Yes, that makes it even better, Kat.
August 28th, 20128:59 pm
@TheOnlyBravesFan Oh I am sorry – I did not realize they were counting runs on almost’s these days let me check the score. …. Well you now what you are the nimwit as the score did not change and I see nothing in the box score. Almosts only count in horse shoes and not baseball.

The FISH are the MARLINS, are am I wrong?
how is uggla batting ahead of medlen
August 28th, 20129:01 pm
Hand grenades too!
Uggla should be on the bench. But since the Braves management insist on putting him in the line up, he should be batting 9th because Medlen is a better hitter.
August 28th, 20129:02 pm
So swith hitting Medlin can drive him in!
I was near bottom of page, but I will not repost.
August 28th, 20129:06 pm

So swith hitting Medlin can drive him in!
Yup, and he can play SS also. BELIEVE IN THE MEDS.

Okay, I know it’s bad, but I found this funny.
Just sitting in line at McDonalds, staring at a stream of dumpster juice flowing down the lot. Thinkin’ of Dan.
lol…he’s earned the distinction.

August 28th, 20129:10 pm
how that “topic” moved to Prado I’ll never know but either way I’m done with it; Uggla is playing 2nd and that’s all there is to it

August 28th, 20129:11 pm
the braves had a 6 game winning streak last week, we would have been 1 game back.

August 28th, 20129:12 pm
Could it be, headed for their 5th straight loss, that the National are faltering and coming down to earth? Wish the Braves could take advantage.
Cantore goin nuts in new orleans….
August 28th, 20129:14 pm
It’s a definite wanna win tonight….
We could maybe have a shot at 4 back obviously…
August 28th, 20129:15 pm
if the braves had a 6 game winning streak, we would have been 1 game back tonight. dont think the nats are going to get on another losing streak. didnt take advantage of it.
August 28th, 20129:16 pm
Sidel on the beach getting pummeled by sand is at least as stupid as FG’s usual in game decisions….sigh.
August 28th, 20129:19 pm
phil- Fruti’s in game decisions are not as bad as his before game decisions.
Weather guys pray for storms like funeral homes pray for…well you know.
Gotta make a living I guess, huh?
August 28th, 20129:20 pm
His name IS Crisco!!
Can he pinch hit?
At this moment St. Louis is behind 9-0 and Washington is behind 9-0. We have our best pitcher going tonight. What an opportunity !!!!!
I hope the Braves are not allowed to know this or we will lose 15-0 tonight.
August 28th, 20129:22 pm
Would’ve liked to have seen Ross in there
Yeah, they do….no need to inhale sand, though!
Cards losing to pirates 9-0
Gnats losing to miami 9-0
Dodgers losing to Col 4-0
Gotta win tonight Braves!!!!!!!!!
August 28th, 20129:23 pm
The Fish are giving the Nats a real butt kicking.
August 28th, 20129:24 pm
Yes, George. The Fish are the Marlins. Top ‘o the 9th and still 9-0.
Dodgers haven’t won again since the latest trade have they?
He certainly has, phil.
August 28th, 20129:25 pm
It’s just not very bright to build a city 12 feet below sea level….
Does that even need to be said? I guess it does since they built it
August 28th, 20129:26 pm
I am still trying to figure out why people feel the need to come on here and cut on the man that provides this for us.
August 28th, 20129:28 pm
Yeah, I don’t get the DOB bashing, brian. If you don’t like what he writes, why even come on here?

It’s got everything to do with their own sad existence…
August 28th, 20129:30 pm
It would be one thing if they were kidding around, but some of it is just brutal and senseless.
August 28th, 20129:31 pm
Why are yoy watching the RNC?
That’s crazy that Uggla, who was brought here to be the cleanup RH power guy, is hitting 8th now.
It's over now
We all have to face it – no matter how far his batting average falls, no matter how many errors he makes (even though scorekeepers are really not allowed to give him errors), Dan Uggla will be the day to day 2B. There can be far better options, Dan is their man, unless he is in jail. I don’t know what allure or leverage Dan holds but it is working to the extent of keeping him in the lineup.
The only time Dan sits is when Dan wants to or when the announcers will tell the truth (like Sunday Night ESPN).
I hate it because I want to see the best lineup to see the Braves win and Freddi just does not agree with me – I hate it!!!
August 28th, 20129:33 pm
Okay, all, politics is off-limits on this blog. Could we please change the subject?
August 28th, 20129:35 pm
So, who we blame for all these losses in past week? FREDDI
Regarding New Orleans – Agree with phil
The bigger problem is that our govt. will spend huge bucks they don’t have rebuilding yet again and again it’ll be below sea level and the clock will already be ticking on the next flood.
Same thing with folks that buy that cheap land on the Mississippi flood plain.
If someone buys land real cheap right behind a dam even though they are told not too because it isn’t smart or safe, and they do it anyway, why should the govt bail them out when the dam breaks?
Harsh but …
August 28th, 20129:36 pm
It’s not over yet, It’s over now.
I agree with you. Dan is Fredi’s boy and he’s gonna play, no matter what.
With uggla, jones, and mccann in the lineup tonite, there’s a 90% chance the Braves lose. He just won’t or can’t understand the issue. I’m afraid he is a dumb SOB.
Looks like Strasburg shut himself down tonight! Go Braves!
And, I have never been impressed by Moylan. I think he is toast.

Just a reminder….
August 28th, 20129:37 pm
You’re welcome, Ralph, but I’m not sure anyone is listening.
Some things never change.
August 28th, 20129:40 pm
Jim Cantore is like Dan Uggla. One big moment in 6 months. heh heh
But those delegates ARE fat!
August 28th, 20129:41 pm
Could someone check on Wren and Freddi’s contract for me please.
August 28th, 20129:42 pm
I’m calling on Bud Selig to check into this Fredi G – Uggla “relationship”…there’s just something wrong here.
August 28th, 20129:44 pm
Hey Brava, some folks like attention whether it’s good or bad. Get my point?
Brava – Thanks!!
August 28th, 20129:45 pm
We’ve gone from no religion or politics to both within the same blogs.
I threw one in earlier to though!!
At the beach, when building a sand Uggla, what happens if one digs down essentially below sea level? Yep…..water intrudes and down she goes.
What part of this escapes the good folks of N. Orleans?
So a couple of jerks want to start talking politics instead of baseball because they’re bored? C’mon – pay attention:
Spare us the politics please.

bostonbravo August 28th, 2012 9:42 pm I’m calling on Bud Selig to check into this Fredi G – Uggla “relationship”…there’s just something wrong here.
While you’re at it, you might want to send that picture of Chipper and Prado as well.
August 28th, 20129:47 pm
Good grief, PL, drop it already.
good idea…make Uggla CEO of “Godfather’s Pizza”!!
August 28th, 20129:48 pm
Long time – probably best to zip it before you send someone over the edge…
well…the Marteen…Chip thing was well known around the “Blue Clam”…
August 28th, 20129:49 pm
A sand Uggla, phil? Can it hit? LOL!
August 28th, 20129:50 pm
is this the nats longest losing streak?
August 28th, 20129:51 pm
Long time braves fan
I’m not rich but do meet the other two criteria you mentioned.
BYW, I have a pickup truck, live in the south, hunt and fish, am proud of the southern tradition, like the conferate flag, enjoy hearing Dixie being played but I dispise oppression of any kind against anyone.
Careful with stereotyping!
Long Time: shut up, get out a hole “q odf thr”
August 28th, 20129:52 pm
PL, please stop it. It’s almost game time.
ah, dave obrien ban people talking politics on his bog. just a warning.
Newest Rickymast video This ones about Medlen…..
August 28th, 20129:53 pm
I can’t answer, Long Time….
I will say i detest politics and side with neither side…
But i find humor in fat folks….obviously!
August 28th, 20129:54 pm
The original….Chipper goes yicketty
August 28th, 20129:57 pm
Medlen and this Padres pitcher tonight both look like high schoolers.
Mark – we’ll be in touch….
For all the DOBBER Ditto heads who want to come on here and say thank you DOB for doing your job and we agree with everything you say there are other points of view. It doesn’t make them wrond.
DOB says he is a big boy and can take the heat yet he can’t ask certain questions in the clubhouse because it could offend someone. Which one is it.
August 28th, 20129:59 pm
If anyoe disagrees they are an uncle Tom? you keep on thinking that brother.
August 28th, 201210:00 pm
There’s a reason they don’t allow political talk on the blog.
ACE is as relentless as a pit bull with a piece of raw meat….sigh.
August 28th, 201210:01 pm
ACE You do not understand politics at all. DOB asks the tough questions and in couple of days he is barred
Well I’ll be damned. I knew Paul would not stay on the reservation long.
August 28th, 201210:02 pm
Hi Bat, like old times huh?
I never mentioned suppressed. Never mentioned that I was. Never mentioned I was having a problem. Never mentioned President Obama. Not sure why you want me to answer those questions but choose not to.
BTW, I’d rather watch a turtle breath for hours on end rather than waste a second of my life listening to Bill Mayer ramble on
Time to watch Medlin deal and the Braves bash the ball!
August 28th, 201210:03 pm
DOB – can you ban the political instigator? _ brian
Paul has been banned more times than anyone can remember
Ace this uncle tom lives in Lewisburg, Tenn. You are looking at my real name on the blog. Anyone here can tell you where I live
August 28th, 201210:04 pm
Yes it is, always just a matter of time with him.
August 28th, 201210:06 pm
Pads pitcher not exactly thin…..

got to swing the bat.
Gonna be a long night. Bourn does what he usually does against lefties: strike out. Another soft-tossing lefty on the hill will spell trouble.
Sweet seats, Kat!
We’re not done!
welcome back Sopheee.
August 28th, 201210:09 pm
Uggla dropped to 8th, but Fredi praises him at same time
August 28th, 201210:10 pm
Hi brian, thanks!
Right next to the ball girl.
