Medlen isn’t struggling with his command. he just isnt getting called strikes on what seems to be strikes
September 19th, 20127:37 pm

3rd time – really, George?…
Hey VJ, at least I said if BRAVES have a desent playoff run FREDI should keep his job.
What strike zone??
September 19th, 20127:39 pm
Constanza won’t even get the ball out of the infield
“Tonight,” his column began, “there is someone I can write of the way I used to write, without reservations of any kind. ”
Pretty nice words Ace, sure DOB appreciates all the goodwill.
Little Georgie !!!!!!!!!!!!! Nice little RBI there.
And it’s hard to score when you don’t get on base. How many 0-fors has Bourn had lately. He’s had plenty of missed opportunities.
2-0 lead for Medlen in the 2nd inning.
September 19th, 20127:40 pm
Constanza deserves to be on the playoff roster baby.
I change my views
there’s the second run, Meds should be set for this game now
FIRE FREDI GONZALEZ
It would have been a win last night if he were not pinch hit for in the 9th!
September 19th, 20127:41 pm
George @ 7:29
Thanks, George. I’m planning to reference that later and now I will not have to go back to the old blog.
And, lest I forget, Uggla w/that stolen base to put himself in scoring position. Always hustling – helps the team.
Here comes the pathetic Bourn. Strike out i bet.
I don’t need to see his at bat to know he will make an out
September 19th, 20127:43 pm
Keep working Johnson and get to their bullpen
Bat, I thought I was back on the old blog when I read George’s comment.
September 19th, 20127:44 pm
SEND JEFF BAKER IN FOR BOURN NEXT INNING.
A lot of folks love to put down on JOSE C, He is not a starter, but he is a heck of a utillity guy, good to have him on roster.
September 19th, 20127:45 pm
Oh look. Michael Bourn struck out swinging on a breaking ball.
September 19th, 20127:46 pm
I get that. George is memorable
I agree, George. He catches a lot more grief than he deserves around here.
September 19th, 20127:47 pm
“Trouble WithThe Curve”…..No this not a Eastwood Movie is the The Bourne Problem.
He can’t hit the Curve..
Well, when you read the same comment for the third time….
Yes Way Josè
September 19th, 20127:48 pm
Get rid of Bourn and start Geoegie in centre next year. He’d be cheaper and faster.
I like Constanza in the mix.
September 19th, 20127:49 pm
September 19th, 20127:51 pm
Meds – Just what the doctor ordered.
September 19th, 20127:55 pm
Meldeen is a total badass. He can even shutdown the blog.
September 19th, 20128:00 pm
I agree, Bat.
September 19th, 20128:02 pm
After hitting 2 DEEEEEEP shots to center, a little bloop ends up tying him with Gehrig – congrats.
Prado with another risky base running to 3rd. If it was on target then he would have been out. Prado isn’t as fast as he thinks he is. Maybe DOB should tell him this
Atta boy, Chipper
Bat is going batty.
September 19th, 20128:03 pm
Chipper – WTF????? Guess he was still thinking about his hit.
What was the old man thinking?
WOW, 2 sac flies? WTG!
September 19th, 20128:04 pm
Chipper ties Lou Gehrig for 58th place on all-time hits list with 2,721.
Good think Prado was hustling home – just beat the double up and got the team a run.
Chipper: “the ballpark man … it messes with YOUR MIND MAN!!!!!”
CHIPPER! I don’t care if he just hits singles. I want him to finish over .300 for year, if hitting singles will do it that is fine
September 19th, 20128:05 pm
Going, Brava? You’re being generous, most would say “gone, long ago”
September 19th, 20128:08 pm
Made me laugh, Bat.
September 19th, 20128:10 pm
He was thinking of fly fishing brian
Bay Area Steve
You’re killin’ it today, Bat. Additional hat-tip for “Double Yikes!,” and “Pastornicky nightshirt.” You win, sir.
Nice start tonight!!
September 19th, 20128:11 pm
I love watching Meds pitch.
September 19th, 20128:12 pm
Let’s keep the picket fence going Bravos.
Chipper deserves to be booed, as some might say…
Mission accomplished then, Brava.
Ha, thanks BAS. I wondered if anyone noticed those.
Ghost of Chipper Jones
September 19th, 20128:13 pm
DOGGIE II is rolling. I don’t like LITTLE DOGGIE because the only thing ‘little’ about him appears to be his stature. Certainly nothing little about his heart and desire, or his arm.
Peanut fussin, I am getting hungrey so outta here. Have a good one y’all. BELIEVE IN THE MEDS. Nite all.
September 19th, 20128:15 pm
Jose Constanza > Jose Reyes
Georgie is at it tonight! Lol
Wow – love to watch him run – lots of speed there, now take 2nd!
September 19th, 20128:17 pm
Medlen or Hudson would start potential WC game
The “Pastornicky nightshirt” one was incredible, Bat. Had me chuckling for quite some time after reading it.
Joe Johnson looks like Tommy Hanson tonight. All he can get over is that curveball.
September 19th, 20128:18 pm
78 pitches already for JJ? Good news for the Braves – gonna see some bullpen tonight
September 19th, 20128:19 pm
September 19th, 20128:20 pm
September 19th, 2012
Medlen or Hudson would start potential WC game
WOW, You just figured that out? We have been saying it for days.
September 19th, 20128:21 pm
Fire Fidel Guillen!!
Bourn comes thru again. He should be benched.
September 19th, 20128:22 pm
Poor Bourn. Nothing goes correctly for him anymore.
September 19th, 20128:25 pm
85 pitches for JJ.
September 19th, 20128:26 pm
Isn’t it fairly obvious Medlen gets the nod october 5th?

This umpire has issues…..
What a doof.
September 19th, 20128:32 pm
Thanks, Brava. I’m from the “one has to give to get” school, so I try to carry my freight.
It’s a good thing Biff is fast. I thought he looked better on defense earlier this year, now not so much.
September 19th, 20128:33 pm
September 19th, 20128:35 pm
A sure way to reduce page views DOB is to have benign comments hang in moderation limbo.
Top of 3rd
September 19th, 20128:37 pm
Fire Davey Johnson!!
Buffalo Bulls hit the hail mary halftime pass on kent state. Lol
September 19th, 20128:41 pm
Just read an article on Josh Hamilton. He would look good in center field for the Braves!
September 19th, 20128:42 pm
Where was Uggla throwing THAT ball?????
September 19th, 20128:43 pm
Did a little ‘brainstorming’ earlier because Meds was on my mind….and in my system. I tried to reach out and shake hands with a stranger at a public place….he asked me if I was meditating and I thought–yeah, that’s the secret to Medlin’s success; he simply meditates
S/O To Mixxo!
September 19th, 20128:46 pm
I keep waiting for Medlen to fall apart. I need to wake up and accept the fact that kid can damn well pitch. He’s a shoe-in for the tie-breaker playoff game.
I just got on a few frames ago…and, as many have said——Homeplate UMP blows!!!
September 19th, 20128:47 pm

Meds is not as sharp tonight. missing the mitt more often.
September 19th, 20128:49 pm
Bourn is playing his way into a contract the Braves can afford.
looks like Georgie might have gained a few pounds this summer. anybody think so?
September 19th, 20128:50 pm
Send constanza to the arizona fall league!
Still 3-0 folks? I’ve been looking at the Leagues down south of the border and the AFL.
September 19th, 20128:51 pm
What’s the scoop on kennely?
Shutout of Marlins still possible
You know i do….
