I thought the braves might lose 3-2 but 4-2 I didn’t see. Meds has still only given 2 unearned runs so the prob is not with him. Poor hitting and an error are the reasons.
One game short…to the same team….this will hurt
Warning-track power today… This 1gm playoff format may screw us over, and Meds pitched pretty well too. A fielding and baserunning error would be a hell of a way to lose.
Chipper checked out days ago apparently….
We’re done. Isn’t it obvious.
In case you didn’t know, 0-8…..
If it’s such a sure thing that the Braves are losing tonight, they why are you idiots still here? Misery loves company??
I’ll never understand you idiots!
Train Wreck Bystander
Rally cap time!
Looking forward to DOB article tonight on the lose. Feel sorry for chipper to lose and go out like this tonight, you know he will be crying in the after game interviews. Medlen has the heart but still young. I agree turner field sucks has a curse.
I dropped my fried twinkie
This game is going to the wire for sure………….
Braves #17 Fan
This is gut-wrenching, but I’m still holding on, hoping for something big to happen for the Braves.
October 5th, 20126:59 pm
I do wish that the Braves would learn (and occasionally practice) the art of small ball.
23 game winning steak behind medlen was always going to come back and bite us. Biggest game of the year with the streak on the line, not looking like a good day.
Then again braves do make some good comebacks, fingers crossed
Instead of stringing hits together everyone is back to swinging for the fences like last year.
This new playoff system stinks, I am calling BUD Monday.
Braves are 6-53 this season when trailing after 6 innings.
Bull. We would lose at home if it was best of 13…..
It’s what we do.
Not sure why all the hate towards Medlen. He’s tried to stay outside to the right handed hitters today, made one mistake. Without Chipper’s error the Braves are up 2-1 with their killer bullpen ready. Sad to say but everything turned on that error.
Braves are thenbetter team by 7 games. 1 and done is stupid.
The tomahawk chop looks and sounds ridiculous, it doesn’t motivate the players, and it needs to be retired!
October 5th, 20127:00 pm
I’m one Cards run from tuning back into the real world. April will be here sooner than you imagine.
why is medlen still out there?
Maybe, I just need to get married and bump my wife. It is more exciting than watching these braves.
I’ll join your crossed fingers rally plan Frumpy!
amazing how just couple of innings ago I was on top of the world – now everything feels so empty. Damn Braves – why do I even bother you, never fail to disappoint when it matters most.
One Big Dummy
Here’s the thing about the safety squeeze: It’s not the first time that Andrelton Simmons has bunted in that situation! Whose fault is it that it happened AGAIN, and in the freakin’ playoffs, no less?!?!?!
I thought a lot of the negative posters on here were just one negative poster……and he just showed up…….as his real self……BravesFaninWis………NEGATIVE defined….is he. I think I will leave now….I don’t want to read any more of his negativity…………..he has been on here all year posting how horrible the Braves are……..and they made the playoffs…..and even now….nothing but negativity. See ya….but please become a Brewers fan next year…..MR. NEGATIVITY.
2 ER from Medlen… he battled.
This is unreal… not sure what kind of karma Atl is dealing with but it’s a bad, bad one.
Braves State of Mind @BravesStateMind
Kris Medlen allowed 3 hits and 0 walks through 6 innings. That’s how bad our offense and defense have been tonight.
not over yet guys
October 5th, 20127:02 pm
I effing HATE the Cardinals!
If you look up the word “Choking” in a dictionary after today, you wont see a definition, only the picture of a Tomahawk.
I remember a few years bacl some of the fans here asking for the braves to get Miguel Cabrera, and some saying that he was not a “brave” type of guy because he got drunk a lot. What a bunch of crap.
I hope next year Bud Selig’s Brewers makes the playoffs and are eliminated in a crap game like this.
What a way boys….
That was a strike!!!!
What can we do?
We Will Get Fooled Again
Go to hell, Uggla.
Where the hell was he throwing that?
It is all DOB’s fault, he was way too optimistic on that lead blog……
Hammer the Homer
hey fair-weathered fans……….at least they in a playoff game even if they are losing…………lol
these errors are ridiculous!!! really? this is a playoff team?
what a friggin joke
Holy sht… what a bad time for Uggla to show his crappy defense.
What an embarrassment.
CHOKE TIME!!!!!!!!!! Its stuff like this that really annoys fans. Simple plays and they find a way to throw it away. Every freakin time
Holy cow what the hell..great uggla!
Lil' Barry Bailout
Braves wetting their pants, as they always do in big games.
can we please MOVE uggla off of 2b next year?! good god he’s AWFUL
Atlanta Choke Braves
October 5th, 20127:03 pm
so glad i changed my mind about going to this game
why is medlen still out there??
Self destructing now.
The team with the best fielding percentage making another error, oh fudge.
NO MORE FREDI
FIRE FAT FREDI and give this team a chance in 2013. Wow!
Uggla doing his best to take the pressure off Chipper.
Well, this game and season is coming to an end tonight, so I’ll get on outta here and wait to see what Wren does during the winter to continue the misery. Peace out people!
I would take a bag of used balls for Dan Uggla if someone would just take his salary from us.
Braves = Choke.
We really shouldnt be surprised….
2010 is back…
Cards are in Victory formation….
Nice play, Dan…..
Lol at this point.
Shh come on braves, feel sorry for chipper didn’t see this at all tonight. Fredi will be critiqued, chipper is going to cry during interviews, season was a waste, we gotta start winning the division
Well, I don’t care how your pitcher pitches. When you make two throwing errors to let runners advance on the bases, you aren’t going to be able to win a game! Uggla’s error was even uglier than Chipper’s because he had plenty of time and only a short toss from second to first!
Medlen has to bear down and needs a K after getting the sac bunt runner out at first.
Chuck from Waycross
cards have freese…braves got uggla…and you idiots voted him over phillips to the all-star game…karma is a b….
WORTHLESS DAN WORTHLESS DAN WORTHLESS DAN
CHOKE CHOKE CHOKE
This is pathetic. Should be 2-1 braves. Now we are about to go down 5-2
No, it isn’t a playoff team. The playoffs start Sunday.
October 5th, 20127:04 pm
Medlen won’t get that chance. Fredi with the hook.
This team is just mentally incapable of handling the spotlight. The organization just needs an entire face lift. Been like this in the 90’s and it still remains in 2012. Gotta show Bobby and his boys the door.
Great season, Kris. Sorry you’re surrounded by choking dogs.
O well I doubt any of the braves actually care as much money they are making
I wouldn’t take out Medlen yet. He’s pitched very well. the game should be 2-1 right now. Problem has been the fielding not the pitching.
Hammer the Homer

Dumb comment of the day
October 5th, 20127:05 pm
I just got here and all I read are sorry comments from so-called Braves fans. Seems to be human nature that people like to be negative and feel sorry for themselves – or their favorite team…. the game has nine innings and the Braves are only down by one run – so…. there’s still hope!!! Remember when Sid slid?????
Looking toward to he dob season wrap blog
Okay, Lord, can you hear me? If you are going to do this to us again, at least throw us a bone and have someone ask for Dan Uggla in the off season and take on his salary?
Had fun watching A”s win there games against Rangers. Darn Braves big series or playoff game errors. Everytime we make an error the next guy always gets a big hit.There manager is playing to win takes his starter out with a lead.Medlen still in there if he gives up a run then Freddi the loser will take him out just like Cox always did. Another error darn losers or maybe Chokers is what I meant.Cards swowing us how to play where the hell is Conrad so we can blame him.
Thanks guys!!!! Another ERROR!!!! Another RUN!!!! You guys play like girls!!!
LOL at people calling Uggla out, call out the offense if you want to call anything out. Other than that not much to be said.
Web the best defensive team in the league makes 2 errors that essentially end your season, there is nothing else to call it but a choke. Two years in a row for poor fredi
80% of that error goes to Uggla. I’ll put 20% on the HP umpire not calling that strike 3 when he should have.
jed – OK, fine, so let’s say they move Uggla from 2B. Where? And who plays 2B?
The offense has 9 outs to show us something.
Just don’t get stupid like some on here do. That’s all you can do.
Tough game for Chipper. But we still have 3 more chances. And that safety squeeze call by Fredi…………. I mean what in the heck was he thinking with the pitcher up next?
The offense better come back, it’s not Medlen’s fault we’re losing.
Tom Hart @tom_hart
Kris Medlen deserves better.
The format stunk, but we’ve got to play better than this. Guys have to be pressing. U aren’t the top defense/baserunners then do this crap
Medlen really is the next Maddux. Amazing during regular season and just average in the postseason.
Braves = Choke.
October 5th, 2012
plenty of us aren’t, unfortunately……
Brian from SC
Perfect situation for the greatest strikeout relief pitcher in history. Unfortunately it must be written in the rule book that you can’t use your best reliever until the 9th inning.
Meds wasn’t great but kept his team in the game. Sorry to say streak is in serious jepordy.
October 5th, 20127:06 pm
A little confidence people? Please? Go braves.
Fredi’s decision to bunt, eh? If they don’t come back and win, that and the Jones error did the Braves in…both of them need to “retire”
No way these guys can score 3 more runs.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
