Everyone needs to lay off LeBron Wren’s back. I did all I’m gonna do with this team. I’m not working any more. No trades, no deals, no phone calls to anyone in baseball unless it’s to my main man, Kanye Selig.

Ryan Howard homered bringing the Phillies up 1-0. Pence is batting fifth for them.
Thank Cab! I’ll back you up to confirm it too. I’m keeping close eye too.
Brave4life-1995 all over again??
White has been scratched from his one-inning rehab outing, MLB.com’s Jordan Bastian reports (on Twitter).
Looks like Jubaldo is gonna be traded
Yummy Fresh Doo Doo

I bet Uggla’s streak ends tonight.
July 30th, 20117:33 pm
All you Braves fans need to trust in LeBron Wren. I promise, first round exits the next 5 years in a row! Go BRAVES!
Phils up 1-0 already.
I’m gonna say this one last time…if we’re not going to pick up an outfielder then at he very least we should try to get either a Ty Wigginton or go get another strong bullpen arm to shorten the game
Seems like Heyward is hitting the ball hard… more than he’s getting credit for… they just happen to be right at someone.
Sonny Clusters where are you?
July 30th, 20117:34 pm
you don’t think he can hang on for a new MLB record of 57 games? Have some faith Yummy

chc4… if those 2 prospects don’t make it which there is decent chance with any A ballplayer then its not a failure. if you guys don’t win a WS in the next 5 years then your inactivity is a failure. It works both ways
I don’t think more than 1 or 2 prospects should be untouchable. Honestly, I think EVERY player can be traded, as long as their is equal value coming back.
Everyone is saying I choked! Well, DUH! I’m LeBron Wren!
@DOB- i realize you are a columnist but i think it’s a bit unfair to characterize the braves players as you have…..i realize that you have been ringing the big trade bell all week long, and that’s fine, but using the players to support your position is a bit much-unless you polled 15-20 of them i think it’s a tad over the top.

Hudson looks great.
Nice OF hustle there…
“Houston has already shown with the Pence dealings that it’s not letting its standouts go for less than a king’s ransom. And yes, despite what some Braves fans believe, the Astros got that from the Phillies.They got three prospects including the Phillies’ top hitting and pitching prospects, Jarred Cosart and Jonathan Singleton, both rated in everyone’s top 50 at midseason and rated in Keith Law’s top 25.”
So basically, the Astros got two of the guys who people think are among the 50 best baseball players who arent good enough to be major leaguers
That is NOT a king’s ransom for a team that is a serious playoff contender.
Because prospects, since they arent good enough to be big leaguers, will not help you win playoff games on the field, The ONLY way they can help a big league team win it all is if they can be used to get some real major leaguers for the team
You can NOT have it both ways. You are either trying to win, or you are not.
And if you are trying to win now, then your prospects are a commodity to be cashed in to help achieve that goal.
yes you are jordan, but accepting it is the first step in changing it
Get these dorks out of the booth.
And nice flaming-purple shirt, Chip.
I like Anibal Sanchez, he’s the best they have right now. Josh Johnson, Anibal Sanchez, Ricky Nolasco, and pray for rain
Pence is 0-1 this trade sucks give me back those A ball prospects
Hey Schafer! Of course you are! It was my idea to have you as are starting CF!
chc4… Also why is signing the best RBI guy in baseball a bad idea?
RJB in DC
July 30th, 20117:37 pm
noilee- Otis Nixon being an obvious exception. But for whatever reason, later on, BC never seemed to embrace the speed game afterwards. As fast as Furcal was, he only stole more than 30 bases twice in his career with Atlanta. The one year we had Loften, he stole on 27 bases (on 47 attempts). By far one of his worst years in this category during his prime.
July 30th, 20117:38 pm
Can’t they think of anybody else to bring in besides two old guys plugging golf? Not like there’s anything else going on with baseball and our Braves. Nope, nothing at all.
Both those guys look and act like robots. LOL
Isn’t this a baseball game?
I don’t give a rat’s butt about Tiger Woods or the PGA right now…
July 30th, 20117:39 pm
The Rockies are moving toward a deal with Cleveland, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports (on Twitter).
Yeah, why the heck are tehy talking about golf ? Who cares ?
Who are these nerds in the booth? Get them out of there.
July 30th, 20117:40 pm
True RJB. I hated that Cox turned against the running game. He was an Earl Wever clone: Pitching, defense and the three run homer.
FF is a heckuva player…
Shut these guys up.
If you’re going to make a trade, make a significant one. Trade for Matt Kemp. At this point I think the only untouchables should be Tehran, Vizcaino, and Pastornicky. I might even throw in Viz at this point. Kemp is the best RH bat on a non-contending team.
which one is the more painful?
or Hari Kari?
make a trade, any trade!! over pay for a minimal upgrade if you have to!!!!
Freeman can do it all
July 30th, 20117:41 pm
Wow. Freeman is amazing.
Gold Glove and ROY right there!
Listening to these two guys reminds me of a retirement home conversation. Anybody have a clue who and what they’re talking about? Golf I know, but most just rambling BS.
Thank you Freddie! End this these boring morons conversation. And he won’t shutup!!!
lol. These guys in the booth won’t shut the hell up so we can go to commercial.
Another good play by FF in first.
Marlin Announcer – Furcal to St. Louis
K with a K
haha Cameron take that you stupid punk Granger!!
Freeman ….just awesome,gotta get some Gold glove play don’t he?
Freeman ROY no offense Craig there should be 2 awards, one for pitcher, one for position player
July 30th, 20117:42 pm
Hey, according to our poster with the inside scoop, Bourn will be a Brave in 19 minutes. (Rolls eyes)
Larry and Daryl in the booth where was the other Daryl?
Adam Dunn is 2-69 against lefties with one hit being a infield single.
That’s almost impossible to believe.
I refuse to deal for any player that could help us get a ring. LeBron Wren don’t want no ring!
Turn down the TV and listen to Don Sutton & Jim Powell on the radio. Much better imo.
Neither, nolie. Listening to Matt Kemp trade suggestions is MUCH more painful.
July 30th, 20117:43 pm
Ubaldo to Indians
Furcal to Cardinals
Freeman’s a rookie. LOL.
Freeman and Heyward are both 21. Who is better ?
Gonzo a hit!
Seabass with a gift from God right there.
Pence was robbed of a hit by the Ump in first. Pirates will get every close play from here on out.
July 30th, 20117:44 pm
He got a hit….
Alex has been better lately
good start to the inning with Alex singling.
Some of you folks really need a life.
Gonzalez said Heyward has been putting in extra work in an effort to break out of the slump. On Saturday, prior to taking batting practice, he worked in the team’s indoor cage with hitting coach Larry Parrish and instructor Lee Elia.
Well, there’s the issue! No wonder he can’t break out of it. He is working with Parrish. (smile)
Shutup Chip! He reminds me of my annoying aunt Jenny. Looks like her too.
maybe they would take fab 5 freddie for kemp?
just a thought..
Nice Bunt Huddy!!!
Gonzo can do that every AB and i would be thrilled,He is at least making an effort to go the other way.
Alex has been hitting well lately.
July 30th, 20117:45 pm
George is gonna get a hit right here.
Jimenez was scratched from his start tonight, Heyman tweets.
couldn’t God have made it at least a double?
Why doesn’t Constanza try to bunt for a hit if he’s so fast?
Does everyone really believe the Braves wouldn’t trade six prospects?
You guys see George hustling?
“4 or 6 untouchables”
The very idea of a prospect being considered untouchable is very very stupid.
For a prospect to be untouchable, he’d to be so good that he’d be in the big leagues already.
In which case, he wouldnt be a prospect any more
July 30th, 20117:46 pm
Harry was drunk and funny chip is just a douchbag.
Every out that new kid has made has been by half a step or less….he is crazy fast
LeBron Wren don’t make no trades, fool! LeBron Wren spends his time making sure his hair is as bright silver as it can be! Ladies love the silver!
cabraves-seriously. Now one I forgot add for 3 pitchers was LHP Clayton Kershaw. Remember we still have Medlin plus this was a supposedly incredibly deep draft for pitchers this year. We all know that we can develop pitchers.
Yea, I love scoring first!
The A Bomb
Engine getting going for Martin.
Marteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen is back folks!!!!!
Ubaldo scratched from his start. Looks like the Indians are getting their man.
July 30th, 20117:47 pm
Ubaldo to Cleveland
Ubaldo on his way to Cleveland. Good for them. Guessing Alex White, Drew Pomeranz, etc.
no one is untouchable, some of you folk are too literal..
I don’t think they are gonna trade any prospects Efrim.
July 30th, 20117:48 pm
Kemp is not available.
Freddie has such a quick bat. Reminds me of Eric Davis
OK Popeye… blow this baby OPEN!!!!
I’m sorry most of you don’t live in SoCal….best weather….best young baseball talent in America.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
