Simmy? And I thought Bourny was a bad nickname.
It hurts to be just good enough to lose…again.
June 29th, 201211:57 pm
Awfully tough loss (you’d think all HInske can do is roll over a pitch he would at least get runner over to third). But you know what for the first time in awhile we fought to the LAST pitch and that makes me a bit positive. We did not roll over like we have in the past and maybe that fight can translate to some wins here.
BTW Venters last few batters reminded me of last year maybe he can find a groove walking the pitcher awoke him! I love my Braves and will always be positive about my boys. tough loss but it is a grind of a season stay positive and let jump on Strasburg early and pray Minor is on hah

June 30th, 201212:01 am
DOB should be working in the spin room. Why not ask, every other manager in the league would have bunted in that situation why didn’t you. No follow questions on why not bring Hudson in to bunt. We just get SkI and got to tip your cap.
June 30th, 201212:07 am
nothing but BS from this clueless manager.. but wheres the media asking him why didnt he bunt freeman to third.. ask the questions.. its time for Gonzalez to go..
June 30th, 201212:08 am
Same old song: poor situational hitting, lousy bench production, poor rookie pitching, and inept strategic managing. Braves may be out of the running soon. I just hope they release Hinske, Wilson, and Diaz, and promote some of the young talent in AA and AAA. Simmons has worked out pretty well. If Braves can manage to hang in, perhaps can swing a deal for a starting pitcher and use some of the young pitchers for the trade. As far as the inept managing, I fear we are stuck until Fredi is let go, probably at the end of another dismal year.
June 30th, 201212:15 am
Let’s review: you surrender a 2-out run-scoring single to opposing pitcher, who didn’t have a hit or RBI all year; you spend one full inning treating the ball like a hot potato; you finally get some momentum and tie the game, only to give up a 1st pitch homer in the next frame; you waste 2 leadoff doubles, including one in the 9th when it mattered most. And all of this playing at home against the team your chasing for 1st place. Ladies and gentlemen, let’s hear it for your 2012 Atlanta Braves!
June 30th, 201212:16 am
I think DOB knows how much we have come to hate the “cap-tipping” from Fredi, so he leaves those comments out. Either that, or Fredi’s been reading the blogs and is more self-conscious about those inane trite euphemisms.
You morons realize that Fredi did not make THREE errors in one inning correct? Argue all you want about bunting Freeman to third but players should be held accountable and i feel like EVERYONE on this forum who are not true fans bashes Fredi for every loss. Be real fans quit griping and support this team. LONG year just ask STL and TB from last year just hang in there keep fighting and hopefully get hot.
And to the ppl who want to promote talent from AA and AAA but bash young pitching get a grip on reality.

IlliniBrave: Actually there were no cap-tipping quotes from anyone tonight. Believe me, if there were I’d have certainly included them. You kidding me, leave them out and miss the predictable reactions from you and a few others? No way.

God help fredi..he needs it..so do I.
Fredi Will Screw It Up Somehow
You morons realize that Fredi did not make THREE errors in one inning correct?”
Oh pipe down, he had a chance to tie the game in the 9th and screwed up, quit making excuses!

June 30th, 201212:46 am
Thanks, Dave, for the cap-tip clarification! Now, the conspiracy theorists can go to bed, assured that you didn’t shaft them out of a chance to cap-rant….. But, can you do anything to help Fredi to have better nicknames for the players? Simmy is a wretched nickname!! Baseball players should have good nicknames………. Thanks……………
Hey “Dave”… there is a cure for cancer, Santa Claus is real, and there are no more income taxes…
Here’s the UNHOLY trinity…
Chad “Proctor” Durbin, “DOUBLE PLAY” Matt Diaz, and Fredi “EL STUPIDO” Gonzalez…
You talk about “Morons”… you DON’T bring in Chad “Proctor” Durbin in a tie game!!!!!!!!!!!!
Matt Diaz… “he rakes lefthanders you know.” Maybe Diaz “was able to keep his sense of humor after tonight’s loss.”
“Dave”… you are either a Liberty CHEAPIA employee or a relative of Fredi “Ricky Ricardo JR.” Gonzalez. Calling passionate, knowledgeable fans “morons” sure makes you look like a genius.
June 30th, 201212:47 am
Instead of “gutless reporting”, gutless questions would be more like it. If this had been a courtroom DOB would have been guilty of asking a leading question on the failure to score the tieing run. Why not come right out and say “why didn’t you send Hudson or Ross up to bunt to get Freeman over to third, rather than Hinske?” Eric has done practically nothing all year, and everyone could see that except the brilliant wizard, FG! Anyway a real manager who knows what he’s doing could have pulled this one out easily.
June 30th, 201212:49 am
Why no quotes from Chipper after the game? Did he refuse to make himself available? If so, that is very uncharacteristic for him. But, given the huge implications of his fielding error, one has to think quotes from him are something you would have sought out.
That is the second time since his leg injury where he fielded a grounder off to the side like that. Did you ask Fredi about that? I think it is an issue that needs to be addressed. You don’t play grounders like that because they lead to a high chance of error.
June 30th, 20121:12 am
Rafael you are spot on. Maybe the management at AJC will text Fredi some questions.
After watching the ninth inning, Gonzalez should have been fired before leaving the dugout tonight.
June 30th, 20121:14 am
Can’t hang this one on the manager, boys. Think we really do have to t** our c** to Mike Morse and the Nats this time.
June 30th, 20121:16 am
I’m sure it wasn’t a conscious decision on Chipper’s part to play it side-saddle. After getting hurt like that, it’s gotta be a reflex. Judging from the look on his face afterward, I’d say he knew he screwed the pooch on that play.
June 30th, 20121:24 am
OK~!!!! I try and give Freddie every chance I can! I Was NEVER A Booby Cox Fan! I was long the same thought as a guy who called His self “Robert!” Cox is one of the winnigest managers of all time! However He also lost more games than any mger in baseball! Tonights game~ Well~ Freddie Lost it due to his mismanagement! Down one run in Bottom of the 9th~ runner on second NO OUTS! He lets “Big Face” Hinske Bat~ and of course swing away? The other choice? The obvious one? Pinch Hit Ross~ have him bunt the runner to third~where there wud be one out? However? The SMART move?????? Would be to pinch hit Tim Hudson~! Let him bunt the runner to 3rd! Freddie Lost this game! It’s all on Freddie! Freddie Does seem to have some sort of “lateral” thinking going on.
Unlike “The Donkey” Cox! However~ I’m startin to think~ Freddie’s lateral thinking? Is sorta Like “Rocky and Bullwinkle?” “Watch me pull a rabbit outta my hat?” The All Star game is approaching?
He sits Prado~ and Uggla!~ Which leaves “Washed Up Diaz” in Left field with that Awesome ability to play the field? And of Course~ We Have the Next “Chris Woodward” playing second? (Jack Wilson?)
Who came to the plate twice in key position to drive in a run?
I try to be open minded about Freddie~ Tonight he Whizzed me off! I’m still gonna give him the “Benefit” of the doubt! However not MUCH longer! Theres Never! been a Major league manager Who
Really didnt have a “Clue” Since Bobby “The Donkey” Cox!
Just my opinion~!
I’m stickin to it!
June 30th, 20121:33 am
@DOB: gotta give you huge props for the way you finessed the “should Hinske or another player have bunted Freeman over” question. Great job. You walk a fine line, and obviously if you asked the very direct, sometimes obnoxious, and definitely critical questions that we all say you should, you would likely lose your beat with Fredi and the Braves. My past comments have been critical of Fredi, but not of you. You got a job to do and you do it really well.
.500 team or maybe under .500
June 30th, 20121:37 am
THIS TEAM IT’S A TOTAL DISASTER…SADLY THE GM DONT GONNA MAKE A TRADES OR MOVEMENTS FOR CHANGE THE SITUATION
THE BRAVES NEEDS:
AT LEAST OTHER STARTING PITCHER (LIKE GREINKE OR GARZA)
A RIGHT HANDED BATTER WITH POP (LIKE WILLINGHAM,QUENTIN,CUDDYER)
AT LEAST ONE OR MAYBE TWO RELIEVERS (LIKE BALLFOUR OR BRANDON LEAGUE)
2 BATTERS FOR REFORCE THE BENCH ( KOTSAY LH, JONNY GOMES RH )
DFA: WILSON , CALL UP PASTORNICKY AND CONSTANZA
TRADE HINSKE FOR KOTSAY
TRADE GARTRELL FOR GOMES
TRADE MIKE MINOR,TERDOSLAVICH AND GEARRIN FOR GREINKE OR GARZA
TRADE JUAN FRANCISCO FOR WILLINGHAM ,IF THEY WANT QUENTIN OR CUDDYER MAYBE NEEDS TO ADD VARVARO AND AA PROSPECT
TRADE TODD REDMOND,LUIS DURANGO AND AA PROSPECT FOR BRANDON LEAGUE , MAYBE ONLY REDMOND FOR BALFOUR
BOURN 8 PRADO 7 HEYWARD 9 JSONES 5 UGGLA 4 MCCAAN 2 FREEMAN 3 SIMMONS 6
SP: HUDSON, HANSON, JURRJENS, GREINKE/GARZA, DELGADO
RP: BALFOUR MEDLEN OFLAHERTY VENTERS DURBIN LEAGUE KIMBREL
BENCH: ROSS, PASTORNICKY WILLINGHAM GOMES KOTSAY OR CONSTANZA
WILLINGHAM COULD PLAY IN LF AND PRADO 3B IN CHIPPER’S DAYOFF
WILLINGHAM COULD PLAY IN LF VS LH PITCHERS CHIPPER JONES 3B AND PRADO IN 1B
IF THEY TRADE FOR CUDDYER HE CAN PLAY LF/RF AND 3B
A LOT OF GOOD OPTIONS, A CRAP GM
June 30th, 20121:39 am
@Mr. Blackberry, in case you hadn’t noticed, we have a team with a serious head case when it comes to the Nats and the Phils, and it’s been this way for years. Whether Fredi stays or goes, we need an injection of new people somewhere who don’t take the field expecting to lose.
June 30th, 20121:40 am
Wow I think my old high school coach who wasn’t a very good coach at all would have handled that ninth inning better than Fredi.
Very said because while the players did put themselves in a hole by making those errors but were able to fight back and tie it and be in a position to win. Then Fredi decides to be Fredi.
June 30th, 20122:04 am
June 30th, 20122:44 am
This team is depressing.
June 30th, 20123:04 am
A REAL MANAGER
Frank, can you please hire a real manager — one who is capable of doing just that — MANAGING!
Pretty much all Fredi manages to do is to MANAGE potential wins into losses.
I’ve never seen someone as inept.
How many more losses does it take before this needed change is made?
June 30th, 20124:57 am
Some think you are not a braves fan if you criticize. Ludicrous. Even the fans who are glass half full with blinders on have to see the manager blunders. This team has talent to be in first. Weak link is coaching There is no execuse whatsoever to waste lead off doubles. You bunt him over and tie it on a fly ball. It is like being second and one in football and only throwing 40 yard passes. Pick up the first. The team does not, will not manufacture runs. And tonigh minor v strasburg. Ain’t getting better. TheNats will fall back at some point but the Braves will not be team to catch them with this manager. Oh yeah and snitker needs to stop holding up runners. With a team that can’t create runs you have to cringe every time the runner is held at third instead of aggressively trying to make play at plate. It is not just costing runs but costing games.
June 30th, 20125:30 am
June 30th, 20125:41 am
The Nats tip their hats to Fredi for his blunders allowing the W after blowing the lead.
June 30th, 20126:07 am
Fire Fredi the Failure…Game after game he finds a way to lose so he can do what he does best..make excuses.
June 30th, 20126:49 am
will this team ever get a hit with bases loaded?they are unbelievably bad in this siuation.
June 30th, 20127:06 am
Hopefully Minor will give us a decnet start tonight. With Straberg gogin, it is gogin ot be tought. The loss of Beachy is really hurting us. Minor and Degado have been down the last few strats. Teheran got hammered the other night in AA> Medlen needs to be in the rotation and Redmond needs to at least be givan a shot. Could not hurt at this point. Bench is weak. Hinske is hitting like Norton did in his last year wiht the Braves. Francisco had some ealry success, but nothing now. Diaz if off/on. Wilson is a defensive whiz, but wiht Simmons, he is expendable. That leaves us with Ross as the only bench player who is cobtributing and he does not play as he is held back.
We need tweaking from wihtin the organization and if that does not work, time to go outside. Problem wiht that is you have ot give up quality to get quality.
June 30th, 20127:14 am
Since may 7th Durbin has been the best relief pitcher this team has had other than Kimbrel so to bring him in at that point in the game was not a bad move. The last thing you want at that point is a lead off walk so you have to go after him and sometimes the hitter wins the battle.
The part that upset me the most in last nights game was the way the Braves played in the 2nd and 3rd inning. They looked like the key stone cops twice running around with Espinosa and then in the 3rd they played defense like a bunch of little leaguers. I like Chipper but he looks like he is afraid of the ball hitting him on his leg again and I’m sorry but you can’t play 3rd base if you wont get in front of the ball. No matter what the the official scorer says that was an error but as soon as I saw him pouting on TV after the inning I knew they would change it.
June 30th, 20127:15 am
Has any public figure ever gotten his “tenses” (past, current, future) mixed up and inter-mingled worse than Fredi?
Too disheartened to write about the game . . .

June 30th, 20128:04 am
Off subject, but I watched the game on MLB network last night and the Nats announcers called the game. F.P. Santangelo may be the WORST color man I’ve ever heard (worse than Dibble). Be happy with Joe Simpson, very happy.
June 30th, 20128:34 am
83-79 will be their final record. Starting next season, Chipper, Hinske, Wilson and Diaz should all be gone!
June 30th, 20128:39 am
Shortterm: Trade for Jack Willingham; play Prado at 3rd; Use Chipper as a pinchhitter only; Get rid of Wilson and bring up Pastornicky to be utility infielder; platoon McCann and Ross-play Ross against all LH pitchers; fire FG and pitching coach- hire someone who can develop young pitching and not ruin young players like Simmons.
Longterm: Do not resign McCann. He cant see anymore and cant hit anymore. He’s not even fouling off pitches. Sign the corp players we need longterm-Freeman, Heyward, Prado, Simmons, Bourn, Hanson, and trade for at least 1 dominant pitcher and sign him longterm ( Cole Hammels ? ) who the Braves can build their young pitching staff ( see what Washington did with Geo Gonzales this year ).
June 30th, 20128:40 am
It looks like we all have to step back and temper our expectations. This team has waaayyyy too many problems to be anything more than a tease.
1. The manager can’t manage. Makes too many bad, bad tactical mistakes.
2. We have a 3bman who was a great player but is only a shell of his former self. His defense (or lack of it) hurts the team more than his bat helps it. Because of what i call salary politics nobody within this franchise has the balls to explain to him that his time is past and he should become a role player instead of starter.
3. Our catcher just can’t hit anymore. But the dumb ass manager keeps putting him high up in the lineup seeing only the past and not the present. I also dont think of the guy as much of a leader.
4. This team has other problems also but I just called out the 3 most glaring in my eyes.
June 30th, 20128:46 am

June 30th, 20129:18 am
Everyone blames Fredi (I do too) but the blame should also go to Wren who hired him and did nothing this past winter to improve this team.
Both should be fired.
Ralphie your line=up was funny! But right on.
June 30th, 20129:24 am
Hmmm…let’s see. The Braves sit on their hands during the winter. The Nationals improve their team during the winter. The Braves stand pat with their last year little league pitchers and tout their greatness. The Nationals improve their pitching staff over the winter.
Here’s a news bulletin…the vastly improved Nationals, who have been in 1st place from day one, are back to humiliate the Braves again.
June 30th, 20129:39 am
Is anybody besides me sick of watching Chippers feeble attempts at catching ground balls to his left or right. Third basemen are supposed to get in front of the ball knock it down and throw out the runner. Chipper is afraid of hurting his knee so he lets it go by with a stab at it.
June 30th, 20129:44 am
Still lots of problems that are simply not going away. Anyone who expects anything better than 5-5 on this homestand and close to .500 to end the season is not seeing this team for what they are – average.
Need new leadership in 2013 to go along with the young talent. If Fredi is back next year, will just be more of the same.
June 30th, 20129:54 am
Hey, relax, just a game…the ACA passed,now we don’t have the worst health care system in the western world
Soory to say this, but I see a sweep for the Nats.

Hey Paul..do your homework thats not true but we do now have the biggest tax increase in history. However that has nothing to do with baseball.
June 30th, 201210:04 am
Hi Guys. Calm down Gentlemen. It’s ONE GAME.
We may win one, Whiskey River, but that is simply nowhere near good enough. The Nats have owned the Braves the past few years and the Braves know that they can’t beat them consistently.
Even if the Braves were to miraculously win the next two, they’d probably follow it up with losing 3 of 4 to the Cubs. That’s been their MO in 2012.
Bunt the man to 3rd Fool Fredie gave another game away. Hard to see manger who can not game day oach.
June 30th, 201210:06 am
Walgreen’s still has Kleenez on sale.
All the Braves need in most of these games, are one hit, in the right situation.
It is frustrating to see them lose games like this.
But, I don’t see any need to go off of the deep end with concrete shoes on, yet.
June 30th, 201210:10 am
Hi reckingball. Are you the only one that has patience. That is rare in a man. It is not even half way in season and everyone but you and I are writing them off. WHY?
June 30th, 201210:14 am
I hope that the Dr. Jekyll side of Minor, shows up to pitch today, and will stay for more than 3 or 4 innings.
Haven’t seen him(Dr. Jekyll side) stick around for any length of the games, since Fredi pulled him out in the 8th against the Yankees, a couple of weeks ago. haha

June 30th, 201211:06 am
This team is sort of rebuilding, sort of not. An odd mix, and one that is hard to win with. I think it’s important to look ahead a season or two. We have some great prospects playing now and some more about ready to play, “Simmy,” of course, and several good pitchers. Let’s not make any dumb trades to rent a couple guys who might or might not be the difference for the second wild card–a playoff position that is like trying to climb a mountain in street shoes–and lose a couple near-future quality starting pitchers.

June 30th, 201211:30 am
Well, I have to agree about McCann. His average is around .210 since last August 1 (a month shy of a full season) and in the .230s currently. We were a bit spoiled with a great hitting catcher but now he’s becoming a normal hitting one with flashes of brilliance. He will still end up with decent stats at the catcher position but for the love of Chief Nokahoma, move the guy out of the middle of the line-up. Also have to agree about the bench, with the exception of Diaz against lefties and of course our 2nd string catcher (who we can’t use), it is just awful. Chipper? I hate all the days he spends in the dugout but be careful what you wish for, .290 hitting 3rd baseman don’t grown on trees.
June 30th, 201211:39 am
June 30th, 2012
I don’t like Wilson either but lets face it he is a much better fielder (even though he made a big boo- last nite) than Uggla and the way Uggla is hitting anything would be an improvement. They should trade him for anything, just get rid of his payroll and put Prado back on 2B where he belongs.
June 30th, 201211:44 am
why was medlon in the minors if he isn’t going to used in the rotation. He’s better then Minor or Delgado. As soon as I saw the matchups this series I automatically chalked up 2 losses. We need to get someone and fast before the division is lost
June 30th, 201211:51 am
HOF 10—-. We have some great prospects playing now and some more about ready
I would like to know who they are, Teheran, our no. 1 prospect gave up 9 runs on 10 hits in 4 innings Thursday nite, he gets worse every start and the Gwinnette and Mississippi Baves have been getting the dog crap beat out of them every night. I agree with you though we do need to rebuild by resigning Bourn, sigh Heyward, Prado, Freeman , Simmons, Kimbrel and Hanson to long term contracts, the rest should go.

Braves front office is walking the thin line between trying to contend for a division title and re-building the team for success in the future. If you go the re-building route you will alienate part of the fan base and attendance at the TED will suffer. The other option would be to go all in ,package your prospects and go after another starting pitcher and everyday OF to hit in the middle of the batting order.If you go all in this year you may have a short term gain and excite the fanbase ,but you still have to win to make it worth trading away the prospects.
