[...] other late night news in case you missed it, about Matt Diaz being out for the rest of the season in all likelihood, now that he’s facing surgery on his thumb. And wasn’t that Derek Lowe I saw [...]

There’s a lot of crap posted in all the blogs. Diaz played the game with respect for it and the fans. He has always given everything he had, and I respect his efforts. He has been fun to watch, especially against the Marlins.
My hope is the surgery works and the Braves give Diaz a chance to earn a roster spot next year. Someone who can fill in and pinch hit is always valuable. He knows there are no guarantees but that’s the way he has lived most of his career.
Best of luck with the surgery and get well soon.

Larry, hook up with your brethren alexis and take a big old pull on one of his sugar binkies… You are hands down the bitterest crybaby to ever come down the pike… I’ve come to believe that you weren’t really as great a player as you claim… anyone who says they played at as high a level as you do, and still show such pathetic ignorance of the game, is nothing but a professional delusionist… Why don’t you just take your incessant whining and go root for your own fantasy team…. God, what a total crybaby…

When they traded for Reed Johnson that was the end of the season for Diaz, with or without surgery.

Diaz’s problem with his thumb should have been taken care of last year or at least the first of this year. If you have a bad thumb, you can not grip the bat-thus you can not hit. Why do players continue to play hurt and why do stupid managers keep trying to play injured players. It never works out for the good–except for Kirk Gibson. Braves brought B-Mac back early last year and lost a chance for the playoffs because he could not swing the bat–doing the same thing with this year with his shoulder problem. A healthy Ross is much better than an injured B-Mac.

Braves and thUGA fans will find a way to interject Obama into every blog.

best of luck matty, this braves fan hopes he can come back next year and be part of the team. guys like he and hinske are important parts of the ball club as pinch hitters and able to give starters a day off. from what I have read they are good guys in the locker room as well. Pro sports could use more Matt Diaz’s

To all the Sutton haters….it could be worse. We could be listening to Tim “Never Shuts Up” McCarver call games…. Good luck Diaz. Thanks for everything…

Jablomie …absolutely correct…the horror of McCarver should shut Chip, Joe, Don haters everywhere.

Marc Scheinder, have you always been an idiot or did you have to practice at it ? You could surely give lessons now. Go back to sleep until after election day and quit wasting our time with your idiotic comments.

You are criticizing others and you use the term “bloogers?”

I have a serious f-ing question. Why the f is matt diaz on this team? seriously. Its ridiculous acquisitions such as these that make me hate the braves.

The last time my party was in the White House the real estate market totally collapsed and it brought the nation to almost a complete economic/financial failure. But that was Clinton’s fault.

I apologise, but, in my opinion, you are not right. I am assured. I can defend the position. Write to me in PM, we will communicate.
