Lets go Braves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow we got comeback thrills vis-a-vis Hinske
April 30th, 20128:21 pm
Mac is hitting .235?
Andruw would have dived forward for that
April 30th, 20128:22 pm
April 30th, 2012
Dude, you’re making me sweat! I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m…..sorry? Oh snap!
The plate ump is in over his head…
The man can flat out move
April 30th, 20128:23 pm
Your a good man, richbrave…
Nice – Hinske’s 2 for 2.
McCann could sure learn something from Barahas on blocking balls. I’ve seen him let 4 bounce off the chest protector and back into fair territory. McCann would have attepmpted to backhand all of them resulting in a couple of wild pitches.
And i’m an idiot….
April 30th, 20128:24 pm
Way to swing the bat, Minor.
We cannot be held to under 4 runs. Our offense is too potent now.
We win tonight 6-5
tomahawk: new generation
@phil: i only try to say Minor dont need to pitch relaxed only because is a bad ball club….
i don’t see nothing but fastball fastball and more fastballs ,,,, Minor needs to mix the foking pitches
if he want to be our ace he need to be smart no only throw fastballs
April 30th, 20128:25 pm
What a disaster McLouth was. I can’t help but think about that when the Braves play the Pirates.
April 30th, 20128:26 pm
Here come the mighty Pirates!
This is 1992, right?
April 30th, 20128:28 pm
“The happiest baseball moment in my career,” getting Mantle, Maris, Tresh, Kubek, Pepitone, Ford and Elston Howards autograph at a spring training game in Fl…….1968 season….all on 3×5 cards.
April 30th, 20128:29 pm
Hold ‘em here Mike and then we can bring in the other Mike
April 30th, 20128:30 pm
Wait…who is the other Mike?
Minor looked great that inning.
April 30th, 20128:31 pm
Minor looked a little pissed….that was a very nice inning.
I like Minor’s approach. If Teheran matures, I think we have one of the top 2 or 3 rotations in 2014.
April 30th, 20128:32 pm
Game vs. Pittsburgh and wish I had time to try getting a few Pirates’ autographs.
April 30th, 20128:37 pm
Wow. Not even close on that Freeman swing…
Doug Eddings is at it again.
April 30th, 20128:38 pm
Funny hearing Murph saying he finally figured out how to high-five
My god has there been horrendous calls in this game.
Did the umpiring crew go out for a “liquid lunch” today?
Eddings is a bufoon as an ump….he called that a swing?
April 30th, 20128:39 pm
Is there any accountability for umpires in the majors? I know, I know, the union and all that. But good grief, Doug Eddings is a joke.
April 30th, 20128:41 pm
I had time to try getting a few Pirates’ autographs.
I have Edward Teach’s
The umpires do get graded during the season, and those dictate post season assignments (and all star games) as well as bonuses and such…
There’s some but who knows how much…
The Super Pirates! Here they come!
A 4-game-series split. Against the Pirates. The Pirates.
April 30th, 20128:42 pm
Yet another poor defensive play by….
Yep. Mac. Sigh.
Mac is horrific behind the plate. Never a good throw
April 30th, 20128:43 pm
Sorry, how is that on Mac? Uggla had plenty of time to glove it
Jkbkbjsavdjhbvdasib.csadavhjcds, asked,as dug,cadaver
I’m no genius but time for Minor to hit the showers.
April 30th, 20128:44 pm
And another one!
5 runs in a single game by the Pirates.
They’ve done it TWICE this year…
Take him out, Fredi. Good grief.
One of those runs is on fat Mac
He bounced the throw. No big deal but it calls for a better throw. That’s all. Everyone knows uggla can’t defend.
April 30th, 20128:45 pm
Guess Fredi’s conceding the game.
4.60 ERA on the year, and about that for his career. A solid mid-rotation starter is what he’s shown. Nothing wrong with that. Just usually shoot for more with #7 overall……
Did you see the play? Did you notice that Uggla couldn’t keep it in his glove?
Tom with plenty of empty seats haha
IM SO STUPID AND I ALLOWED A HOMERUN BY NOBODY GARBAGE,….
6 RUNS VS GARBAGE TEAM
WOW AND FREDI ARE SO STUPID FOR NOT PULL OFF THE PITCHER…
April 30th, 20128:46 pm
That’s not all….
Did you not see the short hop. Mac throws everything in the dirt or flies open and hurles it towards the right field side of second.
Of course you know that thought right!
April 30th, 20128:47 pm
Nobody to blame but Fredi G there. Minor can’t get the ball down, everybody watching the game could tell but Fredi doesn nothing. Game was totally in reach and now…..well…we will see.
Strike out 9 and give up 6. Odd. Guess when he misses, he’s missing way bad!
I did see it. I also saw the ball in Uggla’s glove. Then I saw Uggla drop it. And not be able to pick it up. And then the runner slid into the bag.
Weird game from Minor, has struggled and thrown some fat pitches that have been dispatched but also has 9 k’s. Cant be lights out every game. Need offense to pick this game up
April 30th, 20128:48 pm
April 30th, 2012
fredi are so stupid?
April 30th, 20128:49 pm
so….Cab….how’s it going? (We need to switch this convo)
This is the same Mike Minor who said, “play me or trade me” man i dont know about that pitching staff, still seems a lil shady to me.
The Pirates might actually start believing they have a major league offense after tonight.
Yep, this one’s on Fredi. No way Minor should have still been in the game. He’s been shaky all night.
Just usually shoot for more with #7 overall…… _ Efrim
efrim’s opening line of Minor’s obit?
April 30th, 20128:50 pm
It would help if Uggla could glove an errant throw. Agreed.
But the throw was off. It’s often nothing new.
But this one is on minor….just not on his game tonight clearly.
April 30th, 20128:51 pm
Brian… what is up with him?
April 30th, 20128:52 pm
Please tell me what kind of atbat McCann just had.
Tell me what adjustment he just made on his heyward type roll over
Aw.. look at them, so cute.. 3 outs on six pitches. They’re fired up!
wow let’s see just how fast we can get out of this inning.
April 30th, 20128:53 pm
Andrew with that idiot grin!
Ya I hope the braves waste 100 mil on fat Mac! Trade him!!!!
Again, when did I say he had fixed anything? Or that he was hitting well right now?
April 30th, 20128:54 pm
@phil : what is your problem with “fredi are” ??? are you racist mother foker???? if you dont like close your mouth!
Chipper is snake bit….whacking it with zero to show.
Crap. Chipper has hit into some bad luck of late.
Wow! We have a cleanup hitter that is hitting .232 and cannot throw anyone out at second. Yep, the Braves oughta resign him for big bucks.
I’m sorry but there was nothing wrong with the throw. If Uggla mearly catches the ball the runner slides into the tag. that was on Uggla
April 30th, 20128:55 pm
If it’s any consolation, these are The Pirates!
Nothing you can do can stop them!
They’re a juggernaut!
A series split against such a monster team is all the Braves could ever hope for!
What on earth does race have to do with that??
April 30th, 2012
your post speaks volumes…
yell make this quick and hold them right there.
phil, I don’t blame Minor. Fredi should have taken him out after the 5th. He decided to play with fire and he got burned. And now he back out there. I’m turning it off. It’s making me really angry.
April 30th, 20128:56 pm
Well, we at least had a share of 1st place for one day. That’s about to end unless the Braves all of a sudden exploded. Don’t see it happening tonight.
Please yank his ass. Not 36 night
Maybe you can convince Chris better than I can. After all, I’m a woman and have never played the game, so I clearly don’t know anything
April 30th, 20128:57 pm
Did uggla drop it cleanly? If so, sure it’s on him.
Otherwise, i’ll concede 50-50. Mac bounced the throw, uggla ugglad the ball.
He’s, not he.
Minor should be taken out and deserves to be Booed for this P-Poor performance tonight.
He was left in too long and this game shows this bum is not ready for prime time.
Perfect opportunity to get into first, a must win game and these guys put on their September, 2011 selves.
mcann now hitting .230….with an awesome .299 obp….thats our 4 hitter
the worst game of the season !
why Minor is pitching yet? oh my god we have the worst manager of all baseball….
lead off hitter walked….
i dont like when the braves gift the game like a losers ….
uggla and chipper first pitch swings ….. completly losers
April 30th, 20128:58 pm
Yes he did. It bounced, went into Uggla’s glove, he dropped it, and couldn’t pick it up. All that happened before the runner was at the bag. That’s what I was saying.
April 30th, 20128:59 pm
–welp, I’m down to .250 now, only fat-boy Brian is lower…and if you subtract my opening day and my friggin’ birthday I suck even worse, plus I miss so many games…Hey, let’s all hit the Hooter’s!
Bad Chad coming in.
Medlen defenitely deserves to be the starter and either Minor or Delgado should be in the pen.
That was more for phil. Chris from is just a troll.
Braves fans shoulda booed Minor.
I am wondering if Mc Cann is just done, that is too bad because he has lost his game since last July.
I would leave Minor out there until his arm is no longer attached to his shoulder. Maybe he learns not to run his mouth like he did in ST. If you don’t have the stuff to back up your mouth, then shut it.
April 30th, 20129:01 pm
it’s dans fault McCann threw a sinker to second. You and cabravesfan fan are clueless
April 30th, 20129:02 pm
It’s only a matter of time before Durbin implodes again.
And it’s Mac’s fault Dan couldn’t keep the ball in his glove. Twice.
give them some more they need it.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
