Dusty Baker had a stroke…oh, man. When did that happen?

Friday…..mini-stroke.

Probably caused by an a-fib episode he had. Hope he’s ok. Should be.

Medlen has done an outstanding job of retiring hitters with a limited amount of pitches tonight. I especially like his multiple strike outs on three pitches.

Any of you bloggers going to be at any of the games this weekend? Hit me up. I’m going to all 3.

Let me go ahead and get this out of the way. I know the reporters have a schedule made out early in the year and that is why Carroll works some series and Mr. Obrien is off.

That having been said and not to steal George’s thunder but for Mr. Obrien to be off on a night when the braves may clinch is strange indeed. Seems it would be all hands on deck for a possible clinch.

Well Lane, if you noticed earlier, David has been busting it working on the special coming out at week’s end….

Perhaps he was too busy today? Hmmmm? Maybe?

Think.

Marlins announcers talking about how well respected Ozzie is and praising him for his honesty. I bet Loria could do without some of that honesty.

That would be akin to covering all the pre-fight intervies etc and not covering the fight.

I agree. Running through a stop sign and having a bang-bang play at the plate is one thing

Running through a stop sign and having the ball cut off is another.

You would really think DOB would want to cover these important games this week.

And you would really think that you would know by now that DOB does not make his own schedule

I owe you an apology…. seems my subbing Alex Smith for Tom Brady jinxed the ‘Niners.

No, no, no…..last thing i want is for him to fall on his face now.

Need him badly if we’re to do a thing.

I predicted last week that the Niners would lose a game to a team they are much better than. It’s what they do. Just hope they got it out of their systems early

Who is this young pitcher with the big era that’s shuting down the Braves’ bats?

T-Dawg

Fredi should have at least 15 more home runs with as much power as he has. If you’ve ever watched him in BP, he simply launches shots into the upper decks of almost every park. I have no idea why this doesn’t translate into the games.

Oh you silly man. What does it matter if O’Brien is there to cover clinching an appearance to some meaningless playoffs. How sad it must be for you to be so blind, but don’t dispare. I,too, was like you only a brief couple of days ago. One of the unwashed masses, thinking playoff baseball was serious.

I’ve been enlightened on this very blog, and now I’m free to see it for what it is, just a few series that tell us nothing about who the best team in baseball is.

Yeah, I took that into consideration. Look, he’s just a kid but like I said, with as much power as he has you would just thing he’d hit more. His power in BP is insane.

Doesn’t the Ted have a larger seating capacity than most other MLB stadiums? Not making excuses, mind you, but that could be why it’s hard to fill up. I don’t live in the ATL, so I’m sure those who do would be able to offer more insight
***************************
THE TED is 3rd largest seating capacity, only YANKEE and DODGER STADIUMS larger.

McCann with an OPS under 700 and a BA under .230. How can the Braves consider paying him $12M next year and not be actively shopping him to an AL team? He had his best year in 2006 and has lost some every year since. Not falling off a cliff every year but does anyone really think he will ever have another 2006 or 2008?

This is disheartening…the Braves have a chance to clinch a playoff spot, with their best pitcher on the mound, and they’re struggling against a kid with a big era.

Best pitcher in baseball and we cannot provide any kind of run support for him.

It’s embarrassing to watch time and time again.

How are we going to win one game against any playoff team when we’re being owned again by a relatively unknown Miami Marlin starting pitcher?
