Great to see us only two down in the loss column this a.m. Let’s keep it up. i want to see a 9-1 record in the past 10 games in the newspaper at the end of this home-stand.
August 4th, 20128:21 am
Oops, feed-bag time. Be back in a few.
August 4th, 20128:24 am
Yeah, when we say we should sweep this series, for once, it’s absolutely true!
August 4th, 20129:13 am
There’s a new blog.
August 4th, 20129:29 am
Venice, little jumpy? I wasn’t refering to you, I was talking about the blog in general and how some disappear during winning streaks.

August 4th, 201211:08 am
CTB – we kid because we love (really – I obviously misread your post – sorry). And I was just poking fun at the small sample size lovers with the Greinke commentary…
August 4th, 201211:25 am
Interesting article from NYT..
“Why D.C. Is Doing So Well”
A SPORTS team obviously cannot create a civic renaissance. But when a city and a team happen to go on a good run at the same time, it can be particularly sweet, and it’s happened more often than you might think…… http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/05/sunday-review/why-washington-is-doing-so-well.html?hp

Kat – focal blog changed over night – people on the Chipper, Hudson story…
August 4th, 201211:34 am
Fired up about’cha Prado, keep the MoJo goin’. Prado Bravo Company!
August 4th, 201211:36 am
Got Me Fired UP! DOB! Got me goin’ Big man! Bravo Co.
Entering his Braves debut tonight, Maholm is 1-1 with a 1.62 ERA in six starts at Turner Field, his best ERA at any ballpark where he’s pitched more than once.
He’s allowed one homer in 39 innings at Turner Field, with 36 strikeouts and eight walks.
August 4th, 201212:01 pm
Double-header washed-out in D-VILLE yesterday.
The Mousekaters lose a protracted battle with the STANKEES-rookies 6-7. RATS!
RHSP ROBERTO ESTRELLA [L 1-3, 6.60 ERA] 3.0 IP, 5 H, 1 HR, 7 R, 6 ER, 4 BB, 1 SO.
LHRP ERIK CORDIER [0.00 ERA] 0.1 no-hits, 2 BB, 1 SO.
ERIK CORDIER is on the 40-man, but I think his days as a BRAVE are numbered. Yesterday in ORLANDO he issued two walks then recorded the first out in the fourth with a SO. After that he was shut-down, and pulled from the bump. He’s been battling extended injuries of unknown origin evidently.
RHRP MIKE FLORES [4.76 ERA] 2.0 IP, no-hits, 3 BB, 2 SO.
RHRP PAT SCROGGIN [0.00 ERA] 1.2 IP, 1 H, zeros, 2 SO.
HOKIE-HOKIE high. RICHMONDER SCROGGINS is off and running after extended ST on the back-lots.
Rookie LHRP BRANDON ROHDE [1.08 ERA] 2.0 IP, pristine, 3 SO.
The rook’s have a fine initial season.
RF JOEY MENSES [,291 BA] 1-3, 2 R, 1 BB.
C TONY NUNEZ [.233 BA] 1-2, 1 R, 1 2B , 1 BB.
3B MIKE DODIG [.173 BA] 2-4, 1 R, 1 2B , 1 HR , 5 RBI , 1 SO.
DODIG has really struggled this initial campaign, but the BRAVES are sticking with his bat. He finally seems to be making some head-way. Best game of the season yesterday.
EMMANUEL DANIEL [.180 BA] 1-4, 1 R, 1 2B .
Rookie 2B K.C. CLABOUGH [.414 BA] 2-4, 1 2B , 1 RBI , 1 SB , 1 SO.
KC was overmatched in ROME, and since being sent down to ORLANDO, he’s been in and out of the line-up, but when in it, he’s been pretty good. In nine games in the GCL, he’s 7-13 with three doubles, two RBI’s, 4 BB, and only three SO’s.
August 4th, 201212:04 pm
Looking forward to the last series MAHOLM vs. MORTON. Both should have the adrenaline flowing.
August 4th, 201212:12 pm

August 4th, 20122:31 pm
I’m sure a bunch of people have posted this already. But HA!
Lowe was cut by the Indians, hahaha
August 4th, 20122:47 pm
@richbrave; Keep those minor league reports a’ comin’; very helpful, either it’s you, ralph, anybody, very much appreciated. & the one & only DOB – still undefeated.
August 4th, 20122:55 pm
@richbrave; sorry to bother ya, but I know I often speak of Gattis & more recently Mejia, 2 young Thumpers, just wonder’n, if the Bravos ever needed their services, would you think they would be ready? I kinda look at ‘em as our version of what the angels have out of their 2 young thumpers, Trumbo & Trout. Though I know their much younger. I also look at ‘em in comparison to ARZ’s Goldschmidt & Boston’s young 3B thumper who’s mak’n headlines. You’re thoughts & if you’ve seen them play any?
August 4th, 20123:03 pm
Man O’ Man; If Uggla gets his zone squared up, mind clear, hit it where’s it’s pitched,(& he has done it in the past) He’s a beast. Here’s hope’n for it Uggs. Pull’n for ya, ya muscle milk. Might have to slow up on it son so you give those guns a rest. Ya can still tater’em out of there bud. Need you’re flexibility there bud. Don’t give in to there pitches, Dannyboy look for you’rs cuz’.
August 4th, 20123:39 pm
BRAVES LINEUP: Bourn cf, Prado lf, Heyward rf, Jones 3b, Freeman 1b, McCann c, Uggla 2b, Janish ss, Maholm lhp
August 4th, 20123:46 pm
MEJIA has performed exceptionally well in GWINNETT. In fact, there has been no appreciable drop off in his production between last season in AA and this one. His BB-SO ratio has eroded from roughly 1 BB-2.8 SO [58 BB-156 SO] to 1 BB-3.5 SO [29 BB-104 SO] this year. SO’s might be the only major concern I could see in ATLANTA. If his patience improves a notch or two I’d say he’s prime-time.
Because of EVAN’s set-back with the wrist injury, I think a call-up in September might be in order. But assuming we’re in a tight pennant race I’d say this won’t happen this year. Like MEJIA, GATTIS’ age creates a short shelf-like in the minors. I’d say GATTIS is sent to AAA next season with a healed wrist, and if he responds, he could see some time in ATLANTA in mid to late 2013.
JOEY T. our other masher, will need another full year between AA and GWINNETT in my estimation, but should show well next season as he’s improving significantly at the plate in MISSISSIPPI. His glove will undoubtedly keep him chained to the bench if or when he arrives in ATLANTA sometime in mid-late 2014.
CF TODD CUNNINGHAM has cooled a bit the past week, but is having a break-out season in PEARL RIVER. Not tremendous power, but solid defense, and he will hit for average in ATLANTA in 2013-14.
Of course, with young men who knows what the eventuality will ultimately be. But you asked, so that’s my take.
August 4th, 20123:49 pm
I believe i caught CUNNINGHAM last fall in the AZL. Looked pretty good. He’s improved at the plate since then.
The others unfortunately, no I haven’t seen them. Have missed the AAA MLBN games this season thusly haven’t seen MEJIA much to my chagrin.
August 4th, 20123:50 pm
August 4th, 20123:55 pm
Your mention of RED SOX up and comer’s reminds that one RICHMOND-area youngster JACKIE BRADLEY Jr. [SOUTH CAROLINA alum] is on the way up the BOSOX food-chain. He’s in AA PORTLAND after torching the CAROLINA League. He’s cooled a bit in AA, but I would not be at all surprised to see him arrive as a lead-off hitter for them in late 2014.
