I might as well be up donig what I need to do at this point. Unless we can have some late inning magic, I’m just going to do that. I cannot take a 2nd loss – my Mets-loving customer will not leave me alone on Monday about it.
Are you people seriously getting this pissed off over the 2nd game of the season? I could understand this if it were the last game of the season and we were fighting for our playoff hopes, but its a new season, only 2 games in. Give a rest or you are going to have a stroke midway through the season. You guys seriously need to pace yourself.
Thanks Liberty Media
“I am done watching this team. Two words for their play. Boring and uninspired. At least, I will have plenty of free time to enjoy my tennis game!”
Damn Son…As Much As I rip the team…I don’t quit watching after a game and a half, lol
Breaking ball for a strike??? JJ perhaps trying a pitch that is not straight might be a different look

13 innings now with ZERO runs!
Will Spring Training don’t count but it damn sure does carry over to the regular season.
all of you people who whine and complain….the braves are what they are…might as well try to enjoy the season and stop making other people miserable with your constant ***ching and moaning…..lighten up geez

“I hate this team…..I really do.”
lol, This is getting crazy
hey katherine, I wouldn’t ask too many out of state braves fans to get another team. If atlanta area fans were relied upon to fill turner field solely by themselves they’d draw about 34 fans.
only time they are happy Katherine
Thanks Liberty Media

Did you watch last season too? It’s not just 1 and 1/2 games. It HAS been OVER two years in the making. THEY ARE BORING.
whats sad is we dont even have great pitching. Our pitchers played above their heads most of last season. marginal pitching and no hitting equals a BADDD season.
Mets have a chance to really blow this game open. Jurrjens will be lucky to get threw 5 innings today.
and yes. he sould get another team..lol didn’t see the hate this team comment…hah nevermind katherine
April 7th, 20122:32 pm
@ O.J. It’s not just the start of the season. It’s that we’re seeing the SAME crap that we saw when the Braves imploded at the end of LAST season. It’s one big continuous thing. Same team, same lineup, same issues.
If you find them boring and unwatchable- don’t watch! Problem solved.
Katherine…you’re right, they are what they are. Unfortunately, what they are is crap. Take off the rosy colored glasses and get a clue honey. This team sucks.
I wonder how we are going to fare against a good team.
Nice to see someone else leave the bases loaded.
Should have traded Jurrjens when his value was high. Because Julio Teheran couldve done better today.
But That inning sucked! Double J will only be out there one more inning at this pace….
Do you really enjoy watching boring baseball? How can you enjoy this mess? It is awful.
Good comeback, noleee.
April 7th, 20122:33 pm
Unless a starter throws 95, being a two pitch pitcher may not be the best way to go about it
If we were gonna be THIS bad…I kinda wish we had just kept Escobar…he was…at least…good for a laugh for some bonehead play… every coupla days

Whew…just deleted the negative post I had composed and teed up.
Done! Watching College Lacrosse.

gee whiz, I didn’t know Martinez could play LF……but nice catch according to Chip Caray

Has ownership and management figured out why ticket sales are drastically down? Is it really such a mystery?
Hand for JJ. I don’t know how our picthers do it, but they do awesome work when they don’t get consistant help from their hitters.
You are And Idiot. That is all
UVA lax kicking the crap out of Carolina last 15 mins or so. Good stuff!
April 7th, 20122:35 pm
Did you watch last season? I bet JJ and Hanson are counting the days to free agency.
If the Mets only had to play the Braves they would be playoff caliber.
The Braves are pressing and Fredi has no answers or reinforcements. Bad cocktail.
Again once we hit May 15th we will know if its not in the cards or just a slow start.
Sadly my money is on pink slips being handed out to mgt and trading Bourne and a few others at the deadline.
Braves have gone 23 innings without a run dating back to third inning of 13-inning loss in season finale.
Did you watch last season too? It’s not just 1 and 1/2 games. It HAS been OVER two years in the making. THEY ARE BORING.”
Yes I did Watch Last season…Got so P’d off at the Team and a few cats on here which resulted in a 10 week Bozoing…And Yes They are Boring and have been the last 2 months dating back to last year…but I’m not gonna drop them like a bad habit….

We are making Dickey look like Halladay…

Im not wearing rose colored glasses “honey” . I just prefer to wait more than one and a half games into the season to declare them dead. As far as braves games goes…you are full of crap. I go to a lot of games each season and they are always well attended. They will be perfectly fine if you start following another team.
Pastroniki takes three balls up. Just to wait for the knuckleball down to hit a fungo to short.
Fire Fredi !!!!!!!!!

This team REALLY does suck, don’t they?
The A Bomb
Thanks DOB for confirming my math.
WHOOPS: Almost 24 now.
watch out when they finally do score though, prolly score two runs in the same game….
another inning and no runs or threat.
Yeh this is getting so hard to watch….
II would have pitched hit for JJ because he is about to get lit up
I feel your pain. That’s why I had to turn the channel. It is VERY difficult to watch the once great team or very good team run into the ground. Hang in there buddy. Enjoy your weekend!
April 7th, 20122:39 pm
DOB just woke up. Go back to sleep, man. No need to pay attention to this.
Why was fredi not all over the ump at 1st on Rev play…he was out. BC would have got thrown out.
Fake bravesgrl4life – you have been reported to the blog administrator. Not just to remove your comment but to block your IP address. LEAVE ME THE HELL ALONE YOU JACKASS!
oh oh a walk. a runner on base. wow. what do we do? never seen this before.
Good day at the plate for Bourn
I have to add. Is it me or are Joe Simpson and Chip Carey really lame? They need to pull their head out of the Melts arse.
“Losing is a disease like syphilis or the bubonic plague, but ah curable……” About time for that carny hypnotise to visit the Braves locker room.
Where is the Roy Hobbs character on this team….hmmm don’t seem to think they have one.
April 7th, 20122:40 pm
thought you were gonna go play tennis??
well, he’s gonna have to try to steal for us to have a shot it appears
Katherine…I’m not the one who made the attendance comment, but if anyone is full of it, it’s you. The TED is usually half empty unless it’s a holiday or a weekend. Let’s not pretend Atlanta is some great sports town.
April 7th, 20122:41 pm
“Lo and behold… another high pitch count for a Braves starter. Won’t see the 7th. Man, it gets old”.
Yeah…It does and furthermore it taxes the bullpen…But our pitchers not going deep into games when they give up 1-2 runs is on the AWFense! Not the starting pitcher
3 balks away from scoring here….
So DOB do u think if the Braves are playing this bad that they will go over 2.25 mil in attendance. If they are this boring and pathetic they wont get 2 million
I don’t think it’s too early to pass judgement.Last place.
WHAT THE HELL?
I was wrong, Tomahawkin.
I effin love Martin Prado….
Again, it is not just two games. It has been this way for almost TWO years. I can understand the frustration. Frank Wren has done NOTHING to address their lack of offense.
We’re back baby !!!!…Start printin’ those World Series Tickets !!!!!
April 7th, 20122:42 pm
oh yea two run homer.
Well maybe they might get 2.25 mil if Prado hits HRs
PRADO! Our first run.
oh my God. A homer. I will be quiet now.
McFann :Ô: :Ô:
Enter your comments hereMarteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen!
Great job, Prado!
We scored runs….we scored runs!!!! Holy crap we scored runs!!!!!
Wake up, Dave!

Screw all that “Father’s Day,” “Legends Game” crap.

Where’s the math major now?
Prado homers with 2-out in Braves 5th, just inside LF foul pole, snaps 23-inning scoreless streak dating to last season, Dan Uggla’s 2-run homer off Cole Hamels in third inning of 13-inning season finale.
Braves were just waiting for VJ to leave for work…
Its over!!!!! Its over!!!! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!
April 7th, 20122:43 pm
No stopping us now! World Series bound! woo hoo!
I still think JJ is about to get lit up though. The Mets have figured him out.
Marteeeeeeeen ver nice! Runs, I must be dreaming
Great to see the Braves score a couple of runs there. That is almost like a barrage of runs.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
