The Braves offense is starting to struggle again.
Man on 2B nobody out with our 2-3-4 hitters up and we fail. This team has all the makings of a Jekyll and Hyde like personality.
J-Man – How do you think a scientfic hypothesis become a law, It is tested time and time again with differing factors but 1 constant to be able to evaluate any findings.
Scientific hypotheses — well-formulated ones — have absolutely nothing to do with opinions, sir.

McCann batting cleanup is more inscrutable than Chinese politics. I get so tired of seeing him squint and fail.
cabravefan I agree not every opinion cannot become a fact, thats why any opinion in order to become a fact must be tested

Gordon has hit 643 against the Braves? thats not too shabby
Minor with a no hitter through 1 batter.
Evening all, I see we have trouble with scoring leadoff hits again…
Nice pitch…froze D .
Nice to see a pitcher hit 93 mph for a change.
April 24th, 201210:21 pm
great start by Minor. Impressive with the first batter. velocity hitting 92 is huge for him
Minor looking sharp early…
McFann :Ô: :Ô:
He wasn’t…But for opposing players, just not being in my doghouse is like a compliment…
But he’s officially in it now…
hypothesis all are started as opinions LAG………..Otherwise they would be a law right off the bat
A leaping Dan Uggla? What does that even mean?
no hitter broken up count.
where are the hops Uggla? Layout!
I get so tired of seeing him squint and fail.

Really getting tired of seeing the Dodgers bloop hits.
Mac would’ve had a hit if he wasn’t so slow…
Minor cannot afford to forget the inside part of the plate. He has to keep the Dodgers honest
In my best Dave Chapelle voice:
I’m Fish Bisch!
Here we go with the goddamn Dodgers and their stupid bloop hits..
April 24th, 201210:23 pm
That many, huh. Okay my mistake
Kemp has a real powerful stroke i could really hear the wind behing them missed swings
April 24th, 201210:24 pm
Well, it…feels like that many……
Take a seat Kemp!
I know you must get a special feeling every time he’s on screen McFann, but he’s a terrible liability at the plate and on the pads. He should be batting 7th. It’s ridiculous to have a weak hitting tubbo batting 4th.
Good job of pitching by Minor
April 24th, 201210:25 pm
Come on, JC….easy with the gds
but he’s a terrible liability…
Aaaaaand…Ya lost me.
Thank you for playing—better luck next time.
Kemp has a real powerful stroke
April 24th, 201210:26 pm
any reason why i can’t watch the game on mlb.tv?
And damn for the homerun…. guess minor isn’t so hot today
send minnor to aaa.
well 2-0 I guess Minor wasnt doing that good after all.
As many have said….
Another uphill battle.
After Kemp, he exhaled and paid the price.
April 24th, 201210:27 pm
That was crushed.
may be on time going to bed today also
This team is starting to remind me a little bit of the one that began the season 0-4.
A hanging slider will usually get launched like that…unless its a braves hitter usually
September Braves showing back up.
You were saying, J-man? Lol
Count……..I see you like the Boondocks as well
Cap: Where's My Tip
April 24th, 201210:28 pm
don’t worry about it Minor, it’s just the first inning. Settle back in and shut em down and let the offense do what they do best
the dodgers are an unstoppable juggernut.
Estimated 437-foot homer for Rivera, 20th loge-level homer in 50-year history of Dodger Stadium.
except for Kemp this is not all that great a lineup
Well anyway, McFann it was at least to line drives, that almost took the pitchers head off, and was caught behind the bag. Not counting any number of other well hit balls into outs
April 24th, 201210:29 pm
Be nice to win one of these games boys!!!
How about tonight?!?
Dr. Kenneth Noisewater
fail to score in the first…again, down 2 runs already.
3 games ago, the bats cooled back off….
We’ll hit again in a month or 2.
J-Man – hypothesis all are started as opinions LAG………..Otherwise they would be a law right off the bat
Hypotheses are educated guesses/projections about the outcomes of experiments or processes, objectively based on previous related research.
Since opinions are by nature subjective, they can never be anything more than opinions.
one bad pitch by minor. Good recovery
Well it appears this Braves team is real streaky so far
April 24th, 201210:30 pm
“and let the offense do what they do best”
This is precisely what I’m afraid of.
‘the dodgers are an unstoppable juggernut’
Yessir, I see a lot of “want” in ‘em.
Typical way they play when they hit the west coast. Wish they didnt have to make that trip.
April 24th, 201210:31 pm
laces out dan!!
I guess a guess isnt an opinion …………..okay
drive the ball Uggla, quit popping it up
SICK of seeing that from DAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
April 24th, 201210:32 pm
sun setting on the San Gabriels is always a beautiful sight
Yeah…A lot of his outs with RISP have been well-hit (only one K in 14 ABs with RISP)…I guess that makes a 2-14 slightly less of a …bummer…Just slightly… He’ll find the holes soon…
I wish McCann would stop hitting the ball into the shift and then acting surprised that he didn’t get a hit. Hit it to the left side…there is A LOT of room over there, I CAN SEE IT!
April 24th, 201210:33 pm
way to work the count boys
Ted never hit it to left……
We need to make Harrang get deep into counts and take advantage of him later in the games
30 yr old Chipper puts that cheese in the parking lot.Sucks getting old.
April 24th, 201210:35 pm
well that was a nice waste of inning. 6 pitches total??
That was an easy inning for the Dodgers. Didn’t make the Harang work much there.
In the time it took me to yawn, three up, three down…
The inconsistency of this team is it’s ultimate undoing.
its going to be a mighty frustrating year if every game is 10 runs or 2 runs
sure does frisky
That 10 and 1 stretch was fun.
April 24th, 201210:36 pm
Looks like the offense we all know and love has returned.Thank God,the idea of scoring 4 or more runs was keeping me up at night.
Braves need to quit swing for the fencesd put that pitch to the opposite field
A lot of his outs with RISP have been well-hit
unfortunately pretty much all of them have been hit into the shift
Put Ross in!!
April 24th, 201210:37 pm
as soon as Joe says that…wow
big inning here for Minor. Need to recover from the leadoff hit and get a quick inning
what is the braves record at this place…this crap always seems to happen here
I think McCann should drop a bunt down like he did a couple of time last year when them teams went crazy with that shift. He had an infield single everytime he did that
unfortunately there was only one Ted..
April 24th, 201210:38 pm
Ick…I don’t like Jerry Hairston Jr…
And hows come their balls get to go OVER the fielders’ heads? Is that homefield advantage? ‘Cause that doesn’t seem fair…
They call him URIBE!
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
