And, 2012 EOF says screw you, Soph.
Big DP there, boys!
Meant EOF…sorry again…..oh yeah, yes……..
yep they just keep on coming t-dawg….not
Reed is a backup….
Which is why he’s a backup….easy to understand.
And we’re about to blow this game.
And Cab’s long link has screwed up my page! Grrrrrrrrr…..
The A Bomb
Kirmbrel for the 9th? Never know with Robotzalez.
Nice recovery EOF!
Need insurance bad in this 8th. Real bad.
Love it when that happens – the sound went off just as Powell said, “A ground ball…

sorry CA Brave- I mistakenly pulled up batting average. So SMUG is 13th in fielding and 19th (last) in batting. Point still stands
Never mind….for now at least!
The Baconnator commercial is killing me…..
Kimbrel last pitched on the 17th, hope he doesn’t have any “rust”
August 22nd, 201210:10 pm
Exactly, I consider Meds the ace of this staff right now. Put him in for the WC game, don’t need the opponents to score 4 runs in the 1st
August 22nd, 201210:11 pm
the line about insurance here will never get old
Give chipper a hit!! Lol
Typical Idiot Blogger
Medlen good! Jurrjens bad! Case closed!
I don’t see how that don’t happen more often with the way Zimmerman throws the ball. He will be a first basemen before long…
August 22nd, 201210:12 pm
Atta boy, FF.
Let’s blow Kimmie’s save right here, just to be safe…
Freddie!!! I felt that one coming all night!
can we PLEASE score a run???
wow how do you not send him there…
Now plate em!
August 22nd, 201210:13 pm
Good job, Rossy!
Man, we’d have that insurance if Chipper had any wheels left.
Chipper’s body might have fallen apart if he tried to score from 1st in a close play at home
guess rossy can hit a fly ball
The question was posed on the radio the other day that should the Braves win a wild card spot with enough time to work out the rotation, who would you like to see pitch the wild card 1-game playoff? My preference then is the same right now. It would be Medlen. He is the only one that I would trust to get us to the NLDS.
Good call by Snitker. Injury waiting to happen.
Yes! WTG, Rossy!
FF is swinging much better today, must have spent a little time in the cage today.
And ROSSI – giving us an “insurance” run. Clutch hitting???
Did what you had to do, dumbfounded. Good stuff.
Well done Rossy (And Freddie for getting to 3rd)
we got it now…one more
that is what you do with a runner at 3B and under 2 outs. Great job Ross
Whew! Needed that run.
And we didn’t kill Chipper…
Now we got that one back–great…..here’s a fresh Bourn
August 22nd, 201210:14 pm
Bourn wearing a guard – don’t blame him a bit
August 22nd, 201210:15 pm
Medlen has to crash back to earth eventually….
Freddie did deserve that double tonight. He has crushed the ball but just right at people
Well done, Michael!
Hooters Like Power Guys
They obviously traded Uggla for Infante because Dan is a better fielder, We sure know he can’t hit like Infante. Why did that hater sit Uggla?
Kimmie in the pen sending daggers…
And a “refreshed” Michael Bourn w/a base hit. Oh yeah, another insurance run.
ok now I’m greedy…I want 6 more
Hope the $25 million bench is enjoying this.
Bring in Durbin and rest kimbrel….
nice by Michael Bourn. Nice “defensive” replacement
August 22nd, 201210:16 pm
Now, steal second – or at least get a running start!
Bourn just run it out brother
to whoever said they miss the 2011 version of EOF?
he’s allowed 11 ER in 43.2 IP (3.09 ERA)
In his first 9 appearances of the year, 7 of the ER were allowed.
So if you take those 3 outings out of the mix, he’s allowed 4 ER in 40.2 IP (0.88 ERA)
Either way, since you can’t “take away” outings…..
Since the 9th outing in 35.1 IP, he’s allowed those 4 ER (1.01 ERA)
So, uh…. yeah…. I think save 3 early season outings…. EOF is just fine.
But thanks for your wish.
I’d send him to 3B a this point…make him throw it
We haven’t scored enough! Put up a twelve-spot, you worthless wimps!
August 22nd, 201210:17 pm
would like to see one hit just over harpers head.
Formula Stays The Same--Doesn't It??
Freddi certainly has the good sense not to change lineups tomorrow?
And there goes Kimmie’s save
No save tonight.
speed, speed, and speed. Give that man his extension. Show Bourn the money FW
That’s hustle right there.
thats what i’m talking about
“Yes Fredi, I feel refreshed. Thanks for the day off.’
- Michael Bourn
Bourn just motored by Suzuki
Yes! Great base running!
Too bad we lost the first two, but this has been encouraging.
August 22nd, 201210:18 pm
nats looking human
Gonzalez just read the chapter on speed.
Oh no. He’s back. The godson.
Kimbrel just got robbed of a save opp.,ohh well just get the W.
Goodie goodie, we get to see Uggla strike out tonight.
Uggla? Seriously? Ridiculous.
Kimbrel still needs to pitch the 9th. Been 5 days, he’s loosened up a bunch, but no mound time.
August 22nd, 201210:19 pm
The Braves are finally embarrassing the Nationals after having been embarrassed by them for quite a while.
looks like Fredi still doesn’t know that Dan hits righties better than lefties
Thank you Dan! I needed that to complete my night.
same old uggla
Uggla needs more rest.
Couldn’t get the night off. Could we.
He ain’t hitting his way out of anything, folks….
August 22nd, 201210:20 pm
Why didn’t Fredi just give Uggla the entire night off? No need to bring him in in that situation.
What a worthless bum Dan Uggla is…
put Bourn in CF, Prado in LF and PAstornicky at 2B. If CHipper sits, Prado at 3B and Reed in LF
Most have seen this so many times–I mean the rich guy has to get a break sooner than later; just can’t be that bad…….right guys/gals?
This game would be incomplete without a Dan Uggla strike out. He should have received the entire evening off.
Atlanta tude wins the day NN

smUGGLA = rally killer
Jerry — I honestly didn’t know how you were able to make such an outlandish prediction. You should be banned.
Uggla needs to clear his head for a few days. A pinch hit appearance defeats the purpose.
Also hard to get a good vibe at bat with an isolated pinch hit appearance.
up 4 runs there was no reason for it
what are the run differentials in the games this year? I dont’ recall that many blowouts (and would say coming back from down what 9 is about the worst you can do to a team)
Just the mere sight of Dan makes children weep….
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
