(Dang I wish these keyboards had a SARCASM key) Youse guys has to member that yestiddy wuz only one mudder of a game. How many youse tink dat loosing jus one bummer of a game will screw up a hole seeson? WAITJUSADANGMINITE!
Or as a famous manager once said, “It matters not when you lose them, they all count the same in the end. Play each game as if it were the last game of the year”. Somebody needs to hammer that into FG’s hard head!
April 23rd, 20122:23 pm
Hey J-MAN; I agree w/ you’re assessment on the instant replay, I think it would be cool if the coach could be allowed 2 challenge flags to throw like for a play such as at 2nd base. I guarantee you the umpires would see the replay, change their call,Bourn safe at second, ain’t no tellin’ what prado would’ve done. So J-MAN, that assessment isn’t that far fetched come to think of it. RIGHT ON Big J! RIGHT ON!
April 23rd, 20122:28 pm
iTiSi, Remember we lost playoffs by 1GAME. Fire FG. NOW
April 23rd, 20122:31 pm
74bravesjersey, I agree with your assessment of replay. Remember this is Joe West crew. He doesnt like braves. So changing it wont happen.
April 23rd, 20122:42 pm
I hear ya me; & I am talking to you me; (now I’m confused) because me, I am bloggin’ to you & I didn’t want people thinkin’ I was talkin’ to myself, now how do I answere you w/o sayin’ me. Hey, I’m kiddin’, just havin a blast with ya. Truely you’re probably right, but mabey an official score keeper could overrule them if that’s possible?
April 23rd, 20122:44 pm
Hey J-Man, You Around? Pssst, J-Man?
April 23rd, 20122:47 pm
Dang…. Ya’ll bare with me, Hey, J-MAN?………
April 23rd, 20122:48 pm
LOL thats OK to have fun. We are all Brave fans here. Have all the fun you want. I would reveal my self, but I cant right now. All I will say is that I am a woman. An official scorer cannot overrule an umpire. Sorry.
April 23rd, 20122:49 pm
Hey, what is with all the negativity…..I think that Delgado pitched well, despite the slam. we still won the series on the road. Now we have to do the same against the Dodgers. It is just one game and now we all want to fire G and send D down to the minors. I am going to focus on the fact that we won the series on the road and now I hope JJ pitches well get a win today. anger among you guys. relax…
April 23rd, 20122:51 pm
JJ will not pitch well….
He will get pummeled tonight while I sleep.
Because he always does.
April 23rd, 20122:54 pm
I know you are checking back, so here it is…
it’s called “human nature”. Some folks think that complaining will get you the next close call. However, it may also cause you to NOT get the next close call. Officials/umpires/referees aren’t going to consciously take into account who complains, but it may have an impact subconsciously. It is just as likely to be negative as positive. Some folks on here have pointed out that is was Joe West’s crew. I seriously doubt that had an impact. However, if I had my choice, I would rather NOT be disliked by an umpiring crew. Q: Why would any team or player be “disliked” by an umpire? A: Too much complaining. Q: What are folks on here wanting more of? A: Complaining.
April 23rd, 20122:55 pm
Hello schmidt08, How is my favorite service man, I respectfully disagree with you. If you dont pitch idiot that cant throw a strike to a pitcher, Then we win. Release him NOW.
April 23rd, 20123:06 pm
I’m down w/that schmidt 08. Hey me, thanks for taken in humor (lol stuff) man,(I mean girl) you gotta be able to have a little since of humor to bare w/ all the crazies in this life(there’s a movie about that-hope it ain’t a true story), but I guess I’m about as crazy as they come. Don’t worry, I won’t go carry’n a rifle in my overhauls unto a baseball field during a game or somethin’. I learned to laugh with folks, & tryin not to laugh at them, because their lol’n at me most of the time.
April 23rd, 20123:12 pm
Thank you for understanding on not revealing name. Sorry just cant right now, Come on down to san Francisco Harbor back beach. We will go for a good swim and have a cold beer, but you will have to help me cover because I am just 20.
April 23rd, 20123:13 pm

Is Ralph around around? Need to know what’s goin’ on down on the farm?
April 23rd, 20123:32 pm
Ha Ha (lol) selah!
I’m back had to go get some groceries. But Yea I’m the 1 calling for instant replay. Think about it there are so many bang bang plays in baseball or fair foul calls that get missed and Im not saying that the Umpires dont do a good job but even they need help. Just remember how bad Jim Joyce felt for blowing that No hitter from Armando Gallergra. If he had instant replay he would have gotten the call right and wouldnt have had to go through all of that. But It will also stop a lot of corrupt umpires that may be in baseball. Look Tim Donaghy was considered a good ref but when the FBI closed in on him betting on the games he officiated, and would affect the point spread to his favor. Well the same men that bet on NBA games and point spreds also bet on MLB games, and with alot more umpires and a lot more games it would make it easier for an official to get bought off and make some bad calls on purpose. Instant replay would help to regulate any corrupt umpires if there are out there. Also if you have replay you will have less arguments and less managers setting a bad example for kids, if a bad call was made the manager would challange it and the play would get reversed.
April 23rd, 20123:36 pm

April 23rd, 20124:15 pm
Do you understand why braves fan in San Francisco? Maybe someday collect on neck rub.
April 23rd, 20124:16 pm
I definitely miss Bobby Cox on those botched calls and small strike zone the majors have these days. I guess F.G. doesn’t want to pay those fines or he doesn’t have as much fire in his belly.
April 23rd, 20124:18 pm
yea well I have the best hands in the world lol
April 23rd, 20124:21 pm

April 23rd, 20124:47 pm
Yes iTiSi I got it. I have talked to you before under a different name. You hurt my feelings. So I do not for sure I want to talk to you.
April 23rd, 20124:49 pm
OK J_MAN I will be waiting for my neck rub anytime. I will keep the water warm and a spot on the beach.
April 23rd, 20124:52 pm
Gone swimming be back later.
April 23rd, 20125:08 pm
Ruf. @2:54pm……..”it may also cause you to NOT get the next call”,
OR it may GET you the next call.
“but it may have an impact subconciously. It is just as likely to be negative as positive.”
It may also be just as likely to be positive as negative.
Just because Joe West is a major A–hole does not necessarily mean, that the rest of his crew are A–holes.
If an ump makes a bad call, it should be pointed out to him, especially a potential game changer, such as the Bourne play. If the ump doesn’t like it or me afterwards, so be it. It’s not a popularity contest, it’s baseaball.
Also, if you let everything go, and NEVER complain about a bad call(as you advocate), perhaps “subconsciously”, that ump is going to give the close calls to your opponent, because your opponent might register a complaint, and the ump KNOWS that you NEVER will.
In the words of the immortal Forest Gump, “and that’s all I got to say about that.”
April 23rd, 20125:10 pm
Simple way to resolve bad calls……..INSTANT REPLAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
April 23rd, 20125:37 pm
Im Back Good nice swim.
April 23rd, 20128:45 pm
To those of you that compare Fredi to Bobby, you do know that Bobby handpicked him to be his successor. If Bobby trust him to manage the team, so do I.
As he says : Fredi can’t win with some people. He gets no credit, and all the blame. He’s doing a helluva job.
