Katherine, he had a decent night.
June 8th, 20128:21 pm
Damn I miss Boog. I’d take him drunk over a sober Chip anyday.
Concerning KJ, could it be that pink ensemble he was seen in last evening with matching flats?
Now Katherine. you think that about K J ?
June 8th, 20128:22 pm
@CTB, you obviously didn’t watch the Marlins series if you feel that way…
Beachy keeps missing up. Not good.
Brandon’s ‘effectively wild” tonight.
June 8th, 20128:23 pm
Love the Braves. I grew up in Alabama but moved to Australia about 20 years ago. Have a new baseball league in Australia now sponsored by MLB, so the game is growing here – very exciting.
June 8th, 20128:26 pm
JJ trailing 2-0 after 4 innings, Chipper 1-1 with an RBI
@TNScott, he definitely is. I like when he’s just “effective” though – makes me less nervous. I keep waiting for him to hang one to Bautista.
Bout time we got a dadgum boarder line call go our way!
June 8th, 20128:27 pm
Katherine – are you sure you did mean McCann throws like a girl? KJ safe by 10 feet even in the tutu. The throw may not have even been within 10 feet of the bag.
McFann :Ô: :Ô:
June 8th, 20128:28 pm
Wonder if Smoltz gave BMac any grief about being bald now, too…
I thought minor did a good job last night
Me too. But all the haters on here are gonna say, well, he only went 5 innings. He pitched well enough for his team to win, and that’s all that matters. Hope he keeps this up.
June 8th, 20128:29 pm
JNick, you can go to the minors too.
Wat to hustle, BB.
June 8th, 20128:30 pm
The line on Medlen last night looks impressive.
LOL…that was a funny mistake by Braves TV…”Solo Homerun, First HR by Beachy this season” – Smoltz probably did that.
lol i didnt say kelly johnson plays like a girl…I just say he looks sort of feminine to me…and aussie how is it living there compared to alabama?
Knowing Smoltz he did.
June 8th, 20128:31 pm
Nice hustle by Brandon!
In case anyone missed it….
June 8th, 20128:32 pm
Folks I think Constanza will be the one sent back down when Chipper comes off the DL. The hot hitting didn’t even last 2 weeks this time.
I would LOVE to know what he said…:)
June 8th, 20128:34 pm
@ncbravesfan90 – could be – or could be Boscan. No reason to keep 3 catchers on the roster, now that Ross says he’s 100% again. We’re also down a man in the bullpen, so…could be both!
June 8th, 20128:35 pm
Nice rope by Bourn!
I’m thinking both Boscan & Constanza get sent down in the next day or so.
June 8th, 20128:36 pm
@cabravesfan, who gets called up for the bullpen?
June 8th, 20128:37 pm
No idea where Bourn thought he was going, but he was nearly half way to 3rd on that…while Beachy was pretty much anchored on the 3rd base bag
Prado’s kicking himself right about now…
Another CRUSHED ball by the Braves offense.
June 8th, 20128:38 pm
two bad calls by Snitker in a row might cost us this run. bad play
If Constanza is unable to move a runner over…and the man on base is a pitcher….then he is no longer working in the 9 hole. He’s an energy boost, not an everyday player.
Don’t know- honestly don’t follow the minors much at all. But I bet they call up an arm for the pen…maybe Gearrin?
June 8th, 20128:39 pm
Sluggla up with the sacks full….
I don’t agree with all this announcer BS about Beachy not scoring from third for whatever reason. He’s one of the top 5 athletes on the team and played baseball in college as an everyday player. He can run the bases.
June 8th, 20128:40 pm
I’d say the arm would be Gearrin as well, he’s on the 40 man roster and has a nice 1.14 ERA as well.
Yeah, this is two nights in a row where Constanza couldn’t get a sac bunt down. Looked worse than our pitchers.
@nolie, maybe, but also don’t want to send Beachy into a possible collision with the catcher. Anyone else on base would have been sent, I think…
June 8th, 20128:41 pm
so far Toronto has gotten some breaks this inning
Hammer this Uggla!
No need for Uggs to try an d kill the ball right here. Just get a hit. Leave some for Heyward.
June 8th, 20128:42 pm
Hammer the walk that is…YES! That is what I meant!
A walk works too…
Just another GREAT at bat by Uggla there!! Atta Baby
JC Brave – “Oh well” what?
Wow, O surely didn’t expect that…
June 8th, 20128:43 pm
You didn’t expect our RBI man to get an RBI? lol
Brian from SC
4 hits, 3 walks…Drabek ain’t foolin’ nobody. Braves need to put a crooked number up to make him pay.
Drabek got away with one there…that was right in Jason’s wheelhouse….
Good eye, Dan!
June 8th, 20128:44 pm
Well, at least the Braves brought in one run.
CUTE BABY ALERT!!
June 8th, 20128:45 pm
O = I*
Hate that. Swung at ball 3, could’ve had a big inning.
Pastronicky batting .161 at AAA
June 8th, 20128:46 pm
Is this pitcher Moe Drabek’s son? Drabek gave us hell in the early 90’s as a pitcher.
June 8th, 2012
I agree..that was not a good at bat..
It’s great here – can’t complain! I get to come back pretty often so all is good. Coming again next May and will fit in a game or two hopefully. It’s absolutely freezing today though.
June 8th, 20128:47 pm
@keylargo, yeah, Doug Drabek’s son…
Braves 3 for 3 with the bases empty, 1 for 8 with runners on. Just gotta put a couple hits together.
June 8th, 20128:48 pm
You didn’t expect our RBI man to get an RBI? lol
Look up Uggla’s numbers with the bases loaded since becoming a Brave. Or the team as a whole…
Ship Heyward to AAA (Rob from SC)
Heyward is a work in progress
If JHey could’ve came through with that at bat with a base hit that probably would’ve ended this game imo. That’s the way JHey is though kills is one night and you think he’s gonna get it going and then he sucks the next night…
June 8th, 20128:49 pm
keylargo, if you mean Doug Drabek, yes thats his son. You’re kidding, right? How after all the times it’s already been mentioned in this game and so many times before did you not know that?
Beachy looked sharp there…
Love the Braves. I grew up in Alabama but moved to Australia about 20 years ago. Have a new baseball league in Australia now sponsored by MLB, so the game is growing here – very exciting.”
Nolie, at the risk of beating a dead horse, did you read anything definitive on what what will surely become known as “the ruling” (minor’s at bat)
June 8th, 20128:50 pm
I’ll be shocked if JHey ends the year with a batting average above .260. #Sad
Get ‘em Beachy.
Interesting how the fans are booing Yunel. I suppose all the fans got tired of his attitude in ATL as well.
Gil In Mechanicsville
June 8th, 20128:52 pm
Nope, can’t see it at all CTB
“Interesting how the fans are booing Yunel. I suppose all the fans got tired of his attitude in ATL as well.”
Yeah it wasn’t just Bobby that disapproved of his attitude but the fans as well.
June 8th, 20128:53 pm
I wish it was freezing here..I love the winter
He’s easier to boo with Simmons at short.
no Woody, I just know that was the same decision that I’ve seen b4. I think both of those calls were correct
SCOTUS ruled today, Woody.
June 8th, 20128:54 pm
Woody – Well put.
That guy frosted my tips on a number of occasions. Good riddance.
I’m in L.A. (lower Alabama.)
May be a rough night. Beachy’s wild and Heyward is back to being Heyward.
June 8th, 20128:55 pm
I’m so glad it’s never “freezing” here. That’s a little too cold for this girl
oh come on mixxo…way to be negative
Bat–did Scalia vote with the majority?
JNick – I don’t know where I got Moe from but Doug Drabek gave 1 run in two starts (about 15 IP) in the NLCS in 1991 Atlanta vs Pittsburg.
I love Esco….always have.
June 8th, 20128:56 pm
lol frosted tips….those really were stupid huh
Beachy count getting high
With his high pitch count, we’ll be lucky to get 6 out of Beachy tonight.
June 8th, 20128:57 pm
6 strike outs nice!
Enter your comments here
June 8th, 20128:58 pm
Beachy looks exactly like he did last year with high pitch counts by the 4th or 5th with a lot of strikeouts.
June 8th, 20128:59 pm
we need freddy back
’ske becoming almost as worthless as Constanza……
June 8th, 20129:00 pm
i love the red jerseys….
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
