Braves to play 2013 exhibition in Pearl, Miss.

The Braves will play an exhibition to close out spring training next March 30 at Trustmark Park in Pearl, Miss. home of their Double-A team. The game will be played between the Braves major league roster and their Future Stars’ minor league players, as the Braves did this past April in their Triple-A Gwinnett ballpark. The game is tentatively scheduled with a 2 p.m. first pitch.

The Braves-Nationals game at Turner Field on Sept. 15 has been changed from a 7:10 pm start to 4:05 p.m. to accommodate FOX. The O.A.R. postgame concert will still be held after the game.

Didn’t see a thing on your site about sitting in Hank Aaron Seats for under $50 or any of that other crap.

Of course the Braves are losing already, they aren’t in the same league as the Nats. To think just a week ago I thought maybe the Braves had a shot at this division, they sure played me for a fool. This team is only good when they are playing mediocre teams. When they play a elite team like the Nats, they get exposed. Guess I will just sit back and wait for the choke job and the excuses that will follow.

Carroll, can you see Chipper from where you are sitting? Does he have a boo-boo from last night or is he just sitting this one out because he is tired or because it is raining? Didn’t he just have a day off on Sunday? Is his bat important enough to ask him to play or is his glove so brutal that Fredi would rather rest him against the Nats? Do you think it has something to do with Strausburg pitching tonight? That would be my guess.

Carroll, sometimes a woman’s perspective can be very revealing about these ball players. For instance, Dan Uggla has those big Popeye arms. I am thinking he must have a very small

brain and that’s why his at bats are so weak. A smarter player could try to put the ball in play instead of swinging wildly and striking out.

Carroll, did you like the way I did that? I studied journalism at my high school in SW Atlanta and played softball there. That’s why I know so much about baseball and I think I could be of some help to the Braves. Do you think you could get me an interview with JS or FW? I’m not saying I could play at that level but I could probably teach Uggla some things about hitting.

These guys will swing at anything but strikes. Heyward and Freeman have swung at pitches 3 feet in front of the plate. These guys actually think they can beat out the Nats for the division? Best joke I have heard all year.

Here comes Mr. Strikeout Dan Uggla. Wow, he actually flew out instead of striking out, who would have thunk it?

Damn McCann, if you needed a invitation to swing at a fastball over the middle of the plate, i could have over nighted you one. Having eye problems again? Because you sure didn’t see those fastballs did you?

Carroll, don’t you think it would have been nice if Chipper had played tonight and tried to lead his team by example? For instance, what if he had said something like, “Win one for the Chipper”? I am thinking he may be out of the lineup some more when they face the really good pitchers like Strausburg. And Carroll, have you talked to Dan Uggla about what I asked you yesterday? Did you ask him if he could make contact and put the ball in play with 2 strikes?

This team is a f’n joke. Time to clean house, they aren’t going anywhere with a bunch of over paid, under achieving players, so let them walk and replace them with cheap players that will bust their ass. Get rid of that useless waste of space manager along with them. Start from scratch and maybe someday you will be as good as the Nats are now. Nowhere near as good as the record indicates. They got there by beating mediocre teams and getting beat up by the good ones. The only thing good about this collapse is that every coach on this team should be shown the door. If this sad ass excuse of a ownership doesn’t make a change, I won’t support this team until they make that change or sell the team. What a disgrace this franchise has become.

A week ago everyone was so positive, then they hit a little bad streak and now you guys wanna burn the stadium down. Stand behind your team like a true fan! You fair weather fans make me sick.

Wow boys, when you said you were ready to take on the Nats, I think everyone expected much more than this performance. I said before this series started that this series would expose the Braves as either contenders, or pretenders. Looks like you guys are a bunch of pretenders.

And no, I don’t want to burn the stadium down. Just because the team that plays in the stadium blows every chance they have, doesn’t mean the stadium sucks. Turner Field is a beautiful field.

“the Braves major league roster and their Future Stars’ minor league players”

Great news!!

Never gonna happen

The Bravos aren’t as good as the Nats. This series shows that. The odd thing is the Braves franchise has always had trouble with the Nats franchise, even when the Nats were the Expos. Remember back when the Expos were the joke of the league they would still give the Braves fits. Now they are the class of the league, and, well…..
The Braves are playing for the WC. Gotta get past what will possibly be a sweep by the Nats. I see tomorrow being a 1-0 or 2-1 game. Medlen will keep it close, the offense will make sure Meds gets no support.
I’d love to hear why Uggla keeps getting on the field. I’d also love to hear why not sitting Mac for a week or so is not a good idea. He is NOT doing anything to help right now. Uggla hasn’t all year.
We are running out six bats every night, and Janish is not that great as a hitter, either.

All talk no walk for this team. Swinging at pitches 3 feet in front of the plate, swinging at the first pitch they see, even down by 3 runs in the 9th inning. You got Uggla and McCann up late in the game and both swing at crap pitches to pop out and ruin any chance they had at tying the game up.

This team has absolutely no heart. They all were quoted a few days ago saying how they like being in this position, and that every game from here on out counts, and yet they still flopped big time in this series. Not only will they now not win this division, but they will have to battle just to be one of the two wild card teams, and everyone knows how this team performs when they have their backs against the wall, they choke. So I will expect a little more of the same that happened last season, either they will choke and miss the playoffs entirely, or they will be one of the two wild card teams, and get beat in the head to head game. Either way this team is a huge disappointment. So thanks for nothing boys, the focus is now on to the upcoming NFL season.

Bottom line the Braves need ownership that cares about the team winning. Liberty Media wants the Braves to be good enough that the company gets a huge return on it’s investment, that is all. Has anyone from ownership ever talked about their commitment to winning? What we end up with is a mediocre team that is just good enough to fool us now and again into thinking they could win. I wish that they spent as much time trying to build a winner as they spend time coming up with asinine slogans like “This is why we chop” etc. Welcome to Brave’s Country!
