Slap hitter eh?
one thing is for sure… after the onley and rosenthal tweets, no one knows sh&t.
From an evaluator: Braves looking to be creative and do a Hunter Pence deal. Still talking. #trades”
And then Rosenthal tweets this:
The Phillies and Astros are progressing toward a deal for right fielder Hunter Pence, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.
Im not sure anyone knows whats going on right now
July 29th, 20117:47 pm
Damn, kid can move.
Lowe’s attitude sux, trade him for a pallet of fertilizer.
Impressive wheels. Can’t hit a lick tho.
July 29th, 20117:48 pm
Good job, Marteeeen!
Come On Fab-5-Freddie!!!
I disagreed with uga-brave last night about Prado. I think, no, I KNOW that Martin will be just fine.
July 29th, 20117:49 pm
Turner Field promotion idea in honor of Constanza: Opposite Day.
I’m stuck with the Marlins telecast. Please let me know if our guys pass along any good tidbits.
Well done, FF!!!
njbraves, I was smart enough to know that all you needed was a little ribbing to go off and show how much of a jackass you are.
I’ll remind you that you called me an idiot before I called you a jackass. I simply said in a roundabout way that if you don’t like how the Braves are run (building the system and bring those players along), that you should become a Yankees or another big market team’s fan.
Nothing more. Lighten up Francis.
noliee, his defense is legit. I’d rank him on my top 5 defensive CF
Fab 5 Freddie!
Nice Agressiveness Martini
Stay hot Freddieee!
Freddie is pretty damn good
Nice job FF!! And Marteen running hard to 3rd.
July 29th, 20117:50 pm
Fans are hungry for good news for morale purposes.
Come on, Danny….bring that run home!!
Make it 20 Dan.
Pence is not worth what all the talk is suggesting. He is good but you would think that he is Chipper of 6 or 7 years ago. He is a solid player that the Astros are about to use to get a lot better by sending him packing.
I want a move as bad as anyone but its gotta be a good one. Pence isn’t that much better than others out there.
Bourn is the Astro I would rather have!
July 29th, 20117:51 pm
I was hoping that Constanza was called up because we found some sucker to take McClouth
For anyone not familiar with Uggla’s walkup up song and the artist LMFAO here’s the video, creative outfits…..
Are You Pretty Boy Flexing after the Ray Edwards Deal?
July 29th, 20117:52 pm
Please hit a fly ball
Uggla’s butt cheeks tense up with RISP. Hoping he delivers here
Those freakin’ DP’s are killin’ us!!!!!
they just find ways not to score
BTW, njbraves, If you’re to flippin studpid to grasp the differnce between what my initial post about WHAT WE COULD GET IN RETURN for B-Mac, along with playing the better defensive catcher in Ross, and thinking I actually SUGGESTED trading Mac?
Then your #1 gift on your Christmas list should be Hooked on Phonics…. because you sir…. cannot read (or comprehend what you read).
But thanks for playing. If they’re weren’t dumb people around, us smart ones wouldn’t have anything to compare ourselves to. Well done.
Braves have to make these hits count. Too late. Couldn’t even get it typed.
July 29th, 20117:53 pm
TnBrian: Everybody’s butt cheeks tense up with RISP lately. It’s getting annoying.
That is why he needed a fly. He stinks with runners on.
U got to be effing Kidding Me
Thats Why I could care less about Struggla’s hitting streak when he doesn’t get hits in tose kinds of situations!
“Buster_ESPN Buster Olney
The question for the Braves/pence is whether they can get creative enough, fast enough, to beat out the Phillies. #trades”
Another example of this damn team not being able to get a run in with less than 2. DAMNIT…
Uggla can hit solo homers but seems to GIFDP when someone is on base. Oh well!!
Got the laptop back. Y’all are stuck with me for the game now.
he has been doing some better this year than the last few I’ll agree that much Tomas. but many nights he is living on his rep
DPs cancelled scoring opportunities on yesterday twice at least, and now they’re starting the process afresh.
July 29th, 20117:54 pm
And of course, while calling a fellow blogger stupid…. I spell the word stupid. Priceless.

Marlins pitcher looks just like a skinny Russ Ortiz
“TnBrian: Everybody’s butt cheeks tense up with RISP lately. It’s getting annoying.”
Damn That! They hit as if they got Royally Violated like that dude on “American History X”
Hi T’hawkin. I like the Edwards signing, definitely need some more sacks.
He sucks with runners on.
N8…you were being a smart azz like you always are. I have no problem building the farm system, I actually prefer to build a team that way. However, at some point you have to use that system to your advantage and improve the big club.
DOB: can you see Wren up in his box? How many innings will he have his phone up to his ear? Better yet, observe when he hangs up and if he hi-fives anyone, or anyone slaps him on his back in a congratulatory manner, ok?
Then it will be “Breaking news……..bombshell tonight………….”
July 29th, 20117:55 pm
Well another missed opportunity to just have a productive out. If this play continues the wild card lead will be gone and september will be alot more interesting.
Kat – I just purchased a LG BluRay player. It has the MLB app and the Netflix one too and I must say the streaming movies and television series that Netflix has are almost unlimited. The model # is BD690 and I am very happy with it.
Charlie Morton tonight:
Six of the Phils’ hitters have hits.
It’s the bottom of the second.
Brandon from Warner Robins
July 29th, 20117:56 pm
Derrick Lowe for free just pick up the very large contract.
Phillies up 7-0.
Holy **** is Jerry Meals calling this game?
which is worse. When they cant get anybody on at all or when they can get them on but not get them in?
July 29th, 20117:57 pm
Lmao, the Marlins announcers said that ball would have gotten over McLouth’s head easily. I tend to agree.
“Another example of this damn team not being able to get a run in with less than 2. DAMNIT…”"
As Many ‘Streak Hitters” we have on this team and no speed its bound to happen. Problem is this will happen in Choptober, Bank On It!
Strange moment before the game. Reporter asked Constanza if he was intimidated about joining big league hitters. He said, “What? I thought I was going to join the Atlanta Braves!”
July 29th, 20117:58 pm
Bourn gives us a real leadoff guy.
Then we have one of the best 2 hitters in the league with Prado. Bat control, sprays the ball around, strikes out very little.
Freddi, Mac/Ross, Uggla, A hitter in LF coming from somewhere???, Heyward
Finishing up with a solid defender at SS.
We’d be alright then!
keylargo ..can I ask where you got it and how much it was… I don’t need a new dvd player …I’d only be getting it so I don’t have to hook my laptop to the tv for baseball games..so I don’t want to spend too much since I’ll only be really using it for half of the year.
N8… You can’t spell and don’t know when to use to or too. Yup, I’m the dumb one.
Charlie Morton throwing BP
Morrison is a funny guy. I don’t really keep up with tweets/twittering(?) but his are amusing.
July 29th, 20117:59 pm
“N8…you were being a smart azz like you always are.”
Oh… so you acknowledge the smartass and sarcasm. Here I thought I was just a no it all, idiot who has your permission to go EF myself.
What did you want us to say to you?
You post on a blog about the Atlanta Braves that you are sick and tired of the way the Braves are operating. Do you want a lollipop or a back rub to make you feel better?
If you don’t like how the team is being run….. find a new team. Or wait it out until Wren gets fired.
You tell me how somebody who doesn’t mind the way the organization is being run should have responded to that initial post. When you give me a good answer, I’ll apologize for being a smartass.
But if you post off the cuff “angry” posts like that, you should expect some sarcasm over it.
Charlie’s off the wagon again.
July 29th, 20118:00 pm
I thought Hurtward would be have a “Mike Stanton” Year at the start of the season…
I have seriously gotten my feelings hurt this year with Hurtward!
And I blame it on BSPN, I hate those Turds!
Thats why he playing SS
That was sexy!!
Nice turn boys.
once you get used to it Kat I bet you use it more. I like Samsung a bit better than LG but both are great and habit forming. check around on the web for a good price
N8…the issue with trading a guy like Mac is twofold. You lose your best player and you further delay the time frame for being a very good team. Dumb idea.
July 29th, 20118:01 pm
How about Nate, Lowe, lugo and Proctor in a package
What does the Braves being creative mean? How complex can this be? The best offer wins… Are we trying to get Pence and another Astro?
(Sopheee, do you have twitter? can I follow you?)
July 29th, 20118:02 pm
Nice Barehand Flip and throw there Struggla. Fab 5 Freddie Saved your ass. Please don’t do that Flashy Crap in October. Even Though BSPN feeds off of it Fab 5 Freddie isn’t gonna save all of them in every game.
It amazes me how us guys that are for the most part inactive outside of mowing the yard, play church league softball three times a week with all the passion of a playoff race and seem to avoid injury. Yet the fine tuned athletes that are our Atlanta Braves can’t stay healthy.
July 29th, 20118:03 pm
Braves have actually improved batting average since the break, but RISP has dropped a lot and so has the power
Enter your comments here
cab, of course you can follow me but I don’t actually have a Twitter account.
If someone grabs my attention I go straight to their account online to read up.
Va Braves fan-
Perhaps adding a third team? I dunno, I guess I’m more left-brained.
July 29th, 20118:04 pm
Phillies progressing towards acquiring Pence, all signs pointing to us acquiring Ludwick. The gap between the Braves and Phillies talent level increases.
Wren needs to realize that if the Phillies get Pence and we go with a guy like Ludwick, we don’t stand a chance against them.
I know Chip can really get on your nerves, but would you rather have that or a guy who acts likes he’s reading off a manual’s guide to dull broadcasting like Gant? Man that guy’s BOOOOOOORING!
I think it would be a little hard to follow you then…
July 29th, 20118:05 pm
Tomahawkin i agree Heyward reminds me of Bob Horner or Claudell Washington.
Kat – the one I have has a 250GB hard drive in it to store movies etc in it. They make them cheaper without the hard drives in them. I’m down in the Fl Keys and there are very few places to shop and I buy most things like that over the internet. I think Walmart carries the LG brand and they have rated very good.
you can follow me cab
N8… It’s know it all, not no it all. If you’re going to claim to be smarter to me, please learn how to spell. As far as how to run the team, I’m not saying they need to trade every young player they have. However, you can’t tell me this team would be severely set back by moving a pitcher or two in the right deal.
July 29th, 20118:06 pm
Update from ESPN.com Rumors
UPDATE: The Braves are looking to add an athletic corner outfielder they can control beyond 2011, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, which eliminates Josh Willingham and Ryan Ludwick and highlights Pence.
It seems odd, however, that the Braves aren’t more heavily linked to the centerfielders on the market — Michael Bourn, Denard Span, B.J. Upton — since Jordan Schafer and Nate McLouth are both injured and McLouth is on the disabled list.
UPDATE: Just seconds after FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal tweets that the Phillies and Astros are progressing toward a deal for Pence, ESPN The Magazine’s Buster Olney tweets (literally, 22 seconds later) that the Braves are looking to get creative to make a big push for the all-star right fielder.
The second one was the most recent.
July 29th, 20118:07 pm
My crystal ball predicts that runs once again are going to be scarce.
I’m guessing that was sarcasm…
(What’s with the “i” in your name?) Do you actually have a twitter account, or are you being…well, you?
July 29th, 20118:08 pm
Do you guys realize we are facing a RELIEF pitcher tonight?
Hurtward is staring to P’s me off like Francoeur did!
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
