By the time I get SONY chat help to explain to me how to get my MLB.tv app on my blu ray and a regular tv show up on my tv in Pic in Pic the game will be over. And now even though they have escalated the issue they are on the.. we’re going to give you excuses why it doesn’t work and we’ll blame it on other manufacturers because we can’t tell you why it doesn’t work crap.
Shrewd move by Fredi!
September 5th, 20129:43 pm
Fredi must have heard Frank loud and clear
Even Chipper’s epic walk off HR a mere 48 hours ago isn’t enough to get fans to believe this team is going to do anything and buy a ticket.
It depends ray k — the hardcore fans will show up and I plan to show up for a couple of more games and hopefully a post season game.
The Braves will do fine on weekends but on school days, its tough — this day in time its hard to help the kids play hooky like it was back in the day.
I say cut the school yr from October to early April — that will help Braves attendance. I am actually half serious on that one cause school lectures are boring.
Tonight, obp = no rbi
Again, Great job there Freddi G!!!!!!!!!!
Now, send him onn the tunnel to stat loose or whatever he has to do to go back out there unless we can score again here. If we score send another one out.
Heyward with a bunt??? Sluggers shouldn’t bunt, remember Washington?
the Ghost of Chipper Jones
Tonight is the kind of dip-shyt crap you get from lousy teams when the opposition doesn crush them early. Thanx hitters. MINOR owes you one. FREDDI too for having to use KIMBREL in the eight.
Need to get him in in here…
Look at Jason with a bunt!
September 5th, 2012
So now if we put up a 5 spot here, Kimbrel still gets the save I would think.
He sure does!
Good job, Say Hey!
S neaky Heyward!
The A Bomb
September 5th, 20129:44 pm
HEYWARD: ZERO-TOOL PLAYER.
Heyward is running here…….I think.
September 5th, 20129:45 pm
Great bunt by Heyward. Don said that Heyward could have 12-15 hits a year by bunting. He also said Mickey Mantle got hits by bunting. That would have to kill the no bunt crowd.
how could they not guess ARod?
Jhey needs to go!
Who stole our Fredi,and please return him after we clinch the wild card spot?
September 5th, 20129:46 pm
Now I see why there’s nobody there. This has got to be the most vanilla baseball team I’ve ever seen. Saw a good game today. Like I said earlier the Phil’s were 2-2 WRSP and won 6-2. That says it all Homer Simpson gets all excited about a bunt base hit. I suspect with the excitability or likability of these personality less bozos that’s a big deal.
not an impressive at bat by the Chipster
That move in the eighth shows just how important that loss yesterday made this game.
DAMMED ROX are pulling out all the stops to win. We have to reciprocate because it’s a one-run game.
Way to bear down hitters.
Craig got to make that one run stand up.
That 6.35 ERA is just blinding.
September 5th, 20129:47 pm
no runs again
nat’s with 9 runs wish we could score like that
Why would we not steal when Chipper has 2 strikes and no outs. Do you think hes gonna get a FB with 2 strikes there?
Try the steal with the lefty up
pretty big at bat here by McCann – need that insurance run
Jason has got to run
September 5th, 20129:48 pm
Maybe my new handle IS apropos
Cue Phil Collins. I missed againnnnnnnnnnnnn Oh I missed againnnnnnnnnnn.
Lets keep it alive for uggla

“Great bunt by Heyward. Don said that Heyward could have 12-15 hits a year by bunting. He also said Mickey Mantle got hits by bunting. That would have to kill the no bunt crowd.”
Not only would he have 10+ bunt hits he would surely get some more hits just by the threat of being a bunter.
McCann need to talk with his father and brother again about hitting…
Jason needed to run… Leadoff hit and not a run again. Damn shame.
just not looking good in the batters box
September 5th, 20129:50 pm
It’s almost a sin to win a game that you played this bad in.
KIMMY TIME – Round 2
Mac has just completely broken down. He’s definitely at the end of his time in Atlanta.
I learned from an ortho today that labral repairs are falling out of favor….
So what to do for Mac? Just remove the cyst? Time to do something.
September 5th, 20129:51 pm
Will the braves pick up McCann’s option?
I guess we won’t.
Mickey Mantle was a pro at drag bunting, till his knees went out on him.
Fredi will have carpal tunal from all the cap tipping.
Nolie…noway should he run I want to clear mac
I don’t mind a bunt to get on base. I am just not normally a fan of the sacrifice bunt in about 75% of the situations it’s used.
try to keep up, the no-bunt crowd is against most sacrifices, not bunting for a hit
Way to go McFat. God I hate watching these losers.
September 5th, 20129:53 pm
Braves offense has scored 1 run in their last 22 innings. That’s troubling.
Part of the reason the Braves layed an egg last September, and are on the way to laying one this year is a lack of a productive bench. So few days off for the regulars always take a toll. Look at the depth of the Nationals bench…they did not miss a beat while enduring many injurys and lost days from regulars.
The other reason, is the Braves philosophy/culture of a lack of commitment to offense.
Last year I was hoping they would sign/trade for a productive outfielder…not trading for Uggla. As for next year……I hope they do not sign Bourn, and can trade McCann for something, otherwise he leaves as a free agent.
1 down, 2 to go.
can’t see, can’t run, can’t hit..don’t leave much.
nolie — spot on with the flat offense. Took almost perfect pitching to stave off 3 straight losses.
Man, I’m not sure the offense is going to get going unless the top 5 get red hot again.
Sort of scary to say knowing that 2 of those 5 are gone after 2012, but hey, that’s what the offseason is for.
“It’s almost a sin to win a game that you played this bad in”
how do you think the Rox might feel should they lose? The winning run would be unearned. Pitching wise, it’d be a great win. Hitting wise there’s no way you celebrate it.
1 by Minor, a bunt by Jhey, 1 by Chipper and I missed the other
love that pitch Kimbrel. They have to sit fastball. Great pitch
September 5th, 20129:54 pm
can one of our young lefty hitters become jay bruce this month!!!!!!!!
September 5th, 20129:55 pm
Oh crap, this only means one thing. Kimbrel’s arm will rot and fall off.
Looks like half the pathetic crowd is Colvin’s family. Absolutely horrible attendance.
1 more Kimbrel. Put old man Giambi away
What a way to win.1-0 with an unearned run and 0 for whatever with runners in scoring position. Of course……..it’s September.
Fans are on their feet.
How many earned runs do we have this series
Let’s go Kimmeh, be careful…
good fast ball hitter
It just ain’t fair having to hit against this kid!
September 5th, 20129:56 pm
McCann down to .697, Uggla down to .707.
Strike out Steroid Boy
September 5th, 20129:57 pm
Hold on Hold on
it is horrible attendence. The Braves should be ashamed of their hitting but the people of Atlanta should be ashamed of their support/attendence
September 5th, 20129:58 pm
Kimbrel has not looked sharp tonight. Even the last game when he blew the save, he looked like he was more on top of his game.
3-2 slider is so damn dumb.
Why the damn curve ball..Mac?
Apparently after 3 outs the warranty expires…
Giambi has some pretty good career numbers
The Braves certainly haven’t been giving them incentive to come to the ballpark, A Bomb
there is he guy the Braves wanted this offseason = at 1B
I don’t mind him being careful against Giambi. Guy can still drive the ball a long ways.
Mccann and Uggla 0 for 7. If Ross is healthy enough he should start the rest of the season. He’s not just a defensive upgrade any more.
September 5th, 20129:59 pm
i cannot believe you walk Giambi on a slider…………he cannot catch up with a 96 mph fast ball anymore…. should have blown it by him….
don’t get cute now, just put him away
Throw thr high heat!
Fastball please, Craig.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
