DURBIN HAS TO GO!!!!
April 15th, 201210:47 pm
Now I have made everybody upset, I was just trying to be friendly. He did ask.
April 15th, 201210:48 pm
JJ is another Lowe, if he continues to pitch the way he has we may have to pay his salary to get rid of him, however I think he will start to pitch better but his knee won’t hold up.
April 15th, 201210:49 pm
Surprised he didn’t already know, I figured most everyone knew that.
As to those who say Durbin needs to go, well he was in the race for late inning relief with the Nationals, so he did look good in Spring Training.
April 15th, 201210:51 pm
IF everyone wants me to leave please tell me. I am just trying to be honest and friendly. If you dont mind my job then everything will be IK
April 15th, 2012
I’m sorry John, I thought it was about winning a pennant!
April 15th, 201210:52 pm
This is a free country Samantha. I bite my tongue on the politics but it is still free right now. Stay enjoy and pull for the Bravos is the most important thing
April 15th, 201210:53 pm
Samantha, did u read my 10:45 comment. u are welcome to stay like everyone. Its happy hour before work tomorrow.
April 15th, 201210:55 pm
Buster, You are right it is about a pennant. But finances and future is a GMs job to forecast. Like it or not as a fan, and by the way I don’t, it is a factor in determining call ups and when they are called up. Part of life.
OPEN YOUR EYES
I JUST READ EVERYBODY’S COMMENTS, LOL YALL CRAZY!!!!!! ESPECIALLY U SAM!!!
April 15th, 201210:56 pm
Thank you John I do love my Braves. Maybe I need to quit winking at them.
April 15th, 201210:57 pm
DAN UGGLA BETTER GET HIS HIIT TOGETHER!!!!!!
April 15th, 201210:58 pm

April 15th, 201210:59 pm
Wink after an at bat instead of before lol. They need to focus on the job at hand lol
April 15th, 201211:01 pm
Take all of Samantha’s BS with a grain of salt, or a shot of tequila.
April 15th, 201211:02 pm
tequila is too expensive in this economy a tool. bud is about the right price
April 15th, 201211:03 pm
why the caps?
April 15th, 201211:04 pm
OK I will consider that. Who does OPEN YOUR EYES think he is? He ask a question he can answer himself and nobody calls me SAm
April 15th, 201211:05 pm
Samantha could be a SAM for all we know!
April 15th, 201211:06 pm
this is the internet. some people try to act tough on here because they are weak-minded in real life. Have to have a filter of sort, I guess.
WHY DO NOT LIKE BEING CALLED SAM?? IT A NICKNAME??? SHEESH LOL!! AND TRUST ME I COULD CARE LESS IF YOU WERE CRAZY ABOUT ME
April 15th, 201211:08 pm
IF DAN UGGLA CAN CATCH FIRE WE WILL BE SCORING 4 RUNS A GAME!!!!
April 15th, 201211:10 pm
a name is a person’s birth name and some do not like it to be shortened. It is their name and it should be respected. A person only owns 2 things in the world. Their NAME and their WORD.
I ALWAYS RIGHT CAPS, JUST GO BACK TO THE FALCONS BLOGS AND HAWKS BLOGS FROM A YEAR AGO!!! EVERYBODY KNOWS I WRITE LIKE THIS, PLUS IM REALLY YELLING LOL. SO THAT COUNTS
April 15th, 201211:11 pm
Well John thanks for talking to me and giving me a chance. Seems like everyone else doesnt agree, Maybe we can meet again along the way where these doubters arent around Good Nite bye for now. The rest of them have made me mad sorry its not you John. I was just trying to have fun.
April 15th, 201211:12 pm
WELL TELL THAT TO RON ARTEST OR SHOULD I SAY………………………………………………………………………METTA WORLD PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!! (PA ANNOUNCER VOICE)
April 15th, 201211:13 pm
In that case enjoy the game tomorrow night.
April 15th, 201211:14 pm
GOODBYE SAM I AM!!!!!
Open, he went through a legal procedure to legally change his name. His name is legally Metta World Peace. Any other dumb comments?
Have funny till “The Man Comes Around” -Cash.
April 15th, 201211:17 pm
Have to work John but thanks. See ya later
April 15th, 201211:18 pm
NO I THINK ALL MY COMMENTS HAVE BEEN RATHER PLEASING TO MOST PEOPLE ON THIS BLOG EXCEPT U AND SAM!!!!
Bye, Samantha. Have a good night, see you tomorrow.
April 15th, 201211:20 pm
At least if you are working you won’t be winking at the Bravos and distracting them lol. I will merely watch the game in my den and enjoy it without all the drunken idiots screaming around me especially the NY transplants that will show up
THERES NO NEED TO GET EMOTIONAL ABOUT NICKNAMES JOHN!!! IM SURE YOU’VE HAD PLENTY IN UR DAY EHHH!!!!
April 15th, 201211:22 pm
I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE BRAVES TO EXTRACT THEIR REVENGE AGAINST THOSE NEW YORK MUTTS!!!!
I don’t care what Ron Artest changed his name to. It is a silly name and doesn’t even really serve any wholistic purpose. World B. Free’s decision to modify his first name (the middle initial and last name of Free was his given family name) actually was a positive political statement. The reasons for Artest to do this is a lot fuzzier! Also, Free never attacked fans in the stands like Artest did. So, there are two reasons to respect Free that I cannot apply to Artest.
BTW: great win today for the Braves. 5-4 is a whole lot better than I thought was possible after going 0-4! The lineup was the big question mark and so far it is looking like the lineup can score runs after all.
April 15th, 201211:24 pm
OPen you are obviously not well equipped to understand the concept of a person’s name and what it means, so I will refrain from corresponding to such immature individuals. Have a pleasant evening.
April 15th, 201211:26 pm
My gosh is it fun to watch Chipper Jones play when he’s healthy.
He is an amazing hitter.
April 15th, 201211:29 pm
I DON’T UNDERSTAND YOUR ARGUMENT, OR MAYBE YOU HAVE NONE!!!! I CALLED SAMANTHA SAM BECAUSE ITS SHORT FOR SAM!!! WHICH IS A NICKNAME IN MY BOOK!!!! WE CALL CHIPPER JONES CHIPPER, BUT HIS REAL NAME IS LARRY!!!! SO I REALLY DON’T UNDERSTAND THE POINT YOU ARE TRYING TO MAKE!!!! BUT ITS ALL GOOD WE ARE ALL BRAVES FANS AND WE SHOLUD JUST STAYNICE AND POSITIVE TO EACH OTHER THROUGH THIS 5 GM WIN STREAK!!!
April 15th, 201211:30 pm
WHATS UP MAN, LONG TIME NO TYPE!!!
April 15th, 201211:42 pm
Bones can take off every other day. Who cares as long as he comes back strong like this. Give it to em Bones

People have taken my screen name again. Well all I can call you is “Wannabes”.
April 16th, 201212:11 am
What is Proctor…er….Durbin’s ERA now? Around 18.00 I think?
April 16th, 20121:18 am
Don’t know what is talked about but just got back home and know that winning is all good.
April 16th, 20121:20 am
I bet a varsity chili cheese dog that we do not get sweep by mets again.
April 16th, 20121:22 am
I just wish Sam was still here.
April 16th, 20121:24 am
Sam is a cute name for a Braves fan.
April 16th, 20121:41 am
I know Freeman will have a good year but in whatever the lineup is shouldn’t Heyward be batting before Freeman?
April 16th, 20122:40 am
Dillion Gee always seems to beat us
April 16th, 20125:26 am
The Juggernaut Rolls.
April 16th, 20126:12 am
Samantha is a dude. Samantha has gone out of his way a few times to tell everyone he’s a stripper, just to gauge reactions. Samantha probably is a sweatpants wearing truck driver. Don’t be the dolt that actually thinks you are conversing with a stripper.
April 16th, 20126:48 am
If the rumors are true then I hope we can bring Frenchy home you know what your getting a guy that hits 256 to 270 hits 20-25 hrs and 70 rbis a year. On the downside he does strike out to much and is not patient at the plate. Frenchy would solidify LF for the next several years good glove big arm better than average speed, in a nutshell he was Heyward before Heyward so you would not want to bat them back to back,they are both young and exciting and would secure the corner OF positions for years to come.
Braves fan in maine
April 16th, 20127:01 am
Tim have you heard any rumors on frenchy?? I would love to bring him back he is a good outfielder… Braves are on a roll and I hope they can keep it up… this three game series is huge
April 16th, 20127:38 am
Great weekend,who would have thought 5-and 4 after 0 and 4, NOT me…..Beat the Metropolitans
April 16th, 20128:00 am
Baseball players are the least educated of all professional sports. Do we really want to suffer through a bunch of post-game quotes?
April 16th, 20128:11 am
Hi OYE, hope all is well.

What Francoeur rumors is everyone hearing? I haven’t heard of any.
April 16th, 20128:56 am
Frank Wren is fortunate that two players are doing well and they need to be traded asap: actually three need to be traded asap:
Tommy Hanson needs to be traded before injury returns and playing time misses
Craig Heyward needs to be traded, best interest for both ATL and Heyward
Diaz needs to be traded, not good
3 Quality outfields: Constanza is at AAA currently and should be starting for big league team
SS is badly needed ( not one in the whole system )
3rd baseman needed ( AAA hope is not MLB Level, none in system even close )
Pitching: anything will help a scarce situation
The Braves have become weaker each of the past 5 years, Frank Wren should be removed
Fredi Gonzales is not a MLB level manager, ATL did Marlins a favor
April 16th, 20129:10 am
Atlanta needs Escobar the SS from Kansas City, now that would make a difference. Francouer needs to stay in the American league. Francouer cannot compete in the National east with the division Pitchers ATL will face in 2012.
April 16th, 20129:35 am
Samantha please go away. Your bogus gig is getting old.
April 16th, 20129:47 am
There are some lonely dudes out there…
I pray they make life like dolls for them soon–that can talk back, of course.
Good win, Bravos.
April 16th, 201210:26 am
GC @10:56……..That was a very humorous comment.
April 16th, 201210:37 am
719 hits on DOB blog after a 4 game losing streak.
172 hits on DOB blog after a 5 game winning streak, with 60 to 70% of those being fire Durbin(or somebody else),10 to 15% bad mouthing other players or management, and around 10% by an idiot that uses all capital letters.
Go Braves! Defeat the Muttros!
April 16th, 201210:39 am
Sorry, I meant GC @8:56am…….Still very funny stuff, the way you make it sound like you don’t have a clue, as to what you are talking about.
April 16th, 201210:40 am
Drinking BUD is like making love in a canoe, its fookin close to water
April 16th, 201210:57 am
Someone mentioned FG mismanaging the bull pen, I agree but never has there been a manager who misued the bull pen worse than Bobby Cox.
April 16th, 201211:08 am
bobby – a lot of negatives booby, never, misused, worse than
Torre was an absolute butcher with his BP
April 16th, 20121:00 pm
Samantha sent me a pic of her doing some Braves Blogging if anyones interested.
April 16th, 20122:41 pm
Hope you are having fun?
April 16th, 20122:51 pm
Everyone’s sure you are having fun Samantha, it’s attention after all.
April 16th, 20122:58 pm
Samantha – you said many times that if you weren’t wanted you’d go away. Take your tired act somewhere else.
April 16th, 20123:04 pm
Your the ones that brought it up, Dont talk about me and dont pick on me and I promise will go away. As long as you are going to have your remarks then I am going to fire back
April 16th, 20123:20 pm
Samantha – you are one sick dude. Now go away like you promised.
April 16th, 20123:24 pm
There you go again, You dont say antthing about me Than I am gone, But seems nobody would have any sick thoughts if all of you would get your minds out of the gutter and MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS.
April 16th, 20123:27 pm
Do you know their are millions of chatrooms you can go to for your purposes? If you didn’t there are. Find one and go.
April 16th, 20123:29 pm
Why where you can stibk your nose in and find out your sick thoughts
April 16th, 20123:31 pm
Leo Mazzone was in charge of about ninty pitchers during his fourteen year run. You can count on one hand his failures, most went on to sign higher contracts. The same fans who think McDowell’s 0 & 6 Record is better than Mazzone’s 14 & 0 record are the same idiots that can’t see Constanza’s talent.
April 16th, 20123:33 pm
No becuase this is a sports blog not a chatroom. And you lie – you said you’d go away if you weren’t wanted. Be a man and keep your word.
April 16th, 20123:38 pm
Somebody doent like me because they are jealous. BTW I am not a man. You keep picking on me and I am staying around. If you shut up and talk baseball I am gone, but you dont be able to do that. Because you cant MIND YOUR OWM BUSINESS
April 16th, 20123:48 pm
No since you’re a liar. I’m done with you. Outta here.
April 16th, 20124:20 pm
Here’s the way it will probably be with Durbin – sore arm (whether really is or not) and go on DL. Then he’s told – take some time off, then later do some bullpen sessions and see if you can figure out what is wrong. Then we will send you on minor league rehab – and you need to show us you have things figured out. Then a recall to Braves for one last opportunity.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
