3rd dang it… An Idjiot got 1st. Nice read DOB
August 12th, 20127:11 pm
Nats sure made it interesting, but they lost. They lost. They actually lost.
August 12th, 20127:12 pm
Who cares if your first?
August 12th, 20127:15 pm
Oh DOB – great write-up, fail on the link to Tom Waits:

The prize for 1st is unknown, unspecified…..and classified [read: 1 is the loneliest number that you'll ever see]
Repost from old blog.
August 12th, 2012
BRAVES 15-1 when MEDS starts, and FREDI with his great [wisdom?] is going to replace him with TOMMY. Smart MGR we have. FREDI, are you going to start TOMMY in the play-in game?
Tommy Hanson is coming back way too soon. I hate that, because you know Medlen will get the short end of the stick.
August 12th, 20127:17 pm
Sweep away the mets.
August 12th, 20127:18 pm
Next…better than first.
Nats lose so we will too now?
Nobody pays attention to each other around here unless you say something they don’t like. That’s why there are so many haters, because they know they’ll get responses that way.
We must win division. It would be a disaster for us to be in the play-in gamr with FREDI as MGR.

I liked the Romeo Is Bleeding movie, Real mean female baddie
August 12th, 20127:21 pm
Chatt hits the nail on the head regarding the blog!!
did CTB just post sumthang???
If you’re going by our record on the national stage for the last 17 years…..
…it’s not too good. Not good at all. We fold like a cheap suit on national broadcasts.
August 12th, 20127:22 pm
CTB, I don’t like you posting those numbers!
August 12th, 20127:23 pm
Watching closing ceremony program…..lots of highlights of 30th Olympiad…..Hope Solo cupped her hands and blocked a kick that was so lo….hope she be ok
Does anyone know our record over the past 3 season when we are on ESPN Sunday night baseball?
August 12th, 20127:26 pm
Hanson needs one more rehab start. No need rushing this. We’ve got the hosses to cover for the next five games. Delay the decision.
Baseball Tonight is talking about Nats saying they are gonna shut down Strasburg. Yet to be seen so we’ll see.
If a team were really going to do this and shut down their best young pitcher why wouldn’t they hold him out at the beginning of the year then start throwing him so he can throw in the playoffs.
August 12th, 20127:27 pm
@ChattTownBrian…..We need people on the blog who hold the light…..you are an insightful and interesting fan of our Braves…..and, you share your Moon Pies accordingly.
August 12th, 20127:29 pm
Delay the decision.
Like forever, MEDLAN is going to be hurt by FREDI, MEDS does his best , then gets dumped on.
Nobody pays attention to each other around here unless you say something they don’t like.
My thoughts exactly…
CTB shares his moon pies? oh well, in that case i will be nicer to him and pay attention to what he says….
August 12th, 20127:31 pm
ChattTownBrian is a good poster, I enjoy reading him.
I want a moon pie.
August 12th, 20127:32 pm
how much did brian pay you for that comment george?
August 12th, 20127:35 pm
prolly a whole package fulla moon pies
Not enough nolie, lol
I think if I hear “mammo” one more time I’m going to puke! Maybe old Chipper, who coined the phrase, has a tittie complex.
August 12th, 20127:39 pm
Lets win Braves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
August 12th, 20127:40 pm
August 12th, 2012
Well at least in the past he liked HOOTERS a lot.
August 12th, 20127:42 pm
Let’s go, Bravos! Team is playing good…too bad the gNats are playing great. They have to cool off a bit!
August 12th, 20127:45 pm
I can’t believe Captain Mudd remembers I worked at the Chatt. Bakery. Wow, great memory.
George is just a wise man, nolie. He knows a wise mind when he sees it.
“CTB” you forgot to add “or say something they disagree with in principle or philosophy”, then you get ridiculed, chided, chastised, mocked, belittled, and called “fool” or “idiot” by those who think they have been on here long enough to deserve that right, or think they know more, or better, than anyone else. I could list names but they know who they are, and that would be somewhat immature wouldn’t it? That’s why I don’t say anymore than I do. It’s sorta like the “LUIWEJGJKPLASWECBPEOWYRT crowd”. If you don’t agree with them, you are a bigot or something worse.
August 12th, 20127:47 pm
Freeman and JHey are looking like a bright future right now.
GO BRAVES. 3.5 after tonight.
Banana flavor moon pie is delicious. My wife likes the vanilla.
August 12th, 20127:48 pm
IS “ITISI” and “ACE” THE SAME POSTER?
August 12th, 20127:49 pm
I do not like the Sunday ESPN thing
Outta here for game. LETS GET A WIN TONIGHT.
August 12th, 20127:50 pm
I think Trey has to be the most sane blogger here. Everybody else is a little out there, including me. Efrim and Lew are pretty level, too.
Tell the truth Kemosabe.
It’s sad but, that’s the way it is.
August 12th, 20127:51 pm
DOB — Great blog on Freeman… which brings me to ask you about Ernesto Mejia, the 1B slugger at Gwinnett which hit No. 24 today in Hanson’s good start. Mejia is 26 and seems to be getting stronger and stronger, hittingt .300+ all year. Do the Braves lose control over him at the end of the season? Obviously, Freeman has a lock on 1B so any chance he could tried at LF or 3B? Seems like he could be a good trading chip if he has no realistic future in Atlanta. What’s your take? Thanks for the great read, as always.
August 12th, 20127:53 pm
ridiculed, chided, chastised, mocked, belittled,
I need to work on my belittling skills – they have been shoddy of late…
Chris from the Rock
Schilling just predicted the Braves won’t make the playoffs on BBTN. He should stick to running video game companies into the ground.
August 12th, 20127:54 pm
We were just summarily dismissed from any playoff berth by the baseball tonight gang…zero respect for us. Not surprised but they can kiss my ass, especially Mr Bankrupt, Schilling…
August 12th, 20127:56 pm
Schilling is a blowhard fool. Who cares what he says.
We’re the ‘hated’ Braves. You expect anything different? They hate us…..always have.
August 12th, 20127:57 pm
August 12th, 2012
Yup I also am a little out there and go a little to far at times.
That catch by Rajai Davis….awesome!
He went UP for that one.
August 12th, 20127:58 pm
I was about to ask what kind of moron subjects his decades younger better half to Doo Wop Love Songs on PBS just so he can catch a couple of glimpses of Cousin Brucie – but apparently the kind who was protecting her from having to make her 3rd rant of the night about Curt Schilling…

August 12th, 20128:00 pm
Im so glad the Nats finally lost!!
August 12th, 20128:01 pm
Chipper kinda hinted he’d like to be next hitting coach when Francona gets his next managing job
August 12th, 20128:02 pm
Were those the ESPN broadcasters? All 3 seemed kinda positive on the team – gotta check my signal, couldn’t have been complimentary comments.
August 12th, 20128:04 pm
August 12th, 2012
PRAY that it is here. Now outta here for game. LETS GET A WIN TONIGHT.
August 12th, 20128:05 pm
Tito managing Braves would be nice to see really
August 12th, 20128:07 pm
Yes, because he would never lead a collapse…
Nice job, Michael!!!
August 12th, 20128:08 pm
Prado is due for a homer.
I hate it when the division champ ends up with a worse record than the wildcard team(s) and that’s what it looks like is going to happen this year. Giants and Dodgers both way back there. There should be some kind of adjustment for that. I don’t know what, but something. Dang it, give’em a handicap. One loss going into the playoffs!
August 12th, 20128:09 pm
Wants to face the lefty Not a wise move (I hope)
Wow, did Schilling really say the Braves wouldn’t make the playoffs or just not win the division?
If the playoffs that is insane. Got to be called out on that one. What a azzhat.
August 12th, 20128:10 pm
Eric Gregg in heaven “those are strikes ump”
Please, God… do not lose this game Braves.
August 12th, 20128:11 pm
August 12th, 20128:12 pm
Uh – Martin? You’re supposed to follow – don’t make excuses Tito.
August 12th, 20128:13 pm
not a great inning
Well that hurts, Heyward’s AB really hurt.
Fredi’s fault for letting Chipper play…
Would have been nice for Prado to follow Bourn…bad baserunning.
August 12th, 20128:14 pm
Killer of a first inning for the Braves. Shades of the past few years with runners on 1st and 2nd with nobody out. Strikeout and DP = no runs
Yes, Schilling pronounced the Nats division winners, and Dodgers and Pirates wild card winners.
Hope that top half isn’t a precursor to the rest of the game.
Oh well, at least we won the series right?
August 12th, 20128:15 pm
Hanson solid in rehab start; now it’s decision time
I agree with Martin not running on Bourn’s steal. I would image in that case catchers probably think they have a better chance of getting Prado at 2B than Bourn
August 12th, 20128:16 pm
Just don’t get any worse than that. Runners first and third, one out, and CJ hits into a DP! Wow! Have the Braves offended Lady Karma?
August 12th, 20128:17 pm
Good for Hanson. I hope all our pitchers make it a hard decision for the powers that be
August 12th, 20128:18 pm
Just don’t get any worse than that.
Bases loaded, none out?
Too many pitches….bring in martinez
Not as good…
May have been good baserunning b/c obviously he didn’t know Bourn was gonna get a walking lead and take the base.
August 12th, 20128:19 pm
Typical Braves blowing a first inning chance to score.
August 12th, 20128:20 pm
We didn’t get the bases loaded did we?
Bring back KK
