchup.
I still gotta watch Jeopardy that I DVRed. Lateeeee night. Please finish this Kimbrel!
You know, it would be nice for Fredi to go out there fired up and get ejected sometimes. I’d like to see a tirade like Leyland let out last night.
Kimbrel. Muchos strikes.
Let’s just hope that run doesn’t matter.
Time for expanded instant replay Selig.
June 29th, 20111:09 am
yeah…i could do without the headfirst slides from heyward.
sit down Ichiro
June 29th, 20111:10 am
Kimbrel is not impressed by Ichiro Sisler.
I don’t like Heyward going in home head first. That is a disaster waiting to happen.
June 29th, 20111:11 am
I like the Dominant Kimbrel better, let’s keep this one. He makes the end of the game fun for Braves fans
Sherrill, Proctor, and Linebrink are going to have to be able to pitch at least a complete inning without blowing games.
Venters, O’Flat, and Kimbrel can be relied on everhy game that the Braves have the lead.
The offense is not putting up a lot of runs, so there are going to be a lot of close games.
June 29th, 20111:12 am
hits allowed with 2 strikes are frustrating
Ok. Just regroup and get the other guy out.
far from over
4-6-3 coming right up.
Need a double play here.
Another in a long line of shafts by MLB umpires towards the Braves this season and yet another reason why baseball needs to come out of the Dark Ages and go to replay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One thing for sure. He is throwing strikes.
Boy it looked like shaffer was playing on the warning track.
June 29th, 20111:13 am
Linebrink for Cy
June 29th, 2011
I find that hard to believe.
June 29th, 20111:14 am
0-2 and a 1-2 pitches wow.
