actually,one or more of the last 3 innings
May 8th, 201210:12 pm
Thank God the Cubs aren’t a good team..
Celts up by 2.
Order is restored.

Dempster is carving us up.
He is in a contract year….and he has been carving everybody up this spring.
cabravesfan, May 8th, 2012, 9:49 pm … “she’s grin on me”
You Wanged that one.
Chipper has always been a klutz at third. about as much range as McFatty would have over thar
nolie – you up for helping me move some furniture this evening? ain’t much but I could use a 2nd
May 8th, 201210:13 pm
After avoiding most teams’ best starting pitchers recently (Dodgers and Dbacks series), it’s only fitting that we get to face Samardzija and Dempster back-to-back. Baseball has a way of balancing itself out.
Good poke, Bourn.
Hawks suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. Let’s go Braves. Matt Chernoff is still trying to believe in those hawks tho, what a homer…
nolie, I’ll pat my shoulder and say that’s exactly what I’ve been saying about Medlen in the pen since they said he’d be in there. Like you, my shoulder often hurts from all the patting.
Durbin should take medlen’s role so he can start in place of hanson….
May 8th, 201210:14 pm
Prado 2 for 3 but he can’t hit with Bourn on 1st.
May 8th, 201210:15 pm
Gotta admit, I have no idea what that is from…or what I meant…
my shoulder is ok, its pretty callused up after 60 some years of self-props
Hit it to CJ and most times he’ll get you. Very good, accurate arm and makes that play on the bunt as good as anybody, even now.
May 8th, 201210:16 pm
Can’t say I agree with Prado trying to bunt when their catcher stinks at throwing out runners.
I hate bunting in this situation.
Ask Bourn to try to steal.
Chipper has been fine at third over the years…
Oy…Yeah, I wanged that and didn’t even notice…clearly, I need more wine
May 8th, 201210:17 pm
Anyone think Fredo will put the bunt on with Freddie at the plate? Wouldn’t surprise me.
that’ll do Marty
Fredi is overdue
May 8th, 201210:18 pm
chipper was once considered by many as the worst third baseman in baseball
Bad toss….thank you
wine + cabravesfan + autocorrect = many, many great bloggisms. <grin>
Freddie showin off the wheels!
Tie goes to the runner. Whew.
May 8th, 201210:19 pm
Bravefaninok, absolutely. We need a run or two, boys! Why the hell is Bourny not running lately??
Suicide squeeze with Mac at the plate?
Oh boy, look who’s up
that is how you hustle out a grounder. Freeman’s hustle kept that from being a double play
I don’t know who that #5 is, but he can’t hit worth a damn 0-4 tonight
I disagree on chipper at third. You guys say mac is thin, then chipper ismbrooks robinson.
McCann is a good bunter……
DO something Mac …….for cryin’ out loud!!!!!!!!!!!
Actually, I don’t think it was a bad toss- was just not hit hard enough to turn a DP…
May 8th, 201210:20 pm
Double play coming up
cabravesfan … you meant “she’s growing on me” in reference to Zoey Deschannel.
A slam would be nice about now.
It’s UGGLA TIME!!!!
tryin’ to set up the Uggly DP
autocorrect has rendered me incapable of proper spelling…
May 8th, 201210:21 pm
lean into one here….
Deliver me, lord….
The toss was weak and lolly popped.
My eyes work very well, thank you.
and wine has rendered me incapable of proper grammar
Every Mac AB with a runner on first is a potential DP…
Hope he strikes out or walks so Chipper comes up
David from Athens, AL
Respect for Mac …
May 8th, 201210:22 pm
Sounds about right
Still remember Kerry Wood sticking it to the Braves in the playoffs.
Would be nice to see the Braves set him with the L in this one. Small redemption.
‘Course, Braves will sign Wood when Livan has finally retired.
Not to mention, poor judgment on pathetic tosses!
His name is…………………… !!!!!!!!!!
UGGLA IS BETTER THAN MCCANN!!! HE DELIVERS!!!
May 8th, 201210:23 pm
I’ll eat some crow, love it
Does Uggla juice?
Uggla only 3-4….
Don’t get too excited!
Eh, a meaningless go-ahead 2-rbi single by Dan Uggla.
Someone get Keith Lockhart out of retirement, please?
huge, clutch hit by Uggla
nope. Unless you mean the toss to Castro. His throw to 1st was fine
Thank you danny!!
another meaningless hit by Uggla, guy is worthless and as unclutch as they come
Single Uggla? Really?
cab … autocorrect makes sure you spell correctly. Just puts the wrong, correctly spelled words in place.
It’s kind of like a bizarre “mad-libs.”
Good job Uggs!
May 8th, 201210:24 pm
nice one battleaxe
The A Bomb
chipper needed tonight off….
Come on, J-Hey. We need you!
It’s an embarrassment… having guns like those, and being a singles hitter…
Smack one, heyward.
May 8th, 201210:25 pm
Don’t swing on 3-0!
Way to go, mac…
Does Uggla juice?
Dan Uggla carries his juicer with him wherever he goes. OJ in the morning gives you a little pep in your step. On the road, prune juice helps keep the line moving.
Really, McCann? WTF?
So “wanged” is an actual word??
McFann ain’t McCann amazing???
btw, what was that from Wood?
McFat great base running as usual
I’ve got nothing to say.
Chris from the Rock
May 8th, 201210:26 pm
McCann=quite possibly biggest liability on the base paths in MLB
My God, McCann is such an idiot.
Mac = rally killa!
That was a beaut Mac. My goodness why is he on this ballclub!?
nolie – another meaningless hit by Uggla, guy is worthless and as unclutch as they come
That’s what I’m saying. Fire Russ Nixon!
way to run the bases Mac…
Poor Mac … tough going right now
I’m becoming more convinced every day that Mac is just not focused this year. What the $#@!! is going on with this guy?
May 8th, 201210:27 pm
Not only with the Bat… he can also F up on the basepads..
Cap: Where's My Tip
2 run lead for JV and Kimbrel, 6 up 6 down guys!
Needs to get his arse chewed out…
TRADE McCANN NOW!!! BRING UP GATTIS
May 8th, 201210:28 pm
McCann would make a good back up for Gattis.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
