Mostly 88-89 on Jurrjens fastball tonight, down a tick from Boston where he was 89-91. That’s assuming the guns in both ballparks are accurate.
Just got it on and finally sitting down….what? Rook Pitcher? We got 0…..surprise, surprise……and, Uggla? I better not ask.
June 28th, 20127:58 pm
Me, too, CTB.
i feel a run coming up right here.
June 28th, 20127:59 pm
or maybe it’s just ‘the’ runs…i don’t know..
(Rob from SC)
where did that miss
June 28th, 20128:00 pm
braves’ streak of facing winning clubs broken only because they beat ARI twice and picks back up tomorrow
June 28th, 20128:01 pm
Heyward is scary to face…
Nice to see Bourn work a walk. I really think that is one element of his game that needs improvement.
June 28th, 20128:02 pm
can’t believe Gipson missed his sons graduation..it’s one game dude..seriously.
Heyward is reaching the past three at bats….
send Heywad down now!!!!
think i heard the ‘f’ word there Jason..:)
June 28th, 20128:03 pm
one of them nights.
That was no good for Heyward. Two groundouts to the right side of the infield is reminiscent of the bad Heyward.
June 28th, 20128:04 pm
Time for Mac to step it up here. I hate seeing him struggle so, but this would be the perfect opportunity to end that slump.
Poof!!! The Prince is turning back into a frog! Saw it last night when he pulled pitches to the right side.
Keep churning Heyward, and break out of this 4 AB slump.
June 28th, 20128:05 pm
there’s that run i was feeling..
Way to go BMac!!!
June 28th, 20128:06 pm
Nice hit, B-Mac!!!
mac Mac mac
fat toad with another meaningless ribbie…
Jason learned to call his friend “Buck” from Mac. Can’t let your frustration show like that. The little kiddies look up to you…and some of the big, old, kiddies on this blog.
McFann :Ô: :Ô: :ô:
Ahh ‘teen looked gimpy there.
Heyward > Upton
could it be a RBI double by McCann? Sweet
June 28th, 20128:07 pm
Ugh. My cable box just went on fritz. Can’t wait to switch to Satellite.
agree Heyward > Upton
June 28th, 20128:08 pm
go ahead and light this boy up chipper
Yeah—that was odd…maybe it’s the heat…?
I would love to see more of that production from McCann.
The A Bomb
I’m taking note of all the Heyward…sorry…Wayward posts — just so I can ID the idiots around here who know ZERO about baseball.
Uggla HR I am callig it
3rd walk this inning off the rookie Bauer
this guys hurting..all those pre-game antics
June 28th, 20128:09 pm
I am really tired of seeing Bauer get calls on the corner while Jurrjens gets nothing.
June 28th, 20128:10 pm
Not antics — a respected and proven long-toss program.
June 28th, 20128:11 pm
Well, one way to get on base.
But this is Bauer — he has moments like this.
He was getting ready to send it and there you go–he gets wacked
missed the lineup posted earlier – didn’t realize that Uggla was dropped this far in the order.
Hit in the .230s and get dropped in the order – works for me
June 28th, 20128:12 pm
grand slammmm maybe
This pitcher takes too long to pitch…dear lord…
Freddy is ready to break this game open!
Send Freeman down too…
That Baurer’s pitch looks like a Lincecum special
June 28th, 20128:13 pm
grand slammmm maybe not.
June 28th, 20128:14 pm
The Braves really could have used another run after loading the bases.
Dan will raise tha average by 35 pts by August 2.
I hate it when they miss all those opportunities, often comes back to bite
i’m also feeling JJ giving up a run too.always happens
June 28th, 20128:15 pm
Either call grandslam or don’t, but you have to commit one way or the other.
61 pitches through 3 innings for Bauer, who walked three and hit Uggla with a pitch in third but got out of inning relatively unscathed when Freeman flied out on 1-0 pitch to leave bases loaded.
June 28th, 20128:17 pm
i wasn’t talking about the long toss. i actually believe in that and have my team do it. it’s all the other stuff i was talking about
Buckle down JJ, and get a DP here.
June 28th, 20128:19 pm
Good job with the throw, BMac!!
McCann having himself a night
fat toad with a meaningless throw out….
4 runs in 3.2 innings for Teheran
@McFann…..What about that….a Mac beauty
Nice throw, B-Mac!!!!
June 28th, 20128:20 pm
Go ahead, Heap
Mac is throwing very well of late.
JJ not as sharp tonight as against Boston
What a reachback catch!
June 28th, 20128:21 pm
Andy with another dandy!!!
Wow…..he’ fresh….exciting…..so exciting indeed
Holy cow! Simmons.
June 28th, 20128:22 pm
Holy fudge the way his foot caught in the grass scared the crap out of me.
GREAT throw, BMac!! And good catch by Simba…
Where is Jeff321 to give Chipper and Heap some love………..
Don’t normally do ingame, but an observation.
My wife and I are watching the game, and I say “He can’t do that”.
She says “what?” as McCann smacks the ball to the wall.
After Prado scores, I said “You can’t have a rookie out there shaking off signs from his catcher.”
Bauer shook off two signs before the pitch to Brian. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the outcome, but how can someone in their debut, ignore the advice of a seasoned ML catcher.
Never on my team would that happen.
Back to the game.
June 28th, 20128:23 pm
i was gonna build with BJ, it’s a shame it didn’t work out..La Jardin.
cab, did you just see who I just saw?
That was a very good throw!…
Anyone know where cabravesfan is?
June 28th, 20128:24 pm
rookie or not, it’s his decision what he feels his best chance is
Yeah! I saw her, too…
June 28th, 20128:25 pm
Mac is playing some gold glove catcher tonight!!!
No…maybe she’s busy with work (hopefully)…?…She hasn’t been around as much lately…
i’m not feeling a run this inning…maybe 2..
@McFann…..”That was a very good throw!…”
What I especially enjoyed was how quickly he came up and threw…..and it was a top MLB player running!
June 28th, 20128:26 pm
‘Behind the Plate’? is that a sequel to ‘Under the Grandstands’, by Seymour Butts?
June 28th, 20128:27 pm
Teheran 6 runs allowed, still in the 4th inning.
Nice leadoff double, kid!
I saw her, too
Nice hit the other way, Andy!!!
June 28th, 20128:28 pm
Nice bunt, JJ!
