efrim, that is the same formula the yankees used in the late 90’s.
True Stizz … I think my Livan issue goes back to the 1997 NLCS and since that series I have never been a big fan of his. Now that he gone fat and throws slow its even more frustrating to watch. Not the pitcher I was wanting to see after a break. Oh well 9 games up in the Wild Card is enough to make me sleep a bit better.
August 30th, 20119:01 pm
Yeah McFann…I bought a Freeman player t-shirt in Atlanta and just hours later he hit the winning run off Brian Wilson! Fate? No…..just FF5
lol, a lot of pent up frustration on the blog…We were due for a down series
Nevermind, wishful thinking.
August 30th, 20119:02 pm
Now Hernandez is just having fun at the Braves expense. He is carving them to pieces with this array of command and junk pitches.
I need a Fab 5 Freddie Tee! Chicks Dig It!
If he threw 88 with a lot of sink, well then that changes things, but he doesn’t.
August 30th, 20119:03 pm
Braves are bending over for Livan now. Just laying down and taking it. Run JJ out there again. Lets hope his arm falls off and heads to the mexican league.
Tomahawkin…..need that release once in a while when you have a huge WC lead…….keeps us in the hunt! haha
Chris from Sac,
So when’s your science project due?

“Dont be mad. Your boy Heyward will be ok. He will have a nice life when his overrated ass gets released by the Royals.
Dont be mad.”
OUCH, Damn! Thats Cold!
August 30th, 20119:04 pm
I wore my Freddie T through olympic park and a homeless dude asked me for my coffee.
I don’t know what that means, but i’m just saying….FF5 has powers man!
“I need a Fab 5 Freddie Tee! Chicks Dig It!”
I don’t think chicks are diggin anything FF is offering.
TB braves fan
August 30th, 20119:05 pm
What will us Atlanta teams fans have to look forward too. After the braves loose the first round? No Falcons, Maybe the dogs will be good this year.
“…We were due for a down series”? The Mets just slapped the Braves around on Friday with their AA roster. After three days off, this is the performance that the Braves bring to the park?
August 30th, 20119:06 pm
The Braves hav a whopping 5 hits, in their last 15 innings of baseball.
The hall of famer with the running catch…
August 30th, 20119:07 pm
I only Drink The Kool-Aid If its Mixed…But you guys are Ripping Double J as If he is making Lowe’s Money Tomahawkin
Jurrjens is getting ripped because he sucks. As a matter of fact, he don’t amount to sweat on a good pitcher’s sack.
i have an idea. lets put Martinez in every 5th day for JJ
Going to the games this weekend like I said last time you could not pay me to go and watch this team play the Nats or Mets. I WILL NOT GO TO ANY GAME LOWE PITCHES. What the hell is wrong with JJ.
Peter Moylan’s line at Gwinnett tonight:
1IP 0hits 0runs 0walks 3K’s
Heyward is the best, Just like JJ
“What will us Atlanta teams fans have to look forward too. After the braves loose the first round? No Falcons, Maybe the dogs will be good this year.”
Holy crap….need a tissue? It’s a loss man, there are 163 games and we lose over 60 in a year? Do you have an anxiety attack for all of them?
Line on Jurrjens, 6 earned runs in 6 innings, eight hits, including three homers, two walks, three Ks. 100 pitches, 67 strikes.
August 30th, 20119:08 pm
If bourn was Schafer, that would be an out…
Before anyone on this board jumps off a bridge about tonight’s game, please take a deep breath and keep a little perspective. MLB season is a 162 game marathon, not a 1 game sprint. And barring a historic collapse, the Braves have comfortably positioned themselves to be part of the post season. In my mind, there’s no doubt the NL East is the best division in the NL this year. Easy to lose perspective when you’re about to drop 7 1/2 games behind the best team in baseball…but the Braves are better than any other NL team outside their own division…
Tell me what’s worse..watching this game..or the post game comments to follow
I don’t think we need worry about Scott Bouris robbing the bank when JJ and TH become free agents, anybody will be able to get them for a bag of balls.
Next for Braves: Washington Nationals
6:51 pm August 29, 2011, by Carroll Rogers
The Nats have been limited to four or fewer runs in each of their past seven games, including Sunday’s loss to the Reds in 14 innings at hitter-friendly Great American Ballpark.
Trade jj to the yankees..
Yall will have to admit these nats are a tough team
August 30th, 20119:09 pm
Is it 83 in the NBA now?
what exactly do you mean by no falcons? i really hope youre not one of the morons who tries to predict how bad theyre gonna be based on pre season.
NL East…the Brewers would beg to differ..
I hate to say this, but I am really starting to question the quality of Michael Bourn’s defense in CF. He has looked foolish on several balls in his tenure as a Brave.
good thing the stadium is empty
Is this practice for the Nats, or are the Braves really trying to compete?
What did they do for three days without any baseball games?
We might lose this game…
August 30th, 20119:10 pm
Crappy Braves Game and their is nothing else on TV
get all the rust out of the way today
Yes they do.
BTW, where’s Mitchell? He’s missing all the fun!
What is it about Livan Hernandez that perplexes our team??
OK, so Martinez gives up 3 runs. So he sucks too……..
HA. Tommy says theyre happy to at least be back on the field. yeah……they sure look happy
Only highlight of the night was the fan throwing the ball back.
Cristhian’s ERA since the hurricane break – 40.50…
Oh yes glavine they gave up on this game before it even started.
I know we wil be in the playoffs, What is alarming is Jurrjens and fact that he will be in the starting rotation in the playoffs despite his ugly performances. That is the frustrating part.
Hudson, Beachy, Minor…playoff rotation
August 30th, 20119:11 pm
August 30th, 2011
This moron will base his pessimism on that Green Bay butt kicking we got last january….it was enough for me….spare yourself and get off the bandwagon.
My timing is impeccable.
August 30th, 20119:12 pm
Bundle Hanson and JJ and trade them to the Marlins for Infante.
Phil you think.
Nats about to end a 6 game losing streak
Pretty much anyone on the blog can tell you what will be said in the post game comments right now.
lol, Blog Is off The Chain Tonight!
Its only one game???
Wow..now lets rag on Bourn…give me a break
Dammit PHIL you caught my typo but I already was watching the screen refresh! lol
August 30th, 20119:13 pm
Now it’s down to 27.00. Now THAT’S improvement!
August 30th, 20119:14 pm
15 to 1 last two games—–so far
you’d figure that by now we’d have found a way to solve the great riddle that is livan hernandez. i watched him shut us down a couple weeks ago in DC. couldnt help observing a few things:
– batters should focus on the off-speed pitches. he throws them a lot, and around 65 mph. just a lollipop going up there. if you’re watching for it, it’s easy to hit. his effectiveness lies in surprising you with it.
–instead of that, the braves seem to key on the fastball, which is what i think livan wants you to do, so that he has you set up for the off-speed stuff. if he throws the fastball, it’s around 85 so even keying on the slow pitches, you can catch up to it. but he doesnt want to throw many fastballs, as they’re so hittable.
–dont try to hit him hard. just it where it’s pitched. if you go up there swinging for the fence, you fall right in his trap, and pop it up to the outfield.
of course, this stuff seems so obvious, i wonder why we havent come up with a unified approach on him by now. any ideas? am i missing something? b/c it all seemed incredibly obvious sitting a few rows off the field.
You can tune in Fox News buddy!!
How about C: reading in-game when we’re losing
Braves Fan In NJ
Took dogs for walk came back checked on score 9-1 great job guys!!
Ralph..I would even take Infante’s glove for them…..i shouldn’t say that
August 30th, 20119:15 pm
I’m starting to like Hardcore Pawn.
A crazy guy with a butter knife or
Livan with 8 run lead?
Hanson is needed
Embarrassing to lose to a team going nowhere and 23 games out of first.
Forget the schedule for the Phillies and the Braves in Sept. It ain’t worth noting.
This team has already settled for the WC. The division is over. When you are losing to a terrible team that the Phillies dominate and the Phils are winning 8-0 over a team (Cincy) that you lost 2 out of 3 to a few weeks back….you don’t deserve a chance to get back in the division race.
Pathetic effort again…by JJ and the offense is still on vacation!
Let’s give up another 5-6 runs…… let them get it out of their system.
oh you mean youre basing opinion off LAST season? Gotcha. just makin sure
DS1 – thanks for saving me pointing that out…
Have to go teach in 10 minutes – not as annoying having to leave now…
August 30th, 20119:16 pm
Okay so we’re off JJ, and we love Lowe? Or we hate both?
Man all these new blog names…I can’t keep up with which doom and gloom wagon to follow!
Where’s CAB, Ease, CraZy………anyone……..lunch crew are you there? This evening bunch is miserable!
Gonzalez doubling with the bases loaded and 0 out would have been fine.
Kevkat. I agree Beachy(ball) and Minor (league) are our 2nd and 3rd best pictures. Maybe Tehrean (Iran) and Del Gardo can take the 4th and 5th spot
Hey Alex had a hit vs Livan, he is 9 for a million now
August 30th, 20119:17 pm
I hear ya Jay Dubu..
August 30th, 20119:18 pm
well it only took 7 innings but we are finally hitting. HA
Jason just trying to annoy certain bloggers doing that…
15 to 1…that’s the score in the Braves’ last 15 innings of baseball, and the Braves didn’t score the 15 runs.
Let’s bring up the kids and take the post season on. Good skills and not a lot of book on them. I’m disappointed in Hanson. Reminds me of Heyward earlier this year and you see where it got him. Seriously, you make a lot of money. Suck it up!
I like those two, Virginia Ranger..
August 30th, 20119:19 pm
I’m here. Generally try to avoid commenting during the in-game when we are losing. Too much negative…
I didn’t make it to Durham for the game, but have been watching on TV. Moylan came in and pitched the bottom of the 7th for Gwinett. I know it’s against AAA, but he looked very good, and struck out the side, 1-2-3.
That J-Hey hit/RBI could cost Georgie the game tomorrow.
Did Irene blew our bats away? We have scored a grand total of 3 runs in 2 games. BTW: Good hitting by Heyward there.
Give ‘em hell!
I’m calling it: 10-9 Braves in 10 innings……… You heard it here first! That E-3 is going to cost em now!!!
August 30th, 20119:20 pm
Desmond is just horrible
Braves haven’t even shown up last two games.
Our starting rotation is not looking good for playoffs.
And what the heck is taking medlin so long to come back.
It’s been over a year for him.
Strasburg has come back much quicker.
I’m hacked off tonight watching this crap.
McFann :Ô: :Ô:
N Nine Go get a refund before it’s too late!!! Get a Freeman shirt/jersey instead. You gotta like Fab 5 F.
Oh, he was one of my other choices! Unfortunately the store didn’t have any, which I thought was kinda odd. They did have a Glaus shirt, though…
Fols I bought a Freeman player t-shirt in Atlanta and just hours later he hit the winning run off Brian Wilson! Fate? No…..just FF5
Dang…wish they WOULDA had a Freddie shirt!
August 30th, 20119:21 pm
I can not remember a team whose starting pitching has fallin apart so fast!!!
Medlen had a scar tissue problem that set him back a few weeks.
August 30th, 20119:22 pm
JJ sucks right now. Period. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.
This will be 3 losses in 4 games following a good stretch of baseball. Consistency is key especially down the stretch.
JC from DR!
Nats and Mets kickin the sh!t out of the Braves.
August 30th, 20119:23 pm
two plain as day bad games in a row. I think the season is teetering on the brink right now
The Braves do not need any more days off, that is for sure.
I say sit JJ for a while, and consider moving Lowe to the pen. Surely Minor, Beachy, and Delgado cannot do any worse. I am not sure about Hudson. And, this Martinez guy has been awful.
DS OK let them get it out of their system. Of course I will have to spend the next 24 hours up here in DC having the media tell me how we are the “Natnals” bitches and rub it in like they just won 22 straight World Serices.
Good thing is that I hvae to get up at 0330 to go to work, so I don’t have to watch this crappola.
Ket Kat I was thinking that listening to the game on the way home. JJ lost it Hanson lost it, who knows about Low Ball he may be Walter Johnson in Sept.
And Glavine is boring as crap. All he does is talk about pitching.
how about having a little life or enthusiasm in your voice and tell
some interesting stories.
August 30th, 20119:25 pm
Oh Cab……..that made my night! I know you guys all see it…..I just feel so odd reading this stuff when we lose. I mean we all get a little pissed and expect wins but the hating on every player is laughable!
Then JJ will win his post-season game and they will all be buying his player shirt! haha
There are several of the Braves that are not playing stellar baseball right now.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
