If the Braves decide to fire some guys within the organization it should include Chip. He and Joe together bring out the redbull. Sooooooo booooooooorin! UGH!
jo-jo probably has more wins than blowe, and you know how we do against crappy pitching
Slim to None and Slim Left Town
Back to Losersville for the Braves. This collapse will set the franchise back to 80’s like standards.
Way to go, Fredi … and Lowe … and BMac … and Heyward … and Chipper’s big mouth … and on and on!
The A Bomb
Chip finally said something TRUE.
Youngsters have cojones. Regardless of toothless vets.
kwajbraves…..the way the offense is going…this game was just about over when utley hit the homerun in the 1st
Braves have no heart!!
September 27th, 20118:23 pm
If they gotta keep Lowe next year make him the pre game batting pitcher!!!
stizz (Braves & Falcons fan til death)
Right when I think I can get away from Chip’s voice, I hear it on the Steve Bartman doc.
Don’t call me sweetheart. (Which you spelled wrong, by the way).
Phillies are 7-0 when they have this starting 8 playing together. Hard to believe this is only the 8th game that they have had all their guys in.
Hey Joe Simpson, we don’t score 4 in a game these days!
At the game and everyone here let Lose have it. I don’t know if the showed on tv but he went right to the clubhouse.
September 27th, 20118:24 pm
OhhhYeaahhhh, close. He has two less wins than Lowe now.
Since Fredi was so confident about them making the playoffs I hope he made it a prerequisite that in order to get a NLDS start you needed to pitch at least 5 innings in your last start of the year. Lowe didn’t and didn’t leave with an injury, that should disqualify him
hit utley! take him out. he dont have any business even playing in a meaningless game.
Didn’t Chipper say something about them and Phils in playoffs?
come on phills get you about 32 more runs. It don’t matter.
dear god, will you ever stop defending Lowe?? The guy is garbage, yet you run to his defense every chance you get. Lowe has sucked his entire time in Atlanta, except for one month last year. Give it a rest.
Dear god would you open your freaking eyes and realize at this point with the injuries to the staff we don’t exactly have many other options. If this offense had picked up a run or two here or there its a very manageable game. Go ahead hate Lowe but he’s here and he was the best we had tonight. B*tching and moaning like some immature 12 year old isn’t going to change that fact. Like I said he could have pulled a Glavine at the end of the mets epic meltdown but he didn’t. He tried to give us something. What’s so wrong about saying that. The guy was trying.
Evan, agree, but guarantee you Charlie will roll out the October starting 8 again tomorrow. Blanton’s pitching for a spot in the post season bullpen, and has been strong since coming off the DL. And Hamels will be pitching a few innings out of the bullpen behind Blanton. So no easy game tomorrow either.

J.B Shuck playing CF for the Astros tonight…
Stizz- Cubs best offseason move in the last century has got to be the departure of Chip. Great move in my books.
I apologize – Lowe only gave up 4 runs rather than 5 (of course the runner at 1st is his should he score) and I thought he’d get 5 innings in rather than only 4. A run an inning – that’s about right for our Ace!
Did you know that every postseason game Hudson has started (7 total) his team has lost.
Perhaps it normally makes no sense, but in this case, I think it may make sense to send Lowe out no matter if you have to eat his 15 mil contract. How can Fredi or this team or the fans not look at this guy and associate him with doing his share to help faciliate the Braves historic meltdown. Lowe will be a constant reminder of a bad marriage and bad result.
Just let him go.
Team has no fight left in it, man. No fight at all. Really sad to watch.
bravofan – everyone there should boo the stinkin’ Braves right off the field – bunch of pathetic losers
this should tell management something about somebody.
think about that one.
HOUSTON HAS A RUNNER ON 1ST. YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Our pitchers can’t get anybody out anymore. Good thing is the nightmare will be over tomorrow.
people are right, this collapse could make us and the Mets the basement of the NL East
P B Orr
Anyone who doesn’t realize that the real problem in this team is Reddi Fredi the Magic Manager Man, doesn’t know jack chit about baseball. They should throw him the keys to a purple Harley with pink chiffon saddle bags and say sayonara dude. I can’t stomach that stupid clueless look for another second.
September 27th, 20118:26 pm
I guess it is “cap tipping time” it should be “hang up your cap” time..
Fire Larry Parrish
Nicely done, McCann.
God, what garbage you are.
Pass ball McCann
McCan’t strikes again
What a great catcher.
bravofan, our announcers wouldn’t dare EVER even come close to disrespecting a player. Even a Lowe who is clearly as unprepared as any pitcher game to game as you can get.
Next the fans need to boo these pathetic hitters.
nice catch brain….moron….can u do anything else wrong lately?
Hypo Chon Dri Ack
Did you see that throw from right field in Houston! Wow! Obviously it wasn’t Heyward making the throw!
Come on, Viz. Double play ball….
September 27th, 20118:27 pm
great catcher there boys one of the best
McFann :Ô: :Ô: :ô:
“That ball’s broken……it’s tilted down there!!…”
NL East: The starting 8 will start, I don’t know if they play the whole game though. Hamels will probably only pitch one maybe two innings.
Lil' Barry Bailout
If the Braves miss the play-offs, how soon will you and Fredi go riding together? — UKUGA
Not planning on it, since we did it last winter for an introductory story before his first year as manager. Why, you want to go along? Or that just make you feel better, when your team is disappointing you, to make a snarky comment that has nothing to do with anything?
If the Braves blow this….and Gonzalez returns…..90-100 losses next season.
This month is a preview. We need a leader.
Wow. that ball was absolutely crushed.
it was over at 2-0, so this HR doesn’t bother me
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! see ya’ll later….no point in watching this anymore lol
keep talking how great these rookies are Chip..you dope
“Lowe only gave up 4 runs rather than 5 (of course the runner at 1st is his should he score)”
be honest, you knew that run was going to score
That is a corked bat. He didn’t even hit that solidly
September 27th, 20118:28 pm
What an embarrassment this franchise is right now.
Great catch McCann. It was only down the middle and knee high.
6-0. My prediction came an inning too late.
I just turned on the game and the very first thing I see is McCann’s passed ball. This team is like a little league team.
6-0. Rough night. Tough to be positive.
The alternative isn’t always better.
See? Guy woulda scored anyway…
At this point, I think I’d rather they show the STL-HOU game and just do game breaks for when the Phillies score runs.
What a bunch of crap. This team sucks badly. Hello more fun in 2012
DOB is abrasive tonight!
Worst Team in Baseball. Just took until September to see the real quality.
Find your balls, Braves.
Braves organization has never looked this silly since that deadly June several years back. This is flat out sad….
Everyone on here should thank hunter pence. he just saved us the heartache of hoping we had a chance to come back. he ended our hopes early tonight
Thanks god that I turn the TV off when it was 2-0 Philly
September 27th, 20118:29 pm
I am telling you we will not win another game this season. This is becoming a regular failure of this team. And that idiot sitting in the dugout that is suppose to be leading this team, has no idea what to do.
Pence just destroyed that. That was impressive, I gotta say.
You all are upset, but once it was 1-0, we were in trouble.
This game was over the second Fredi put Lowe on the lineup card.
I’m not embarrassed. It’s the players that have to live with the collapse, not me. I just watch ‘em.
Turn out the lights
this party is over!!
DOB getting pissy now. I guess its really affecting us all.
Ummmmm – glad we’ve got McCann in there for his .198 batting average in September because his fielding is rivaling Chipper Choke Boy
How about Randall Delgado showing much more in his debut than Viz and Julio? Not to say that he’ll have a better career. Just that he’s certainly shown more mound presence and command, in my opinion.
I quit. UNCLE!
Only hope is the Astros. The Atros people. Wow has it gotten as bad as it can get. Fredi and the staff need to be changed in the offseason. How can anybody disagree with this? Epic collapse and we’re witnessing it.
September 27th, 20118:30 pm
May not see another victory until next April.
cole will pitch
Wow, watching the Astro’s game and the Stros announcers were giggling about the previous 4-0 score of our game. How bad can we be that the Astro’s announcers can chuckle at us. That’s is so telling.
Lowe’s line for Braves: 4 IP, 5 R, 6 H, 0 BB, 2 K. Threw 45 strikes in 72 pitches, faced one batter in 5th
I love Fredi’s decision to put in a guy with a runner on and the heart of the order up that hasnt pitched in half a month. Frediot is his name folks.
“There’s no I in team, but there’s definitely a fire in Fredi.”
Astros bases loaded 1 out
T for Texas
Here come the Astros. LOL
Ooh! I haven’t seen this episode of Storage Wars! That Brandi is HOT!
Bunch of Clueless Clowns – that’s our Atlanta Braves!
But there’s actually still people on here who think they have a chance! They’re as clueless as the team they follow.
September 27th, 20118:31 pm
Reminds me of Eddie Haas managing the Braves, Rebel without a damn clue!
That was funny DOB and I don’t even know what “snarky” means.
The bye bye Lowe club lives another start.
So over it.
lets go Astros!!!!
please just no wc playoff game..save us the embarassment
Bases loaded for Houston. 1 out. 8th place hitter up in J.R. Towles.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
