How do people that do nothing but whine think that they are contributing anything to a blog?
How is it that the unobservant braindead among us – that would be you, for one – can keep acting as if no one should say anything about the crap to which were just subjected. WE PAY THE SALARIES by going to the dadgum games and have as much right as anyone to say what we feel.
You keep on acting like everything is great if you want to. I want to win championships, not be fed a line of crap from management after it suffers the worst collapse in the history of the national league. That’s hard to do, we just did it and we should be happy?
I don’t think so.

God bless those of you begging Reckingball and Lobosolo to shut the heck up…..
I’ve repeatedly asked them to go cheer for the kiddie soccer league where everything is wonderful….they just won’t do it, instead choosing to want us to applaud total incompetence….
Fire Larry Parrish

LARRY PARRISH JUST GOT FIRED.
I FEEL LIKE WE JUST WON THE WORLD SERIES

If a few more of you disgruntled fans would show up st the ball park to support the team instead of belly aching on here about firing a manager or coach. Why is it that we always need to fire the coach instead of lookingn at the players. Fredi had them winning for all but the last three weeks of the season with the injuries but we don’t look at that, we need to look at the highly paid athletes that didn’t perform up to standard. Take out Uggla’s heroics in the second half and we would have even been in the wildcard race. There is plenty of blame to go around but not for FW or FG on this one this lies squarely on the players.
AND THE HOT DOGS ARE TO HIGH!

They should probably just eliminate the hitting coach position, it would give us less of a middleman to scapegoat when the offense isn’t any good.
September 30th, 20114:02 pm
There is no way I will watch another Braves game, pay a dime for anything connected with them or offer any support until FG is far far away from Atlanta. If he is too brain dead to be a man, and tell it like it is, then to hell with him. The fans have been through enough.
September 30th, 20114:03 pm
@lobo(could not resist this one)I would like to answer your inquiries: while decidedly not omnipotent, I am quite accomplished and a handsome rake in my wife’s eyes(which is all what is important. As for”maroons” ,I like them with coconut and with that I bid the season of discontent adieu..
September 30th, 20114:26 pm
Add me to the list…and I started the boycut when the dufus was hired! After 21 years as an STH in the Hank Aaron Section right behind home plate I not only didn’t renew…I didn’t buy a single ticket this past season. And you know what? After watching Fruity blow game after game I am feeling like the smartest guy in world by not wasting any more money on a team that chooses to hire–and now, retain–managerial incompetence!
And as for Lobosucks and recking-no-balls, no one on here with more than a double digit takes these two goobers seriously anyway. I actually am beginning to feel guilty for picking on these two bed wetters.
September 30th, 20114:30 pm
The fans are upset, and justifiably so. We definitely need a new hitting coach and a new manager. We are stuck with Lowe, so put him in the bullpen, or in AA. Trade for someone who can hit with runners in scoring position- Michael Young from Texas would be my choice. The fans are not going to support the same players and the same coaches. Change is necessary.
September 30th, 20114:38 pm
Larry – Yeah, it was pretty low of you to be so derisive towards those mental midgets….lol!
I appreciated the kind words yesterday and look forward to another year of what can’t possibly be much next season. I won’t be at any games apparently, but I will keep up.
Fire FG so we can go to some games!
In a look back situation: The manager did good when considering all position players were on the DL except 2b and 1b, I know the 1b was out a few games but not DL. When the Constanza player was in the line-up, the braves played a different level of ball. When he was replaced by Mr. Heyward the team went into a demise that never recovered: as MR. Stengel used to say, check it out.
We can beat those Cheese Steaks!
September 30th, 20114:47 pm
Do you have comments? Don’t bother. Go eat your Cheese steak!
Delta is waiting to send Fredi back to his home country!
September 30th, 20114:49 pm
Excuses are for losers..
Da Brave are full of excuses for 20 twenty years minus the 1995 Championship! Thanks Glavin and Justice!
September 30th, 20114:55 pm
Up next Mr Blanks Fail-cons….
Bill in VA
September 30th, 20114:59 pm
Baseball Buff @ 3:19….I agree with you!! Why should a dugout look like that? They play like they live and they live like slobs!!
September 30th, 20115:15 pm
phill……. Not long ago, you begged me to stop commenting on your idiotic childish ramblings, so I ignored them.
The Braves are my team and I will stick with them, through the good and the bad, and I will do so without resorting to calling the players, management, and organization trash, as you and your good buddies do.
While you are boycotting the games, why not boycot the organization all together, if they cause you so much pain.
While I might not have that high of an opinion of Fredi G. as a manager,
I know for certain that he has more knowledge and ability to be a MLB manager, than anyone on any of these AJC blogs.
September 30th, 20115:40 pm
I was just gonna pop in and tell the blog Parrish got canned (but someone beat me to it! Kudos sir!!)
The interesting thing is this, Fredi said they were all returning, and it looks like Frank Wren thought differently. I wonder if there’s any chance Fredi resigns because he’s mad about having a coach fired from out from under him after his prior statement? I doubt we are that lucky. I would love to have Tito as our manager, bringing some modern approach to the offensive game into play for a very old fashioned team.
September 30th, 20115:42 pm
All you ranting about Constanze and Heyward. LOOK THIS UP! The 2 weeks prior to Constanzas return to the bench he was hitting under .200 with an OPS (slg+ obp) of under .400. Since Heyward returned to the starting lineup he was hitting .28- with an OPS of .830…. so , IMO , it looks like the proper move.
September 30th, 20116:01 pm
FIRE THE WHOLE COACHING STAFF!!! KEEP IT COMING MR GM!!!!
September 30th, 20116:02 pm
Larry @9:50am……….Do you really believe all of the that stuff, that you wrote about yourself?
HAHA, that is really funny.
Boston manager fired!
September 30th, 20116:07 pm
Compare the Braves players to the Hawks and Falcons..
They look couch potatoes drinking fat guys…lol
September 30th, 20116:15 pm
Baseball I love, everyone can pick until next season, but is that going to benefit. These young guys that keep coming up does it for me, from the time I coached my own son the most enjoyment came from watch young people develop. Winning is great don’t get me wrong, but if you let winning and losing determine the satisfaction you get out of this or UGA football then you will always be disappointed. 2 teams play 1 loses and 1 wins, that’s the way it is. By the way if the NFL is going to penalize players for grinding their shoulders into a runner to stop him then it’s time to put flags on their hips and dresses for unis, God save the queen.
September 30th, 20116:25 pm
Having been a Braves fan since 1953, I’ll continue to do so. I’m stupid that way. But what a joy it is to follow a team with heart and a manager with a brain. Joe Madden starts a pitcher with 10 innings of major league experience. Would either of the last two jokers the Braves had do such a thing? Hell no!! Well I heard Parrish is gone, one step in the right direction. More are needed. Go Rays!!
September 30th, 20116:31 pm
Good stuff, Randall.
Rays 6 Rangers 0

Bernard – “dollar store mentality”? Really? Braves payroll is very much in line with where they stand in the market, for the most part. More importantly, every business has to make business decisions, and a corporation can’t gamble another $30M in additional salary for what would amount statistically to about 6 more wins. This year six more wins makes the playoffs – but even a WS victory would not result in a break-even year, even if you add next year’s expected attendance increases. The ugly reality for small market teams is that the only model for success is to build with youth, knowing that with success, your assets will go to higher bidders. (Look at the Orioles’ payroll in the years immediately following the Cal Ripken’s era – $100M+, and that was back in the day. They lost a ton of money. The year that the Marlins won their first WS (1997) their ownner W.Huzienga lost $30M – that was his money, and it was real money.) Your comment is both emotional and irrational. Sorry.
September 30th, 20117:44 pm
Correction: I understand the Braves are not a “small market” team, they are mid-market, but the analysis is still sound. I know there are exceptions – St.Louis comes to mind, and, look at Milwaukee this year, but the Brewers last playoff game was in 1982.
September 30th, 20119:02 pm
We are stuck with Lowe, so put him in the bullpen, or in AA.
Had he been in AA, he wouldn’t have gotten arrested.
October 1st, 201111:13 am
nidkb, you’re wrong on Constanza.
He never started two games in a row again after going hitless two games in a row.
People that don’t understand him being out of the lineup and it killing the Braves
have not been watching EVERY game.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
