Damn Venter is ? so far this year.
Heyward and Freeman are the future of the Braves. Both are only 22, and already have high expectations. Diaz will likely be gone in another year, but he’s a great PH off the bench. I am amazed at his stats. vs. lefties. I’d rather be wrong and win. The Diaz double was HUGE!
Prior to Minor’s last game, he said that they figured his troubles began with his reliance on throwing the changeup too much. In the last two games, he has thrown very few changes. Looks to be working. Great game.

Jason came in at the TOP OF THE 7th as a defensive replacement.
told you so..Fredi better not let’em blow it.

Unlike you, I nevet root against a Btaves player.
Braca, you clearly have something against Jason Heyward. You wanted Jose Constanza to continue to get plate appearances in front of Jason and have never cared for him at all. This has been pretty clear by everyone who reads your comments. What I ask from you, is what Braves player do I target with hatred and vitriol as you do for Heyward? Matt Diaz? Don’t think I had a conversation with anyone about Matt Diaz. But you continue with your garbage.
Jonny needs to trust his stuff here

“I love how the blog has gone from “OMG Fredi is an idiot for starting Matt Diaz” to “OMG Fredi is an idiot for taking Matt Diaz out!”
Yes, I’m certain that’s the same posters you’re speaking of. Is this despicable? I wouldn’t want VJ to accuse me of being despicable.
Trouble brewing on two balls that really should have been turned into outs.
I was one of em, george stein….
Looks like bad johnny?
crap I got back just in time to see them lose I guess
I hope Venterbumb does not mess this one up for Minor.
All he has to do is get two lousy outs, he cannot do that he needs to go.
Great work for Mike tonight, so far not so great for Venters.

I hate Venters…the guy just doesn’t throw strikes.
I am not Random. I do not have a listing of all posts. But all I have gotten from you concerning Jason is that he is not all that.
The A Bomb
Once you let Gonzalez start making moves is when the cloud of negativity starts hovering around.
who’s already hit a three run double off of him earlier, take another crack at him with the bases once again loaded
But he didn’t know the bases would be loaded 10 minutes earlier when put him in to play right field in the top of the inning…

PLEASE Jonny! Get this over with! Moylan lite is warming in the bullpen!
Here we go…outside of Kimbrel..no one’s dependable from pen..everyone’s an adventure
Need to get Venters out of here now and I mean for good.
Send Venterbumb down and bring back Medelen. Venters cannot do the job anymore.
But to be POSITIVE Minor shoved it right up Gonzalez’s rear end tonight. Nice job.
Damn the bullpen and their tendency to make things way to interesting and put the game in doubt.
Ship Heyward to AAA (Rob from SC)
WE NEED A RIGHT HANDED SETUP MAN
Good comment by murph on the granderson single. Good pitch and a cue shot grounder. Just found a hole.
No excuse for the walk though to bring the tying run to the plate in Arod
Enter your comments here
Here we go again..one swing and its tied

LOL! Had no idea! Thanks for helping me out there. Shouldn’t have been pulling weeds.
Why can’t this idiot throw the ball over the plate??
Jesus Venters, please don’t blow this!
Looking like another AMAZING call to the bullpen by Fredi G.
Steve – you are really getting wearisome – you might as well have another word if you are going to spend the rest of your life making fun of me, for reasons I do not understand…
June 12th, 20129:28 pm
Keep the darned ball out of the dirt Jonny walker….red
Jonny isn’t even close….geez!
Rob – we do. His name is medlen
Clearly I was, Phil…
I kinda still am.
Puke. Come on Venters!!!
Jonny’s killing the dirt
Gotta take Venters out.
Another Venters meltdown, cannot blame Fredi for this. Johnny has made Fredi look bad too many times and this is Venters’ fault.
He needs to be DFA’ed/
Cap: Where's My Tip
low averages are pointless when you just flat out walk the guy
What is Gonzalez waiting for?
He’s going to spoil Minor’s great start.
…Durbin hasn’t been scored on in over a month….just sayin’.
Got to go Kimbrel here. CMart?.??
This is the save situation now Fredi! Kimbrel in now!
No EOF available?
Doofus(Goober and Gomer's Smart Brother)
Might I suggest Livan right here?
June 12th, 20129:29 pm
I hate McDowell…
Get VENTERS OUT HE’S A PIECE OF SHHHHTI THIS YEAR
No help in the bullpen with Martinez and Gearrin warming up. This is Kimbrel time.
If Venters lets this get away I never want him pitching in a Braves uniform again.
Same pitch right here
Can’t blame Venters… This is what happens after the previous two years of abuse.
Venters Is A Headcase
Lump in his throat bigger than a grapefruit.
Bet he walks him in..where the hell is Kimbrel.
June 12th, 20129:30 pm
Why blame Mc Dowell, when your supposed star set up man cannot do the job anymore.
This is the perfect time for a 5 out save
6 months off is plenty of time to recover, Ship.
Another brain-fart from Fredi.
Of course. I hate Venters.
Tip our cap to ARod?
Way to go Fredi. You’re a rocket scientist!
Jonny . . . . .

I feel so sorry for Minor
Are you freakin’ kidding me???
McFann :Ô: :Ô: :ô:
POOR MIKE MINOR!!!
WTF???? YOU JUST F’D MIKE MINOR, YOU F’IN POS!
Kinda wish he’d taken the Glavine approach but oh well.
I was just typing walk the guy…..
Oops! Oh well….
brand new ballgame now and the Yanks have their 2nd wind
Who amongst us did not see that coming a mile away? FG is golden when it comes to pitching changes!
Fredi Gonzalez, you are an idiot.
I would have left Minor in.
That sends Minor’s great effort right down the toilet. Ugh.
Johnny Venters sucks this year
Fredi strikes again. No excuse for this
Fredi get off ur @ss….get this clown out of there–grand fan lovin salami—on you Fredi!!!
You can beat Venters on most nights by making throw a first pitch called strike. He has not been able to throw more than a one called strike an inning on most nights. I think the league has figured this out. Here’s another one on Fredi. You don’t bring in Kimbrel. Brilliant!!!
New York Yankee baseball folks.
cab – 2 games
Fredi, hope you learned another lesson tonight.
Next time you are up 4-0 with a 7 game winning streak on the line, bring your best. Losing breeds losing.
Nice swing right there.
What a frigging joke. How do you leave this piece of crap in to face A Rod??
Talk about complete garbage. Way to ruin Minor’s good game. ESPN is gonna have a field day with this. LOL Such a joke.
and he LEAVES him in of course
If I was Minor I’d beat His a@@. Fire McDowell and Fredi.

Yeah, leave him in there like Livan, Fredi!
If Venters truly isn’t injured than I think he needs to practice in AAA until he can regain his form.
Damn..is Livan pitching
Venters effin sucks!
I want Venterbumb out of here he is the sorst relief pitcher in the game.
Shame for Mike Minor who was brilliant and this POS relief pitcher mucks it up for him.
I despise Venters, he sucks he is the worst. Do not blame Mc Dowell or Fredi, blame Johnny Venters. I HATE the BUMB.l HATE HIM HATE HIM.
Braves fans better BOO him when he is pulled.
