Thanks for the new Blog, Ms. Rogers!
CONGRATS to A-Gon and his wife!! Guess that homer he hit last night was for the baby…
April 14th, 20123:05 pm
Shaun Marcum’s mugshot is great…
April 14th, 20123:06 pm
I so want to buy a Medlen jersey in the new cream color…either that or JV
April 14th, 20123:07 pm
Hmm…yeah, that’s a tough choice…
April 14th, 20123:08 pm
do they have O’Ventbrel shirts?
April 14th, 20123:10 pm
but I’m afraid I’ve got a jinx going on – I’ve gotten 3 jerseys/shirts…
my oldest got a diaz jersey at the start of the season he tore up his knee
little one got a medlen shirt the year he needed TJ and
I got a chipper jersey the christmas prior to his latest ACL
April 14th, 20123:11 pm
No doubt the starters need to go longer. After seven games, bullpen innings are pretty close to accounting for three of the seven so far.
April 14th, 20123:12 pm
damn, y’all are a regular Typhoid Mary group aintcha?
nolie – no but you can customize anything only issue is you can only use 2 numbers…so you could do o’ventbrel with 12 for the year.
But I wouldn’t want that b/c eric seems to be a bit of a d-bag
April 14th, 20123:14 pm
Tiger please go with the Durbin jersey
Just looking at the Gwinnett boxscore from last night, it showed that Joey T has already made 5 errors there this season…has he really made that many already, or is that a misprint?
April 14th, 20123:15 pm
was just kidding, it would prolly get dated too quickly considering the cost anyway
DON’T you DARE buy a Meds jersey and jinx him!!! I would HUNT YOU DOWN…
now that I think about it maybe I should get an eric shirt
April 14th, 20123:16 pm
tonights line on Minor,4 ip 7 er 6 walks! Braves lose!
b-52…I think he will let himself out the door so I don’t feel the need to spend my money helping it along
April 14th, 20123:18 pm
how about this…I’ll open a paypal account with the top 5 players/coaches we want gone and folks from the blog can donate…first to get the amount for a jersey I’ll get it and the rest of the funds I’ll donate to the Human Fund?
my thought for the day..
I love college football, almost as much as baseball..
but Baseball is, and always will be, America’s pastime..
Bank on it!!!
April 14th, 20123:20 pm
and Fredi ,OMG! what a horrific manager
Phillippe Du Brave
April 14th, 20123:21 pm
Ohhh! I just can’t wait to see that fine ass of Uggla’s in the new uniform. SWAK
Make Veer happy, tiger get a JJ jersey.
April 14th, 20123:22 pm
despite what you might have read here, the scouting reports portray him as a rather poor third baseman
April 14th, 20123:23 pm
That sounds like a plan The bravos siberian “tiger” trap
so I tried three times to post it and now all of a sudden it shows up twice. stoopid damn site…..
April 14th, 20123:24 pm
Good read, Carroll. Thanks
oh sure, blame technology…
April 14th, 20123:25 pm
bat – hey this is all making my plan sound even better
April 14th, 20123:27 pm
if thereis enough interest I can take donations and any of the jerseys get purchased and do the dontation at the end of the year…if the WLBB puts their money up I’ll have enough to wear a different jersey to every game in even the longest homestand
April 14th, 20123:31 pm
I got a JJ jersey-shirt last year and like, that very same day he went on the DL…
Just popped in to say hello to everyone
April 14th, 20123:33 pm
haven’t seen everyone post lately…wonder what happened to him
April 14th, 20123:34 pm
nolie – who is ranked as a poor 3rd baseman? don’t want to lose the baseball discussion in here
April 14th, 20123:36 pm
Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died
Everybody talking to their pockets
Everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a long stem rose
Everybody knows that you love me baby
Everybody knows that you really do
Everybody knows that you’ve been faithful
Ah give or take a night or two
Everybody knows you’ve been discreet
But there were so many people you just had to meet
Without your clothes
And everybody knows
Everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes
And everybody knows that it’s now or never
Everybody knows that it’s me or you
And everybody knows that you live forever
Ah when you’ve done a line or two
Everybody knows the deal is rotten
Old Black Joe’s still pickin’ cotton
For your ribbons and bows
And everybody knows
And everybody knows that the Plague is coming
Everybody knows that it’s moving fast
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman
Are just a shining artifact of the past
Everybody knows the scene is dead
But there’s gonna be a meter on your bed
That will disclose
What everybody knows
And everybody knows that you’re in trouble
Everybody knows what you’ve been through
From the bloody cross on top of Calvary
To the beach of Malibu
Everybody knows it’s coming apart
Take one last look at this Sacred Heart
Before it blows
And everybody knows
Oh everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes
April 14th, 20123:37 pm
Joey T, tiger
April 14th, 20123:40 pm
someone asked earlier if the 5 errors at Gwinnett were correct
April 14th, 20123:41 pm
ahhh hate to hear that…time for snuggle time..
April 14th, 20123:50 pm
Nice poetry nolie Thanks.
April 14th, 20123:51 pm
Saw Leonard in the Atl that was a good show
Orange Brave f/k/a Billy Jack's BBQt
good read; thanks.
April 14th, 20123:55 pm
So its just another example of some people overvaluing some of our prospects?
April 14th, 20123:57 pm
arghhh i hate long posts…so annoying
Chipper is in his usual spot tonight (out of the lineup) with Juan Francisco at 3rd. Wouldn’t we be better off if some lucky fan got chosen to play the hot corner?
April 14th, 20124:06 pm
we got a lineup yet?? like to see FF in that 3
Hi katherine Glad to see another lady on her
April 14th, 20124:07 pm
#Braves lineup: 1. Bourn CF 2. Prado LF, 3. Freeman 1B, 4. McCann C, 5. Uggla 2B, 6. Heyward RF, 7. Francisco 3B, 8. Pastornicky SS 9 MinorP
April 14th, 20124:08 pm
April 14th, 20124:09 pm
Fatz Francisco gets another chance in front of the home fans this time.Maybe he will have a good night and he won’t have any ground balls hit his way.
‘teen ‘teen the yo-yo.
where have you gone chipper jones dimaggio
April 14th, 20124:10 pm
Old ones are fairly close to the ones since ‘91 and that’s a good thing.
more day games please
April 14th, 20124:14 pm
Anybody eat that $8 slice of Brickhouse pizza last night?
That slice better be the size of a whole large.
April 14th, 20124:15 pm
I noticed the stolen bases thread earlier. Don’t want to wade into a stats war, but does anyone know who the braves all time leader is? (post WWII.)
April 14th, 20124:20 pm
Any hope to think Minor can at least pitch 6 innings.
April 14th, 20124:22 pm
Herman Long of the Boston bean eaters all time steals leader
April 14th, 20124:24 pm
April 14th, 20124:25 pm
I could read that around cocktail hour nolie. Still before noon here tho
April 14th, 20124:29 pm
And those arms.. dreamy!
April 14th, 20124:30 pm
Correctimundo nolie. I gottA tip my hat
April 14th, 20124:32 pm
April 14th, 20124:33 pm
You lookin for another tip of the hat?
April 14th, 20124:35 pm
nah, just tryin’ out upside down vs backwards to see which i like best
I'm Popeye, I am, I am
April 14th, 20124:36 pm
April 14th, 20124:37 pm
I was foolin’ around with it and posted the second one without seeing that you had responded
April 14th, 20124:38 pm
Nolie you still afraid of me. If so I dont no why? Im sweet and lovable.
April 14th, 20124:40 pm
April 14th, 20124:41 pm
Hello everyone! Just incase should the Braves consider Oswalt. A solid 7innings guy, and can save the arms of the bull-pen? Just wondering?
id guess the road runner ralph garr
April 14th, 20124:42 pm
It looks like Ron Gant, Lonnie Smith and Otis Nixon had more but not all for Braves next comes Ralph Garr
If Francisco doesn’t have a decent/competent night, I worry about the crowd eating him up and ruining him in the long term. But then, I worry a lot…
April 14th, 20124:43 pm
On long post we could always post Shauns……His post could be movie scripts…….little humor.
i got a crick in my neck reading that nolie. good article Carrol
oswalts washed up
April 14th, 20124:45 pm
Just curious. What kind of money is Oswalt seeking?
April 14th, 20124:46 pm
The only reason to have Oswalt, would be for long innings, and if you could get him cheap?
My first guess was garr.
April 14th, 20124:47 pm
I can make you relax and have a good time Just try me Nolie
My view is Braves don’t have a starter that can go past 5 innings, so far, and Oswalt wouldn’t be a bad idea for a vetran pitcher.
April 14th, 20124:48 pm
She likes yer pomes nolie. Favor her with more rhymes.
April 14th, 20124:50 pm
DOB- Would Oswalt be a good investment,or a bad one? Just would like your opinion….
I would Guess that Chipper is near the top 10 since WW2
April 14th, 20124:51 pm
Remember nolie, if a tree falls in her, er the, forest, and there’s no one present to hear it, it doesn’t make a sound.
April 14th, 20124:52 pm
Oswalt has had back issues and would cost more than the Braves are willing to spend. Not happening.
Gimpah & McError
April 14th, 20124:55 pm
How many stolen bases does McError give up tonight? Another 3?
Murph actually has more than chipper. And chipper ahead of andruw. That list, however, is a little thin as far as the numbers go.
i is too young and sweet and innocent to have any idea what y’all are goin’ on about…..
April 14th, 20124:56 pm
Oswalt would probably need a minimum of 2 months to get into playing shape. Not worth it
yeah I figgered Murph for more along with Furball
April 14th, 20124:57 pm
Nolie really loves me he just wont admit it. You want to try me Powderfinger
Secret Service, scandle now….. Amazing……What’s this world coming too?
He’s there too. Wonder about that other great jones, Mack?
Brett Butler had almost as much as Nixon but all these guys played for so many teams I can’t find a list of braves only years
April 14th, 20124:59 pm
I love everybody..well maybe not Mitchell,Millsap,Robert,Lou/Earl,Dentz and Jeff321
April 14th, 20125:00 pm
I don’t love everyone. I really don’t even like that many people.
Oswalt is interesting suggestion. Isnt his hometown or home close to GA?
Mayb Jurrjens gets traded for a bat or well anything and atlanta can sign Oswalt cheap
Cab- Since Oswalt owned the Braves, just thought of his innings when healthy. Still would be interesting on who will pick him up. It would aslo be nice not to see him pitch against the Braves.
April 14th, 20125:01 pm
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
