Right down the emiddle….dangit
Offense suddenly looking dead after the big inning. Familiar.
At least we don’t have to listen to Gant or Jordan
Tough loss for Braves.
July 17th, 20114:16 pm
without the HR and errors we are in deep trouble.
Well, that was easy.
BamaDude @ #1CowCollege AL
Bravos still got six outs …i believe …
Just like yesterday the meat of the order put down like a rabid dog.
7th inning behind, bats taking the rest of the day off, ready to catch the Charter to Denver. 4.5 back and only 4 up in the W/C
Some of you bandwagon fans need to get a life and cut the crap talk.
July 17th, 20114:17 pm
Clippard is a tough pitcher
That was sad
Nova Scotia Steve
I’d be surprised if we get another base runner this afternoon. I expect to go quietly into the night.
July 17th, 20114:18 pm
Bring on Vennie-Macc!!!!

Or what? you gonna beat us up with your keyboard?
July 17th, 20114:20 pm
Braves are DONE. Both today and for the season.
B.J UPTON MAY BE ON TRADING BLOCK SOON, GO GET HIM FRANK.
this is very disheartening, loss after loss to muddling teams.
July 17th, 20114:21 pm
If it’s still a one run game in the top of the 9th, I hope Fredi uses Kimbrel instead of Linebrink, Gearrin or Proctor.
Upton? Hell no we have Upton now see Jordan Schafer.
Joeblow, meet be out side gate G..DA
Oh my God. Looked like a 98 mph sinker.
July 17th, 20114:22 pm
Hell Yeah Easy-E
July 17th, 20114:23 pm
Espinoza = NLROY
July 17th, 20114:24 pm
What player would it take 2 get B.J UPTON.
MIKE MINOR AND ANOTHER TOP PROSPECT, AND MCLOUTH AND GONZALEZ.
KimbrelEspinoza = NLROY =D
Nick, interesting. What leads you to believe the Braves are done? Something you see everybody else doesn’t? Let’s talk about this. Or is that not your thing? You don’t want a discussion about this? Come on!
July 17th, 20114:25 pm
Japan ties it
tough loss? Game is NOT over yet
I’m told the wedding dress guy was released from jail at 6 a.m. and has a court date Monday…in case anybody was wondering (smile)
If we tie it up do you keep venters in to pitch the ninth in case of extra innings?
Schafer and Minor would do it….darrell
July 17th, 20114:26 pm
The Braves starters are showing signs of decline and the offense isn’t getting any better. Expect to be out of WC contention in 2 weeks.
Linebrink for Cy
July 17th, 20114:27 pm
that was a nice swing Dan, very nice
The wedding dress guy was funny last night but they had him under control quickly. It must be hard to run in a wedding dress.
Uggla swung at ball four….twice.
Struggla and Gonzo =’s 2 outs!!!
July 17th, 20114:28 pm
back from the airshow and typical horrible use of the Pen again is gonna cost them. the same thing happened against the orioles. baltimore had a 3 run lead we take the lead and the next inning mr manager puts in proctor and walaa the orioles take the lead. and today. he leaves in sherrill to pitch to the bottom and espinosa comes up and one pitch gives them the lead back. sometimes u need to bring in your best pitchers earlier.. but no freddie cant do that.. once burnett had the lead back i said they arent scoring again. and here we are 5 outs away from yet another series loss to the average nationals. . Uggla swings at 2 balls not even close to being strikes . way to go Dan..
Bummer. Thought Uggs was gonna get on base there.
Gonzalez up, 2 outs.
BJ Upton is beyond terrible. He’s no better than Jordan Schafer. Justin Upton, on the other hand, would be nice. Not gonna happen though.
Bravos just need to send D-Lowe somewhere and get some payroll flexibility. Get Bourn, Pence, Cuddyer, or whoever… J-Hey, McLouth, and Jordan aren’t cutting it in the outfield. If we do make the playoffs, can you imagine how terrible these guys are gonna look against the Giants or Phillies pitching staff?
July 17th, 20114:29 pm
Swing the bat, please.
so are we all now ready to trade Jair afterall??
Can the wedding dress guy hit left handed pitching????
could have got on if he had not swung at that tree topper
We just have too many automatic outs right now, IMO.
Clippard looks like a lesbian.
“I’m told the wedding dress guy was released from jail at 6 a.m. and has a court date Monday…in case anybody was wondering (smile)”
Who bailed him out? Derek Lowe? (joking)
July 17th, 20114:30 pm
clippard will have a 1-2-3 inning once again..
Alex goes 0-4
Carroll – aren’t you getting married soon?? Do you need a used only once wedding gown??
Billy, you don’t have enough wheaties in your mama’s cupboard.
Gozo/McClouth….that’s our hope
July 17th, 2011
Upton? Hell no we have Upton now see Jordan Schafer.
Upton avg 245 15hrs and 45+rbi’s…yea a low average but very productive. Yes he is like Jordan, good speed good defense and young. BTW Jordan may not be the best but he is giving a 100%. He hustle and plays excellent D. I am not saying Jordan is the answer he isn’t but maybe he isn’t the problem because since Mclouth went out and Jordan started the team playing way over 500
July 17th, 20114:31 pm
Alex Gonzalez is beyond terrible. We’re getting NOTHING out of him and Nate.
Both K’s were swinging… at balls.
Is anyone else aware that BJ Upton is not good? Geez.
JOE BRAVES The braves going after upton would be perfect put him in LF AND BATTING SECOND AND PLUS HE HAVE POWER WITH A CAREER OBP OF .350 WITH 40 STEALS A YEAR.
This guy is a beast and still young.
Steve from OH
I don’t believe it.
Oh cool. Didn’t expect that
Holy smokes mc Louth with the long ball.
Hugo Z Hackenbush
Now that’s funny. Nate!
Dang, Nate!!!! Wow!!! Lucky Charms from the Leprechaun!!!!
WOW……..I’m eating some CROW…for now, at least
July 17th, 20114:32 pm
Exit Nick. Tough day for Nick.
Nate Dawg comes thru !!!!!!!!!!!!!
GO Bravos !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now say the damn is is over ..quiter
well I’ll just be dadgummed…. Natester KUNGPOW!
wow nate wow…the jinx works again..
Trade that bum Nate before he kills us again…..ohhh nevermind.
Good job Mcnate.
boy if ugga and gonzo had been patient
Was that a replay from last year????
Or was McLouth wearing a Pirates jersey??? I do not believe it either.
Tyler Clippard is no Johnny Venters.
wow a squirrel finds a nut!!!
Braves lose 9-8
Nick said we were done scoring today. You, sir, fail again.
Hinske Da Man
Sherrill pitched with a 1 run lead over O’ Flaherty, and Venters for what reason? This loss is squarely on the fat broad shoulders of Sherrill for being the useless pitcher that he is, and also Fredi Gonzalez for putting in a weak pitcher with such a small lead instead of the guys that have shut down hitters all year long.
July 17th, 20114:33 pm
Gonzo’s OBP now .260. Now, I’m no big fan of Schafer, but for all of you ripping Schafer every chance you get on here, in what way is Alex superior to him?
Bring back venters if it’s still tied up
Haha…you guys kill me.
July 17th, 20114:34 pm
Release Hinske. His career is over.
first homer for mcLouth since may 4 vs. Greinke
Honeymoon is over.
lets sit the Nats down 1-2-3 in the top of the 9th and have Brooks walk it off in the bottom half … that’d work
that damn worthless McLouth, I though we got rid of that bum…
Tomahawkin, why do you say boom shot lock boom?
We Better win this Game!
July 17th, 20114:35 pm
I was just looking over the stats of the game thinking that Schafer should really play over Nate when Chipper comes back and then…………….
How did Nate hit a home run? I didn’t think they allowed batting tees in regulation play.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
