Can we trade MLB Network Chip Caray for Smoltz? Watching Sox & Phils and John is rather enjoyable to listen to.

Oh boy, Lee is no-hitting the Red Sox. Can’t anybody stop this juggernaut?
June 28th, 20118:35 pm
Tom, I read the comments, since Captain said something about the Holocaust.
June 28th, 20118:36 pm
90 win pace at halfway point guaranteed! 92 pace possible. in play tonite. go bravos! kick this rook’s tush! and by kick the rook’s tush, i mean score 2 runs. monumental task for these sorry parrishioners
Bat, do you think George may be Joe Tess?
George is LTBF
June 28th, 20118:37 pm
Parrish is on the new “on the job training” program the Braves have started. Really, if they couldn’t find a whatta you call it , established hitting caoch, than why even replace TP?
Course this wouldn’t even be thought of if the guys weren’t at the bottom of the league in certain offensive spots.
June 28th, 20118:40 pm
You know, TP’s still on the team…it’s not like he’s barred from talking to the hitters. I’m sure he’s giving pointers too, but I really think too much emphasis is placed on hitting coaches.
Bat – ha! Nice.
And as I say that, the Red Sux get a hit.
June 28th, 20118:41 pm
Like jeffrey said, George is LTBF. I don’t know if he is Joe Tess, too. Though I doubt it, since he changed his name because of the name stealer.
No, buddy, that was Ernie Hudson.
June 28th, 20118:42 pm
@Alex…… How do you spell Steroids in Spanish……. Jose Canseco? Rafeal Palmeriro? Sammy Sosa?and of course Rafeal Belliard lol Belliard was jacked he could bench 95 lbs and could break a no. 2 pencil
June 28th, 20118:43 pm
francoeur is a future hitting coach!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Never thought I’d say it but goooooo Sox!!!!!!!!
June 28th, 20118:45 pm
they just praised bill conlin on mlb game. that fat cuss should never have a nice word said about him.
June 28th, 20118:46 pm
And Ernie apologized, rightfully so, but still he did. Gotta give him credit for that.
June 28th, 20118:47 pm
June 28th, 20118:48 pm
ichiro is slower in the field. less range. should call him suzuki these days. ichiro is no longer.
Bruce almighty that Danny!
June 28th, 20118:49 pm
Gimmie a B! Gimmie a R! Gimmie a A,V,E,S! GOOOOOOOOOO BRAVES! WOOHOO! Oh. My. Gosh! Danny looks soooooo like a gym rat -which I love by the way- in those tight shirts and pants! Okay, I’m sweating now…. Just, GO BRAVES!!
June 28th, 20118:51 pm
Bat, did Jeffrey say that? I missed his post then.
never trust an apologetic man. trust only men who make no apologies. men should never apologize unless it is not meant. apologies should be a trick of appeasement, not an act of contrition.
June 28th, 20118:52 pm
I think nolee is just a big ol hunk behind that computer! You’re not fooling me with your self discriminating remarks you’ve made before nolee. I can sense you’re a hunk!
June 28th, 20118:55 pm
You’re absolutely right, Bat.
never respect one who rolls his eyes at you. only trust the one who looks you in the eye
“never trust an apologetic man”
OH, tell me about it. What does a boy have to do to find a good man anymore??
June 28th, 20118:56 pm
nolie is not a hunk. nolie is a pretty boy, a fly guy.
T for Texas

How does one get a job writing fortune cookies? How do you like it?
Somebody needs to derail this train of thought.
June 28th, 20118:58 pm
sabermalicious- your are sooooo right, AGAIN. Hate the rolley eyes thing too! You seem soooo smart. Hmmmmmmmmm
Please – No Nate – at the top or the bottom of the order.
Dead pull hitter on that rare occassion when he does hit it. He has been that way since he got here and he is not going to change.
He’ll get two or 3 hits in one game every now and then when we are up by 5 or more runs just to keep all those ofer nights from showing up so badly!
June 28th, 20119:00 pm
go Red Sox
These Bravos may yet unrail your juggernought
I would like a no-Nate offense, but it isn’t happening anytime soon.
June 28th, 20119:02 pm
never respect one who rolls his eyes at you. only trust the one who looks you in the eye
Would you respect me if I poked you in the eye? Not much interested in your trust, to be honest.
we got a batting order yet?
June 28th, 20119:03 pm
Hey everyone…..hopefully the braves have a good game tonight….these west coast games are on wayyy to late though
June 28th, 20119:04 pm
Tell me about it, katherine. I’ve been sleeping in till 10 for the past few days. Not conducive to getting much done around here.
Nate simply needs a good disciplining is all. Stop pulling Nate and “go the other way”. You’ll be a lot more free!
June 28th, 20119:05 pm
Went with family to Braves/Mariner game last night. What a blast.
1. My Purple Heart son came from his base for the game and caught a ball from McCann in batting practice.
2. Tons of people in Braves gear.
3. McLouth catch was awesome – it was right in front of us.
4. Freeman hitting bombs in batting practice – not surprised he hit one.
5. Heyward good to kids during batting practice.
6. During the game, lots of talk from Mariner faithful on “Who is this Beachy? where did you find him? He’s awful good.”
7.The McLouth near home run was 5 feet in front of us.
8.Kimbrel was filthy. Mariner fans really started streaming out after his first strikeout.
9. McCann game home run came right to us. We ended up on ESPN sportcenter
(my son is wearing the bright green sweatshirt)
10. Chone Figgins was booed from the time they announced the lineup….
But just about the coolest part was all us NW Braves fans greeting each other, happy to see the Braves in person. You saw Braves gear all day on the waterfront, the market. People drove over from Montana.
this page sure is loading slow blah
I know you are right Hugo. But it sucks and part of me just can’t accept it.
The Phillies, Yankees…would never have those type guys in the lineup and thats why I’m jeolous I guess!
Just 2 hitters(one with speed). Thats all we need. Can’t all those front office people figure a way to make that happen. OR AT LEAST TRY!!!!
June 28th, 20119:06 pm
The Mets had two grand slams in their game tonight. Wow.
never trust a man who pokes you in the eye. only the man who punches you in the eye. but only if you punched him first. never punch girls and never punch first.
that is so cool bravesac! I noticed some fans doing the chop on tv last night too
June 28th, 20119:07 pm
Dude, it happened like 4 posts above Bat’s
June 28th, 20119:09 pm
Sounds awesome BravesAC. Glad you and your family enjoyed yourselves.
Nate had two hits the other day to left field..short memories here
and he nearly hit a homer, any other park it was gone
June 28th, 20119:10 pm
Would you respect me if I poked you in the eye? Not much interested in your trust, to be honest. — Brava
June 28th, 20119:11 pm
Ok dont punch first???????? Damn you do that where im from you would be layed out. Hit first ask questions later.
groundfog – A blind hog finds an acorn every now and then. I he hits a ball on the left field side of
June 28th, 20119:12 pm
Jeffrey, doesn’t mean I read it.
Anyone watching UF and South Carolina playing on ESPN
June 28th, 20119:14 pm
groundfog – If he hits a ball(notice I’m not saying gets a hit)just hits the ball on the left field side of 2B tonight I will stop bashing his playing ability and will just pick on the fact that he spends wayyyyyto much time on his hair!
lol I’m watching hidalgo
June 28th, 20119:15 pm
a man only gets laid out if he has glass jaw. trust your jaw and your fists of fury. preemption is the act of a coward. retaliation takes bravery and conviction.
June 28th, 20119:18 pm
saberDelicious- where do you come up with this stuff?? So hot!
June 28th, 20119:20 pm
sabermalicious sounds like Kawakami’s interpreter.
I miss that guy. (The interpreter, not KK.)
Anyone see the trailer for Moneyball, the Brad Pitt movie about Billy Beane and the Oakland A’s?
When I read about it in the trades, I scoffed.
But ill be damned if the preview didn’t just give me chills.
June 28th, 20119:21 pm
I’m telling you!!
sabermalicious, you need to put out a calendar or something. Call it “Men of Rage” or something!
June 28th, 20119:22 pm
pre-what ? saber, may be your problem
I saw your post at 4:25 about where you live. We go down to Top Sail state park that must be near you and camp for a week in the spring. Very nice place,several miles of beach and not crowded.
June 28th, 20119:23 pm
It must have been 11 years ago, the guy I was coaching Little League with suggested we take our team to the McCann’s hitting academy. I didn’t know such a thing existed, thinking we were way ahead of what I grew up with as we had batting cages at our field. Late in the session, the other coach comes over and points out this cherub faced,chubby kid and says it’s the owner’s son and that he’s a really good hitter. With one look, I’m thinking that must mean Div 3 prospect, free agent signing, if he’s lucky. If you had told me that that player would become a perrinial All-Star and Iconic Brave, then I would probably have bet my house against it. In 40 plus years, there’s no other home grown talent who comes close. I should have gotten his autograph while I had the chance.
June 28th, 20119:25 pm
EWWW! I hate raging men! saber-Delicious is just simply fab though!
June 28th, 20119:27 pm
Moneyball?? Haven’t seen the prevs, but love the name
June 28th, 20119:28 pm
Evening, fans. Guess I’m gonna be watching a little bit of it on gameday. Got a load of clothes I have to take out of the dryer before I can go to bed tonight. GO BRAVES!!!!!
June 28th, 20119:31 pm
bravesgrl4life- YUCK! Like I seriously loath laundry! Just skip the chores and watch these boys play ball! You deserve it girl!
June 28th, 20119:35 pm
Anyone know if the game is going to really be on MLB Network tonight?
Braves have it listed on their website but MLB Network does not have it listed on theirs.
June 28th, 20119:36 pm

June 28th, 20119:41 pm
As the old saying goes ” Keep doing what you have always done and you’ll keep getting those same sorry results”.
I’d rather see David Ross play CF and hit 3 to 4 times a night than to keep putting MacOut out there!
June 28th, 20119:42 pm
@Bravesfan mclouth is one of the braves best player.
June 28th, 20119:44 pm
You gotta be nuts!!
McFann :Ô: :Ô:
June 28th, 20119:47 pm
BravesAC – glad you had fun at the game yesterday – sounded awesome.
He has 1 of the best averages on the team and he doesn’t pull everything. He’s hit a few doubles to left center.
Im sorry, yall might say im over reacting, but I am starting to worry about Heyward…..
June 28th, 20119:49 pm
They are ready to hand the Cy Award to Cliff Lee.
June 28th, 20119:51 pm
I am all for getting rid of my son….he is so over rated
June 28th, 20119:52 pm
Lee is looking good….The Phils front three are pretty good.
June 28th, 20119:53 pm
Hanson looks less beardy.
Hanson looks like a homeless dude

The pundits, If you didn’t know.
June 28th, 20119:55 pm
COULD MCCANN’S brother please call uggla, heyward. gonzo????????????????????????
June 28th, 20119:59 pm
@Noleee….and the general blog census: I do not recall much about last night and geting bent way too far out of shape over something innocent and seemingly made in spirit of fun by Noleee. Sometime late this afternoon when I reread the initial commentary….well, as a result, I am a big enough person to apologize sincerely to Noleee and anyother individuals affected by my antagonism and miffed commentary–it won’t happen again, I can assure you all. At a later date I will explain to anyone what happened to me last night–and the subsequent effect that had on my is well chronicled now and regretfully evident. Again, I was in error–I am sorry, please forgive me somehow. And Go Bravos.

June 28th, 2011
Very nice comment, happy to hear you and your family had such a good time.
June 28th, 201110:01 pm
WHY AM I GETTING THE END OF THE METS GAME ON THE CHANNEL THAT IS SUPPOSED TO BE SHOWING THE BRAVES????? I HATE YOU TIME WARNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Baller770 – He is hitting .238 with 11 dbls in 185 ABs this year.
He is awful!!!!
I’ll tell you like I did someone earlier that was taking up for his sorry play. If he’ll just hit a ball on the left side of the diamond tonight I’ll stop bashing his sorry play and just pick on the fact that he spends way to much time on his “Golden Locks”.
June 28th, 201110:02 pm
the mudderland seek approval. will daddy hug the mudderland?
June 28th, 201110:03 pm
Yep Top Sail is very close by. Great place, as you say, glad to hear you enjoy it.
Mets game still going on. Booooooooo.
June 28th, 201110:04 pm
cabravesfan–That same type thing, (one broadcast running into next on same ch.) caused my retired, very mellow father to cancel his T/W cable package, and have DitecTV installed the next day. He was annnnngry.
