We have no pitching. Hopeless feeling.
Joe in SoCal (down right miffed)
and just like that….c’mon venters.
It seems like evers hit Venters gives up goes right up the middle.
And Venterbumb does it again—he needs to be DFA’ed.
Worst reliever in baseball.
BTW–Three bad starts by Hudson in May. Both deserve to be Booed. This is a choke team and here is another losing streak in the making. Worst team in all of proffessional sports.

Simmons might have had that ball at SS…
1957 Braves Fan
Our pitchers sure give up a lot of multiple run innings.
Venters has lost velocity and movement on his pitches.
Subtle change in mechanics? Dead arm? Injury? It is more than simply the hitters making adjustments to him
Number 1’s struggle…Huddy still isn’t one though.
man that sukks
Disgusted, you sure get the award for “Most Extreme Posts”
May 30th, 20128:44 pm
And Hudson heads for the showers….
Need to get rid of McDowell and Freddie G, not getting it done.
Another big lead blown.
What do you think DOB?
Cap: Where's My Tip
5 ER in 5+ innings for Huddy ( and 12 ER in 12 IP past two starts). Maybe next outing he’ll get back on track
Worst team in all of proffessional sports.
I’m sure the Hornets would beg to differ.
Or the Sacramento Kings
Or the Astros
Or the A’s
Or the Twins…
Phil- John Kruk looked like he could take down an “All You Can Eat Buffet” with all the ferocity of a member of the Donner Party, but he was a career .300 hitter for his 10 year career.
Hudson can’t lose but he sure blew the chance to win. Venters is the only one who can win this game now.
…From the laundry room…had to do those jeans and such…I heard a distant voice say 5-5 St. Louis bats around….in the??? 6th…Oh boy–enjoy!
Disgusted…you need to be DFA’d you idiot.
May 30th, 20128:45 pm
I’m disgusted with Disgusted, he deserves to be booed….
ugh misery! that dang airy feeling just got sucked right outta here.
It’s the late movement that’s missing from JV’s pitches….
Fire Roger McDowell!!
Lot of worm-burning seeing-eye hits. That’s baseball, especially for a struggling team.
Freakin’ Venters, probably spent the whole offseason working out with weights
Hudson is number one–As number one candidate to sign his retirement papers.
Don;t you get tired of the “he threw a good pitch” card these announcers try to throw at you. If the pitches are so good why can’t he get one more stinking out. Rotten effort by Hudson tonight.
Its about results man. And results are something we NEVER get.
This is as bad of a Braves pitching staff we have seen since the late 80’s. Thesse pitchers stink.
May 30th, 20128:46 pm
if Georgie was worth a damn, we’d win this game…
Disgusted, you’d have a field day if they ever had battery day at the park, wouldn’t ya?
Hudson was only at around 75 pitches too..very discouraging
nolie, I blame the posters.
10 year career….
Not 15, 18 or so….
Too dang fat.
THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH VENTERS! I swear last year his stuff was unreal. Looking at his pitches I had to say WOW, how can anyone hit that? This year his stuff doesn’t have nearly as much action. Literally his stuff in 2011 was like Greg Maddux of 1995–absolutely unhittable. Maybe he has a tired arm, a small tear, lost his edge, lost the grip on the ball, lost his wind up, whatever–he is not the same pitcher–not even close.
May 30th, 20128:47 pm
Maybe ice…but not expecting a lukewarm shower at this hour??? Still love Huddy, and, I am real surprised he didn’t go……..ok now let’s get a few more guys.
speed, speed and more speed.
Love it Constanza
Summer…of….say it with me…GEORGE
I wonder if Frank realizes yet how bad we need Simmons at SS.
Or “Dozen Egg Night” lol
njbraves–Go on and apologize for Venters the way he is pitching he needs to be sent down and shown a lesson for being such a lousy pitcher.
don’t get greedy wilson – sac bunt not bunt for a hit

May 30th, 2012
EOF is back to shutdown mode. FG screwed that one up by putting in Venters
Man, Jack Wilson is one goofy lookin’ sumbich…
“Need to get rid of McDowell and Freddie G, not getting it done.”
How many runs did they give up tonight?
some questionable calls from this ump all night.
Jack Wilson has no business in the major leagues.
May 30th, 20128:49 pm
What is Hack doing?
I seem to have missed some of you here yesterday…why is that?
Wilson is a very bad hitter. And I wouldn’t call him a “hitter”, more like somebody who stands there and makes outs.
If I had my way Venters would never throw another pitch in a Braves uniform again.
let the BUMB go to the Mets so we can take BP on him wearing that uniform.
Send that umpire to Miami and let him get eaten by cannibals
@Disgusted….you are aware of my position on ‘free speech,’ but I happen to think the world of Huddy and I disagree with you on that retirement statement….let’s stay real guy.
Where Is DOB? No where to he found when the chips r down.
Doesn’t address any real topics.
May 30th, 20128:50 pm
speed – like the sparkplug
Give georgie a few more days and reality shall return…
May 30th, 20128:51 pm
Disgusted….you think sending Venters down will teach him a lesson?? What’s the lesson?? Pitch better?? The guy isn’t pitching poorly on purpose you dummy.
Man, I love Constanza’s speed.
“EOF is back to shutdown mode. FG screwed that one up by putting in Venters”
Who would you have pitch the 7th and 8th if you wasted EOF for the one out?
Jack Wilson is a roaming raccoon
May 30th, 20128:52 pm
Oh look, Jack drove in the go ahead run…
Wonders never cease.
Jack is my hero!!!
Oooooh, a run!
that run is Constanza – speed to get to second and the speed to score after that ball dropped
Like I said Wilson can get a hit once in a while if you’re patient.
May 30th, 20128:53 pm
sukk on that haters……
Outstanding at bat by the vet
Jack Wilson….professional ball player.
welp, that run was ALL constanza
GD MLB.tv is effing up on me right now. I’m missing the rally!
that was a good at bat by Wilson – he worked the pitcher hard making him throw a bunch of pitches.
wow…i was just about to order a Fedex ticket to South America for Wilson…and up jumped a rabbit!
May 30th, 20128:54 pm
way to go to the right side Matty
Good at bat by MattE too
Nice one, Diaz.
good at bat by diaz – inside out swing to put that ball on the right side of the infield. Good fundamental at bat by Diaz there
Well I’ll be jacked and hacked
“Everyday” Johnny means he allows at least a run every day! MERCY
can someone PLEASE tell me why constanza hasn’t been here the whole season. makes me wonder about the judgment in the club house.
“welp, that run was ALL constanza”
Yeah Wilson totally didn’t hit a double to drive him in.
If you look past the failed bunt attempt it was a great AB by Wilson – followed by a very good AB by Diaz!
suicide squeeze with Bourn??
May 30th, 20128:55 pm
Thats ok.Martin will get him in.
May 30th, 20128:56 pm
nice contact by Bourn – great defense by that pitcher.
Wilson should never have been so far off the base but great job by Wilson to somehow make that a longer rundown
way to come back to earth, Wilson…
take it personally BMAC that they are walking someone to get to you – make them pay for it
Another pathetic failure by Boras, er, Bourn…
because choke, we have Heyward……..dont you see how much more Constanza brings than Heyward? So the obvious choice is to keep Heyward
The crappy thing about the way the game is now is that if the Braves keep the lead, Venters will be the winner. Talk about non deserving.
May 30th, 20128:57 pm
Once again, cannot get the run in.
Poor Charlotte Bobcats, they got screwed in the NBA draft lottery. Not the first time its happened.
All this trash talk from our negative bloggers who don’t realize as of now -
1) Venters – winning pitcher
2) Georgie – scored winning run
3) Jack Wilson – game winning hit and rbi
McCann will hit another homerun here.
Notice Mac’s red cheeks….
May 30th, 20128:58 pm
Georgie the new RF.Enough of Heybust already.
Yadier showing Mac how NOT to playcatcher
for all the flak that McCann takes here, Molina has really struggled this series
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
