Nate went 2 for 5 Friday with a rbi and a bomb today. sure like him in that 7th hole he gets a few more pitches and has some power.

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.
Sherrill has been very good all year,and it was the 6th inning….oventrell pitch 7 ,8,and 9 .

“Who bailed him out? Derek Lowe?”
How is that funny?
in what way is Alex superior to him? Steve
relative to position played???

PLEEEEEEEEZ hold ‘em here!!!

Come On Kimmie!!!
My man, Nate! Steve, you are correct in that they give you about the same. But, we can’t have both of them in the lineup and neither one of them should sniff the top 6 in the order. Either one would be okay if we had a better option at the other spot. I don’t think the Braves should stick with both of them if they can find a better alternative. Can’t have a guy with a .293 OPS and .610 OPS leading off!
Steve from OH
nolie–that’s about it, really. Throw that out, and they’re both just a couple of guys who can’t hit and both play D very well. Schafer runs much better. Just posing a rhetorical question for the Schafer haters.
And yes, once a prospect hugger, always a prospect hugger.

Boy George hasn’t pitched in a lot of key situations though.
that’s ONE !!
“Tomahawkin, why do you say boom shot lock boom?”
Because It sounds Cool, F@rt-knocker! WOOOOOOOOOOOO, Rock On!!! No offense!
Tomahawkin, you didn’t answer my question
Oops, .293 OBP.
“Roger over and out”
That’s our announcer, fans. Gimmie a break. STUPID!
Can’t have a guy with a .293 OPS and .610 OPS leading off!
Also a very valid point.
July 17th, 20114:39 pm
Teen with a walk-off of some sort?
I thought fredi would pitch venters one more inning.
what happened to our vaunted pitching the last two games against one of the worse offenses in NL baseball?
Hugo Z Hackenbush
Shaun should love this…Fredi brings in the best pitcher remaining!
Keylargo…….yea….Clippard really is lacking………..WHIP is 0.84 and era is 1.72. Not too bad,eh?
July 17th, 20114:40 pm
Gotcha, thought you were quoting that song or something and was wondering why you were saying it like that.
Kimbrel just told Espinosa who is the ROY. Go sit down HO!!!
Kimmie Is Clowning!!!
DFA Nick. His chronic halitosis is stinking up the blog
The wedding dress guy a night in Fulton Co. jail…I’d rather go back to Viet Nam than spend a night in FCJ..that place is hell. I work there one time, enough said.
July 17th, 20114:41 pm
How about we get Clippard?
July 17th, 20114:42 pm
noleee – I think the 2nd half will be a complete reverse – lots of runs scored and given up…
Wouldn’t have fooled with Z either
I’m sure the wedding dress guy was a big hit with the other inmates.
Boy George hasn’t pitched in a lot of key situations though. Jason
Boy George?? I thought he was a singer
I got a bad feeling about this game. Hope I’m wrong.
Come on Craig let’s get this guy don’t let this walk kill us.
July 17th, 20114:43 pm
this guy Morse scares me
I actually thought they might have pitched Eric O in the 6th and Jonny 2 innings. Not saying they should have, but with Jonny’s lack of work lately.
hey Nova Scotia Steve
How about you head home north of the border along with 3/4 of the juvenile game is over ten year olds on this blog?
Come on Man….Damn. Can anything be easy in this game. What the Hell?
that walk by Zimmerman was first allowed by Kimbrel since 6/18. he’s been 11 appearances without one
Boy George Sherril.
July 17th, 20114:44 pm
Always not fun watching a closer in a non-save situation.
Proctor time after this inning… Oh my someone please relieve Fredi of his useless crutch!
July 17th, 20114:45 pm
boy, if the braves could figure out how to hit AND pitch in the same ball game, they’d be on to something
Hell Yeah Kimmie!
Lets Get a Walk-off Win!
As Joe said with Colorado ahead they want to save as many innings as possible for the pen.trying to stick to one inning per arm….
end this NOW Bravos !!!!!!!!!!
Lets win this right now!
We better win it here or we have to go to the second string bullpen.
yeah Jason, just clownin’
July 17th, 20114:46 pm
Nobody time after this inning. We win it. Right here.
let’s go win this beeeeyotch!!
July 17th, 20114:47 pm
I hope so Jason, or else this could get ugly Linebrink, Gearrin, Proctor.
Coach (2011 Fredi G.a Go!)
Here comes the walk off win!
July 17th, 20114:48 pm
Come On Connie!!!!
“I’m sure the wedding dress guy was a big hit with the other inmates.”
K or Home run for COnrad….but which one will it be???
Steve from OH – I can tell you one difference. Schafer has 1 HR is 200 PA and Alex Gonzales has 31 HR’s in the last two years. You adjust it any way you’d like, but like yesterday, a 2 run dinger comes as a pleasant surprise every now and then.
Conrad over Ross? I understand the lefty/righty concept but please….
July 17th, 20114:49 pm
You win when the Phils win, right?
Well then, it’s pre-ordained…
You adjust it any way you’d like, but like yesterday, a 2 run dinger comes as a pleasant surprise every now and then.
I think the last 6 words sum it up nicely…
Oh Lordy…Brooks Conrad time
July 17th, 20114:50 pm
Yesss!!! We Will Win This, Bank on it!!!
No bunting,, for Heavens sakes no bunting.
Let’s end it, Marteeen!!!
will wonders never cease
July 17th, 20114:51 pm
Come On Martini
Do it for Soph!
nice Jordan !! ….
winning run @ 2nd ..
how can we possibly win if we have to pitch Proctor or Linebrink?
Marteen walk off right here.
July 17th, 20114:52 pm
Hello Every one! Goal USA 2-1………………….
USA 2-1 in extra time !!!!!!!!!!
What a great umpire, blind and dumb.
July 17th, 20114:53 pm
Good eye Martini!
Lowe is in the locker room packing his gear
July 17th, 20114:54 pm
Marteen make him pay!
I be damned
damn ! …
This is the dumbest team in MLB history……NO REASON TO RUN THERE!!!!

July 17th, 20114:56 pm
Curse of The Nats
Conrad has the IQ of a baboon. You can score from second on a hit..idiot
WTF is Brooks doing
July 17th, 20114:57 pm
