Braves are in talks with Padres to acquire Luke Gregorson RHP to help out the bullpen.
sweet georgia peach
well here it is douche:
Well played, sir.
McFann O O Get Well Soon, BMac!!!

That little girl is adorable…kids with cancer just tear my heart out…
While Quentin is a solid bat, but he’s apparently a lousy defensive outfielder….
I think I’d rather have Pence than Q too
Who would you take Pence or Quieten if that what its down to .
great cause that McCann champions. For everyone intersted in getting involved in the fight against childhood cancer I encourage people to look up Reelin’ for Research. Last year they raised >$100,000. They hold a deep sea fishing tournament the 1st weekend of May in Morehead City

The Braves are “desperate” for an outfield bat, but Quentin may cost multiple top prospects, according to Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com.
NL East…How is that different from Heyward now?
The A Bomb
July 28th, 20117:13 pm
When was the last time in MLB history there were 2B batting CLEANUP for both teams?
Braves can no longer use Schafer as a chip since he is DL’d. He would be a piece that would likely be in a deal for Pence or Quentin
maybe back when sandberg played is a guess
sweet georgia peach-
Well I was in the submarine force and we had something called Hate Week towards the end of a patrol. I was not a seal and have never heard of Hell week. My mistake. I don’t appreciate the juvenile name calling though.
So, once we add yet another low average, power hitter & bench Heyward…how does that solve McLouth’s inability to get on base or Gonzalez’s inability to hit air with runners in scoring position or our middle relief disaster? Let me guess, benching Heyward solves all of that.
July 28th, 20117:14 pm
Pence is a much better all-around player. likely more costly though I’d guess
Phillies will get Pence.Braves will get Ludbag or Willingcrap.The more things change the more they stay the same.The Braves will continue to be the Phillies girlfriend. Hey MR FRISKY more like we will continue to be their Play toy in JAIL lol Philles our braves BUBBA! haha
Go BRAVES! Send J HEY to Center HE can do it!
I would be desperate for an OF bat too if I was planning on play Jordan Schafer every day.
If McCutchen is such a fan…. he should be allow to just come over and be on the team.
July 28th, 20117:15 pm
I like Quentin simply because it will A. Force Philly to grab Pence,because they always have to outdo us. and B. Force Philly to pay waaaaay too much for Pence. I’d rather have Pence but I don’t see it happening.
July 28th, 20117:16 pm
how does that solve McLouth’s inability to get on base
sigh.please pick something realistic to whine about
If the gNats consider themselves out of the race, maybe the Braves can get Ankiel.
a month ago it seems when pedroia and cano hit cleanuo in a game, but i was like you and thought it had to be a long time
I really hate it when bloops fall in and goodness the bad luck for Derek Lowe starts.
Nothing as been reported for a while…
Something is going to happen soon…
The weather is changing in Atl…
July 28th, 20117:17 pm
thx sweet ga peach…. thought it would have been a lot longer
Getting on base is one of the few things that Mclouth can still do.
can we trade lowe for bard penny, i know they both sux but that a way wouldnt have to keep watching lowe pitch….GOOD GRIEF
July 28th, 20117:18 pm
Hopefully nothing comes of this 2 out nobody on rally the Pirates have going. haha.
This first inning shows why you need to keep the top of the order off base. otherwise those two singles would of meant trouble.
@Theo: I hear you on that, but an “overpaid” Pence trumps anything we’ve got or could get…and it likely gets the Phillies & their “overpaid” Pence to the World Series.
July 28th, 20117:19 pm
pence could play through 2013 makes him very valuable guys
Boy Yunel is raking this year with the blue jays.
July 28th, 20117:20 pm
makes me sad too
sweet georgia peach
July 28th, 2011

Not when he is going to cost a fortune. The more overpaid someone is then the worse it is to have then signed through more years.
the Blue Jays are like the Island of Misfit Toys- Escobar, Rasmus
finally derek he should ready to implode by the 6th AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! come on bravos score and score alot!!!!!!!!!!!!
Snotboogie, July 28th, 2011, 7:17 pm … “Getting on base is one of the few things that Mclouth can still do.”
C’mon! He can keep the runner from taking the extra base hit 20+ home runs steal you a few bases cover a lot of ground out there in CF.
Sigh. Never mind.
Heck yeah, another night where Braves pitchers hold the opposition scoreless in the first inning.
July 28th, 20117:21 pm
I have a feelin’ the offense wakes up tonight.
Good…he’ll be at 100 pitches in 5 so he won’t fool Fredi into thinking he’s in cruise control.
Good job D-Lowe, let’s get him a lead.
depends on his numbers blankster
July 28th, 20117:22 pm
Phils reported interested in Adams. That would hurt IMO
No runs allowed, good start
Pence means more to the ‘Stros than Quentin does to the Pale Hose. I’d rather give up less to get a better power bat.
Also, let’s trade Lowe during before the top of the second. His stock has never been higher.
July 28th, 20117:23 pm
Phillies just stranded a runner on third with 1 out vs the freak. So its not just us!
Braves just made a deal Sending Jaye Chapman, and 2 PTBNL to San Diego for Luke Gregorson and Jason Bartlett.
Ugh. That’s what happens when you edit without editing.
July 28th, 20117:24 pm
Nate looks very good at the plate right now
There goes the perfect game.
Nova Scotia Steve
Looks like Quentin to Braves…Pence to Phillies
I like that leadoff walk for McLouth.
These dumb Pirates keep on thinking Nate is batting 8th.
July 28th, 20117:25 pm
BREAKING NEWS- that sounds real……. NOT!!
Thank you kung fu panda! wtg Nate
BB for Mclouth. Well, that’s only because he was in the 8th spot and they were pitching around him… Oh wait.
Yes I thought nate only had a high OBP due to hitting 8th? Lets see how that works out for sea bass tonight…
July 28th, 20117:26 pm
I thought he could only walk in the 8 hole? I mean dozens of bloggers swore it was so.
He must really be out.
@noleee: How about is inability to produce runs (see RBI total)? How about his pathetic batting average (see BA)? I know, that’s all “unrealistic.” Nevermind me, just whinning. McLouth is the best thing our offense has going…has been for the past season and a half. Wow.
How did that ball not go out?
That was lame Marteen….pick it up.
That bum beltran is 0 for 1 already with the giants. We dodged a bullet with him.
The Phils are aging fast and are soon going to have to replace some players. They won’t be able to do it from within and they won’t have the money to sign anyone descent. We win now and win later. Phillies just win now. We go on another pennant streak. Hooray.
There goes the no-hitter.
C’mon, let’s get the shut out next.
July 28th, 20117:27 pm
Here we go boys!!
great hit freddie and great speed from nate there
He is insane. SoCal rules.
Now let’s see if we can score from third with lest than two outs
July 28th, 20117:28 pm
The Phils are aging fast and are soon going to have to replace some players.
Yeah – that’s what everyone said before the season too. And then the season happened.
Why dont we just get matt diaz back?
We suck at getting that runner in dont we
RISP, big issue
Darn you Dan Uggla.
And the inability to hit a ball to the outfield with a runner on third and less than two outs continues.
July 28th, 20117:29 pm
Small zone tonight.
some of those are at least better
If this team could play ABC baseball we’d score a lot more runs and win a lot more games.
Saw MLBTV interviewing Raul Ibanez today…..pretty cool dude. That big chaw of his in the batter’s box makes him look younger though. Dude looks every bit of 39 w/o it.
Getting to 1000 post…go DOB

@John’s Creek Fan
You are wrong about players on the DL not allowed to be traded…..it is just that it has to be approved by the Commissioner’s Office just like a transaction of cash over $1 million.
I looked it up and quoted it last night on Schultz’s blog….apparently it is to ensure that injured players are not traded without everyone being aware of the player’s condition. I would think that Schafer’s injury would be pretty easy for everyone to verify.
Players placed on the 15-day disabled list may be moved to the 60-day list at any time, but not vice versa. Players may be placed on either disabled list retroactively for a maximum of 10 inactive days and may remain on either list for as long as required to recover. During this 10 day period, a player status is said to be day-to-day, indicating that the team is in the process of deciding if the player must be placed on either DL or if he is healthy enough to return to active service. Injured players may not be traded without permission of the Commissioner nor may they be optioned to the minors, though they may be assigned to a minor league club for rehabilitation for a limited amount of time (30 days for pitchers, 20 for non-pitchers).
The only “problem” with getting MattyD is that he’s on a two year contract and the Pirates are contending, so they are probably not selling.
Let’s go hinske
Sooooo close to getting out…
Yes some luck at last! Great swing but boy did jones misplay that ball in right
I CALLED THAT!!!!!
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
