Sutton to Wilson to Majia for the DP.
March 3rd, 20122:49 pm
If Martinez pitches well like that,I might change my mind on him?Good start for him.
Sure does sound like a lot of Tigers fans are there.
lol….now the defense is tanking.
March 3rd, 20122:52 pm
Constanza (replacing Bourn) makes the catch in CF to retire the side.
abeewright: But Sutton made a real nice play to get to it, and Freeman would’ve made the catch. Mejia not much defensively.
March 3rd, 20122:54 pm
hours sound rough but most of us have had jobs/hours we didn’t like before that is just part of it…
Let’s get a hit
Sutton hits he needs to make this team.
heck when I was 19 those were my hours anyway LOL
Mixxo- Is the same every year. You know what he going to say most of the time. Same old Mixxo……
March 3rd, 20122:55 pm
come on folks I need positive blog wishes for little tiger to go to sleep (so I can go flying)
March 3rd, 20122:57 pm
well here is ward…per murph that means we wont see samantha for a while now
looking at the box score, I see that three of the regulars got BB, so this isn’t as bad as all that for the first day of ST.
Tiger- look for postive things in todays game,like the pitching.It did live up to hit.
March 3rd, 20122:59 pm
If the team is suckin’………I’m not afraid to tell you so.
Deal with it or give me something to cheer about.
Yes I agree with you Tiger, The money is good so I am going to stay with it , at least until school starts. How did you know how old I was?
ab/ward come on stop looking for the silver linning show me some hard statistics. How many teams that were no hit in the sprint training season opener went on to win the world series.
you guys and your fantasy worlds
Well, Mejia ALMOST got a HR.
Mixxo-We don’t need your two senses…….
March 3rd, 20123:00 pm
no hitter to start the season, shame we are on the wrong end of it
oh hell ward & samantha posts back to back either ward is getting slick or murph’s theory is toast
Uggla had a would be hit taken down by the wind too.
Hitless through 7. No chances for pastor.
If the very wind be against us what can be for us
samantha – i believe you mentioned it on the blog the last couple of days…
March 3rd, 20123:01 pm
52 – nice
What I look for is fielding,and Pitching. The game is not a blow out,so that is a good sign for things to come.
When will you people who love that loser Heyward that…
HEYWARD SUCKS. Get Rid of him, please!!!!!
Skip & Pete Fan
Should we be concerned about the fact that the Tiger pitchers are seeing their first live game action and this is the result?
DOB … thanks for the clarification on the Sutton play. I’m not watching, just listening. so, there’s no way to know if Sutton’s throw was bad or if the 1B was not ready for prime time.
Sounds like Sutton might have a shot at a bench job.
March 3rd, 20123:02 pm
On a brighter note Yanks are bombing the Filthies
Shouldn’t always believe Murph…….
is VJ not feeling well or working? confused by the no play by play
March 3rd, 20123:03 pm
Already tired of the slogans this is going to be a season to remember and this is why we chop. These are ads played on the radio feed.
Why is Don Sutton not broadcasting with Jim today?
March 3rd, 20123:04 pm
ChrisfromSac, I don’t see anyone else hitting. Why single out Heyward?
Yea I did. By the way, Hello Ward You can tell these that doubters that I am still here.
March 3rd, 20123:05 pm
Talk later tonight,and be cool. Always look for positives in the game for Spring Training. That’s what I always do. Peace My Friends…….
brava – cause he sucks didn’t you read his post
March 3rd, 20123:06 pm
everybody else just had a bad day but heyward sucks
Yeah, tiger, same crap from last season.
Samantha- Keep hanging in there. The people are pretty cool here on the blog. Just go with flow.You seem cool. Peace Out!!!!!”Go!!!!!Braves!!!!!.
March 3rd, 20123:07 pm
I mean from Chris, tiger, not Heyward.
I think we’ll hit tomorrow but, won’t score until mid-spring.
did you do much skiing when you lived in montana?
Mejia flied out to front edge of left-center warning track to end Braves’ 7th, after Josh Wilson GIDP.
Cordier to pitch 8th. Braves no hits through 7….
Former Braves OF “Mighty” Matt Young now hitting for the Tigers in 8th. Leyland wanted to make sure he played against Bravos.
they all sux
March 3rd, 20123:08 pm
Argenias Diaz sounds like “our heinous Diaz.”
Thanks for the work DOB
March 3rd, 20123:09 pm
Nice leaping catch by Constanza, caught it before it could sail over his head. Robbed Matt Young.
lol I figured
March 3rd, 20123:10 pm
War of the vertically challenged, DOB.
last spring Don Sutton got lost coming back from a Shriners dinner. Maybe he went back.
March 3rd, 20123:11 pm
brava – you saying heyward woulda caught it off the shoulder LOL
Hearing Murphy on the radio feed is awesome. Ha he thought the Braves got a new 30ft chickfila cow. Powell quickly told him that we have had it.
Tiger, If you are talking to me, the answer is absolutely. Every chance I got.
not hard to have two browsers open at the same time
so you got explorer and google chrome same time
March 3rd, 20123:12 pm
Wow, what a pathetic, embarrassing display by the Braves. Gonna be a long season. Looks like my 90 loss season prediction is highly plausible.
Cordier is not having a good outing.
March 3rd, 20123:13 pm
1B to pitcher to end the inning.
March 3rd, 20123:14 pm
sam (you mind if I shorten it?) absolutely talking to you..I go out west to go skiing every year..wish I could do it for more than a week – maybe one day
That was an awkward exchange between Powell and Murphy.
March 3rd, 20123:15 pm
come on little tiger sleep already…
March 3rd, 20123:16 pm
Look a hit…
Yeah! We got a hit!
Anyone no when the last Spring Training No-Hitter was?
Parraz leadoff single in 8th is first Braves hit
I asked a couple of days ago but tomorrow I will be in Tampa and I am going to take in a Yankees vs Phillies game. Any tips on getting autographs etc.
March 3rd, 20123:17 pm
Give that kid a contract!!!!!!!!
WOW Trade Heyward give a chance to Parraz
Paraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaz!! 1st hit of 2012
March 3rd, 20123:18 pm
aaaaand a DP.
Looks like it may have been March of ‘09. The Marlins no-hit the Tigers.
well we got one of our starting OFers for the season now
Double Play Diaz
Yes, Tiger you may shorten to Sam or my nickname of Sissy. Why dont you come and ski on big mountain sometime. It is one of the best in the world.
March 3rd, 20123:19 pm
I wonder what McFann thinks of AL baseball??? (Nolie)
I think he’s thinking “Hmmm.. The Yanks traded their best catching prospect and are patching it up behind the dish this year. I bet they’d like to solidify that spot for the future. And batting lefty in that right field ban box behind the likes of A-Rod, Tex and Cano sure might be fun. Oh yeah- they pay pretty well up there in the Bronx too!”
Something like that.
bravofan @ 3:16 What exactly does the “etc.” stand for? Bear hugs? Eskimo kisses? Fist bumps? Phone numbers?
March 3rd, 20123:20 pm
where are all these Montana folks coming from….. ???
March 3rd, 20123:21 pm
Spruill’s got 9th for Braves
March 3rd, 20123:22 pm
its a little more difficult to get to montanta but it is on the list…I’ve gotten stuck on breckenridge just b/c its so easy to get there. And trust me traveling with a 4 year old easy is important.
Bayou Brave : sounds good to me!
Skip & Pete Fan: Don Sutton is getting his hair permed today, hence we get Dale Murphy, which is always a good thing.
That was McFann not McCann Anders. McFann is our resident Big Mac obsessor and I was funnin’ her
But you are likely right about what McCann is thinking
March 3rd, 20123:24 pm
Nolie- Got it. I know McFann but didn’t see it right in your post. My bad.
March 3rd, 20123:25 pm
No, McCann is not worth this kind of money to the Braves…not player is worth 1/5 of you payroll.
March 3rd, 20123:29 pm
Skip & Pete Fan, what was said b/w Powell and Murph that sounded awkward? I’ve been listening to the whole game, and I didn’t notice anything. Btw, Murph sounds pretty good, but I’m looking forward to having Don back.
I completely understand, but if you do get to you will not believe the most beautiful country you have ever seen. Trust me, I did not want to leave, but had some issues that I had to.
March 3rd, 20123:31 pm
posse on your trail??
March 3rd, 20123:33 pm
Just a little embarrassed for Murph not knowing about the Chick-fil-A cow. He thought it was something new for 2012. Nothing major.
Well, clearly, the season is over.
March 3rd, 20123:34 pm
Nolie, In a way they were.
OWNED by the Detroit Tigers.
Good start boys!
obviously Brava, we should start planning for next year’s free agents and trades already
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
