Obviously we chose the wrong year to draft a Vandy starting pitcher
May 20th, 20123:35 pm
damn that Moves like Jagger song is pure poo
May 20th, 20123:36 pm
I like that song
Yup, this Vandy pitcher just loses prettier

woulda been interesting to hit Rhymes and see if he fainted again….
“Very rarely has a player gotten close to being tossed under Fredi.”
The one memorable time was the Hinske check-swing tossing. That happened so fast, Fredi barely had time to start up the steps before Hinske was gone.

good comeback huddy
May 20th, 20123:42 pm
As Skip used to say, “A little insurance couldn’t hurt.”
Price threw 123 pitches in 7 inn., allowed 6 hits, 2 R (1 ER), 3 BB w/ 7 K. Braves keep getting starters’ pitch counts up.
May 20th, 20123:43 pm
yeah they do David, and that is a good thing I think
Freeman is struggling.
McFann :Ô: :Ô:
count_s that Moves like Jagger song is pure poo
If that’s the song I think it is, UGH!! I can’t STAND that song…
“I got da moo-oo-oo-OO-OOve!” Or whatever…anNOYing!…
I would not complain if we got another run or two…
First-Pitch Freddie with the first out.
May 20th, 20123:44 pm
Where did you come from???
D’oh! Forgot to change screen name…Sorry!
I wish we could trade Uggla..
May 20th, 20123:46 pm
Thanks for increasing my count…
Way to hustle, J-Hey!!!
May 20th, 20123:47 pm
That one extra post is going to get you into the top 25 for sure
there should be a rule that they have to pitch a lefty against Matty….
May 20th, 20123:48 pm
oh come on…freddie is having a really good season so far
Hudson is at 90 pitches, Venters is warming up as we start bottom 8th
Well the question is should Hudson go out there for the 8th inning……I think we should let Venters have it
May 20th, 20123:49 pm
I think id let huddy go all the way…venters makes me nervous
Dont allow a 1st AB walk
Toronto getting closer to the Mets…
May 20th, 20123:50 pm
Yeah, abeeewright, that’s the only one I can remember as well. I don’t recall it happening much last season.
Fan since '66
Come on Braves, let’s win ths and do it quickly. It is nap time.
Cap: Where's My Tip
doesn’t look like Tampa has lost a game this year when the opposition scored 2 runs or less so that insurance would be nice
May 20th, 20123:52 pm
That was a great effort by Wilson…
Thank you Freddy—Jack, I guess you got to try but we can’t have the dude in scoring position
May 20th, 20123:53 pm
great game huddy
Thats lets you know the Tampa Bay Rays are lame……..When Hudson leaves they play Bye Bye Bye by N*Sync……………Really lame
May 20th, 20123:54 pm
I’m not so sure Huddy wouldn’t be the better choice here, he has been nasty!
that was a short leash….
May 20th, 20123:55 pm
Great work by Huddy!
OK….let’s have some smoke from the Venters!
May 20th, 20123:57 pm
stupid to pull huddy he still had it
Venters blows another game. Just put Kimbrel in.
@J-Man….agree, “Eye of The Tiger,” more fitting
so how many will Jonny walk today?
May 20th, 20123:58 pm
Venters is the worst pitcher in baseball, who saw that coming?
WTF is this moron doing??
Ok thats not good…….Venters might need to be pulled
Venters is just awful this season. Take him out. Good grief!
shoulda left Huddy in
There goes Huddy’s f’ing masterpiece
This is on FG..no reason to pull Huddy..Madden never pulls somebody just cause they hit 100
“so how many will Jonny walk today?”
hitting the batters achieves the same thing with less pitches
Venters is killing us!
Fredi didn’t get the memo on Venters. Or maybe he can’t read.
May 20th, 20123:59 pm
Agree with you tommy, no reason to pull Huddy there.
What a shame that Venters cost Hudson a win.
Hudson’s in his mid-30s and still coming off back surgery. I understood the move to take him out.
Venters has said many times that he pitches better when he pitches more often. So what do the Braves do?? They give him a bunch of days off. Brilliant.
I can’t believe idiot is going to leave him in after hitting two in a row.
Venters is not the one who makes the decision on who gets put in.
May 20th, 20124:00 pm
Great… Jonny Venters pitching…
Jonny pitched on Friday.
Nick…your life must be so miserable and boring.
May 20th, 20124:01 pm
Why was Hudson taken out? He was doing great…
What luck! Whew…
LUCKY!!!!!!!! YES YES YES
WHAT A BREAK! Rather than be lucky than good.
Wow! What luck.
May 20th, 20124:02 pm
do you think venters needs to pitch everyday to be effective?
And again I say:
“What a shame that Venters cost Hudson a win.”
Um, Nick I thought Venters cost Huddy his win. You people give up too quick, it ain’t over til it’s over.
This is a weird freaking game. Two HBP to make the game close. Ross drops a tipped strike three. Inning ends when the batted ball hits the runner leaving first.
They hit what?, three guys today and none of them were Rhymes. Where’s the fun in that?
Pena get hits twice in the same inning
More Mac smiles (and a fist pump )
I think Uggla would have fielded the ball anyway, but glad it didn’t come to that.
Dugout reaction was great…
3 batters, 2 hit by pitch and a batted ball hitting a runner. Very strange, and fortunate, sequence there.
Wow…best opponents gift rendered this season.
“do you think venters needs to pitch everyday to be effective?”
I think he’s pitching through a weak shoulder… just my opinion
uggla was there to make the play anyway

Hudson should have had the chance to finish the inning.
My confidence in Venters is nearly nonexistant. I was telling myself he would eventually plunk Matt Joyce.
What? Uggla would’ve caught that
Rob from SC
I love Venters…but right now he sucks.
This is why Gonzalez should have been fired for abusing his arm
Jonny don’t seem to have any fun til he piles on as much drama as possible. The Tomahawkin of the pitching world…..
The A Bomb
The vulture is struck down by the baseball gods.
There is a great chance Uggla would have thrown out Scott
