You can’t be that blinded. These guys have the same problems as last year. Nothing changed on the roster and nothing changed in their heads. Their mentality is simply sapped at this point.
glad bourn was there…
April 7th, 20123:53 pm
blinded by what?
Holy hell – a 1-2-3 inning!
JHey is day dreaming about Beyonce and Jay-Z out there.
It’s The End Off The World,and they know it…..LOL
Silver linning: Venters will be well rested this year. I don’t think that we are going to be leading too many game this year.
the Braves “heart of the order” has none!!!
“Love the bashers of the bashers. LOL … like we’re supposed to all be cheery and “we’ll get ‘em tomorrow”. Please. Those bats are cursed. And we’re destined as Braves fans to be put through this.”
LMAO, Its Good to see that you are not putting up with that Crap no more neither?
I get all the National games here. Pretty exciting team to watch.
Why do do braves guys seem heavy.
Freddy , Chipper, Hanson, on and on. They not only play like shyt but look it

LAG- I epxect a long season with the children…..
Not sure that it is too early to worry, the offense is bad, and we now have two new give it up boys in the bullpen.
@VaBravesFan – I think my 11 year old could hit Marmol right now so I don’t think that’s a fair comparison just kidding, your point is very well taken.
Ward – if they haven’t gone in the tank at the end of last year. I think the attitude would be different. Given last year and the start to this year. It is VERY hard to get excited.
3 power bats coming to the plate, last chance.

Basically what Wren and the Braves asked of their pitching staff over the winter was to repeat their 2011 in the upcoing year if you want to be a part of a playoff team. Not asking for THAT much.
Three (3) home run in a row?….
We should save all the Dooms Dayers post,and post them at the end of the season.It would be comedy to read it all.
April 7th, 20123:56 pm
Frank Francisco 1st save chance of the season, let’s spoil it!
I likes me some Freddie Freeman.
We Needed that Last at-bat Fab 5 Freddie!
Dr. John Zoydberg
How will they squander this leadoff runner? This is so exciting…
Oh wow a hit count to…..
That is interesting. I thought it was common knowledge that the Braves have a terrible infield defense. Freeman’s hands are incredible, but him and Uggla on the right side of the infield are a problem with their lack of range.
“We should save all the Dooms Dayers post,and post them at the end of the season.It would be comedy to read it all.”
Just like last season.
My prediction is halfway right!!!!! Homerun for Heyward?
Only 2 hits today for the slumping Fab 5 freddie
COME ON BRAVES!!!!
The A Bomb

Frustration is over talent underperforming. If talent sucked, 100-loss season would be acceptable.
This team needs someone NOW to change the culture. THIS reminds me of Eddie Haas.
Glad to see that FW off season no acquisitions are producing dividends right away.
Frisco vs Frisco
April 7th, 20123:58 pm
VaBravesFan if that happens, I will kiss you the first time we meet up! You got the first part already.
We had some good swings today, all we needed was a couple bloop singles, have to tip your cap to Dicky, we’ll get em tomorrow.
Braves offense looks a lot different when they are not facing both the Astros and Mets AA teams
Ward -LAG- I epxect a long season with the children…..
You and me both. I think my own child requires less patience. And she can’t walk yet.
No it wouldn’t ,they just want to complain,and they will.They wouldn’t know what to do if the Braves started winning?It’s early like DOB says……
Heyward sucks. Bust!
Well, sorry VaBraves fan, no kiss for you.
perfect time for a Heyward K, figures.
When you look back and see the catcher standing up…dont swing
So just because I am not a negative person, it’s blind homerism? I chose to be positive. I also chose not to get angry over a baseball game (especially 2 games into the season). Sorry if that bothers you, but it’s who I am and I am not going to change.
April 7th, 20123:59 pm
still cant hit low and away
Our Francisco looks a lot better than their Francisco.
Lag-That’s pretty funny…..
Remember when Heyward used to be able to hit fastballs that were out over the plate?
Heyward still sucks. Sad day.
I love Jason’s new swing don’t you?
Francisco wasn’t on Braves last year…he might actually be trying to get Freddie in.
Come On Melky!
April 7th, 20124:00 pm
Heyward folds when the stakes are up
I thought the Mets were the worst team, but i was wrong. It’s the POS Braves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Heyward and Francisco have gotten some pitches to hit and they couldn’t square them up.
My point is long season,and Baseball should be fun no matter what happens…..
April 7th, 20124:01 pm
Another fat ass.
Come On SKE!!!
Now we bring in our best PH
thank god Pastornicky is sitting down LOL
How many games, until everyone on the blog is worried?
Its bad when you have the two most overrated young players in the game as part of your middle of the lineup.
That is right, Heyward and Freeman are the two most overrated young players in the game. Underachievers.
Put Murph on suicide alert. Diaz in the game with the game on the line.
Diaz is our final hope. Just beautiful
Braves need Bob and Jillian.
April 7th, 20124:02 pm
here is the Barves problem…The BENCH
We still have life.
Come On Matty-D
We Need an Alley Ball to The Wall!
Dugout excited over a single. Pathetic
At this pace the Braves will score 162 runs this year. I hope the SP are ready, they need to throw 160 shutouts. It could happen.
We still have life. Okay, MattE, be my hero here
Why no Henske
Is this a long, slow, painful death? Or a come from behind win?
Lol, what a bench we have.
All have a good one! Remeber it’s April,and enjoy Baseball,and life……Peace my friends……”Go!!!!!Braves!!!!!”
Not sure what Freddie Freeman is supposed to do that he has not done…
Hinske keeps us alive, 2 of the slowest players in MLB history on the bases at the same time.
Prepare yourselves for more “they were better than us” “we didn’t capital on our opportunities” BS. Braves management thinks the fans will stick around, when its obvious to us that they don’t care. I don’t care much either at this point. Wren’s love affair with “top prospects” is getting annoying too. Last time i checked Frank, prospects don’t win championships.
Big Apple my $$%%%^^&####
April 7th, 20124:03 pm
Come On Matty-D!
last strike……bet Diaz strikes out
April 7th, 20124:04 pm
The fastball looks fat. But we’ve got some guys who just can’t hit.
2nd big situation for Diaz this season in 2 games…..
I said it this morning that everything on paper says the Braves win this game today against Dickie. So I predicted the Braves would lose it. I also said the Braves wouldn’t win a game against the Mets this series. Not hating, just predicting. But it doesn’t matter at all. It only 3 games at the start of the season and those games won’t come back to haunt the Braves. Is that the way it goes?
FIRE FREDDI THE GUY IS A LOSER
What A Gawd Damn Joke!
yeap he did
and there it is….
About to be swept by one of the worst teams in the NL. Can’t wait for the new excuses.
Lost again to the Mets! Our vaunted pitching gave up a ton of hits. Our lousy offense, was lousy again as usual.
Great! Just Great!
……….and the Great Choke continues.
7 Gawd Damn Hits off a Junkballer…WTF
Power arm closes out the Braves.
7 loses in a row. Nightmare continues F U braves
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
