whats sad is that we now know we have the money to sign greinke, yet we coulldn’t come up with the the 27 million needed to obtain beltran for 2012 and 13. no guarantees but if that move had been made
we’d be 5 in front of washington now, instead of 5 behind
July 13th, 20126:58 pm
Question for all you trade speculation ‘experts.’ lol
Besides the big mid-season McGriff acquisition way back when, has there been an acquisition that put us ‘over the top’ since then?
July 13th, 20127:00 pm
Heyman saying on MLB the Braves, Rangers or Angels will get Greinke.
most do not mixxo, but once in a while……..
July 13th, 20127:01 pm
can’t see the Braves hanging in with those teams at salary level, and don’t really want them too quite truthfully

7 lbs 1 ounce…
Born 2:03 pm…
July 13th, 20127:05 pm
Just got a call back from Howie McCann, proud grandfather of Colt Michael McCann, who was born today at 2:03 p.m., a healthy boy weighing in at 7 pounds one ounce. Ashley was induced last night and spent the night in the hospital…..Brian plans to spend tonight with his wife and new son, catch up on his rest after an eventful night and return to action tomorrow with the Braves.
congrats to the McCann family
Aw, middle name same as his Daddy’s!!… ♥
July 13th, 20127:06 pm
I guess we need to keep an eye on the minor league games tonight to see if anybody gets pulled from the game with a trade looming….
Yeah, that was kinda what I was thinking concerning Ryan. Let him and Wilson split time (or whomever gets hot with the bat starts) while Simmons is recup’ing and then see which one you want as your backup for 2013.
And Ryan has played all positions except for C and 1B in his major league career. (not sure if he has played CF though………. but he might be a good utility guy to have around. And plays very good D.
July 13th, 20127:07 pm
THANKS, Ms. Rogers!!! ♥
I think I’m gonna get choked up…:)
“7 lbs 1 ounce…” – VJ
Not for long!
July 13th, 20127:08 pm
Brendan Ryan wouldn’t cost much at all. Middling prospect at best.
July 13th, 20127:09 pm
Now Baby Huey has his own “Baby Huey!”
Congrats Mac and family! Kids are great……… well most of the time.
WILSON will have to play with only his first name, PASTORNICKY remains in AAA.
July 13th, 20127:10 pm
Congrats to McCann!!!!
July 13th, 20127:11 pm
now that the baby is here maybe Mac can loose somea that extra weight….
July 13th, 20127:12 pm
I was just going to ask why BRIAN not playing. Good for the MCCANN’S
July 13th, 20127:14 pm
What part of Pastornicky is a failure at Shortstop do some people not get? Sheesh! I am glad some of these so-called knowitalls aren’t in charge of this Team! that kid never needs to see Turner Field again!
July 13th, 20127:15 pm
MLB network will broadcast “The life and death of Darryl Kile” again tomorrow at 5pm. I highly recommend to DVR if you can. Costas narrates and really well documentation of what a outstanding guy he was on and off the field. LaRussa is interviewed in length as well as Jocketty and they are very candid.
Kile left behind 3 children including 5 yr old boy and girl twins and was only 33 when he passed. I have 5 yr twins(boy and girl) and man it got me choked up watching this. Good story, well written and sounds like a really quality guy that left way too soon.
July 13th, 20127:16 pm
Congrats to Mac and his Wife on the baby! now get your butt back in there The Braves need that hot bat!
July 13th, 20127:18 pm
I’m sure not seeing anybody touting the Braves to call back up Pastornicky? What are you complaining about?
July 13th, 20127:19 pm
Congrats to the Macs!
July 13th, 20127:20 pm
I’m not near a TV. Do we have any update on the weather or if there is a new start time?
July 13th, 20127:25 pm

I’ve decided today I’m boycotting the Olympics this year, simply because the uniforms are made in China. THAT is ASININE! Even both the Dems and Repubs are together on this one. One senator did some checking and said if all the pieces were made in the USA, it would keep $1 billion in this country!
Besides, I don’t like the Olympic Committee’s attitude about it today, when asked about it. BTW, this may not be Braves, but it is sports. Just a little off topic, but now I’m mad and had to say it. What is wrong with these people?
AGREED 100% buy American.
July 13th, 20127:26 pm
I hope we do get Vargas. I hope for all the ladies because they dig the long ball.
I’m jonesin’ so hard for some baseball….I’m watching the Yanks & Halos.
July 13th, 20127:27 pm
Kevin McAlpin @KevinMcAlpin
Tarp off, ground crew working on field. Looks like we should be ok! *fingers crossed*
Weird, if we have a boy we were thinking about going with the name Colton.
July 13th, 20127:29 pm
I don’t know the status of the trade talks but isn’t a little weird the Braves are so open about wanting to trade for a guy. to the point where they’d rather play with an open roster spot while waiting for the trade? It doesn’t seem like that would leave you with much negotiating leverage. Maybe the trade is done but the other team wanted one more game out of their player. It just all seems odd to me.
July 13th, 20127:30 pm
Beavis is a good name for a boy too!
July 13th, 20127:31 pm
I don’t see the Darryl Kile special on MLB tomorrow at 5pm.
July 13th, 20127:32 pm
So happy for Brian and Ashley McCann and new baby Colt Michael. I love that name! Mac Daddy is going to be a great father!
“Get Out The WAYYYY!!!! Boom!
Pretty Boy Coming Through! Me and My Crew, We Swaggin In The Room!”
Whats Up All?
July 13th, 20127:34 pm
Brendan Ryan is AWFUL…He’s Jack Wilson. Why would we trade for someone we already have on our roster?
Scutaro or Bloomquist or nothing….Carroll or Fontenot would be better than Wilson…BUT NOT RYAN
Braves Will Take 2 out of 3 this weekend, Bank On It!
July 13th, 20127:35 pm
Sondra- just looked on the website and it is showing the program at 5pm on the 14th
Flande only recorded two outs in his start for Gwinnett tonight: 0.2 IP 7hits 6 Runs 2 home runs
Hard to believe he was mentioned on here by some for a bullpen spot.
My great nephew’s name is Colton Ryan.
July 13th, 20127:36 pm
July 13th, 20127:37 pm
Congrats to Mac and family! Go Braves!
LaRoche HR gives Nats the early lead…
Okay, Huddy. No 4-run first inning tonight. How about a no-run first inning?
Feel better soon, ‘drelton.
S/O to Tomahawkin!
Lets go Huddy!
Where is the game????
July 13th, 20127:38 pm
Anyone’s MLB TV not working? It says game will start soon but it doesnt go live
July 13th, 20127:39 pm
S/O’s to UNCBrave, Phil, and Mixxo and BG4Life
It really sucks hearing Jack Wilson is in the Lineup FOREVER! (That what its gonna feel like until Lil Andy Gets Back)
let’s go hey yall.
I think we should always buy American whenever we have the option and the cost is not prohibitive. We are helping our economy and creating American jobs to make more goods. Until a few months ago, I was not even in the habit of looking at whatever I bought to see where it was made, I just bought what I needed at the time. However, many times there is a choice of whatever you are buying, if it is made here or in China, Taiwan, or some other foreign country. In that situation you have a choice and I think Buy American is the right thing to do. I sell collectibles on eBay and have for 14 years and the past couple of years is the slowest it has ever been. It picked up for awhile earlier this year, but now has dropped to almost nothing. Folks are still hurting and don’t have the disposable income they used to have. Just my 2 cents.
July 13th, 20127:40 pm
Location issues early here. He’ll straighten them out.
My Mlb.tv says the same thing.
July 13th, 20127:42 pm
MLB TV still on break….damn…someone call customer support…i live outside the US
MLB.TV is saying This game will begin shortly….
July 13th, 20127:43 pm
No worries for Huddy
‘Can’t wait!’ for Andy to get back in there. It’ll be a new season. Guy is just phenomenal.
Cody Martin, 3 IP, 0 hits, 0 BB’s and 5 K’s so far tonight….
Scutaro will cost more in the way of prospects (though I do like him a lot) and he has a much higher salary. Bloomquist is not as good of a defensive SS with 1 year left on his contract after this year at almost 2 million per.
Fontenot has no range…………. think Pastornicky. Carroll, I know little about but I think he is getting a bit long in the tooth and is not really much better of a hitter than Ryan.
Ryan has a very good SS glove. If Wilson can’t start (stamina or whatever), which if the Braves are looking for a replacement it must be true; then Ryan would be a good addition that wouldn’t cost much in the way of prospects or $$.
We’re talking about a 6-8 week proposition here.
None of the games are working on MLB.TV and I called customer support and they were unable to answer the phone due to “a high volume of phone calls.”
what is wrong with mlbtv?????
Good positioning because at first I just knew it was in centerfield and the Mets with a lead.
July 13th, 20127:44 pm
Well, Huddy got through that one unscathed.
Hi everyone! Prayers to Mac and family for safe and happy new child. Like those uniforms Braves are sporting…..Now let’s go Bravos!
Pastornicky dives and gets hit in the elbow on that play.
Bozo ( The Clown )
July 13th, 20127:45 pm
thank you douchebag ken for that enlightening rant.. america isn’t as cool as it used to be, i want to live in australia.. glee is the most popular tv show.. enough said..
“We’re talking about a 6-8 week proposition here.”
Which is pretty much a good chunk of the rest of the season, and this 6-8 week timetable is assuming he does not have to have surgery when the cast is removed in 4 weeks. So very best scenario is 6-8 weeks.
Young’s a tall drink o’ water.
July 13th, 20127:46 pm
Braves first round pick Lucas Sims is headed to higher rookie ball Danville, after 3 GS in Gulf Coast, 1.29 ERA, 1 ER in 7 IP, 2 hits
Re: USA Olympic uniforms being outsourced to China: The USA will rue the day it sent all this money to the China which we should never forget is a communist military dictatorship. They are taking a lot of that money to build up their military. Their goal is to replace the USA as the dominate military and economic force in the world. We have been so shortsighted and stupid in this regard.
July 13th, 2012
have you ever been right with your predictions?
mlbtv busted here too. says game will begin shortly on all the games except cubs. grrrrrrrrrrr
Even MLB Audio is failing to connect for me.
Is Jason Bartlett actually playing? He could be an option
July 13th, 20127:47 pm
Good start for Mikey!
At the risk of someone saying this is political, I’d say the best thing that could be done to spur manufacturing in the US is to not demonize business. I, like most, am on a budget. I buy my stuff at Sam’s Club and Costco. I don’t look at labels, I look at price tags.
Way to go, Mikey!
Nice leadoff double, Bourn!
Damn it MLB.com
I want to watch the game
July 13th, 20127:48 pm
DS1, that wasn’t nice at all. You owe me an appology for that smart ass comment. Ass hole.
July 13th, 20127:49 pm
Didn’t Chris Young bodyslam someone when he was on the Padres? I seem to remember him getting into a fight.
I want a refund on MLB TV Upgrade to platinum….jaja
Moylan 1 strikeout in 1 inning in his first Rome appearance.
Gotta love the high chopped 70 footer
1-0 on a bouncer over the 6′10″ pitcher
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
