Sounds like that loud ass fat usher is on the job again tonight.
bragging rights?? what the he** is joe talking about…who is going to brag about winning a game in august
August 13th, 20128:30 pm
Looks like the 2011 offense is creeping back in.McCann,Uggla,Janish,and the pitcher.Back to a 5 man batting order.
Another example tonight of why i think we lose a one game wildcard matchup….
August 13th, 20128:31 pm
Nice job by J-Hey running it out
August 13th, 20128:32 pm
That was a lot closer at first than I thought possible when the ball popped away.
Sounds like the Perfect Game and No-Hitter bit the dust on that miscue.
Heyward in scoring position…………
To be more clear, why a one game deal scares me.
Generous hit for Jhey there.
Send Jhey here 0-2
August 13th, 20128:33 pm
They got a hit!
Great hustle as always by JHey, and nice hit, Chipper!
DS1 – funny – true, but funny.
THAT was a hit, not Heyward’s bouncer!
Don’t send Chipper here!!!
August 13th, 20128:34 pm
almost broke through that inning
Freeman just can’t lay off that first pitch.
Good job Freeman!
Keet it coming!
August 13th, 20128:35 pm
Bench Fat Freddie…
“Another example tonight of why i think we lose a one game wildcard matchup….”
Offense is too dang streaky for anyone to feel good about a one game wildcard game. We could hit a Verlander, Strasburg, Kershaw or a top pitcher like that one night then get shutout by a pitcher with a 5+ ERA.
According to the broadcast, Stults is great the first time through the order (.076 BA against) but stinks it up the second time. I wouldn’t call “BALLGAME” just yet.

David O’Brien @ajcbraves
it’s brutal RT @MitchGibbs11: @ajcbraves Its an usher?! Somebody get her supervisor in here!
Agree… it’s real bad. BAD.
Yep, seriously. Serious about what, I don’t know. But I must be, at any rate.
Wholesome result for Chipper and an impatient follow-up…….woeful
August 13th, 20128:37 pm
I’d expect Minor to be the one going to the bullpen at month’s end. Hanson is not going to the bullpen, just forget that option. So it’ll be either Medlen or Minor to the pen.
Minor not very sharp but he’s managing to get out of trouble without them adding on, hope he can at least keep them from adding on
August 13th, 20128:38 pm
This isn’t good
Keep pitching inside Minor – don’t mind the occasional hit batsman, but…2 on noone out, not a good start.
yeah – bunt a couple of more times, let the pitcher run.
Cut the pitcher down at 3rd on the bunt
Streaky gets us in multiple series as it is.
I don’t like the 1 game playoff for the Wild Card any more than anybody else, but why the doubt that we could win it? We have a pretty good record.
But heck, that’d force some of you folks to actually be a glass half full person I guess.
August 13th, 20128:40 pm
I know that the usher isn’t part of the U.S. Justice system, but this is cruel and unusual punishment… it’s against the law!
“You just got to tip your cap to those guys over there.”
Freeman swings at the first pitch almost 50% of the time. Now, who’s the idiot?
August 13th, 20128:41 pm
another broken bat hit
well i guess it’s time to backslide again
Buffet Brian with a nice pounce….
Mostly for naught…sigh.
Prado didn’t exactly try hard to catch that ball.
Good pitch – in on the hands, poor result. Good play to get the runner at 2nd.
August 13th, 20128:42 pm
Stop picking on the seniorplayer Pods
No he didnt…
2 days in a row we are getting killed by dinky little flares for hits!
August 13th, 20128:43 pm
Now let’s roll over and die so the Padres can win so this loss can work as motivation for the Nationals to win tonight too!!!
August 13th, 20128:44 pm
Just our history in deciding games. Horrible in last 10 yrs.
OK….the high socks aren’t working…..try something else.
August 13th, 20128:45 pm
Uggla leading off. What are the odds that it’s an automatic first out?
Dinky, crushed, matters not.
August 13th, 20128:46 pm
Lack of bats can kill your pitching. Wake up you slackers!
August 13th, 20128:47 pm
Alot of warning track power tonight…
August 13th, 20128:48 pm
August 13th, 20128:49 pm
I think these teams switched uniforms before the game started…
We can look so listless at times….
I blame Hinske.
August 13th, 20128:50 pm
welcome back beaves
David Carroll @DAVIDCARROLL3
Just turned on #Braves. Should’ve kept up with Padres this year. To me, their lineup looks like Chase Headley and 8 lucky fans.
We need some dinky flares.
August 13th, 20128:52 pm
Does anyone know if something is wrong with McCann? He seems to be back in a funk again so soon after getting better. Hope the Braves don’t bypass the Padres. Every game counts and they need to stay focused and win theses type of games! go Braves!
warning track power = big park + wind blowing in
This is unbelievable
August 13th, 20128:53 pm
difficult to take this team seriously…that might explain a 3/4 empty stadium.
Well, that wasn’t a bleeder – good baserunning too – this could get rough.
Alright, I’ll say it. Bourn dogged it after that ball.
This game is quickly getting out of hand.
Freeman’s average on first pitch balls in play is something like .540. Swing away big man.
“warning track power = big park + wind blowing in”
+ a streak offense= bad recipe for a win
August 13th, 20128:54 pm
Padres doing everything right….Braves look lifeless
The Mike Minor we know is back tonight.
August 13th, 20128:56 pm
unfortunately for the Braves, the Padre pen is nearly as bad as the Mets (5th best out of 16) so getting to their pen might not change much
Minor hasn’t been great, but you can’t win with no runs. Streaky offense at it again.
August 13th, 20128:58 pm
*isn’t nearly as bad.
they got behind early in Minor’s last start vs Hamels, and got shut them down. Got behind early last night, got shut down. Got behind early tonight … same thing
August 13th, 20129:01 pm
Chipper needs to lose those red shoes.
Shut out at home? Ok…let’s roll now guys
Through 5 innings the offense has ONE HIT – Minor wasn’t perfect, but he was pretty good, deserves better than he’s gotten his past 3 starts.
Braves O hasn’t scored when he’s pitched in about 21 innings??? (Consecutive) – Can that be right?
August 13th, 20129:02 pm
Wildcard team indeed.
It’s Monday. Braves have short pants instead of the curse-busting rolled up pants.
August 13th, 20129:03 pm
Glad I dont go to the park anymore. I said two months ago if we could switch managers I would want Black. Freddi moved Uggla up in the order because he hit in a few games. To me there both losers. Het Richards tomorrow another lost to a LH pitcher. 6 man rotation hell take Minor out they dont score any runs for him.
August 13th, 20129:04 pm
Not a single run the last 20 innings Minor has pitched. Did I hear that right?
High socks ain’t gonna help in this game. These guys are really flat tonight. Gonna find something else to do.
No need to worry about the Padres bullpen, this will be a complete game shutout by Stults, only at 68 pitches.
August 13th, 20129:05 pm
Seriously, it feels like we give up entirely too many hits to opposing pitchers while our pitchers get next to none. I’d like to see a stat on that — how many hits we’ve given up to opposing pitchers.
I really starting to think that the Braves play to the level of their competition.
August 13th, 20129:06 pm
come on chipper!!!
And if Heyward’s bouncer off Alonso’s glove was an error, then it should have been ruled an error on Chipper, too. Chipper didn’t even have to move to field the one hit to him.
Tina, so you think they would have scored if another pitcher was on the mound? They’ll score or won’t score regardless of who is on.
August 13th, 20129:07 pm
Come on, Chipper….
Braves pitchers, including Huddy, have been dreadful at the plate this year.
I was looking for a logical explanation for what is happening tonight, and I think I found it. The Padres have a 24-35 road record. That explains it right there.
August 13th, 20129:08 pm
Finally some stressful pitches for this guy.
So close. Thought Chipper was going to get ahold of one.
August 13th, 20129:09 pm
To the warning track once more…better start finding some holes with groundballs.
9 more outs to get 3 runs
August 13th, 20129:10 pm
Well so much for the second time through the lineup theory.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
