Lowe is facing a real lineup. He’s throwing a shutout if he’s facing braves hitters. You have to score to win. Give the phillies hitters some credit, they are doing their job. Can’t say the same about ours.
good thing the season is over….if it was just starting…..can u imagine? what a terrible season to endure lol
Lets use Medlen. Lowe earned his money for the day.
September 27th, 20117:51 pm
Booooooooooo Lowe in a must win game you pitch like crap
Lowe is nothing but a sweaty loser. Have all the money he wants, but he is a loser in all our eyes.
hmmmmmmm what the hell is Butthead doing over there in the dugout? stop acting like that Butthead, quit it you rump goblin, Lowe blows and you know it.
Braves have no heart!!
After they collapse they better fire Freddi.. Gotta get rid of all the bad vibes.. Mets didn’t after their collapse and look at them now!! Gotta clean house!!!
Yeah, expecting Lowe to pitch a good game was a little unreasonable I guess. Not even CAB could have expected that.
how goes it guys ?
The phillies get runners on and they always score unlike the Braves..
The A Bomb
The only crooked number we might see tonight out of the Braves will be in an overnight police report, it seems.
Phillies are too good for their own good?

No Braves pitchers can actually limit the damage. Anytime they allow a runner into scoring position with less than two outs the runner scores. Conversely, the Braves have trouble scoring runs with the bases loaded and no outs because nobody on that team is capable of executing a fundamental approach at the plate. Opposing pitchers probably laugh about facing the inept Braves offense.
That’s about all i can take from this team, not wasting anymore time watching this crap!
It’s super early, we might still get 3 runs.
What recent history are you basing this on?
well we have our one hit for tonight what more do yall want
this piece of sh1t team should be playing to empty stadiums. nobody should watch their games. no one buy their tickets.
The Braves can still do it! But I am a moron.
no pinch hitter – anybody surprised?
Sweaty f#cking mongoloid.
nice hit sally.
These guys are done.Have a nice winter bloggers see you next spring.
Steve from OH
The defecation’s about to hit the A/C. How are you?
This inning is ALL on Brian McCann for screaming to Lowe to throw at third. Anyone with some sense knew Ruiz was already safe before Lowe even threw the ball.
He has the worst batting average in MLB since the date he came off the DL and his defense is atrociously terrible. He just cost the Braves a very important run in that inning.
Brian McCann has seriously destroyed this team and is the person that should wear it around the neck if the Braves don’t make it to the playoffs. He is awful in every category of the game right now.
I know this ass makes a lot but you gotta eat the money Braves and not start him ever again in a Braves uniform!!!
Lowe hit it just as hard as the position players
September 27th, 20117:53 pm
i hate how we could give up 12 runs in an inning and the people at these games cheer after the last out? are you kidding me? whoopty frickin do
stizz (Braves & Falcons fan til death)
Everybody should be fired from the coaching staff. At the end of the day, it’s your job to get these guys inspired and fired up.
At this point, I’d rather see Jim Mora in the dugout. Anything.
there we are Bourn
I think it’s more that we won’t be able to keep the Phillies from just scoring three runs….
I would have pinch-hit for Lowe – he is done.
Nova Scotia Steve - Braves Fan Until The End
Efrim – Phillies are too good for their own good?
No, they are too good for Atlanta.
September 27th, 20117:54 pm
We are turning into loser fans watching the scoreboard praying the Cards lose. Not our fault though. Our team is trying to rip our hearts out. Hopefully the Braves fans there just walk out here soon. Show the players, management and Wren we are done with this bullshi*.
I have seen a “secure your postseason tickets” commercial yet this evening…..maybe there will be a “how to refund your tickets” commerical..
Slim to None and Slim Left Town
Just got in. See we’ve already lost this one. Great job, Bravos! Way to show up tonight. LOL.
Here is the useless Prado.
If Fredi chose to pitch Lowe on his own, then he should be fired.
If Wren forced him to pitch Lowe, then Wren should be fired.
The Braves are the best! We still have a chance.
Efrim, you having a calmer day today?
They gave up a week ago.
hahaha laura thats funny…..i mean…..i hate the fact that we even have to talk about it….but still…good one
Calf strain for Alex? Gee whiz, what’d he do, strain it walking up the dugout steps?
I wouldnt be surprised to see Lowe pitch on opening day, LOL.
Runs keep coming…………..Let the laughs begins…………..
I just dont feel it for the Braves, just for some of their winning players………….Chipper, Freeman, Venters, Kimbrel, EOF, the rest are a bunch of losers or to young to give an opinion about them
September 27th, 20117:55 pm
I hate having to root for the Houston Astros. Just not a fan of that org. Thise Clemens and Pettitte teams….I hated them.
why is bourn still on first?
Lil' Barry Bailout
A dollar says Bourn ends the inning on first!
So do we have to cheer really hard for Astros again tonight? I’m afraid that this blog will become an Astros blog like last night
COME ON PRADO TAKE BALL 3 WHY SWING?
Wthere a Brave fan alive that actually thought Lowe was going to pitch well tonight. I don’t so much blame him…he just sucks….as I blame the manager for running him out there every turn no matter how bad he is. Why not Tehehan or anyone tonight? This game started with a 4-5 run deficit by virtue of him pitching.
Fredi is awful, awful. For some time wish Ozzie Guillen would come here, shake things up, get rid of this country club mentality. The only thing that matters to the Braves is if someone is a good clubhouse guy. Forget ability. You would think Schafer was a HOFer as much as the Braves were sad about him leaving.
Bourn is the most competitive guy on our team…and our newest Brave. Just sick to death of this “nice guy” thing all day every day. NO WAY does Lowe start tonight’s game! Had a 0% chance at success. Thanks for the “loyalty” Fredi. Pathetic.
Prado to lay his sh1t now.
I try to be positive and this is what I get. Thanks Lowe, you da man. Oh, and your teammates play just like you.
dammmmmit score score score stop givin up your panties! what a buncha jerkwads!
haha omg a runner in scoring position!!!….we always get them in…..oh wait…..
And you all say Mac’s bad. Did you see how long Ruiz held that ball?
September 27th, 20117:56 pm
The Braves need to do whatever it takes to get rid of Lowe this off-season. Even if they have to eat more than half of his salary, it’s worth it. This need to be his last start as a Brave.
Bourn had to do it himself.
I do look forward to seeing a whole year of Bourn at the top of our order
hey can yall remember that time when we won that ballgame huh can yall?
N Nine, if Fredi uses a righty to face the middle of the order in the late innings of a close game, I will not be calm.
Oh wow a stolen base. So maybe we come close to scoring a run. A run that Lowe will give back within 10 seconds of the next inning.
yea good move gonzalez on starting Derek Lowe once again. 3-0 already. pitiful. now that inning i dont care u get the sure out at first u minimize the damage to 1 .. instead they gambled and it burns them yet again. Better hope for a miraculous comeback by this pathetic offense or a miracle in Houston. With Derek Lowe on the mound this game is already over. way to gooo.. Go Tampa . A team that has balls and guts and a Real Team. How many times can Gonzalez just stick with the status quo. Prado is not ur # 2 man yet constanza and the burner richardson have sat on thier rear ends and done nothing.. Good managing gonzalez again.. Its tied after tonight mark it down.
This inning is ALL on Brian McCann for screaming to Lowe to throw at third
Brian McCann has seriously destroyed this team and is the person that should wear it around the neck if the Braves don’t make it to the playoffs.
So it’s his fault there was a runner on 2nd and it was his fault DLowe gave up a base hit to the next guy? It’s his fault the team doesn’t hit with RISP, his fault the pitchers are missing targets, his fault everyone else is not hitting either? Just want to be clear…
atta boy prado, sometimes we play 4 in the bigs
“Lowe is facing a real lineup”
Delgado, the rookie, didn’t give up his second run to this same lineup until the 5th inning. Lowe, the vet, bested him by 2 innings fewer
I have never seen a team miss so many hittable pitches. It’s unreal
Lil’ Barry Bailout- you owe me something on the dollar menu ^.^
September 27th, 20117:57 pm
good to know prado has any clue whats going on
Hmm…I was confident in a win all game long…..really thought Lowe would crank out a solid performance here.
Must say, I don’t even think it’s his fault…if the coach can’t see how poorly he’s been…and can’t pull the plug on the guy…then what else is he suppose to do quit? He’s going to take the mound when given the chance.
This is on the coach to shut him down for the year. These games mean far too much to roll out a man that just doesn’t have it anymore and hasn’t for some time.
Sorry Lowe, I hope to god you aren’t in the rotation on my Braves vacation next summer……I managed to schedule the Giants series this summer without you and hope to do the same down the road. I won’t pay to see this.
Here’s hoping we explode with the bats!
Prado, get your head outta your azz!
The Fatboy Waddle

A few days ago I said the Braves had secured the wild card, boy am I a moron or what?”
No Leo. You are now just another member of the Atlanta media machine spewing the Braves company line no matter how obviously inferior this team is.
can’t fool that ump marteeen
what a break for Prado
If the Braves miss the play-offs, how soon will you and Fredi go riding together?
Come on Chip.
saved by JIMMY! Prado with another weak swing
Thats the only way they stand a chance….Philly errors.
Got to make them pay.
There you go…Door is open. All yu gotta do is walk through it.

Lee–dunno, just don’t think the kid is quite ready for the prime time. Not that I think there’d be a great deal of difference between the two. 6 of one, a half dozen of the other type of thing to me.
understand Steve…he!! right now it does not matter who pitches … Gibson, Koufax, Palmer, Cy Young or whomever pitches…this team really cannot depend on this line-up next season..McCann is fine but his fat arse cannot be expected to carry this theam this late in a season in a catcher’s position above all to the end…same w/Chipper’s old age creeping in…something has to change next season
the steal kept us out of the double play. Rollins was also thinking about Bourn
we got lucky. come on Chip!
T for Texas
Another reason Cristhian should not have been used yesterday, was so he would be available today. Lowe should have been pinch hit for/pulled from the game this inning.
Let’s gooo Chipper tie this baby up
The table is set for our “big bats”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
September 27th, 20117:58 pm
Make em pay, Chipper!
another DP… wow
Prado was voted the best hit and run hitter in the league.
How do they know?
Can anyone remember him hitting in a hit and run this season?
I watch nearly every game and am a Prado fan but we aren’t
a hit and run team.
Lowe is so bad I honestly rather see Linebrink out there.
And it is really hard for me to say that.
Come on Roger.
For the love of the game…one time.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
