No problem, jeffrey d.
July 5th, 20128:44 pm
Boy he put that one on a Tee for that guy
No Harm in that Ball that was hit to Underground Atlanta, Id rather see that as opposed to a walk
yep i was thinking the same thing.
July 5th, 20128:45 pm
You’d rather see a homerun than a walk. Ok.
July 5th, 20128:46 pm
Nice catch, Marteen!
That’s my Pardo.
July 5th, 20128:47 pm
Bourn was flying !!
Minor has been effective, but has gone to plenty of deep counts. Especially frustrating is that 3-2 counts he works after jumping ahead 0-2.
July 5th, 20128:48 pm
Hey, we can still vote for Bourn. Maybe they’ll do a recount
T, you sound like you’ve had too many Samuel Jacksons.
Did Uggla say which July 5th he hopes is a turning point? It does not look like the 2012 July 5th.
Minor’s allowed 1 hit and 1 walk in 5 innings..I don’t think we have too much to complain about there
July 5th, 20128:49 pm
so whats the vote? Do we want garza?
Garza lifted after giving up 5 runs, 5 hits in 4 innings, 3 walks, 6 K, 94 pitches
July 5th, 20128:50 pm
Don Sutton is going on vacation and Murph is going to join Jim Powell if any of you were concerned.
Was Garza lifted because he’s been traded? Because Frank Wren saw the game and said “I need to have that guynow!”
McFann :Ô: :Ô: :ô:
nolie Do we want garza?
Do the Nationals want him…?
Prado is a player. Lefty going away. Just go that way with it
why was freddie f hitting mac on the but with his bat?
No way, nolie.
Only one run, only one hit. I’d say Minor’s been pretty good so far.
July 5th, 20128:51 pm
.227? I think Dave Kingman was an all-star once with numbers like that…
I love seeing Straight A’s on the Game Summary picture
Good job, Jason!!!
Nice JHey! And good heads up running by Teen!!
Bourn and Prado both over 100 hits on the season. Uggla is in the ASG game. Whats wrong with this picture.
That ball should have been caught by Barney.
JHey is a player. All the folks from last year fussing on him when he was hurting – Quiet
What if we’re playing Oakland?
July 5th, 20128:52 pm
Okay, Fab 5, do it again with 2 on
Good to see Jason with a 2-hit night.
I want the Nationals to have Garza. That would be awesome.
Chop Chop — Wasn’t Barney there.
July 5th, 20128:53 pm
Barney would have a hard time catching anyhting between the lines right now. He’s in the dugout
Or, Mac, you could do it again with 2 on this time.
July 5th, 2012
Greinke or Dempster ..
No Samuel Jacksons Tonight! I’m on the Wine with Crablegs
The Samuel Jackson’s Will be “On Deck!” For That Great American Bash In Philly This Weekend….
Nice Sac Fly Mac
July 5th, 20128:54 pm
Put it in play = RBI
BMac with the sac!!!
Too bad we couldn’t see it…
good on Mac, sac fly against a lefty
Do Braves have all-time great outfield? by David Schoenfield
We are getting hammered in North Georgia with rain, hail you name it. I hope it’s not headed to ATL.
July 5th, 20128:55 pm
Good pitching by Garza in this inning. He is making a comeback.
He is 0-1 or 0-2 because he takes too many pitches.
Terrible AB by Bret Boone.
July 5th, 20128:56 pm
Wine with crablegs? Do you have to keep it in a cage? Must be a mutation fron the oil spill, huh.
All I gotta Say is
All will be Redeemed if Ugg can Beat up on the Curley W’s and Philly in the second half…
not another k for uggla no.
No prob, Queen, anytime! Did you really think Minor getting a no hitter? hahaha
called strike, swinging strike, ball outside, swinging strike three
Dan Uggla, 2012 All-Star second baseman for your Atlanta Braves.
Dan Uggla has to be the worst hitter in the league. My goodness he is a walking out.
ACE, where in North Georgia? We’re getting nothing in my area and I’m north kinda central.
July 5th, 20128:57 pm
Wow -Dee Gordon out 6 weeks with thumb issues…
N Nine — Thanks! And…No, not at all!
July 5th, 20128:58 pm
“710 career OPS. Michael Bourn. This is why we chop.”
Good read about the Braves outfield. Thanks for the link.
S/O to BG4life
Did you kick it @the Lake? Ur Closer to The Lake Than I am…
Minor needs to get through the 6th unscathed.
July 5th, 20128:59 pm
The Dodgers have been hit hard with injuries this season.
Rome Georgia area. Berry College.
July 5th, 20129:00 pm
A major reason all three rate so well is both systems see them as outstanding defensive players. FanGraphs’ defensive metric — UZR — ranks Bourn, Heyward and Prado first, second and fourth among all NL position players. Baseball-Reference uses Defensive Runs Saved and ranks all three in the top 11. Bourn is a legitimate top-flight center fielder, Heyward gets good reads and has one of the better arms around and while I haven’t seen enough of Prado in left field, Braves fans assure me he’s that excellent as well. While none are what I would label superstars at the plate, they rank 15th, 18th and 22nd in the NL in wOBA. But all three are also excellent baserunners, so it’s their all-around skills that make them so special.
July 5th, 20129:01 pm
Okay, west side then. Wish we’d get some rain over here. Tuesday night was not enough.
Im liking this Dejesus Cat, Dont be suprised if hes in our OF next year to replace Bourn
July 5th, 20129:02 pm
I thank you Dan, sincerely; your efforts at the plate are appreciated….just thought I’d let you know my Grandma thinks you’re a ‘cutie.’ Also, I am in my forties and, tonight after that last K, is the first time I ever heard her curse like a drunk sailor.
July 5th, 20129:03 pm
Well, Minor got through the 6th basically unscathed.
Best start by a Braves Pitcher in atleast 10 days?
July 5th, 20129:04 pm
Hey there’s Tomahawkin dancing!
Nice effort by Minor. I say that should be the end of his evening.
July 5th, 20129:05 pm
Sophee- “That’s my Pardo.”
“Well, tell him what he’s won, Don.”
“Art, he’s won these fabulous parting gifts: a set of the Encyclopedia Britanica, a case of Turtle Wax, and a year’s supply of Rice-a-Roni, the San Francisco Treat.”
This rain coming down should make all the Farmers and everyone else happy. The first place Rome braves are out of town. The Rome Braves had a miserable first half but are off to a real good start in the second.
Simmons starting to slow down with the bat
July 5th, 20129:06 pm
Best start by a Braves Pitcher in atleast 10 days?
Minor has given us a chance in both his home starts, in some pretty tough heat his first one. Guy has talent. It’d be nice if he used it more than once every blue moon.
July 5th, 20129:07 pm
Well no wonder; he’s sitting next to Wilson
July 5th, 20129:08 pm
nolie–This is when we find out if the kid can make adjustments. I think I like his chances…
July 5th, 20129:09 pm
The Cubs defensive positioning is impeccable. In the two series they have played against the Braves I bet they have stolen 10 hits from the Braves.
Minor has to run the bases.
Powderfinger — I like Simmons chances too.
lol at that 902 post
Time for Bourn to hit one. Doesn’t have to go out, just get through.
July 5th, 20129:11 pm
How many times have we gone through the order tonight (so far)?
July 5th, 20129:12 pm
Did you see that guy?
Must be his 1st game?
with this lead Minor should not be running IMO
BravesQueen—Every positive thought you have is a good thing, whether it be about Simmons, or, well you know. Keep up the good fight…
July 5th, 20129:13 pm
That’ll work, Mikey!
Powderfinger speaks truth Queen. God bless.
July 5th, 20129:14 pm
I love the Bourn walk.
Prado rakes against south paws
Nats are losing 5-1 to the Giants in the bot 7.
Mets are losing 5-4 to the Phillies in the top 8.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
