This has to be D-Blowe’s last start.
If we can get to PS, D-Blowe should be a mop-up guy.
Braves have no heart!!
Lowe you are worth ever penny!!!
Maybe I’m just imagining it but I feel like I’m hearing a sustained “boo” in the background throughout this inning.

Oh Chipper……it’s almost time I pack up the old Jones #10 jersey……I grounded into a double play on my way to the kitchen wearing it just now.
BALLGAME!!!!!! (Cried as he presses the button)
That was a weak throw. A good throw gets him.
Phillies hitting sac flies. It’s pretty to watch.
Polanco SF puts Phillies up 4-0 in 4th. Manufacturing runs. What the Braves don’t do.
Lil' Barry Bailout
Look what major league hitters can do.
So at this rate it’ll be a 9-0 nothing game
This is the worst team in baseball folks. I wish they could win but there is no way.
Clearly – the Phils know how to move runners
Braves do not.
If anything else – they need to go to school watching how Phils do this.
We’re not scoring 5 runs to win folks.
The Fatboy Waddle
4 runs may as well be 12 runs.
It’s ok Fredi! You have a 3 year contract so you keep playing like this season has two more months in it.
Ugh. We need a three run homer just to get back a little confidence….and of course help in this game.

Hudson on short rest would’ve giving the bravos a better chance than D Lowe tonight.
0-2 on Ruiz. Can he put him away?
This game is over.
The scouts really fooled the fans. Jason Heyward’s arm is an inaccurate noodle.
4-0 I think you just have to leave Lowe in and hope the offense can find a miracle bat somewhere in the dugout.
well good to see Lowe keeping up his september ERA of almost 9 runs. Would have rather seen Teheran get a go at winning us a game. More reliable than this piece of crap
LOWE you can take you 15 Mill and get out town ASAP and never come back again
That was a great pitch.
J hey a little closer to the plate than usual ,I bet his arm gets better next year
Gimpah & McError
SB: Rollins (30, 2nd base off Lowe, D/McCann).
Don’t think for a minute that playoff teams won’t know they can run at will on the Brian ‘103 steals and counting’ McCann.
Hated the Lowe deal when they signed him!!! Didn’t understand why the Braves would spend all that money on a average to below average pitcher!!!
Forget next year, I think Fredi should be fired now at this moment and have Terry take over. that might at least make things interesting.
stizz (Braves & Falcons fan til death)
Now watching the Steve Bartman debacle.
September 27th, 20118:08 pm
Desperate, desperate. Got to get this guy out of there!!!!!!! But that wouldn’t be “nice”. He might get booed. So sick of this easy going laissez faire thing! Get a manager that’s a jerk, even Bobby Valentine, anyone who will shake things up! Laziest uncompetitive team I’ve seen in a long time.
So our pitching coach shouts gay slurs…and our team bends over for an entire month? Something isn’t right there…
any tips of beating the phillies?….oh wait…you guys cant anyway….nevermind i dont know what i was thinking
You just gotta laugh at how the Phillies make the Braves their little b*tch.
Well, there you go. The lead is officially insurmountable.
Poor Stizz, i feel it for ya…
Nova Scotia Steve - Braves Fan Until The End
4-0 is considered getting the doors blown off.
Then again 2-0 is a blowout against these Braves
4-0 still doable. Gotta score this next inning to give the team a glimmer of hope.
Lee in S GA
And I guess if I “have” to point any fingers (which I don’t like to do), I’d say it mostly rests on Prado and Heyward.
I agree Steve…this team depended on those 2 soooo much this season…heck I dunno ….guess time will tell
Sad to know this game is over and is only the 4th inning.
I wonder what Fredi and this team would have to do to actually get booed by the Atlanta crowd? Pour water on them and wake them up? lol
Fredi likes to B.S. himself
Having Gonzalez as manager undermines Braves.
4 innings…. 4 runs. Great job Derek. Bravo.
J-Hey could’nt throw out Mccann from third if he tried.
Lowe is fighting, actually trying when he’s got nothing left. Wish I could say the same for the offense.
September 27th, 20118:09 pm
come on whirly bird get one back jack
Really the phillies have no business playing their starters. why dont we throw at some of those guys at least once an inning and make them think twice about risking injury in a meaningless game.
Really i would nail utley at least once and that would be the end of it.
I’ve never seen a group of men react so poorly with their backs against the wall. If they had no talent, there would be no reason to be dissapointed
Please tell me the fans are boooing over this horrible performance and utter disappointment.
This should be his last braves’ stint.
He doesn’t deserve anything.
His ERA+ was 88/98/76 last 3.
That is below average for 15M.
McCann with another blunder calling Lowe to throw to 3rd with a hustling Ruiz. Blunder Mac.
Loved the shot of Fredi in the dugout during Lowe’s typical meltdown. Idiot.
September 27th, 20118:10 pm
Jake W. Someone who is trying does not go out there and give up 4runs.
“J-Hey could’nt throw out Mccann from third if he tried.”
I’m pretty sure Furman Bisher could throw out McCann from third.
Don’t talk too much smack cardsfan. Except for that fluky championship, when Braves let you back into playoffs in 06, complete underachieving for 29 years. You going to pull Dizzy Dean and Stan Musial out now? LaRussa and his white shoes can gth
if your hope lies with the falcons then you shall soon be crushed again. our fat overpaid offensive line is the equivalent of Blowe. they cant keep Ryan off his butt long enough for our offense to have a chance, and the defense is still the same train wreck it was last year
Wonder what Bobby is thinking right now.
Too bad Braves weren’t playing the Astros. Astros would bat around every inning.
Cardsfan must be very young….
Manufacturing runs. What the Braves don’t do.
They also don’t get on base or work the count in their favor so they can actually do something more than hit a single.
This is without question the worst assembly of an offense that I have ever seen and Derek Lowe definitely does nothing to compensate for the poor offense.
anyone sick of seeing college football commercials? its like every other commercial
Hey cardsfan, how’d that game end up for ya last night?
I guess that whole theory of veteran starter Derrick Lowe coming through in the clutch was just a lame pipe dream.
I will personally wire money to you if you slap the s*** out of Fredi and/or Lowe after the game.
I’ll double if you slap both.
guess you do Whoop, i’m not laughing these days
D Lowe in a must win game and of course he is terrible. I hope we just dont make the playoffs I mean why get even more frustrated watching this team struggle in the playoffs. Peace ot im done and so is this team, and if lowe starts next year well forget it too.
That’s what happens when you hand pluck a manager the way the Braves did……..this guy needs to grow a pair. I really dislike the next generation of ‘fine and dandy’ crap from this guy.
Uggla gonna get it all back with one swing
September 27th, 20118:11 pm
You never had any Mongoloid Beef from the Chinese restaurant?
dan uggla. 2 at-bats, 2 pitches, 2 outs
And this horrible pitcher has another 15 mil coming to him!!!
Damn it when is he going to see a few pitches?
you guys say whatever you want to make yourselves feel better
Fredi’s godson is really a dumb ballplayer. Gets a free pass.
Let’s face it..the whole team sucks..especially Uggla now-trying to tie the game in one swing..sheesh…it doesn’t matter what Lowe does they can’t score
Fire Larry Parrish
Hooray for first-pitch outs while down 4 runs!
what is bad is we have a bunch of guys that played over their heads most of the year and out management is delutional in thinking we have something. This team needs a change next year and we wont see it. all we will see is the same old players and crap. chipper needs to go home. he is a burden on the purse and not worth the money.
now we are going to have poor ab’s the rest of the game just so we can tip our caps
just going through the motions. looks like a replay over and over
“Polanco SF puts Phillies up 4-0 in 4th. Manufacturing runs. What the Braves don’t do”
And they won’t do it next year either because the Braves hold no one accountable to make sure this team does the fundamentals. Fredi ain’t going no where. Probably all the coaching staff will be back next year and the results will be the same.
Down 4-0 and Uggla swings at an offspeed pitch on the first pitch of the at bat? What in the hell is this team doing?
For years this entire organization has been way too laid back. Don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. So pathetic.
this is a joke
Lowe, Parrish, and Fredi Gonzalez for 2012!!!!
NO MORE PARRISH
September 27th, 20118:12 pm
Out of all the moves Wren made this year it is the one he DID NOT make that has killed the Braves second half. Should have fired Parrish at all star break when he had the chance.
Uggla making sure he can’t be accused of increasing Oswalt’s pitch count
If you Hate this Braves team give me a WOO HOO!!!
FU Uggly! Little steroided troll. Hobit looking midget!
Great play at plate in Cardinals game. 0-0 Bottom 1st.
Houston has a man on third
MILT THOMPSON IN 2012!!!!
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
September 27th, 20118:13 pm
who is the cards fan taking to? If you were so good you would have won your division
Good job B-Mac.
They also don’t get on base or work the count in their favor so they can actually do something more than hit a single. But that’s just me….
2 out double. What are the odds he scores?
Another runner to add to the LOB total.
B Mc Dub
Throw McCann a life preserver….STRANDED
And what scares me the most is that the Mets have yet to recover from their collapse.
If we do indeed fail to reach the postseason, everybody not playing the field has got to go. Can’t have that negative energy around another year.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
